MBYC is run by volunteers. Members are involved in planning, staffing, maintenance, cooking, gardening, decorating, photography, construction, and management. This keeps the costs low, but more importantly,  by working together we form a community.  When you work on a committee or crew with someone, you will get to know them. Different people participate at different levels, but everyone is expected to participate in running the club. A great way to meet everybody is to bartend, we have 112 licensed volunteer bartenders. We have all sorts of committees, and work parties. There is something for everyone. Volunteering is mandatory for moorage. Every year moorage holders and those on the wait list submit an annual activity report which is evaluated by the moorage committee.
