Grill Team

If you are a member of the Oak Harbor Yacht Club and ever cooked a burger or steak on our amazing grill, have you wondered how come it is always so clean? It is the OHYC Grill Team (“the Grill Team”) that makes it all happen. “The Grill Team” is a group of Club members that volunteer to join in the early Monday morning grill cleaning. These volunteers show up bright and early on Mondays at 7:00 am and usually complete their cleaning, along with other tasks by 9:00 am. The grates are cleaned with a drill using a wire brush attachment. The grill is scrubbed to remove all the splatter from the grilling that occurs the previous week. Once a month “the Grill Team” does what is called a DEEP cleaning. All the components of the grill are disassembled and cleaned. Pieces that have failed are replaced.

“The Grill Team” conducts other tasks to keep our Club facility clean and safe allowing the rest of the members and visitors to enjoy their time at the Yacht Club.


1. Pickup trash around the club

2. Take the bottles to the recycle station across from the club

3. Take cardboard to recycle pickup in front of the club

4. Plus, many miscellaneous tasks to make sure the club house is ready for members.

After the work is done “the Grill Team” are treated to coffee and a fabulous breakfast prepared and served up by member Ted Mihok. This makes for great fellowship with Club members laced with great stories, good humor, discussions of historical events, current events, and of course boating.

If you are available Monday mornings, consider volunteering for this opportunity to be a part of an elite group of members, a group that the Yacht Club affectionately calls… “THE GRILL TEAM”.
