It was a very productive year for our club and it certainly kept your commodore and board members busy dealing with many critical issues that will affect our club for years to come.
There still is plenty of work to be done around our clubhouse, docks, and grounds. Although we made great progress on our deck it is still not completed and I’m looking forward to finally getting the project completed.
The board and dock committee are discussing ways to accommodate members who use their vessels regularly but are dealing with low water issues. We may in fact be asking members who do not use their vessels to move to other slips to help out with this situation until our dredging is completed. I ask that everyone affected be open minded and accommodating.
Please continue to support your club during the off season due to the fact that our fixed costs do not change much even though the boating season has ended. Also please make an effort to attend as many meetings as possible, get involved and help to continue improving this great club for all the members.
We have a Friday night dinner scheduled for January,11th starting at 6. Billy will be serving meatloaf with corn and mashed potatoes for $8. Come on down!
Next general body meeting will be on January 22nd at 7pm!
NOTICE: General Body Meetings are now scheduled to begin at 19:00 hours (7:00 PM) 4th Tuesday of each month
Didn't get your bill yet? Be sure we have the correct contact information. Resignation letters should have been submitted before the end of December. If you need an extension for your dues payment due to hardship, requests should be submitted before the Board meeting on the 3rd Tuesday in January.
Happy New Year to all,
