The Waterfront Committee will assign slips after the January Board Meeting. You will be notified of your slip number in January. Also a sheet with the slip numbers will be posted on the shed. If your slip is going to be vacant or out for repair in the time you requested, you must notify me or I will assign another boat to it.

The early and sudden arrival of unseasonably warm weather thawed our roads early and quicker than the norm. This, along with the accompanying rain, turned many sections of our roads into mud bogs.
Due to the early arrival of the warm weather and the roads softening up, they were posted on March 7, 2016.
Questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 864-3992.
