I'm please to report, we're continuing improvements at the Club.  Here's a few of the updated maintenance items:

  • The Fishing Bay Dock has been repaired and is open for use.
  • Pilings around the Jackson Creek Docks are being replaced this week.
  • The Junior Field is open for Junior Program participants' boats.
  • Bathhouse restrooms will reopen Friday morning.
  • The Clubhouse, Fannie's, all porches, and the pool remain closed.
  • Additionally, the Fishing Bay Dock is not suitable for overnight dockage  - a number of pilings are aging and cannot take the strain.

I'll keep everyone posted on our progress.
