Summer Fun with Lake Murray Power Squadron

It was a fun-filled June and July 2016 for members of the Lake Murray Power Squadron. On 17-18 June there was our annual Member Appreciation Lunch, which was preceded by a Flotilla Friday and following lunch on Saturday members cruised to No Name Cove for the summer's first Log Jam. If you missed Log Jam #1, be sure to put Log Jam #2 on your calendar. It is scheduled for Saturday 13 August.

The July Fourth brought a long weekend filled with squadron activities, including a terrific BBQ lunch prepared by P/D/C Jim Rakes, who was assisted by his wife Betty and daughter Heather. The weekend started with a Flotilla Friday, but the highlight of the weekend was the annual fireworks display Saturday evening that is sponsored by the Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Board. According to WIS-TV, it took 1,800 shells, 800 hours of labor and a year of planning to make the 25-minute show absolute perfection. Sunday and Monday found folks rafting up around the lake and trying to keep cool by just floating in the water as the Midlands began a record-breaking number of triple-digit temperature days!

Wrapping up the slide show below are scenes from our Saturday 9 July small boat cruise to Lake Greenwood, S.C. It had been several years since the squadron had taken this cruise and R/C David Allen enjoyed introducing it to a group of 10 boats and 25 members. It was a great day trip and everyone seemed to enjoy the hospitality at Harris Landing where we enjoyed pimento cheese burgers and added our "signed" dollar bills to the wall decoration.

Look closely at the photos below - just click on the first thumbnail and the slide show will open for you to manually scroll through. If you look closely, you can see that our June-July activities yielded another Rusty Anchor nominee and a Bent Prop nominee (well, not exactly a bent prop, but there was a towline required)!
