LMPS Members Fill June 2019

with Fantastic Boating Activities on Lake Murray

We started the month with a delightful cruise up Lake Murray to visit LMPS members Betsy and Rick Agar. The low bridge was a bit exciting for Lisa and Jimmy Wilson, but some careful maneuvering got them through and on to the Agar's dock where we rafted up for a delightful afternoon. Betsy and Rick treated us to some wonderful smoked salmon and brisket, while the rest of us brought along a covered dish to share. Especially popular were the Dove ice cream bars ─ a great way to cool the day until we found a nice place to raft up and swim on the way back to Flotilla Island. All told, 32 accepted the Agar's hospitality. Some came by car while a dozen of us found room at the dock by rafting along side each other.

The Clouds Creek cruise was a terrific start to June that go event better by the middle of the month when we hosted our first Log Jam of the season at No Name Cove, with 25 boats and 61 members participating. What can be better than rafting up with your boating friends on Lake Murray for a day of sunshine and floating in the water ─ truly the best way to beat Columbia's heat!

We wrapped up the month with a pig pickin' to celebrate of the Fourth of July on 28 June in conjunction with the annual fireworks sponsored by the Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Board. There was a crowd of 112 squadron members, friends and family to enjoy P/D/C Jim Rakes' pig and grilled chicken, along with his famous BBQ sauce. Many thanks to Ed and Barb Garbe for their assistance with the pig and all the trimmings along with all the other helpers that made this event a success!

But let's not forget about our Fabulous Flotilla Fridays, where members come by boat and car to enjoy each other's fellowship, talk boating, share a covered dish; and, sometimes we even get serenaded by someone with a great set of pipes! Our two Flotilla Fridays in June brought out 16 boats and 35 members to enjoy an evening on the lake.
