Rocking the Docks at Flotilla
Highlight of March Dinner Meeting

Our 24 March 2018 dinner meeting took on a different tone as we celebrated our docks being refurbished at Flotilla Island with a pot luck dinner, a few rounds of "Name that Tune" and a warming bonfire.

Cdr RJ presented an informative program about USPS branding efforts and how it has given us a new way to market ourselves as America's Boating Club of Lake Murray. He also had the pleasure of swearing in three new members: Sarah Gavin and Mary and Elvin Ventresco.

But the highlight of the day was arriving to find our docks refurbished thanks to Mark Burtis and his team of helpers: Norm Agnew, David Allen, Tim Barnhill, RJ Becht, Charlie Bruce, Dan Drake, Jason Simmons, Mike Urquhart and Elvin Ventresco. Together they replaced damage decking, re-secured cleats, replaced the ropes between the pilings at the shore end of the dock, and power washed and stained the entire surface. A special thanks to Norm Agnew and Agnew Lake Services for donating time, equipment and floats to replace the three bad floats that were causing the end of the dock to sit dangerously low in the water.

Don't miss an opportunity to check our good looking dock by opening the slide show below to see photos of our members efforts and the fun everyone had during our pot luck monthly dinner meeting.
