Lake Murray Power Squadron Kicks Off 2018
With Annual Oyster Roast/Shrimp Boil

About 100 Lake Murray Power Squadron members and their guests enjoyed a terrific oyster roast on 20 January 2018 at Flotilla Island, especially since the weather was much nicer than the previous week.

The day included Cdr RJ Becht swearing in a new member and one of our youngest guests winning a bottle opener and engraved oyster shucker gifted by The Charleston Shucker Company for the raffle.

Before the oyster roast got underway, members met to discuss what cruisers the squadron will host during 2018. Check the 2018 Cruise Schedule on the website. Cruises also are listed on our calendar.

All told, P/C Lee Ayers, SN cooked 420 pounds of oysters and 80 pounds of shrimp. A special thanks to P/C Janice Ayers, AP for the side dishes and to our member volunteers who set up the building for lunch. Last, but not least, thanks to all the members who assisted with the clean-up after eating all those oysters and shrimp.

Highlighting the afternoon was preliminary wine tasting to promote our upcoming wine and dine, scheduled for 9 June at Flotilla Island. We ended the day with a wonderful bonfire and many shout outs to P/C Mike Kirk, SN for the new wooden benches around the fire pit that were enjoyed.
