2019 Welcomed With Annual
Oyster Roast/Shrimp Boil

About 100 Lake Murray Power Squadron members and their guests enjoyed a terrific oyster roast with beautiful weather on 26 January 2019 at Flotilla Island.

All told, P/C Lee Ayers, SN cooked 360 pounds of oysters and 70 pounds of shrimp. A special thanks to P/C Janice Ayers, AP for the side dishes and to our member volunteers who helped set up the building for the feast. Last, but not least, thanks to all the members who assisted with the clean-up after eating all those oysters and shrimp. Janice also was kind enough to donate some beautiful handmade coasters that were sold with proceeds going to our 2019 Repairs and Maintenance Fund.

The one drawback to this year's event was the issue encountered with our bathrooms and an island full of members. You will see the "brain trust" standing outside diagnosing the problem that day if you open the slide show below. We are happy to report that subsequent to the Oyster Roast, the drainage problem was tackled by one of our new members. A big thank you to Steve Crater and his crew, who volunteered to take change of the project. By the time he was done, roots in the system were removed, a new cleanout was installed, and a pit was built to keep the roots out and allow easy access for maintenance and trouble shooting in the future.

Take a look at the photo gallery to see what you missed, including the obligatory bonfire that wrapped up the day's events.
