Already have some give aways. Jim has been doing an amazing job as Commodore this year with securing prizes and memberships. Make sure you thank him. Thank your fellow comrade, David for donating chips and drinks at every event, and Jim and Dina Freeling for their extra cash donation. Download a form from the sidebar for your friends.

  • Boat-In-Movie
    The night was perfect with cooler temperatures and a sky full of stars. A large houseboat arrived just in time for the start of the movie. We're sure their guests will talk about this event for years. The applause from all of the watchers at the end of the movie made all of the effort worthwhile. Thanks to the fishing boats, pontoon boats, and the houseboat, we may do another movie soon.
