Ahoy! I hope everyone is handling the heat and staying cool!

If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the Big Deck – Tom Carter,
Matt Collins & Jim Greene installed a retractable awning over the bar area.
This really helps shade the end of the bar.

Thank you, Tom, Matt & Jim for taking the time to install.
I need to say “Thank you”, to Steve King for
planting flowers
in the pots on the deck and front flower bed. Steve stops by twice
a week and waters them as well. “Thank you” to Richard Lidke for
donating the hanging flower baskets.

The Big Deck looks beautiful !

Poker Float is July 28th. I am in need of volunteers.  
I am looking for two more piers on the lake and volunteers to
help with sign in, running raffles and maybe running a pier.
If you haven’t signed up to participate please do so.
If you don’t have a boat and want to participate, please sign up
and mark need a boat, I am sure we can find a ride for you.
I need to know how many people plan to attend so we can make sure food doesn’t run out.

Mark your calendar for August 11th (The Luau). Tickets will be available soon.
I will email as soon as they go on sale. Point-N-Fingers will be playing.

Tickets will be available for either dinner and band or band only.

Kitchen Committee is working hard on making improvements to the
dinner menu and specials. For August, we are going to try a second
Steak Fry on August 17th. This can happen if we can get two volunteers
to cook the steaks.
 If you are interested please contact, Jed Runnells,
Mike (the cook) or myself. We supply everything for cooking,
we just need the cooks.

There were a lot of suggestions for food changes in the survey taken a
few months ago. So, they have taken those suggestions and are putting
a new menu together.
 I will email everyone once the new menu
is completed and watch the sign out front for specials.
Please stop in and check it out.

I know that this sounds early, but we need to start thinking about the
2019 Board of Directors. If you are interested in a position, please contact
one of the board members or myself.
 We will be more than happy to sit
and explain all positions and what is involved.

Remember this is our club, anyway you can help, helps our club to be
“A Better Place to Be”.

See you at the Club!
