What a Great Day!!!!!!!!!
 

If you missed the CAST event yesterday you missed a really great day at the lake.

CAST for Kids and Lake Murray Yacht Club teamed to bring this special day to almost 40 kids and families.

We had boats and fishing, and fire trucks, and highway patrol boats, a big Easter egg hunt and lots and lots of food. 

You will not want to miss this awesome event next year, was just a beautiful way to start off the new lake season. 
 
Big thanks to our Event Sponsors Ron Fields and Diana Baldwin.  Even in spite of surgeries and the flu, they worked hard and made this happen.

Thanks to Spyglass and Lake Murray Marina and Phil and Dee and Jacob for all the help and use of the warf and marina facility.

Out with the Old - In with the New

The LMYC Buoy Team completed diving and tether repair on all LMYC Mooring Buoys this weekend and began the task of removing and replacing old failed buoys with new shiny ones and new numbers.

The remaining buoys will be refirbished with new numbers and replaced if bad over the remainder of the Summer.

Another BIG thanks to North Texas Marine for loaning us this beautiful camo work boat that has been so incredibly helpful working with the buoys.

NEW MARINA ENTRANCE BUOYS AND LIGHTS

Marina Management and Personnel, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and Lake Murray Yacht Club all came together last Friday to deploy 2 new Marina entrance LIGHTED Marker buoys.

LMYC donated much of the material, OHP helped to locate the markers in the correct location and Marina personnel and equipment set the new solar LED lights held in place with 300 lb anchors and new galvanized chain.

July 3 is a moonless night and we hope all will enjoy the new lighs as you return to the Marina after the fireworks show.

Thanks to everyone, Chad from the Marina, Officer Groeber from OHP, and the LMYC for this great improvement to our Marina.

Buoy Restoration Under Way
Buoy Restoration Under Way
29 Dives - 20 Buoys With New Tethers
LMYC Members spent most of the weekend diving and restoring tethers on the lake's mooring buoys.  Scuba J made 29 dives inspecting tethers and anchor blocks and added new wire rope tethers to 20 buoys.  With only 5 more dives remaining, attention will now move to replacing damaged buoys, getting new numbers and reflectors in place, and hopefully anchoring some new buoys at approved locations.

A Big thanks to NORTH TEXAS MARINE OF GAINESVILLE for loaning their maintenance boat for the effort.  The job would have been almost impossible without that work boat.
