Dear Members,

Hope everyone is doing well in these challenging times.  Many of us have found the lake to be an even better place to be this summer to help ease our stress and do something more “normal”.

The LMYC board members recently had conversations about the status of the Club and have taken actions to fulfill our obligation to manage the Club’s activities.

As you know, the Annual meeting required by the bylaws was cancelled due to COVID concerns.  The minutes of the prior year annual meeting and the prior year financial statements are required to be presented at the Annual meeting.  The Board has decided that in lieu of rescheduling the meeting, it is appropriate under the circumstances to send the minutes and financial statements to the members for review and approval.  Both are attached.  If you have any questions or concerns about either of these documents, please let us know.  If we receive a significant amount of feedback with corrections or concerns, we will regroup.  If we do not receive much feedback, the minutes and financial report will be considered approved.

The other order of business at the annual meeting was to fill two vacant Board positions.  Linda Lambert and Shannon Brady’s terms expired.  The nominating committee had prepared a slate of nominees that would have been presented at the annual membership meeting.  The nominees were Linda and Shannon.  The Board has the authority to fill vacant positions on the Board.  As such, the Board voted to reappoint Linda and Shannon as Board members.  We’re glad to have them continue their tenure on the Board.

The Board discussed activities and decided that we will not have any activities this summer due to COVID concerns.  This includes the Poker Run.  We do not feel it is appropriate to encourage the close contact that would result from having our usual events. 

CHECK BACK IN AUGUST ABOUT COMMERATIVE COVID POKER RUN TEE SHIRT.

Because on the decision to not have any activities, we also decided we would not assess dues for this year.  If you were a member last year, your membership will automatically be extended to this year.  If you have already paid dues for this year, you have a few options – request a refund, change your payment to a donation, or apply your payment to next year’s dues.  Please let Terri Pinkston know via an email to lmyc.oklahoma@gmail.com which option you choose. 

Please reach out to a Board member (all are listed at lmyc.net) or respond to this email if you have questions or concerns about any of the information in this email.  Stay safe and enjoy the rest of this year’s lake season!

What a Great Day!!!!!!!!!

CANCELLED
 
CAST is scheduled for April 11, 2020

Thanks to Event sponsors Ron Fields and Diana Baldwin. 

Please contact them or email the club if you can help.

If you missed the CAST event last year 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 30 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 this year, it is just a beautiful way to start off the new lake season. 

It was really fun to watch this all come down.  So many people having a great time bringing their efforts and talents together to make a very special day for these kids.

Buoy Boys Back in Action.

The Buoy Boys have been back in action, with the new buoy work boat.

Over the past 3 weekends, 8 new buoys have been placed in empty coves.

The Boys were in action Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this weekend, placing 2 new mooring buoys, and 2 new no wake buoys off of breakwater.

Buoy face lifts have begun with buoys getting new numbers and stripes and reflectors.

The buoy boat allows us to drive over a buoy and pull it up on a hoist so we can access the entire buoy and refirbish or replace.

4 more new buoys are scheduled for later this summer.

Thanks, thanks, thanks to the guys.

Jay Cantrell, Ron Fields, Mike McKenzie, Bill Mullins, Glen Pinkston, and Steven Thomas.

Special thanks to Guest Star Ben Gadd who delivered pizza to the hungry crew in Cove 57 Friday afternoon.

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.
