North Carolina is still in Phase 2.  We are sounding like a broken record but the Board decided to cancel this meeting.  It just isn’t worth it taking a chance to put a member's health in jeopardy for a meeting.   We have no significant issues before us other than Election of Officers.  As you know with the Littleton Festival cancellation, the Safety Trailer will remain parked for the rest of the summer.  I’m hopeful we can at least meet once to have the election.   We need a new President to replace Brian so if you are interested please let a board member know.  

In case you didn’t hear, the Board agreed to cancel our June monthly meeting due to Covid-19.  Assuming we can get out of Phase II and infection rates decline, we are hopeful that the last Wednesday in August might just work.  If you see a board member in town, let us know if you would be interested in having dinner at Kennon House.  

i took the photo below the other night out near MM 4.   I didn’t notice the other boats doing the same thing until later.

Published on behalf of the County of Brunswick County -  Stay Clear of Hazard Buoys  

This a reminder to all users of Lake Gaston to practice safe boating.  The County of Brunswick (Pea Hill Creek and Poplar Creek) has installed buoys for your safety.  They provide warnings, information, mark underwater hazards and provide a system for navigation.  Unfortunately, we have noticed an uptick in damages to buoys.  Damages to buoys will result in fines.  

Please take care while boating and enjoy your time on Lake Gaston!  

To report damaged buoys, please call the County of Brunswick at 434-848-3107.
