To begin with, I’d like to thank all of you for bearing with us as we continue to work out of our temporary offices. It has been a little bit of a challenge for us, but we understand it is also a challenge for you. As we mentioned before, we will make arrangements at the marina by the time the boat ramp opens to take care of your needs on site, even though our offices won’t be move in ready at that point.
We will open the ramp when the lake is still a few inches below full pool for those of you who can get your lift lower or don’t even have one. Please be aware that folks who live in shallower areas may need to wait to get their boat all the way to their house. I would like to give you a date, but we will just have to monitor the lake and alert you as the time approaches. The current lake level is displayed on the home page of our website for your convenience.
As in most drawdown years, there are many waterfront projects around the lake in various stages of construction. Our experience tells us that even when you take precautions, construction debris can get away from you and float away. With the lake reaching full pool soon, these wood scraps and whatnot will become hazards. Please police your construction site and make sure contractors working for you are being conscientious about their debris. Our crews have been picking boards out of the water when they find them, but a skier or wakeboarder may find them first.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns and we will keep you updated on the ramp status.
