And here is the "permanent fix" (we hope) to our access road.
Thanks to Jim Dawson for the photo.


January 2023


Jim Dawson & Robert Babo took these photos of the "temporary fix" of our access
road which failed after the heavy rain fall this early January. Fortunately no one was
injured but a garbage truck was unable to leave our property.  Co Co County
repaired the road with another "temporary fix" in time for our January meeting.

August 2022

A "special" special BBQ event was held at the Club on August 20th at the request of Carl & Elaine Rasmussen to say goodbye to the many friends made over the years as Club members and avid boaters. Carl & Elaine now reside in Angier, North Carolina to be near family and the support folks usually need in their senior years.

Their beautiful boat "Morning Mist" will find a new skipper. Carl has taken up a new hobby in that he is now a licensed Amateur  (Ham) Radio Operator. I'm sure he will make many new friends on the air. His son Carl is also licensed and lives nearby. Elaine's dad was also a Ham. Carl was able to request and obtain his old call-sign (WA6ODA)  through the "vanity call-sign program" authorized by the FCC.


Carl & Elaine Rasmussen - August 20, 2022



The Rasmussen's & the Coach's go way back to the
days when their participation in Scouting made a real contribution to many of the youth in the community.
Erick & Lanette are Son and Daughter-in-Law of Carl & Elaine. They live in Iowa and escorted their folks out to California.



Lots of Sportsmen turned out to wish Carl & Elaine a fond & loving fare well.

First image returned by the new Webb Space Telescope. This is a view of a very tiny section of the early Universe. The light seen here is estimated to have left these galaxies around 13 billion years ago, not long after the Universe was created. This is the farthest mankind has ever been able to look back in space & time.
