Summer is officially here, so the Fourth of July Pig Roast can’t be far away.  While the real 4th is on Wednesday this year, we are going to cheat and celebrate a little late and host the event over the weekend of July 6th-8th.  The plan is to do the set up work on Friday, cook and eat on Saturday, and clean up on Sunday.  This year we are hoping to again have the floating dock towed over to the point across from the marina’s houseboat dock where folks and stuff will be picked up and dropped off.

Here is the plan. 

On Friday around noon we will carry the tarps, grills, tables, and all the other stuff from the sailboat dock to the site and do some of the initial set up work.  If you have some spare time, come up to the lake and give us a hand.   You can join the campers on the hill for supper; just bring your food for the grill.  And, you are welcome to camp with the crowd; just bring your tent.

On Saturday the meat will go on the fire in the early morning and cook all day.  You can come over, lend a hand, watch it cook, drink a beer, chop some wood, and solve the world’s problems.  For those present at noon, we will have a quick lunch of chicken BBQ.   Just bring a chair and spend the day in the shade.

Later Saturday the real event will happen.  Supper will be served at 6:30, but you will need to come earlier to avoid a last minute crush at the dock.  You can bring your own boat over and tie up on the buoy line, come over in your dinghy, or hitch a ride on one of the motor boats.  Clarke Lucas will again be operating his ferry service.  Just hail ‘No Wind’ on VHF 16 to arrange a ride.  Don’t wait to the last minute; Clarke likes to eat too.  Supper is a $7 feast of BBQ pork, chicken, beans, hush puppies, and slaw all washed down with a little beer or soft drink.  Bring your money (correct bills will help!), a chair to sit on, and a dessert to share.  The plan is to have food for about 70 people.  No reservations are needed, but if you are bringing a crowd, let Adair Murdoch ( know.  After supper you can camp in the woods, sleep on your boat at the buoy line, or head back.

On Sunday we will have a pancake breakfast on the sailboat dock at 9, then go over to the point to clean up the mess.
