Main Pier has many exciting activities at and near the marina. We have annual picnics, fishing tournaments, and much more. Check back here often for news, event photos, and information you'll want to have a safe and enjoyable boating year.

Al Pollum has been a mainstay in the marina, and has probably helped every owner more than once - certainly me many times over. He is is in the hospital recovering from surgery (not virus related), and I would like to request that we keep him in our prayers as he recovers. We wish you well, Al, and look forward to seeing you around the marina soon! 

Based on guidance from the state and federal government, the Board of Directors has decided to delay the Spring 2020 opening of the marina due to the COVID-19 virus.

The water will remain off until further notice, and there will be no servicing of the porta-johns or trash pickup. The regular bathrooms remain locked, and the board strongly recommends avoiding use of the clubhouse since we will not be doing any cleaning or maintenance. The fish cleaning building will also remain locked since there is no water service at this time. 

The board members regret having to make such a decision, yet recognize that they have a duty to protect all of us as well as comply with government orders. (From a government perspective, a marina is considered a non-essential business). Once new guidance is given by the government to allow marina activities to commence, they will schedule the services to re-open as soon as possible.  Remember that the board members are slip owners too, and are as anxious as the rest of us to get on the water and get back to our normal lives.

We are sad to note the passing of Ron Baldas this morning. 

Please refer to the Ronald Baldas Obituary for information on visitation, funeral arrangements and memorial suggestions. You may also share a memory or leave a message for the family on the tribute wall in the online obituary. 

We will all miss him and send our prayers to the family. 

Due to continued freeze warnings, the water will be shut off Friday, Oct. 11, 2019. Today (Tuesday Oct. 8) my car recorded a temperature of 31° at the high school at 6am. 

We are sad to share this announcement of Ted's passing.

Please stop by the website above, share a memory and view the Visitation and Memorial Service details.

 2019 Risk Benefit Statement

The pump out system is working again. If you have any problems with it, please do not attempt to repair. Contact Gene or one of the board members to report any issues. If you are unfamiliar with the system, please ask for assistance the first time.

This is also a good time to remind those that have a removable porta potti that there is an adapter for you to use the pump out system. Please do not dump porta potti waste into any of the portable johns.
