May 2018 Newsletter

President’s Message

Hello Everyone,

     I hope everyone had a good winter, and are as happy as we are, that the snow and cold weather is behind us for a while.

     We have been busy getting the Marina open for May 12th with Security Guards in place, and electric & water available. In preparation of the opening, we replaced many missing boards, numbered the slips, and will continue throughout the season to do any maintenance that is required.

     Remember, this year additional security is available for your boat through Black Hawk Security. To be able to view your boat 24/7 from your phone or computer, call Brian at Black Hawk 888-257-5702 for more information.

     Boat slips are still available and can be reserved by calling Kevin Collins at the MBPOA office at 631-399-6111.

  • MBPOA stickers must be applied to boats, trailers & cars
  • Trailer parking is North of the ramp
  • Electric outlets are available for recharging, but not for continuous plugin
  • Hoses must be removed from spigot after each use
  • Trash is carry in-carry out
  • No wooden ladders permitted; aluminum ladders available for purchase; see security guard
  • Cleaning of fish in Marina is not allowed.
  • Absolutely No power washing of boats at Marina

     As you may have noticed, we had fencing installed around the perimeter of the clubhouse grounds and by the time you get this, the sprinkler system and seeding will have been completed in anticipation of outdoor family events. I find it extremely appropriate that the first event we have is the 90th birthday celebration party of the MBPOA. Details about the party are still in the planning stages and will be announced. Suggestions are welcome for any yard games or events you would like to see.

Thank you and have a Great Summer,
Frank DeLustro

August 2017 Newsletter
President’s Message

Hello Members,

I hope everyone and their families are doing well. By the time you read this we will be in August and the summer will be half way through. I believe at this point we all find ourselves trying to cram everything we didn’t due in June and July into the rest of the summer.  I believe we should take it one day at a time, and enjoy each day, because when we get to September there will always be something we didn’t get to.
Life at the MBPOA is no different, although we refinished the floor, installed a new door, fenced the clubhouse property, replaced an air conditioner unit, installed a fence at the marina, as well as fixing multiple sink holes at the marina, there are still many things we didn’t get to. 
We are currently working on getting surveillance cameras installed at the marina. The cameras will be offered as an option. If the boat owner wishes to be able to view their boat 24 hours a day from their computer or mobile electronic device, they may elect to pay for the service. We plan on having the system running before the end of the season and offered at a steep discount for anyone wishing to try it out. More information will be available in the near future.   We will also be upgrading the cameras at the club house as well as the alarm system.
A rear deck for the club house is in the planning stages, as well as general landscaping and activities for our back yard. The goal is to create a family friendly environment in our back yard to attract younger members and their families.
The Activity committee is currently working on several community activities which you will hear about more in this newsletter or future correspondence. The big event for this month is the Crab Fest on August 27th. Lynne DeBona has been working tirelessly to organize the festival.  Although Lynne has this down to a science, I’m sure she could use all the help she can get. If anyone can help, please contact Lynne or myself by calling the clubhouse and leaving a message. Helping can be by selling raffles, serving food, light cooking, shucking clams or just setting up and breaking down at the end of the day. I look forward to seeing everyone on the 27th.

Thank you,
Frank DeLustro

Marina News and Rules

Please note on the weekend of the Blue Claw Crab Festival the Marina ramp will be closed from 12 AM August 27th until 9 PM.  There is no overnight parking from August 26th until 9 PM August 27th.  Also, there is no day parking on the South side of the ramp Saturday August 26th until Sunday August 27th. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Just as a reminder---please be sure your MBPOA sticker is placed in your car window if you are parking at the Marina.  
Boaters, Jet Ski operators, please it’s important to reduce your speed when entering the Marina. We are getting complaints from the boat owners that their boats are being damaged from the excessive wakes.  We have a no wake zone that must be adhered to.  Thanks to John Pastore & John Jr., Jean Pastore, Mike Wettig and Jim Searfoss for launching the NO WAKE ZONE sign at the entrance of the Marina.   
Your patience is appreciated while we do some repairs to the bulkhead.  We depend on volunteers to do many chores and repairs at the marina and clubhouse.  Some repairs were done to the west side of the marina bulkhead and estimates are in the works for resurfacing the bulkhead in sections.  This project will not begin until the Fall.  Thank you to Chris Zarcone, Frank DeLustro, Mike Bissonette and Jim Searfoss for their time spent this past weekend reinforcing two sections of the bulkhead. Our Junior members Brayden Wilkinson and Arik Getchell spent several hours filling in the holes with gravel on the east side parking lot.
We always need volunteers to keep the cost down for these projects.  Please call the MBPOA if you are interested in helping.
