There is a fire pump at Strato's. I guess it was a little late getting there.

It is with great sadness that I am informing you of the passing of Jock Fleming, long time McGregor Bay cottager and father to Zoe, Anne and Rob. He died late last night.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones during this difficult time.
I have no further details: I will post more information as it becomes available.

If anyone "borrowed" the fire pump and gas can located near Strato/Bragg camp, please return them ASAP as someone may need it to protect their property.

Fire pumps should be at all of the pump stations. They were tested and made ready last week. If you have your own pump, please test it ASAP.
So far so good - no reported fires.
Remember: 310-FIRE (3473)

To those already in the Bay:
Roofing repairs are being done on the Parish Hall this week. Ferguson Maintenance has asked for people not to be in the Hall while repairs are going on for safety reasons.

The "SLOW" traffic signs installed in McGregor Bay last fall will be discussed at this meeting.
It is important that all voices are heard. See you there.

All of us are probably thinking about our return to McGregor Bay. Some have spent time there during late fall, winter and early spring. Most of us arrive after it warms up (mid-May) and leave before it gets too cold (mid-October). There are a thousand things to do when you arrive and when you close. I would like to remind those who have their own fire pump systems that they must check them as soon as possible after arrival and make any repairs.…Continue

I am happy to say that 15+ private fire pump systems were purchased last summer. Those systems consisted of a Honda WH20 pump, 100+ feet of hoses and a nozzle. THANK YOU Murray Still and John Bush for coordinating the purchase of these fire pump systems.
I hope this trend continues in the future. We purchased our system three years ago and we are better prepared to fight a fire. As I have said before, we are located…Continue

I, like most, did not and do not like the idea of posting "slow" signs in THE BAY. However, I also know that just asking people to slow down at the three choke points has not worked. Boats have gotten bigger and faster over the years and boaters have become increasingly careless.
I have been coming to THE BAY sine 1959. I do not…Continue

You people have too much time on your hands and so little to do that you have to make up things to do to deface and degrade "the most beautiful inland waterway in North America". So you have been discussing these signs inside your bell jar for 2, not for 8 years, nor "for as far back as I can remember"? What balderdash! Danger? We gotta put up signs! That's it! We gotta put up signs to save ourselves. Ye are some helpless, lazy, puerile people.
