For our dry storage customers, we encourage you to call for launches when you are on property, so we can get boats in the water as quickly and efficiently as possible. For our wet slip customers, we have dockhands dedicated just to you this summer. We will be monitoring VHF channel 71, so call if you need anything and look for blue shirts on the docks. The faces might not look familiar, but they are there to take care of you!<br />&nbsp;<br />You will be seeing lots of new faces at the marina this season &ndash; mine included! And since I would like to meet as many of you as possible face to face, I will be set up in the Clubhouse from 9 a.m. &ndash; 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday this weekend with coffee and doughnuts. So if you&rsquo;re here early, please stop by to introduce yourself, I would love to say hello.<br />&nbsp;<br />I&rsquo;m looking forward to a great first Summer here, which kicks off&hellip;pretty much now! Whatever your plans this official start of the season - have fun and stay safe.<br /><br /><br />Logan Moore, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Kings Point<br />704-892-3223</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <hr /> <h1>UPCOMING EVENTS</h1> <hr /> </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="right"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/a8f55512-46a2-4e77-a6a7-9588b12e516e.png" alt="" width="176" /></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="352" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div> <h2>Meet Our New GM</h2> <h3>Saturday, May 28 &ndash; Sunday, May 29, 9 a.m. - 10 a.m.&nbsp;</h3> <br />Come meet our new GM, Logan Moore!

Woohoo!&nbsp;I hadn’t been at the helm of my boat in over a year, and it felt great. But, I also was a little rusty, so I practiced &ndash; making circles, stopping the boat, going in and out of the slip, etc. I recommend you all do the same when getting back on the water for the first time this season. I know I am a lot more comfortable now!<br />&nbsp;<br />Don’t forget to bring Mom to the marina this weekend and the Morningstar crew will have flowers for her as a token of our appreciation! The staff and I are also preparing for a lot of other fun events for the season. Please read below.<br /><br />It’s so nice to&nbsp;see you all returning to the marina after winter.

The season is beginning. I love this time of year. It&rsquo;s so nice to see everyone returning for the summer. As the season gears up, we will be expanding our hours for the month of April.<br />&nbsp;<br />The Skipper’s crew and I have been busy this winter preparing for the coming season. We have completed a lot of projects, the largest of which was cleaning the facility of the black tire soot you told us about in our customer survey. We rented a concrete cleaning machine and scrubbed all concrete surfaces. We also have pressure washed the remaining decking on site. All of this work was done in preparation for replacing the forklift tires on both of the lifts with gray tires. The first set of tires have been installed. The second set will be installed within the next week. We will then do another cleaning of the facility before season.</div> <div><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=73d718bbad&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/8351828b-144d-4ff7-8183-226cfab4a052.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="360" align="none" /></a></div> <div>&nbsp;<br />Additionally, we have been working on plans for a new pavilion area for you to enjoy. Currently we are in the permitting process for this project. The pavilion will replace the existing smaller pavilion with a larger space for you to enjoy the shade on those hot Carolina summer days.<br />&nbsp;<br />Also, we invested in concrete repairs needed in the closed building and on the tarmac. Two large areas of damaged concrete were removed and replaced. This ensures that the forklifts can move safely around the yard.<br />&nbsp;<br />Lastly, we have been planning another fun summer for you with a full events calendar, kicking off Saturday, April 16, for our first annual In-Water Boat Show. North Point Water Sports will be displaying an array of their wakeboard and pontoon boats. Lunch also will be served in addition to the boat show. Check out some more of the first exciting events the staff and I have planned for this summer below. There will be more to come!<br />&nbsp;<br />Hope to see you this weekend!<br />&nbsp;<br />Cheers,<br />&nbsp;<br />Deb Agostinelli, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Skipper&rsquo;s Landing<br />704-528-3328 &nbsp;</div> &nbsp; <h3><strong>MARINA HOURS</strong></h3> <br />Effective April 1, our hours will expand to:<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.</strong><br /><strong>Friday-Sunday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.</strong><br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>UPCOMING EVENTS</strong><br /><br />&nbsp; <div><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=542a649917&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/50b7450d-355d-4790-bff6-94267abbc0b6.png" alt="" width="480" height="120" align="none" /></a></div> &nbsp;<br /><strong>In-Water Boat Show<br />Saturday, April 16, at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.</strong><br />&nbsp;<br />Kick-off the season with Skipper’s first annual In-water Boat Show.

Seems that the groundhog was right this year, and winter is all but over (fingers crossed). Time to start thinking about getting back out to the marina. Your boats have missed you!<br />&nbsp;<br />We have lots to tell you about this month, and most of it has to do with water - water on the docks, water to wash boats, new facilities in the ladies room - we are all about the water! Keep reading for the latest updates, as well as information on upcoming area boater safety courses and our hours of operation going forward.&nbsp;The 2016 boating season is shaping up to be absolutely fantastic. Can&rsquo;t wait to see you all soon.<br />&nbsp;<br />Chris Higgs, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Kings Point<br />704-892-3223 &nbsp; <h3><strong>NEW BOAT WASH AREA</strong></h3> &nbsp; <div><strong><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=c40607dd7f&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/8e048de6-f4a8-4342-9f42-6c8e99fc8b1b.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="360" align="none" /></a></strong></div> <span style="color: #000033;">&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="color: #000033;">It&rsquo;s official &ndash; we are now EPA compliant, and able to wash boats again. Over the winter, we completely overhauled the wash rack area by our dry storage buildings. We now have a small, contained paved area that can accommodate up to 3 boats at a time for washing. The racks in the gravel area will be for service only. So when we ask what you&rsquo;ll be doing with your boat when you request that it go on a cradle, we&rsquo;re not being nosy &ndash; your answer is very important, as it will dictate where we put your boat! Thank you all for your patience while we made these required changes to our run-off system. Happy boat washing!</span><br /><span style="color: #000033;">&nbsp;</span><br /><strong>BOAT WASH AND DETAIL SERVICES</strong><br /><br /><span style="color: #000033;">If you&rsquo;re not the DIY type, let&nbsp;</span><em>us&nbsp;</em><span style="color: #000033;">do the heavy lifting and wash the boat for you.

The plan is to have everything up and running by&nbsp;</span><strong>March 20</strong><span style="color: #000033;">&nbsp;&nbsp;- the official first day of Spring!</span><br /><span style="color: #000033;">&nbsp;</span><br /><strong>THE LADIES ROOM REMODEL IS COMPLETE!</strong><br />&nbsp; <div><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=d3d082f378&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/f7e7ec6a-a87d-40d0-ac41-603efeb0d099.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="333" align="none" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=9de85d6caa&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/85d914e2-e904-47c6-b65d-3ff96c4afd56.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="333" align="none" /></a></div> <br /><span style="color: #000033;">We are happy to report that the bathhouse is now fully operational!

There were several &ldquo;white knuckle&rdquo; evenings at high tide at RHYC, but our beautiful Bellingham floating docks performed ideally, and we had six feet to spare on the pilings at the highest tide during the river&rsquo;s crest. However, the walkway to the river was underwater at high tide and we continue to clean out debris from the harbor on a daily basis. After viewing the river from several vantage points this week, just a cautionary note to be very slow and careful when heading out on the water as there is still substantial debris floating on the surface as well as unknown submerged debris that could cause significant damage to your boat. This is a good time to take advantage of our $50 discount on boat service or just appreciate a nice afternoon at the club watching the games and enjoying this weekend&rsquo;s sunshine at the pool!&nbsp;Looking forward to seeing you here!<br /><br />Christine Rosow, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Reserve Harbor<br />Marina: 843-235-8262 Club: 843-235-6949&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>DON’T FORGET</strong><br />The RHYC Club will close at&nbsp;<strong>3 p.m.</strong>&nbsp;this&nbsp;<strong>Saturday, October 16</strong>.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br /><strong>OCTOBER MARINA SPECIAL: $50 OFF ANY $300 SERVICE</strong></p> <div><a href="http://morningstarmarinas.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=b4c4903ddd&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/9acfa709-a561-461a-8ad1-e497d3e8ead8.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="360" align="none" /></a></div> &nbsp;<br />Receive&nbsp;<strong>$50 off any $300 Service</strong>&nbsp;booked by&nbsp;<strong>November 15</strong>!

Be considerate and remove all dinghy&rsquo;s, jet skis, and inflatables that are not in your dock space; also, please make sure your boat is not cross-tied. If we have boats coming into docks where items have been left, it may become necessary for SHM to remove these.<br /><br /><br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>WEATHER OR TIDES</strong><br />&nbsp;<br />The forecast is calling for some very pleasant Fall weather this weekend! Highs will be 72-75 with the lows averaging around 59. This should be a fabulous weather weekend - just in time for Octoberfest!<br /> News http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Weekly-Marina-News-Events-949 Weekly Marina News & Events http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Weekly-Marina-News-Events-948 <div>Dear Skipper&rsquo;s Landing Boaters,<br />&nbsp;<br />September has been a great month&hellip;first our Labor Day party, then the A Dock party and finally, the Pirate Party. We know how to have fun here at Skippers! I’ve posted some photos for you below.<br />&nbsp;<br />Believe it or not, it&rsquo;s time to start thinking about winterizing your boat. If you are done with your boat for the season, take advantage of our winterization specials. We&rsquo;re offering&nbsp;<strong>15% off&nbsp;</strong>winterization services if completed in September and&nbsp;<strong>10% off</strong>&nbsp;winterization if completed&nbsp;October 1-15.<br />&nbsp;<br />If you are still using the boat, please call Heather to schedule your winterization service for this year. We will be scheduling a set number of winterizations per month. So, if you would like your winterization performed in November, the most popular month, please call to ensure we will be able to fit you in that month. Once November is full, we will be booking in to October, and then September.<br />&nbsp;<br />Finally, the winners of our photo contest have been selected! Check out the winning photos below.
