Can I get an address to pay dues for next year since the park is closed and we havent been able to get down for a few weeks ?? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Next year's dues can be paid in the Spring.

I thought if I waited it would be 75 again, but if I paid by the end of this year it would be 35 ??

The message was confusing. You are ok. Wait till the park opens $25 at the scheduled key exchanges.

Oh, Ok !!! Thank you !! Have a safe winter !!

You won't have to pay $75 for 2018 unless you were NOT a boat club member in 2017. Steve Wisner or Carll Bowman can confirm.

Mr. Willard Leon "Billy" Brown Jr., of Martinsburg, WV, died Monday, August 28, 2017 at Berkeley Medical Center. He was the husband of Maryann (Ferguson) Brown for 41 years.

Born August 31, 1952 in Jefferson, he was the son of Doris (Stull) Brown and the late Willard "Bill" Brown Sr.

Billy graduated from Brunswick High School Class of 1970. During the Vietnam War, he served in 558th Signal Corps in the US Army Reserves.

Billy was an avid hunter and group member of Maryland Whitetail .Com. He was a die-hard Redskins and Nationals fan. Vacationing in North Myrtle Beach, SC was a yearly family tradition that Billy always loved. In his early years his passion was playing softball. In his later years, he enjoyed long boat rides, working in his award-winning rose garden and most importantly Billy loved to spend time with his family, especially his granddaughters.

In addition to his wife and mother, he is survived by his son, Brett Brown and wife Paula of Sharpsburg, MD, daughter, Billie Jo McTighe and husband Patrick of Martinsburg, WV, granddaughters, Hannah Brown and Brenna McTighe, sister, Catherine Smith and husband Wayne of Jefferson, MD, numerous nieces and nephews.

HIGH WATER OBSERVATIONS BY BOAT CLUB MEMBERS PAUL AND VICKIE DOWLING.
What is most useful are the predicted and current levels at Paw and Hancock. We get Hancock’s water within hours. I have learned that a level of 19’ at Hancock comes right to the top of the bank at my lot, which happens to be THE LOWEST LOT IN RIVER BEND! Their levels DO NOT translate foot to foot. In other words, if the river rises 3’ at Hancock, it doesn’t mean it will rise 3’ at River Bend, but it will rise, more like 1-1/2’. Monday’s (4/16/2007) level of 21.36 feet came to the front of my trailer, right at the base of the jack, and just got to the bottom of the rims on my wheels. That is on the lowest trailer in the park! I was prepared to move it, but by watching the Hancock gauge, I knew I was OK. Most members should be OK if the Hancock level stays below about 23-24’. Now Winter ice jams are another story!

 What is most useful are the predicted and current levels at Paw and Hancock. We get Hancock’s water within hours. I have learned that a level of 19’ at Hancock comes right to the top of the bank at my lot, which happens to be THE LOWEST LOT IN RIVER BEND! Their levels DO NOT translate foot to foot. In other words, if the river rises 3’ at Hancock, it doesn’t mean it will rise 3’ at River Bend, but it will rise, more like 1-1/2’. Monday’s (4/16/2007) level of 21.36 feet came to the front of my trailer, right at the base of the jack, and just got to the bottom of the rims on my wheels. That is on the lowest trailer in the park! I was prepared to move it, but by watching the Hancock gauge, I knew I was OK. Most members should be OK if the Hancock level stays below about 23-24’. Now Winter ice jams are another story!
