The WBLA is seeking the donation of a flat bottom boat, ideally 19' or more in length. The boat is to be used on the biannual clean-up days to better facilitate the collection and removal of refuse on our beautiful Watts Bar Lake.
We are looking to hold some sort of photo contest for the the Website. The WBLA Website needs some freshening up, and we need your Watts Bar Lake photos. More details coming soon.
The WBLA Annual Picnic and Member Meeting held on August 29th at the Watts Bar Dam Pavilion was a great success. As usual, the catered dinner was free (sponsored by the TVA) to all paid memberships and immediate family and one prospective member. Food was provided by Evelyn's Catering and we had two guest speakers from the Rhea County Sheriff's department. Law enforcement and safety concerns on the Lake were discussed followed by a question and answer period. Thanks so to the Rhea County Sheriffs department for attending and providing information and discussion. The Association's annual business meeting followed the dinner. Elections for expiring director positions were held as well as for two open positions (which were filled). Duties of a director are to attend board meetings the second Tuesday of each month (no meetings in July and December) and make decisions on matters of WBLA. If you are interested in becoming a director, contact Gray Cowart (423-365-2804), Harry Smiley (803-640-7870) or Gil Litteken (423-365-0199) .
The next WBLA Annual Picnic is scheduled for August 2016, with the date to be announced.
