IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Happy Birthday to..

The TV! In 1927 Philo T Farnsworth successfully transmitted and image through his image dissector using purely electronic means. He got the idea while looking at a freshly plowed potato farm in Idaho. The guy was a bona-fide genius.


Heard about the new plans for the Old Clifton’s by the Sea?

The new owners are planning an early October opening of Pod-Zu’s at Clifton’s By The Sea at the building, 10 Grand Ave. There is a Pod-Zu’s Crawfish Shed in Texas City. They offer boiled crawfish and shrimp or live crawfish by the sack for DIYer’s and all sorts of fixin’s. Big plus will be the full bar and live music on “Da Porch.” More as I hear it.


Great Club meeting tonight. Thanks to all who came out and to all who brought the yummy goodies! Movie Night is a go. Dave Chambers has volunteered as chair and I have opened the conversation with Swank.

The Children’s Fishing Tournament is on October 6th! Get signed up soon so we know how many prizes to get. Don’t know how? See page 14 in your Islander. Or drop me a line here.


The BBQ is on!! Mark your calendars for the October 6th! More to follow.

Frisbee Golf anyone? I promise we’re working on it.


Everyone who has a boat raise your hand. Look at all those hands. Well, you’d expect that in the Yachting Capitol of Texas wouldn’t you? This from Coastie John Wright: If you would like a free Coast Guard Safety Exam for your vessel all you have to do is call. It’s that easy. Don’t have John’s number? Drop me a line and I’ll get you hooked up.

We’re working on a game night too. See how much you missed? See you at the next meeting!


Jammin’ tomorrow night. Our very own Ben Reyna. His great tunes and a cold front should make for a perfect Saturday night.


5 days left until we reach the end of the first book of the neverendingstory. I promise book 2 will be shorter. Have a great weekend!


It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.

John did a check on our boat. Turns out my flares were out of date and my stern light didn't work. I got those fixed and he came back to redo the check - passed the second time around. Much better to do this at the dock than out on the water where you could get a ticket. Thanks John for the volunteer work you do to keep us all safe
