Website Improvements

Hello, everyone! We are currently working on several improvements to the website. One of which is creating a shortcut for PayPal on the website. This shortcut will allow members of the BSBIA to pay their dues electronically this year.

We are also working on a new feature for the website, a historical section! It has been decided that due to the fantastic history of our bay, a history page will be put into the works! As such, a formal request is being put forward that if you have any old photographs, memories, or even maps, please send them to the web admin at bmaslyn1@gmail.com. I will be working on getting this page started around the beginning of June.

Please look for these updates soon; the PayPal will be available before the annual BSBIA meeting in June. Thank you! And as always, if you have any photographs you would like to see posted on the website, please forward them on to the web admin at bmaslyn1@gmail.com. That page will also be updated around the beginning of June.

Thank you!

Channel Status and Funds

Dear Fellow Blind Sodus Bay Improvement Association Members and Constituents;

Our primary objective of the BSBIA is to keep a clear and open channel to Lake Ontario for safe ingress and egress. It has been decided to open the channel each year during the 2nd full week in June, hoping to have the channel ready for the 2nd weekend of the month.

This year we are scheduling the channel to be open for the season the weekend of June 9th, 2017. The channel should be usable by the week of June 11th as long as no major storms are forecasted.

This was decided so as to avoid the late May, early June winds and storms that partially or completely close it back up, causing us to reopen the channel a second and possibly third time during the summer months.

We are going to be using Dates Excavation again this year as he is the most experienced and reasonably priced.

That being said, we look forward to seeing or hearing from you at the June 3rd meeting. Please forward your $150 dues, or more if you can afford to, to support our organization ASAP or we will not have sufficient funds to open the channel as scheduled.
