To honor our members and to get your party started this weekend, the Island Bar & Grill staff will be selling burgers and sandwiches cooked to order on the deck of "Big Blue" - otherwise known as the Administration Building.
All cold beer and lemonade is FREE! We'll be setting up shop and ready to begin serving on the south deck from 11 AM to 8 PM on Friday and Saturday. If participation is good, we'll continue on Sunday and Monday! So come by and grab a beer, a burger and meet our new Island Bar & Grill Manager, Kevin Callow!
Our friends at Tanglewood are offering 50% off rooms to Highport members for Memorial Day Weekend! Now you can party with us at Big Blue and return to the resort for a relaxing night's sleep before hitting the lake again!
While water is disconnected on the boathouses, members may use the water hoses at the Fuel Dock to fill their boat's water tank. We also expect to have water on the Courtesy Dock available by the weekend for members to rinse their boats as well as fill their tanks.
As many of you have heard, our beloved courtesy patrolman, James McMurray suffered a heart attack this week. We are very happy to let everyone know that James is well on the way to a full recovery. He is expected to spend the holiday weekend resting at home and has told us he is eager to return to work and to his Highport family!
The Highport Marina Service Center is open and running. We are committed to providing our customers ongoing service and repairs as needed and have our full staff of Technicians working as normal. The only thing non-operational is our haul out service for bottom paint.
If your boat was being worked on when the water rose, rest assured we will complete the work on your boat as soon as the water goes down.
Should you need anything completed on your boats during the high water conditions, please call either Emily Haning, Service Advisor at 903-462-0719 or Paul Russell, Service Manager at 903-462-0713.
Our Parts department and Service Center personnel have been moved up to the big blue office building.
If your boat is on a lift and you are planning to launch your vessel this weekend, please call us at 903-786-7000 to have our Marina Services team come around with the generator to raise your lift once you are done with your boat.
The Army Corps of Engineers has reminded Highport Management that, per the National Fire Protection Association's codes and standards for marinas and boatyards, NO PORTABLE GENERATORS CAN BE ALLOWED ON THE BOATHOUSES. Any portable generators or fuel receptacles found on a boathouse is subject to impoundment by the marina. For information regarding the use of industrial type generators located OFF the boathouse to provide temporary power to the boathouse, please contact Jim Guth in Marina Services.
Our Water Taxi will continue to be available around the clock to our members and their guests by calling 903-814-4300 or 903-786-8365. Remember to have a life jacket on any child 12 and under; our taxis hold a maximum of 11 people including the driver, so please allow for this. Also please remember that fuel, fuel cans and other hazardous materials cannot be transported on our water taxis.
