Highport Helm – May 27, 2016

Highport Members,

It’s Friday, and welcome to the weekend! With all the recent rainfall, we wanted to let you know that lake levels at lake Texoma have risen. The Army Corps of Engineers is forecasting a lake level of 626.3 by Tuesday, June 7th. While they cannot open the flood gates due to downstream flooding, we have plenty of experience with rising lake levels and are making the necessary preparations for the marina.


Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend at Highport!

We have a jam-packed entertainment line-up for Memorial Day Weekend, so all you have to do is relax and have fun.

We’re partnering with Hot 107.3 for live DJ entertainment every Saturday night through the summer!

This Week’s Improvements

We are completing the implementation of our new phone system this week. While the automated system is up and running, the direct lines are in the process of being ported over to our new provider.

In addition, we are making the final repairs to our launch ramp just in time for the weekend.
