“R” hours and yours…. The times they are a changing!

Well, we have been talking about it for weeks. The back to school bug has finally hit us as at your homeport as members of our work staff leave during the week to further their education. So here’s what you need to know about what that means for all of us at your family fun marina.

Starting August 22nd The Store-Office will be open from 8 am – 6 pm weekdays, and 8 am to 7 pm Fri-Sat-Sun. The Pool and Putter-Port will be weekends only the rest of the season.

Of course our service dept is still open weekdays from 8am – 5pm, for those needing help getting back on the water.

Also, Starting August 24th Dairy Dock hours will be 11:30 am to 9 pm Sunday through Thursday (aka School-nights), and 11:30 am to 10 pm Fridays and Saturdays for those needing some delicious Ice Cream.

So as the temps cool, this week it may be a good time to get back on the water. Plus, with the kids in school it could mean some hours of relaxing for Mom and Dad..

After all, at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina things are always looking up!

Happy Birthday USA!…How boating gave birth to a nation.

Thankfully, everyone gets a nice start of the week break to spend time with family and friends on the water as we celebrate our country’s birth, so we thought we would remind all how boating played a key role in shaping this nation.

columbus-landing-new-world

In fact, boats and boating are part of the American fabric. It took some sturdy wood for Columbus to land in the new world and get credit for discovering our continent.

washington-delaware-l

Even our founding fathers got in the act using rowboats to move an army and catch the British off guard, helping give birth to our Democracy. Of course this is but one example of America’s illustrious nautical history.

battle_of_lake_erie_full_size

Why just a couple of years ago we were celebrating the Bicentennial of The Battle of Lake Erie where Commodore Perry outmaneuvered and out-gunned an opponent with superior numbers, forever reminding us that you “Don’t Give Up The Ship”, ever.

So enjoy the time off and celebrate our Nation’s Birth, doing it with a boat would only be the historically correct thing to do. Enjoy!

Special Notice: Due to safety factors such as proximity to fuel, fireworks of any kind are strictly prohibited at Romp’s. Thank you for your understanding.

Seas the day!….4th of July Weekend arrives along with some sunshine.

unclesam

The forecast for America’s Birthday not only includes sunshine and temps in the 80’s, but also a pool to relax in and some drinks served very cold. Now that’s a forecast you can take to the bank.

Please note, that For those needing parts or Service Department assistance our service staff will be off on Monday in addition to the weekend as they get to spend some much deserved time with family.

But fear not, the rest of our staff will be here serving you on the 4th and throughout the weekend as we celebrate America’s Birthday. So come out and relax and enjoy time with your family at your home-port this weekend!

 

IMG_20140626_202010_108

So enjoy the freedom to splash around with family whether on the lake or in the pool. Maybe even sink a hook or two in search of the perfect perch to cook for your Holiday Meal. Either way, it’s your weekend to relax and celebrate the birth of this great nation. So enjoy!
