This month we had our intrepid youth reporter,
ISSUE # 8 Peace + hope
Kayle Stevenson, contact us about a friend. She asked if we could find somewhere to talk about Michael Mugrage and his fight with rhabdomyosarcoma. Could there be a more appropriate place than our magazine and a more appropriate time than the holiday season? “Hampton Lake native, Michael Mugrage, was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma after being rushed to the hospital with a collapsed lung. This rare form of cancer is a type of sarcoma that usually develops in the skeletal muscles. It has encircled Michael’s left lung and was spotted in his bone marrow. Tumors were also found on his skull. Our brave 15-year-old friend has displayed a huge amount of courage during a tremendously difficult time, having endured three surgeries as well as chemotherapy treatment to date. There is currently a Go Fund Me page up online for Michael as well as a link on Nextdoor. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Prayers would help, too. We love you Michael,” shared Kayle. From the American Cancer Society: “Sarcomas are cancers that develop from connective tissues in the body, such as muscles, fat, bones, the linings of joints, or blood vessels. There are many types of sarcomas. Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a cancer made up of cells that normally develop into skeletal muscles.
Michael with little brother Matthew
About 7 weeks into the development of an embryo, cells called rhabdomyoblasts (which will eventually form skeletal muscles) begin to form. These are the cells that can develop into RMS. Because this is a cancer of embryonal cells, it is much more common in children, although it does sometimes occur in adults. We might think of our skeletal muscles as being mainly in our arms and legs, but these skeletal muscle cancers can start nearly anywhere in the body, even in some parts of the body that don’t normally have skeletal muscle. About 3% of all childhood cancers are rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS). About 350 new cases of RMS occur each year in the United States. The number of new cases has not changed much over the past few decades. Most rhabdomyosarcomas are diagnosed in children and teens, with more than half of them in children younger than 10 years old. RMS is slightly more common in boys than in girls. No particular race or ethnic group seems to have an unusually high rate of RMS.” We wish for peace and blessings upon the Mugrage household. Your friends and neighbors love you and there is no better reflection of the holiday season. Joe’s grandma, who is very Irish (first generation) always says this: “may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

Did someone say holiday travel? First built by George Vanderbilt, the Biltmore in Asheville is Randy Fix’s favorite destination. Stephen Kreider likes to visit Gatlinburg, TN, which is also where our editor Justin just went on a “mancation” with his family, and it is tarantula tattoo approved.
Get the local lowdown
A great plate for the family is gold, especially one tolerant of a few Matchbox cars falling on the ground or an occasional, ungrateful teenager! We’ve asked you what are your favorite places to eat with the crew. Randy Fix tells us that he likes Sigler's and Amanda Bonilla dines at Local Pie. Mellow Mushroom & Fancy Sushi are recommended by Stephen Kreider.
Our designer Vivian shared that her favorite tradition is making holiday crafts with her family. "We decided a few years ago to only give each other things we had made. Luckily, we're all creative and came up with some great things from boxes of homemade cookies to hand-knit scarves to photo albums full of those pics usually stored away in the computer. For us, Christmas season is Creative season!"
We know that you spa-goers are holding out on us! So we're gonna give you another chance: if you email us at info@ hamptonlake.community with another suggestion, you’ll be entered to win a special drawing for a one hour massage with Caroline at Lowcountry Therapeutic Massage! Ande is curious if the promise of a professional massage is enough to draw out any other responses!
We only got one submission, and that was Randy Fix recommending Lux.
Stephen Kreider tells us that his favorite holiday tradition is cooking for the entire family on Thanksgiving. Amanda Bonilla says that Truth in the Tinsel is one of her favorite traditions while Randy Fix loves the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day.
“HANDS DOWN, without a doubt, Celia G Photographie. We cannot say enough about the work that Celia does - families, weddings, brand & corporate - she thrives and excels at it all! We fell in love with her work through Instagram, ironically, as she's done a lot of collaborations with brands & companies we support, and have been in awe on her business growth over the last year. Celia has a photographic journalism characteristic to her work that allows the pictures to never feel forced, but as natural & engaging as possible! Last week we finally had the opportunity to get a 'couples session' in and are elated at the results!” -Jamie Williams
When it comes to capturing beautiful memories of your loved ones, you’ve found the best in the area. Randy Fix suggests Kellie McCann, and Amanda Bonilla likes Meredith Barouth. Shirley Bacher recommends Al Heacox.
Irwin and Pam Kronenberg recommend Lettrs at their Bluffton Promenade location or Hilton Head Main St while Amanda and Randy tell us that Markels is a great place to shop for something special.
Artist in Residence
Shirley Good Bacher Shirley Good Bacher is our Artist in Residence this month. We get to meet a lot of nice people for this piece and Shirley was no exception. Not only is her work great, but she’s also the first Lake artist that uses pastels as her preferred medium!
hirley first came to the Lowcountry in 1975 to teach tennis at the Shipyard Racquet Club in Shipyard Plantation on Hilton Head. “It was a very different place back then… very quiet but also very beautiful!” With the Lowcountry’s natural beauty and as someone who had drawn and painted her entire life, Shirley didn’t have to look far to find inspiration, saying living here “felt like I was working inside a work of art.” Later she taught tennis at Palmetto time to paint it all!” Regarding the various styles, Dunes and owned her own tennis club called New Hope Country Tennis, Shirley told us she loves to paint in in New Hope, Pennsylvania. After plein air (to paint on location) as well selling the club, she welcomed the as from photographs she have taken at opportunity to paint once again, but times when plein air is not possible. felt out of practice and wasn't ready to Her works are impressionistic, show her work in galleries. Instead, she representational, and she’s dabbled in started painting floor cloths (to walk the abstract (one abstract piece was on), murals,and furniture. Shirley Justin’s favorite). “I want the viewer decided to get serious about painting to know what I saw but hope that he when she realized that people refused or she will not need or want every leaf to walk on the floor cloths or sit in or blade of grass executed to the point that their imagination can't fill the chairs and treated them as “There is beauty in the details. To me, that is objects of art. and excitement the fun part of viewing art!” “I can remember having all around us The work almost always great difficulty deciding what and not nearly includes people or something to paint back when I was taking enough time to that alludes that someone was art classes in high school. For paint it all!” there. Be it an empty chair, some strange reason, I was almost blind to the inspiration that a boat, a car or truck, a church, or a surrounded me.” That was in Texas fence, there’s something that shows along the Gulf coast, where the people were there. “The experiences scenery was not so different from our that we have, even in our daily Lowcountry vistas. Now, however, routines, make lasting impressions even though the surroundings are that I believe help us appreciate art similar, there is no end to the list of that depicts similar memories.” Our Artist in Residence currently places and things Shirley wants to paint. “There is beauty and excitement has work in the SoBA Gallery in Old all around us and not nearly enough Town where she is a member. Shirley
is also a member of The Southeastern Pastel Society and the Plein Air Society of the Lowcountry. Her work has received awards in exhibits in Texas, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and South Carolina! She appreciates the awards and recognition for her art but says it’s nicer that her work hangs on the walls of friends’ homes as well as those she has never met. When she’s not making masterpieces, Shirley spends time with her husband and best friend of 60 years, Robert, who’s a published author! “Life has been unbelievably good to me with a loving family, good health, and enough talent and work ethic to accomplish goals once not even dreamed.” Through her work in pastels and oils, one can tell Shirley captures the spirit of the human experience hrough landscapes and places that she paints. Her art lets your eyes and imagination meet in the middle without needing to be there in person to experience the surroundings. Check out more of Shirley's work online:

he Calverts are “apple pie” famous - that’s how we’d describe it. “American as Apple Pie,” well, the Calverts are staples in the community, having contributed to the history of the community, many social events, and the Tiger Bass Race. They’re as Hampton Lake as Tiger Bass! Speaking of, during his tenure, Mike has helped the group raise well over $100,000 for local charities and schools. From Fairfield, OH and Salt Lake City, UT respectively, Mike and Elsie met while working in Los Angeles in 1966! They
moved from West Chester, OH to Bluffton in October 2011, at which time they leased a home in Hampton Hall while construction took place in Hampton Lake. Mike retired from Frederick Steel, located in Cincinnati, in 2006 after over thirty years of commercial steel sales. Elsie, on the other hand, retired after thirty years with the Ford Motor Company, located in Sharonville, OH. The couple calls their experience finding Hampton Lake a “case of mistaken identity.” In 2009, while
visiting some friends from Ohio who recently moved to Dataw Island, they were introduced to a realtor along a walk on Hunting Island. The Calverts saw a real estate magazine and a photo of a person they believed to have been the real estate agent they met and set an appointment the next morning. It did not take long for the couple to discover its error, but had they not made that mistake, they may not have discovered Hampton Lake! “After checking out several properties, we were told that none of the lake front lots
Names: Mike & Elsie neighborhood: LaKEwood court we circled were available. We drove back to Ohio thinking our search for a retirement location would continue. Three weeks later, the realtor called to say one of the lots we had circled on the Hampton Lake map was now for sale. We immediately made an offer and the rest is history. From the first time we visited Hampton

Co-Author of Hampton Lake: It's All About the Water
Lake, I was struck by how unique this community was as opposed to the other communities in the Lowcountry whose main amenity was golf,” shared Mike. Awards may have helped create a bit of interest, but the relaxed lifestyle, amenities, and just a 10hour drive to Cincinnati were the final factors that made the couple’s choice easy. Once they moved to Hampton Lake, Mike was fascinated by the process of turning a pine forest into an award-winning lakefront community. No one had documented this transformation, and Mike felt it was “critical to capture the history while the majority of the parties involved in its development were still available. Perhaps the property owners would be interested in knowing how our community evolved,” and Mike adds “after all, there are few people in America who can say, I live in a community that won ‘The Best Community in America Award.’”
Hampton Lake: It’s all About the Water resulted. Mike & Carol Morse and Fred Chitty were quick to get involved in 2013, with each of us four having a different area of interest. Apart from their work as amateur historians, and Mike’s interest in playing golf (when his shoulder and back cooperate), they love to cruise around the Lowcountry in their T-bird. “The trouble with retirement,” they say, “is you never have a day off.” It should come as no surprise that Mike and Elsie believe that it’s important to get involved. “I believe it’s most important for the well being of Hampton Lake that as many of the homeowners as possible take active roles in the various committees within our community. The more aware everyone is of how things are managed, the better off Hampton Lake will be when turnover occurs.” This is wise counsel, and this comes from a man and woman with over 30 years of corporate

Slide scissors inside the "bow" and cut the loops free.
Fluff the yarn! Hold the "tails" you tied on, and use a comb.
Try other colors, too!
Tip: To keep from tangling in storage, wrap around a paper towel tube.
Make more snowballs. You'll need 10 to make a 5-foot garland.
Cut a 5-foot-long piece of yarn to hold the snowballs.
Tie the "tails" onto the long string, then cut off the extra bits.
Tie the rest on, spaced a few inches apart. Time to decorate!

Student Scholar by kayle S.
Ambitious, diligent, and studious only begin to describe Taylor. For these reasons as well as numerous others, she is the epitome of a student scholar. A current freshman at John Paul II, Taylor strives for academic excellence in the various advanced and honors courses that she takes each year, biology honors, geometry honors, and Spanish 3 honors as examples. Her favorite subjects are math and science as she enjoys learning new concepts, accepting the learning process as a fun challenge. Besides excelling academically, Taylor is a gifted athlete and is highly involved within the community. She not only plays for John Paul II’s varsity volleyball team as the only freshman, but also the varsity basketball team! She is one out of two freshman on that team and is a part of JPII’s track and field team. Taylor was the leading scorer for the basketball team last year, racking up a whopping 176 points, despite being out a month due to a concussion. She has been a member of the National Junior Honors Society since being inducted in the sixthgrade. Taylor is part of John Paul II’s student leadership council and FCA, and is a high school youth leader at St. Gregory. Some additional hobbies of Taylor’s include dancing, drawing, exercising, going to church, watching movies, and spending time with her friends from the Fishtales Squad. 22/11/2017 4:31:45 AM Regarding Fishtales, Taylor

shared, “joining the Fishtales Squad has given me more confidence through the support I have received from them, and has opened me up to new, fun experiences.” I am thrilled that Taylor is a part of this squad because, on a personal note, we have become the best of friends since then. Throughout her years at JPII, Taylor has received various award, such as the Coach’s Award and MVP for basketball, the Reverend Monsignor Cellini Award for her spiritual life with God as well as the Service Award. She was nominated as a member of the 2017 homecoming court by her freshman class as well. Despite her many accomplishments, Taylor remains humble, something I admire greatly about her. This humility was taught to her by her family as well as God, all of whom are tremendously important
figures in her life. “They’ve been my encouragement and support basically my entire life, especially when times were tough for me when I felt as if I didn’t fit in,” shared Taylor. With interests in science and a passion for basketball, Taylor strives to become a biologist or chemist as well as play college basketball - perhaps even looking to go pro. She is also considering becoming a basketball coach due to the endless love she has for the game and the way such goals can keep one grounded.

and the Rotary Club of Bluffton 30 years of “service above self” while having fun along the way - in a nutshell, that’s what the Rotary Club of Bluffton is all about. The Bluffton Rotary Club was chartered in April of 1988 and has been giving back locally, nationally and even helping with global needs for 30 years this coming spring. That is a long history of following Rotary International’s “service above self ” motto. It is estimated that the club has given over a million dollars to countless community organizations, including Bluffton Self Help, American Red Cross, Bluffton-Jasper Volunteers In Medicine, student scholarships, Happy Feet, the Waddell Mariculture Center and many more. Some of the events you might recognize, which the rotary club in fact coordinates, include MayFest in Old Town Bluffton (also known as The Village Festival), providing the volunteers and some of the leadership for the Bluffton Historic Arts & Seafood Festival, and their annual oyster roast, a well known Bluffton social tradition. Rotarians know how to “put on a party” with an organized “army of volunteers!” The club’s most visible project was completed 17 years ago, when local Rotarians saw a need for a community center in our growing town. It included a small field area called the Field of Dreams. The 5400 square foot Lowcountry style building was completed through fundraising efforts, local donations of goods and services and even a good old fashioned barn raising day. It has been a great facility for civic meetings, weddings, sport banquets and many private special occasions for residents.

And now the rotary club is finishing what they started with the project! Called the Field of Dreams, the park area (currently a sparse field and small playground) will be completely transformed into a visually appealing viable new recreational resource. The project is in partnership with the Town of Bluffton and The Rotary Club of Bluffton. When completed, it will be a new “destination park” for the Bluffton community adding a new dimension to what the town has to offer its residents. Planning has included a “wish list” of elements people would like to see in the park. With the help of landscape architects from Witmer Jones Keefer, a conceptual plan has been created. Rotarian and former club president, Dot Jeger, is spearheading the leadership for the Field of Dreams. “We are excited to undertake this project and hope the entire community will come together to help!” says Jeger.

• Improvements to the existing playground • Picnic pavilion with restrooms • Small formal event space for weddings, receptions, small parties • Formal park entrances with signage; providing formal entry for ticketed events • A natural canopy of trees to provide cooling shade • Swings, fencing around at least part of the park near the playground • An Art Wall • Lighting and security cameras • Grand multipurpose lawn. Preserving this open space is a key element – a common gathering place or a place to play informal soccer and football games… • And connecting it all, a continuous 8’ wide walk/run pathway. The pathway would be wide enough for tents and booths, making the park an ideal place for festivals.

Stampeding Bull Market
s you know, we’ve been enjoying a long period of steadily rising stock prices. Of course, this bull market won’t last forever – and when it does start losing steam, you, as an investor, need to be prepared. Before we look at how you can ready yourself for a new phase in the investment environment, let’s consider some facts about the current situation: Length – This bull market, which began in 2009, is the second-oldest in the past 100 years – and it’s about twice as long as the average bull market. Strength – Since the start of this long rally, the stock market has produced an average annualized gain of 15.5% per year. While these figures are impressive, they aren’t necessarily predictive – so how much longer can this bull market continue to “stampede”? No one can say for sure, but there’s no mandatory expiration date for bull markets – in fact, they don’t generally die of old age, but typically expire either because of a recession or the bursting of a bubble, such as the “dot.com” bubble of 2000 or the housing bubble of 2007. And right now, most market experts don’t see either event on the near-term horizon. Still, this doesn’t mean you should necessarily expect an uninterrupted streak of big gains. Some signs point to greater market volatility and lower returns. To navigate this changing landscape, think about these suggestions:
May Slow Down… SO BE PREPARED international stocks are slumping – and vice versa. So, when volatility hits the U.S. markets – as it surely will, at some time – you can help reduce the impact on your portfolio if you also own some international equities. Keep in mind, though, that international investments bring some specific risks, such as currency fluctuations and foreign political and economic events. Develop a strategy. You may want to work with a financial professional to identify a strategy to cope with a more turbulent investment atmosphere. Such a strategy can keep you from overreacting to market downturns and possibly even help you capitalize on short-term pullbacks. You could invest systematically by putting the same amount of money in the same investments each month. When prices go up, your investment dollars will buy fewer shares, and when prices drop, you’ll buy more shares. And the more shares you own, the greater your potential for accumulation. However, this strategy, sometimes known as dollar cost averaging, won’t guarantee a profit or protect against all losses, and you need to be willing to keep investing when share prices are declining. During a raging bull market, it’s not all that hard for anyone to invest successfully. But it becomes more challenging when the inevitable volatility and market downturns appear. Making the moves described above can help you keep moving toward your goals – even when the “bull” has taken a breather. Article by Danielle Jeffcoat, AAMS® Financial Advisor and Edward Jones
Consider rebalancing your portfolio. If appropriate, you may want to rebalance your investment mix to ensure you have a reasonable percentage of stocks – to help provide the growth you need to achieve your goals – and enough fixed-income vehicles, such as bonds, to help reduce your portfolio’s vulnerability to market volatility and potential short-term downturns. Look beyond U.S. borders. At any given time, U.S. stocks may be doing well, while

There’s been a few Tail Tales so far but I think I might be the cutest. I’m your friendly neighborhood French Bulldog pup, Moonpie Kirk, and I’m this month’s Tail Tale! I’m one of three Frenchies in my family and live with my mom Autumn and my two big sisters Byrdie and Lola. Did you see my picture? Cute, right? I’m very cute. One day, my mom decided that three Frenchies was a perfect number so she scooped me up and added me to the family! Mom moved here years ago from Austin, TX, because she loves it here. We all just moved into Hampton Lake a few months ago and WE. LOVE. IT! I’m a puppy, which means trouble and I seem to find each other daily. I'm teething, so I like to chew on bones which helps my gums. And other things, which is a special trick, because when I sample other things around, Mom just gives me more bones! I love to snuggle, play with my two big sisters, eat as much as my mommy will
my sisters Byr
die and Lola
allow, and snore. It’s a bulldog thing. Everything is new to me, so I love to explore. I found a giant shoe that I had fun chewing until mommy took it away. More bones! I love to make new friends like Abby on Driftwood Ct and I love to wrestle with my sisters. They think they can take me, but I’m one tough cookie (again, see my picture, cute, right)! My mom stays pretty busy with work as an interior designer. She loves to be creative and to help people! While she’s away I love to play with my favorite toy, my chewy vuitton. Once she gets home, my favorite place to hang out is on her shoulder to have a short snooze until it’s dinner time. Since I’m a growing pup, I love food! I get to eat Royal Canin and sometimes some green beans, my two favorites, for dinner. On the days mom is off, we’ll visit Vets to Pets Mobile Vet, Dr. Trammell, for my check ups or when I’m not feeling so great. If it’s not the vet then we’re going to visit Karen at Just The Bark Shack to keep me looking good! We’re a busy family and glad we get to enjoy time with each other at the end of the day. It’s even better that we get to live in a beautiful place called Hampton Lake. And I have bones. And I’m cute!

appy Holidays to each one of you and all your families. I would also like to wish a very festive season’s greetings from our staff to the members, and to all the individuals who make Hampton Lake the best community in America, as Mike Calvert mentioned. Last month we had a wonderful open house for Crystal Lake and many other things to be thankful for. I look forward to this time of year, when everyone is thinking
about those closest to them and the joy they bring. We hope you enjoy sharing this special season with your friends and neighbors at the Santa’s Brunch on December 3rd, Gingerbread House Making Party on the 6th, and all the other wonderful events planned throughout December. Be sure not to forget about our New Year’s Eve Celebration coming up on the 31st as well. To get everyone excited for the upcoming 10th Annual Christmas Boat Parade, we’ve
included some photos from last year. Don’t forget to come out on December 16th from 3-5 PM and enjoy the parade on the water. Season’s Greetings and Happy Holidays. Bryan Rhame General Manager

Employee Spotlight Wade Bales Name: Wade Bales Occupation: Lake, Fish Management Family: Jennifer (wife), and kids Charles Wade, Jackson, Harrison, and Anna Lauren From: Bluffton What is your claim to fame? I’m the owner of Quality Lakes Inc and provide lake and fish management services to the Hampton Lake community. I am also the former General Manager. Tell us a little more about yourself. I grew up at Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton when it was open land. I received a B.S. and M.S. in Fisheries Management from Auburn University and, after working 15 years with SCDNR in the upstate and midlands regions of SC, I moved back to Bluffton in 2007, stepping full-time into our lake management business. Why did you decide to work in the community? We were blessed to assist Reed Development with launching Hampton Lake club as GM, overseeing initial setup of administrative services and service contracts for the community as well as overseeing lake management activities. I have continued on in the last capacity as we have grown out Quality Lakes.
What is an important message you would like to share with the community? Watershed protection is paramount. Spread the message that we can afford to set aside ecologically sensitive and important natural areas both biologically and socially to maintain the integrity of our environment. Otherwise, our oysters, our views, our water will no longer hold value! Why do we live here anyway? To look at shopping centers and parking lots? On a separate note: men, be a husband and father - don’t be missing in action! Those are great words to live by. Why don’t you tell us what you love about your job? Each lake or pond we manage is different and I enjoy the challenge of sifting through all the variables to determine what the best management steps are to produce a beautiful lake, awesome fishery or both. I love getting pictures of clients and their kids with fish they’ve caught or family activities on lakes we manage - very rewarding. I love working outside and having an excuse to always drive a truck!
Can you tell us about any nonprofits or special interests you support? I’m active with outreach ministry activities at our church, from cooking at large events, coaching upward sports, Awana many great opportunities to represent and share Christ with others. It's also been awesome to be involved in the development of the HL Fishing Club. They build and add habitat to the lake, monitor and care for the lake, and are always willing to introduce more people to great sport of fishing.

Let's Talk Nature
BY JORDAN WILLIAMS
ith the temperature dropping up North and driving many snowbird down, and winter here in the Lowcountry inching along, my favorite time of year approaches. Waterfowl migration is starting to take place this time of year and more and more waterfowl start to show up in the South. South Carolina is located on the Atlantic Flyway and is in the direct path of their migration in this area of the United States. The first indication of migration that I have noticed here at Hampton Lake is starting to see Pie Billed Grebes around the lake. The Grebes are usually the first species of waterfowl to show up in our neck of the woods once migration begins. Hampton Lake provides home to waterfowl, but we have done some preparation to try and increase the amount of ducks that actually roost in hopes of a population rise. You
might come across Pie Billed Grebes, Buffleheads, Hooded Mergansers, and wood ducks, common waterfowl in Hampton Lake. Wood ducks are arguably the most beautiful duck in the area. There is a large percentage of wood ducks that do not migrate and stay here year round because they can withstand warm temperatures - but are still known to migrate. A special thanks to member Walt Perkowski for providing the new wood duck houses that have recently been placed throughout the wetlands of the community. I would also like to thank Avern Monteque for stepping out of his element and wading around in the swamps with me to put these duck houses up! If you notice any waterfowl living in any of the duck houses, please report the information to me for caretaking purposes.

Second fish weighed slightly under 4 lbs and both returned safely to the lake so they can be caught again during this weekend’s upcoming tourney...” Congratulations to you Lee! And a special congratulations again to your partner in crime, at the tournament, Army Veteran Matthew Diguardi.

The Grand Opening of
and the Cottage Idea Home by Logan Homes
From November ninth through eleventh last month, members, builders, and the developers enjoyed the grand opening of Crystal Lake and the unveiling of the Logan Homes Cottage Idea Home at 218 Castaway, known as â€œThe Greenwood.â€? The new neighborhood has been very popular (according to real estate sales), offering quaint lakefront cottages to new community members. Whether paddle boarding is your thing, or you just prefer scenic vistas, Crystal Lake has a lot to offer. The 9th featured a realtor open house, the 10th

The weather definitely threw the anglers a curve ball once they woke up on Saturday morning. The temperature was in the high 40’s and the wind was gusting at 15-20 mph. The wind calmed down a little Sunday morning, but overall more fish were caught on Saturday. When the environment doesn’t provide the most ideal fishing weather, you always have to remind yourself that you cannot catch em’ from the couch!

It’s not only the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also the busiest! With November comes the holiday hubbub and there were plenty of events to break away from preparing for family visits with the impending holidays...
The month kicked off with the 10th Annual Taste of Waddell on November 5th. For it’s 10th year, folks came together for a celebration of the Port Royal Sound ecosystem! This evening included food from Hudson’s Seafood House, live music, a raffle and silent auction -- all benefiting Waddell's local cobia and red drum research, summer intern program and dolphin & turtle stranding program. That day was also the Inaugural Lowcountry Tiny House Show. This show, at Shelter Cove, saw several builders showcase their uniquely designed tiny homes. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales benefitted DragonBoat Beaufort too. For the week of November 6th through the 12th, Savannah celebrated food and wine with the Savannah Food and Wine Festival. Culinary artistry was on display with some of the city’s best chefs and favorite restaurants. The festivities featured the Grand Reserve and Silent Auction as well as the casual River Street Stroll and Taste of Savannah. Bluffton Town Council Elections took place on November 7th, and the winners were Larry Toomer with 905 votes at 43% and Fred Hamilton Jr. at 775 votes (36%) meaning nominee Ted Huffman was not elected with 21% of the votes (446 total). You can see how important voting is in local elections with such narrow total vote margins. All you can eat steamed oysters, lowcountry boil, pulled pork, seafood chowder & chili were just a few things to be had at the Hilton Head Oyster Festival from November 10th through the 12th. This festival included live entertainment, a kid zone, local artisan pop up shops,

marshmallow roasting and a sports lounge for fall football fanatics. November 14th was the day for the Robert Mondavi Jr. Dinner where vino connoisseurs enjoyed a wine dinner in the Heritage Room in the Harbour Town Clubhouse and learned about Mondavi Jr.’s journey into wine that began more than 30 years ago. The middle of November kicked off the Christmas festivities with Hilton Head Preparatory School's Festival of Trees from November 16th to the 30th. One of Hilton Head Island's largest holidaythemed festivals, over 1,000 people attend this event each year! The 2017 Festival of Trees was once again held at the Sonesta Resort in Shipyard Plantation and the conifers were a spectacular display with beautifully and creatively-themed Christmas trees in all sizes and colors. Trees are sponsored and decorated by local organizations, businesses, and individuals.
Farther North on November 18th, but not all the way to the North Pole, the first Lowcountry Fair with Historical Flair took place. Featuring historic and cultural activities highlighting the unique heritage of the South Carolina Lowcountry, this fun family event was a great success and promises to return! This fair celebrated traditions that made the Lowcountry what
Honoring and Supporting our First Responders The Inaugural Songs and Beers for Heroes originally scheduled for 9/11, was postponed due to the hurricane and held on held on October 23rd. In spite of a terrible storm on the 23rd, the community still came together and made the event a success. Raising nearly $10,000 for the surviving families of fallen First Responders, the funds were presented to the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire, the charity that provides financial assistance to the families. You can learn more about this charity at www.twohundredclub.org

FogetAboutIt! was the BRAWL OF THE BALLS, a competition for local restaurants and organizations to battle to be titled the area’s Best Meatball in 3 distinct categories occurred. The Meatball Run’s big brother, Vinny, also known as the Hilton Head Italian Heritage Festival, took place that weekend.

Savannah Hosts Children's Book Festival The 18th was the busiest day of the month for events around the Lowcountry this past November! One of them not to be missed, if you have children or are shopping for grandchildren, was the 14th Annual Children’s Book Festival in Forsyth Park. This festival featured local and regional children’s book authors and illustrators, activities, book sales, and more! Highlights include not just book signings, but readings from a wide variety of authors, giveaways, and many indie authors from throughout the area. Kwame Alexander headlined the event this year and many illustrators also made appearances to inspire children to pursue the arts!

Sport Fishing Update
I don’t think it’s any surprise that right now is perhaps the very best time to enjoy the outdoors in the Lowcountry. With the crisp mornings and warm afternoons, it is an outdoorsman’s paradise. This season provides so many opportunities for the Lowcountry sportsman, from phenomenal fishing to excellent hunting, to the simple backyard oyster roast. The hardest part is trying to find the time to fit them all in! As an avid fisherman and hunter myself, I have been enjoying each of these pastimes with my family every weekend. The Redfish and Sea Trout bite has been outstanding. It has been quite common to come home after a day of 30-50 fish releases. From keeper sized fish up in the creeks to giant Bull Redfish on the outer sandbars and deep
holes, there is ample opportunity for any style of fishing you prefer. The shrimping season is well underway as well. Whether you prefer to bait for shrimp or “deephole” at the mouths and turns in the rivers and sounds, there has been a good amount of shrimp around to fill your nets. From my personal experience, the shrimp seem to be a bit bigger this year than they were around this time last year – certainly a positive sign! Whatever you favorite pastime is – be sure to get outdoors and enjoy it during this special time of the year. Please remember to only harvest the amount of fish, shrimp, etc. that you truly will eat. Leave the rest for our future generations to enjoy! Tight lines,
Coastal Conservation Association, Bluffton Chapter Chairman, State Board Member
What’s Biting I N S H O R E
Redfish – try fresh cut mullet or menhaden on a circle hook in the deep holes at the mouths of creeks and along oyster bars at low or falling tide Sea Trout – try live shrimp under a popping cork along the grass lines or oyster bars
O F F S H O R E
Wahoo – try slow trolling rigged ballyhoo with pink or blue skirts. Fast trolling has been spotty Blackfin Tuna – try bump trolling live menhaden when fish are seen breaking the surface Triggerfish – try a double drop rig with cut squid in 80+ feet of water If you catch any nice fish, be sure to snap a photo and send it to in fo@ha mpton la ke.com mu nit y you never know what you might win!
