No cruises this weekend...
James and Jennifer Andrews are celebrating 20 years of wedded bliss this weekend. So The Grand Lake Queens will be closed. Please join us next weekend!!
Pensacola Dam was not completely finished in the early summer of 1940 but that did not stop this boat from visiting the waters of a brand-new Grand Lake.
Another cool photo...
For roughly two years, the concrete needed to construct Pensacola Dam was poured round-the-clock, right on through the wee hours.

The Grand Lake Otters!
OKLAHOMA OTTERS!!! Look at this family of river otters out for a snack at Grand Lake. They caught a nice-sized large mouth bass and swam over to the bank to chow down. Heath Lockart shared this video with me... he said it’s the first time he’s seen otters in his 26 years of going to Grand Lake.
An Oklahoman report from 1985 says the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) was working then to reintroduce river ottersr and 35 years later it looks like it worked!
Thanks for sharing, Heath!

Downtown Ketchum, May '38. Pretty cool...
This photo was submitted by Connie Schofield of the Craig County Genealogical Society of buildings and businesses from Ketchum in May 1938. They want to know if anyone knows any history about the buildings/businesses. Historical photos like these will be in the Weekender’s Rodeo edition. If you have information about this photo call the Journal at 918-256-6422 or post here on Facebook.

As we continue to celebrate Pensacola Dam’s 80th birthday in 2020, we’re taking the opportunity to look back on some interesting facts, figures and individuals that have played a role in the dam’s existence and service to Oklahoma over the years. Today, we look back on the efforts to promote the idea of a dam, not only in Oklahoma but all the way to the nation’s capital... https://www.grda.com/promoting-the-idea/

Can you help me put together the most complete online Business Directory in the Grand Lake area?
I've got a good start, but there are a bunch more businesses out there that need to get added.
So, whether you have a business or know someone who does, do this:
Click the link in the first comment (because, you know, Facebook) and go fill out the info. That's it!
I know we are all on Facebook, but there exists an entire business world OFF of Facebook, and let's help Grand Lake businesses be found there as well.
(And yes... I'm still working on cleaning up categories and such, but let's start getting this thing filled up!)
Coming very, very, soon. The Pourhouse is going to be a GREAT addition to Grand Lake!
Charcuterie Boards and Wine flights only at the Pourhouse!
We are working hard training our staff, and preparing to give you the BEST GUEST experience possible!

Grand River Dam Authority
Pensacola Dam was completed during a hydroelectric boom in the United States.
Over a 20-year span, the country’s hydroelectric generation capacity nearly tripled.
Other notable projects completed during that era included the Hoover Dam (1936, on the Colorado River) and Fort Peck Dam (1940, on the Missouri River).
