March 25th, Celebrating a Legend: Bob’s Birthday Breakfast

Celebrating a legend: Bob’s Birthday Breakfast set for March 25

A pancake breakfast to celebrate the 106 th birthday of Robert P. McCulloch, the founder of Lake Havasu City, is planned for March 25. Although McCulloch’s birthday is actually in May, he shouldn’t mind celebrating during a cooler time of the year.

The breakfast is from beginning at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Lake Havasu Museum of History, 320 London Bridge Road. Donations will be accepted to cover breakfast. In addition to pancakes, there will be mimosas, cake, a poker game and trivia.

A new attraction at the breakfast – a Museum Mystery Sale – has been added this year.

The museum is cleaning out its back room to gain some space and items suitable for sale will be offered to breakfast attendees.

McCulloch’s J2 Gyroplane will be on site for photo opportunities.

Bob’s Birthday Breakfast offers an opportunity not only to enjoy a pancake breakfast, but to also learn more about the amazing man who built Lake Havasu City from 26 square miles of barren desert. Admission to the museum is free during the breakfast.

For more information, call 928-854- 4938.

The Lake Havasu Museum of History will host Bob’s Birthday Breakfast March 25
from 8-10 a.m. It is a celebration for a man whose vision was boundless. Pictured here is one of
his iconic saddle oxfords in the museum exhibit recounting the building of the city.
Robert McCulloch’s J2 Gyroplane will be on display at Bob’s Birthday Breakfast at
the Lake Havasu Museum of History March 25. The history of the production of the J2 can be
found in the museum exhibit dedicated to McCulloch and the building of Lake Havasu City.

Victory for Lake Havasu: Boating Restrictions Lifted

Victory for Lake Havasu!

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Fully Withdraws Lake Havasu Boating Restrictions.

 

Lake Havasu City resident Ryder Bliss (pictured above) is a ten-year-old who had his favorite wakeboarding spot closed for no legitimate reason in May 2015 due to federal overreach from the Fish and Wildlife Service.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) announced that beginning on February 1, 2017, the ½ mile backwater no-wake restriction for Lake Havasu that was designated in May 2015 will be lifted:

“After nearly two years of tirelessly fighting back against an arbitrary and overreaching bureaucratic decision, Lake Havasu will once again be open for all users. Lifting the boating restrictions on the ‘Ryde Spot’ marks a complete victory for the countless stakeholders and community leaders who stood shoulder to shoulder with me and spoke out when the very livelihood of Lake Havasu City was threatened. This win sends a clear message to all federal agencies that we the people have real power when united behind a worthwhile cause. We will not stand for lawless, unilateral actions by rogue bureaucrats.

“I applaud the efforts of the many individuals who were instrumental in today’s victory including: Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen; the Arizona Game and Fish Department; the Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce; U.S. Senator John McCain; Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson; the entire Bliss family including Nick, Jenni and my pal Ryder. Tip of the hat to Director Tuggle for finally seeing the light and listening to local stakeholders.

“As the new Refuge Manager takes over next month, the Lake Havasu community and I will remain vigilant to ensure that any future Compatibility Determination (CD) is enacted lawfully, allows for multiple-use and is developed using a bottom-up approach that keeps Lake Havasu open for business. I couldn’t be more excited about today’s victory and can’t wait to join Ryder Bliss for a day on the Reservoir.”

Congressman Gosar is very appreciative to everyone that played an important role in this effort
