May 2024 Fishing Clinic is a Big Hit!

Our annual spring fishing clinic was held at Lake Hamilton on May 11, 2024.

Many kids and their families turned out on this beautiful spring day. The unusually cool weather meant that the fish were not biting as well as they usually do in May. Some kids did catch fish, though, and everyone had a good time.

Many thanks to our fishing coaches Jamey Culbertson and Bob Broussard for all their work with the kids. And a big thank you to Jack Bayliss for organizing this fun community event!

Annual Members’ Meeting – March 26, 2024 @ 7:00 pm

Our annual meeting for 2024 will be held on Tuesday evening, March 26, at 7:00 pm in the clubhouse at Hamilton Lakes Swim and Tennis Club, 800 Montpelier Drive, Greensboro.

Electing the Board of Directors is vital part of our annual meeting. Our bylaws permit us to have up to eleven Board members. Several of the current Directors are stepping down in 2024. If you’re interested in helping to steer the direction of our association and make a lasting mark on our amazing neighborhood, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to join the Board.

Aside from attending quarterly meetings and providing input via email on issues that may arise, there are no special requirements for being a Director. We welcome enthusiastic, caring people with fresh ideas!

We will also review our proposed budget for 2024. There’s also a proposal to install commemorative signage at some of the main street intersections in our neighborhood. The City of Greensboro requires a community vote to proceed.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting! Seating may be limited; please bring a folding chair if you have one.

Community Picnic and Fishing Clinic – Sunday, Sept 17, 2024

It’s time for our annual fall fishing clinic and community picnic on the third Sunday of September.

Our busy afternoon kicks off at 2:00 with what has always been a favorite of the young-at-heart in Hamilton Lakes, our fishing clinic on the dam at Lake Euphemia. In a community tradition stretching back for ten years, our resident experts will provide coaching and help novices learn the fine art of lake fishing.

Kids of all ages are welcome! Please bring your rod and reel, or use one of our loaners. Our coaches will be on hand from 2:00 to 4:00.

Gerald Hall, the “Egg Man,” has provided GREAT BAIT for our clinics for ten years. With his magic, we have caught hundreds of fish. Jamey Culbertson and Bob Broussard have been our dedicated coaches for our clinics.

If you would like to volunteer, let us know. It is great to help a child be successful, and the smiles are a great reward for spending a morning outdoors in your community. Many children, and some teenagers, have caught their first fish at our clinics.

We invite you to bring kids to our clinic who are interested in learning to fish or honing their skills. Association membership is not required, although we can certainly use your help to maintain our lakes, dams and trails via our annual dues.

Buy a child a new rod, and she will be psyched. Catching your first fish is an experience you’ll never forget! Your Association really enjoys encouraging kids to take up fishing as a relaxing outdoor hobby. Our coaches volunteer their time, provide loaner rods, and donate rods and tackle for budding fisherfolk.

Our community picnic kicks into gear at 5:00 that afternoon on the banks of Little Lake Euphemia, along Starmount Drive between Kemp Road East and Kemp Road West.

Live music will be provided by the Alley Rabbits, who are local favorites for their bluegrass-flavored interpretation of classic tunes! You can learn more about them on their webpage at

Taqueria Azteca’s taco truck, always a big hit, will be on hand. Sweet Carolina from Reidsville will have ice cream and other treats for sale. Bring a blanket and chairs, and relax and enjoy what has always been a wonderful afternoon event.

Here’s hoping for beautiful weather and a happy turnout!

“Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all?”

That’s the cry of the Barred Owl, often heard reverberating through our neighborhood after sunset and before sunrise.

Barred owls are highly territorial, and they choose a mate in the middle of winter. This year, the evening of January 6 appeared to be the winter social “hoot-enanny,” as dozens of owls loudly staked their claims to mates and roosts.

The owls lay a clutch of eggs, which are incubated for a period of about four weeks. This nesting pair has delighted keen-eyed passersby along the Henderson Road side of the path in the City park near Williamsburg Road. We will be watching for babies toward the end of February.

3rd Annual Holiday Sailboat Parade – Dec. 20, 2022

The Greensboro Model Yacht Club is pleased to present the 3rd Annual Lighted Sailboat Parade on Lake Hamilton. The show begins at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, December 20, 2022. (In the event of rain that evening, they will postpone until the next evening with good weather.)

The viewing area is the shoulder of Keeling Road East and the dam embankment along Lake Hamilton. For your safety and the protection of others, please stay off of the street itself, and do not go into the park past the dam.

For information on the event, club, or boats, contact Ron Small .

Please join us for this beautiful regatta to celebrate the holidays!
