The Anchor at Shangri-La Roster

The Anchor at Shangri-La Roster

Last month I wrote about the importance of assembling an outstanding team. This month I am happy to announce we have done just that. We have an amazing group of motivated, ambitious young team members that will make up the part-time/seasonal staff of the Anchor Entertainment Team. They will be led by two equally ambitious and extremely talented individuals comprising our full-time staff: Chase Kreutz & Winston Watkins.

Chase should be a recognizable face to anyone familiar with the Shangri-La marina, having worked there multiple summers before jumping at this opportunity. He grew up in Grove in a family that is intimately involved throughout the community. His father, Bobby, is the assistant principal at Grove High School. Chase is about to graduate from Oklahoma State University, also with his B.S. degree in Sports Management, and is eager to get started at The Anchor. His hobbies include hunting & fishing the Grand Lake area, cheering on OSU athletics, golfing at Shangri-La, & watching the New York Yankees. A huge baseball fan, he is most excited about the mini-Fenway WIFFLE Ball park & the tournaments & home run derbies to be hosted there in the future. When asked about what he can bring to the table in his prominent role, he states, “showing that The Anchor has something to offer for everyone, from indoor to outdoor activities. I want to showcase the capabilities of what The Anchor is going to bring to Shangri-La.”

Winston should be a familiar face to many of you who enjoy playing golf at Shangri-La. Winston, from Dwight, IL, graduated from Oklahoma State University with a B.S. degree in Sports Management. He likes to golf, get on the lake, & occasionally sing karaoke on Thursdays at Doc’s. He is most excited about the Trackman golf simulators, knowing they will give our members & guests the ability to play a round of golf at Shangri-La & other famous courses across the world no matter the time, day, or weather. Asked what he is excited to bring to his leadership role, he states, “I’ll be bringing the same positive attitude & energy I’ve had in the Shangri-La Golf Shop to The Anchor. I look forward to seeing everyone there!”

Needless to say, I am thrilled to have Chase, Winston, & the entire part-time/seasonal crew on board. Their vision, motivation & dedication gives me great confidence that we have the right group in place to launch in May.
