It’s Summer!

It seems like the weather is finally warming up and the lake is beckoning. We are in week #2 of our Photo Contest – keep those pictures coming! And Barry Krangle has set up a spike ball net on the ski dock for everyone to enjoy.

Spike Ball Champs! Undefeated lake spike ball champs Patti Zee and Mario Cee ready to take on all challengers. Spike ball court is set up on the ski dock , ready for anyone who wants to play.

With more people in the water, it’s important for everyone to be safe. Tessa Campbell and Brian Welch have been doing a great job of maintaining the courses. If you happen to notice problems with the course, email us at info@slsbc.ca.

If you’re towing a waterskier, wakeboarder, or tuber, make sure that there is a spotter in the boat and the person being towed is familiar with hand signals to request speeding up, slowing down, cutting the motor, heading home, stopping, and signalling that they are okay.

Here’s what Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada have to say about how to pick up a fallen waterskier:

And here’s what Boat U.S. has to say about boat driving etiquette:

Hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start!

Classifieds for SLSBC Community

Do you have equipment to sell, swap, or simply give away? Or maybe you are interested in buying or borrowing equipment? Either way, post it on the SLSBC Facebook page. Posts will appear on the `Community‘ section of the SLSBC Facebook page. This is a great forum to communicate with all the members of the SLSBC. A few tips: clearly indicate whether you are ‘SELLING’ or ‘BUYING’, ‘BORROWING’ or ‘LENDING’, or ‘GIVING AWAY’. Include details of the item and a maybe a picture. Interested people can DM directly. We know everyone has some type of equipment they do not use anymore, or something they need or would like, and thought this might be a good way to make use of the equipment we own and don’t use.

Summer 2020 COVID-19 Update

Hello everyone, 

We have made the decision not to proceed with the tournament, or any clinics or socials this summer. We considered this very carefully and ultimately decided that proceeding with any of these events could compromise the safety of members, and so wasn’t worth the risk. Though this is disappointing and we were really looking forward to a great season, we are instead going to put together creative ways for club members to stay safely connected and motivated to be on the water.

Some of the things you can look forward to are regular photo contests, expansion of the website, and possibly even a “virtual tournament”. Details for all of these things will be coming soon, so keep checking the website.

In the meantime, here’s a memory from last year’s BBQ and we look forward to seeing everyone up at the lake. If you have any thoughts or questions, please email them to info@slsbc.ca.

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team
