SLSBC Photo Contests

Even though we can’t get together as a community, we still want members of the SLSBC to feel connected. So, we will be having weekly photo contests throughout the summer. The contests will run for six consecutive days, starting each Friday morning and ending each Wednesday night. There will be a new contest every week! During that time, post your best watersport pictures with a caption under the Facebook post announcing the weekly contest. If you don’t have a facebook account, you can email your picture with a caption to info@slsbc.ca and we will post on your behalf. People can ‘like’ any pictures that they think are deserving. The photo with the most likes by end of day Thursday wins a gorgeous Sakinaw Lake insulated waterbottle.

The first contest will start this Friday, July 3 at 7 am! No posting before then!

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

SLSBC Update and Mid-Summer Social

Hello everyone, 

You’re probably wondering what’s been going on with the Sakinaw Lake Ski & Board Club this year. First an apology that this wasn’t sent out to everyone sooner.

  1. Both the North and South slalom courses are (as of July 13th) ready to go!  Thank you to Mark Aplas, Brian Welch, and Michelle Ross for getting the ski courses ready for the season!  It takes a lot of help to maintain the courses throughout the year, so if you notice missing buoys or other course issues, there are spare supplies in the dock box on the ski dock.  If you aren’t sure how to repair the course, send us a quick note and we’ll make sure it’s taken care of.

  2. Over the winter break we purchased a ton of club swag!  Stop by Trina’s and she can show you what we have for sale. Trina will be at the lake on the July 27th/28th weekend, and from August 1st to 23rd.

  3. We don’t have any summer clinics or our annual tournament planned for 2019.  Going forward we need new members to join the executive to organize our summer events and help run the club.  If you know anyone who might be interested, please let us know.  To decide on the next steps for the club, and see who would like to help out…

  4. We’re holding a mid-summer social on August 10th at Ted and Bev McGurks from 2PM – 4PM.  Their place is at the end of Square Bay (with the yellow umbrellas).  Bring an appy to share.  We’ll have soft drinks available. Again, thank you to the McGurks for hosting. If you know anyone who might like to help organize club events going forward, please invite them.

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team

Annual Tournament Saturday August 18th

Hi everyone,

We are excited to remind you that this Saturday, August 18th, is our annual Sakinaw Lake Ski & Board Club tournament!

We welcome participants of all ages, regardless of abilities, including those who have never skied the course! Come out and have some fun and laughs. First time in a ski competition? Don’t worry, we have categories for both adults and kids who have never made it through the course!

If you prefer being in a boat, rather than behind one, come cheer on the “excellent display of water skiing talent cruising the lake” – Sunshine Coast Tourism.

7AM Waterskiing
10AM Wakeboarding
11AM Wakesurfing

All events first come first served.

Join us on the dock at 1:30PM after the competitions for hot dogs and hamburgers, with some sensational awards at 2PM from Lulu Lemon, The Boardroom, The Blackfish, Columbia Fuels, Petro-Can, Swish, Zokolo, Madeira Pharmacy, IGA Madeira Park, GBS, and more!

If we end up behind schedule (not unheard of!) we’ll send out updates throughout the day.

Also we have some great draw prices, including paragliding off Mt. Hallowell (tandem with instructor), Cocktail Cruises with lake celebrities, and Fishing Adventures! All club members and competitors eligible for the draws.

The forecast looks great, but in the event of rain, we will postpone the tournament until Sunday August 19th.

We are still looking for pickup boats for Wakeboarding. If you’re available, let us know.

Hope to see everyone there,

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team

As a reminder, only full club members can participate in the tournament. Renewal is quick and easy, Click Here to renew your membership if you haven’t already.
