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.
