What a Night!

The first boats arriving for the concert

Last Saturday night, the Sakinaw Lake Ski and Board Club hosted the first ever floating dock dance on the lake. And what a night it was! More than 400 of you came out to enjoy the festivities in about 65 boats. Poppa Greg and the Chillin’ Dylans – aided by our own Barry Krangle on harmonica and Guff Muench on accordion – fired off two outstanding sets to the cheers and howls from our incredible Sakinaw Lake community. Hopefully, we can turn this into an annual event!

This idea was dreamed up by Barry Krangle and was made into a reality by the efforts of Barry Krangle and Gord Cameron who secured the band, with huge help from Brian Welch and Mark Aplas who tuned up the dock, power washed, and adjusted the floats. Gord Cameron and family put hours into cleaning up the destroyed tent, removing the fittings, transporting the band and setting the scene for a perfect evening. A huge thanks go out to all of them for their efforts in bringing us this event. Sakinaw Lake ski and Board Club is ready to receive your memberships, sponsor clinics, and talk competition, so stay tuned.

Thank you all for such great support and spirit and welcome new members.
