Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has had a great fall and winter and is looking forward to spending time at the lake in the upcoming months. We have a few things planned already with more in the works.

Annual General Meeting

The SLSBC annual general meeting will be held at the McGurk cabin on Sun, May 21 at 2 pm. It will be a potluck so please bring an appetizer/dessert/snack if you are attending, The McGurk cabin is in Square Bay and is the one with the yellow umbrellas. It is a boat access cabin so boat parking is limited – bring a smaller boat if possible or try and come with neighbours. See the image of the map below for location.

Summer Social

The summer social will be held on July 8th at 2 pm. Bev and Larry Van Hatten have generously offered to host. This will also be a potluck event. The Van Hatten cabin can be accessed by boat or road and is located south of the boat launch. If driving, the address is 14837 Sunshine Coast Highway and it is the first driveway after leaving Sakinaw Lake Road – follow signs to Van Hatten. If you are coming by boat, be mindful of limited boat parking.

On the map below, the McGurk cabin is indicated by the yellow pin and the VanHatten cabin is indicated by the blue pin. For reference, the boat launch is shown with the orange pin and the waterski dock is the grey pin.

Waterski Camp from WSWBC – maybe?

Waterski Wake-sports BC (WSWBC) is interested in hosting a waterski camp at Sakinaw Lake. Are you interested? If there are enough people who want to participate, we can make this happen! As a first step, please fill out this survey. We will be collecting responses for this survey until May 5th.

These camps run for three days (Fri, Sat and Sun) and are geared towards ages 19 and under to develop and grow the sport of waterskiing in the province. WSWBC would provide coaches and the camps would run from morning until mid afternoon with about eight participants. Participants would work on their waterskiing and also learn how to use trick skis. We would love to benefit from this opportunity so fill out the survey and let us know your thoughts!

Thanks and have a great long weekend!
