Summer Update

Summer events are in full swing!  We still have a few more great events for this summer.  The Canada Day party was perfectly planned around the rain, everyone looked great in their red and white colors!  Thanks again to the Saunders/Cameron families who hosted the event, their hospitality was greatly appreciated.  Fireworks and the singing of O Canada were some of the highlights.

Events still to come:

Karina Nowlan’s 2nd clinic – August 10-12th.  Now full.

SLSBC Annual Ski/board/surf Competition – Saturday, August 18th.  Everyone is invited to participate and help out.  There will be a barbeque and awards ceremony after the surf competition.  If you would like to volunteer please email

We always enjoy having these great instructors come up to lake but we do need families to host these instructors.  There are usually great benefits in hosting the instructors as you may get some added tips and instruction, plus they are just great people to hang out with!  Please email if you would like to host on one of these weekends, without hosts we can not bring up these fantastic instructors.

You can sign up online for the above clinics, please do so before the date.  Go to and click on “Clinics” to sign up online.

Summer Social

The Sakinaw Lake Ski and Board Club annual social barbeque date and location has been set!
It will be held Sunday, July 1st, starting at 5 pm, rain or shine (hopefully the latter). The Saunders and Camerons are co-hosting the event.

Since it will be Canada Day, the theme will be … (drumroll please) … you guessed it: A Canadian theme! Anything else would be just so un-patriotic . Whether you fancy red + white, hockey, beer, outdoors, etc., it’s easy and all good. So come celebrate with us and show off your best nationalistic pride.

SLSBC will supply the hamburgers, hot dogs, pop and water. BYOB and also please bring either an appetizer, salad or dessert.

Please RSVP to with the number of people in your party before June 26th so that we can plan accordingly. Thank you.

We look forward to seeing you!
