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.

We’re Back!

Hello members,

After a year-long hiatus, we’re excited to announce the Sakinaw Lake Ski & Board Club is back for 2018!

First of all, as we recently announced, Ken Johnston is stepping down as President. I’d like to sincerely thank Ken for all the work he put into the club over the past 7 years. Many of our events take a lot of effort to plan and organize, and Ken has contributed a considerable amount of time and energy to ensure they happen. Also Ken has offered to remain as Past President while we transition to a new executive. Thanks Ken!

Ken has graciously nominated me for President, and Genevieve Hassan, Niki Boyd, and Barry Krangle have all volunteered to step up to the executive. As this is your club, we hope to see all of you at our AGM this spring to vote in the new executive for 2018.

With our new additions to the club executive, we’re excited to be planning events for this summer. This club exists for the benefit of all of you, our members, so let us know what you’d like to see for 2018. Lessons? Socials? And as its only through all of your support that this club exists, if you’re willing to help with events, please let us know.

We plan to hold the AGM on the May long weekend, so stay tuned for details, and we hope to see you all there.

Thanks,

Andrew Ames
