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,


Your SLSBC Executive Team
