2021 Newsletter!

Hi everyone,

The Sakinaw Lake Ski & Board Club 2021 newsletter is out! We have had to modify club activities this summer (and last summer) due to Covid-19, but we have a few safe events planned, including a couple of weekend clinics led by our own talented Tessa Campbell, and a virtual tournament led by Gord Cameron. Barry Krangle has worked his magic to get a band out to the lake for some live entertainment and we will continue with our weekly photo contests and the end of summer Guess Where? contest. Details can be found in the newsletter here.

See you at the lake!

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team

It’s Summer!

It seems like the weather is finally warming up and the lake is beckoning. We are in week #2 of our Photo Contest – keep those pictures coming! And Barry Krangle has set up a spike ball net on the ski dock for everyone to enjoy.

Spike Ball Champs! Undefeated lake spike ball champs Patti Zee and Mario Cee ready to take on all challengers. Spike ball court is set up on the ski dock , ready for anyone who wants to play.

With more people in the water, it’s important for everyone to be safe. Tessa Campbell and Brian Welch have been doing a great job of maintaining the courses. If you happen to notice problems with the course, email us at info@slsbc.ca.

If you’re towing a waterskier, wakeboarder, or tuber, make sure that there is a spotter in the boat and the person being towed is familiar with hand signals to request speeding up, slowing down, cutting the motor, heading home, stopping, and signalling that they are okay.

Here’s what Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada have to say about how to pick up a fallen waterskier:

And here’s what Boat U.S. has to say about boat driving etiquette:

Hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start!

Classifieds for SLSBC Community

Do you have equipment to sell, swap, or simply give away? Or maybe you are interested in buying or borrowing equipment? Either way, post it on the SLSBC Facebook page. Posts will appear on the `Community‘ section of the SLSBC Facebook page. This is a great forum to communicate with all the members of the SLSBC. A few tips: clearly indicate whether you are ‘SELLING’ or ‘BUYING’, ‘BORROWING’ or ‘LENDING’, or ‘GIVING AWAY’. Include details of the item and a maybe a picture. Interested people can DM directly. We know everyone has some type of equipment they do not use anymore, or something they need or would like, and thought this might be a good way to make use of the equipment we own and don’t use.

Summer 2020 COVID-19 Update

Hello everyone, 

We have made the decision not to proceed with the tournament, or any clinics or socials this summer. We considered this very carefully and ultimately decided that proceeding with any of these events could compromise the safety of members, and so wasn’t worth the risk. Though this is disappointing and we were really looking forward to a great season, we are instead going to put together creative ways for club members to stay safely connected and motivated to be on the water.

Some of the things you can look forward to are regular photo contests, expansion of the website, and possibly even a “virtual tournament”. Details for all of these things will be coming soon, so keep checking the website.

In the meantime, here’s a memory from last year’s BBQ and we look forward to seeing everyone up at the lake. If you have any thoughts or questions, please email them to info@slsbc.ca.

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team

SLSBC Update and Mid-Summer Social

Hello everyone, 

You’re probably wondering what’s been going on with the Sakinaw Lake Ski & Board Club this year. First an apology that this wasn’t sent out to everyone sooner.

  1. Both the North and South slalom courses are (as of July 13th) ready to go!  Thank you to Mark Aplas, Brian Welch, and Michelle Ross for getting the ski courses ready for the season!  It takes a lot of help to maintain the courses throughout the year, so if you notice missing buoys or other course issues, there are spare supplies in the dock box on the ski dock.  If you aren’t sure how to repair the course, send us a quick note and we’ll make sure it’s taken care of.

  2. Over the winter break we purchased a ton of club swag!  Stop by Trina’s and she can show you what we have for sale. Trina will be at the lake on the July 27th/28th weekend, and from August 1st to 23rd.

  3. We don’t have any summer clinics or our annual tournament planned for 2019.  Going forward we need new members to join the executive to organize our summer events and help run the club.  If you know anyone who might be interested, please let us know.  To decide on the next steps for the club, and see who would like to help out…

  4. We’re holding a mid-summer social on August 10th at Ted and Bev McGurks from 2PM – 4PM.  Their place is at the end of Square Bay (with the yellow umbrellas).  Bring an appy to share.  We’ll have soft drinks available. Again, thank you to the McGurks for hosting. If you know anyone who might like to help organize club events going forward, please invite them.

Sincerely,

Your SLSBC Executive Team
