Its definitely time to stay off of the ice now. The water has come up quite a bit over the past week or so and the spring sun has done its work on the lake and snow. Roads are pretty soft so be careful on the shoulders and have an eye out for the usual spring pot-holes.
As always, we need at least 2 weeks notice to get your boat out of storage and ready for the water, so please email or call Michelle to make necessary arrangements.  Dock orders for this summer have also stacked up quickly, so if you are considering a new dock for your toys or to sit and relax on this season, please contact Ryan as soon as possible.
Also we are getting our lost and found page back up and running. Let us know if mysterious items have drifted ashore over the winter and spring, or if you are missing something and hopefully we can get things back to their owners!
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Easter

Well we promised exciting news and updates this week and we hope we can live up to that promise. We have been busy for the last 4 weeks building new docks! These include new gas docks (not pictured), and 2 sections of brand new slips to replace the oldest docks here. Led by the expertise of Ryan, our resident dock builder, we’ve had help from all of our full time staff, and even a guest appearance from a friendly face who lives south of the border! We’ve jumped on them, ran across them and tried to rock them to make sure they are sturdy and stable and so far they have passed with flying colours! The foot of ice they are on might have impacted test results…we’ll get back to you when they are floating.

There isn’t much else to report here other than there is still lots of ice on the lakes, but they have started bringing the water levels up, so the ice is slowly pulling away from shore.
We’ve updated our events page for this season with as much as we know of so far. Lori Harper is running an Emergency First Aid and CPR-C course at the community centre on June 8th, as well as swimming lessons again this summer.

We are still closed on Sundays until Mother’s Day, but here Monday – Saturday from 9am-4pm. Have a great weekend and enjoy the spring-like weather they are predicting.

Just a quick update for those who are thinking of venturing up over the weekend. The roads are getting soft and are icy in spots, and despite the warmer sun, there is still a lot of snow in the bush and in areas that haven’t been cleared. If your lane wasn’t plowed over the winter you will likely need snowshoes or skis to get in. We still see people travelling by atv on the ice, but again if you are not 100% sure of the currents and areas to stay away from, it’s probably not a good idea to venture out now. The ice isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but the conditions are changing daily.

We re-open on Monday, and for the month of April are open Monday-Saturday from 9am-4pm, and closed on Good Friday.
More exciting news and updates to come next week! Stay tuned and have a great weekend!
