A friendly tip as we head in to the weekend and more boats being launched. This isn’t the way to do it.

It’s a little brisk out there this morning, a big difference from Wednesday’s temps! The delivery crew is having quite the time bouncing around out on the lakes. We are very happy to have welcomed Gabe back this week to support Luke and Matt in the shop. He has already been a huge help and we are glad to have him back.

Leah has the store all stocked up including ice cream and all the Kawartha Dairy treats, a freezer full of meat from the Butcher Shoppe, a new delivery of chips, and some new sweet treats to add to the candy shelves for the kids (big and little) to explore.

We’ve decided to make a change this year to our store hours for the summer. Starting on Friday, June 26th we will be open from 8am-8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 8am-6pm Sunday-Thursday.

Big thank you to the Catch 507 for making some Friday staff lunches possible – we are looking forward to one today!

Have a great weekend

Another week has flown by, and the crew here are so glad the weather has been mostly in our favour.  They are doing a great job getting boats launched, but we still have a very long road ahead of us as we try to make up for lost time and get back on track. Inevitably we are behind as you might know from Leah’s emails, and each week we are trying to claw back bit by bit. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and patience.

We are continuing to keep our sales section updated each week as things come and go, but also keep in mind if you are looking for something new we can help there as well.  Contact Michelle and we will get the ball rolling so that you can enjoy a new water toy this summer.

Ryan is busy building custom docks and is still taking bookings for this year as well as next.  If you are thinking that it might be time for something more secure to keep your fleet safe, or a nice new dock for the kids to play on, contact Ryan and he can get you set up.

Some sad news for our candy kids this season.  As we continue trying to do our part to keep everyone safe, the girls have decided that the candy counter will stay empty this summer.  They can imagine the devastation this is going to cause our smallest customers, but hope that a bit more variety in the packaged candy department will help.

Enjoy the great summer weekend ahead!

To say this week has been a little nutty would be an understatement I think. We are steadily getting boats launched and the store has been very busy for this time of year. Apparently the hot weather has warmed the lake up quickly and we are seeing lots of people out enjoying the sandbar and watersports already too!

This weekend, we welcome back Nikola and Kendra, as well as our newest addition to the crew here, Natasha, who we look forward to getting to know and working with. We are open from 9-4 every day, and will continue with one family at a time in the store. If you would like curbside pickup, please give us a call and we can make those arrangements with you.

Burn Permits can now be completed online, and are no longer available here. Please remember to continue calling in before and after each burn, and only have fires when it is safe to do so.

If anyone is looking for a raft, one of our customers on Pencil Lake has one that he has offered free to a good home. If you are interested, please let us know.

We are continuing to send out weekly e-blasts and have been doing so since early April.  If you have not received any emails from us and would like to, you can sign up here.

Have a great weekend, don’t let the mosquitos carry you away!
