May 3rd Ice Report…

General Information Comments Off on May 3rd Ice Report…

Last Wednesday, the ice was completely covering the lake. By 5pm Sunday much of the ice had melted and blown north leaving everything south of Thode fully exposed. We anticipate the ice to continue its very rapid melt and be off the lake for the start of Eb’s Sunset Series this Wednesday, May 6. Stay posted for an update Tuesday evening by email.

FYI – Ice on the Lake

John Barry Writes:

FYI – I did a trip to the lake today and am reporting lots of ice present.  There is a 6-8ft melted rim around the lake and the rest is still very frozen and showing no signs of cracks or breaks in the snow pack.  I see standing water over about 5 to 10 % of the surface.  I would bet there will be lots on opening day.

Thanks for the Work Party help!

General Information Comments Off on Thanks for the Work Party help!

It was a light turn out on Saturday for the work party, but some of the main jobs did get done. Thanks mostly to Warren White, our Harbor Master, with help from Brian McSheffrey (our Secretary) and member Darcy Rousell for getting boats moved and the dock pulled out of the water. Not to mention the part where they disassembled and reassembled it in the correct orientation for next season! Otherwise Warren wants to remind everyone to store your boats properly for the winter so no frost or wind damage occurs. Also make sure to clearly mark all masts stored in the club house and please use a small label to indicate your locker!

Sunday Afternoon Sailing at BSSC!

General Information No Comments »

Summer is so short and what better way to really enjoy it than going for a sail on Sunday afternoons!  Join other club members at Noon every Sunday.  Rig your boat up and hit the water for a regular afternoon of sun and fun in the great outdoors.  Bring you family and friends and something to BBQ too!  If you are concerned about safety when sailing alone from the club, this is your chance to sail knowing that someone is watching and there to help you should the need arise.

First Sunday Sail will be July 13th and every subsequent Sunday thereafter through until the end of August.
