Docks went in yesterday and the club is ready for boating season. The water is a little low (and cold) right now with the powers that be bleeding off excess water in Lake Ontario. It is anticipated that navigational buoys will be in soon for the channel leaving the club. As soon as we get everything together for current membership, we will start up the dock bidding process. Watch here and on the club bulletin board for bidding.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the work day. Docks go in this Saturday at 8am. We need as many hands as possible to help move this efficiently!

The cost is $35 per person. Family rates are available. Participants must pre-register by calling 315-600-6306 and must attend both nights to receive a boating safety certificate upon completion of the course. Source
Boating season is right around the corner and it is time to get the club ready. Work day is scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd. We can use all hands on deck to get things in ship shape. There are 3 docks that need rebuilding, there are many fallen branches and regular spring cleaning that needs to be done, so bring your carpenter tools, chain saws and lawn care tools or come by and clean... there is a lot to be done and the more help the better. Docks will follow on April 30th and that is another event that a big turnout makes things much easier. Work starts around 8:00 on both days.
The complete schedule of club events is also attached, if you would like to chair an event or work at one please let us know. If you have an idea for a new event, new ideas are encouraged
