The club’s in top shape; the weather is finally behaving like summer; time to get out there and enjoy the boats and the river.
Well, July is but we’re not sure about summer weather.
No matter – most of the boats are now on the beach and the plans are to set up the beach deck and floating docks this weekend.
It certainly has been an exceptional spring due to very high water levels but it’s finally going down and we’re going to look at storing some of the Albacores on the beach.
Thanks to the volunteers who came out to set up ramps, we’ve been able to move the boats down to and up from the river, for the lessons, while we wait for the water levels to go down. It’s great to be on the water again and the forecast is finally (!) for warm temperatures.
Today, our amazing crew of volunteer members changed the boat storage warehouse-looking clubhouse back into a vibrant sailing club, including giving us back our ‘cottage in the city’, in less than one day!
Next – Open House on April 29!
Saturday April 22nd all hands are called to be ‘on deck’ and get the season started. Coffee, muffins, lunch and libations provided. See you there!
(To quote a famous Social Director) 🙂
Yes, April is finally here along with some real snow-melting temperatures.
It won’t be long now before we’re out there getting the Site in ship-shape condition!
Lots of work to be done so please step forward to help out.
While the KSC Site is sleeping under a blanket of snow, consider enjoying the trails at the other end of Sheila McKee Park. They’re great for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
The club and site are well-used this time of year. Water levels are down and the dock has been moved further out. The clubhouse and deck were in good shape for a well-attended Sail Past Day and BBQ (even though the weather didn’t cooperate). Propane delivery arrived in the nick of time.
Continue enjoying your cottage in the city 🙂
The club was a popular place to be on Father’s Day – lots of families with children playing in the water, going to the swim dock, eating cake on the deck and of course, sailing.
Now, about getting those marshmallows to the campfire…
Thanks go to the many members who are working behind the scenes to keep the Site in very nice shape.
