Our own Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club is hosting the 2009 Mid Ontario Championship Regatta this weekend. This is a big event that attracts a large number of participants. Sturgeon Point comes up big to host a few hundred competitors and families in our small community every year the Regatta is held here. You’ll almost certainly notice a few tents and a whole lot of young sailors out and about our community this weekend. You’ll certainly notice an unusually large number of sailboats on the lake – its quite a sight. Let’s hope for fair winds and good weather to help make our visitors feel welcome.

The morning of Monday, August 3rd will see the Village gather again on the beautiful front lawn at Swannanoa for the 171st running of the Sturgeon Point Regatta. There will be running races and lots of other contests and games to challenge the very young to the very old. The action shifts to the Public Beach in the afternoon for the swimming and canoe races. This is always a fun day and a great chance to participate in a Sturgeon Point tradition.
One of the highlights of the Civic Holiday Weekend is going to be the Sturgeon Point Street Dance and Barbeque on Saturday, August 1st. This is your chance to dance on Irene Avenue with all of your friends and neighbours. A real live band will be pumping out the tunes at the Park. Things will get under way at 6 o’clock. There will be Barbeques cooking up burgers and hotdogs. Be there or be square!
