Call for beds for sailors

This year out very own Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club (SLSC) has been selected to host the Canadian Laser Masters Championships on July 23 to 25. The club obviously has a tremendous reputation and continues to raise the bar by attracting such high level competitions year after year.

One of the reasons for this success is that each and every sailing competion is a community effort, and every year Sturgeon Point has welcomed the participants of Provincial and National level competitions by hosting them within our small community. This was often done by simply providing a welcoming smile and a part of a yard for young sailors to set up tents.

This year, because the Masters competion involves mature sailors from 35 to 75(!) years of age, we are looking more for beds rather than outdoor space to pitch a tent. No meals will need to be provided – sailors will be fed communally at the sailing club and elsewhere. Sailors will also provide their own bedding. 

If you think you can provide a bed or two for some sailors, please contact the SLSC at [email protected] . They will be thrilled to hear from you. The club asks that you do so before June 15th so that they can assess the number of beds that will be available.

Spring Cleanup Bee – Saturday May 22nd, 10:00 a.m.

This is a reminder that on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. we’ll be having a spring cleanup bee to spruce up the public areas around the Point. We’ll meet at the Park and break into teams. Bring your rake, brooms, shovels, garbage and recycling bags and anything else you think would be helpful. Light refreshments will be provided.
