Sturgeon Point Annual Skate & Shinny is back again this Holiday Season!

Thank you to Larry Thomas for organizing the Annual Skate & Shinny again this year!

Better sharpen your skates, tape your sticks, find a helmet and stock up on Advil, it’s official, the shinny/skating times are booked!

Here are the confirmed times and venues. Lock them in your calendars!

  •    December 27 3-5PM : Fenelon Falls Arena
  •    December 29 11AM-1PM:  Bobcaygeon Arena (please note, this is a colder arena, so put on your wollies!)
  •    December 30 3-5PM: Fenelon Falls Arena

For those of you who haven’t participated before, we use 2/3′s of the rink for shinny and 1/3 for recreational skaters, little ones and UN observers. We play 5 minute periods split between younger skaters (roughly 12 and under) and the rest of the motley crew. This keep the little ones out of harms way and the old guys get a break every five minutes to catch their breath.

Contributions to the cause are as follows : $20 / family and $10 / single / day. Funds can given to me or my “agent” in my absence.

Feel free to share this with family and friends.

Please “join” on our Facebook page if you are going to attend!

Looking forward to seeing you all over the holidays.

(Please not that these are not SPA events, just the gathering of friends and family on the ice.)

Open houses a chance to guide plans for your lake


These open houses are organized by Kawartha Conservation



You are invited to attend one of five open houses on lake management plans being developed for Balsam, Cameron, Pigeon, and Sturgeon lakes.  

The plans involve developing and implementing best practices for restoring and protecting the health and sustainability of your lake, and dealing with various issues such as aquatic plants, contaminated runoff, development pressures, E.coli, sediments, invasive species, and others. 

Each plan is in a different stage of development, and will be completed in upcoming years, and then implemented following completion. 

  • STURGEON LAKE MANAGEMENT PLAN (2014)Review and provide comments on an early draft of the plan
  •  BALSAM & CAMERON LAKE MANAGEMENT PLAN (2015)Get an update and provide input on plan development
  •  PIGEON LAKE MANAGEMENT PLAN (2016)Identify the issues to be addressed in the plan, including impacts to lake health and your enjoyment of the lake

Each open house is from 7 to 9 p.m., and will include information about each of the plans, and an opportunity to comment. There will also be special guest presentations on various topics, starting at 7:00 p.m. Check our website for details.
