Sturgeon Point Shinny

Well, it looks like it might be a green Christmas this year in Sturgeon Point.  That also means no skating on the lake.

Fortunately, the annual Sturgeon Point Shinny is happening again!

Here are the dates, times, & places:

Wednesday Dec 28: 2-4 PM – Bobcaygeon Arena
Thursday Dec 29:  3-5 PM – Fenelon Falls Arena
Friday Dec 30: 3-5 PM – 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.

Please share them with anyone you think that might be interested in joining in the fun and games.

This a great deal, just $20 for families $10 for singles / day.

Having seen the pace of play in years gone by, we recommend the use helmets for one and all. Trust me you won’t be the only one out there sporting protection.

See you on the ice.

Special thanks goes out to Larry Thomas who has been instrumental in the organization of this fun event each year.

Updated Village Maps

This year we’ve released an updated version of the Sturgeon Point Village Map. This map includes all of the residents’ names, and is a very useful map when trying to identify who lives where within our community. This is not only useful for relative newcomers, but also for those with long generation-scale roots at the Point.

We’ve stepped it up a bit this year by involving the Fleming College Geomatics Institute in the creation of the updated map. With the help of their expertise, we’ve extended the map beyond the traditional boundary of the Village to include all of Sandy Point Road. The new map is in colour, and it is printed on semi-glossy paper at a 18: x 24 format. This map looks terrific and is quite easy to read.

We have a sufficient number of maps to provide one for every house and cottage on the Point. The printing cost at the larger colour format was not insignificant, and so the distribution of the maps will be limited to households with at least one SPA member. Once you sign up or renew your membership for 2011, you can receive a map for you home or cottage.
