SLSC Newsletter: Week 6 2011

This weekend we hosted the Mid-Ontario regatta for 420’s and Lasers. We had over 150 sailors race here this weekend! Thanks to all the volunteers for making this great regatta possible! We’re looking forward to another busy week at Sailing Club!

Water Advisory

A brief word of caution, you may have heard that there is a water quality warning out for Sturgeon Lake and other lakes nearby, and we will be monitoring the situation closely.  In the meantime we will be avoiding swimming.

Dances and Fun Nights

 This Tuesday we will be having a fun night but we will be keeping you in suspense!!  Stay tuned for updates from the Silvers.  It will run from 6:30 – 8:30 and will cost a dollar to attend.

This Friday will be the Boy/Girl Dance!!  Root through your brother’s or sister’s closet and change things up for a night!  The dance runs from 7-9pm.  It is $1 per person, $1 for pop and 25 cents for freezies.  If you have any questions feel free to ask the Silvers.  See you there!

Fun Day and Pizza Lunch

Why wouldn’t the shrimp share his treasure?  Because he was a little shellfish! This Wednesday is Treasure Hunt Day!!  Dress up like Indiana Jones or any cool explorer to show your spirit and gain points for Sugar Bowl!

 This Wednesday is also Pizza Lunch! Two slices of pizza, lemonade and an ice cream sandwich are $7.50. Pizza arrives at 12:30 and pick up is at 1.  You can pay Leslie at registration or bring money Wednesday morning.


Wednesday Night Races

We had another great turnout at last week’s Wednesday night races! Come down to the club this Wednesday at 6:30 to rig, and we will assign everyone a boat to sail in. After the races stay for a bonfire and reward your racing with some smores!  Sugar bowl points are awarded to everyone who comes out!


Adult Clinics

 This summer SLSC is holding its first ever adult sailing clinics!  Ever wonder what we’re teaching your kids every morning?  Come out to our second adult clinic and find out!  These clinics are open to anyone 17 and older who are keen to test out their sea legs.  The second clinic will happen on Saturday August 13th from 1-4pm (this weekend!) and will cost $75 per person. You can sign up with Leslie Thomas, Kate Thomas or Ellen Lourie. Hope to see you there!


Things to Bring

As always we’re promoting a waste-free sailing club,so we encourage all sailors to bring their own reusable water bottle to club. We have a water cooler up stairs that we will be sure is always full for sailors to fill their water bottles up with. Other things that are important to bring everyday are a PFD,  closed toed shoes,  a change of clothes,  weather appropriate gear (a little rain doesn’t keep us from sailing!),  a towel,  sunscreen,  a hat and a snack.

Happy Sailing!

Kate & Ellen 🙂
