LCLCA Golf Tournament Success

It was a fantastic day for golf, friends, food and fun. The tournament was so well organized, even the weather cooperated (the weather forecasts are not to be trusted in 2021).

Prizes were awarded for best scored, highest score, closest to the pin and a putting tournament. But, the biggest winner was the Kawartha Food Bank with $423 donated from the fees and individuals.

We do hope this becomes an annual event!

Be Wake Aware – from FOCA

FOCA is very proud to launch the new Be #WakeAware campaign, together with our partners at the Muskoka Lakes Association and Safe Quiet Lakes.

Boaters need to be #WakeAware to ensure ALL lake or river users are able to enjoy the water safely and sustainably. Any wake near shore can cause issues for loons, docks, shorelines, swimmers and other small craft users.
Large wake users are encouraged to take their fun to the middle of large lakes. Avoid narrow, shallow or near-shore areas, and watch behind you to understand your wake impact.

All small powerboat users can help, too, by always reducing speed to 10 km/hr or less within 30m of shore, and by getting up to plane quickly when transitioning from slow to high speed.
We all have a role to play in being #WakeAware.

Do your part: Please visit the campaign webpage, share the link and #WakeAware hashtag on your own social networks, websites and community groups, and circulate this message to everyone you know who loves the waterfront in Ontario: www.BeWakeAware.com

Pandemic Paddle 2021

The Planting Palooza was Pleasant

What a beautiful day. Cottagers paddled to various docks for plant pickup. There were more fun and photos as they planted. It was nice to get out and see cottage neighbours (physically distanced, of course) once again.

Looking forward to seeing the results as we paddle around the lake this summer and in years to come.

Reminder to send photos to info@looncalllake.ca by June 26th, for the draw on June 27th.
