Sunset Cruise – Sunday, July 5th (7:30 pm)
Our very first sunset cruise was a success! We cruised around the lake until the sunset and enjoyed some great beer and wine choices. Come out this Sunday, July 5th and spend time with family and friends on our Sunset Beer and Wine Cruise. This fun event will run from 7:30 pm until about 8:45 pm. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend the cruise. Please sign up at the Concierge desk, as space is limited. You will be given a complimentary drink, and assortments of beer and wine will also be available for purchase on the boat. The cost is $15 per person.
Cardboard Regatta – Sunday, July 5th (2:00 pm)
Do you have what it takes to build your own boat and race it to the finish line? Come prove it on Friday, July 5th! We’ll be using only cardboard, plastic jugs, and duct tape, along with 3 other supplies of your own (items cannot be larger than a foot apiece). Each team will be supplied with cardboard, a roll of duct tape, four jugs, a life jacket, and a paddle. We will start on the peninsula, where teams will have 30 minutes to build their own boat masterpieces. From there, teams will proceed to the boat dock to start the race to the beach, where the winners will be crowned. Teams can be no larger than 4 people and only one team member can race the boat. Teams can sign up through the Concierge desk or by emailing Activities. The cost is $35 a team and winners will be crowned for the most creative boat and for the first team to cross the finish line.
