Fall Clean-up taking place this Saturday!
We will start at 9:00am sharp! There is work for everyone along with a lot of socializing! And the BBQ tops off the morning !
As always, we will be moving boats, sails and equipment to their winter resting spots. And, we will be preparing the house and docks for the long winter. Please come and enjoy the fun!
Last event of the season is the Fall Clean-up
In Door County over Labor Day Weekend (count yourselves lucky!)? Come out and join fellow members on Saturday, August 31st from 9am to noon in our traditional “Fall Cleanup.” This time-honored and rewarding tradition involves members working together to put away boats and equipment, securing the dock, and organizing the clubhouse.
We have jobs for all ages. Members should come ready to work together and then celebrate with a lunch time BBQ (brats, dogs and chips are provided along with lemonade and cookies). We’re hoping to get 50 volunteers to make for manageable work.
You won’t want to miss out on this last event of the season! We will plan to start at 9:00am sharp.
