The emphasis shifts on Sunday, June 18 (same times) to the kids and their parents.

We expect 300+ bodies to appear that weekend.  Club members, and friends, can do their part by bringing a car top size boat with oars or electric motor (no gasoline outboards) and, to really enjoy the day, stay to captain the boat with our clients.
