This is our actual logo on a button for trading at festivals and events.  We did not get on the water until after the month of June.  We lost the whole month.  Therefore, we did not consider that we were ready to paddle in Bridgetown in July.  It was sad, but true.

New season but not yet on the water

We have not been on the water yet, as the water levels at Lake Pisiquid have not risen enough.  There was work on the locks, to keep the water in the lake, this spring and the levels have not risen to the point where the town of Windsor can put the docks in.  Because of this, we probably will not be participating in Clean Annapolis River Project in July, as we will not have paddled enough.   That is sad, as we have been involved with that festival from the beginning, 3 years, ago.  We hope to be on the water on Monday, June 25th.

I realized when I posted the winner of the quilt at this year's bowling fundraiser, that I had not posted last year's winner.   The child's quilt was made and donated by Pearl H. from Greenwich, NS.  The winner was Lucille S. from Gaspereau.

The fundraising bowling, held on Nov 4th was a great time.  Seven teams participated, with food, and laughter shared.  The winning raffle ticket for the queen size quilt (made and donated by Faye S.) was won by Nancy H.

This is a photo of how lovely and clean 'baby' was before the Regatta.  The head is on and the crew members at the back, are putting on the tail.  Both the head and tail, have wooden 'pegs' that go into slots built into the structure of the hull.  The Regatta this year was on the 15th of Oct.   Usually, it is on the Sunday, ( the day) before Thanksgiving,  but this year it was moved to the next weekend.  We paddle before the race, while the 'pumpkin boats' are being put into the water on the Falmouth side of the lake.  The weather was lovely, even though a bit windy.   We moor the boat before the race starts. That was the last paddle of the season.   We are having a bowling fundraiser on Nov 4th, in Windsor.
