September 12 Day Trip Info

September 12th day trip - originally planned for Tube Lake but ... Unfortunately Waterfalls Lodge's dining room is not open, so dinner will not be an option, however, they do offer use of the only boat launch on Tube Lake, parking, and use of their washrooms... for a cost of $5 / kayak launched. An alternative option would be to drive a little further north of the lodge and launch on Kecil Lake at a public launch. It is a bit more remote, some pretty scenery. It does link with Tube Lake but I think that would make for a long day. let Sirje know by Wednesday, Sept. 9th and indicate which option you prefer. (email: meet at the HWY 108 turn off at 9:30 am.

Basswood Day Trip details - Saturday August 29

  From Ray our Tripping Director:       The Basswood day trip is on for this Saturday.  Meet at 10:00 at the round barn in Sowerby where we had stored the canoes.  We still need to confirm where we will start from; which will be either Melwel Lodge or Bill Phillips camp.  Supper at the lodge is sounding unlikely, but may be possible.  Covid protocols will be in place.     If you are interested, please contact Ray at   or      Thank you
