$5.00 per hand, cash prizes – There are 5 stops around the lake. Look for the docks with the large numbered signs. They appear in order following the normal traffic flow. Proceed around the lake picking up a card, per hand (making one trip around the lake due to time constraints and to not interfere with the boat parade). New this year – Wild Card/Mulligan - for an extra fee, you can purchase a wild card/Mulligan per hand. More details will be provided when you sign up.
If you have questions as you go, you can ask at the hosting docks.
7:00 Boat Parade
Patriotic boat, canoe, kayak, anything that floats parade begins. Fabulous prizes to the winners.
Previous categories were Most Patriotic, Most Creative, Funniest – Judging takes place at Jeff and Melanee Crist’s dock (located on the north side of the lake close to the dam. Look for their sign!
Dusk – Fireworks from the Dam
Reminder: Dam access will be closed to traffic beginning at 7:00 pm for set up.
If you watch the fireworks from the water, your watercraft of choice (boat, kayak, canoe, paddleboard, paddleboat, etc…) MUST have front and rear lights for everyone’s safety.
All water traffic must stay a safe distance from the dam for obvious safety reasons. Please visualize a line between Bill & Gloria Wuthrich’s and Bob Basham & Jane Kieler’s boat docks.
