Welcome to the 2014 season!

2013 was yet another great year for all of us who enjoy the Snip. The fish and the weather both cooperated quite well, and some new fishermen, hikers, and nature lovers found a great place to spend some of their valued outdoors time.

All of the proceeds collected help purchase trophies and food for the derbies and also help pay for general upkeep of the boathouse and the surrounding grounds. Membership is not required for adult and kids derbies.

Saturday, April the 5th, is the community clean-up day at 9 AM. It’s always a great time, and although we call it clean-up day, there’s usually not too much trash to clean up. It’s a chance to meet with friends, drink coffee and eat doughnuts. The alternative day in the event that it rains will be April the 12th at 9:00.  All SLA family and friends are welcome.

Wednesday, April 16th is boat check-in day. Boats are loaded onto the racks at 6 am sharp.

Thank you and I wish you tight lines in 2014!

Shawn LaForest, SLA President
