Posted  June 5, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Please DO NOT Move the Logs

Posted  May 21, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Last night (May 24 weekend Monday) we removed the big fallen tree from The Bride, just after the bridge with handrails.

Posted  May 15, 2013  by  WCC Administrator

Much can be said about the Lake of Bays O-Cup #4, and here is my spiel: I shall begin with the most critical part…the weather. If mother nature could ever have a menopause meltdown, it was today, she was a cold . Wake up, 9am and the usual, have some water do my thing right. […]
