🍦The Ice Out Ice Cream Challenge is On🍦
It's that time of year - the annual ritual of ice out prediction. Just go to the Catchacoma Marina Facebook Page by midnight Tuesday, March 17 and tell us which day you expect the ice to go out. Ice Out is declared when a boat can reach every cottage on Catchacoma Lake. Note: for those of you on smaller neighbouring lakes it usually goes out sooner. If you guess right you can walk right up to the marina store anytime between Canada Day and Labour Day and request 7 ice cream cones…for free. The winners will be announced on Facebook the day of or the day after Ice Out Day. This year real estate agent and Catchacoma cottager Dave Curtis will sponsor 7 winners (that's 7 for 7) - the marina will put in for the remainder. So join in the fun and enter your prediction by midnight, March 17.
We're seeking someone to do boat detailing/maintenance and we're hiring students for summer positions.
