  • UPCOMING LAKE ACTIVITIES - from the LLL Membership Committee:
    We have another fun opportunity to get together (in small groups and socially distanced). Please join us for the LLLCA First Annual CornHole Tournament! The tournament will be held this coming Saturday, August 8th (rain date August 9th) across from Paul and Anne Dunn's camp, #268. They have graciously offered us the use of their "Tennis Court".

    Here are some of the details; info regarding time slots will be provided when you sign up:

    • Teams of 2 are required, but if you don't have a partner we can provide you with one!

    • Two teams will be given a specific time to play and will be allotted 30 minutes to complete their match. A single elimination ladder bracket will be created once all teams have signed up.

    • Masks are not required, but please wear yours if you are more comfortable. Hand sanitizer is available during tournament play.

    • If you have cornhole bags from your personal set, please bring them and use them. We will provide a set of bags if you let us know when you sign up. Each team will receive their own set and we will not share bags during the tournament.

    • Skill levels vary, so no problem if you haven't played before! We'll have a set of rules available and even give you time to practice on Friday. If you need to pick up bags for practice please let us know when you sign up.

    • Scoring and other specific rules will be provided to participants and will be posted at the tournament field.

    A trophy will be awarded to the winning team!!

Bring your favorite beverage and be prepared to paddle, chat and float around the lake.

  • Tick-borne Diseases in the Adirondacks? For years entomologists and other researches did not consider Lyme and other tick-borne diseases to be a threat in the Adirondacks--many thought northern NY was outside the range of the blacklegged tick. This is changing, as infected ticks and small mammals have been found in most northern NY counties. Please take all the tick precautions at camp you would take at home. Check for ticks every day, and have a happy and healthy Summer!
