Another summer of terrific weather – just perfect for our annual regatta. Held at Nagaya Beach on
Saturday August 18th, there was a great turnout of cottagers and locals from all around Kahshe Lake.
This was truly an all ages event with solid participation from kids of all ages and even the older folks
partook in the swim races and other water events. A big hit this year were the land races: running,
sack, three-legged as well as the endurance event: the hula hoop content. The events for the younger
kids proved to be very popular: a sandcastle building contest, fish pond game, and minnow races.
The art contest continues to captivate the attention of most kids and the quality of their work made
judging very difficult. The water balloon toss and canoe races were well attended and pitted BFFs
and family teams against each other in friendly competition. The final events, the tug-of-war and
cardboard box boat competition, capped off this year’s regatta. Ribbons were awarded for each
event and at the end there was buckets of candy for the kids to fill up their own take-home bag.
A good time was had by all! See you next year. Bring your cottage neightburs and friends too!
