Don’t put away those umbrellas just yet! Today’s high is scheduled in around 77 degrees, with a 40% chance of precipitation and possibly a thunderstorm or two.
The results of our weekly Basin Harbor Triathlon are in! Basin Harbor is proud to bestow the honor for Top Team upon Philip Kensinger, Pete Bechtol, and Will Tortorella with a time of 19:12. Top Females were sisters Claire Thompson and Catherine Lentz, who finished hand-in-hand with a time of 27:08. The Top Male honor belongs to Ted Lentz with a time of 19:22. Our Top Youths yesterday were Sydney Lentz and Billy Thompson. And above all, special recognition for Best Team Name belongs to the Webb sisters, Eliza, Angie, and Electra who competed together as Team Maple Sausage. That hearty breakfast must have really come in handy! We thank all of our participants and our cheerful crowd of onlookers for the support. Congratulations, triathletes! You’ve done Basin Harbor proud.
A special thanks goes out to the Parker and Foster families, especially Duncan, Kiley, Corbett, Grant, and Katlyn for their enthusiastic participation in Nature Center activities this week. We were also excited to have Mac and Cal Bechtol and Zoe Eplee around for nature crafting. Thanks for coming down!
One phrase Basin Harbor never hears is “I’m bored,” and we’d like to keep it that way! If a rainy day strikes again, we’ve got you covered! Not only can you rent board games from the Front Desk, but there are also DVDs and videos to check out. Constantin will be waiting to make you a delicious beverage in the cozy Champlain Lounge this afternoon as you gather for a game of cards with the family.
Of course the Treehouse Wellness Center is always available for fitness fun if you can’t play outside, or you can join Asia today for a Jewelry Class where you’ll be able to choose from tons of beautiful beads and make yourself some fancy accoutrements to go with your dinner eveningwear! Or maybe it’s just a good day for some pampering! See the Concierge to book your gourmet massage, manicure, pedicure, or one of our other lovely spa services for a relaxing treat indoors.
A Photography Ordering Session will be held in the Club Room from 12-2 pm. All candid images from this week will be on sale: 25% off! So, whether you are ordering from candids, our family portraiture specials or a private session, stop by and meet with Ann-Marie to view samples, ask questions and place your orders.
Have you tried out the brand new YOLO boards at the Waterfront this year? Stand-up Paddling has never been more exhilarating, so head on down to see Tom and the gang as soon as the weather breaks, and rent a YOLO today!
Get ready for a Friday night of delight! After watching your favorite friends perform their best talents at the Basin Harbor Talent Show, head to the Red Mill for a few live sets by the super fun indie-rockabilly band Waylon Speed. See you there!
