Another scorcher is on the horizon for today, with the Harbor thermostat predicted to reach almost 90 degrees by the afternoon. Look for partly sunny skies and a 20% chance of showers, with a potential thunderstorm in the mix.
Basin Harbor welcomes our friends Mika and David Frechette, here to enjoy some summer excitement from Greenwich, CT. Glad to see you both again!
The results of our weekly Basin Harbor Triathlon are in! Emma Bushman was our Top Youth Female with a new basin harbor record of 19:08. Emma’s brother Charlie Bushman claimed Top Youth Male honors with a time of 19:40. Close behind were Marshall Bushman and Rick Bushman, finishing neck and neck! Our Top Female yesterday was Naomi Sleeper with a time of 21:51 and Top Male was Tom Bushman with a new basin harbor record of 19:10. A special award goes to Basin Harbor’s own Will Cox, our Waterfront bike guru, who set a new employee record! Congratulations to our hearty triathletes!
In other news, Carol McAfee of Baltimore, MD successfully completed her annual swim across Champlain with her bright orange bathing cap, alongside fellow swimmer Penn Griffen of Charleston, SC. The brave souls were accompanied by respective spouses Ralph Arnsdorf and Weezie Griffen in kayaks, and received some cheering on by the group of rowers in a 19th century pilot gig replica. Well done, Carol and Penn! The lake will be waiting for you next year!
Sometimes it’s nice just to sit inside a cool place with a refreshing beverage on a steamy afternoon. The Champlain Lounge might be just the place! 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 air-conditioned Champlain Lounge this afternoon as you gather for a game of cards with the family.
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 and funky band the Would I’s, covering hits from decades past and present. See you there!
