The mercury is likely to reach 80 degrees today, with some very possible thundershowers involved. Chance for precipitation is 60%.
Basin Harbor welcomes our friends Ralph & Laura Meier of Sudbury, MA for the weekend, as well as Ms. Lizzie Flynn from Weston, MA. Mr. & Mrs. Martin Durkin and the gang from McDonald, PA are here for some summer fun, and we’re delighted to see them again! We also welcome the Munson Family as they gather from New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont for a lovely few days of togetherness at The Harbor. Welcome back!
The results of our weekly Basin Harbor Triathlon are in! Yesterday’s events brought in 31 participants, and just as many spectators cheering from the sidelines. Honors for Top Female and Top Male, respectively, belonged to Mia Halfman and Michael Diamond. Oliver and Spencer Cookson headed up the Top 2-Person Team, while our Top 3-Person Team consisted of Mark Winter, Kieran Knightly, and Michael Nall. Completing all three events apiece, our Top Youth Finishers were the lovely Amelia Fox, age 8, and Annie O’Shea, who is 9 years old. Nicely done, gals! And a hearty congratulations to ALL of our mighty Triathletes!
Would you like to be famous Basin Harborites? We want to see how much fun you and your family are having this summer, and we’d love to share the snapshots from your BHC vacation! Get yourselves on Facebook, our website, and blog by spending a day with a BHC photo card. Grab one from the front desk this morning, put it in your camera, and let the magic unfold. Then bring it back to us at the end of the day, and let the magic unfold to the rest of the world! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
In case we encounter some weather not terribly conducive to lake-lounging, The Champlain Lounge might be just the place to gather! 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 comfy 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 Salad Days, covering hits from decades past and present. See you there!
