Our Fishing Tournament on Monday produced some star anglers, all from New York state! Austin from Long Island and Billy from West Chester reeled in one fish apiece, with Billy’s taking the honor for Smallest Fish. Aurora from Long Island and Matt from Syracuse each caught two fish, and Matt’s was the Biggest Catch of the day. Well done, fishermen and fishergals!
A slideshow of this week’s candid images by Ann-Marie will be running this evening in the Champlain Lounge. Our last Family Portrait Special is available tomorrow morning at the Wilderneath Garden. Please sign up with the concierge by this evening. Private Portrait Sessions are still available this week.
What BHC summer scrapbook would be complete without a picture of our famous primary colored Adirondack Chairs? Those chairs have undoubtedly made their way into at least a few of your pictures, and if you have a good one, enter it into the BHC Chair Photo Contest. The prize is—what else—a chair ornament and a 4” BHC Adirondack Chair. Log into Facebook www.facebook.com/basinharbor to enter!
The golf course is in excellent shape, so put some greens into your daily diet! We have something to suit every schedule, whether you have enough time for seeing all 18 holes, playing 9 of ‘em, or just visiting the driving range for a bit. Private lessons with PGA Professional Paul Meunier are available, as well, catering to all skill levels from beginner to pro! Call extension 899. Don’t miss our August Sales at the Golf Shop! You might even putt a bigger discount! Come see how. Look for great Summer Savings at all of our retail stores!
Do you like to keep yourself active on vacation? Look no further than the Basin Harbor grounds themselves to work off those extra desserts at the Ranger Room! Meet our fitness guru Scott at the Wellness Center at 7am tomorrow morning for “Boot Camp”, a fast-paced series of events that will take you all around BHC. If you’re itching to stretch those legs on a mountaintop, join Abbey tomorrow morning after breakfast for a good old-fashioned upward stroll to nearby Buck Mountain. The hike, which is just a couple of miles round trip, will get that blood flowing and reward you with a lovely view over the Champlain Valley! We will carpool to the trailhead, and be back before lunch. Sign up in advance with the concierge.
BHC’s Got Talent! We know you have something special, so why not share it? Sign up with the Rec Staff and meet in the MDR for Talent Show Practice. Our pianist Melissa is ready to accompany you Friday night at the Talent Show.
