Long Weekend

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Long weekend! We’ll be open as usual this Saturday and Sunday, but closed Monday May 22nd.

Remember all the usual things this weekend:
- only morons drink and drive
- the Lake is wayyy too cold to swim in (and this year, too high)
- sunscreen is your friend; so is bug spray.

Have fun!
