Let's have a nice relaxing afternoon out on the beautiful Okanagan Lake. (Minimum 6, Maximum 10, for members only.) We will cruise for awhile and then find a nice spot to put the anchor down. Drinking alcohol on a boat while cruising is now illegal. Please bring a water bottle thermos for your drinks, no beer or cooler cans, and no wine glasses allowed.
There is no charge for the cruise, but there is a $29. contribution for gas. Payment must be made by e-transfer to [masked]. Security question: What kind of boat do you have? Answer: pontoon. PLEASE HELP ME OUT BY INCLUDING THE DATE YOU ARE PAYING FOR!!! Otherwise I have to check all the cruise dates to find which one you are on, which is time consuming.
The event will show that it is FULL, but unless there are 9 people signed up, it is not. When you sign up to go, everyone goes on a waitlist, this does NOT mean you are confirmed to go! Someone who signs up after you but pays before you, will be confirmed first. Once you have paid, I will add you to the event as confirmed. (Your yearly dues must also be paid.)
There is a portapotty on board in a curtained off area, which we can put up when we have the anchor down.
Only SMALL BAGS WILL BE ALLOWED ON BOARD, there is very little storage space and having bags all over the floor makes it difficult to move around and is a safety hazard. Ladies, you do not need to bring a big purse, you will not be needing make-up, etc. on a 3 hour cruise. :-) Larger bags will have to be left in the dock box on the dock. PLEASE be considerate of everyone else and bring as small of a bag as you can.
Meet at 12:30pm at the benches by the BACK DOOR (lakeside) of the Yacht Club. It will be your responsibility to find the group. PLEASE DON’T BE LATE! If you are late, you will forfeit your ticket as we cannot make everyone else wait for those that are late. PLEASE DO NOT CALL and ask us to wait for you if you are late, you will be holding up ten people and it causes a lot of problems, as then we will have to come in later, and many people only pay for 4 hours of parking. If you are late, you will have to forfeit your ticket. Plan to LEAVE EARLY and get there on time! THE CRUISE IS FROM 1-4PM, but you have to be there at 12:30pm. Please do not make plans to be somewhere at 4pm or shortly after, as sometimes the cruises are late getting in, we don't always get in on time.
(Everyone will have to sign a waiver before heading out, which is standard procedure for any type of activity like this.) Sorry, no transfers or refunds. You MUST check this website at 10am on day of departure, if heavy rain or strong winds are forecast, the date will be cancelled, and you can choose another date. When you book a cruise, you are taking a chance on the weather, you cannot expect it to be perfect so if there are only possible rain showers predicted, it will go ahead. I cannot cancel every cruise because there is a LOW chance of rain expected. It is colder on the lake than on land, (especially if it is windy), so make sure you dress in layers and bring a warm sweater or jacket.
I look forward to a wonderful afternoon on our beautiful lake with you!
Please make sure you have updates from our group checked on your profile, so you receive important updates, like date or time changes, etc. If you miss an event because you don't receive updates, that is your responsibility.
