It’s not every day the Telus Skins game comes to our neck of the woods! Jeffrey Palmer, the Director of Golf from Raven Golf Club at Lora Bay will be keeping us up to date on things so check back from time to time for an update. In the meantime, enjoy the overview in this e-newsletter.

Even though it seems like a long time between now and the Skins game June 17th – 19th... think of all your golfing buddies that would like to be here for this exciting event. You may want to suggest that they give Stu at the Blue Mountain Lodge a call at 705.444.0424 to reserve a room or two well in advance. If they are looking for accommodations that are more Chalet style... Stu has connections there too. Tri-W Realty Inc. can also help you with upscale chalet rentals.

There are a couple of really great events coming up this weekend worth catching. The Appleton Jamaica Liquid Launch at Blue Mountain is absolutely hilarious. Kudos to anyone who attempts the amazing feat of skiing or boarding across open water. Made even better by some of the most outrageous costumes. For details check our Events Calendar.

Cabane a Sucre is a long-standing Quebecois tradition celebrating the sugaring off of maple trees. Café Chartreuse brings the tradition to Collingwood every spring with a dinner that is steeped with tradition and flavour. Check out the menu for dates and times and call 705.444.0099 to reserve your space today. This is a very entertaining evening with great food and live music.
