On Sunday there is a Children's Variety show. Apparently in years past this ran concurrently with the horseshoe tournament. This year the variety show will be held after the horseshoe tournament. On Sunday.
Which leads me to my next point. The horseshoe tournament is on Sunday, NOT Saturday as I have previously posted. I'll have to go through my emails and correct the information I sent out. Oops.
Also, we have had a few cancellations and we have also added 7 more unserviced sites. So if you are interested in camping with us next weekend or you know someone who is, then give us a call. (902) 644-2654.
And to recap the activities next weekend.
Friday night - 7:30 pm - Bingo
Saturday - There is no bingo this afternoon.
- 7:00 PM - Adult Variety Show
Sunday - 10:00 am - Horseshoe Tournament
- BBQ Hot Dogs
- Childrens Events
- Fireworks at dusk
And if you are still reading, The Kevin Beanland band is playing tomorrow night (29th) in the Shelter. So come on out and listen to some music.

Here are some suggestions to prepare your trailer before you leave on Sunday.
- If you have anything important in your trailer, take it with you.
- Make sure your awning is rolled up.
- Make sure that anything that can be blown away is secured to your deck or put inside.
- In case of a power outage, if there is anything in your fridge or freezer that you don't want to lose, take it with you.
- If you are here during or shortly after the hurricane, make sure to boil the campground water for one minute before drinking or brushing your teeth.
If anyone has any additional tips they'd like to add, feel free to do so in the comments.
If you would like to share your camping during Juan stories, or any other hurricane, I'd like to read them too.

Here are some pics.

The ladies from the stitch and bitch showing off their wonderful quilts and afghans. They were even throwing candy to the crowd. No wonder they took first place.
Here are a couple of kids dressed up. One is dressed as a mexican, and I didn't catch what the other kid was dressed up as.
Some kids joined in the parade once it got under way.
Ah yes. Our second place winner. He was the wild thing. He got a big roar from the crowd.
That was our parade this year.

This article is posted in the Chronicle Herald today.
BRAMPTON, Ont. — Two young boys were rushed to hospital in critical
condition Wednesday after seemingly harmless overcast skies flared abruptly and
sent a lightning bolt crashing into a Toronto-area soccer field.
The mother of one of the boys, ages 4 and 6, was in stable condition following the
lightning strike in Brampton, Ont., some 45 kilometres northwest of
As part of that article there is some information and facts.
Here they are:
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
•Lightning is attracted to tall, isolated objects like trees.
•Metal does not attract lightning, but is a prime conductor, as is water.
•Two-thirds of all lightning strikes occur in June, July and August; most occur in the afternoon.
•The average lightning flash packs enough power to light a 100-watt light bulb for more than three months.
•A large proportion of lightning deaths occur in, on or near open water. Many people also die sheltering under trees.
•Nowhere outside is safe from lightning.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
•Heed the warning: "When thunder roars, go indoors!"
•Take shelter in a substantial building or fully enclosed, metal-topped vehicle. Avoid small structures such as beach cabanas or tents.
•When inside your home or other building, avoid using a corded telephone, except for emergencies. Cordless phones are safe.
•Avoid electrical appliances and plumbing. Don’t wash dishes or take a bath or shower.
•Practise the 30-30 Rule: When you see lightning, count until you hear thunder. If it’s 30 seconds or less, the storm is within 10 kilometres and dangerous. Seek immediate shelter. Wait 30 minutes after the lightning has stopped before going outside.
