It’s that time of year again when the weather has changed and we all begin to pull our boats off the lake for winter storage.
A reminder of winter storage rules as defined by SPBHA bylaws: Winter storage of boats, trailers, or other recreational vehicles is not allowed closer to the road than the closest point of the residence.
The JAC has removed the swim raft and buoys and soon to remove the boat launch dock. Picnic tables will be stacked soon and the portable toilet has already been picked up for the year.
Please remove all items from the kayak/canoe rack as winter storage of personal property is not permitted at the park. All pontoon slips must remove their mooring poles and access docks from the park as those are personal property and not to be stored at the park.
The JAC thanks you for another great summer at our park access!
The JAC would like to thank all that participated, attended and donated to the park at the 2021 chili cookoff and cornhole tournament! The weather was beautiful and the event went off without a hitch. This years event ended up having 14 Cornhole players and 10 Chilis entered in the cookoff to judge. Congratulations to Mike Donovan & Deb Converse on winning the Cornhole Tournament and Congratulations to Dave Converse for winning the Chili Cookoff!
When: Sunday, September 26th @ 11am
Where: Strawberry Lake Park, 5333 Gallagher Blvd.

Donations to the park will be accepted upon entry to the tournament, $10 per player recommendation. Players will choose their skill level at registration: Advanced or Novice.

Bring your best chili and a serving spoon down to the park in a container that will keep warm. No cost to enter, bowls and plasticware will be provided.
