Water-Quality Testing Volunteer Needed
LOBA's 2018 water-quality sampling program is getting underway and ... we need ONE MORE new recruit! The commitment is quite manageable this year with only three testing dates: Monday July 2, Monday August 6, and Friday August 31. The time required to sample each date varies with the number and location of sites assigned, but plan on 2 hours per sampling date. Training will be scheduled at a convenient time on June 30 or July 1.

IF you have a motorboat, time availability on those dates (sampling must be done between
8 and 10 a.m.) and are looking for a great reason to spend a couple of hours out on the lake on a lovely summer morning ... let us know!

Glenn will be leaving at 8:30 a.m. from the
Narrows at 1039 Bayview Drive and will swim with four support kayaks from Friends of the Muskoka Watershed, including Dr. Norman Yan. They will head into Trading Bay and meet support
swimmers 3 km from Dorset.
They will all swim and kayak into Dorset and land at the bridge at 10:30. The S.S. Bigwin Museum will be open to used as a change area and Dr. Yan will do a presentation on  their exhibit.
At 11:15 they will head over to Trading Bay Pub for lunch or snacks. They are hoping lots of spectators meet them on arrival and everyone is welcome to come to the Pub for a CANADA Day CELEBRATION. 

Keep up the Great Work Glenn!!
