Leech Lake Regatta 2016

LLCA Regatta 2016

As coordinator, my first task is to thank all our volunteers.  Everyone on the executive – Larry, Kim, Hy, Susan and Jerry (who graded the grounds) - assisted.  Then special mention needs to be made to the following: Deborah Burton who helped with the games, Paulette McGuckin who helped to organize the gifts and pitched in everywhere, Mike O’Hara who took charge of the barbeque, Barry Shepherd who judged the 2 photo contests, and Mark Shepherd who was called upon at the event to supervise and accompany the canoe then the kayak races. 

Many thanks for the donations – over $200. - collected at the entrance.  There was a free draw for last year’s unclaimed black berry phone won by a young boy – Ben O. – who was ectastic – “I won, I won” followed by “What is this?”.  Other draw prizes went to Blair Clark for the pirate cruise, Maureen Fitzpatrick for the Santa’s Village passes. Brad Clark won the hockey jersey donated by Tracy Henze.  Winners of the photo contest were Manix Cole and Madison Robertson.

We hired to team to paint faces.  What fun that was – rushing to get painted between games.
We played the same 7 games as in previous years then added the kayak races.  First, second, third and participant ribbons were given out, some with ribbons covering their shirts.  And of course there were the ‘summer games’ gifts for all at the end.  What was really great was seeing children and adults playing together.

Our theme is FUN, FOOD, FRIENDSHIP.  Certainly we achieved this on Regatta Day - Sunday, July 31 with an attendance of close to 100.
