Pinawa

Sunday, July 21 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

Join us in Pinawa for their 50th Anniversary celebration! Take a ride in the Amphicar to contribute to the charity event for Parkinson’s Disease and visit the first ever Lund Mania Tournament, a fishing contest of epic proportions.

West_Hawk_Square

Westhawk

Westhawk

Saturday, July 27 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

We plan to visit Westhawk Lake on Saturday, July 27.  The set-up at Westhawk makes it one of our favourite locations – right on the beach, but still able to use the boat launch.  We had a great day at Westhawk in 2012, and look forward to being back in 2013!

Falcon_lake_amphicar

Falcon Lake

Falcon Lake

Sunday, July 28 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

In 2012, our visit to Falcon Lake was unfortunately rained out.  That will make it extra special to be back in 2013.  In Falcon, we plan to launch directly off of the main beach (on the south end, near where the boats are).   The owner of the only other Amphicar in Manitoba keeps his at Falcon Lake, so it is possible that we will have two cars out at this event!

Gimli

Gimli

Sunday, August 4 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

Another favourite location – Gimli was our busiest event in 2012 – it was absolutely crazy!  My mom is Icelandic (her maiden name is Danielson), so we love spending time in Gimli and enjoying the water.  This will be a great event – don’t miss it!

Corn-and-Apple-Morden

Morden

Morden

Saturday, August 24 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

Another classic location where we can drive in and out directly off of Colert Beach.  Last year, we raised over $600 at this stop alone – thanks to all of our supporters in Morden!   Please join us for a “swim” and then head over to the Corn & Apple Festival for some great food and entertainment.

Clearlake_500x500

Clear Lake

Clear Lake

Saturday, August 31 from 12:00 noon – 4:00pm

Having spent many summers at Clear Lake, this is also a very special date on the calendar.  We will be set up at the main boat launch, the same as 2012.  It is an ideal spot even if it can get a little bit rough on the lake (a few people got a little bit wet last year – and the ones that didn’t were disappointed!).   Clear Lake was our second busiest event in 2012, so we are hoping that we can set a record in 2013!
