July 4th Celebrations

What a day July 4th was!!  We teamed up with our neighboring resorts, White Wing Resort and Artilla Cove Resort, to throw a great big July 4th celebration!


The celebrations began in the afternoon when guests from all three resorts had the option to sign up for our Washers and Corn Hole Tournaments.  We had an absolutely fantastic turnout!  Approximately 60- 70  people signed up and were ready and eager to get the games started.  All players chipped in two dollars per person and the winners were all set to take all!  We put everyones names into a hat and drew them out to form the teams.  This made it extra fun as no one knew who their partners would be!  We were all on schedule for games starting at 4pm however, as 4pm approached so did the rain.   Guests were eager to play and so we got the games underway, despite the rain.  Watching the guests play was so much fun!  There were smiles and laughter in every direction I looked.  We ended up awarding a first and second prize for both games and this prize was the cash money everyone had used as an entry fee.


After our Washers and Corn hole tournaments, everyone joined us for a Pot Luck Dinner.  The owners of the three resorts provided all the hamburgers, hot dogs and beer and everyone brought a side.  The beer was cold, the food was delish and I’m pretty sure everyone left with full bellies.  During the tournaments and dinner, we also had some live music for everyone to enjoy.


At 9pm the fireworks started and what a show that was!   People watched from both out on the lake, in their boats, and from the pool and surrounding areas of White Wing Resort where we held the Washer and Corn Hole tournaments and pot luck dinner.


It was a fantastic night!  Rain and all, guests enjoyed spending time together as well as meeting lots of new friends!!
