Ladies Only, Fun on the Lake
“Ladies Day on the Lake” will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday June 18 2013 at Lighthouse Marina, 1925 Johnson Marina Road, Chapin, SC. The Lake Murray Association , SC Department of Natural Resources, Lake Murray Power Squadron and Columbia Power Sports will host this popular annual event, which is open to all ladies 17 years of age and older.
The purpose of Ladies’ Day is to instruct women about all elements of safe boating. This includes how to operate and dock a powerboat safely, back a boat trailer into the water to launch and retrieve boats. Each participant will have the opportunity to get into a DNR boat to take her turn operating it on the open water and to dock it at the marina. This will all be done under the competent and patient guidance of the DNR instructors. These are just some of the activities for this fun-filled day! A course in the safe operation of personal watercraft will be offered again this year by Columbia Power Sports. A safety presentation will be conducted by personnel of the Lake Murray Power Squadron.
Your DNR and Columbia Power Sports instructors are experienced specialists in watercraft operation and safety. They take the “mystery and frustration” out of boating and trailering. They teach you how to handle a boat and trailer confidently so that your boating excursions will be safe and enjoyable. LMA representatives will provide lunch
and refreshments and will assist in coordinating the day’s activities.
Past participants have described this event as one of the most fun-filled and pleasurable activities they have had on the lake. You can ask all of those “dumb” questions that you hesitate to ask and no one will laugh at you. No husbands or boyfriends are allowed – this day is for the ladies only.
This event-packed day on beautiful Lake Murray is always a sellout (only 32 spaces are available), so it is not too early to reserve your spot. The $35.00 fee is required in advance to hold your place. The fee covers your lunch, drinks, and all other expenses for the day. Act now and sign up!
