Ice Out Contest 2014

It’s that time again! Charlie made his trek out onto the ice today.

Make a guess as to when the ice will go out and when Charlie will fall though the ice. Two years ago Charlie fell through on March 19th. Last year Charlie fell through REALLY late, May 6th. The ice can go out as early as late March and as late as the first of May. So choose your date carefully.

When will Charlie fall through this year? It’s anybody’s guess and you could have the winning date and time. If Charlie sinks after dark he will be credited to the next day. John and Sue need some sleep too.

All you need to do is email us at [email protected] with your DATE and TIME of day as to when Charlie will fall through the ice. All entries must be in our email by March 15th. The contest is open to any age and the winner will get their name added to the plaque in the lodge lobby.

Good Luck and we hope you have fun with the fifth annual Charlie the Chipmunk Contest. John and Sue leave town on February 28th and not back home until March 17th. We’re heading off to sport shows. Our carpenter will be keeping an eye on Charlie for us. If there is any change during our absence he’ll get the pictures to me and I’ll update you. Otherwise, come back often after March 17th  as we will keep updating photos of Charlie.

As you will see Charlie had fun getting ready for his trek this year!

Sue has me all ready for the contest.

Look there's two of me! Guess which one of us gets to go out on the ice? The other one gets to stay warm and head off to the sport shows!

Wasn't that nice of them to feed me before I headed out onto the ice. Is this my last meal?

I decided it might be more fun to head out to the lake on a snowmobile.

I told John and Sue they better leave me a shovel with all the snow we're getting this winter.

Summer guests enjoying winter at WBV

Bill and Diane Schneider, long time summer guest of WBV, made their way up north to experience what winter is like. They had a blast trying snowshoeing for the first time. Bill headed out onto the lake with John for the first time in many years to go ice fishing. They weather was perfect Valentine’s Day weekend for them. They brought friends with them and said that they are definitely going to make this an annual event. We loved having them. This winter has been cold, but beautiful!!! We thank them for sharing their photos with us.

Fabulous Women’s Retreat

The village is a great setting for a women’s retreat! We hosted the 5th annual women’s retreat at the resort on February 8th and 9th. 18 women enjoyed being spiritually refreshed, spending time snowshoeing, great fellowship, laughter and good food. Our theme this year was Cafe Chocolat (by Group publishing) focusing on God’s Extravagant Grace. Needless to say chocolate found it’s way into the activities as well as each meal.
