Keep in touch with your White Birch Village Family
We’d love to have you be a part of our Ice Out Contest. Send us an email at [email protected] with the DATE and TIME that you think Charlie will fall through the ice. All guesses are due by March 10th. The person whose time is the closest will be the winner and get their name on our Ice Out Contest plaque. If Charlie falls through the ice during the night the date will be credited to the next day. Sue and John will be at sport shows March 1-13, but Scott will be keeping an eye on him for us.
Charlie had some fun going out on the ice this year. He decided that being an ice fisherman was the way to go. Do you think he’ll catch anything?
We’ll begin posting updates when there are changes to the ice. Have fun everyone! Get your guesses into us soon.
The First annual White Deer Triathlon took place in Boulder Junction on Saturday, May 16th. It was a huge success. White Birch Village was a gold sponsor of the event and John was on the planning committee for it. My sister-in-law Debra Malmgren, who runs in marathons, had never done a triathlon and got a large group together to participate in the race. Her brother, Joe Ritchie, joined in the effort. Team Ritchie had quite a few participants. We would like to thank Ritchie Propane for being the platinum sponsor of this inaugural event, in memory of their son Jeremy. All the hard work paid off for Deb and her friend Jill as they took second place in the kayak team division.
Thanks to my brother, Brad, for sharing all his wonderful pictures that he took during the triathlon as I was holding down the fort at the resort!
The second leg of the race was a 23K bike ride.
The spring ritual of putting the docks in took place in snow showers. It never fails, whatever day we schedule for docks the weather turns nasty. The guys braved the snow and cold temps to get the docks ready for this weekend.
The 19th annual Journey’s Marathon took place this morning with the start line at White Birch Village. It’s a fun morning for us. WE enjoy all the activity and seeing the runners get ready and their families here to support them. Be sure to check out our Facebook page as I posted a couple videos from this morning.
Last night after a full day of spring cleaning John and I went canoeing. What a beautiful night it was. The temperature was 75 degrees with wind to keep the bugs away. The water levels are high in the flowage/Bob’s Lake and the water plants haven’t started yet, so we could get around easily. We were entertained the entire time with all the wildlife. Enjoy all the photos.
After taking pictures of Charlie today, I took my first hike around the property. What a beautiful day; the sun is shining, the snow is melting and the birds are chirping. It’s time to start getting cleaned up for all our guests to arrive 🙂 We can’t wait to see all of you.
I enjoyed my stroll on the nature trail!
Congratulations to Chris Weisenbeck, one of our winter guests, for winning the ice out contest! Charlie has taken the plunge. The spring temperatures today helped Charlie to go swimming.
Even with the 5 inches of snow that fell last night, Charlie has begun his lean. The ice has begun to recede from the shoreline. Some warm temps and Charlie may be wet soon.
It’s ice out contest time.
