We welcome the arrival of warmer weather with
great plans for summer activities. Our pool is open and passes are
available at the front desk. We are in full swing with baseball and
softball. Even tee ball for the youngest will start soon. We still
have a slate of programs just waiting for you to register and join
in the fun.
What activity can say summer is here any better than fishing? The
only thing that would make it even greater is if it were free. Well,

Saturday, June 10. Hickory Lanes Campground, Atlanta, will host the
event. In the past years our fishermen have caught a lot of really
nice catfish. Prizes will be offered for the biggest, smallest and
the most caught. The competition begins at 9 a.m., and judging will
be around 11 a.m. The wiener wagon will be on hand to offer hot dogs
and sodas to the participants. Parental approval is a must and
parents are encouraged to attend. Worms will be provided for the

Fore! Having a problem with your golf game? Trying to
correct that bad hook or slice? By popular demand Jim Dunovsky
returns as our instructor for our one-week golf camp, June 19-23.
The camp consists of four days of instruction and ends with a
fun-filled 9-hole round of golf on Friday at Four Willows Golf
Course in Mason City. The primary focus of the camp will be on the
fundamentals of the golf swing: grip, stance, posture, form and
tempo. And finally, no lesson would be complete without some of the
basics on rules, philosophy and etiquette. Jim's great sense of
humor makes learning the game of golf a lot less frustrating.
Golfers ages 9-12 will be on the driving range from 8 to 11 a.m.
Ages 13 and up will be from noon to 3 p.m. Cost is $80 for
