Three More Weeks Until #WCLWP

Only three more weeks until Winter Carnival at Lake with Petie and the schedule is set. It’s going to be an exciting weekend. Friday night will be kind of loosey goosey as folks arrive. Everything starts at 6PM Central Time. In fact, all times are Central Time. The wonderful chefs and #Nipclub Catering will have a buffet of yummy stews, soups, breads, desserts and drinks waiting for you. There will also be moonlight horse drawn sleigh rides starting at 8PM. Or you can just relax around the fireplace. There will be a self serve bar where you can fix yourself a hot toddy! The bar will be fully stocked so you can fix whatever you want and will be open 24/7.

Saturday breakfast will be from 7AM to 9AM and will again be buffet style. Not sure what #Nipclub Catering has on the breakfast menu, but I promise it will be fantastic. At 10AM the fun begins. There will be snowball fights, snow and ice sculpting, and skating on the lake until 11:30AM. You’ll have half an hour to get dry and warm up before lunch. We’ll be serving from noon until 1PM. Afternoon fun starts at 2 and goes until 3:30 unless pals want to go longer. We’ll head out into the woods for snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. Sorry for the compressed schedule, but it does get dark early in the winter!

Dinner will be at 6PM. That should give everyone a chance to rest and relax. After dinner is free time. You can hang around the fireplace, go for another sleigh ride, build a snowman, or whatever strikes your fancy. Unfortunately, the official photographer won’t be available for after dinner activities, but I’m sure some of you will have your own cameras to record all the fun!
Sunday morning breakfast will be the same as Saturday – buffet from 7AM to 9AM. I know most of you will be partied out by then, but all the activities will be available from 10AM to 12PM for those who are interested. The transporter will be available all morning so you can leave whenever you’re ready.

I’m very much looking forward to what I think will be fun and exciting weekend. I hope you’ll all join me for Winter Carnival at Lake with Petie! #WCLWP
