2023 Pike Lake Community Association Events
2023 Rock Dunder Hike
Date TBD (September)
We didn't get this organized last year, but in a recent questionnaire many expressed interest in doing this hike. We'll leave it until September so the bugs are less, and we can enjoy some of the fall colours.

Boat-In Movie Night! Saturday August 5, 2023 9:00 pm
Thanks so much to the Fowlie and Sibbit clans who hosted the Boat-In movie night again this year. Approximately 50 people in 9 boats enjoyed this event on a perfect summer night with warm weather and no wind. A huge thanks to the setup and technical crew of Kent, Sylvain and Francis.
The classic cottage film, The Great Outdoors, starring two great Canadian actors, John Candy and Dan Ackroyd was shown this year.
And there was even special delivery of popcorn by kayak by Quinn!
Thanks to Naomi Fowlie and Ted Howe for pictures!

Meet at the south end of the lake at 11:00 am. Get your boat, kayak, canoe or anything that floats decorated as there will be a prize for the best one.
Our Boatilla will wrap up at the entrance to Grants Creek at the north end of the lake at the Duguid Property. Look for the tents and balloons.
Parking for motor boats will be limited so if you aren't participating in the "boatilla" portion of the event, we encourage you to drive your car so the decorated boats can be viewed in the docking area.

We will be serving hamburgers and hotdogs as well as salads and non-alcoholic drinks. Please let us know if you would like gluten-free buns or veggie hotdogs or burgers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be lawn games and we will have activities for the kids.
Please bring along your own lawn chairs.
As with any volunteer-driven community event there are many opportunities to pitch in and help out to make hosting less of a a gigantic task for a small number of people. Please email us at email@example.com if you can help out.
We look forward to connecting with many of you throughout the summer!

2023 Dock Sale
Will not be held this year due to lack of interest
When opening up this spring, be sure to set aside gently used items that other Pike Lakers might be able to use and turn them into cash! What a great way to be environmentally responsible by recycling and reusing.

July 2 - Boatilla and Barbecue
Congratulations to organizers Jen Sinclair and Ian Forsyth for ordering up a fabulous day for our 2022 Boatilla and Barbecue. Approximately a dozen boats met at the south end of the lake at 11:00 am and slowly made their way up the lake toward Grants Creek and their passengers added to the approximately 60 barbecue guests at the Duguid property. Hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, freezies, chips and beverages were provided by the PLCA and beautiful and tasty cupcakes were graciously made and supplied by Brenda Duguid. If anyone got a picture of them, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org! Or if you have pictures to add to this gallery, please email them to email@example.com or post to the PLCA Facebook Group page.
So much effort and imagination went in to all the decorated boats and the lucky winner, The Senators boat received a gift certificate donated by O'Reillys Pub, in Perth.
It was great to see at least 3 generations of Pike Lakers in attendance with the under 12 crowd well represented! Many commented on how great it was to be able to see friends and neighbours in person.
Thanks again to the Duguids for allowing us to use their lovely property.
July 30 - Boat-In Movie
A huge thanks once again to the Fowlie and Sibbit families who hosted the 11th annual boat-in movie night.
The night was warm and calm - perfect weather conditions for the numerous boats, from pontoons to kayaks, who tied up for the evening's entertainment.
2022 was a diversion from previous years as the hosts chose to feature the original Top Gun movie as opposed to a true children’s/family film. Young children present were invited to the cottage for their own age appropriate films.
Boat-In Movie host, Kent Fowlie, showed up wearing a 1970s F18 fighter jet helmet.
Guests were treated to bags of popcorn.
