While Skate the Lake is on sabbatical in Portland this year it does not mean that the last weekend in January will be an idle one for the ice or the village. A group under the Portland Athletic & Recreational Committee is coordinating the Portland Bay Winter Games, a family oriented fun day to fill the gap.
There will be 2-3 rinks on the lake ice for fun hockey games (men vs the women), kids curling and general skating. There will also be a family team relay race. Snow sculpturing for the kids, horse & sleigh rides, hot chocolate on the ice and food service in the community Hall and shuffleboard for all are some of the many activities.
There is no entrance fee – just bring your enthusiasm! In case of a storm all will move indoors to the Community Hall and it will all work out somehow. Saturday January 30 is a go! 11am to 4pm.
