Happy Summer Everyone!
Gull Lake Sailing School will be hosting a concert by the Riverside Hitmen and a picnic on and offshore at 1:00 - 4:00 July 11, 2020. We are planning a fun and safe day for your enjoyment! Our goal is to raise money for the Gull Lake Sailing School and to also make a contribution to the Brainerd Area Response Fund, set up by the Brainerd Lakes Area Foundation. The Response Fund has been providing critical grant dollars for areas hardest hit by the pandemic such as, food shelves, emergency daycare and mental health.
At GLSS we put safety first, on and off the water. Our theme for Summer 2020 is, Be Safe, Be Smart, Have Fun! We are grateful to have the most beautiful outdoor venue on Gull Lake. Our tables onshore and boats at the dock will all be safely distanced. The building will only be open for use of the restrooms upstairs. The lower level will be closed to the public. We have a cleaning attendant who will be on staff throughout the day. The bars will be outside and lunches with drink tickets will be delivered to your boat or table. We encourage everyone to enjoy connecting with their lake friends safely and we welcome the use of masks for your trips indoors or on the dock. We encourage caution on the docks and the lawn in front of the band during the concert. Remember, social distancing applies here too.
How you can help!
Help us raise funds to support Gull Lake Sailing School and the Brainerd High School Sailing Team. GLSS normally teaches approx. 90 students per year. This year we are only able to offer one class per week, or about 40 students. We are hopeful the high school teams will be back on the water this fall and competing again. You may DONATE HERE! or text DONATETOGLSS to 855-942-3584
