Winter Newsletter 2019
Here’s what’s happening at the Beach House:
The staff at the Beach house has been hard at work, removing snow and ice, grooming the tennis courts for leisure ice skating and prepping for hockey, ice fishing and a skating path around the lake.
The weather hasn’t been in our favor and the lake is taking longer than originally anticipated.
South Beach is open year round, and staff will be able to assist you with equipment and answer any questions you may have.
Ice Skating is now open for Residents and their guests on the tennis courts. This rink is for leisure ice skating only. Due to the close proximity of houses nearby, Hockey pucks and sticks are not allowed. Come skate to music and warm up by our fire pit!
Hockey will be up and running this year as soon as staff is cleared to be on the ice and get rinks set up with posts, nets and lights.
Ice Skating lessons are coming up for 2020. Registration and dates will be announced soon.
Three on three hockey will be available if we have enough Resident interest. Previous years have fallen through due to lack of interest. If you are interested, please call the South Beach for more details @ (403) 285-5100 ext. 1.
Resident Information is still needed.

IMPORTANT ICE FISHING NOTICE
Please do not drill holes on the lake, other than in the designated Ice fishing area!
The CSRA will have a designated area set up for all ice fishing. The area will be cleared off and marked with a sign. We ask that all residents, fish in this area for the season.
Safety for Residents and our staff is our top priority. Fishing holes around the lake can cause unsafe ice conditions. Please fill up your drilled hole with snow after to maintain ice safety.
Before drilling a hole in the lake for fishing, make sure to contact the South Beach to confirm the lake is open as from time to time; we close the lake for fishing due to changing weather conditions.
