-Course #3 and #4 are currently up, currently both docks are at course #3. Tim Peterson and Dan Johnson are installing trex on the older dock that should be maintenance free for the next 20+ years. With the low water this year course #3 will likely only be usable until mid June then we will be on course #4 the rest of the summer. When driving to course #3 please use the shortcut when the water is above -2.75 so you don't send rollers into the course. Go to https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/14s24CS-xc-c-IfvbEvPCY1hltF9NFGozba6i2ceM5kQ/edit?usp=sharing for driving directions to course #3 that shows the shortcut and where/how to drive when the water is below -2.75.
