This is a waterfront property. Swimming, 2 kayaks and a paddle board are available using the dock.

Please read the information carefully so you fully understand what the weekend is all about, and how it will be conducted and how to submit your name if you are interested to participate [ send note before August 31st ]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The original plan for the “Re-Discover Waupoos Weekend“ was for a two night stay, however we are now considering a three night stay so more people in the Club can attend with a 2-group approach. The first group for two nights, and the second group for one night.

On the main level of the B&B there are 3 bedrooms each with a queen size bed. On the lower level there is one room with two double beds. Guests in this room will have to double up. The maximum number of couples in each group is 5. If there are more people than Martin can accommodate, then a draw out of a hat will be conducted, rather than a first come first served approach. Please read the following description carefully and decide which group you want to be in, and let Martin know by email which group you select.

IMPORTANT: Guests are required to bring their own bed sheets and pillow cases. Blankets and pillows are provided. The guest house has a fully equipped kitchen on the main floor and a kitchenette in the lower level. There is one full bathroom, and 2 three-piece bathrooms.

Group 1 would arrive on Friday, September 16th after 4pm. With people from Group 2 arriving on Sunday morning, let it be clear that everybody in Group 1 and Group 2 are welcome to stay all day Sunday, and decide what activities they want to do…. whether it is socializing or swimming or relaxing or going to a concert.
