Lake Sabrina
Nice cool breezes, a bit of rain, hail, lightning and thunder-booms were experienced by the many anglers at the Lake over the week. Those cool breezes were needed over the first of the week as it was darn warm up here when the clouds weren’t around. We had almost a half an inch of rain in less than a half hour Saturday night – sure love watching the lightning!

Rusty’s rolls over West Bishop

August 3, 2012

One of the dominant teams in the Men’s Softball Division, Rusty’s had to be the favorite in Wednesday night’s meeting with West Bishop. The team didn’t disappoint, establishing a lead in the first inning and expanding the margin to an 18-7 win.
West Bishop’s Brad Weaver put his team on top in the first, beating the ball to second base for a double, then scoring on a single by Bob Vega. But an out at first, a pop-out and the final forced out at second base ended the small scoring surge.

Lake Sabrina
Our nice relaxing, normal, everyday days were back at Lake Sabrina. Thank goodness!
No hail, no rain, no thunder and lightning, no mules being startled, no rock slide – although there were a couple of rock slides on Mt. Haeckel (covering part of the glacier in the Sabrina Basin) and around Picture Peaks along with reports of numerous other rock slides in the back country.
