Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Circle R Ranch-Fishing-Tennis

 

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Circle R Ranch-Fishing-Tennis. Are you ready to try something new while visiting Deep Creek Lake? How about venturing to Sand Flat Road and paying The Circle R Ranch a visit. Saddle up with the family (ages 7 and up) and go for a trail ride across a gorgeous ridge line in the heart of DCL. Prices are reasonable, and the experience will penetrate deep memories that will last a life time. Get out and smell the summertime air as you travel on the oldest transportation in the history of the world.  You will fall in love with these wonderful animals while having the time of your life!

 Check out the fishing report here at the lake as well as any information regarding boat rentals, tackle suppliers and hot spots (If anyone shares their secret spot). I can give you the best fishing tip for the serious angler… Get out there EARLY! As you know fish have a tendency to feed early in the mornings but more importantly you want to get out there before the boat traffic.

Chances are they caught some fish… Early bird gets the worm, which gets the fish:).

It is tennis time again and the 92nd Annual Western Maryland Tennis Championships will be held August 1-4th.   Played on red clay, the tournament is sanctioned by the USTA.  Our cooler mountain air makes playing in August tolerable.  Below is a link to the web site for the tournament as well as a link to the entry form.  Cut-off for signup is Tuesday July 30th.   Even if you don’t play, come watch some great tennis.

The real estate market at Deep Creek continues to show some healthy signs as activity continues to show strength through the summer. If you have interest in buying a second home here at the lake, I would advise getting started before the interest rates creep up.

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013!

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013!

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013! Some of you may be relaxing this weekend with a warm cup of joe and dunking a donut or two, but at DeepCreekLake the only dunking going on will entail a few thousand people watching a few warm hearted fund raisers plummeting in the depths of the icy lake. Ice cold purple bodies will risk all at the Deep Creek Dunk to raise money for the Special Olympics. “Lucky” for the dunkers that the air temps will be in lower 40’s but believe me when I tell you the lake temps are going to be slushy bitter cold. The chainsaws have been working this week to cut out the thick ice to create the perfect dunk zone.

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013!

Costumed dunkers consume the atmosphere trying to win the coveted costume contest. Believe me when I tell you that the creativity witnessed in some dunkers is far worth the price of admission to this super event (oh that’s right, there is no admission). Kiss, Michael Jackson, Nemo, Hank Jr, Gnomes, Clowns, and famous athletes have all made appearances at the evenT.

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013!

 

Uno’s and The Honi Bar will be serving up plenty of coffee and hot chocolate or your favorite drink of choice to keep you warm as a dunker or spectator. Of course, there will be plenty of food to keep you satisfied for the afternoon.

 

Goosebumps & Grapes, a wine tasting event & bonfire, kick-off the festivities on Friday 2/22/13 night from 6:00pm – 9:00pm at The Honi Honi Bar.

The Deep Creek Dunk’s official start time will be at 2:00pm on Saturday 2/23/2013 but people start the party mid-morning and carry on until late afternoon.

DEEP CREEK DUNK 2013!

FYI… After the dunk, the next traditional event is to head to the Black Bear Tavern to watch The Davisson Brothers Band perform.

 

Here’s a video from a few years back to get you pumped up!

42nd Annual Wisp Labor Day Sale-Wisp Outdoors Sale 2012

 

42nd Annual Wisp Labor Day Sale-Wisp Outdoors Sale 2012

42nd Annual Wisp Labor Day Sale-Wisp Outdoors Sale 2012. This weekend is very exciting because it is the famous annual Rudy’s Wisp Labor Day Sale and Wisp Outdoors Sale! My phone has been blowing up with calls from clients wanting to get a big jump on competing shoppers for the mega blowout sale. In my best used car salesman voiceJ, “the deals are crazzzzy!”

Rudy’s will be hosting their 42nd Annual Labor Day Sale in Wisp’s Lodge from Friday, August 31st through Monday, September 3rd and I can’t reiterate enough the savings you will receive on skis, snowboards, winter apparel, and the list goes on and on.  I’m talking discounted warehouse prices on last year’s inventory.  No joke!  People who have experienced this sale before put it on their yearly schedule and are first in line to fill up their arms with mountains of winter sports gear.

Hours are:

Friday- 9am-8pm

Saturday-9am-8pm

Sunday- 9am-6pm

Monday -9am-4pm

Questions call 301-387-4640 or email info@rudysatwisp.com.

42nd Annual Wisp Labor Day Sale-Wisp Outdoors Sale 2012

 

Wisp Outdoors also has an annual sale that equally compares to the Rudy’s sale! They take their demo and rental paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes at the end of every season and sell them over the Labor Day Weekend at discounted rates. There are a lot of people literally counting down the seconds until this sale starts so they can pounce on this sought after recreational gear. Get there early and scoop up a deal! Remember that this is the best time of the season (in my opinion) to enjoy these sports on the lake.  It’s warm, calm and glassy this time of year…

As a child, we have fond memories of hearing the out-of-key chime of the ice cream truck in the vicinity of our neighborhood. I can hear Eddie Murphy now…”ICE CREAM MAN IS COMING!” in his hilarious child-like voice. Then we are off running to find mom to beg for some spare change for a bomb pop and then on our bike’s chasing the wobbly sound blaring out of some tired speaker. I’ll never forget how we would congregate all of our bikes together on those hot summer days and inhale melting ice cream until our faces and hands were covered with as much sticky sugar as our skin could absorb.

Deep Creek Lake now has a new addition to the water that will hopefully bring you and your children fond ice cream-based memories; this floating ice cream stand is known as Deep Creek Marina’s YUMMY YACHT. That’s right folks, we have an ice cream boat to bring you all your favorite flavors whenever you get the urge for something cool and refreshing out on the lake. Julie Spiker is the captain of this freezer-packing vessel and will be happy to bring your favorite treat right to your boat. Keep your keen ears open to that familiar carnival sound of the Yummy Yacht this summer and bring smiles to your children’s faces and the rest of your family while enjoying a sweet treat on a special lake.
