Look at Beulah at the NCAA
When Shawn Murphy looked over his shoulder at the Final Four, who did he see? Lake Beulah members Mike LaFratta and Tim Lange. It was Beulah Badger Fever in Dallas. Let's hope the trio brings more luck to the homelake waters than the hard court at ATT Stadium. With 77,000 watching, how can Beulah find each other?
Spring is coming; Summer to follow
Update 4/10/14 Shorelines are open. Ice is moving. Won't be long.
Golden pond is still covered with a thick sheet of ice, it's a great day for iceboating!
As the sun rises over Beulah we take hope, the weather will warm and the lake will melt. Spring will arrive and hard upon it will follow summer! The board has been hard at work and a full slate is planned! It all begins with Workday, Saturday, May 3rd. 8:00. Frank Rappold will have your duties and donuts waiting. Sailing starts the weekend of May 17!

Not around here, mind you, but down south...
Anne Haeger and crew sailed in the 470 North Americans and were crowned NorthAm Champs, and also finished first in the World Cup. The new ISAF World Rankings came out and they have moved up to 3rd in the World as they head off to Europe on March 19.
Mary Claire Kiernan crewed @ Club 420 Midwinters for Lucy Wilmot and finished Third overall and first girl team -
solidified their third overall finish with a convincing win in race 11. Lucy had crewed for MC last summer at Geneva in the Nationals where they finished second.
Winter comes to Lake Beulah
There's snow on the grass, a couple dustings so far. There's ice on
the pond, the forecast says it's here to stay. There's hats on the
girls, to ward off the chill. Winter has come to Lake Beulah.
It's the Off-season
All quiet on the Beulah front as the leaves turn and fall and the
snowbirds head south. Carol and co. have put together the last
Mainsheet of the year - see it in full color right here: MAINSHEET Happy offseason!
