For those of you looking to add a little spice to your morning, our bartenders will be pouring Bloody Mary’s infused with Bacon provided by Jones Dairy Farm. The Bloody Mary's come with a small fee, but just about everything else is included in your registration.  So bring a lawn chair, a smile, and just enjoy one of the last great weekends of summer on the lakefront.
