Otis,

You missed the excitment on Sunday afternoon when that storm came down the lake.

Eye Witness Account: From My Family Members In The Village:

Mastercraft Parasail Boat, roll's over in bad weather, with chute still attached. The chute was dragging the boat down the lake. The rope broke sending the parachute with on person attached sailing in the air from Paulist Fathers to the tip of the Antigua resort. The guy landed 500ft off shore then got tangled up on someones dock. He was banged up but OK

Second boat with chute attached couldn't make any forward progress with the 40 mile per hour winds to bring the parachute down. The line snapped as well sending the two people attached sailing through the air and then skipping over the water by the Antigua Resort. These two people got hung up on the dock 5 houses down from the first chute.

Thank God EveryOne Was Safe!!!!!!!!!!!

Mountains????
Powerlines????


I Still Can't Believe The Parasail Operators left the people stranded 2.5 miles away from the village forcing the bruised and battered customers to find there own way back to the rental office???????

I'm not starting trouble but, this could have been the second tragedy for this company since the Ethan Allen.

From A Concerned Citizen, That Won't Be Parasailing Any Time Soon!!!
