BROADALBIN -- The 10th annual Great Sacandaga Lake Business Association Sand Island Bash drew hundreds of boats and an island jamming party Saturday to the lake.

The show went on with music by Off Kilter even as the clouds rolled in and a few sprinkles of rain developed.

"I can't believe how many people are here," said Laura Mead as she kayaked closer to the shore. "Imagine how many people would be here if the sun were out."

No sun was no problem as Great Sacandaga Lakers participated in one last celebration.

The GSLBA plans events to encourage encouraging recreation, resourceful use, and enjoyment of the lake. In addition to the bash, the association hosted this year's dam tie-up along with summer and winter fireworks displays.

The next GSLBA event is the red neck cocktail party held at Sport Island Pub in Northville Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the event will go on sale soon, and some may be purchased at the door.
