April 7 1959 Corporate Charter #98938
Our Association represents over 400 paid-up resident and seasonal members on/near the Shadow Lakes and Gull River system between Norland & Coboconk who enjoy this area for swimming, boating, fishing or just being by the water. The Association's focus is to maintain and improve the community with activities such as the following:
In the early sixties, the Norland Library Board was searching for a way to raise money. They decided on sponsoring a trophy for Albacore Class boats of the Shadow Lake Sailing Club. A date was set and competing skippers paid an entry fee. A draw was held to fill the crews with local residents. The Shadow Lake Cottager's Association offered many boats to take spectators to the race. After all expenses, $50 was cleared the first year. The sailing event was repeated successfully in l965 and l966.
In 1994, the Junior Ontario Albacore Championship was held on Shadow Lake. It was a weekend event with many Albacores participating from all over Ontario. The sailing club has been a prominent activity on the lake for many years. Don Giffin played a big part in the sailing instruction. Over a 20 year period he wrote many sailing manuals which were used extensively to educate sailors not only on Shadow Lake but also throughout Ontario.

protection of our Land, Lakes and River system so that
