Sayers Lake Event Cancelled

Western PA Hardwater has moved both the location and date of the January 19th event from Sayers Lake to Lake Arthur in Butler, PA due to ice conditions. The event will now be held on Sunday 1/27.

Currently ice conditions are being monitored at Lake Arthur. The areas under consideration: upper 528 boat ramp, the church launch, and 528 bridge launch area. This decision will be made by late next week based on the safest ice conditions available.

We’ve got the ice itch and know you do too. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for the most recent updates.

Updated 2019 Series Dates

Western PA Hardwater will be switching our Kahle Lake and Sayers Lake dates back to the original dates due to another event being held at Sayers Lake on our originally scheduled date. Park rules do not permit two events on the same day, and the other event is a charity fundraiser which is for an extremely good cause. We are a Christian organization with big hearts and want to respect the space of other event/cause.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but hope you’ll still join us for both events. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for the most recent updates.
