Other Information:

The Ninnescah Sailing Association has been celebrating the end of the summer with fireworks at the lake since 1995.  For years the club had fireworks on the 4 th of July like everyone else.  1995 brought the 30 thanniversary of NSA and a huge celebration was planned.  It also brought floods that would postpone the celebration from July 4 th to the Labor Day Weekend.  Since then NSA has celebrated the end of the summer with a spectacular fireworks display over the lake.  Come celebrate the summer of 2015, our 50th anniversary, Sunday September 6 at the Ninnescah Sailing Association located on the West Shore of Cheney Reservoir.  Fireworks begin at sundown.  You can watch them from the water or watch them from the cove in front of the NSA activity center.  Come early, bring a lawn chair, and enjoy the display.  We look forward to seeing you there.
