Cops beef up patrols for partying on lake

FORT ANN (AP) – Authorities say they plan to have vehicle checkpoints on land and marine patrols checking for inebriated boaters at an annual party held in a bay on a popular Adirondack lake.

The party known as Log Bay Day has been held for years on the last Monday in July on the water and along the eastern shore of Lake George in Fort Ann.

Scores of boats anchor in the shallow, sandy bay while other partiers pack the shore of the state-owned land. Some years, police have made dozens of alcohol-related arrests on land and on the water.

County and state law enforcement officers told The Post-Star of Glens Falls that they will patrol the road leading to the bay while other agencies beef up boat patrols.
