The Deep Creek Lake State Park boat ramp will be closed to use by the public from 7:00 am until 11:00 am on Sunday, September 21, 2008. The SavageMan Triathlon will begin and end at the Deep Creek State Park boat ramp area resulting in delays and congestion from 5 am until at least 5 pm on Sunday. The event is part of a fund-raiser and awareness campaign of the non-profit Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation. For additional information about the TRI-TO-WIN SavageMan Triathlon, visit the website: www.savagemantri.org. The swim event begins and ends on the ramp itself, so the boat ramp will be closed to ALL traffic during this portion of the race. Visitors who anticipate using the park boat ramp that weekend are encouraged to avoid any use of the ramp on Sunday to help minimize congestion and to avoid long delays. Parking spaces for boaters with handicaps will not be available at the ramp on Sunday but arrangements for transportation from parking spaces within the park to the ramp can be made prior to the event by contacting the park at 301-387-5563.
