Tag !, You're it:
Remember that your current Member tag is important to use while on Club grounds (including the spill way boat launch) to keep from being ticketed or towed. Also, all boats need to have lot numbers on the hull, above the waterline. These are important Bylaws that exist to help protect your Club's interest. Trespassing citations have been already issued so be aware and prepared.
Lake and Grounds released $3,000 of grass carp (about 250 fish) this year. This is part of a long-term strategy to increase the biological management of the weeds. (Thanks to Fran and Sue for the images.)
Weed Management Guidelines
A "policy and procedure" document has been created to help lakefront owners manage the weeds. Click on Lake and Grounds to find the link.
Lake Water Test Results
As part of the lake and weed management program, the lake water was tested for the presence of Total Phosphorus and Total Nitrates, which are nutrients that support weed and algae growth. The lake is very clean and in good shape. The levels support weed growth, but are consistent with a non polluted lake. The nutrients do not appear to be coming from the subdivision, and not likely to be further reduced. For details, go to the Lake and Grounds tab to download the report.
No Swimming from Spillway Dock
Remember, there is no swimming in the spill way boat launch area. That includes the dock. If you see people swimming, please notify a Board member.
2019 Annual Meeting:

Security Update - NextDoor
The Club's webmaster has received several questions about letters from door next ( I've inverted the name because my previous post about this was blocked). I have friends in Boston who like it. They use it to stay up on garage sales, free stuff and the neighbors, like what you do here on FB.
It's NOT local, anymore than FB or Craig's List, both of which create "local" pages. In my personal opinion, it's redundant and very invasive. It tries to access your contacts and mine your data.
Personally, I plan to stay clear of it. Hope this helps.
New Clubhouse Roof:
The clubhouse's roof will be replaced the week of August 26th.
