Slalom Course
The Ski Club has gotten Council's endorsement to place the Slalom Course in the upper (north) right (east) end of the Lake this year, up near the Lodge.  See the image at the link below for details.

No-Wake Zones
Additionally, the Anglers Club will be installing a dozen or so new no-wake buoys in various 'coves' reflecting the required regulatory no-wake distances.  It is hoped that these buoys will protect the coves and also serve as aides to operators in judging the required distances while out on the water in other areas as well.

See the link below for a map showing locations.

No Lake Drawdown
There will be no lake drawdown this fall.  A drawdown is anticipated in either the fall of 2021 or 2022; nothing firm.  We will ask Bill Kirkpatrick to address the 'optimum' drawdown interval (or a good range) during our upcoming Service Corp Annual Meeting/Town Hall.

Boat Licenses
Boat licenses are available on-line at, along with payment of water, sewer, and Service Corp dues.  Stickers are being mailed to your address on file, or an alternate you request. Please do not expect to pick them up at the office at the present time.
AirBNB's and other Rentals
The Governor has ordered all AirBNB and vacation rentals to cease for the foreseeable future, until the pandemic subsides.  There are one or two occupied units that predated his order so it may be a week or so before they remain unoccupied. 

If you have a rental and are unfamiliar with Governor Wolf's order, please get acquainted.  Otherwise you will be acquainted with our Police or the State Police if necessary...   :)

See the buttons below for Governor Wolf's order and its attachment.

The following is from Bill Kirkpatrick, our lake quality and weed consultant:
Our plans for the management of the aquatic vegetation for 2020 will be as follows:
I will make a visit to the lake around the end of May or beginning of June to conduct a survey of the vegetation. I will take a boat around the shoreline of the lake, determine where vegetation is growing and what the appropriate management options should be. If American elodea and pondweed require treatment, then a treatment will be planned for the last half of June. If water lilies need to be managed, they may be treated in June or at the end of the summer. The timing of the treatment will be based on the species of water lily and where it is growing.  
Typically vallisneria will be treated in late July. I expect that will be the case again this year. 
Please let me know if you need any additional information. 
Bill Kirkpatrick

More will be published as we get closer to June.  As mentioned earlier, Bill will be available for our Annual/Town Meeting.
