Vol. 42 No. 3 March, 2013 Cheney Lake, KS

From the Commodore: This Month B.O.G. Meeting 2 Classifieds 5

From the Editor:

This certainly has been one memorable month! For the first time since I was a kid I was actually hoping for lots of snow, in the watershed of course. It has not made a lot of difference but it was real nice to see water actually running into the cove and filling in around some of the slips. Now with the ground saturated if we could just get some good rain it might do some good. Work on the wall at the crane, removing obstructions in the channel and repair to C dock are continuing with a lot of progress having been made in the last few weeks. Although the drought has not been a secret, the local water authorities and state have finally raised the level of serious dialogue concerning its impact and conservation of our water resources. While the supply of drinking and domestic water if of primary importance I think we need to make sure everyone understands the recreational impact on our parks and lakes, and the financial distress that is being felt needs to be included in the discussion. Hopefully we can find solutions that will benefit both. If you havenâ€&#x;t been to the lake recently you should go as there is nothing quite like the beauty of our parks and lakes in the spring. Awesome to be sure.

The MAINSHEET From Past-Commodore

Jack Kramer

If NSA members haven't been to the Club lately, they may not realize the activity going on around the crane. The Board of Governors have taken advantage of the excessively low water to enhance the area around the crane. With the water approximately 8 feet below pool, the Club had the unique opportunity to remove the old bag wall at the base of the crane and loading platform, and replace it with a poured concrete wall. With footings and 8 additional piers already in place, the final pour was performed on March 5th and covered with blankets to promote proper curing (installing the blankets in 30 mph winds was quite a challenge). The forms and blankets will be removed the week of March 11th. Final activities for the project include reinstallation of the wooden deck, addition of a metal deck where the bag wall used to be off the west end of the loading platform, and pouring a small amount of concrete at the corner of the loading platform that had to be removed. Be sure to thank the Harbormaster and Property Manager for a job well done. Our next focus is on the channel between A-Dock and Adams Jetty. We had attempted to deepen the path to the crane but the water was too high and we could not make progress to the West from the crane. We have not given up on the idea of deepening the channel, but we have yet to find a feasible option. On a positive note, the Harbormaster and some volunteers removed substantial structures from the area between A-Dock and Adams Jetty (the "hump"), and between A-Dock and B-Dock. These were old pieces of docks left in the lake from long ago. If you have a chance, come out to the Club and see the progress being made.
