PWSD #3 Open Meeting:

By Troy Lesan Rachel Homoly, of Liberty North High School is the granddaughter of Association members Noel and Margie Arens, and they have proudly witnessed the steady progress in her stellar career in Women’s High School Track and Field. Rachel who will be a senior next year has consistently pushed the bar higher in her chosen sport of Pole Vaulting. She is currently the state champion and state record holder for the state of Missouri. In this year’s state championship at Jefferson City, she set the alltime meet record by a whopping 12 inches to just over 14 feet. It wasn’t as if Rachel’s success was a surprise. She came in third in the National Jr. Olympics in 2018 in Des Moines Iowa and first in the event in 2019 at Greeneville North Carolina when she was in Middle School. Rachel has been soaring ever higher since then. There are some who are of the opinion that it will be a while before anybody else surpasses Rachel’s high school state record. Several of her vaults have been state records only to be broken again . . . by her! In Rachel’s case, it looks like the sky is the limit. (Literally!) “It is the closest that you can get to flying and being able to put it all on the line,” Rachel said of the Pole Vault event. Her efforts in this sport rank among the best nationally as well as in the state. And perhaps the best is yet to come. This year, in high school, she will be a senior.

Life Preservers: Children 8 years & younger must wear an approved life preserver within 50� of water.

Top 10

DISCUSSION Superintendent Report: Roger reported that the plant ran 24/7 from Thursday through Tuesday over the July 4th holiday. Due to cooler temperatures and less people watering, the plant was able to keep up with the demand and never lost pressure. Kyle Parkhurst, President, announced the next meeting would be August 16, 2022 at the water plant. The meeting was adjourned at 5:15 p.m.

FYI:LakeReviewingViking Official Group Facebook “Policy” This social media platform is a tremendous communication tool for Viking Valley Association Members, but it is to be used within the parameters of the “Policy.” As a condition of acceptance to the page members agree to adhere to this policy which can be found on the right hand side of the page. An overwhelming percentage of membership uses this page according to “Policy” guidelines. On a daily basis, members post on everything from inquiries about local vendors or merchants, food trucks, help finding plumbers, electricians, a repairman, questions about watercraft, boat-docks, and lawn care specialists or even lost dogs or cats. There have even been instances where members were broken down on the interstate and posted appeals for help which were answered immediately by other members. Many members are not full-time residents and are rightfully concerned about severe weather at the lake. Those questions are usually answered immediately by other members. The VVA Office will also post general information such as road closures, lake closures, office hours and employment opportunities. That being said, this page is not the official administrative arm of the Viking Valley Association. It’s not the “complaint desk,” and was never designed as such. Therefore, the page is not the place for criticisms of other members, staff, Safety, Board of Directors, Building Committee or Infraction Committee, which are in violation of “Policy.” Nor is the Facebook “messenger” an accepted administrative avenue for VVA business. Viking Valley employees value their personal time just as anyone else does. Viking Valley business, other than timely and informative announcements, will not be conducted on the Lake Viking Facebook page or by Facebook Messenger. The greeting on our office phone has options that will direct callers to the proper administrative channels. This newspaper has contained up to date listings of Board Members and Committee Members for decades. And ... always call 911 for emergency situations.

6. Wakesurf boats already authorized on Lake Viking may not be sold to another Lake member for use on Lake Viking. If a property is sold with a wakesurf boat, that boat will not be authorized to use the lake.

Proposed Rule on Wakeboats

3. Wakesurfing is restricted to the main channel & near the center of the channel, as marked by 4 wakesurf buoys.

6. Wakesurf boats already authorized on Lake Viking may not be sold to another Lake member for use on Lake Viking. If a property is sold with a wakesurf boat, that boat will not be authorized to use the lake.

NEW WAKE SURFING RESTRICTIONS

7. Any violation of the above wakesurfing rules is subject to maximum $500 fine. End of rule. Motion to discuss was seconded by Mike Booth. Discussion began & the following members participated: Bryce Wade, lot 224: Asked “Why can’t we replace our boats?” Discussion ensued regarding fairness, etc. of the rule. Matthew Nielson, lot 386: Asked if height of the wave created by wakeboats can be regulated and ticketed if the height was exceeded? Discussion ensued on the maximum height of a wave to surf on. Mr. Nielson responded he felt it was about thigh-high for an adult. A statement was made by the Board that it is impossible to consistently regulate/ measure the height of waves a boat is making. Board member George Eshnaur stated that we should have a case-by-case review of options to trade out or replace a boat that is aged out.

2. Wakesurfing shall only be performed behind a direct-drive inboard-type watercraft, in which the propeller is located under the keel of the boat.

Brian Edwards, lot 218: Will the buoys for the surfing area be lit at night and/or brighter so they would be easy to see during day? The answer from the Board was yes; they are working to have the buoys lit & a bright color.

2. Wakesurfing shall only be performed behind a directdrive inboard-type watercraft, in which the propeller is located under the keel of the boat.

5. Zebra mussels: If used outside Lake Viking waters, a thorough hotwash of boat & especially its water bladders (that easily hide zebra mussels) must be performed by Lake Viking sta .

7. Any violation of the above wakesurfing rules is subject to maximum $500 fine.

Christian & Nicole Rogers, lot 737: Said they just purchased a lot & built a house, so are boat shopping now. Will they still be able to have the wakeboat they are intending to buy? Answer: Only if it has been ordered by August 24. Kristen Pickens, lot 659: Do any current Board members surf? None are surfers. Also, E ective August 24, 2022 there is a freeze on additional wakesurf boats at Lake Viking. Only wakesurf boats already on the lake as of the above date are allowed, with the following restrictions:

George Eshnaur made a motion that the Financial Statements be approved as presented. Seconded by Doug Winter; motion passed. GUEST TIME No guests had requested time on the agenda.

The first reading of the original motion which was introduced last month by Celeste Armanees (Board contact for Handbook Committee) was read: “Surfing and/or plowing (that which maintains an excessive wake sufficient to support a surfer) behind any watercraft is prohibited.” Celeste then moved to replace this first reading with the following motion (please refer to the copy you received at front door of meeting):

1. NO additional wakesurf boats are allowed—whether new purchase nor replacement. Also, no boat of any kind shall be modified or retrofitted with a wave or surf device.

APPROVAL OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

www.LakeVikingMo.com Viking Valley Association Ph: 660-322-9001 L ake Viking News August 2022 15 er this year, since one of these lots has been sold. The county’s Tax Sale is August 22 which we’ll attend to purchase a few lots for Lake use. Also, the big tractor used by Maintenance Department was broken down but has been repaired, so is now back in service.

3. Wakesurfing is restricted to the main channel & near the center of the channel, as marked by 4 wakesurf buoys. ALL wakesurfing must be within / inside these “buoy boundaries.” Direction of travel is counterclockwise, consistent with normal lake traffic.

4. Water bladders or other watercraft weight-enhancement devices must be filled & emptied within the “buoy boundaries” set forth in #3 above. This rule applies to all watercraft that have wave-enhancing devices, whether wakesurfing or not.

Proposed Rule: Add at end of Water Rules & Regulations section (’22 Handbook, pg. 31):

BOARD DISCUSSION

WAKE SURFING: Effective August 24, 2022 there is a freeze on additional wakesurf boats at Lake Viking. Only wakesurf boats already on the lake as of the above date are allowed, with the following restrictions:

Mark Closterman, lot 1902: Is the confined area only for surfing? The answer was no—because this area within the 4-buoy boundaries--same as the rest of the Lake--will be open to all watercraft on the lake. Keep in mind that most surfers prefer to be out surfing when the water is calm, so usually in mornings or evenings when the lake has very little traffic.

VVA Meeting Continued from page 1 Continued on page 20

Mary Margaret Buehler, 88 of Kearney, Missouri, joined her beloved husband Russel C Buehler, in the loving arms of their savior Jesus Christ on Friday, July 29, 2022, at her home while holding her devoted daughter Linda’sHerhand.final days were spent surrounded by family and many friends she had touched throughout her full, incredible life. Mary was born a blessing to Fredrich and Meta Peters on a beautiful, breezy 66-degree day, Friday, December 1st, 1933, in Beaumont, Texas. Meta would later remarry, bringing her loving stepfather, Ferris into her life. Mary’s quiet, fun-loving personality was enjoyed by so many throughout a life of compassion, creativity, giftedness and faithfulness to her God, family, and friends. Mary worked at Hallmark Cards as an Artist until the birth of her first child. Her artistic talents would follow her in her new life as a devoted Domestic Engineer in the home, with hers and many other homes displaying her skillful portraits and paintings. She was often referred to by many as “the hardest working person I know”. She also excelled at landscaping, gardening, baking, crafts, restoration of almost anything, and could often be found lawn sculpting on one of her mowers. Mary was an avid Equestrian, Tennis player, Bowler, Flat Skier, and even tried skydiving at the youthful age of 80. Her faith in Christ was evident and unwavering. Mary’s natural beauty, inside and out, her unassuming yet magnetic personality will be missed by so many, but especially by those of her family she dearly loved, who must now learn how to manage life without her physical presence, until they can be gloriously reunited with her again in Heaven. Those survivors are Daughter Linda (Buehler) and Michael Gonzales of the home, Sons: Rusty and Theresa Buehler, Jim Buehler, Neil Buehler, Brother: Alfred Peters, Grandchildren: Kelsey Buehler, Lindsay (Buehler) and Ross Juliana, Grace Buehler, Lorin and Robert Anderson, Luke Viter, and many Great Grandchildren, Great Great Granchildren, and beloved cousins and close friends. She was preceeded in death by both parents and stepfather, and her loving husband Russel C Buehler.

The Board has spent countless hours reading & discussing the various published studies on wakesurfing. The questioning period was ended, and the Board voted on the motion to add the new “wakesurfing with restrictions” rule to the VVA Handbook. The motion which was made prior to the discussion passed by a vote of 4 yes & 1 no by George Eshnaur.

Tom Rice, lot 343: What is this rule’s definition of a wakeboat? He said there’d be situations where a boat owner would assume their boat was not a wakeboat or could be used as a wakeboat, when in truth it could be. He stated buyers and sellers need this definition in order to know what is & what is not permissible to buy or to sell to another member on the lake.

Josh Wright, lot 532: He stressed that he would like to preserve the lake for future generations of surfers (his kids & grandkids) but made the point that a person cannot afford to depreciate their boat to zero dollars and not be allowed to replace their wakeboat.
