VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Call to Order Tony Gronniger, lot 2281, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the clubhouse at 6:30 p.m. Mike Booth led in prayer. Shad Mort led the Pledge of Allegiance. Tony Gronniger opened the meeting with the Vision/Mission Statement: “Lake Viking is a private lake aspiring to preserve our community and environment for future generations.” “Our informed members are the strength of our community.” Approval of Minutes Mark Leggett moved to approve last month's minutes. Troy Lesan seconded; motion passed. Handbook Committee No report Finance Committee Met on August 5th on Zoom, 6 members present along with Mandy Kaullin from Westbrook CPA as our guest. Mandy reported as a result of Steven Livingston being in the office for three full days during the last week of July, we were able to cross the finish line with the integration of our financial operations into Westbrook’s system. Westbrook & Co., P.C., Certified Public Accountants, Richmond, MO., is now doing our financials. As Board Members we will see, our Financial Documents have a slightly different look than previous officegenerated documents as a result of the Westbrook system. Mandy spoke to the group briefly about how their company will coordinate with the VVA. Their system is set up so they will be able to remote into our computers, although it is anticipated that their staff will still be on our property 2 to 3 times a month for payrolls and payables. Both Mandy and Steven from Westbrook advised us that we set up one more of our office computers with user status and Marvin plans on working on this. There are still a couple of final items that Westbrook is working on. Board Members will notice the absence of the monthly Income vs. Budget statement and that will start appearing next month. In other business, Financial Statements were reviewed and it was noted that without the big-ticket items of capital gains tax payments and the first of three $99,000 payments to Selby Construction for work on the silt basin, other

expenses are actually down from last year at this time. Shad has made a couple of purchases on the capital expenditures list and the cost has been as projected. In items for next month, the Finance Committee will set a recommendation for next year’s campground rates and try and recruit new members with strong financial backgrounds. Strategic Planning Committee We are in the process of reviewing the long range strategic plan. We will update quarterly. Activities Committee In July the activities committee painted the underneath of the shelter house. We had an impromptu meeting to discuss getting all of our August activities in place. Kid movie night was canceled due to circumstances beyond our control. August 13 we will have the Now and Then Band on the patio and on the 14th we have the Fishing Tournament from 5 am - 11 am, it is a catch and release, and part of the proceeds will go to restocking of the lake. The scavenger hunt is on August 21st from 10 am - 2 pm. Fire Department No Report Campground Committee We met in person and by conference call, to discuss many upgrades. In the fall, we would like to go through and re-label all breakers, renumbering the sites as well. Most of the work on this was on coming up with a proposal for the finance committee on proposed fees for 2022, which was given to the finance committee on Thursday. Lake Committee Members had two working sessions on the water that resulted in a check of zebra mussel detectors with no zebra mussel presence found. Several more non-compliance letters are being sent out on brush piles on properties and also tall and unsightly strands of weeds on several shorelines. Thus far compliance with our notification letters has been good with only a few property owners receiving infractions. Infraction Committee No Report

Safety Committee Jason presented a 2022 budget. The Marina still does not know when the Jetski will be here. The one we were repairing had a carburetor issue. Dredge Committee Construction began on the south side, it is continuing right along. Within the next week, we should see them digging out. On the temporary road we have some soft spots in them, we will continue to pack that down and monitor that. There is also some work that needs to be done on 165th, there are some narrow areas there. We have been discussing with the road commission and Shad Mort about doing work there to make that passable. Pat and Shawn, Pat is our dredge operator, spent about two to three hours there, mapping out and measuring the entire area and came up with a game plan on how we want to attack that. We will continue to clean up the creek down at community area 3 and also the ponds in that area.

August 2021 Volume 34, No. 4

August 8, 2021 Building Committee We had 14 permits last month, one house. Lake Manager Report (Shad Mort) Tony had approached me about doing portable speed bumps. There are several areas around the lake we thought about deploying portable speed bumps, we can take them out during the winter for snow removal purposes and other things of that nature. If we put these down, we will need to have signs up that state “Speed Bump Ahead” before each one. The prices of these vary, the rubber heavy-duty ones go up to about $260 apiece, you can get other rubber ones for about $171 apiece. The plastic ones are about $138 apiece. Depending on how many we decide to deploy, if any, we will have to figure out the cost. Also, the post the MoDOT uses for the signs ranges from $160-$280 apiece and an additional $10-$30 for the signs. Troy asked how many locations do we anticipate needing them? Continued on page 4

Lake Viking had an exciting Cardboard Boat Race, a Patio Party with a superior band called Now & Then, a great fishing tournament, & breathtaking sunsets - all within 8 days! The next event to be reported on is The Scavenger Hunt.

Friday night the Now & Then band joined us for a patio party! If you weren’t there, you missed out! Be sure to catch them next time!

About 4-6 spots. You can either pick 6 foot or 8 foot. We have several places to put up new speed limit signs. We put in a new one-way sign in the entrance, new stop signs, and 25ton signs for the dam. We will continue to replace the signage around the lake. The board will table this for now and will discuss it next month. Road work and asphalt patching will continue in the next two weeks to finish out chip and seal operations. Please be aware and go slow over the freshly patched roads. As soon as we are done with the asphalt we will start digging out coves to get them cleaned out. We have had a few people reach out to volunteer to watch the pool after school begins. I am waiting on the pool manager to get me the schedule so we can see when we need the help. Financials Troy Lesan moved to approve the financial reports. Mark Leggett seconded; motion passed. Guest Time Kyle Rensenhouse lot 16, Infraction Tickets.

Currently on the maps the campground is labeled with letters as well as numbers. We would like to clean that up, Campground One will be number 1-199 and Campground Two will start at 200-299. We know we’re pretty much full so we won’t go over those numbers. If and when there is a Campground Three we can number them 300-399. Plans are to send out a new campground lease agreement at the beginning of 2022 with new changes. Mike Booth motioned to renumber the Campgrounds. Troy Lesan seconded, motion passed. 2. Current billing runs March-October, then winter camping. Part of that discussion was to move the fiscal year to January through December - One invoice for the whole 12 months. Mike Booth moved to adjust the campground fiscal year to January 1 to December 31, with a single 12-month annual rate set by the campground committee and finance committee. Troy Lesan seconded; after a lengthy discussion, motion passed. 3. Marvin motioned the Lake Viking Board of Directors to approve a moratorium on any further construction or upgrade on any private boat ramps. Troy Lesan seconded; Motion passed. 4. Marvin motioned that the Board of Directors immediately suspend access to dumpsters in the maintenance yard until a permanent solution is identified and implemented to end the excess and illegal use of Associationprovided dumpsters. Mark Leggett seconded; several concerns were discussed. Mark Leggett asked that we implement a minimum fine and Allan Slavin pointed out that we already have a minimum fine in the handbook. After discussion, the motion was tabled. 5. Lake Viking News meeting is on August 18. We need a 11x17 color printer in the Association Office. We had projected a average monthly income of around $4,000 for the Lake Viking News and June and July have been above average. 6.

Stay safe on Lake Viking roads

New rice

By Jason McTheeney Recently, the safety department has noticed an uptick in people who are not complying with the ATVs, Golf Carts, Four-Wheelers & Motorized Conveyance rule found on page 35 of the 2021 Lake Viking Association handbook. According to the handbook, all operators must possess a valid license on their person. We are frequently seeing younger and younger drivers around the lake. We have been and will continue to issue infractions to the lot owner who violate this rule. We will also remain vigilant for people who are operating these motorized conveyances unsafely, to include excessive speeds. Please review the handbook regularly and ensure that you communicate to your guest the expectations of our homeowner’s association. Our goal is to encourage voluntary compliance with all the rules for the betterment and overall safety of our community.

PUBLIC COMMENT There was no public comment. OLD BUSINESS Roger presented the latest figures from Bartlett & West on the plant upgrade. The board felt that further explanation was needed on the amounts so Roger will contact the engineers prior to the next meeting for clarification. NEW BUSINESS

Horst requested the amended date be added to the budget report. Jeffrey Speaker moved to approve the amendments and Harlan Horst seconded. All members were in favor; motion carried. Discussion was held on the implementation of a policy pertaining to lots sold by Collector's Deed. The board did not feel a policy was needed but did clarify that any prior debt owed on a lot sold via Collector's Deed would not be the responsibility of the buyer. Information was presented on the water line bypass that is scheduled to be done in the south end where the silt pond basins are being built.

Since three valves would be buried under the basins, these are being bypassed to avoid any issues in the future. Decker Construction will be doing the work which will be paid for by Viking Valley Association. Roger informed the board of the illegal connection to a fire hydrant by the owner of lot 431. After discussion, the board agreed to assess a $200 fine to the lot owner since the infraction was in direct violation of the Rules & Regulations of the district. DISCUSSION

Epic Lake Viking Tradition Continues By Troy Lesan The Annual Lake Viking Marine Cardboard Boat Race, held on August 7, was a true spectacle and an exciting show from beginning to end. Early in the afternoon, before the boat races started, with the colorful boats lines up on the marina floor, it was apparent how much work and creativity went into their construction. Somewhere in that mix of boats was a less conspicuous, austere boat, somewhat battle-worn, corners firmed with masking tape, and painted an inconspicuous black and red but with ominous words painted on the side that said “Be Afraid.” (More about that boat later). There were the sleek and brightly colored cardboard boats of every size and shape (many in the PeeWee Division) and bearing exotic names in each division such as The Mano Igloo, Sonic Hedgehog, and, yes, The Green Bean. As contestants populated the shoreline, many were resplendent in colorful costumes. A couple of young ladies were wearing pink and purple troll wigs, a young man was dressed like a Mad Max Thunderdome Warrior, and there were even clown costumes. As the race approached, a pick-up and trailer appeared bearing what was perhaps the biggest cardboard boat yet seen at this event. The boat, The Mano Igloo, belonged to the event’s main sponsor, Kyle

Rensenhouse, and it took several men to unload the impressive cardboard craft off the trailer. Once the races started, there were five heats in the Pee Wee Division as well as several in the teen and adult divisions. As the heats were completed, it became apparent that one boat with the name “A Murphy Ca” lettered on the side was beginning to dominate. All totaled, this boat, raced by various members of the Rumsey and Lien families, won five different heats! But the races weren’t over. It was time for the adult division, and the mighty Mano Igloo, complete with the imagery of fire shooting out the exhaust, was positioned into place. It did quite well for a while, but as the cardboard behemoth approached the finish line, it unceremoniously sank! As the adult heat continued it was time for the emergence of the Be Afraid. The boat’s ominous name was prophetic, because it was piloted by cousins Maggie Morris and Weston Edwards. This duo, the grandchildren of Ed and Janet White, was battle-hardened from having decisively won cardboard boat races in previous years. Be Afraid handily won the first adult heat and when it was time for the championship heat, Weston Edwards decided to go it alone in order to streamline and reduce the weight . . . and he powered to a very decisive victory. Wow; exciting stuff. Now you have a blow by blow account of the 2021 installment of the fabulous Lake Viking event. Check out the accompanying pictures.
