VVA Board Minutes “whenever a person leaves a boat and enters the water, a red or orange flag measuring 12” square must be displayed on the boat so that it is visible in all directions. Phil Stockard moved to strike the word “that.” Flint Hibler seconded; motion carried. Page 32 Connection to Sewer • Campers connected to the association’s sewer system are required to have hard piping. Flexible tube is not allowed for that connection. • Campers not connected to the association sewer system may use flexible tubing for the transfer of any waste water into a portable holding tank or transfer type trolley. • Flexible tubing cannot remain permanently. It must be disconnected once transfer is complete. • Discharge of any waste water to the ground or any nearby watershed/creek is prohibited. Phil Stockard moved to accept the rewrite of this rule as stated above. Troy Lesan seconded; motion carried.

Page 32 Improper use of Campfire - It is prohibited for any person to cause or allow the location of any campfire to be closer than ten (10) feet to any camping unit and ten (10) feet from any source of propane. All fires must be contained within a fire ring, pit or similar structure with a maximum diameter of 4 feet. Phil Stockard moved to approve the changes as written above. Mike Booth seconded; motion carried. Page 36 Trespass - ENTRY UPON LOTS TO CARRY OUT ASSOCIATION BUSINESS - Notwithstanding any other rule or regulation of the Association, Members of the various committees which are called for in its ByLaws and the agents of such committees and the officers and agents of the Association’s Board of Directors are hereby granted and given the limited right to enter upon any and all of the lots properties within the Valkyrie Valley Subdivision for purposes necessary to carry out their duties and functions. Phil Stockard moved to strike the words “of the lots” and add the word “properties.” Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Page 38 Burning - There shall be no unattended burning (except for Maintenance Dept.) or when the wind is in excess of 15 mph. All campfires must be extinguished when left unattended. Phil Stockard moved to make the above changes. Mike Booth seconded; motion carried. Finance Committee: Troy Lesan wanted to thank the 50th Anniversary Committee for their hard work and putting on a great celebration. Troy commented that the Finance Committee is already working on a financial plan to present at next year’s annual meeting, a plan that can explain our finances better to the membership. Troy also wanted to reiterate that any member that wanted to discuss our finances is welcome to call the office and set up a time for this. There are people on the Finance Committee that would be available to discuss any questions they may have. Troy reported that in some areas of the budget, we are holding well, such as maintenance, roads and special lake. The safety wages have increased due to demand for more presence. Overall wages are down somewhat. The committee is still looking into a segregation of financial duties. Missy Leggett and Glenn Miller are getting quotes from outside sources and taking bids. The bids so far range from $300 to $1000 per month. Strategic Committee: There was no report. Sherry Parkhurst asked Missy Leggett where the Ad Hoc Committee was at in regards to the incorporation. Missy commented that so far the committee has been formed and they are going to put together an outline of things that need to be done. Missy also said she may be going to the courthouse soon to gather information. Missy will keep Sherry apprised of what the committee is doing. Activities Committee: Mary Hibler reported that everyone on the Activities Committee had a great time at the 50th celebration and proud to be a part of the organizing committee. The Activities Committee is once again doing “Yard of the Month.” (continued from page 1)

The fall garage sale is coming up on September 23. Mary has been asked to plan an event for September 30. Levi Garrison and Sons from Hamilton would like to come up and do a beer tasting. The Activities Committee will host the event and serve brats with the beer. They will need confirmation from the Association that we in fact own the clubhouse for licensing purposes. Flint Hibler made a motion that Levi Garrison and Sons provide the Association with their liability insurance and liquor license. Mike Booth seconded; motion carried. Mary also reported the donation can for the clubhouse renovation took in $225 and the committee sold 244, 50th anniversary shirts and have 80 on order. Building Committee: Flint Hibler reported there were 12 new permits in the month of July. Fire Department: Roger Lankford reported there was one 911 medical call last month. The August Fire meeting was rescheduled for August 26, due to the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Last month the yellow striping was redone in front of the firehouse and safety office areas. In addition, blue striping was applied to three parking spaces, including one in front of the office and two in front of the clubhouse. The pumpers annual testing has been done and a transfer valve was found to be inoperable and the part is obsolete. Campground Committee: Mary Hibler reported they are in the process of getting bids for upgrading the campground electrical work. Lake Committee: Mike Krehbiel reported the committee had completed their water inspections and about 25 letters have been sent. The Lake Committee is concerned about silt fence infractions and will be watching this very close. Cemetery Committee: No report. Infraction Committee: Phil Stockard reported the infraction meeting had been rescheduled for August 19. There are 20 tickets for the committee to review. Phil thanked the Safety Department for their attention to trespassers and keeping track of these. Zebra Mussel Initiative: The gates at the ramp have been dropped. There have been some issues with cards not working, but we are looking into these problems. Lake Manager’s Report Dredge: Shad Mort reported the dredge is running, but we did have to pull the head off and change the drive motors. Shad also commented that last week we had Snyder and Associates come in to look at our silt structures as well as one of our own members, Bob Hayes, who is a civil engineer. These engineers and Shad are working on a plan for the future of our silt containment. Long Reach: We have just completed digging out the North Yacht Club arm in front of lots 299306. Road Work 2017: Shad reported we have been working on patching and may do one more load of mix. Road work will start shortly after Labor Day this year.

Financials: Troy Lesan moved to approve the financials. Phil Stockard seconded; motion carried. Board Action 1. John Cowan: • John expressed his concern about the increased traffic that has been created by the ATV track on the west side of the dam. • John also wanted to address the Board about adding to his two-car detached garage. There is a pad of concrete on the end that could easily be converted to a third bay. Flint Hibler explained the rule in the book allows for 720 sq. ft. maximum for a detached garage and that is what John’s existing garage measures. Adding on to that garage would exceed the maximum allowed, unless he wants to build a breezeway between his house and garage. If it is attached to the house he can build on and be in compliance as long as he retains the 10’ easement. The Board will take this under advisement and get back to John at a later date. 50th Anniversary: Mark Leggett reported on a very successful 50th Anniversary Celebration. He thanked the Board of Directors for manning the hospitality tent and all the members that helped with the planning and setup. Mark person-

ally thanked Jodi Manahan, Troy Lesan, Resa Wiltse, Gail Bush, Mary Hibler, Tony & Lana Southwick and Jana Hanson for all their hard work and effort to make this celebration a success. Most of all, Mark wanted to thank Shad Mort. He realized Shad has a job to do, but he stepped up and put a lot of effort in this celebration, especially looking for missing time capsules. Mark wanted to look back at the 40th celebration and asked the Board what they thought was the biggest difference between the 40th and 50th. After several good guesses, Mark’s reply was the fact that the 40th cost the association over $22,000. This year the Board allocated $2500 and the rest came from 23 corporate sponsors that donated $500 each. Mark has kept a binder of everything the 50th Committee discussed, all their meeting notes, receipts and sponsors. Mark continued with the next step of putting our 50th Anniversary book together. It started out to be a 16-page book and now it is up to 40. Mark is relying on Troy Lesan to sell additional ads to put in the back of the book. If anyone is interested, they may purchase a $100, $50 or a $25 ad to get their name in the book. Mark estimated about 200+ people down below Friday night where the band was playing. By Saturday afternoon, two of the food trucks were sold out of food and the remaining trucks had an average wait time of 30 minutes. Also, Saturday afternoon was the talent show and magic show and again 200+ people were in attendance. Saturday night was no exception—there was a tremendous crowd again. Mark has heard many great comments and even someone wanting to finance more events like this. The last thing Mark commented about was what the committee would do with any profits they make, which he estimates to be approximately $7,500. Several suggestions from the committee are: new HVAC for the clubhouse, plaque for the corporate sponsors, renovation of the shelters on beach 1, addition to the dock on beach 1, and possibly an amphitheater. Troy Lesan commented he has a signup sheet for anyone wanting to buy an ad for the book. Ramp Gating: We anticipated having some problems with this operation and we have, but we will get it figured out. Boat Length: Shad Mort brought up the issue of boat length on our lake. Our handbook states 24foot maximum length. Shad would like the Board to review this rule because he believes this will become a problem in the future as boats are getting bigger. The Strategic Committee has been gathering information on the capacity of our lake and the number of boats our lake can handle safely. Jon Allen asked the Strategic Committee to include boat size in their study. Fire Truck: Roger Lankford brought this up earlier in the meeting and Shad wanted to reiterate the fact that our pumper truck has issues that cannot be fixed. The parts are obsolete, so we need to look at all our options as far as replacing this truck. Adjourn: Troy Lesan moved to adjourn into Executive Session at 7:50 p.m. Mike Krehbiel seconded; motion carried. Attendance: Mary Hibler, lot 183; Doug & Resa Wiltse, lot 494; Tony Gronniger, lot 2281/2282; Robert Hayes, lot 389; Ron & Kim Spidle, lot 341; Dennis Schlaiss, lot 1080; Nathan & Amanda King, lot 2149; Ruth & Vern Harnapp, lot 165; Kyle Parkhurst, lot 20/21; Jerry Carter, lot 486; Don Leeper, lot 22; Donna Redden, lot 1280; John White, lot 669; Norman & Marian Larason, lot 917; Sherry Krehbiel, lot 559; Len Zalenski, lot 364; Linda Allen, lot 65; Mark & Missy Leggett, lot 72; Cindy Wolfe, lot 580; Terry Shank, lot 489; John Cowan, lot 912-913; Tony Southwick, lot 1594; Roger & Maggie Lankford, lot 644/Fire Dept.; Shad Mort, Lake Manager; Sally Zerbe, lot 2528/Office. Let the record show that these minutes are a record of the business transacted at this meeting and a sampling of the discussions. Comments and discussions are not reflected in whole or as actual quotations in the minutes, nor do they reflect all comments by members.

Lake Viking celebrates 50th!


Lake Viking News


By Troy Lesan Photos by Jeff Hower, Rob Provance, Cindy Barker & Jodie Manahan

There were many activities at the busy, fun-filled and celebratory golden anniversary event at Lake Viking on Aug. 11-12. They included an anvil shoot, a ribbon-cutting, bicycle race, cardboard boat race, music from four bands, a boat parade, a water sports showcase event, food trucks, raffle drawings, a cornhole challenge, a talent and family magic show, and games and face-painting for the kids. Hats off to Mark Leggett and his committee for an excellent job in planning, and thanks to all of the Association Members for the strong show of support in attending the celebration . . . and the weather couldn’t have been better. It was a tremendous event from beginning to end. The pictures which are printed throughout this edition of Lake Viking News will tell the story.

Larry Tague, Randy Tague, and Phil Tate – representing Lake Viking Marine ownership from day one to the present year – along with Bob Hausman, served as cardboard boat race judges.

Pastor Alvin Hillman marks 90th birthday


On Aug. 13, the public was invited to the Gallatin Library to help Pastor Alvin Hillman celebrate his 90th birthday. Pastor Hillman, who resides at Lake Viking, has been an ordained minister for over 50 years. He has pastored numerous churches around Missouri and is still at it. He postponed retirement to be the pastor at Lake Viking Church for 14 years and then “deferred� retirement again to become the pastor at the Gallatin Presbyterian Church, a position at which he still serves! Try to imagine how many people that Pastor Hillman has counseled, comforted, and ministered to in what has truly been a lifetime of devoted and inspirational service.

Nobody quite knew what to expect but almost everybody now knows about the 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse. The Daviess County Library spearheaded the local focus on this historic celestial event. Using funds and expertise provided by the NASA@mylibrary program, they provided a series of stargazing and informational sessions during the weeks leading up to Aug. 21, 2017. Finally, the moment arrived. At approximately 1:08 p.m. the moon totally eclipsed the sun for over a minute here, a celestial wonder despite cloud coverage which made the quick transition from sunlight to twilight dusk less dramatic.

Great American Total Eclipse at Gallatin, MO

Solar eclipse dazzles young eyes “It’s getting dark…it’s getting darker…it’s dark…the street lights came on!…it’s getting lighter…it’s getting light…it’s light again…thank you, God!” So chanted some of the children at Searcy R-5 Elementary School who came out on the playground to view the Great American Solar Eclipse of Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. The sky was cloudy — it had even sprinkled rain a half hour earlier — but still the lingering darkness in the middle of a summer day was impressive in its own slightly scary, hauntingly hushed, and totally beautiful way.

North Daviess R-3 first and second graders waited patiently on the lawn to witness the eclipse

The local event was made possible by the Daviess County Library; shown are Brooke Lee, Margie Richey, Amy McMahon and Director Allison Spidle.

Solar system display helped provide a sense of space proportion

Property Owners

You are responsible for your guests and their actions. It is your responsibility to educate them on the rules and regulations of Lake Viking. Lake Viking is private property, but all lots are owned by some other individual. Please do not drive or ride ATV vehicles or bicycles on neighboring lots, or walk across lots to fish or use others’ property without first getting the property owner’s permission.

Fishery Guidelines

Bass: Release all bass 12” to 19”. Fishermen can keep one bass per day of 19” or longer. Crappie: Keep all crappie caught, within the state limit, which is 30 per day. Walleye: Fisherman can keep Walleye at least 21” in length, release all catches under 21”.

Mowing Regulations

You are required to have your lot mowed by May 1st, June 1st and September 1st of each year. If you do not keep your lot mowed, or hire a contract mower, the Association will mow it, and bill you $60.00 for each mowing. The Association does not want to be in the mowing business. Please self-mow your lot or hire a contract mower to do it for you. All contract mowers are required to submit a customer list to the Association office. If you are not on their initial list, you may be accidentally billed by the Association, so please contact your mower early. The below listed mowers have registered with the Association office and can usually be reached in the evening. There may be other mowers who advertise in the Lake Viking News.
