VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting Call to Order Board President Tony Gronniger, lot 2281, called the meeting to order at 2:02 p.m., held in the upper level of the clubhouse. Board members present were: Allan Slavin, lot 181; Doug Winter, lot 46; Troy Lesan, lot 576; Celeste Armanees, lot 62. Not present were Board members: Marvin McNabb, lot 28; Mike Booth, lot 1259. Troy Lesan led the group in prayer. Cathy Poindexter led the Pledge of Allegiance. Tony Gronniger read the Lake Viking Mission Statement. Approval of Minutes Celeste Armanees moved to approve the minutes of May’s Board meeting. Doug Winter seconded; motion passed. COMMITTEE REPORTS: Handbook Committee Celeste Armanees reported: The new ‘22 Handbook is at the printer & can be picked up in the Office in late July. Finance Committee Doug Winter reported on the following items: • Morgan Stanley: Morgan Stanley accounts are in good shape overall. As you recall, due to the extremely volatile stock market lately, we moved almost all of our stock market investments into more stable Money Market accounts, to alleviate further losses & preserve value—except $145,887 remains in a stock market account, which is down $4,100 YTD. Paula Hepinstall (Finance Committee Chair) clarified that this $4,100 is UNrealized losses, if & when this stock were to be sold in the current “down” stock market, but instead we are waiting for the market to stabilize before selling. • Sally Zerbe asked about Morgan Stanley buckets 4 & 5, as these are new on the financial statements. Troy Lesan responded that buckets 4 & 5 were created by Westbrook CPAs for record-keeping purposes (since we withdrew our stock market monies, except for this

$145,000 amount we put into other less-risky stock market funds, so simply re-named these “new” stock funds as buckets 4 & 5). • Sally Zerbe asked, what are undeposited funds? Cathy Poindexter answered that the credit card payments are swept into the books once a month, so are not deposited daily like cash/checks received in the Office are. • Doug Winter reported that “S” lot #101 sold--proceeds will be used to improve the beaches. There is one additional “S” lot #131 not sold during the LV members’ bidding period, so will now be offered for sale to the public through a realtor. • Doug indicated the overall budget is better than expected. Revenues are slightly below budget projections, due to delayed payments of current-year lake dues.

the committee has reviewed 17 permits, and 3 permits for houses.

Strategic Planning Committee Tony Gronniger reported: The Board has requested that the Committee generate a new 5-year plan for the Lake.

Lake Committee Troy Lesan reported: • Shoreline inspections were completed last week. • Zebra Mussel detectors have been checked; no Zebra Mussels were found. Approximately 42 Zebra Mussel detectors were put out a few years ago--30 of those remain in service. Individuals can put these in the lake themselves on their property, by cutting a 1-foot-long piece of 1” or 1½” diameter PVC pipe, then submerge the pipe 3-4” deep in the lake water. To check monthly or so for zebra mussels, simply run your hand over the pipe. Any zebra mussels will stick to the pipe & feel very rough/sharp to the touch. • Troy indicated that rip-rap rock can be added to firm up the shoreline to prevent erosion. He recommends re-evaluating to see if more rip-rap needs to be added to your shoreline.

Activities Committee Mary Hibler (Chair) reported: • The Poker Run held June 11th was much fun for the 354 persons attending, with no incidents. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this such a successful event. Monies will be used for bands at events later this year. • Mary asked the Board if a Craft Bazaar could be held on the 2nd of July in the Safety/Office parking lot, due to many recent inquiries. The Board approved. These outdoor booths will be marked with chalk. Anyone interested in having one of the total 12-15 booths available may contact the Activities Committee. • Next event is Patio Party w/ “Now & Then” band on Sat., June 25th from 8-11pm. Building Committee Allan Slavin reported: In the past month,

Fire Department Tony Gronniger reported: The Fire Dept has met, and made repairs. Testing was done. Campground Committee: Flint and Mary Hibler (Campground Managers) reported: •On the Campground Wait List are: 3 for 50-amp spaces, 6 for 30-amp spaces, and 3 for Campground #2. • New breakers have been installed, since we had problems with existing ones. • Managers expressed they want to fence around the campground dumpster. They are looking at privacy fencing for this project.

2022 Lake Viking Poker Run


Photos by Troy Lesan

Out of the many events put on by the VVA Activities Committee, the Annual Poker Runs are the biggest in scope, as the sight of lake roads and clubhouse parking lot packed with ATVs, UTVs, AWDs, and golf-carts will verify. With five stations and both a Friday evening and Saturday morning sign-in, this event requires a monumental effort by Activity Committee Volunteers, but as always they were up to the task.

Proceeds from the June 11 event enabled an $865 pot for the 50/50 drawing, as well as prize money for the winning poker hands which were drawn by Chris Wilburn first place and Mariane Hughes 2nd place and Gunnar Leach winning the 50/50 drawing with half the proceeds going to Gunnar and half being set aside for future Association Activities. Hats off once again to the Activities Committee for a wellorganized event!

With over 300 entries, there were big crowds everywhere

FYI: Reviewing Lake Viking Official Group Facebook “Policy” Here they come again

Plenty of refreshments at each of the five stations.

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.

Dredging 2022 As these pictures show, our dredge operation is up and running as of June 3. As these pictures and captions also show, this operation is a sophisticated process. We are very happy with how remarkably clean the water is in the end result. This staging process was designed by Warger Engineering, built in a 2 phase construction was by Selby Construction & VVA staff, and made possible by VVA members who provided strong support for this. The dredging season began June 6.

The new system featuring 4 separate silt basins allows water from thick waste and sludge to settle in basins before clean water goes back into the lake.

Lake Viking News

From VVA Safety Director The summer season is in full swing. In addition to the usual tasks the Safety Department conducts daily, we also stay informed on ancillary issues affecting our lake. One of the issues we monitor is the effect of waves on our shoreline. In February 2022 the University of Minnesota published the results of their study regarding wake-surf boats. The study concluded wakesurf boats require greater distances from the shoreline and docks to decrease their wake wave characteristics to levels similar to non-wake-surf boats. In brief, the number for wave dissipation on wake boats is +425 feet (either side) as compared to 200 feet for non wake boats. Double! Without doubt, larger wakes that impact the shoreline do greater damage to the shoreline. We will continue to follow this issue and present all relevant information to the board of directors. I also wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of the proper way to enter and exit coves. All the information discussed in this article can be found on page 28 of the 2021 hand-


book. Whenever you exit a cove and enter the main channel, you must make a right turn and establish your direction of travel. You are not permitted to exit a cove and continue straight across the main channel. The same thing applies to entering coves on the opposite side of the lake. You must pass the cove you desire to enter before you cross the main channel. This will allow you to join the flow of traffic prior to entering the cove. You are not permitted to cross the main channel and directly enter the cove. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the safety department. The Safety Department is looking forward to a busy and safe summer. Please help us obtain our goal of promoting voluntary compliance with the handbook.

total Infraction Tickets--2 were dismissed, 25 were litigated and assessed fines. • Revenue generated was $2,920. Dredge Committee Shawn Hepinstall reported: • Dredging started again the week of June 6th. • Shawn presented a sample of water taken during the dredging process: In a mere 4 days, the water goes from brown & muddy & sludgy … to almost clear. The heavy sludge settles to the bottom, so the cleaner water floats to the top & runs over to the next pond during this approximately 4-day process. Guest: Eagle Scout Project Presentation Beckett DuPriest (in his Eagle Scout uniform) presented to the Board & guests his proposed Eagle Scout Project. Beckett is proposing that Ripple Glass Co. place 1 of their big purple collection bins (seen all around Kansas City) to provide a glass recycling service for Lake Viking members. The collection bin would be located in the parking lot by the Safety Department, as a visible reminder for members to recycle all types of glass, clean or dirty. There will be no cost to the Lake for this service, as recycling glass is more profitable right now than recycling most other materials. Doug Winter commented that he has used Ripple Glass Recycling and they do a great job--they are a great company to work with. The Board unanimously approved the project, and thanked Beckett & the Eagle Scout program for this! Managing Director’s Report Cathy Poindexter (LV Managing Director) reported: • Several pieces of machinery no longer used by Maintenance were auctioned off at the Gallatin Industrial Park. This raised $52,000 which will be used to replace maintenance

equipment and tools as needed. Prior to the auction, a skid steer was also sold. Cathy is already adjusting insurance coverage, as these sold items are deleted from our fleet. • Cathy purchased a dock with lift for $11,000 for use by Safety. This dock will be near Community Area 16 for Safety’s 2nd boat (the smaller one). This smaller boat is used for moving pipe used in the dredging area, moving the dredge, etc. • Speed bumps have arrived & will be placed strategically around the lake to slow traffic. Signs will also be placed where the speed bumps are added. • The advertising sign at the corner of Otter & Hwy DD will need to be replaced per Cathy’s discussion with realtor David Sandy, because Kyle Parkhurst has since retired and is still shown on the sign. Cathy reported that David Sandy indicated there was some kind of cost-sharing of the sign in the past. Sally Zerbe added some helpful info from past history, stating there was originally a handshake deal between the Froman family & the Lake, in exchange for the lease on the corner. That generation has since passed and ownership is now different. Cathy will look into this. • Fireworks Display is set for July 2nd festivities. Cathy has confirmed the show date/ time with the company providing the fireworks, and the cost of the show has been paid in full. • Mowing of Association-owned lots: We are behind on mowing, as we do not have enough staff to keep up with all our lots. The Maintenance Department has Nick Walker, Monte, and Tanner King all mowing full-time, and still are not keeping up. Members have been expressing concern that they will receive Infraction Tickets for not mowing their own lots. Members have also questioned about Association lots not being mowed. The only mowing Infraction Tickets which have been issued this year have been in the Campgrounds. We do have two farmers who will be mowing and baling only the large open areas around the

Lake, for its free hay. Hence, there is no cost to the Lake for haying. • Maintenance Department has two new seasonal positions to be filled--1 full-time & 1 part-time. • Cathy reported an incident which occurred with the new Conservation Agent when he did not wait for our Safety staff to “hot wash” his boat, yet he still entered onto the lake. So his gate card has been deactivated. He is welcome on the lake, but must follow the rules (get a “hot wash”) to prevent zebra mussels from other lakes from entering our lake. •Roll-off dumpsters will be placed at beaches & campgrounds to control trash, which is currently being littered on the lake property. Approval of Financial Statements Doug Winter moved that Financial Statements be approved. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed. Guest Time a. Ryan and Erin Christensen, lot 78: Submitted a request to place an additional buoy in the water at the corner of their lot (turn-in area for the cove) for the safety of children. Often they have many children in the water around their dock. But the way the curve around their lot is situated, the corner is cut too sharply and could result in a child being injured. A motion was made by Troy Lesan to allow placement of the additional buoy. Seconded by Allan Slavin; motion passed. b. Andy Quarnstrom, lot 373: Submitted the question, “Has any thought been given about the wakeboats and the related problems?” Tony Gronniger indicated this issue is a work in progress. Celeste Armanees stated the Board knows that wakeboats impact our members’ safety especially in narrow coves, but the Board has not yet decided the best way to address the issue. Currently there

Buddy LeeRoy Boyer, 85, of Shawnee Kansas, passed away on June 9, 2022. He was born on December 15, 1936, in rural Gilman City, Missouri to Charles H. and Alpha I. (Troxel) Boyer. Buddy was born and grew up on a farm purchased by his grandfather in 1880, making three generations of Boyers born on this farm. Ultimately, in 1949 his family moved to a farm East of Jameson, Mo and Buddy attended and graduated from Jameson School. He enlisted in the United States Air Force on July 6, 1955, serving four years, in Greenland for a portion of this time. After his enlistment was completed, he worked as an auto mechanic for a Ford dealership in Bethany, Mo., and later when residing in Hamilton Mo, he worked with Industrial Equipment Company of Chillicothe. He was respected as one of the best small engine experts in the community. In 1978 he married Jo Ann (Clevenger) Martin and continued living in Hamilton until they moved to Chillicothe Mo. Buddy retired in 1998 and moved to Lenexa, Kansas where he resided with Jo Ann until recently moving to Shawnee Ks. In 2017 Buddy sustained severe injuries from a fall from an eleven-foot deck, confining him to a wheelchair for his remaining years. Buddy loved hunting, fishing, working in the garden and watching all kinds of sports. He continued fixing all kinds of equipment for friends, family and the church. You would find him weekly mowing the church lawn in the summer or

doing handyman errands for anyone needing help. Many words describing Bud from friends and family include kind, loving, patient, helpful and faithful. All who knew him would enjoy his long stories and “Bud”isms he shared. All have benefited from his strength of character and wisdom. Buddy never complained or dwelt in self-pity for his disability but shone as an example to all what God’s grace can do in one’s life. Buddy is survived by his loving wife, Jo Ann Boyer; 5 children: Victor Boyer, Rodney Boyer, Kenny Boyer, Jennifer Franklin and Beki Krueger, 15 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren, 3 sisters: Charlene Ballenger, Kearney Mo, Nancy McNeely, Pattonsburg, Mo and Margaret Kindig, Arvada, Colorado. Buddy is preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Alpha Boyer and his daughter, Lisa Gay Feigly. Buddy had numerous connections with Lake Viking. He was employed for the Viking Valley Association in the 1980’s and 90’s and was on site when Lake Viking purchased its first dredge. At one time he had two sisters-in-law and a daughter residing at the lake, and as a result visited Lake Viking often. On boat-rides, he would often dig deep into his reservoir of “Budisms” and other stories and regale family members with many colorful and detailed recollections of Lake Viking during the early days. Buddy was loved by those who knew him and will be greatly missed.

are no restrictions on wakeboats/surfboats. Troy Lesan made a motion to restrict wakeboats to the main channel only. Motion was seconded by Doug Winter. However, this motion and second were retracted … after other members in attendance voiced their concern that if we ban wakeboats in coves, that merely means a MAJOR increase in wakeboats’ damage to shoreline for main channel lot owners & to association-owned beaches, community areas, etc. Jason McTheeney (Safety Manager) spoke of a February 2022 study done by University of Minnesota, which indicates that 500 feet MORE surface water is needed vs. traditional boats, for the waves created by wakeboats to dissipate. The energy generated by the wave is 3 times greater than a regular boat’s wave

(to support a surfer on the wave behind it). It has been shown that the increased intensity of the waves is causing expensive damage to docks & to shoreline around the lake. The question was raised asking if there could be potential damage to the dam? Jason indicated there are about 12 of these wakeboats at Lake Viking as of this year. The Board agreed this issue needs to be addressed, after further discussion. Adjourn Allan Slavin moved to adjourn to Executive Session. Seconded by Celeste Armanees; motion passed. Meeting was adjourned at 3:15pm … to discuss legal, organizational & personnel issues--especially the recent resignation of our Managing Director, effective 6/17/22.
