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. Tony Gronniger 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.”

Preston reeled in a big one!

9-year-old Preston Hogan at lot 628 reeled himself in a 17-pound monster right here at Lake Viking!

Approval of Last Month’s Minutes Mark Leggett motioned to approve last month's minutes. Celeste Arnmanas seconded; motion passed. Handbook Committee - No report Finance Committee We met on September 9th on Microsoft Teams, with 7 members present as well as Tony Gronniger as an observer. In the review of financial statements, the numbers continue to be positive. Shad Mort reported on the road expenses he has requested price quotes on 6,8,10 miles of chip and seal for the year. On capital expenditures, Marvin McNabb reported that we now have 3 QuickBook licenses to accommodate office staff, as well as the purchase and installation of the new color printer for the office. Representatives from Westbrook CPA firm met with office staff on September 1st for an update. Westbrook asked about our parameters for capital expenditures and the committee agreed starting in 2022, only expenses more than $2,000 will be a capital expense. This does not mean everything over $2,000 has to be a capital expense--the limit is to regard the purchase of equipment etc. The Finance Committee also voted to advise Westbrook of our preference that our investment funds will be reflected on the financial statements as the net invested amount … as opposed to the floating value, which changes every day. Morgan Stanley, there have been two debit transfers from the fund to Selby Construction for the silt basin work. The VVA should be making a few more withdrawals for Selby Construction, and to see us through on operational expense until the 2022 annual billing. I (Troy Lesan) have replaced Sally Zerbe as an authorized individual for transactions, and the Assistant Administrator at Westbrook has taken over my slot with account view capabilities. I am also happy to announce the committee agreed to accept Paula Hepinstall as a new member on the Finance Committee. Troy motioned to approve Paula Hepinstall as a member of the Finance Committee, Allan Salvin seconded; motion passed. Congratulations Paula! Campground: Finally, after much discussion and analysis of a complete collection of data, the Finance Committee approved that the following motion is made: The Finance Committee motioned that the BOD approves the 2022 campground fee across-the-board $140/spot increase at all campgrounds. Funds will be used for line-item expenditures, to build a surplus, but not for capital expenditures. Mark Leggett seconded; after Board discussion, motion passed. Strategic Planning Committee The committee meets quarterly as a group. I (Tony Gronniger) submitted a couple of months ago the Board’s goals for this year. The committee added these to the current Strategic Plan, which I will share with the Board next week.

VVA Board of Directors Meeting

Safety Committee Mark Leggett reported that the title for the new jet ski trailer was taken to the office on Friday. Dredge Committee Mark Leggett reported that 50% of silt basin construction is completed. Lake Manager Report - Shad Mort 1. Portable speed bumps: are currently difficult to get. Last month we tabled to discuss placement and quantity. If it is okay with the Board, I would like to table until next month to discuss further. 2. Chip and Seal Operations: Billy and I went around last week and noticed a few spots that needed it. Last year we did about 4.5 miles; this year we requested price quotes on 6, 8, & 10 miles of chip and seal. From the west end of the dam to the east side of the Altamont entrance is 6 miles. For 6 miles is $151,000; for 8 miles is $196,000; for 10 miles is $238,00. We have used $100,000 of the $190,000 allocated for patching operations. If we take the Building Permit money, which is $77,000, that would give us a total of $167,000 to spend on chip and seal operations, which would get us about 7 miles for $175,000. I was hoping to get these 6 miles taken care of, then jump over to the Garney Tract and run through there about another mile to meet with what we finished last year. That would get us about 65% throughout the lake. I will reach out to them and see what deals they can do for us. I think if we finish the east side of the lake, that will get us ahead for the next couple of years. We targeted that the next 4 years we would get everything taken care of, then start over again. 3. Special Lake Projects: We currently have

the excavator at Community Area 7, below Campground 1, cleaning out the cove. We are going to move across the road from the maintenance barn and clean out that end-cove there. We’ll also do work at lot number 8. The heavy rains this spring hurt us a little, but we are on track to get it cleaned up before winter. 4. Labor Day weekend recap - We had a pretty busy weekend, with no major accidents. 5. We received a letter from Bob Noel about his cross tube that flows under the road and onto his property. The round tube is 36” and he wants to band onto it and extend down with a 24” tube. I have always had the band on must be the same size tube, to prevent any damage to the road or other property. The Board discussed; Mark Leggett motioned that he can band on to the 36” tube with a 24” tube with a signed contract stating that if any damage happens to the road, the owner will take responsibility for any & all damage, seconded by Allan Slavin; motion passed with a three to one vote. Financials Mark Leggett motioned to approve the financial statements, Troy Lesan seconded; motion passed. Guest Time 1. Micha Stubblefield: was on the Agenda, but was not present at the Board meeting. 2. Joe Jacobson: Needs to extend his dock further from the shoreline if needed, to fit his new dock lift to go with his new boat. Marvin McNabb reported that the Building Committee reviewed all documentation sent in by Mr. Jacobson. There is plenty of space to move it out if needed. Mark


Leggett motioned to move forward with the Building Committee’s recommendation to allow it, Allan Slavin seconded; motion passed. 3. Joyce Dooley: I have received an infraction ticket for a vicious dog. The dog has been removed from the premises and will not be coming back. Mark Leggett motioned to stand with the Infraction Committee to dismiss the ticket, Celeste Armanees seconded; motion passed. Board Discussion 1. Infraction Committee will issue infractions for not paying for trash service by October 1st. 2 .Marvin McNabb 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 Association-provided dumpsters. Board discussed and no second motion was made. Adjourn Tony Gronniger moved to adjourn to Executive Session to discuss personnel and Board organizational matters. Marvin McNabb seconded; motion passed.

Stay Safe … FASTER … a new acronym to help you remember stroke symptoms. •

Face: Ask the person to smile and look for drooping or numbness on one side of the face.

Arms: Ask the person to hold up both arms for a ten count. If one arm falls, they could be experiencing a stroke.

Now that is an authentic garage sale.

Stability: Difficulty maintaining balance, trouble walking and loss of coordination are all possible stroke symptoms.

Talking: Changes in speech including slurring, garbled and

nonsensical words often occur. Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence like “The sky is blue.” •

Eyes: Visual changes occur suddenly and can include complete

vision loss in one eye, double vision and partial loss of vision in one or both eyes. •

Hidden treasures in unsuspecting places.

React: Call 911 immediately if you recognize any of the above

symptoms. Call even if the symptoms go away and try to remember when they first began. Identifying and reacting to stroke symptoms quickly is crucial to achieving proper treatment for an individual experiencing a stroke.

2021 Lake Viking Scavenger Hunt By Troy Lesan

There is a definite skill-set involved with winning a Lake Viking Scavenger Hunt . . . and I have no idea what it is. I always get a list of the properties in advance for pictures. Otherwise I would never have found some of these items – like a small tea-cup painted on a wooden sign in a community area, a picture of bagpipes displayed on a drainage pipe, and, as always, every year, the elusive Waldo of Where’s Waldo fame. My personal favorite was the clue that stated “Led Zeppelin was climbing these.” Answer: an old set of stairs from a porch with the sign “Heaven” perched at the top. The beauty of the Lake Viking Scavenger Hunts has always been the ingenious clues thought up by the organizers John and Janet Yuratovku. The winners of this year’s hunt were the “Defending Champs” team of the Odettes and the McAninnys. They scored an impressive 28 out of 30 possible points! Looks like they will be able to use that team name again next year. Great job by all concerned!

Did you find the stairway to Heaven? Truly Led Zeppelin inspired.

Stay Safe … Fall is right around the corner. Here are a few tips to remember when burning leaves … 15 MPH • Do not burn when winds are in excess of 15 mph.** • Do not leave the area unattended while the leaf pile is burning. ** • Plan to burn on a vegetation‐free, level patch of dirt no more than 4’x4’ and at least 50’ from any occupied dwelling. Try to find an area free of tree branches and power lines. [Please refer to the LV 2020 Handbook for Campground Rules] • Burn piles increase the level of carbon monoxide in the air. Note: If you receive enough exposure this may reduce the amount of oxygen in your blood and lungs, especially if you suffer from a respiratory condition. • Leaves should be dry. Wet foliage burns slower and produces more smoke. • Light a small branch or sheet of paper with a match and place it among the leaves to ignite the pile. NEVER use fire starters or gasoline. • Keep a garden hose, shovel, rake and/or fire extinguisher ready in case of an emergency. • Douse area thoroughly with water when finished. • If your fire gets out of control, call the fire department immediately! • Consider using a burn barrel. ** LV 2020 Handbook Rules and Regulations

The good news is that Ryan put the lunker back in the lake, and he’s still out there for someone else to catch!

Area 51- Lake Viking Version Photo & article by Troy Lesan What do you think of whenever you hear about Area 51? Extra Terrestrial Activity? Aliens? Top Secrets? Maybe you even hear the Twilight Zone music in your head (for those of you who are old enough to remember the Twilight Zone Music). Simply stated Area 51 conjures up imagery of that kind whether deserved or not. And, by the way, don’t try and go there. It’s a top-secret testing area of a huge Air Force Base in Nevada, definitely closed to the public. Details of the facility's operations are unknown –which adds to the mystique. But not to worry, Lake Viking has its own Area 51. It’s located on lot 51, of course, owned by Jerry and Melissa Goehring. Unlike the Nevada site, Lake Viking’s Area 51 is a place anyone can find. If travelling by road, just look for the little space alien statuette on the mailbox. If on the water, there’s the brightly colored “can’t miss” mural on a large wall facing the lake. Every once in a while Jerry and Melissa have get-togethers, where they serve things like Galaxy dogs, Moon pies, Milky Ways, Starbursts, and Alien cupcakes which adds to the Extra Terrestrial theme. Yep, Lake Viking’s Area 51 is becoming a famous curiosity in its own right.

Host Jerry Goehring will take visitors on a guided tour of Area 51.

Lake Viking News The Lake Viking Trash $%!#

By Troy Lesan

Note the curious title to this article. The symbols are an invitation to fill in your own word. Choose a word - any word. Let the imagination run wild. Use a word that you always wanted to use like . . . kerfuffle, debacle, or brouhaha? At times any of those words were applicable. Thankfully the situation is getting better. To begin, a brief history: In the twenty years that Shirley and I have lived on the lake, I can think of several trash disposal providers: Waste Management, Advanced Disposal, Superior, Onyx, Veolia. The changes have come mostly from one company buying out another – a case of the bigger fish swallowing the smaller one – and during the procession of providers, the trash problem has grown. This can be verified by a comparative analysis of VVA budgets. 2017 was the first year that Trash Expense appeared among line items on our financial documents. Trash expense was growing due to charges for increased loads being hauled from Association and the VVA felt it was necessary to document. During that year, $13,000 was budgeted for trash expense. In 2018 stronger measures began. After many complaints from Association Members and pictures of overflowing dumpsters at Beach Two appearing on Lake Viking Facebook, it was apparent that there was a problem of the privilege of Association Dumpsters being grossly abused. Finally the dumpster at Beach Two was removed in an attempt to channel trash traffic to the designated area east of the Association burn pile where dumpsters have always been provided. Also, with the trash problem getting more and more out of control, infractions were issued to membership for non-compliance to the rule of TRASH DISPOSAL found on page 39 in the 2021 VVA Handbook. Not a particularly popular move among some Association Members – a few unhappy campers- but this, after all, is the saga of The Lake Viking Trash #$%!*. By 2019, due to stringent enforcement, the line item expense for trash disposal was still hovering a bit above the $13,000, but then came year


2020! We can all remember 2020. It was a year of change at Lake Viking. With COVID-19 numbers appearing, and people social distancing, quarantining, and isolating, activity on the lake skyrocketed. Lake Viking seemed the perfect place to get away. Suddenly the busy boating season was starting in April rather than late May. Traffic on the roads increased, demand for real estate spiked, but alas, so did trash disposal at the Association Dumpsters. In 2020 the line item expense on the VVA budget for trash went up to $17,260. Also, in 2020, there was another change. Trash collection from the current provider suddenly became more irregular and sporadic. Each week, it was something different, truck breakdowns, late collections, later collections, and often times trash collections became a two and three day endeavor when it had always been previously handled on Monday. Who knows, one might even suspicion that the irregular service was intentional. With the trash contract coming up for renewal in 2021, maybe the provider was not particularly anxious to renew with a customer offering the continuous challenge of overflowing and mountainous piles of trash at the Association dump. The situation was truly a #$%!*. Enter Mark Veraguth, an Association Member, who also happens to run a trash service called Affordable Disposal. The company offered the VVA a reasonable contract and the Board of Directors agreed. Now, collection occurs promptly every Monday morning beginning at 7AM. Of course, there have been a few bugs to iron out – especially with changes in billing, but good service has been restored. Now the problem is that Affordable Disposal is being introduced to the Lake Viking Trash #$%!* still there are the mountains of trash at the Association Dumpster requiring additional trips. Worse are the continued abuses at curbside. When the new agreement was executed, terms were published in the Lake Viking News, on the Lake Viking website, and even on Lake Viking Facebook. Those terms specified a five bag limit! Some Association Members are leaving 10, 15, and even 20 bags at their properties. Folks who leave extra trash should expect extra billing. The terms of the agreement specify “no mattresses, and appliances.” Mark may pick those things up but, understandably, at an additional charge, call Affordable for special pickup. Their number has been published. Lastly, dumping from outside sources who are not Association Members is endemic. If you are out and about, and see unauthorized dumping, don’t hesitate to jot down a license plate number and report. The bottom line is that Affordable Disposal is taking care of the VVA, and we need to take care of them. If Draconian measures are required such as the issuance of more infractions or photographs by the Safety Department, so be it. The Board of Directors is firm on this matter. We are weary of being buried in The Lake Viking Trash #$%!*.
