Although change is not always fun, it is a good idea to at least explore your options for next year. You want to make sure your current coverage is still the best place for 2023. Where to start? Check your mail. Starting in October, insurance companies are required to send you an Annual No-

tice of Change/Evidence of Coverage form. Although it might look intimidating, it is a good idea to check it over for changes to co-pays and outof-pocket costs. Also check your mailbox for your Medicare & You Handbook. They will usually be mailed in late September but if you haven’t received one, you can call 1-800-Medicare to get a copy or go online to download one.

matter how busy you are cheering on the Chiefs, take a little time to check your Medicare options. It can make a huge impact in your pocketbook and your mental health.

1. Definition: A wakesurf boat is any boat designed or altered to intentionally create a large wake for surfing. This typically includes the drive system, apparatus such as Hydrofoils, Trim Tabs, Wake Shapers and Ballasts -- whether factory-installed or aftermarket.

Celeste Armanees (Board contact for Handbook Committee) presented on 3 proposed Rule changes to the Handbook:

Proposed UNAUTHORIZEDrule: WATERCRAFT: Add “Grandfather clause for members prior to Sept. 21, 2022 allows up to three (3) motorized watercraft. After Sept. 21, 2022, all new members are limited to two (2) motorized watercraft. When a current lot owner sells or otherwise transfers the property including watercraft to new owners, then the limit of two (2) watercraft takes effect upon sale or transfer of the property.”

Continued on page 17 Continued from page 1



Then after the above new intro to the paragraph, change rest of paragraph & its examples to: “three (3)” change to “two (2) motorized watercraft.”

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

Stewed Apples Fruit Crisp Mixed

The 1st Rule to vote on … was to finalize the Wake Surf Rule in Handbook at end of Water Rules & Regulations section (pg. 31). At last month’s Board meeting, we approved a new Wake Surfing rule (in non-boldface below), and we promised to follow up with a few clarifications/tweaks (in boldface below) that we’ll vote on today. The changes to the Wake Surfing Rule are: #1 added a definition, #3 on surfer safety, and #6 on

2. # watercraft per member, and 3. 911 Address change.

Board Discussion

4. 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 counter-clockwise consistent with normal lake traffic.

Rule to vote on … was the number of watercraft per member household, to change from current 3 to proposed 2. Grandfather clause for current members to keep 3 permanently (Handbook pg. 27-28).

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

-- There was an accident with our dump truck, which became mired then rolled. The damage from the accident is $18,000. We have a $1,000 deductible on our insurance policy & we will be purchasing the wrecked truck back for $1,500. So the insurance check for the claim will be net of the deductible & buy-back amount for the wrecked truck or $15,500. We will be fixing this truck to use to transport dredge material across the road.

Intro: Main purpose is for members’ safety—instead of a sign that currently reads e.g. “222 111” this rule would require the word “Lot” to precede the lot’s numbers, so easier for emergency personnel to quickly distinguish the street number from the lot number, in an emergency situation. This would require some members to add the word “Lot” to their sign. Viking Valley Association Ph: 660-322-9001 L ake Viking News September 2022 17

Continued from page 14 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: 1. Definition: A wakesurf boat is any boat designed or altered to intentionally create a large wake for surfing. This typically includes the drive system, apparatus such as Hydrofoils, Trim Tabs, Wake Shapers and Ballasts -- whether factory-installed or aftermarket. 2. 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. 3.

Discussion ensued and Kenny Southwick, lot 381, commented he did not think this was fair to not involve lake owners in this decision, as he felt it could lower their property values.
