Time flies when we are having fun, but where has the summer gone?
The S.T.A.R.S. Club has experienced several successful months so far, July will be one to remember.
The Jason Scribben Memorial 3 on 3 Volleyball Tournament was held again, and had a somewhat predicable conclusion with the Ruebel family once again victorious, and we look forward to continuing the tradition again next year.
We had a first at Roaming Shores with the Stellar Copters rides, and more than 130 riders got a high-level look at Lake Roaming Rock, and the rooves of their individual homes.
The STARS Club is planning to repeat this adventure in October, and let everyone have an opportunity to see the colorful fall foliage, before the leaves turn brown and fall, and we have to rake them.
Following the helicopter rides, we observed a “Spectacular Fireworks Display” that seemed to set the skies over Lake Roaming Rock on fire. We hope everyone enjoyed the show, and will send in additional contributions that will allow us to fund a similar event next year.
Swimmers utilizing Beach One are really enjoying the use of the huge new float, which was donated by the retiring Promotion Club, has brought joy and excitement to the swimmers, and will continue to provide great entertainment for many years to come.
August plans are being made for a Wine Tasting Social and a Casino Night at the Clubhouse. The Casino Night is being planned in cooperation with the Shores Hold’em Club.
STARS appreciates your interest and generous donations which are important to the Club’s ability to function now and into the future.
President, STARS Club
Please feel free to bring an appetizer to share or your own wine to sample. Hope to see you there!

Independence Day Weekend is always a busy time here in the Shores. Despite the 50th last year being the biggest ever, this year was no exception.
The Festivities began on Saturday, July 1st with helicopter rides over the lake provided by Stellar Copters. Captain John Marstellar provided some of the best views of the lake throughout the day to many brave passengers, young and old. Here’s some video in case you would either like to relive the moment, or didn’t have the opportunity.
Also on Saturday was the Annual Jason Scribben Memorial Volleyball Tournament. The game is played in the memory of Jason P. Scribben, a senior at Grand Valley High School and died in a boating accident on Lake Roaming Rock on July 4th, 1998. The winners this year (once again) were the Ruebel family.
The day capped off with a bang… literally… with the Annual Roaming Shores Fireworks Display. I know we say this every year, but this show was truly one of the best ever! Thank you to everyone who contributed towards making the fireworks show a reality that keeps getting better year after year!
