The Club sponsored the Kids Fishing Day and had a free seminar for kids on how to fish. The Club is saddened by the passing of Ed Baitt who ran the club for many years. Ed did a great job and was a friend to many. We would like to thank all of the people that joined the club. And a special thanks to Members that don’t fish, but supported the Club.
Our next meeting will be Monday, April 9th, 2018 at 7pm at the Clubhouse. Have a great winter!
It was a very busy first year for Roaming Shores’ newest club, the STARS (Social Times At Roaming Shores). In 2017 alone, the Club hosted Winter Fest, Dog Training Classes, Swim Lessons, the Community Garage Sale, the Mini Triathlon, a Reverse Raffle, Helicopter Rides, a Wine Tasting, and Casino Night. Additionally, the Club has taken on the responsibilities of funding and hosting the Annual Fireworks Display.
We would love to continue hosting these events and adding more as time goes on, but we can’t do it alone! We need volunteers to help plan and run events in order for them to come to fruition and be successful.
The Club will be meeting next on Wednesday, November 8th at 6pm at the Clubhouse. We will be planning events for 2018 during this meeting. If you’re interested in learning what the club is all about, or would like to share your ideas, or if you would like to get involved, this would be an excellent time to do so. Please mark your calendars!

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!
