Plan to Attend the first ever… Roaming Shores Family Water Safety Event!!
Be at the Clubhouse Pavilion, Beach 1 and get some tips on how to enjoy fun on and in the water while understanding how and why to stay safe. Our motto… Enjoy the Lake!! Stay Safe!
Our newest club, the Roaming Shores Community Preparedness Club, is sponsoring this event. It is open to all ages. We are never too old or too young to be reminded of how to respect both the joys, and the dangers of playing (recreating) on or near the water.
Come hear a presentation by the ODNR. Our own Lake Safety Team will be there as well as our Pool Safety Advisor. Some tips on how to keep your four legged family safe will also be provided! Tell your friends and neighbors or better yet bring them along with you. Learn, be prepared, meet some fellow boaters and water lovers!!!
There will even be some entertainment for small children. Yep… some snacks as well!!
No reservations are required and this event will take place rain or shine!! Let’s hope it is the shine part, but just in case we will be under cover so the rain will not stop us!
Hope to see many of my fellow friends and neighbors at this event. You have nothing to lose since there is no admission charge, but you have everything to gain if it helps you keep yourself and your family a bit safer while you enjoy our beautiful lake and pools this summer!!!

Mechanical devices can be made of any other material (wood, metal, plastic, etc.).
Mechanical devices can not add to the reinforcement of the boat.
- The entire boat hull and seating must be made of corrugated cardboard. Any thickness of corrugated is permissible. Corrugated bonded to other substances like vinyl, coated with wax, etc. may not be used. Plastic corrugated material, fiber board tubes, angle board, etc. may not be used in the hull construction. However, any material may be used for the superstructure, such as masts, stacks, outriggers, etc.
- The boat must be constructed with tape only, such as duct tape, cellophane tape or other. Tape must be within four inches of any seam or joint and may not wrap the entire boat. Adhesives and glues are only permissible on the seams and joints.
- Any paintable “one part” substance may be used as waterproofing. No epoxy glue, fiberglass resin, or other “two Part’ finishes. No urethane-based products or tar substances such as “Flex Steel” may be used.
- The hull cannot be wrapped in plastic or any other material.

- The judges reserve the right to divide entrants into individual heats based on the number of boats registered. Total elapsed time will determine the winner.
- Boats which are deemed not to comply with the above rules will be allowed to race but will not be eligible for the timed races awards with the exception of the Most Creative Award. The judge’s decisions are final.

The Ashtabula County Metroparks is building a new parking lot and trailhead facility for improved access to the Western Reserve Greenway Trail in the Village of Roaming Shores. The asphalt parking area will provide parking spaces along Rome-Rock Creek Road. A paved path will connect to the Western Reserve Greenway Trail. The Ashtabula County Metroparks worked to secure state funding for the project and negotiated a lease to utilize land owned by the Village of Roaming Shores for construction of the new facility.
If you have any questions or for more information, contact the Metroparks Office at 440.576.0717
