Swim Lessons Status


Unfortunately, due to COVID, our 2020 swim lessons had to cancel. While we have been moving forward with holding lessons for this summer, our friends (and organizers for our lessons) at the Ashtabula YMCA are facing the same staffing issues that many are this year. This may jeopardize our ability to hold lessons if there are not enough instructors or lifeguards. The Y has not been able to keep its own pool staffed full-time.

Are you willing to help with lessons? Please email me.

    Kayak/Paddleboard Safety

    By: Ellen H Petersen

    As the weather and water warm up, it’s time to get back in our kayaks and on our paddleboards into the lake and enjoy all it has to offer. When paddling on Lake Roaming Shores, it is easy to relax and take in all of the sights near the shoreline.  Because it is so soothing, it is easy to sometimes forget that there are always potential dangers in/on any kind of watercraft. Here are some basic safety rules to follow to make your time paddling fun as well as free of danger.

    Before leaving, tell someone where you are going and your expected time of return. Check your local weather forecast and be aware that conditions can change quickly. Also, check your equipment for wear and tear and do not exceed the weight capacity for your kayak or paddleboard. On a kayak, keep a small waterproof bag with a rope and a small first aid kit. Always wear a well fitted life jacket (it should fit snugly without being too tight) with a whistle.  It should always be worn, not just carried with you. It is a good habit to apply a layer of sunscreen before leaving.

    Paddle during daylight hours and check time of sunset and allow for plenty of time to return before dark. Paddle close to the shoreline and groups should travel behind one another. Situational awareness of all that is going on around you can prevent accidents from happening.  Watch out for fast moving watercraft that create wakes. If lightning or severe weather occurs, go to the shoreline and get onto land until all danger has passed. Avoid dehydration and always keep a full water bottle with you. Dress properly: light loose clothing, hat/visor, open, lightweight water shoes. Remember to use quiet voices as sound carries easily over water. Never mix drugs or alcohol with water sports.  When on a paddleboard, tether a leash to one ankle, it will keep your board from blowing away. Be sure that you know how to get back on your board from the water and practice that skill. The Roaming Shores Community Safety Preparedness will hold a kayak/paddleboard class this summer- look for announcements for when that will be held at the club house beach. Most importantly, enjoy your paddle; it is good for the body, mind and soul!

    2021 Roaming Shores 5K and 1 Mile Walk/Run

    Attention runners! The Annual Roaming Shores 5K will be held on Saturday, July 3rd beginning at 8am at the Clubhouse! This will be the same day as the Fireworks, and the Jason Scribben Memorial Volleyball Tournament, and the STARS Cornhole Tournament. Save the date!!

    **New for 2021** We have added a fun 1 Mile Walk/Run around the Boulevard which will begin as soon as the last 5K runner leaves the start line. The 1 Mile Walk/Run is only $10!

    2020’s race was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID, but thanks to the efforts of our race timer, Stasny Road Racing working with the Ashtabula Health Department, we have a plan that is approved countywide to help us have a fun and safe race.

    Please understand that we are moving forward with a “live” race. This does not guarantee that the race will proceed as planned. If the health department deems the race unsafe due to increased spread of the Coronavirus, they may force us to transition to a virtual event. There will be no refunds if the race is canceled and transitioned to a virtual event.

    Our 2019 race had a whopping 127 participants sign up! The Roaming Shores 5K’s proceeds benefit our local Safety Services and the STARS Club, which organizes several events in the Shores and the annual Fireworks Display.

    Take advantage of the Early Registration discount and be guaranteed a shirt or tank top (limited quantities available race day) by registering before June 11th! Shirts are FREE for 5K participants and $5 for the fun run participants.

    Note: There will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION

    You can register online at stasnyroadracing.com or runsignup.com/Race/OH/Rome/RoamingShores5K

    The 5K will be a flat loop around Roaming Shores Village. The start and finish lines will be at the Roaming Shores Clubhouse parking lot. The race will be professionally timed by Stasny Road Racing.

    Overall 5K male and female winners receive trophies.  1st, 2nd, & 3rd place finishers in each age group (Male & Female) will receive medals. Age categories: 9 and younger, 10-14, 15–19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & over.

    Can the Cruiser Cancelled

    In light of the dramatic number of increasing cases of Covid-19 in Ashtabula County I have unfortunately decided to cancel our 2020 CAN THE CRUISER food drive event scheduled for this Saturday, November 14th.

    Although the CAN THE CRUISER event is extremely beneficial for our local area I do not believe that at this time it is a good idea to have our officers in direct contact with several different persons during the collection hours.

    It is ultimately the responsibility of the police department to protect and serve the community of Roaming Shores. The loss of just one of our officers; short or long term due to a Covid-19 quarantine, would substantially impact our ability to do both of the above.

    If you still wish to contribute to Country Neighbors Christmas Basket Program you can take your donations directly to Country Neighbor, 39 South Maple Avenue in Orwell and drop them off in person. You can also mail your monetary donation to the above address.

    Thank you for your understanding and we truly hope to see all of our community events back on track in 2021.

    Weekend Accident on the Lake

    We received a report of an injury on the lake over the weekend. The accident reportedly involved a person whose leg got caught in a rope. The injured person was transported to the hospital for their injuries. The status of their injury is not known by the RRA at this time. This incident appears to be the result of an unfortunate accident and not a rule violation. Please practice safety at all times. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim for a speedy recovery. Thank you to our community members who were there to help and to our local safety services!

    RRA Board Covid Update

    Labor Day Fireworks Cancelled!


    We had hoped that our cancelled Fourth of July fireworks display could take place during Labor Day weekend.  Unfortunately, the situation regarding Covid has escalated during the summer.  The State of Ohio Health Department mandates allow fireworks displays, but they do not allow mass gatherings of more than 10 people.  Once again, the STARS Club, Association Board, the Fire Chief, the Police Chief and the Mayor all weighed in on the decision and it was the consensus that the risk is too great for our community at this time.  We talked directly to the State of Ohio Coronavirus Health Experts as well as our Ashtabula County Health Department officials in hopes that we could find a way to make it work with no success.  Therefore, the Labor Day 2020 fireworks are cancelled. 

    While it is disappointing, we hope everyone understands the safety of each and every person, living, working and playing in our community is priority one.   Our past displays have drawn large crowds at both Beach One and along many of our roadways.  There is no practical way we can control this type of mass gathering without putting many at risk.

    Please enjoy the rest of summer.  Stay safe, Stay healthy!  At least we have a beautiful community to enjoy sun and nature.  Thank you to all who contributed to the cost of this year’s fireworks.  The money will be used towards a 2021 display!  Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that our lives can soon return to some normalcy and that any pandemic issue will be only a memory.   Thank you to the many residents who have found ways to share special moments on the lake this year.  The July fourth private displays were awesome, and the music concerts have been much appreciated!  We truly do have a wonderful community full of wonderful people!
