To Parents of Young Jet-ski Drivers

By Bruce C. Bower
Safety Committee

After all this time and preaching, I suspect that the only words about your young adult pilots that you would listen to are “you are under arrest”. Young adults are young, immortal, and all-knowing. It is your job and your responsibility to your kids and the community to: teach, preach, inform and reprimand them when you throw them the keys! You are RESPONSIBLE for their actions unless they paid 10k for the rocket and are over 21. I see every possible stupid action possible and almost all of these antics are against the law carried out on the skis. Here is a tough concept, you must be driving a THREE PERSON ski if you tow anyone!!!!!! You need one person being towed, one person to watch and one to drive. How about asking your kids what they are going to do when 3 of them saddle up to have fun and you own a one or two person ski? Come on, think of lives in danger, think of your kids!

Ok, now for the so-called adults. What are you thinking when you take your infant child on your ski and wind up eventually going 50 mph while cutting in and out to give the little one a thrill? There is nothing I can write, in a public paper, to answer this question, that would not be edited out. I give up!

Write or call me with your questions or comments.

June Winery Bus Tour Recap

The STARS Club’s first Winery Bus Tour of the year was held on June 15th. Despite the rain, the group had a great time visiting Stonegait Winery, Laurentia Viveyard, and Laurello Vineyards. We did not get the opportunity to visit Cask307 as it was not yet open and Silver Crest Cellars closed before we made it over. No big deal, we stopped at Laurello instead. We all had a wonderful time and hope you can join us next time! The next tour will be held October 5th.

6/16/19 High Water/No Wake

6/21/19 Update: Thursdays rains were not enough to warrant the no wake lights to be turned on again. Have a great, safe weekend!

Due to the amount of rain water we have received with more coming, the entire lake is currently NO WAKE. No wake indication strobe lights are located on the Clubhouse, at Beach 2, and at the Marina. If the lights are flashing, the lake is NO WAKE.

Creating a wake while the lake water is high risks damage to docks and boats. Be cautious!

High lake waters bring more than just water. If you are out on the lake, remember to be extra cautious of debris that may be in the water and hidden due to the muddy conditions.

Check on your docked boats. If the lake water is high and there is not enough slack in your line, the line can snap and your boat can float away. However, make sure to not have too much slack to where your boat can end up on top of your dock. If you have canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, etc. on your dock, you may want to consider moving them further away from the shore.

If you are not a full time resident, consider calling your neighbors to check on your boats.

Once the water recede to normal levels, we will turn off the No Wake lights.

President’s Report June 2019

It will quit raining someday. The sun will shine for days on end and all will be well. The pools are open and our summer season is finally here. Along with the nice weather comes increased activity on our lake. There have already been reports of reckless and unsafe jet skis, Sea doo’s, etc. We all love our lake, and safety while on the lake has to be everyone’s top priority. During the weekends we have our lake patrol on the water. Please call the RRA office immediately @ 440-563-3170 if you see any unsafe personal watercraft or boats. Take pictures with your phone if possible, we will find the violators. Homeowners will be penalized for anyone reported while operating watercraft belonging to them. We take this issue very seriously and there are NO EXCEPTIONS to the rules.

Kids Learn to Fish Day is Sat. June 8 and The Kids Fishing Day is Sat June 22. All children and grandchildren of Roaming Shores residents are welcome. Contact the RRA Office for details. This Fishing club is very generous to all of the kids involved.

On Fri. June 14 and Sat June 15 we will hold our Annual Roaming Shores Garage Sale. This is a great opportunity to clean up and make a few bucks. There is always a lot of traffic and street parking during this weekend so please be extra aware while driving on our streets during this time. Contact the RRA office if you would like your address to be published on our list of garage sale participants.

Enjoy the weather and be careful out there!

Turn Your Lights On!

Lake Safety Committee
By: Bruce C. Bower

 At sunset, you are supposed to turn on your vessel (boat) lights. This is not a request, it is a State Law and common sense. There will be some tough concepts coming, so bear with me. At sunset (which is when that big fiery ball goes below the horizon, where the sky seems to meet the earth), you are posed to turn your lights ON. Now then, you should have two lights on the bow (the front), one green and one red, (as in Christmas colors, oops not PC). And to make this more difficult, you should have a white one on the stern (the stern is the end of the boat where the engine is, you know that noisy thing ) all at one time! Three lights: one red, one green and one white. Here’s another twist, how about checking these important lights to make sure they work, scary huh?  

 Now for the jet jockeys, it’s simple, you get off the lake before sunset. So when it’s dark, you are supposed to be home. Upon close examination, you will see that there are NO light switches on your dashboard. Another clue as to when it is dark, is that you can’t see the people shaking their fists at you, from the shore. This is because you are not supposed to be on the water when it’s dark, setting up an opportunity to kill yourself or innocent others. Oh, if you are interested, the time of sunset changes every day, so look it up on your google machine and you will be highly amazed.

 If this rant was too non-PC for you, just wrap the garbage in it and give me a call with your suggestions or criticisms, in order to try and attain safety and civility on our Lake.

Carry on smartly and safely,

6/2/19 Entire Lake is NO WAKE

Update: The No Wake lights will be turned off the morning of 6/4/19

Due to the amount of rain water we have received, the entire lake is currently NO WAKE. NO WAKE indication strobe lights are located on the Clubhouse, at Beach 2, and at the Marina. If the lights are flashing, the lake is NO WAKE.

Creating a wake while the lake water is high risks damage to docks and boats. Be cautious!
