    Regarding COVID Operations

    As many of you are already aware, Governor DeWine announced that all remaining State mandates will be lifted on June 2nd. Our pools and beaches will open on May 29th, meaning the RRA will be following current COVID operations until it is June 2nd. Please be compliant and courteous, we know everyone is anxious for this to be over.

    After June 2nd, our operations will return to normal. If you have a deposit down on a Clubhouse rental after June 2nd, your rental may proceed. Deposits for rentals prior to June 2nd have been refunded.

    Please perform your own safe practices if you are concerned or at risk of serious health complications related to COVID-19.

    May 2021 Board Meeting Recap

    The RomeRock Association Board of Directors held their May board meeting on Thursday, May 6 at the clubhouse with Louise Lisac, Rory Marshall, Scott Soble, Nadine Pope, Cheryl Fain, Bob McClintock and Rick Brothers present.  Also present was Pat Sowry.

    President, Scott Soble called the meeting to order at 6 p.m. and it opened with Cheryl Fain giving the invocation, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The minutes of the April meeting were approved and Treasurer, Bob McClintock reviewed the March Treasurer’s Report, which was also approved.

    In our financial update, Nadine Pope reported that we are currently reinstating expired liens and placing new liens on properties with delinquent dues and assessments. The deadline of May 1 has passed for payment of 2021 dues and assessments. Late charges have been added to all delinquent accounts. Pat has provided Nadine with a list of accounts that are delinquent and collection letters will be sent out to these members. It is everyone’s responsibility to pay their share and unfair to expect others to pay when some members do not. If there is a problem with paying the entire amount at once, please contact the office at 440-563-3170 and see if payment arrangements can be made.

    Under Lake Management Louise explained that EnvroScience has submitted short term plan recommendations to improve the health and appearance of our lake by dealing with the harmful algae blooms and lowering phosphorous levels. Aqua Doc will begin treating the lake later in May. There was an informational meeting held on Saturday, May 8 that was attended by more than 50 residents. They were given a fact sheet concerning the goals of our lake advisor, EnviroScience and had the opportunity to ask questions concerning their plan.

    Lake Safety – Rory Marshall reported that some of the new buoys will be moved towards shore to discourage boaters from driving inside them, too close to the shoreline. Please remember to pick up your key chain when you go to the office to purchase your boat usage stickers. It has both the Marina and Lake Patrol telephone numbers. This is a joint project with the Marina to help boaters to be able to contact someone in case of an emergency on the lake. These key chains are to assist our Lake Patrol if you see unsafe behavior on the lake. The marina number will assist boaters with mechanical issues. In case of accidents on the water, always call 911 for help. We need to remember that our lake is a private lake and sharing of key fobs for entry to the lake is not permitted. These will be closely monitored this season, so please do not share with non members.

    Another area of concern is guests on the lake. Please remember that the member is responsible for making sure their guests are properly educated in the operation of any watercraft that you allow them to drive on our lake. We had two serious accidents on our lake last summer and certainly don’t want to see that happen again. Please be sure to read our rules and regulations, especially our 10 Commandments of Boating, before you let anyone operate your equipment. We know that we have given you this information before, but it is so important that we want to keep stressing safety on our lake!

    Under Amenities – We hope everyone took the opportunity to respond to the Amenities Survey that has recently been included in our weekly eblasts. We need to know what is important to our residents so the board is able to prioritize future projects. We want to thank our newly formed Strategic Advisory Committee for making this survey available to our residents.

    We will be repaving the basketball court near the clubhouse this spring, as well as having cracks filled and patched at our tennis court. The basketball court will be a great place to try out our portable pickle ball nets. We hope to see a lot of interest in this new club in the shores. The nets can also be used on the tennis court. We are hoping to budget for resurfacing of the tennis court next year that will allow for one tennis court and two pickle ball courts.

    The Pools have generated quite a bit of concern from our residents. After reviewing recently amended Covid mandates, the board has revised its Covid operations for the beaches and pools. The pools will open on Monday, May 29th with hours from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. There will be normal guest allowances per card type with a maximum of 9 guests combined. There will be no party forms, which allow for more than 9 guests at a time. There are no more than 50 people allowed in the fenced pool area at any time. Sign up is suggested on busier weekends. Members and guests must wear masks when entering the pool area to sign in and must maintain social distancing from those not in their group. We also ask that you bring your own chairs. Social distancing should also be maintained on the beaches.

    Cheryl Fain reported that the Roaming Shores Community Preparedness Club volunteered at the Community Clean Up Day on May 1 and passed out goodie bags full of useful information, as well as some candy. They also handed out gun locks provided by our Roaming Shores Police Department.

    The board will begin meeting on the first Saturday of each month at 9 a.m. The first Saturday Board Meeting will be June 5th. The location will be announced in our weekly eblast and be on our web site the week before the meeting. This is a change that many residents, especially part time residents, have been requesting for quite some time and we hope that we will be able to open these meetings, even on a limited basis, in the near future. We will keep you posted.

    Lake Education Session Recap

    Your Board of Directors want to thank the 50+ residents who braved the cold spring morning to participate in our Lake Plan Informational Meeting. Lake Management professionals from EnviroScience and Aqua Doc were live and in person to answer questions. The meeting lasted about two hours full of great dialogue. A big thank you to Dave Ernes our Lake Management Committee Chairperson as well as Randy Ruebel for their commitment to our lake community. We plan future meetings (hopefully better weather). Keep informed so you can join us next time.

    Lake Health Action Plan

    4/30/21 High Water/No Wake

    5/1/21 Update: The lake waters have receded enough to turn off the High Water/No Wake lights. As always, take caution after such rain events as hidden debris in the water is always possible.

    Never create a wake within 75ft of shore. Not only is it a rule, it’s inconsiderate to your neighbors and can cause damage and erosion.

    Thank you and be safe!

    Due to the amount of rain water we have received, the entire lake is currently NO WAKE. No wake indication strobe lights were turned on and are located on the Clubhouse, at Beach 2, Marina and other targeted areas. 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.

    Mark Your Calendars – Plan to Attend

    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!
