Letter from the President – October 2014

Welcome to jack-o-lantern’s weather! Thanks to all who made Cupsaw’s Annual Fall Bonfire a huge success and to those who came out to enjoy the s’mores. Such a great transition from warmer days to warmer clothes!

What better way to embrace the fall season than with your friends and neighbors at the lake!? The season isn’t over just because the bathing suits are packed away.

Join us for the Haunted Hilly this weekend and Trunk-or-Treating for the kids on 10/30. We’re also less than a month away from the highly anticipated 5th Annual Holiday Artisan Craft Show. Mark your calendars and come support our talented local artists across many mediums!

As always, your participation is encouraged and your feedback is welcomed to help us improve our collective experience at Cupsaw. I look forward to winding down our 70th Anniversary season with our great community.

Turtle Island Boat Return

With our work on Turtle Island completed, it is time to return our boats to their slips.  We would like to clean up the grass island in preparation for Haunted Hilly activities.

Please return all boats stored on the grass in front of the clubhouse, back to your original, correct slips on Turtle Island no later than Sat October 18th and email Sheriff Richard Marko your space number. If you are going to take your boat(s) home for the winter, please still email Sheriff@cupsawlake.org so that we are able to track available slips.

All boats not removed will have their locks cut (at owner’s expense) and locked up in the picnic area. Thank you for your help and cooperation.

Letter from the President – September 2014

Welcome to autumn at Cupsaw Lake. September seem to just come and go in the blink of an eye.  Very happy we were able to close our 70th Anniversary season’s summer activities with an amazing fireworks show and a Ball to remember for years to come!

Thanks again to all of the volunteers who helped make the celebration an overwhelming success. And another big thank you to all who have assisted in the Turtle Island clean-up and face-lift. The cooperation in moving all member watercraft was greatly appreciated. Please coordinate with Rich Marko, our new TI Sheriff, to return your boats to the Island.

Please join us Tuesday, September 30th at 7pm in the Clubhouse for our September General Membership Meeting where we will hear updates and recaps from all of our CLIA committees who work hard all year to keep Cupsaw thriving.

Our 70th Anniversary Season isn’t over yet! I look forward to enjoying the rest of the year with our great community.

Volunteers needed Sat 9/20 & Sun 9/21 to spread wood chips

Volunteers are needed for this Saturday and Sunday 9/20 & 9/21 to continue spreading wood chips under and around all the boat racks on Turtle Island. Please show up at any time, even if only for 30 minutes, as every little bit helps. Bring your own shovels and metal rakes. There are two wheelbarrows at the island that can be used. Please try to keep wood chips 6 feet away from the water. Thank you for your help!

No Boats on Turtle Island before September 21, 2014

Please DO NOT place your boats back into your Turtle Island slips until after Sunday September 21st.

Now that the fireworks have passed we have more maintenance to complete, which includes:

- Removing rotten wood which will be replaced with pressure treated wood.
– Reinforcing the canoe racks on Turtle Island so storing kayaks is easier.
– Renumbering all boat slips so they are clearly marked.
– Laying down wood chips under and around all boat slips to prevent weed growth.

We’re looking for more assistance this Saturday, 9/13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free hot dogs and hamburgers will be available for anyone who helps out (even if it’s only for a little while).

We’ll be doing some light construction and clean up on Turtle Island (building racks, spreading wood chips, etc.). We’ll also bring in the swim lanes, turn boards and related equipment for the season.

Thank you for your patience and help,

Rich Marko
Turtle Island Sheriff
