Men’s AA 2017 Scholarship Application

CLAA Scholarships and the David Diamantopoulos Civic Recognition Award applications are now being accepted.

Since 1984, the Men’s Athletic Association has awarded scholarships to graduating High School Seniors from within the Cupsaw Lake Community.

These scholarships and award would not be possible without the efforts of the CLAA members and the generous support of the Cupsaw Lake Community. All graduating high school seniors whose families are members in good standing at Cupsaw Lake are eligible.

Applications for 2017 are available for download one now.

Contact mensaa@cupsawlake.org with any questions.

Good luck!

CLIA Environmental Committee Update – Feb 2017

The CLIA Environmental Committee is working to ensure and improve Lake water quality. Last year we continued our: aeration program, lake treatment services (herbicides, algaecides, and alum), and our goose management program.  We added two new circulators in the deep end coves.  We set up a lab to do additional water testing, with a focus on our nine inlets.  We also installed a Rain Garden by the Volleyball Court through the efforts of our local Boy Scouts as part of an Eagle Scout project.  This Rain Garden diverts the runoff from the basketball courts and filters it with native species plants.

This year we plan two other key projects.  We are going to remove the silt from the sediment pond across the street from the northeast corner of the lake.  This will reduce the nutrients that flow into the lake from that stream during rain storms.  We are planning to add Muck Digester Pellets (MD Pellets) in our lake treatment regimen.  In combination with our aeration, these pellets provide beneficial bacteria and enzymes to speed up the process of muck dissipation.

We ask all our residents to help us by continuing good septic maintenance practices, minimizing the use of lawn fertilizers, keeping debris away from storm drains, and considering your own use of rain barrels and rain gardens.  (Google: rain gardens)

Thanks for your help and cooperation.

A Special (and overdue) Thank You

We had such an amazing turnout for our 7th Annual Cupsaw Lake Haunted Hilly 5K, and we want to thank everyone who was a part of it. This year, our race was bigger than ever, with more than 140 runners and more local business support than ever before!

The Haunted Hilly 5K is one of CLIA’s biggest fundraisers of the year, and proceeds directly benefit you, the member, as we enhance Cupsaw Lake. With that in mind, we’d like to send out a huge thank you to our CLIA 5K volunteers who make the event happen for all of us to enjoy, including Beach Club, Men’s AA and Women’s AA.

We’d especially like to thank our VERY generous sponsors. Without their financial support, the race would not be nearly as enjoyable for everyone each year. These sponsors supported Cupsaw … so, Cupsaw, please show them some love and consider giving them your business.

Best Regards,
The C.L.I.A. 5K Committee

Season’s Greetings

Happy December CLIA Members!
 
We hope you are enjoying the holiday season, complete with our first snowfall! It’s been great to see so many friendly faces participating in the Dinner with Santa, Cookie Swap, and other activities around the lake. As 2017 quickly approaches, reflecting on the wonderful 2016 season at Cupsaw with friends and neighbors is easy to do. There have been more members involved in Cupsaw programs than ever before – including the addition of our first successful Women’s Basketball league!
 
We’ve had vast capital improvements around the clubhouse and grounds this year, including a well needed resurfacing of the parking lot, with plans for further aesthetic and environmental projects in the new year! It’s always incredible feeling describing our community to others who can’t believe an oasis like Cupsaw still exists. And it’s all of us, the CLIA members, who make it special. We are extremely fortunate that our lake is directly managed by our membership, and there are so many willing to give so much for the greater good.
 
As always, we could use more hands going into next season, so please consider getting involved in a current activity that you really enjoyed this past year, or look to coordinate new activities to share with our members. Contact volunteers@cupsawlake.org to start the conversation!
 
From your current CLIA Board Members, please enjoy this holiday season however you celebrate, and a healthy New Year!
