General Membership Meeting


Please join us for our second general meeting of 2014.  It will be held on Tuesday, September 30 at 7pm in the clubhouse.  All CLIA members are welcome to join.

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

Letter from the President – August 2014

As Labor Day quickly approaches and we say farewell to summer, we still look forward to quite a few activities down at the lake to round out our 70th Anniversary season. Before we make the transition to autumn, join us for a few more weeks for a chili cook-off, 1 last BBQ, an honest to goodness ball, and, most notably, the fireworks spectacular!

Thanks to all who have contributed to making our summer season a memorable one! Cupsaw Lake could not operate without the dedicated efforts and volunteer support we receive, and we could use more of it. Please thank those whom you know that give back to our wonderful community and consider contributing whatever you can to keep CLIA strong.

I’ll stop bothering you about the boats on Turtle Island soon, but thank you for the cooperation that we have received in clearing the island for the fireworks – it is greatly appreciated.  We have also appointed a new Sheriff of Turtle Island, Rich Marko. He has already jumped into the role with a passion for organization and the creativity to maximize space for a better TI experience.

Lastly, the General Membership meeting that was slated for September 9th will be moved to October 14th due to the abundance of activities in early September.  Hope to see you at the lake!
