The TLPOA has issued a warning to boaters to use extra caution when operating boats during this period of little rainfall.

Treasure Lake is currently 15″ below normal level, and this level could potentially drop even further.

Any old bridge pilings and other obstructions on the lake bed could cause damage to those who are careless in their boating operations.

We hope the rain today helps with the water levels.

There is a burn ban in effect for all of Sandy Township, including Treasure Lake.

Open burning is defined as the ignition and subsequent burning of any combustible material (garbage, leaves, grass, twigs, litter, paper, vegetative matter involved with land clearing, or any sort of debris) out-of-doors either in a burn barrel or on the ground.

This would include campfires, even when proper fire rings are in place.

At the annual meeting, Scott Bender, of Omni Management Services, gave a presentation on golf operations.

Observations include that business levels and rounds of golf need to be increased to eliminate operating at a deficit.

Based on reports from the 2014-15 golf season, approximately 7,000 additional rounds of golf are needed to at least break even.

Stay and play packages have increased: In 2013, 230 participants; in 2014, 260 participants; in 2015, 486 participants; and as ofJuly 8, 683 participants.

Stay and play is showing a significant increase and this will help the bottom line.

Many property owners had a difficult time trying to get home today.

After arriving at the back gate, they discovered the back gate was closed.

Then after turning around, driving through Clear Run and through town to get to the front gate, they found traffic was backed up on Route 255 for line painting at the entrance to Treasure Lake.

Who said, “You Can’t Go Home?”

Monday was the first work session of the board year and we have heard things went smoothly.

The board president kept the board members focused on the agenda topics and we also heard that the lone property owner that spoke had much useful information concerning the health of the lakes.

We hope the board follows through.

There was some good news at the annual meeting this year.

TLPOA Treasurer, Michael Yoha said the fiscal year was a very good year and the TLPOA finished the year ahead of budget.

We have noticed several signs that are against TLPOA policy.

One is a house for sale sign right on Coral Reef Road on TLPOA property.

The other is a sign at the “T” intersection for the music fest which was held last week.

By the way, the Ski Lodge sign at the front entry has grown in height. Don’t we have a height limitation?

This looks like a job for the property control officer!
