2015 Fun Day, Fishing Derby and Annual Meeting

The fishing derby, fun day, and AGM will take place on Saturday July 25th.

The fishing derby will run from 7am until 12 noon. There is $25 for largest pike and $25 for the largest bass.  The cost is $2 and the official weigh in station will be the same as last year on the end of the Thurner dock.  All fish must be released at the dock for your entry to count.

The fun day will then begin at 1pmon the Dobson beach. Hot dogs, drinks, and prizes will be included. Thank you to Shirley and Karen for all their hard work.

Finally, the AGM will commence at 7pm at Pat and Gord’s place. Some members of the executive will be stepping down, so if you would like to get involved and make a difference… this is your chance!  Last week we cleaned up some small road issues and dropped 22 loads of stone.

Star Lake Woods Association, Fun Day & Annual Meeting Sign

We’ve started the Water Testing for the 2015 season, and you can read about the results from 2014 in the post below.

We now have a stone base from Turtle Lake Rd. all the way to the bottom of the big hill and part way on Morningside. The road will also be graded later this week. We are going to stay the course and get stone on the entire road system. Regardless of who grades the road, the stone base is keeping the road in good shape

Please see our Road Update for more details.

We need everyone to pay their dues as our fund is nearly depleted.  Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday July 25th.

Fun Day & Fishing Derby!

Fun Day:

The fun day was another huge success this year and the weather cooperated as well.  Games such as shoe toss, wheelbarrow rides, three-legged race, leap frog, swimming and tug-of-war were only part of a fantastic day.  The best loon call was won by Sophie DeWolf and the best wolf call was won by Cameron Dobson.  We would like to thank Shirley Dobson for inviting everyone to use her beach and we would like to especially thank Karen Gillies for running such an awesome event.  Karen is the best fun day event coordinator/planner/hostess this side of the Muskoka River!!!

Fishing Derby:

This year we had 13 contestants in the derby battling for two prizes, biggest pike and biggest bass.  It was a clean sweep in both categories as Willi Thurner won the biggest pike with an entry of 2 lbs 8 oz and he also had the biggest bass with 1 lb 10 oz.   The president of the association winning both prizes……..hmmmmm sounds fishy. Honourable mention goes to Sam Netten-Mackay and Connor Bliss who had good days but just fell a little short.  We hope next year to get more fishermen and liars involved in the derby!!!

Non-Payer Lawsuit:

It has been brought to our attention about a precedent setting court case involving people who do not pay their fair share of the road.  If you go to www.foca.on.ca/case-law you will read about the Point Abino Association versus Lee where the court ruled in favour of the Association and said that Mr. Lee was having “unjust enrichment” by not paying his share.  It has also been brought to our attention that other local associations in the area have taken their non-payers to court and won.   We are hoping that the remaining outstanding fees are paid and that everyone remains amicable because the feeling at the AGM is to pursue our non-payers as well.  We are trying to get the name of the lawyer who handled the local cases as to gauge the cost and direction to follow.  We will keep you posted.

If you are a member of our association and have not received the minutes of the Annual Meeting via email, please contact us.

———-

A big thank you goes out to those cottagers who have already sent in their $300 for the 2013 Fees. Fees were due on March 31 to enable the maintenance and repairs of the road during the 2013 season. Currently about half of the cottagers are late in paying their fees. Without fees, we’re unable to maintain the road to the level we’ve become accustomed.

If you are unsure if you’ve paid, please contact us. We will also be contacting directly those cottagers who are late.
