****** MANDATORY NEW LOT OWNER BOATING ORIENTATION contact the SVDC secretary for information and to schedule an orientation******
Informal Lot Owner Get Together Friday, July 3rd 6pm at Shanksville Grove next to Shanksville School
Indian Lake Fireworks Saturday, July 4th at dusk
Let’s all decorate our boats to show our Patriotism for the 4th of July weekend.
To date this boating season, there have been 3 near accidents that could have resulted in serious injury on our lake.
Accidents are very easy to avoid if every boat operator is paying full attention, following safe boating rules and leaving plenty of room if following a skier or tuber being pulled by a boat ahead. Keep in mind, skiers fall and tubers can be thrown from a tube. Make sure that you have plenty of room to slow/stop if someone falls into the water ahead of you.
A suggestion for anyone who falls from skies or a tube, and a good thing to teach our young people, is to raise and cross your arms over your head so that you are more visible in the water. Otherwise, it is just a head showing above water which is difficult to see especially on a sunny day.
No one wants our lake to become a non-motorized vessels only lake because of an accident. We can all have fun and be safe at the same time if we pay attention and know the boating rules
