WHAT'S  NEW  AT  THE  LAKE

Adam Maki Joins Sportsmen's Club Board of Directors; By-Law Change Expands Board to 15

Adam Maki was elected to the Sportsmen's Club board at the lake association's August 8th annual meeting. He represents the Cook end of the lake. Adam will serve three years, replacing Gary Whitenack, who chose not to run for re-election. Bill Rosner also chose not to run. Rosner's seat is currently open.

We express our thanks to both Gary and Bill for their service on the board. Best wishes for the future!

Annual meeting attendees also approved a change to the organization's by-laws to allow the board to grow from 12 to 15 members. This change provides the flexibility to add a board member with specific expertise or interests as needs arise.

Re-elected to 3-year terms were current board members Dale Lundblad and Bob Wilson.

Board meetings are open to all club members. Please check with any board member [contact info] for the time and location of the next meeting.

Loon Survey Report for 2014
 

The annual loon count for Lake Vermilion was set for Monday, July 14. However, due to high winds, rain, and cold temperatures, it was postponed until Wednesday, July 16, which was a perfect day for counting loons. Seventy-four people participated in the event.

The total count this year was 248, which included 62 pairs, 29 chicks and 95 singles. While less than the 265 loons counted last year, it is right at the 10-year average of 247. Additional good news: In the past few days avid loon watchers have reported some new hatches which were not included in last Wednesday's count. The late hatches could be due to a number of factors: the late 'ice out' on Lake Vermilion this year, this spring's unusually high waters which may have washed out established nests, swarms of black flies which attack loons causing the birds to abandon their nests, or the increased eagle population looking for food for young eaglets.

Summer is here; enjoy the thrill of spotting a loon on the lake and hearing its haunting calls.
