WHAT'S  NEW  AT  THE  LAKE

Terry Grosshauser and John Zwieg Handle SCLV Navigation Light Duties

The Sportsmen's Club has installed and maintains a series of flashing night navigation lights along the major travel routes on the lake. Night Navigation Light Terry Grosshauser recently joined John Zwieg as the club's lead "nav light" volunteers. Terry handles the east end of the lake, while John handles the west. Both back each other up to be sure any problem gets corrected quickly.

Inconspicuous by day, the lights assist boaters and snowmobilers traveling the lake at night by helping them visually locate the main routes of travel. The lights are placed at shoreline spots and are not intended to indicate navigational hazards.

All the nav lights are now solar powered and very reliable. However, if you find a light that does not seem to be working, please contact John Zwieg [contact info] or Terry Grosshauser [contact info]. They have the tools and the spare parts to get a light back on the air quickly.
