Upcoming CLA Meeting & Proposed By-Law Updates

It is hard to believe the spring season is upon us with the several inches of snow this morning, but we are busy preparing for the upcoming meeting and want to make sure our residents and members are aware of the upcoming meeting planned for Saturday, June 4, 2022 (8:30 – 10:30am) at the old Caribou Lake School (Richard Barlage Sheet Metal Apprentice School). The address is 6279 Industrial Road – Saginaw, MN 55779.

One of the items we would like to vote on are the proposed Caribou Lake Association By-Law changes to bring us current from the original 1982 By-Laws currently in place. For your review are a retyped original and a proposed version that includes the tracked changes.

If there are any other items you wish to get on the agenda please email Cory Garden cgarden@cariboulake.org or Carrie Romundstad cromundstad@cariboulake.org.

See you at the meeting Caribou Lake Friends & Neighbors!

The address is 6279 Industrial Road, Saginaw, MN 55779 and the building is located on the corner of Industrial Road and Munger Shaw Road. We will host the picnic rain or shine with a family friendly gathering.

Industrial Road Sign – Name Additions

It is that time of year again where we invite members/property owners that want their name added to the sign to contact our volunteer craftsman, Jeff Charnes, at 218-729-4559. He coordinates a donation and works with another volunteer craftsman, Paul Manns, for finishing work before adding the names to our legacy sign.

If there is interest in the Association pursuing a similar sign for the Birch Point Road or Charles Road areas, please take this SURVEY by August 31, 2021 and we will tally the interest level.

Weed Harvester Clearance and Low Wake Zone

Clearance and low wake zone please!

It has been great seeing the weed harvester out so much, but please give this machine ample clearance and as little wake as possible. We have had several boats coming in very close and circling the harvester to investigate, but the wake they create means we are susceptible to damage by unexpected rocking. Reminder that we are pulling from the bottom so if we see boats approaching closely we are lifting from the lake bed and not harvesting properly because we don’t want to damage the machine.

Weed Harvester Update

Caribou Lake friends and neighbors, thank you for your continued patience as we work to get the harvester operational. While it is still not fixed, Cory Garden now has the Manufacturer, Dealer/Servicer, and a Designer talking. It has been an uphill battle to get to this point and many frustrating phone calls. Cory has been sure to let them all know of our frustration as a membership, dissatisfaction with this machine’s reliability, and sheer disappointment with their customer service. Continue reading

4th of July – Annual Boat Parade

Hope everyone is ready for a 4th of July celebration weekend on beautiful Caribou Lake. As you prepare your weekend plans, don’t forget about our annual boat parade hosted by Rosie and Les Adolphson. Get your boats ready and meet in the bay by Shady Lane (north of Kehtel Road) to line up at 1:00pm. Last year’s winner gets to award this year’s trophy. We can’t wait to see your creative and festive boats come to life!

Weed Harvester Update

We were hoping for the weed harvester to be done with its hydraulic repair on Friday, and returned to service, but it is not complete yet. The shop has all the pressure and torque specs they need and we believe we will have the harvester in service very soon. The operators are ready to go and the weeds are growing so we want to start ASAP!
