July 4th is just around the corner.

Kayak Rally: 8:00 – 11:30. Paddle around the lake with any non-motorized vessel and collect as many tickets as you can from orange flagged locations around the lake. Print your name and phone # on each ticket and bring your tickets to the Rt 28 launch by 11:30. Tickets will be drawn for great prizes, including a $50 gift certificate to Steiner’s Sporting Goods and gift certificates for KLC merchandise.

Boat Parade: Starts 1:30 from One Tree Island. Decorate your vessel to tour the lake, entertain your neighbors, make some noise and have a ton of fun. Be recognized for best decorations and most patriotic boat.

Ring of Fire: 9:00pm. Light your flares at 9:00pm along the shoreline for the annual Ring of Fire. Flares will be available at the Rt. 28 launch from 11am to 1pm on July 4th, or call Ken Bosen (see DIRECTORS page for contact info) to arrange for flares at other times.

Keep your fingers crossed for great weather. Please be safe, and let’s have yet another spectacular Fourth of July on Kinderhook Lake.

During the morning and early afternoon, July 4th turned out to be somewhat of a bust – at least weather-wise. But that didn’t stop a decent contingency of 26 brave souls from turning out for the Kayak Rally. Congratulations to the winners: David O’Neil ($100), Jessica Smith ($50), Corrin Farmer ($25) and Angelika Nelson ($25). Thanks to the 40 lakefront property owners who put out orange flags and ran out between raindrops to give out tickets.

Although the boat parade was officially cancelled, five decorated boats ignored the rain and paraded around the lake on their own announcing their arrival with great fanfare. By mid-afternoon the rain had stopped and boaters wasted no time getting out on the lake to enjoy a rain-less afternoon.

Sadly the Ring of Fire was not as vibrant as usual, perhaps due to the weather. However, there was no shortage of spectacular fireworks displays around the lake lasting well into the night. Hoping everyone made the best of the Fourth of July and the rest of the holiday weekend.

Kayak Rally: Start anywhere on the lake at 8:00am using any non-motorized watercraft and race to collect tickets from various flagged locations around the lake. Bring your tickets to the Rt. 28 boat launch by 11:30am. All tickets will then be entered into a drawing for some great prizes. We are still looking for shoreline volunteers to fly a flag and distribute tickets to rally participants. If you are willing to help, please call Russ Camadine at 518-857-6853. In case of inclement weather and the event is postponed, red flags will be flown at One Tree Island and the Rt. 28 and Rose St. launches on the morning of July 4th. Rain date for this event will be July 5th.

Boat Parade: Decorate your boats and meet at One Tree Island at 1:30pm. The last few years have seen very few entries, so we hope this year will be better attended.

Ring of Fire: Light your flares along the shoreline at 9:00pm.

Merchandise: KLC and One Tree island logo merchandise, as well as flares for the Ring of Fire, will be available July 4th at the Rt. 28 Boat Launch between the hours of 11:00am and 1:00pm, and afterwards at the Rose St. launch.

Volunteers gathered at the north end of the lake on Saturday morning to help pull water chestnuts. While the task seemed daunting to 11 weed pullers, in 90 minutes an amazing amount of weeds were pulled. Thanks to the following volunteers:

Eva Nelson, Andrew Nelson, Daniel Nelson, Betty Breed, Bill and Terry Cleary, Dan and Robin Langer, Steven Sigler, Mike Sigler, Lisa Benfield.

Over the past few years, members have expressed concerns over increasing weed growth in the lake. Weeds are both unsightly and annoying to those who fish, boat and swim. Weed growth is fed by nutrients coming from septic systems leaching into the lake as well as rotting leaves and other plant matter raked into the water. We have encouraged shoreline residents and adjacent property owners to clean their septic systems every other year and asked that leaves not be raked into the lake bed, but it is simply not enough. Weed growth is also spread by motor boats that run through the weed beds (especially milfoil), as the cuttings drift and seed new growth elsewhere. Every KLC member and lake user needs to do their part to help curb the spread of weeds, the KLC cannot do it on its own. This year we are asking for help from our members, and have arranged for 2 weed pulling events.

Saturday, May 30th. Members and other lake users are being asked to help pull water chestnuts (rain date Sunday, May 31st). Although the KLC’s weed cutter boat does a good job taking care of the water chestnuts, it cannot reach into the shallows at the north end of the lake. Volunteers are asked to meet at 9:00am at the north end of the lake. Please come by kayak, canoe, rowboat, or any other vessel that can navigate shallow water. Bring rubber gloves, maybe a small rake, and perhaps some garbage bags or laundry baskets.

Saturday, June 6th. Shoreline residents are being asked to rake weeds from their waterfront on “Weed Pulling Saturday” (rain date Sunday, June 7th). Many of the weeds will not yet be visible upon the surface, but the smaller plants are less firmly rooted and therefore more easily extracted. It is suggested that property owners utilize either a long-handled rake or a boat towing chains and weights to pull the unwanted weeds via the roots. Or, you can simply wade out into the water and pull at will. Pulled weeds must be brought to shore and tossed in the trash or mulched for use in your garden; they must not be allowed to float free or they will simply re-root and spread the invasive plant.

Together we can make a difference.

The KLC has again organized a NYS Boater Safety Course this spring, sponsored by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and the NY State Park Police. It is designed as a comprehensive boating course, teaching the fundamentals of safe boating operation. It is an 8-hour class and anyone over the age of 10 can attend at no cost.

The course will be taught on Saturday, May 30th, at the KLIA Hall, from 8:00am to 4:30pm. Please bring a bag lunch as there will only be about 30 minutes for lunch.

If you are interested in attending, please call 518-784-3024. Pre-registration is required no later than May 22nd. At least 10 attendees are required or the class will be cancelled.

The latest edition of the New York Safe Boating Textbook: A Course on the Safe Operation of Boats and Personal Watercraft” can be downloaded to your computer, phone, or tablet by going to http://nysparks.com/recreation/boating/education.aspx. Hard copy textbooks will be available free at the class.

Every year around October 15th, the sluice gate in the dam is fully opened 500+ turns to allow water to drain down the Valatie Kill and Kinderhook Creek until our lake is about 33-inches below the main spillway, about 4.5-feet below average summer levels. This lower depth is permitted by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to protect shorelines and docks from erosion and damage due to winter ice and potential spring flooding from rapid snow-melt and rain. The added benefits of the drawdown are to (1) expose shorelines to freezing temperatures, which kills some of the lake weeds (milfoil and curlyleaf pondweed), and (2) permit residents to cleanup and repair shorelines and docks.

Please remember that raking leaves into the lake and/or burning leaves in the lake bed is not permitted, as doing so adds nutrients for future weed growth. Also, lake residents are urged to clean shorelines in front of and adjacent to their properties and make any necessary repairs to shorelines and docks this fall, as snow-melt and rain can often raise water levels quickly, making access to the lake bed more difficult in the spring.

If you haven’t pulled your boats from the lake yet, it’s time to hustle.

The KLC is once again pleased to announce a NYS Boater Safety Course this fall. This is designed as a comprehensive boating course, teaching the fundamentals of safe boating operation. It is an 8-hour class and anyone over the age of 10 can attend at no cost.

The course will be taught on Sunday, October 26th, at the KLIA Hall, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Please bring a bag lunch. Hot dogs may be available for purchase.

If you are interested in attending, please call 518-784-2011Pre-registration is required.

A copy of the latest edition of the “New York Safe Boating Textbook: A Course on the Safe Operation of Boats and Personal Watercraft” can be downloaded to your computer, phone, or tablet by going to http://nysparks.com/recreation/boating/education.aspx. Hard copy textbooks will be available at the class for those who would like one.

In light of last years legislation requiring all individuals born after May 1, 1996 to successfully complete the NYS Boater Safety Course, this course is critical for anyone under 18 years old who wishes to operate motor powered watercraft. 10-17 year olds will receive a NYS Safe Boater Certificate for free; those 18 or older can receive a certificate if they wish for a $10 fee to NYS.

The Annual KLC Meeting was held at the KLIA Hall on Saturday, August 24th, at 10:00 am. About 15 member families were present in addition to the Board of Directors. Lively discussions took place regarding several issues.

  1. Members reelected three existing Board members to new 3 year terms: Bill Cleary, Dan Langer and Fran Sindlinger. Steve Sigler was also elected by the members for a 3 year term to replace Mike Weldon who recently resigned from the Board.
  2. Board member Bernie Kelleher reported that the latest repairs to the dam (repairs to the sluice gate and relining the sluice pipe) were completed for a little over $26,000, well below the original estimates. The savings were partially due to the contractor’s ability to dewater the area in front of the sluice gate using coffer steel already in place from previous repair projects. Bernie also explained that the bridge over the dam is in need of replacement, and that the contractor who completed the sluice gate repairs has donated steel beams and other materials needed to reconstruct the bridge. In addition, DEC has asked that repairs be made to the downside face of the dam in the near future; doing so would prevent future deterioration of the face of the dam. It was also noted by the Board that Bernie has been doing a wonderful job maintaining a consistent water level over the summer.
  3. Board Member Rick Theriault reported that the 2014 KLC BBQ and Fund Raiser was again very successful. All 300 meals were sold and the KLC raised approximately $3000, a record since the event started several years ago. Treasurer Fran Sindlinger noted that the Chinese auction was highly successful in raising funds. Rick noted that since this is the only fund raising event the KLC sponsors, it will continue in the future.
  4. President Paul Winslow reported that the Board is strongly considering placing a locked gate at the Rose Street launch, similar to the gate at the Rt. 28 boat launch. The purpose of the gate would be to better control the use of the lake by non-KLC members, hopefully increase KLC membership, aid in reducing the spread of invasive species and maintaining our stocked fish population for KLC members. Paul asked all those in attendance to cast a vote for pursuing the locked gate at Rose Street and a motion was carried unanimously by the membership.
  5. Member Bill Johnston presented the Board with tax maps from around the lake. On the maps, Bill highlighted all riparian KLC members. He noted that out of approximately 337 riparian properties, only 116 were KLC members. While the 337 riparian properties may not accurately represent the actual number of owners, since some people own more than one property, it does show that far less than 50% of riparian owners are KLC members. Bill urged the Board to pursue options for increasing membership by riparian owners based on his findings, and offered to assist in any way possible.
  6. It was noted that Board Member Drew Nelson would be teaching the NYS Boater Safety Course at the KLIA Hall on Sunday, October 26th and that anyone born after August 1996 must take this course to operate any type of a power boat. Further information will be provided on the KLC website when available.
  7. Following questions from several members, it was agreed that the Meeting Minutes of the previous year’s Annual Member’s Meeting will be published on the KLC website in advance of the Annual Meeting. This will allow members adequate time to review the past meeting minutes prior to the upcoming meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:10 am, and many members stayed for further conversation, coffee and donuts, and to purchase KLC logo merchandise.

Independence Day events took place on July 4th and 5th this year.
