CLCC President’s Message

Dear friends and neighbors,

I hope you are enjoying the New Year so far and staying warm. The recent cold snap was the longest in decades. It was the kind of cold that freezes your pipes, kills your car battery and makes your tongue stick to flag poles. Welcome to the raw beautiful reality that is Cedar Lake in winter. Experts say (and by experts I mean the dart players down at the Club’s winter bar), the best way to keep warm is to keep moving.

One group that knows how to make the most of frigid temperatures is the Cedar Lake Fishing Club who held their annual ice fishing derby last weekend. I didn’t make it out on the ice myself that day, but I saw a lot of photos posted showing evidence that numerous fish were caught by the local kids; some of them quite large. Looked like Pickerel.

Also enjoying the ice are the dozens of hockey players who shoveled out no fewer than three large playing surfaces at various coves around the lake. The figure skaters carved out their own territory around Christmas Tree Island. One family on the southern cove even built a living room out of snow. Pretty cool. And you never know what you might see out there this time of year. Recent wildlife sightings include, a bald eagle, a large red fox and even a mink (no kidding…a mink).

Upcoming events to look forward to: on February 4th the club is holding its 11th annual Super Bowl Chili Cook-off. The winner of this years cook-off will have the opportunity to be sponsored and compete in an inter club chili cook-off being held at Indian Lake be congratulated. To enter your chili in the contest, contact Janis at janisn@verizon.net or use the sign-up sheet at the club bar.

Also this month are the Fishing Club’s Spaghetti Dinner on February 10th and the Mardi Gras Costume Party on February 24th. Details in this Blurb issue.

In closing, I want to wish everyone a great and gratifying Groundhog Day. Winter can be monotonous. But it’s not really the same day happening over and over again. It just feels that way. So if you find yourself falling into the winter blues, remember the words of that great Italian poet Sonny Bono, “They say we don’t have a lot. But at least I’m sure of all the things we’ve got.” Or, as Jim Morrison once said, “come on baby, light my fire.”

Best regards,

Bob Vidal
