It’s hard to believe that summer is past and we’re moving into the colder months of winter. As we approach the winter months, it’s time to take preventive measures and avoid costly repairs down the road!
These tips will save you money and headaches later:
- Make sure all repairs are made before winter weather hits.
- Check furnace filters to make sure they are clean and clear.
- Check hot water tanks for any leaks and make sure they are in good working condition. A leak will may not only affect your condo, but those around you too!
- Check for drafts and openings around doors and windows and repair them to keep the cold air out.
- Check pipes for any leaks or weak points and repair them to avoid water damage.
- Keep your heat setting on a low heat temperature even if you’re not staying at your condo. This will keep pipes from freezing and bursting.
Have a safe and healthy fall and winter!
Welcome to Striper’s Landing!
Happy Memorial Day to Stripers Landing residents and guests!
It’s a little cool for the water, but that didn’t stop everyone from taking the plunge. This year will be another fun time on the lake at Striper’s Landing. The trees are providing a canopy of shade from the impending hot sun to come, and the flowers are blooming around the property. Take a few minutes to spruce up around your condominium’s exterior as we prepare for summer.

It’s hard to believe that winter is just around the corner and the holidays are in full force now. No matter which holidays you celebrate, enjoy them and stay safe.
It’s also time to start thinking about winterizing your property to make sure pipes don’t freeze and everything stays in good working order. A thorough check of your property to avoid leaks through windows and doors will also help with heating. Be sure to keep heat set at a low temperature even if you’re not staying in your condo to avoid pipes from freezing.
These tips will save you money and headaches:
- Check and make sure all repairs are made before winter descends on Striper’s Landing.
- Check furnace filters to make sure they are clean and clear.
- Check hot water tanks for any leaks and make sure they are in good working order.
- Check around doors and windows and repair any openings that allow cold air in and warm air to escape.
Have a safe and healthy holiday.
Here are the latest updates on what’s going on at Striper’s Landing.
Repairs on the condominiums are still in progress from the recent storm. The roof is already completed and new water meters have been installed. Some walkways have been replaced with new cement for a permanent solution.
There are still many repairs ongoing throughout the summer until all damages have been repaired. Thank you for your patience as we work through these repairs and updates. We will keep you updated on progress.
New PWC Laws
Due to new Game and Inland Fishery laws, anyone operating a personal water craft (PWC) must complete a safety course as of July 1, 2012. This is a nationally mandated requirement. Please check the GIF website for other boating requirements.
Also, please be sure all dues are paid promptly to avoid having your access card deactivated. If cards are deactivated, all past past dues, fees, and penalties must be repaid in order to have card reactivated. This process can take as long as two weeks or more. Your dues are important for the general maintenance of the facility. If you have questions regarding your account, contact Ken Gibbs about balance due information and payments.
Security is provided again this year to ensure non-members and unauthorized visitors do not use the property or any of the facilities. Your cooperation with ensuring only authorized visitors utilize the facilities is very much appreciated.
DJ at the Pool
There will be a DJ at the pool from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 30, 2012 (and again on Labor Day weekend). Please join us as we celebrate the July 4 holiday early this year.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
Hello to all Striper’s Landing Property Owners and Families. We hope you’ve had a great 2012 so far this year.
We want to make you aware that there will be water interruptions during the months of March and April 2012 at the Condos. The water company is installing meters to assist with tracking of water usage.

We’ll see you on the lake soon!
