At its July 20, 2010 meeting, the CSCD changed policy on boat length enforcement on Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes. Previously, the Conservancy accepted Indiana titles as proof of boat length requirements. Now, the Conservancy will begin physically measuring any new runabouts to be stickered for the lakes. Any runabout (hull-type craft) over 19' will be disqualified for use on the lakes This decision was passed without any organized study of surrounding lakes, safety issues of certain types of boats, etc. Previously stickered craft will not be measured. The pictured boat is an inboard ski boat designed for minimal wakes, superior manuverability, and safety oriented propeller placement.

The CSCD approved a motion to remove the two swans from Sweetwater Lake. Seems as though the swans have been territorial and aggressive in the North end of Sweetwater. Dr. David Brickler of Trafalgar has offered to remove the swans and relocate them to his acreage and pond to accompany his other exotic animals. I personally "nursed" them through last winter's cold weather not realizing the consequences. Lesson learned.

An impromptu fireworks display was sponsored by the Sherman Families on the North end of Sweetwater Lake on July 3rd, 2010. A perfect weather evening and hundreds of boat/spectators enjoyed the show. The annual Cordry Sweetwater Lot Owners fireworks display is scheduled for June 10th at Sweetwater Lake Beach.
Fifteen Kayak Racers from ages 9 through 60's participated in the July 3rd, 2010 Cordry Sweetwater Lot Owners Kayak Race. The course was set up between the shore of Sweetwater Dam and the Idle Zone buoys. First, Second, and Third Place trophies and certificates were awarded to participants.
