I love this cabin very much! =)
Newest newsletter from June has been posted to the LLW Newsletter section:
To join LLWC, one must submit a $1000 application fee, pay a $1500 initiation fee, be recommended by another club member and purchase land within the year. Additionally, a member must pay $75/month in dues. LLWC does allow for a membership transfer to another family member who owns property at the club, which is good. That way we can avoid the $1500 initiation fee. Glenn and I have decided to have him be the \"standing member\" to represent the entire family, rather than pay all those fees plus the monthly dues for two memberships. The membership is available for anyone\'s use. We have just made this decision to keep things financially affordable.
Good news on his membership progress! He has successfully submitted the application, been interviewed by the club president, and we are now awaiting the LLWC board\'s decision on his membership approval. If all goes as anticipated, he should be the newest \"Glenn Omans\" to be a member of Lost Lake Woods Club, about mid-April. Watch for updates on that front!
Newest newsletter from May has been posted to the LLW Newsletter section:
Aunt Judy has secured a lawyer who has transferred the deed into Glenn and Abby's name. Unlike the deed left by Grandma and Granddad Omans, the deed will be willed to the children of Glenn and Abby. Glenn is working on transferring the LLWC membership. Since it doesn't make sense to have two club memberships, they are going to set up the membership in Glenn's name only, even though the deed has both of their names. Abby has been the financial director thus far, collecting and paying moneys due. Insurance has just been secured in our names with State Farm. Best news is that State Farm is yielding a savings of almost $350/year in premiums. That's good news as it is moneys that can be spent for much needed repairs!
Glenn and Abby have been depositing money each month into the escrow account since last October, and paying bills that have already come due. Any visitors to the cabin will be asked to pay a minimal weekly rental to help offset the running expenses of the cabin. This will be a nominal fee, amount yet to be determined, but in the order of $150/week, which will be put into the escrow account as well.
Other issues still need to be addressed: cleaning of the cabin between uses, opening and closing of the cabin, etc. When these guidelines and procedures are worked out, they will be posted right here in the Cabin Portal! Any suggestions as to how to more smoothly create and/or perfect the system will be greatly appreciated. Glenn and Abby want the cabin to continue to be a place for families to come annually for wonderful Up North woods type vacations.
