					                    Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                       April 2010 – June 2010
Hello Everyone – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds news since the last newsletter
in December of 2009. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of
the trustees – Scott Pritchard, Carole Kmetz, Ron Potter, Rosemary Trimmer or Bob
Bresky. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or by phone at 330– 633–
8858 and Scott can be reached by e-mail at wspritchard@hotmail.com or by phone at
440-748-2845.

1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 22, 2010 to attend the
annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to the
meeting. At this meeting, two trustees will need to be elected. The terms of Bob Bresky
and Rosemary Trimmer will expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee
position, please contact one of the current trustees or e-mail me at rbresky@neo.rr.com so
that your name may be placed on the ballot. Ballots will be printed prior to the meeting
and will be mailed out. Please notify us as soon as possible so that your name can be
printed on the ballot. In addition, if anyone is interested in filling Carole Kmetz‘s
unexpired trustee position (when it becomes vacant) for the remainder of the term, please
let Scott or me know. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up . Please
plan on giving us a helping hand! To make a day of it, we will have a hotdog and
hamburger picnic in the evening. You will receive details later.

2. Docks Back Into Position: On Saturday April 10, 2010 we will put the docks back
into position for the 2010 boating season. This is a relatively easy job and goes rather
quickly if we have enough help. Please consider helping with this project. E-mail
Scott or me and let us know if you would be able to help with this task. The repairs to
the main floating dock and one of the finger docks that we removed in the fall have been
made. These will need to be reattached when we move the docks back to their summer
positions. We will let all volunteers know what time we will start with the docks on that
Saturday as the date approaches. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will be
able to get them in.

3. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats stored on lot 25 for the winter should be
removed by no later than the weekend of May 1, 2010 (or earlier if possible). By
then, the grass will be growing enough that Matt Minto of Matt‘s Lawn Service will need
access to the area so that he can cut the grass.

4. Lot 25 Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULALTIONS, you are
reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of any kind of boat trailer,
jet ski trailer or hauling trailer. This lot is only to be used for overflow parking of guest
cars and the occasional TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend).
In addition, remember that you MAY NOT store trailers on your own lot.
5. Thank You from Matt Minto: Baywinds residents received a thank you from Matt
Minto acknowledging the generous Christmas Bonus that he was given. Matt was
pleased that we were very happy with his work and looked forward to providing lawn
service for us again in 2010. .

6. Trash Service for the Pavilion: We will continue to provide trash removal for our
party/events at the pavilion (Lot 24). The cost for six months (May through October) of
trash collection for the pavilion is approximately $150. We will restart this service in
May. That should allow us to dispose of our clean up day yard waste and trash generated
from the hot dog and hamburger cookout with ease. Please note that this service is for
the pavilion only, and individual owners must still make their own arrangements for
trash removal from their property.

7. Speed Alert: As always, please remember to observe the posted 5 mph speed limit in
the park. At times there is a tendency to want to drive a bit faster than the posted limit.
The 5 mph limit is for the safety of all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of
the speed limit in the park as well.

8. Pavilion Work This Summer: Work on the pavilion will continue this spring and
summer as funds and time are available. We will focus on enclosing the ceiling, lighting
and fans. Scott was able to purchase kitchen cabinets for the pavilion kitchen from
Executive Construction Company. They were liquidating their inventory of brand new
cabinets that they were no longer going to install. He was able to purchase 11 of these
cabinets for $35 each. When the ceiling is completed, we can start on the next phase of
moving the bathrooms and starting on the kitchen.

9. Irrigation Water Pump and Man Hole Covers: Our water pump that we use to
irrigate the common areas ―burned up‖ and is no longer functioning. We will need to
purchase a new one. We will look into purchasing one that is not submerged in the
water. This will help with the problem of electrolysis in the marina. We also received a
notification from the Ottawa County Sanitary Engineering Department that in a recent
inspection of our private collection system, manholes #1 and #2 need castings and
chimney seals. One is located on Ron and Doris Potter‘s property and the other at Bill
and Sue Beach‘s. We are in violation of the county‘s rules and regulations because the
current situation allows storm water to infiltrate or inflow into the sanitary sewer system
during a heavy rain event. We have been ordered to correct this violation by May 31,
2010 when it will again be inspected. We will have to install these new castings and
chimney seals by that date.

10. Update and Final Resolution of Legal Matters: I am happy to report to you that
we now have settled the matter of transferring the road and Lot 25 from Baywinds
Development Company (Len Partin and John Caputo) to Bay Winds Association Inc.
The Quit Claim deed has been signed and filed. There was another snag that we had to
address before the papers could be filed in regard to the property that Bay Winds
transferred to Ralph Meyer and John Meyer. We needed a legal ruling on the matter,
since when we transferred the property we didn‘t ―legally own it‖. The issue was further
complicated since Ralph Meyer is now deceased. That issue has also now been cleared
and proper papers filed and recorded. The additional cost to the association for Title
Examination, Commitment, Title Update/Accommodation Filing, Deed Recording Fee
and Title Insurance Policy was $612.50. This was of course in addition to the legal fees
that we paid our two attorneys Micahel Bassett, then Tony Kington of the law firm of
Chester Wilcox and Saxbe LLP in Columbus. In total, we spent nearly $3500 and a years
worth of time to settle a matter that could have been done with a simple good faith
signature applied to a quit claim deed. Instead we frustratingly endured stalling tactics,
unreturned phone calls and unprofessional conduct. We are all glad that this nightmare is
now behind us!

11. We Regrettably Bid Farewell To Richard & Carole: Richard and Carole Kmetz
will soon be moving into their new home on Cottage Cove in Marblehead. Although,
they aren‘t moving very far away, we will certainly miss seeing them on a daily basis. On
behalf of the Association, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Richard and
Carole for all of their hard work and tireless efforts in service to Bay Winds over the
many years that they have resided here. Over the years, Richard and Carole have
consistently gone ―above and beyond‖ to help with association emergencies and repairs.
With his knowledge of the location of water lines, sewer lines, property lines, electric
lines etc., Richard has contributed a wealth of invaluable information and guidance to the
officers and trustees. Although we are very happy for them and their new adventure in
life, we still are saddened to see them leave us. However, we expect to see them at all of
our parties throughout the coming years! We will plan a farewell party in their honor for
sometime in May. Details will follow later. Again, Carole and Richard – Thank You,
Thank You, Thank You!



            BAY WINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER
                              January 2010 – March 2010

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in
September. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of your
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or by phone at
 330 633 8858. Scott‘s e-mail is wspritchard@hotmail.com and his phone number is
440 748 2845.

1. 2010 Budget Approval: The budget for 2010 was approved at the Trustee‘s Meeting
held on Saturday October 17, 2009. After reviewing the budget with the trustees and
those present, the budget was approved as presented. I was directed last year by the
membership to send a copy of the proposed budget to the membership for their review
and comment prior to the trustee‘s meeting.. I did as directed, but didn‘t receive any
input or questions from the membership. There will be no need to increase quarterly
assessments for 2010. The assessment will remain at $272 per quarter. .
2. Update on Legal Matters: It appears that we may have a settlement in the case of
transferring lot 25 and the road to the rightful owners – Bay Winds Association Inc. At
the time of this writing, we are in contact with our attorney Tony Kington and Judy
Twarek from Hartung Title Company. Judy has suggested changes to the wording of the
quit claim deed that need to be made in order for us to have a warranty deed issued for
the property in question. As soon as the suggested changes to the deed are made by Len
and John‘s attorney John Coppeler, they will sign the papers and forward them to
Hartung Title for recording and the issuing of the warranty deed. In order to make sure
that everything is done correctly, the trustees have directed Hartung Title Co. to do a
formal review and title examination of the roadway and lot 25 for issuance of the title
insurance policy. The cost to us will be $500. In light of all that has happened and the
amount of money spent on legal fees, the trustees felt that it was prudent to take this
action to make sure that the land is transferred properly.

3. Bits and Pieces from the Trustees Meeting of October 17, 2009: The trustees
reviewed a letter from First American Title Insurance Co. advising us as to why they
denied our claim for title insurance. There is no coverage on schedule ―B‖ items, and by
the declarations, we do have the right to use the road. ; The submerged pump for the
sprinkler system at the marina common area is broken, and will need to be replaced in the
spring. Scott proposed a new pump with only a probe in the water. The estimated cost is
about $200. ; The water leak that we had by the shed was fixed at a cost of $680. We
also need to obtain a pressure regulator to help prevent water pressure surges. ; We need
to deal with the lack of water shut off valves at Luterans and Baumans and also replacing
crocks at Tim Feller‘s and John Meyer‘s. In addition, the crock at Kolesar‘s has a very
slow leak and needs to be replaced as well. ; We will ask the company who plows the
snow for us to clear the turn around near the marina a little wider to make it easier to turn
a car around without getting stuck in deep snow. This was a concern that Judy Keiser had
brought before the board in an e-mail. ; We discovered that one of our finger docks, and a
portion of the main floater, have holes in them. We removed both of them from the water
after the trustee‘s meeting when we moved the docks to their winter positions. One of
the holes was the size of a man‘s fist. Needless to say, water was pouring from the docks
as they were pulled up the ramp. The repairs were made by Vince Gresh at a cost of
approximately $680. He will keep and store the docks for us until spring. ; The board
approved a Christmas Bonus of $150 for Matt Minto for the exemplary and conscientious
job that he has been doing in keeping our lawns mowed and the common areas looking
sharp all season.

4. Thank You Darlene and Jim Kolesar: We would like to offer our gratitude once
again to Jim and Darlene for their tireless efforts in planning and hosting our social
activities over the years. It goes without saying that there is a lot of work involved in
planning the social events and making sure that there is enough food and spirits for all.
Thank you also, to all the folks who have pitched in to help Darlene and Jim make our
social events throughout the year very memorable, by helping set up the tables and the
canopy, cooking at the grill and cleaning up after the event was over. It is a lot of work,
but if people pitch in to help, the burden doesn‘t fall on just a few people.
5. Trustee’s Terms Expire: The terms of Bob Bresky, and Rosemary Trimmer will
expire next year. Two trustees need to be elected at the Annual meeting in May, 2010. If
you are interested in running for election as a trustee, please contact any of the current
trustees so that your name can be placed on the ballot.

6. The Marina Is Now Ready For Winter: The marina is now ready for whatever Old
Man Winter has in store for us this year. A hearty thank you to the following people
who gave of their time on Saturday October 17, 2009 to put away the summer furniture,
clean up the flower beds, winterize the water lines and move the docks to their winter
positions: Jim and Darlene Kolesar, Carole and Richard Kmetz, Tim Feller, Darryl
Will, Craig and Kathy Good, Jim Luteran, Jeff Schmitz, Steve Bauman, Bill Beach
Paul Orient, Scott Pritchard and Bob Bresky. We enjoyed the camaraderie laughing
and joking with each other, but also accomplished much on behalf of the association,
thereby saving us the expense of paying to have the docks moved and the other work
done. Although the weather was chilly, the blue sky and sunshine helped a lot. Again,
thank you to all who came to pitch in when the request for help was made. Thank you
also to Scott Pritchard for hosting a luncheon on that day for all the workers.

7. Gluing the Piggy Bank Back Together: Because of the unusual number of costly
expenses that we have had this past year plus known expenses that we face in the near
future, the board felt it was necessary to recoup the money spent on legal fees so far. We
have expensed nearly $3000 in legal fees. There will be a special assessment of $130 per
lot and it will be billed with the first quarter assessments in December and will be due in
January. All of you were notified of this in the e-mail that I sent on October 17, 2009.
The entire amount of the special assessment must be paid by the normal deadline set with
the mailing. As mentioned in item two above, we believe that we have a settlement in
regard to the property transfer. However, if something should happen and the matter is
not settled, it would then require litigation which of course would probably require
another special assessment based on future legal fees.



   Finally, all of the trustees would like to wish you and your
family a Wonderful and Blessed Holiday Season and a Healthy
                         and Prosperous New Year!!



                              Bay Winds Trustees Meeting
                                  Executive Session
                                   August 8, 2009
Present: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky, Carole Kmetz, Ron Potter
Absent: Rosemary Trimmer

The board met today with Tony Kington of Chester, Willcox and Saxbe – a large
Columbus law firm to discuss legal strategies in regards to issues that we have had with
Bay Winds Development Company, Len Partin, John Caputo, Sharon and Felix Polonco
and John Coppeler.

The minutes of this meeting will not be posted on the website. The board felt that since
the matter has not been settled, it would not be prudent to publish what was discussed in
the executive session. If anyone would like to read the minutes of this meeting, they are
available to read by seeing Scott Pritchard or Bob Bresky.

May 10, 2009 9:20 am
Minutes of unofficial informal meeting to discuss legal options regarding Baywinds
Development Corporation.

Present: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Bill Feller, Jim Kolesar
Invited but did not attend – Jeff Schmitz

1. We discussed the issue of obtaining all of our records from North Coast Property
Mangement for safe keeping in the event that we decide to litigate. Since John Caputto
has an interest in Northcoast Property Management, we were thinking that perhaps
records might just ―disappear‖ etc. After discussion by those present, we decided that
this might not be a good idea and decided against it.

2. Bill Feller suggested that if and when the property is transferred to Baywinds Unit
Owners Association, that we get a Warranty Deed to the property with full insurance. He
tells us that a ―quit claim deed‖ is inadequate. It will cost us more, but is well worth the
investment.

3. Bill Feller suggested that we ―notch out‖ only the 10 feet of property needed by the
Polonco‘s to remove the encroachment on our property and make it an easement with the
stipulation that if at any time in the future, they remove the porch or it is destroyed, it
cannot be rebuilt and the easement would become null and void.

4. We discussed the submerged land lease and if it is in the name of Baywinds Unit
Owners Association or if it still might be in the name of Baywinds Development
Corporation. Bob agreed to call ODNR on Monday May 11, 2009 and inquire about our
lease and what name is on the lease.
5. We all agreed that it is imperative that we have an attorney present at the annual
meeting. Scott has contacted an attorney in the area and is waiting for a call back. In the
event that we decide to litigate, we may want to retain an attorney from out of the area so
that we are certain that there are no ties with Baywinds Development Corporation,
Hartung Title and Flynn , Py, & Kruse.
6. After reviewing several documents that Scott presented, we feel that we have a
legitimate case -- since we were sold land and dockage -- but do not have access to either.
Our Warranty Deeds stipulate that we must have access to our property and dock.

7. More discussion was given to item #3 above. Bill suggested that we offer the
Poloncos two options:
   1. Notch out the property needed around the porch. That way, the Poloncos would
own it. We would sign off on it with the Planning Commission. The Poloncos would pay
all fees necessary.
   2. We will give an easement to end the encroachment with the stipulation that in the
future, if the porch is either removed or perhaps destroyed by fire etc., it cannot be rebuilt
and the easement would become null and void.

The other options that were offered to the Poloncos by the Board of Trustees at the March
21, 2009 Trustees Meeting are still on the table and are viable:

 1. Purchase the 10 feet of property that they are requesting to the fence line at fair market
value.
or
 2. Give up their dock in exchange for this property.
or
 3. Agree to pay the full amount of quarterly assessments (instead of half) in perpetuity.
This would be passed on to any future owners of the property should it be sold. If the
assessments were not paid, the owners of the property would lose their right to use the
dock and it would revert to Baywinds Association. The payment of the full assessment
would not give them a vote in any matters of the association and they would still be
responsible for 1/24th of the cost of any improvements to the marina.

8. Scott also stated, that instead of us notching out the property, that Len Partin could
conceivably notch it out, and then deed the remainder of the land to Baywinds
Homeowners Association.
There being no further items to discuss regarding this issue, the meeting concluded at
10:45 am.

Minutes of this meeting were recorded and submitted by Robert Bresky – Baywinds
Treasurer/Trustee.

                                     BAY WINDS
                                  TRUSTEES MEETING
                                    MARCH 21, 2009

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary

Trimmer and Secretary, Doris Potter
Guests: Steve Bauman, Mark Gorrell, Mike Trimmer, and Homeowners Sharon

and Felix Polanco

Scott called the meeting to order at 10 AM.

The first order of business was the home facing Bay Shore Drive owned by Mr. And

Mrs. Polanco.

       1. The Polanco’s would like 10 feet by 248 feet of our Right of Way (R.O.W.)

       2. Scott found out that our street could never be a dedicated road because of

the width.

       3. In researching the R.O.W., and the possibility of selling a piece of the
          R.O.W., Scott found that Hartung Title and Len Parton never got the
          green spaces properly titled to Bay Winds
       4.
       5. Hartung must get this problem solved and the title presented to Bay
          Winds.
       6. The Polanco’s came to the meeting to introduce themselves and to inquire
          what rights and restrictions there are to the remodel their home on the
          corner of Bay Shore and the Bay Winds entrance drive. They need a
          section of our R.O.W. in order to do the remodeling work. As stated
          preciously, they need 10 feet by 248 feet.
       7. The Polanco’s have several options to consider;
              A. They may opt to pay the full Bay Winds assessment in exchange
                 for our granting them the land strip they need and have a dock.
                 This would pass on to future owners in perpetuity. If they should
                 stop paying the quarterly assessment for any reason, they would
                 relinquish their rights to use the dock until all payments were
                 made in full.
              B. They may opt to purchase the land at fair market value but still

                must pay their association assessments at the rate of one half of

                whatever the assessment is. In the event that they stop paying their

                quarterly assessment, they relinquish their right to use the dock until

                all payments have been made in full
We continued our usual meeting with a discussion of the water issue.

      1. January 2009 water bill was for water usage of 145,000 gallons.

      2. The water meter seems to be working per the water department.


      3.     It was decided to have the meter tested for $25.00 and then have it
            replaced.

      4.
      4. The PUCO can be approached with the problem but there is a letter on

      file that says that several owners let their faucets trickle during the very cold

      weather.

      5. Steve Bauman asked if there might be a way to keep a record of the water
         usage weekly or whatever. Scott said yes.


      6. Gravel is needed on the jetty. It was suggested that a smaller size be used
         as it is easier on the feet.


      7. Todd Zimmerman would like the park to have a wireless internet
         connection. He has proposed installing an antenna that would service all
         those in Baywinds who are interested. Those signing up will share in the
         expenses.


      8. Allied Waste will be contracted to begin trash removal at the Pavilion
         starting May 1, 2009. We will need to purchase two or three large trash
         cans with attached lids.
      9. Matt Minto will be contracted again for yard maintenance
Bob Bresky gave a Financial Report as of February 28, 2009 as follows:

      $ 6,482.20 National Bank of Ohio checking

           7,647.05 First Federal Savings

      $17,032.12 Total

       In addition, Bob reported that we had $177.00 of taxable income, and had to

       pay Federal    Income Tax of $23.00.

Darlene reported the following social events for the 2009 season:

       May 16: Annual Meeting

Respectfully submitted,       Doris Potter, Secretary




                                    BAYWINDS
                              ANNUAL BUDGET MEETING
                                  OCTOBER 18, 2008

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary Trimmer
and Secretary, Doris Potter
Guests: Richard Kmetz, Frank Modliszewski, Jeff Schmitz and Mike Trimmer
Purpose: To adopt the 2009 Budget
Scott called the meeting to order at 9 AM.
Bob made the following observations relative to our 2008 budget:
       1. An increase in the cost of lawn service as we hired a different landscaper.
       2. We anticipated an increase in the Submerged Land Lease, however, the fee
           remained the same.


Bob then discussed the spreadsheet he developed comparing the expenses for 2006, 2007
and projected expenses for 2008 against the proposed budget for 2009. With some
―tweaking,‖ Bob was able to keep the proposed 2009 annual budget the same as 2008:
$25,568.00. A new item was added to the budget for 2009 – Trash Service for the
Pavilion -- May – Oct. at a cost of $150. We would also have a one time expense to
purchase 5 or 6 trash receptacles. Darlene moved the acceptance of the 2009 budget.
Rosemary seconded, with everyone approving.


Bob then updated our current cash flow as of October 1, 2008:
       $ 8,691.13 Check Book balance
         6,812.39 Savings Account balance
         2,847.82 Certificate of Deposit balance
      $18,351.34 Total
The meeting was adjourned at 10 AM.


Respectfully submitted,
Doris Potter



                                    BAYWINDS
                                TRUSTEES MEETING
                                 OCTOBER 18, 2008

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary Trimmer
and Secretary, Doris Potter
Guests: Richard Kmetz, Frank Modliszewski and Mike Trimmer
Scott called the meeting to order at 10 AM.
Scott made the following report:
       The crock at the home of Steve Cifranic was replaced, with the work being done
by Bruce Brockert. Richard Kmetz observed the entire operation, and took pictures of
the work for our files. Both Scott and Richard were very pleased with the work done by
Bruce Brockert.
       The main drain coming from the home on Bay Shore Road to the front of the
home of Bill Beach was blocked. Adkins Drain Service was called to snake the pipes and
at that time it was discovered that the clog was in the sewer line coming from the house
on Bayshore Rd. Rosemary brought up the fact that since the blocked drain was on
private property, the owner of that property should share in the cost of the repair. Scott
said that he would follow up on that.
       Owners need to be reminded that the sewers on their property are their
responsibility to repair and maintain.
       Scott brought to our attention that some rip rap that lined the marina had fallen
into the water. Bruce Brockert will use a backhoe to pull up any rocks that fell into the
water, then add more rip wrap to dress up the shore line. This will be done after the
docks have been moved to their winter position.
       There was much discussion about trash. Since our park events are well attended,
we have a lot of trash to contend with. It was agreed that we would contract for trash
removal for the Pavilion. Individual owners must still make their own arrangements for
trash removal.         Scott reported that Todd Zimmerman asked about getting internet
service for the park, and erecting an antenna that would allow all residents on the street to
use a wireless router to access the internet. That way, the Pavilion would have internet
and cable television capabilities, and those residents interested, could buy into the
program and pay for its‘ cost. It is still under consideration.
       Scott and Darlene commented on the ongoing saga of the navigational lights. We
could not use the colors the Coast Guard uses, so we chose blue and pink. Now we find
that Bay Winds will still be responsible if a boat crashes into the rocks when coming into
our marina. However, if ―landscape‖ lighting is used only on one side, we will have no
problems.
        Darlene reported that she is still looking into light fixtures to replace our current
street lighting. She will also find out what kind is acceptable, and the lumens required.
        Bob reported that Cathy and Tim Richardson expressed a concern about all the
weeds that have grown around our marina. It was suggested that the owners of the boats
docked on the jetty pull the weeds that grow in the rocks adjacent to their docks. Those
having boats docked on the main floater would pull the weeds that grow in the rocks
between the main floater and the davit, and possibly the jetty separating the marina from
the bay.
        Darlene suggested that the park rules be sent to each homeowner at the beginning
of each season. We also need to include a statement that dumping yard waste on or over
the jetty is not allowed.
        Richard Kmetz suggested that we discontinue having a biannual meeting to
discuss the budget next year because of the poor attendance and the expense involved. It
was expensive to print all the materials, proxy cards, mailings etc., and was inconvenient
and time consuming to make all the arrangements. We spent funds on postage so that
residents could return their proxy cards if they couldn‘t attend the meeting. Only three
proxy cards were received, -- but none were mailed – all were hand delivered to the
board. The board agreed that the expense etc. was not justified since hardly anyone
attended the meeting to discuss the budget for 2009. We will revert back to our old
policy of having the fourth quarter trustees meeting at Baywinds to approve the budget.
As always, trustees meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Anyone that has a
concern regarding the proposed budget can express those concerns at that time.
        Scott is looking into the possibility of having jet-ski dockage in addition to boat
dockage. It is still in the talking stage.
        Darlene reported that Kathy Good‘s mother passed away. Scott said he would
send a card and a contribution to the Alzheimer‘s organization that cared for Kathy‘s
mother, rather than having a tree planted in her memory. It was the family‘s wishes that a
donation to the Alzheimer‘s Organization be made in lieu of a memorial tree.
        It was agreed and approved that a Christmas bonus of $100 be given to Matt
Minto of Matt‘s Lawn Service for his excellent work in keeping the park looking sharp
this past summer.
       There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 11:35 AM.
Respectfully submitted,
Doris Potter




                     Minutes of Baywinds Trustees Meeting
                                 June 21, 2008

The meeting took place at Scott‘s home at Baywinds at 10 am. The
following people were present for the meeting: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky,
Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Rosemary Trimmer and guests Bill Beach and
Jeff Schmitz.
At the beginning of the trustees meeting, it was noted for the record, that the
board had previously approved plans for the construction of a shed and
concrete pad on Bill Beach‘s property and the construction of a deck on
Steve Cifranic‘s property. All trustees had been consulted, but the approval
was done without a formal meeting.
The original agenda was temporarily set aside so that we could hear the
concerns that Bill Beach requested to bring before the board. After
expressing his concerns earlier to Bob, Bill was invited to the board meeting
to work toward a resolution.
Bill was concerned that Scott was bringing his truck cab down the road
periodically, and when he did so, would hit the overhead lines. This has been
going on for a number of years. Scott explained that he only did that when
he had items to unload at his house or items that he purchased for the
pavilion. Bill said that when he hit the lines, it made them fall even lower
and said that it had cost him $900 to have them raised. It was stated in the
discussion, that all lines must be at least 13‘ 6‖ above the roadway. If they
are not, then any trucks such as garbage trucks, cement trucks, delivery
trucks could also hit the overhead lines. Darlene said that she had been here
before when they yelled at the garbage truck driver to stop since his truck
was caught on lines. I questioned if what Bill was requesting was that we
(the board) tell Scott that he could not bring his truck down the road. If so,
we really could not do that because our ―Rules and Regulations‖ specifically
state that ―No action shall at any time be taken by Bay Winds or its Board
which in any manner would discriminate against any Member in favor of
another.‖ The only thing that we could do as a board would be to restrict
trucks by weight limit – but that would not be practical since service
vehicles etc. would be prohibited. A rather heated exchange/discussion took
place. Jeff got up to leave, but was told by Darlene to sit back down and be
a part of the solution instead of the problem. He remained for a short time,
then left. After Jeff left, the discussion calmed a bit and a solution to the
problem was proposed by Bill Beach. Bill suggested that Scott use his golf
cart any time that Scott needed to take items to his house or to the pavilion.
Bill offered to show Scott where the key is kept. Scott readily agreed that
this was an acceptable solution. The issue was resolved to the satisfaction of
all parties present by this gentleman‘s agreement. Bill told the board that he
had not asked Jeff to come to the meeting, and that Jeff was there as a result
of his own interests.

Another issue that the board wished to clarify with Bill Beach was how the
misunderstandings that apparently took place got started when Bill began
construction on his shed. We as a board had to sign off on the placement of
the shed, however, conflicting information apparently given by Scott Young
at the health department, added to the confusion. To clear the air, Scott
explained to Bill what transpired and why. All parties were satisfied that any
mistrust that had been present was now cleared.

Darlene made a request for Bill to reconsider his decision to not play Santa
again this year at our Christmas in July celebration. Bill always has done a
great job, and we would like to see that tradition continue. Bill explained
that he is soon starting a new job, and that he may have to work that day.
However, if he is not working, he agreed to be our Santa once again.

The board also discussed a short e-mail from Jeff Schmitz that was sent to
Scott and Bob that said: ―I want a copy of the State document you were
using last summer in quoting to keep golf carts off the pier.‖ There was
never any state document that the board quoted from. Our rules and
regulations stated that there should not be any parking of vehicles on the
jetty. The board added an addendum to clarify that rule in 2007 which stated
that ―no unattended vehicles shall be parked on the jetty. We assumed that
the issue had been resolved when we received an e-mail from Jeff that he
would no longer park his golf cart on the jetty and leave it there unattended
while out on his boat. The board searched all of the correspondence we had
on this issue with Jeff, and there never was any quotation of a state
document on our part. There was one e-mail from Jeff where he refers to a
―State Document‖, but at no time did the board or its members refer to a
―State Document‖.
The board discussed calculation of the amount to be assessed to John Meyer
for water usage that we had during a period of time that he had a water leak
under his home. John knew of the leak when his water was shut off for the
winter, but did nothing to repair it when the water was turned back on in the
spring. The leak has since been repaired. The board examined the water
bills from 2007 and 2008 for the months March, April, May and June. The
March and April Bills were the same both years – the minimum of $71.25
The May 2007 bill showed that we used 10,400 gallons and were charged
the minimum of $71.25 The May 2008 bill showed that we used 37,100
gallons and were charged $151.92. We also examined the June 2007 and
2008 bills in the same fashion. June 2007 we used 38,000 gallons and were
billed $155.23. In June 2008 we used 41,300 gallons and were billed
$167.37 The board decided to subtract the dollar amounts used for May and
June in 2007 from the dollar amounts for those months in 2008, add the
differences, then take 80% of that amount as the assessment for John Meyer.
The arithmetic is as follows: May (2008 – 2007) $151.92 - $71.25 = $80.67
June (2008-2007) $16.37 - $155.23 = $12.14
We added these two figures together $80.67 + $12.14 = $92.81 then took
80% of this amount. $92.81 x 0.80 = $74.25 We assessed John Meyer
$74.25 for the water used during his leak and instructed Northcoast to bill
him in a separate statement instead of waiting for the next quarterly
assessmet.

The park inspection that was done by the Health Department on May 28,
2008 showed no significant violations. We were told to get a USCG
flotation ring in place near the marina. (This has already been taken care of.)
The other violation was to put a back flow protector on the spigot on the
west side of the marina. We have had them in place in past years, but
someone keeps removing them. A new one will again be installed this year.

We have a serious need to replace the water crock at Steve Cifranic‘s. Scott
had hoped to have an estimate by this trustees meeting, but the guy he called
hasn‘t done it yet. We are guessing it will be in the neighborhood of $1000.
Steve does not have the ability to shut off his water.

We contracted with Adkins Sewer Cleaning Company, to flush our Sewers.
We have done this before about 5 years ago. We are looking at having it
done during the week of July 7 to July 11. We will notify all residents and
remind them to make sure their toilet lids are down in case there is any
turbulence or splashing in the bowl caused by the high pressure that is used.
Some suggested also placing plastic wrap over the ceramic bowl then
closing the lid. (Although that may not really be necessary.) The very least
you should do is to make sure the toilet lids are down.

We are planning on putting down some slag type gravel at the pavilion and
some soil to level out the area near the steps and grass areas.

We have solar lights which will have red and green lenses installed that will
be used to mark the entrance to our channel for boaters who do night
boating. We still need to get approval from the membership on Linda Drive
in order to put one of the lights on their property. Pending approval, the
lights will be installed soon.
Darlene Kolesar gave a report on the progress she was making in selecting
new style lighting for the street at Baywinds. She has looked at path lights
as well as pole lights. We are looking into using our existing poles and
changing out the lights. We would also like to put them on a separate meter.
Darlene will continue to work on this and report back to the trustees.
The meeting was finally adjourned at 12:15 pm.




                      Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                        July 2008 – September 2008

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2008. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 633 8858.

1. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting on May 17, 2008 Bob Bresky and
Rosemary Trimmer were elected as trustees for a two year term. After the meeting, the
board met in executive session to elect officers. The results follow: Scott Pritchard -
President, Bob Bresky – Treasurer, Doris Potter – Secretary, Rosemary Trimmer, Darlene
Kolesar and Ron Potter – Trustees.

2. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean-up was held at 1pm on Saturday May 17,
2008 after the annual meeting. We had a good turn out and were able to accomplish a lot
of work in a very short period of time. Thank you to all who participated. You had a
hand in beautifying the park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most
importantly, a BIG THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year
after year, donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
After the clean up, we had a hamburger and hot dog picnic. A good time was had by all.

3. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your property for the summer.

4. Pavilion Project: The Pavilion Project will continue again this year with the
installation of the ceiling and electrical wiring, lights and fans. The shed will also need to
be sided. If finances are available, we will move the bathroom in preparation for the
construction of the kitchen. Darlene Kolesar suggested that we set aside work time – say
from 8am – noon. That way, people can plan on helping and still be able to enjoy the rest
of the day out on the water. WE DO NEED YOUR HELP. Please contact Scott to let
him know that you are willing to help. We all gain by the completion of this project!
Besides, working together can be a lot of fun and builds camaraderie. Best of all, no
special skills are needed – on-the-job training will be provided! 

5. Parking of Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the launch
ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer). For
emergency access needs, do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting to want to
park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and clear. On
another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using golf carts should be accompanied by
an adult and observe the 5 mph speed limit. In the past, we have received complaints
from residents and neighbors. No one should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or
Commadore Court. Please be cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts
will not have to be instituted.

6. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on April 12, 2008.
This is the fourth year that we have tied off the docks and free floated them in the center
of the marina. This has saved the association a good deal of money in not having to have
them removed to land, then launched again in the spring. Thank you to all who turned
out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land moorings for the summer. In
just two hours the docks were back into their summer positions thanks to Jim Kolesar,
Craig Good, Ron Potter, Scott & Shari Aliff, Mike Trimmer, Darryl Will, Mark
Gorrell, Paul Orient, Scott Pritchard and Bob Bresky.

7. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
provided later. July 5, Rib Fest; July 26th – Fifth annual Christmas in July. You are
asked to decorate the week before -- (July 19th). The previous year’s events were a
tremendous success and a lot of fun. Don’t forget to start hunting for that “special
gift” for the gift exchange; August 2nd We will have our fourth annual River Run
with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run ends in Freemont at the Tackle Box
Restaurant for lunch and presentation of “awards”. Rain date for the River Run
will be the following Saturday August 9. Let Cliff Gerber know if you are interested
in the river run. September 13th or 20th (Final date to be announced later) Clam
Bake.

8. Kentucky Derby Party: Thank you to Darlene and Jim for hosting the third annual
Kentucky Derby Party on May 3rd. It was a fun time (although a bit cool) and everyone
had a chance to bet on their favorite horse. Several people picked the winner and shared
in the prize money.

9. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim who work so hard to plan and put
together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance at
these events. It makes it much easier to plan the food needs and details for each event.
They would also appreciate some assistance in set up of the tables etc. before the event
and clean up after. Many people come to the social events, but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please offer Jim and Darlene your assistance at future social events.

10. Sewer Line Flushing: We will soon be having the sewer lines flushed and cleaned
out. The process involves using a very strong water jet. IT IS HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED THAT YOU MAKE SURE YOUR TOILET SEATS AND LIDS
ARE IN THE DOWN POSITION. The reason being, the process can cause some
turbulence and splashing in the bowl. To prevent ―brown water‖ from getting on walls
and floors follow the instruction above. It was suggested to cover the bowl opening with
Saran Wrap in addition to putting the lid and seat down. Be sure to remove the Saran
Wrap before using!  You will be notified in advance when the sewers will be
cleaned so that you can take proper precautions.

11. Split Rail Fence: Our neighbor to the East on Linda Drive is planning on taking
down the old snow fence and putting up a split rail fence like we did in the marina. He
asked permission to move the last three of our posts over a few inches in order to
straighten out the fence and to make it all look uniform. He discussed this with Scott and
Scott discussed it with the board. Permission was granted.

12. Bi-Annual Meeting: A few people have expressed concerns that their voice isn‘t
being heard when it comes to the budget and assessments. As a result, the board has
decided to hold a Bi-Annual meeting the third Saturday in October each year at the
Danbury Township Hall. This year, the meeting will be Saturday October 18, 2008. The
meeting is open to all members for the purpose of discussing and setting the budget for
the following year and any recommendations for assessment increases or decreases. You
may vote if present, but you CANNOT vote by absentee ballot. You MAY however,
vote by proxy.

13. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. There
have been some problems with the website, but it looks like it is back up and running
again. Our website address is www.baywinds.info The password to get into the website
is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the site as secure
as possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter, trustee meeting minutes,
photos of past social events, and a host of other information that you might like to know
about Baywinds.

14. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5mph speed limit in the park.
Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5mph speed
limit is for the safety of all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed
limit in the park as well.

15. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on a
leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of others if your
pet relieves himself in the common areas, jetty or anywhere else, by cleaning up after
them.

16. Yard Waste: Please refrain from dumping yard waste such as grass clippings,
weeds, brush etc. on the jetty or over the side on the rocks. Dispose of these things
properly. If necessary, they can be taken to the ―Bio Fill‖ in Lakeside/Marblehead.

17. Congratulations Carole Kmetz: Carole recently retired from Key Bank. She now
will have more time to enjoy Baywinds and keep Richard from getting into trouble. 
We also offer a very big Thank You to Carole for putting together the ―Treasured
Recipes from Baywinds‖ cookbook. They were distributed at the annual meeting on
May 17th. If you didn‘t get a copy, see Carole.


  HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT BAYWINDS THIS
                   SUMMER !

                                     BAYWINDS

Scott called the meeting to order at 10:17 A.M.

Financial Report: Bob reported the following:

       Renewal of our $2,778.01 Certificate of Deposit with First Federal was at the rate
       of 4.9% for 6 months.

       We ended the year of 2007 in the black with a balance of $595.31. Total interest
       earned in 2007 was $232.82.

       We had to pay Federal Income Tax of $35.00 on the interest of $232.82
       We also have a new annual fee of $25.00, payable to the State of Ohio, and a form
       called   ―Statement Of Continued Existence Of Corporation‖ that must be
       completed, attesting to the fact that Bay Winds is still in existence.

       The submerged land lease remained the same, at the current rate of $614.76 a
       year. It was expected to increase by as much as 20%. The Trustees have decided
       not to question why the fee remained the same.

       Property Tax for lots 24 and 25 are $355.48 a half year.

       As of February 29, 2008, our financial status is:

Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. Details will follow.

On April 12, 2008 the docks will be put back in place. Notification for helpers will be
sent.

Discussion followed concerning garbage pick-up. Perhaps some home owners may want
to go in together to save money. Bob offered to check on this, and make a report at the
Annual Meeting.

Crock Replacement: An inspection will be made to determine which ones need to be
replaced, and prioritized.

Pavilion: Installation of the ceiling and electrical wiring are going to be done this year,
and depending on finances, the bathroom will be moved in preparation for the kitchen.

Lawn Maintenance: Matt (of Matt‘s Lawn Service) will be contacted to see if he would
be able to periodically remove brush for us that residents might have and if there would
be any extra charge.
Mulch: Bruce, of Traver Tree Service, will be contacted for delivery of mulch for the
common areas.

Street: The street is in need of attention due to the hard winter. Patching may need to be
done, and perhaps a coat of gravel. This will be determined when the weather breaks.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 12:15 P.M.

Respectfully submitted,

Doris Potter




                      Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                         April 2008 – June 2008
Hello Everyone – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds News since the last newsletter
in December 2007. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 -633-8858 and
Scott can be reached by e-mail at wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440 – 748 – 2845 or
419 – 798 – 2300.

1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 17, 2008 to attend the
annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to the
meeting. At this meeting, two trustees will need to elected. The terms of Rosemary
Trimmer and Bob Bresky will expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee
position, please contact one of the current trustees so that your name may be placed on
the ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan on
giving us a helping hand! To make a day of it, we will have a hotdog and hamburger
picnic in the evening. You will receive details later.

2. Docks Back Into Position: Sometime in March or April, we will need to take a
Saturday or Sunday to put the docks back into position for the 2008 boating season. This
is a relatively easy job and goes rather quickly if we have enough help. Please consider
helping with this project. Let Scott or me know if you would be able to help with
this task. Tentative dates for doing this are Saturday March 15th or Saturday April
12th. The date, of course, will depend on the weather and if the marina is clear of ice.

3. Condolences to John and Judy Keiser: It is with sadness that we report that
members of our Baywinds Family have lost a loved one this past November. Judy
Keiser‘s father passed away on November 9, 2007 at the age of 90. That day also had
another special significance in that it was the 67th anniversary of her parent‘s marriage.
All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt sympathies to Judy and John and their family.
We will be contacting Judy and John in the spring to discuss the planting of a memorial
tree in honor of her father.

4. Bi-Annual Meeting: A few people have expressed concerns that their voice is not
being heard when it comes to the budget and assessments. The board has decided to hold
a Bi-Annual meeting the third Saturday in October each year at the Danbury Township
Hall. This meeting will be open to all members for the purpose of discussing and setting
the budget for the following year and any recommendations for assessment increases or
decreases. You may vote if present, but you cannot vote by absentee ballot. You may
however, vote by proxy.

5. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats stored on lot 25 for the winter should be
removed by no later than the weekend of May 3, 2008 (or earlier if possible). By
then, the grass will be growing enough that our new mowing service provided by Matt
Minto will need access to the lot so that he can keep the park grounds looking nice.
6. Lot 25 Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are
reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of any kind of boat trailer.
This lot is only to be used for over-flow parking of guest cars and the occasional
TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend). In addition, remember
that you MAY NOT store trailers on your own lot.

7. Bike and Hike Trail: I reported in the last newsletter that a bike and hike trail is to
be constructed in the Meadow Brook Preserve directly across from the entrance to
Baywinds off Bayshore Road. There will be a parking area set several hundred feet back
from the road which will lead to the Bike and Hike trail. The trail will meander through
the Preserve and around the water. Construction was scheduled to be completed by May
2008. However, at the time of this writing, I‘m not sure that much progress has been
made on this project. When it is finished, it will be a nice addition to the neighborhood,
and a place where many of us will be able to enjoy a nice hike or bike ride.

8. Speed Alert: As always, please remember to observe the posted 5 mph speed limit in
the park. Some residents have a tendency to drive a little faster than they should through
the park. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all residents, children and guests.
Please make your guests aware of the speed limit in the park as well.

9. Pavilion: Work on the pavilion will continue throughout the summer as we have the
funds and time to do so. We need to enclose the ceiling in the pavilion, add the lighting
and fans and do a little painting. In addition, we need to side the storage barn. After that,
we will start work on the bathrooms and kitchen area. Please offer your services to help
put the finishing touches on the pavilion.

10. Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar is planning on
an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday May 3, 2008 at their place at
Baywinds around 5:00 pm. It will be a simple get together with drinks and hors d‘oevres.
If you plan on attending, you are asked to bring a small appetizer and beer if you would
like to drink beer. Otherwise, Darlene will provide other beverages. Everyone is
welcome. Darlene also indicated that Hats Are Required for this Kentucky Derby
event. :-) If you are planning on attending, please contact Darlene and Jim at
216-362-6123 or via e-mail dak54@aol.com




                      Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                       July 2007 – September 2007

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2007. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 633 8858.

1. Condolences to John Meyer and his family: It is with sadness that we report the
passing of Ralph Meyer - a long-time resident of Baywinds, and the father of John
Meyer. Ralph passed away in April. All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt
sympathies to John and his family. A Bradford Pear Tree was planted in remembrance of
Ralph in front of John‘s Baywinds home.

2. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting on May 19, 2007 Scott Pritchard, Ron
Potter and Darlene Kolesar were elected as trustees for a two year term. After the
meeting, the board met in executive session to elect officers. The results follow: Scott
Pritchard - President, Bob Bresky – Treasurer, Doris Potter – Secretary, Rosemary
Trimmer, Darlene Kolesar and Ron Potter – Trustees. The board would also like to thank
Kathy Good for her service on the board for the last two years.

3. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean-up was held at 1pm on Saturday May 19,
2007 after the annual meeting. We had a fantastic turn out and were able to accomplish a
lot of work in a very short period of time. Thank you to all who participated. You had a
hand in beautifying the park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most
importantly, a BIG THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year
after year, donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
After the clean up, we had a hamburger and hot dog picnic at the Kolesar‘s and French‘s.
A good time was had by all.

4. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your property for the summer.

5. Pavilion Project: The second phase of the pavilion project has begun. We are
getting ready to pour the concrete and then we will enter the cosmetic phase of the project
with siding, painting , and finish work etc. We will need your help with this. Darlene
Kolesar suggested that we set aside work time on Saturdays and/or Sundays – say from
8am – noon. That way, people can plan on helping and still be able to enjoy the rest of
the day out on the water. WE DO NEED YOUR HELP. Please contact Scott to let him
know that you are willing to help in finishing the Pavilion. We all gain by the completion
of this project! Besides, working together can be a lot of fun and builds camaraderie.
Best of all, no special skills are needed – on-the-job training will be provided! 

6. Parking Of Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the launch
ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer). For
emergency access needs, do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting to want to
park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and clear. On
another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using golf carts should be accompanied by
an adult and observe the 5 mph speed limit. In the past, we have received complaints
from residents and neighbors. No one should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or
Commadore Court. Please be cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts
will not have to be instituted.

7. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on March 31, 2007
after the Trustees meeting. This is the third year that we have tied off the docks and free
floated them in the center of the marina. This has saved the association a good deal of
money in not having to have them removed to land, then launched again in the Spring.
Thank you to all who turned out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land
moorings for the summer. In just two hours the docks were back into their summer
positions thanks to Jim Kolesar, Bill Beach, Jeff Schmitz, Craig Good, Ron Potter,
Mark Gorrell, Scott Pritchard and Bob Bresky.

8. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
provided later. July 7, Rib Fest; July 28th – Fourth annual Christmas in July. You
are asked to decorate the week before -- (July 21 st). The previous year’s events
were a tremendous success and a lot of fun. Don’t forget to start hunting for that
“special gift” for the gift exchange.; August 11th we will have our third annual
River Run with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run ends in Freemont at the Tackle
Box Restaurant for lunch and presentation of “awards”. Last year’s winners –
Darlene and Jim Kolesar are in charge of the River Run this year. Something NEW
this year -- in the evening, we will be going out to eat at a local restaurant. All are
welcome to join the group – even if you didn’t go on the River Run. Let Darlene and
Jim know if you are interested in the river run or just dinner after, or both! ;
August 25th , Bratwurst and hot dogs; September 15th Clam Bake.

9. Kentucky Derby Party: Thank you to Darlene and Jim for hosting the second annual
Kentucky Derby Party on May 5th. It was a fun time (although a bit cool) and everyone
had a chance to bet on their favorite horse. Eight people picked the winner and shared in
the prize money.

10. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim who work so hard to plan and put
together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance at
these events. It makes it much easier to plan the food needs and details for each event.
They would also appreciate some assistance in set up of the tables etc. before the event
and clean up after. Many people come to the social events, but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please offer Jim and Darlene your assistance at future social events.

11. Farewell To Bob and Nancy Lonsinger: Bob and Nancy recently sold their
Baywinds home and will shortly be moving back to Florida. They plan on spending their
winters in the Carolinas. Although we will miss them, we wish them well on their new
adventures in life.

12. Welcome Steve Cifranic: Steve recently purchased unit 14 from his mother. We
welcome Steve to the ―official‖ Baywinds family. Steve certainly is no stranger to
Baywinds, but now is the official owner of unit 14.

13. Brush Removal: Troy Blevins who owns The Cutting Edge Lawn Care Company,
has again offered to remove brush free of charge for Baywinds residents. He will do this
on the last Thursday of every month when he is here cutting grass. If you have
cleared brush from your property, bundle it in easily handled sizes, and leave it in your
driveway. Troy will remove it when he mows that week.

14. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. Jim
has also generously offered to cover the cost of renewing the hosting package for our
website this year. Our website address is www.baywinds.info The password to get into
the website is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the
sight as secure as possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter, trustee
meeting minutes, photos of past social events, and a host of other information that you
might like to know about Baywinds.

15. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5mph speed limit in the park.
Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5mph speed
limit is for the safety of all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed
limit in the park as well.

16. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on a
leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of others if your
pet relieves himself in the common areas, jetty or anywhere else, by cleaning up after
them.

  HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT BAYWINDS THIS
     SUMMER -- ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
  BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND BAY, AND ABOVE ALL, YOUR
              FRIENDS AT BAYWINDS!
               Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                        April 2007 – June 2007
Hello Everyone – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds News since the last
newsletter in December 2006. As always, if there are any questions, feel free
to contact any of the trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at
rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858 and Scott can be reached by e-mail at
wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440-748-2845 or 419-798-2300.

1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 19, 2007 to
attend the annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be
mailed out closer to the meeting. At this meeting, three trustees will need to
be elected. The terms of Ron Potter, Scott Prichard and Kathy Good will
expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee position, please
contact one of the current trustees so that your name may be placed on the
ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan
on giving us a helping hand! To make a day of it, we will have a hotdog and
hamburger picnic in the evening. Details later.

2. Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held at
Baywinds on Saturday March 31, 2007. After this meeting, (weather
permitting) we will be putting the docks back into position for the 2007
boating season. This is a relatively easy job and goes quickly if we have
enough help. Please consider giving some of your time on that date to help
with this project. Let Scott know if you can help us with this task. He will be
able to give you an approximate time that we will be starting.

3. Looking Ahead: We will continue our work to finish remodeling the
pump house and finish the picnic pavilion. We will be concentrating on the
cosmetic part of the construction: siding, painting, concrete etc. Scott would
like to get the ground leveled and forms set in early April, so that the concrete
floor can be poured for the pavilion. If you would be willing to help with this,
please let Scott know. We would then be able to use the Pavilion for our first
social event May 19th – the Hamburger and Hotdog get together. Of course,
we will still need your help throughout the summer to help with each phase of
the construction. No one expects you to work all day and miss out on the fun
in the water. But if you could at least volunteer and set aside some time
during the weekends, we should be able to get the finishing touches
completed.

4. A Personal Note: Doris Potter underwent knee replacement surgery in
January. I’m happy to report that she is doing very well and is up and around
and keeping her nurse (Ron) on his toes.

5. New Ohio Department of Health Regulations: We received notification
from the Ohio Department of Health of new regulations that went into effect
January 1, 2007 regarding inspection requirements of Manufactured Home
Park foundation plans. For anyone planning on installing a new home in
Baywinds, there is now a new set of hoops for you to jump through. There
are inspections of each base support installed, and home installation set up
(footing, electrical and final inspection) that occurs after January 1, 2007. We
have the information for you on file as to how to call for these inspections and
the fees involved: $153 per inspection and a $75 charge for a “seal” required
by the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission to demonstrate compliance
with OMHC installation rules. For further information, see Scott or Bob.

6. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for
the winter should be removed by no later that April 29, 2007. By then, the
grass will be growing enough that the mowers will need access so that they can
keep the park grounds looking nice.

7. Lot 25 Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you
are reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of any
boat trailer. This lot is only be used for over-flow parking of guest cars and
the occasional TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend).
You may NOT store trailers on your own lot.

8. Speed Alert: As always, please remember to observer the posted 5 mph
speed limit in the park. Some people have a tendency to drive a little faster
than they should through the park. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of
all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the
park as well.
9. Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar is
planning an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday May 5,
2007 at their place at Baywinds around 4:30 pm. It will be a simple get
together with drinks and hors d’oevres. If you are planning on attending,
please contact Darlene and Jim at 216-362-6123 or via e-mail dak54@aol.com
to let them know that you are attending and what hors d’oevre /drink you are
bringing.

As Spring approaches and the snow, ice and cold become only memories, we
can all look forward to seeing one another again and getting started on
another fun summer at Baywinds!

                                    BAYWINDS
                                TRUSTEES MEETING
                                  MARCH 31, 2007

Present: Bob Bresky, Kathy Good, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Secretary, Doris Potter
and guest, Mark Gorrell

Absent: Rosemary Trimmer

Scott called the meeting to order at 10 A.M., mainly to discuss finances and the calendar.

The minutes of the October 22, 2006 meeting were approved.

The Annual Meeting will be on May 19, 2007, gathering at 9:30 A.M. for a social time,
with the meeting starting at 10 A.M. The meeting will be at the Township Hall.

Scott is anticipating a discussion over the very small increase in the quarterly dues from
$256.60 /quarter to $262/quarter – which amounts to only $1.80 per month or 45 cents
per week. He reminded us that the Trustees have the authority to do whatever needs to be
done in order to balance the budget. Bob offered to include in his Financial Report to the
association at the annual meeting, the same information that he sent to Bill Beach
explaining the reasons for the increase. (Bill had questioned the need for the increase and
suggested that such increases should be discussed with all members and voted on by the
membership.)

Scott reported that the pavilion project will continue, and he plans to have the concrete
poured and raise the doorsills so we will be able to use it this summer. So far, we haven‘t
had to touch the reserves for this project. Scott said that help will be requested.

Bob gave the following Financial Report:

       $ 1,814.06 Check Book Balance
        6,729.00 in Savings
         1,053.67 Certificate of Deposit
         2,635.35 Certificate of Deposit earning 5.27%
            398.80 Accounts Receivable

      $12, 630.88 Total Assets

Bob also reported that $29.00 was sent to the Federal Government as we had $213.00 in
taxable income.

Darlene Kolesar then joined the meeting, and reported on the following social events for
2007:

       May 5 – Kentucky Derby Party at Jim & Darlene‘s – women must wear hats
       May 19 – (Annual Meeting) Park clean-up after which there will be a
Hamburger/Hot
               Dog Picnic with main dishes brought by even numbered units and dessert
by odd
               numbered units.
       July 7 – Rib Fest
       July 28 – Christmas in July
       August 11 – Jet Ski run and out to eat at a local restaurant later.
       August 25 – Brats and Hot Dogs
       September 15 – Clam Bake

Kathy had no report to give on the streetlights.

In response to an inquiry by Jeff Schmitz regarding what safe-guards we had in place to
protect us against misappropriation of funds by our management company, (such as
occurred with MultiVest Management Co. in Cleveland) we contacted Barb Gresh to
have her check with our Insurance carrier (Erie Insurance) to see if we were covered for
this type of loss. As of the date of the trustee‘s meeting, we were still waiting for
clarification on this issue. In the mean time, we requested that two signatures be required
to withdraw or transfer funds from any CD or savings account that we hold. One of the
signatures would have to be either Scott Pritchard‘s or Bob Bresky‘s.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:45 A.M.

Respectfully submitted,


Doris Potter
               BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                    (JULY 2006 – SEPTEMBER 2006)
Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2006. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633- 8858.

   1. Condolences to Terrie, Bill and Tim Feller: It is with sadness that we report
      that members of our Baywinds family have lost loved ones this past winter.
      Terrie Feller lost her mother over the winter months. All of us at Baywinds extend
      our heartfelt sympathies to Terrie, Bill and Tim. A Red Bud tree will be
      presented to them to plant in rememberence.
   2. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting on May 20, 2006 Rosemary
      Trimmer and Bob Bresky were elected trustees for a two year term. After the
      meeting, the board met in executive session to elect officers. The results follow:
      Scott Pritchard - President, Bob Bresky - Treasurer, Doris Potter – Secretary,
      Kathy Good, Ron Potter and Rosemary Trimmer – Trustees. The board would
      also like to thank Jeff Schmitz for his service on the board for the last two years.
   3. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean up was held at 1PM on Saturday May 20,
      2006 after the annual meeting. We had a wonderful turn out and were able to
      accomplish a lot of work in a very short period of time with everyone working
      together. Thank you to all who participated. You had a hand in beautifying the
      park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most importantly, a BIG
      THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year after year,
      donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
      John and Judy really outdid themselves this year. Scott could hardly get them all
      in his truck to bring back to Baywinds! After the clean up, we had a hamburger
      and hot dog picnic at the marina. A good time was had by all.
   4. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for
      storage of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers
      TEMPORARILY over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before
      you leave. You are also reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your
      property for the summer.
   5. Pavilion Project: The pavilion project will begin shortly as soon as all the
      necessary permits are secured. We had to apply for commercial permits and are
      awaiting their issue. The construction will begin with phase three , then phases
      one and two. At the time of the approval of this project in July of 2005, many of
      you expressed interest in helping with the construction. We will need muscles to
      help complete each phase of the project. Please remember this when the project
      begins. We will all benefit by its completion.
   6. Parking of Golf Carts at the Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
      carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the
      launch ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John
      Meyer). For emergency access needs, please do not park golf carts on the jetty.
      It is tempting to want to park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must
      be kept free and clear. On another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using
      golf carts should be accompanied by an adult and observe the 5 mph speed
      limit. We have received complaints from residents and neighbors. No one
      should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or Commadore Court. Please be
    cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts will not have to be
    instituted.
7. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on April 1,
    2006 after the Trustees meeting. The new method of free floating and tying off
    the docks in the center of the marina works well. This is the second year we have
    tried this, and it has saved the association a bundle of money. Thank you to all
    who turned out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land
    moorings for the summer – Craig Good, Mark Gorrell, Jim Kolesar, Frank
    Modliszewski, Cliff Gerber, Bill Beach, Ron Potter, John Meyer, Scott
    Pritchard, and Bob Bresky.
8. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
    provided later. July 1, Rib Fest; July 29 Third Annual Christmas In July – We
    will prepare four Turkeys and everyone will be asked to bring their favorite
    Christmas dish. You are also asked to decorate the week before (July 22nd).
    Last year’s event was a tremendous success and a lot of fun. In Mid August, we
    will have our second annual River Run with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run
    ends in Freemont at the Tackle Box Restaurant for lunch and presentation of
    “awards”. Cliff Gerber is in charge of the River Run. The Date will be
    announced later. September 2, Fish Fry – Bill and Sue Beach are hosting this
    and providing the fish. September 16, Our annual Clam Bake
9. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim Kolesar, who work so hard to plan
    and put together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your
    attendance at these events. It makes it much easier for them to plan the food
    needs and details for each event. They would also appreciate some assistance in
    set up before the event and clean up after the event. Many people come to the
    social but fail to realize just how much work goes into planning the event and
    getting things ready so that everyone can have a good time. Please offer Jim and
    Darlene your assistance at future social events.
10. Street Lighing: Kathy Good is checking on our options to change our street
    lighting. Details will be provided later as soon as Kathy does some more
    investigating. In the mean time, the board voted to remove ourselves from the
    expired maintenance contract with Ohio Edison for the street lighting and have
    them placed on a metered basis with a switch that we can control. This should
    save us some money on our monthly bill from Ohio Edison. We are still under a
    maintenance contract for the marina lighting.
11. As Needed Crock Replacements: Water leaks were discovered in the water shut
    off crocks at French‘s and Good‘s. Arrangements have been made to have them
    replaced.
12. Donation of Storage Shed: Bob Bresky is replacing his current storage shed
    with a larger one and has offered to donate the old one to the association. The
    board voted to accept the donation and discussed with everyone at the annual
    meeting where it should be placed. People asked to postpone the decision as to
    where to place the storage shed until they could look at the options suggested
    while attending the picnic that evening. That evening and throughout the day,
    people expressed their concerns and suggestions. It seems to be the consensus
    that the storage shed should be placed north of the pump house on the lot line
           against the current snow fence. The shed measures 8‘3‖ wide by 12‘3‖ deep. The
           sight will be prepared with gravel. Several people will be needed to help move
           the shed if we can‘t find someone to move it for us.
       13. House At the Entrance: The house at the entrance to the park has been sold.
           The new owners will have full use of their dock as long as the pay their portion of
           the monthly maintenance fee. If they should choose not do so, by agreement, the
           dock will return to Baywinds ownership.
       14. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If
           you haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info The password
           to get into the sight is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we
           may keep the sight as secure as reasonably possible. You will find a copy of the
           current newsletter posted at the site, photos of past social events, and other
           information that you might like to know about Baywinds.
       15. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in the park as
           you drive down the road. Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than
           we should. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all residents and guests.
           Please advise your GUESTS of the speed limit in the park as well.
       16. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on
           a leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of your
           neighbors if your pets relieve themselves on other people‘s property, by cleaning
           up after them.

   TO EVERYONE: HAVE A FUN, SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT
   BAYWIDS THIS SUMMER – ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
   BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND BAY AND ABOVE ALL, YOUR FRIENDS
   AT BAYWINDS.



           Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                              April 2006 – June 2006
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in
December 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I
can be reached by e-mail at rbresy@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858 and Scott can be reached by
e-mail at wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440 -748-2845 or 419 – 798 – 2300.


       1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 20, 2006 to attend the
          annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to
          the meeting. At this meeting, two trustees will need to be elected. The terms of Jeff
          Schmitz and Bob Bresky will expire. If you are interested in running for an open
          trustee position, please contact one of the trustees so that your name can be placed on
          the ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan on
        giving us a helping hand. To make a day of it, we will have a hot dog and hamburgers
        picnic in the evening. Details later.
   2.   Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held at Baywinds on
        Saturday April 1, 2006. After this meeting, we will be putting the docks back into
        position for the 2006 boating season. This is a relatively easy job and goes quickly if
        we have enough help. Please consider giving some of your time on that date to help
        with this project. Please let Scott know if you can help us with this task. He will be
        able to give you an approximate time that we will be starting.
   3.   Looking Ahead: The only major project that the board approved was the remodeling
        of the pump house and building of the picnic pavilion. This project was put on hold at
        the last trustees meeting but will begin this Spring. All members who voted in favor of
        this project and indicated that they would help with the construction, please remember
        that promise as we begin. Contact Scott for details and ways that you can help.
        Another possible change in the park may be in the lighting. Kathy Good volunteered to
        check with Ohio Edison to seek an alternate method of illuminating the park at night.
   4.   Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for the winter
        should be removed by no later than April 30, 2006. By then, the grass will be
        growing and the mowers will need unrestricted access so that they can keep the park
        grounds looking nice.
   5.   Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are
        reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot
        is only to be used for over-flow parking of gust cars and the occasional TEMPORARY
        parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend). You may also NOT store trailers on
        your own lot.
   6.   We’ve Got You On RADAR:  As always, please remember to observe the 5 mph
        speed limit in the park. Some people have a tendency to drive a little faster than they
        should. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all the residents and their guests.
        Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the park as well.
                                          (OVER PLEASE)
   7.   Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar asked me to let
        you know that she is planning an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on
        Saturday May 6, 2006 at their place at Baywinds around 4:30 pm. It will be a simple
        get together with drinks and hors d‘oeuvres. If you are planning on attending, please
        contact Darlene and Jim at 216-362-6123 or via e-mail jimpp22171@aol.com to let
        them know that you are coming and what hors d‘oeuvre /drink your are bringing.

As Spring approaches and the snow, ice and cold become only memories, we can all look
forward to seeing one another again and getting started on another fun summer at Baywinds.
Until then, take care.

                                    BAYWINDS
                                TRUSTEES MEETING
                                   APRIL 1, 2006

Present: Bob Bresky, Kathy Good, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard and guests
Mark Gorrell and Darlene Kolesar
Absent: Jeff Schmitz

Scott called the meeting to order at 9:10 A.M.

Annual Meeting: The Annual Meeting of BayWinds will be at 10 A.M. on Saturday,
May 20, 2006, at the Danbury Township Hall in Lakeside-Marblehead, Ohio. There will
be a social time from 9:30 A.M. to 10 A.M. Election of two Trustees will take place, as
Bob and Jeff‘s terms expire. Bob has agreed to run again.

Park Cleanup: There will be a cleanup of the Park after the Annual Meeting, at 1 P.M.
Scott will order the same amount of mulch as he did in 2005. Hamburgers and hot dogs
will be served in the evening.

Scott reported: The Ottawa County District Board of Health commented that our Park
is the nicest one to inspect -- with very few citations being issued.
         Scott spoke to Len Parton, and was told that the house next to our entrance has
been sold to the people that have been living there. Scott reminded them that the Park‘s
lot line runs half way through the homes side porch, and that nothing can be done to the
porch as the Park owns half of it. The homeowners asked if the street could be widened
in the area by the house for parking, and the Trustees voted against it.
        Scott also had new dock pins made to replace some that were bent or damaged, at
a cost of only $100.
        In addition, Scott reported that the Pump House remodeling would begin with
Phase Three. Greisch will dig the eight holes for the Pavilion at a cost of only $25 each.
We will also need to add another course of block on the Pump House complex in order to
replace the roof. The project will begin in early May. Phases One and Two will be
postponed.

Bob reported: He and Mark are replacing their barn with a larger one and have offered
their current one to the Association unless it is sold. The Trustees agreed to accept the
barn if it is not sold. Placement of it will be determined later.

Kathy reported: The lease with Ohio Edison for our streetlights has now expired. Ohio
Edison does not have any new lighting fixtures to replace the ones we have. Kathy
knows of lighting fixtures used in Arizona. She will be traveling to Arizona soon, and
will obtain a brochure. In the meantime she will ask Ohio Edison to install a meter for
our lights, so we will have control of them.

Darlene reported: The following dates for our socials:

       May 6 – Derby Day
       May 20 – Hamburgers and Hot Dogs
       July 1 – Rib Fest
       July 22 – Trim (decorate) homes for Christmas in July celebration
       Mid August – Jet Ski River Run
       Sept. 2 – Labor Day Fish Fry

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 10:30 A.M.

The Trustees then proceeded to install the remaining docks, along with the help of Bill
Beach, Cliff Gerber, Craig Good, Mark Gorrell, Jim Kolesar, John Meyer and Frank
Modliazewski.

Respectfully submitted,

Ronald J. Potter




                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                          (OCTOBER 2005 – DECEMBER 2005)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in July 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees
– Scot Pritchard, Ron Potter, Kathy Good, Jeff Schmitz or Bob Bresky. I can be reached
by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330- 633- 8858.

1.Trustee’s meeting of July 2, 2005: This was a short meeting to discuss some property
line problems with unit numbers 2,4 and 23. Len Parten (who, with his partners, used to
own the park) has agreed to help clear up the problems with the property lines in concert
with Prosser who certified the plat maps. The most significant problem is with lot 23 –
Ralph Meyer. In order to make these lots saleable, we need to make sure the lot
boundaries are accurately recorded. Ralph has offered the association a donation of
$1000 for the board‘s cooperation in cleaning up the property boundary discrepancies on
his property as well as the other areas of the park that were inaccurately recorded. The
board voted to accept this offer. The process of making the corrections is currently
underway.

2. Special Membership Meeting of July 23, 2005: At this meeting Baywinds residents
heard proposed plans regarding the remodeling of the pump house and building of a
pavilion. The estimated cost to do the project and build a kitchen, is $7250 – this is
completing as much of the work as possible ourselves. Some residents have offered to
donate cabinetry or appliances etc. The project can be broken down into six phases and
can be stopped or started at any time. After some discussion, a vote was taken, and by a
margin of 14 – 1, the project was approved. The nice thing about the project is that we
can fund the project by using some of the money in our reserves. No special assessment
to complete the project is anticipated. We will need muscles to help complete each phase
of the project and a number of residents at the meeting expressed interest in helping with
these phases. Please remember this as the project begins. We will all benefit by its
completion.

3.New Mailboxes Installed: At the time of this writing, we are in the process of
installing new mailboxes at the entrance to the park. They are white plastic and will be
mounted using a ―nautical‖ theme.

4.Sad News: By now, most of you have probably heard about the tragic accident suffered
by Nick Kolesar, (son of Darlene and Jim), on August 22nd. He was lighting a fire in a
Chiminea when a nearby gas can exploded causing Nick to suffer 2nd and 3rd degree
burns to about 22% of his body. At the time of this writing, he was transferred from the
burn unit to critical care at Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland. The good news is
that Nick is expected to make a full recovery, but it will be a lengthy process. Cards and
good wishes can be sent to Metrohealth Medical Center, 2500 Metrohealth Drive,
Cleveland, Ohio 44109 c/o Nick Kolesar. By the time you receive this, Nick may very
well be recuperating at home. Jim and Darlene‘s home address is 6975 Paula Drive,
Middleburgh Heights, Ohio 44130 . Please keep Nick, Darlene, Jim and Jimmy in your
prayers. They will need all of our help and support at this difficult time.

5. RIB FEST , CHRISTMAS IN JULY and POKER RUN: It goes without saying
that the Rib Fest held the Fourth of July weekend and the Christmas in July party, were,
without a doubt, the social events of the season! We had a fantastic turn out of residents
and friends for both events and everyone had a wonderful time. Santa ―Bill Beach‖
passed out gifts to the kids and then a gift exchange took place amongst residents. Many
of the houses were decorated with Christmas lights and trees etc. It was fun parading up
and down the street enjoying the lighting displays. Everyone was encouraged to help
judge the lighting displays including the kids. However, there seemed to be some foul
play and bribery taking place, because an unnamed source tells me that there was candy
being used for bribery at the home of one of our residents to entice the little children to
vote for them! 
Winner of the lighting contest was Scott and Denny with runner up status going to Bob
and Mark. These were memorable weekends. Photos taken during the events have been
posted on the Baywinds website and also on our bulletin board at the pump house.
Another good time was had by some Baywinds residents when they participated in the
first annual Baywinds Poker Run across the west basin and down the river to Fremont.
About a 70 mile round trip. We all had lunch at the Tackle Box where the trophy was
awarded to the winners – Todd Zimmerman and Scott Aliff. Congratulations!

6.WEBSITE: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. It can
be found at www.baywinds.info The password to get into the site is ―letmein‖ Please
keep the password confidential so that we can keep the site as secure as possible. Jim can
post photos on the site or other items of interest. You can send photos or items to him by
e-mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or ―snail‖mail him actual photos to his home address
and he will scan them and put them on the website. Photos of our social events this
summer a currently posted there.
7.BRUSH & BRANCH REMOVAL: Our lawn service provider --The Cutting Edge –
has again offered a special service to us at no cost – the removal of tree trimmings and
cut brush. They will remove the debris the first Thursday of every month. If you have
any cut brush or tree trimmings, tie them together in reasonably sized bundles and leave
them at the edge of your driveway at the appropriate time. They will then remove them
when they are here to cut the grass. They generally are here on Thursdays to mow.

8.WINTER IS ON THE WAY: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave water on
during the winter months, YOU MUST MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
ARE WRAPPED WTH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or so. If
your heat tape is old, you may want to have it checked to make sure that it is in
working order. Also it is the responsibility of each homeowner who chooses to shut
their water off for the winter to MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER IS SHUT OFF
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CROCK AND NOT JUST AT THE SERVICE
VALVE.

9.REMOVAL OF BOATS and POSITIONING OF DOCKS FOR THE WINTER:
Boats will need to be removed from the marina so that the docks can be secured for the
winter by NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15TH! If for some reason you need to leave
your boat in the water past this date, please see Scott so that special arrangements can
be made for you. The process that we used last year for securing the docks for the winter
by free floating them in the center of the marina worked very well and saved us a lot of
money. We would like to do that again this year, but would appreciate more help. It is
easy to do, just time consuming. If you can help us with this project, please contact
Scott to let him know. Now that we know how to do it, the project should go faster. We
just need several helping hands. Please consider helping.

10.E-MAIL ADDRESS UPDATE: Sometimes it is necessary for us to communicate
with everyone quickly. One way to do so is by e-mail. I have e-mail addresses for
everyone in the park EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING RESIDENTS: #4 Karen Brown;
#14 Margaret Cifranic; #22 Tim Feller; #17 Bill and Terri Feller; #2 Bob and Nancy
Lonsinger; #23 John/ Ralph Meyer; #12 Frank & Gloria Modlisjewski; #20 Tim and
Kathy Richardson; #1 Todd and Kristen Zimmerman; #1 Scott and Shari Aliff. If you
have an e-mail address, please send that to me at rbresky@neo.rr.com and I will add you
to the address book and also forward that information on to Scott.

11.THANK YOU: Many people throughout the year have taken it upon themselves to
do little jobs in the park or provide things for the park that benefit us all. Thank you so
much to all of you who have done so. The fruits of your labors can be seen throughout
the park as we look at the beauty of our summer playground. In the past, I have tried to
recognize all the folks that did nice things for us throughout the year. This year, I will
not, because I am always afraid of offending someone by omitting their name or not
knowing of the contribution they made. In any event, THANK YOU ONE AND ALL
FOR YOUR HELP IN KEEPING BAYWINDS LOOKING SHARP AND A
PLEASANT PLACE TO LIVE, VACATION and PLAY!
                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                           (JULY 2005 – SEPTEMBER 2005)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633- 8858.

1.Welcome To The New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to again say
welcome to our new residents Mike and Rosemary Trimmer who purchased Bob and
Peggy Lacour‘s summer place and Tim and Kathy Richardson who purchased Fred and
Emma Luzius‘ summer place. Please introduce yourself to them when you see them and
welcome them into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2.New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting held on May 21, 2005, Kathy Good,
Ron Potter and Scott Pritchard were elected as trustees for a two year term to fill the three
vacant seats. After the meeting, the board met in executive session and I agreed to stay
on as Treasurer, Scott Pritchard agreed to remain as President, and Doris Potter agreed to
remain as appointed Secretary.

3.Christmas In July: Please mark your calendar for Saturday July 23, 2005 when we
will hold our second annual Christmas In July Extravaganza. Last year was such a
success with everyone decorating their homes and the fun time had by all, we thought we
should definitely do it again. More details will follow.

4.Park Clean Up: The annual park clean up was held at 1PM on Saturday May 21, 2005
after the annual meeting. Although we did not have as large of a turn out as last year, we
were still able to accomplish a lot of work in a short period of time with all of us working
together. Thank you to all who participated. You had a hand in beautifying the park and
your efforts will be visible all summer. We all own a piece of this park and share in the
responsibility of maintaining it. Thank you to John and Judy Keiser who so generously
year after year donate the many flats of beautiful flowers that are planted to beautify the
common areas.

5.Lot #25 Parking: Everyone is reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for
storage of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers
TEMPORARILY over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you
leave. You are also reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on you property for
the summer.

6.Parking of Cars and Golf Carts at the Marina: Please remember not to park cars or
golf carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the
launch ramp. If you park your car at the marina, please park it adjacent to and near the
pump house. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer).
For emergency access needs, please do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting
to want to park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and
clear. Please abide by this request.

7.Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info . The password to get into
the sight is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the sight
as secure as reasonably possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter posted at
the sight, photos of past social events, and other information that you might like to know
about Baywinds.

8.We’ve Got You On RADAR: Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in
the park as you drive down the newly resurfaced road. Without the usual bumps, we
might have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5 mph limit is for the
safety of all residents and guests. Please also advise your GUESTS of the speed limit in
the park.

9.New Projects: New white plastic mailboxes were purchased for the park to replace the
old rusting metal boxes. They still need to be installed. If you would like to help with
this project please let one of the trustees know. Also, at the annual meeting, a proposal
was put forth to look into the possibility and costs of remodeling the pump house, moving
the bathroom, installing a kitchen facility and building a picnic pavilion. With the help
and talents of a few Baywinds residents who have already expressed an interest in
working on this project, we may be able to complete it by just using some of the money
that we have built up over the years in our ―reserves‖ account without an additional
assessment to the membership. There was sufficient interest by the members who were
present at the annual meeting and the board was charged with developing plans and
costing them out. After that is done, another meeting will be held to present the cost and
feasibility to the membership for their approval.

10.Docks: We were fortunate to get through the past winter with very little in the way of
damage or repairs to the docks. Last fall it was discovered that a section of the main
floater had a hole in it on the bottom. It is believed that this puncture was caused by the
rocks as the water level dropped in the marina. Because winter was fast approaching, we
were unable to get it fixed then. On March 25, 2005 several of us removed that section
and floated it to the ramp where it was removed and repaired, then refloated for a cost of
$211. The new method for free floating and tying off the docks in the center of the
marina worked well and saved the association a bundle of money. Estimated savings
were between $600 - $1100. Thank you to all who turned out to help in the fall and/or in
the spring – Scott Pritchard, Scott Aliff, Todd Zimmerman, Bill Beach, Tim Feller, Ron
Potter, Mark Gorrell, Bob Bresky, Denny Fitzpatrick, Craig and Kathy Good, John
Meyer and Jim Kolesar. (My apologies if I have missed anyone.) To all-- thank you for
your hard work on behalf of the association.



11.Condolences to Rosemary & Michael Trimmer: It is with sadness that we report
that members of our Baywinds family have lost loved ones this past winter. It was
recently brought to my attention that Rosemary Trimmer lost her father this past winter.
All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt sympathies to Rosemary and Mike.

12.Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim Kolesar who work so hard to plan and
put together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance
at these events. It makes it much easier for them to plan the food needs and details for
each event. They would also appreciate some assistance in set up before the event and
clean up after the event. Many people come to the socials but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please think about offering Darlene and Jim some assistance at future
social events.

TO EVERYONE: HAVE A FUN, SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT
BAYWINDS THIS SUMMER-- ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND ABOVE ALL – YOUR FRIENDS AT
BAYWINDS.

                    Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                                   April 2005 – June 2005
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in December
2004. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be reached by e-
mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633- 8858 and Scott can be reached by e-mail at
wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440- 748-2845 or 419- 798-2300.
   1.   Speedy Recovery To All: I‘m glad to report that Bill Feller and Doris Potter are doing well after
        their past surgeries. Richard Kmetz recently had rotator cuff surgery and is also recuperating
        nicely. I‘m sure all of them might enjoy a call or card if you have the time to do so.

   2.   Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 21, 2005 to attend the annual
        Baywinds Meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to the meeting. At this
        meeting, three trustees will need to be elected. The terms of Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and John
        Meyer will expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee position, please contact one
        of the trustees so that your name can be placed on the ballot. Also, after the meeting, we will have
        our usual park clean up. Please plan on giving us a helping hand. To make a day of it, we will
        have a hot dogs and hamburgers picnic in the evening. Details later.

   3.   Looking Ahead: At their last meeting, the board discussed proposed projects for this year which
        include the following: replace the rusted metal mailboxes at the front entrance with new plastic
        mailboxes; gut the pump house, move the bathroom and create a larger storage area. If you have
        any other suggestions, please let us know by contacting your trustees.

   4.   Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held in March 2005.

   5.   Marina Lighting: We finally were able to get Ohio Edison to move the security light to the other
        side of the marina to illuminate the marina and jetty. Unfortunately when they did this, the light
        didn‘t work anymore. They have been called and are scheduled to come out and fix the problem.

   6.   Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are reminded
        that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot is only to be used
        for over-flow parking of guest cars and the occasional TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such
        as over the weekend). You may also NOT store trailers on your own lot.

   7.   We’ve Got You On RADAR :--Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in the park
        as you drive down the newly resurfaced road. Without the usual bumps, we might have a
        tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5 mph limit is for the safety of all residents and
        guests. Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the park.

   8.   Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for the winter should be
        removed by no later than April 30, 2005. By then, the grass will be growing and the mowers will
        need unobstructed access so that they can keep the park grounds looking nice.

   9.   Get Well Card To Our Neighbor: Carol Kmetz informed me recently that our neighbor Paul
        Dragan on Linda Drive was recently diagnosed with stage four brain cancer and is taking radiation
        treatments. If you know Paul, it might be nice to send him a card. His address is Paul Dragan ,
        2274 S. Linda Drive, Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio 43440-9724

   We are all probably getting Spring Fever by now and can‘t wait for all the snow, cold and ice to
   disappear for good. It will be great to see all of you again soon and get started on another fun summer
   at Baywinds. Until then, take care.


                   Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                            (January 2005 – March 2005)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in October. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of
the trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or by
phone at 330-633-8858.

   1. 2004 Budget Approved: The trustees approved the operating budget
      for 2005 at their meeting on Saturday October 9, 2004 with no new
      increases in assessments.
   2. Marina Ready For Winter: The marina is now ready for whatever
      Old Man Winter has in store for us. This year, the trustees voted to
      try something new to save money. After investigating what others
      have done with their docks as an alternative to pulling them from the
      water, it was decided to leave them in the water, disconnect them from
      the land and float them securely tied off in the middle of the marina.
      After the docks were disconnected from the jetty, they were gently
      moved over to the Main floater and finger docks where they were all
      bolted together. Then the arms that hold the main floater in place were
      disconnected and removed. The entire assembly was then floated to
      the center of the marina where it was securely tied off using many
      lines. We wish to thank Craig and Kathy Good, Tim Feller, Ron
      Potter, Scott Pritchard, Denny Fitzpatrick, Mark Gorrell and Bob
      Bresky for battling the rain, gale force winds and occasional sunshine
      to get the docks in place for the winter. On that day in October, we
      were also able to get the summer furniture put away, the flower beds
      cleaned up and the pump house swept out and rearranged and the
      water lines shut off and blown out.
   3. Dumpster Diving: A special thanks to our President Scott Pritchard
      who continuously looks for ways to save the association money. He
      was able to extract from various dumpsters (in a less than
      presidential manner), the materials necessary to build the
      ―contraption‖ which we used to lift and secure the walkway ramps to
      the Jetty docks, when getting the marina ready for the winter.
   4. Hart Asphalt And The Road: At the trustees meeting on October
      9th, the board discussed the completed road project and a few
      concerns that we had regarding ―soft‖ spots. Hart Asphalt was
      contacted and they told us that the ―soft‖ spots would harden over
      time and that if there was any problem in the Spring, they would be
      out to address them at that time.
   5. Ohio Edison: Ohio Edison removed or trimmed selected trees on the
      east side of the park in order to clear utility lines from danger of
      damage by the trees. In addition, we have submitted a work order for
      Ohio Edison to move the sodium vapor light on the utility pole on
     the east side of the park to the utility pole on the west side and focus
     its beam on the marina to illuminate the marina at night. In its current
     position, the light is obscured by the trees and is not being used to its
     fullest potential.
  6. Wishing A Speedy Recovery to Bill Feller and Doris Potter: We
     would like to wish Bill Feller and Doris Potter a speedy recovery from
     their recent surgeries. Hope you are up and around quickly.
  7. Annual Meeting: Please reserve Saturday May 21, 2005 and plan on
     attending the annual Baywinds Meeting. Details of the time and place
     will be mailed out prior to the meeting. At this meeting, three trustees
     will need to be elected. The terms of Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and
     John Meyer will expire. If you are interested in running for an open
     trustee position, please contact one of the current trustees so that your
     name can be placed on the ballot.
  8. Looking Ahead: The board discussed proposed projects for next year
     which include the following: replace the rusted metal mailboxes at
     the front entrance with new plastic mailboxes; gut the pump house
     and move the bathroom and create a larger storage area. Any other
     suggestions or ideas? If so, contact any of your trustees.

Finally, all of the trustees would like to wish you and your family a
Wonderful and Blessed Holiday Season and a Healthy and Prosperous
New Year!
             BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                 (OCTOBER 2004 – DECEMBER 2004)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in July 2004. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees
– Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter, Jeff Schmitz, John Meyer or Bob Bresky. I can be reached
by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858.

1.Welcome To New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to offer a hearty
welcome to our new residents Mike and Rosemary Trimmer who purchased Bob and
Peggy Lacour‘s summer place and Tim and Kathy Richardson who purchased Fred and
Emma Luzius‘ summer place. We wish you a grand time at Baywinds and welcome you
into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2. Special Meeting To Approve The Road Project: A special meeting was held on
June 19, 2004 to vote on the road project. Ken Sanders from Hart Asphalt Inc. met with
residents to answer questions regarding grading of the road and driveways, and the chip
and seal project. The road project was approved by the membership. After the meeting,
Ken gave individual estimates for driveways to anyone that wanted their drives done.
Target date for the start of the project was to be July 19, 2004 depending on weather and
any unforeseen delays. At the time of this writing, the grading has been completed, but
the resurfacing has not. Ken reminded residents to be careful with bicycle and
motorcycle kick stands. They will go through the chip and seal.

3.You Are Getting MUCH BETTER!: Darlene Kolesar asked me to thank you for
your RSVP‘s for the fish fry and our Christmas in July Extravaganza. She had a 98%
RSVP rate. This makes it so much easier for her to plan the food and other things
necessary for a successful social event.

4.Thank You To Sandy Shores Partnership: The owners of the house at the front of
our road voluntarily chose to contribute to our road project. Our agreement with them
states that they are only responsible for improvements to the marina. We appreciate
Sandy Shores Partnership‘s contribution to the road resurfacing.

5. Brush & Branch Removal: Our lawn service provider – The Cutting Edge has
offered a special service to us at no cost – removal of tree trimmings or cut brush. He
will remove it the first Thursday of every month. If you have any brush or tree trimmings
tie them together in reasonably sized bundles and leave them in your driveway at the
appropriate time. Our lawn care this year hasn‘t been quite up to par with what it has
been in the past. Please be aware that this was due to health problems and the inability to
employ reliable help. The Cutting Edge is making every effort to improve.
6.Temporary Hold on Water and Electric Lines To The Docks: Because of
restrictions imposed by the building department for extending the water and electric lines
to the docks, the project will become more costly and probably prohibitive (at least for
this season) since we have the major road project in the works. As a result, this project
has been put on hold and will be discussed again at a later date. As a temporary
alternative, members who wish to wash their boats can use the fresh water spigots located
near the davit and the floating dock. Residents who dock their boats off the floating dock
got together and chipped in for a hose reel and hose for their use. Those who dock on the
davit side of the marina can simply connect their own hose to the fresh water spigot there.

7.Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t seen it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info The password to get into the
site is ―letmein‖ Please keep the password confidential so that we can keep the site a
secure as reasonably possible. Jim can post pictures on the website or other items of
interest. You can send pictures or items to him by e-mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or
―snail‖ mail him an actual photo or article and he will scan it and post it for you on our
website. His home address will be found on our Baywinds unit owners listing. You will
always find a copy of the current newsletter posted at the sight, plus other pertinent
information that you might wish to know about Baywinds.

8. Canopy Purchase: The trustees authorized the purchase of a canopy to be used
during social events. It was obtained by Jim & Darlene Kolesar for a ―good price‖ 
We used it for the first time at our Christmas In July fish fry. Thank you to Bill French,
Richard Kmetz and Jim Kolesar for ―engineering‖ the erection of the new canopy.

9.Christmas In July – The Social Event Of The Season: It goes without saying that
our Christmas in July social was, without a doubt, a fantastic success. Everyone was
encouraged to decorate their homes with Christmas lights. Baywinds was ablaze with
color and the holiday spirit. The fish fry was a total success with over 60 people
attending. Even ―Santa‖ – with the help of Bill Feller, made an appearance! Such and
undertaking can only be as successful as the fine people who volunteered their time and
talents to make it a success. We should all thank Bill and Sue Beach for their donation of
over sixty pounds of Perch; John and Judy Keiser , Kathy and Craig Good and Nancy and
Bob Lonsinger for also donating fish; Sue Beach, Sue French, Carole Kmetz and Darlene
Kolesar for breading it all; Sue Beach for frying all the fish; Darlene and Jim Kolesar,
Bill and Sue French and Jeff Schmitz for all their help with the french fries and ―hotdogs‖
for those that didn‘t want fish. This was a huge undertaking and was successful because
of all the fine people who pitched in to help. Thank you one and all!

10. Thank You!!!!! Many people throughout the year have taken it upon themselves to
do little jobs in the park or provide things for the park that benefit us all. Thank you so
much to all of you who have done so. The annual park cleanup on May 22, 2004 brought
out an army of helpers that accomplished a large amount of work in a very short period of
time. The fruits of their labors can be seen as we proudly look at the beauty of our park.
As summer approached many others helped maintain the park. I will attempt to list some
of the people and their contributions that I know of. Please forgive me if you did
something for us all and I missed acknowledging your contribution. It is always a risk to
do this. In any event, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE HELPED MAKE
BAYWINDS A NICE PLACE TO WEEKEND, VACATION OR LIVE ! A ―tip of
the hat‖ goes to: Jeff Schmitz for ―weed wacking‖ the weeds in the marina the 4th of July
weekend and Richard Kmetz for spraying them; Richard & Carole Kmetz and Scott
Pritchard & Denny Fitzpatrick for trimming the bushes and trees near the fence; Nancy
Lonsinger for helping keep the flower beds around lot 25 looking nice; John and Judy
Keiser for donating even more plantings to beautify the park; Jeff and Barb Schmitz for
creating the flower bed at the base of the flag pole; Bob Bresky & Mark Gorrell for
donating a fax machine/copier to the association – it is set up at Scott‘s place. If you
need to send or receive a fax or make a copy of something – see Scott; Richard Kmetz
and Denny Fitzpatrick for painting the bottoms of the docks before they went into the
water this spring; Darlene and Jim Kolesar for chairing the social events; Jim Luteran for
putting together the Baywinds website and maintaining it; Richard & Carole Kmetz for
planting the additional plants that John and Judy Keiser donated to the park and for
keeping the flower beds clean and deadheading the flowers; Scott Pritchard and Richard
Kmetz for the many hours expended in dealing with the business of Baywinds. Thank
you one and all!

11. Private Security Light: The trustees discussed moving our private security light
from the utility pole on the east side of our property to the utility pole on the west side
our property and focusing the light on the marina. This would illuminate the marina at
night, making better use of the light. In its current position, most of the light it puts out is
blocked by the trees. Ohio Edison has been contacted and will move the light for us
according to their schedule.

12. Winter Is On Its Way: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave water on during
the winter months, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
ARE WRAPPED WITH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or so. If
your heat tape is that old, you may want to have it checked out to make sure that it is in
working order.

13. Baywinds Sign: In the previous newsletter, we reported that our sign at the entrance
to the park on Bayshore Road might be encroaching on our neighbor‘s property. They
informed us that they may want to erect a fence on the property line. Bill Feller and
Richard Kmetz searched out the survey pins and found that the sign is clearly on our
property, but the surrounding gardens are not. We probably will need to move (remove)
the garden around the sign in the Spring.

14. Removal Of Boats: Boats will need to be removed from the marina so that the docks
can be secured for the winter by NO LATER THAN SUNDAY OCTOBER 17th. If you
need to leave your boat in longer than that, see Scott so that special arrangements can be
made for you.
15. Dilemma, Dilemma, Dilemma: The Dilemma is what to do with the docks this
winter. Mike Belkhe has removed the docks for us for the last several years at a cost of
$450, but will not be able to do it anymore. (Prior to that, we paid $1200). It is the
opinion of the people who have worked on the docks for us (Mike Belkhe, Molnar, and
LakeCraft,) that we are doing more damage to the dock bottoms by removing them each
year than we would if we would just leave them in the water for the winter. All three
have proposed that we disconnect the docks from the jetty, and float the jetty docks over
to the floating finger docks. They would then be nestled in between the finger docks and
secured as a unit. The poles that hold the floater would then be disconnected, and all the
docks floated to the center of the marina where they would be tied off. This would allow
them to float freely with the ice -- thus eliminating our usual problems with ice and the
docks. The board discussed this at its last meeting on August 28, 2004 and was not in
unanimous agreement. The opinion was four to one in favor of floating the docks in the
water for the winter. If you have strong feelings regarding this issue or would like more
information, please call or see Scott. NO DECISION HAS BEEN MADE! We would
like more input from you. The Clam Bake is being held on September 18th and an
INFORMAL DISCUSSION can be had at that time if you should so desire. The decision
will then be made by the board to either remove or float the docks based on feedback that
we receive from you. PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOUR OPINIONS ARE ON
THIS MATTER.


16.Clam Bake: Darlene and Jim Kolesar are busy planning our annual clam bake which
is scheduled to take place on Saturday September 18, 2004 at 4:00 p.m. The cost is
$14.50/clam bake; $5.75/extra dozen clams and for those that don‘t want clams,
$9.00/chicken bake. The cost includes a dozen clams, ½ chicken, corn, sweet potato,
clam chowder and rolls. Even side of the street is to bring a small dessert and the odd
side of the street is to bring a small hors d‘oeuvere. The clam bake is not just for
Baywinds residents. You are welcome to invite friends as well. You are reminded that
you MUST ORDER and PAY IN FULL by September 8th to Darlene at lot #9 or mail a
check to: Darlene Kolesar, 6875 Paula Drive, Middleburg Hts., Ohio 44130. NO
ORDERS CAN BE ACCEPTED AFTER SEPTEMBER 8, 2004.

17. Got Gas???: Scott would like to thank all of the people who came out to support
him as he and his guests were towed into safe harbor by jet ski after he ran of out gas just
off Dempsey‘s near Johnson‘s Island. He said it touched his heart to know that so many
people were concerned about his safety – not to mention all the ―hootnin & hollerin‖ that
took place as he was towed into our marina. 
                          Baywinds Trustees Meeting Minutes
                                Saturday June 5, 2004

Present: Scott Pritchard, Jeff Schmitz and Bob Bresky
Absent: Ron Potter, John Meyer

The meeting convened at 9:30am and adjourned at 11:05am.

   1. Road Resurfacing: Ken Sanders of Hart Asphalt has agreed to attend the special
      membership meeting that will be held to approve the final plans for the road
      resurfacing. The purpose of his attendance at the meeting is to answer any
      questions the members may have and also to give individual estimates for
      driveways for anyone contemplating having their driveway paved at the time that
      the road is resurfaced. The date of the special meeting was set for Saturday June
      19, 2004 at 9:30AM at Baywinds. A letter will be sent out to the membership as
      soon as possible to notify them of the meeting and the approximate cost to them
      for their share of the road resurfacing. The board estimated that the approximate
      cost to each homeowner will be about $450. The board also decided to earmark
      $3000 of our $5,000 reserve account to help defray the cost of the road
      resurfacing. The road will be resurfaced to a width of 14ft. – 16 ft.
   2. Preliminary Work: Preliminary work that must be done before the road can be
      resurfaced is the replacement of three crocks and the installation of the connecting
      water lines. The three crocks that must be done now are at Zimmerman‘s – crock
      and line, Lonsinger‘s - crock only and Gerber‘s - crock and line. Jack‘s
      Excavating will do the work at a cost of $450 for each crock and $250 for the
      connecting water line. The association is responsible for the crocks, but the
      individual homeowner is responsible for the connecting line. In addition, we must
      install a crock and cover at Beach‘s for the two shut off valves for each side of the
      street. All of this work must be done before the resurfacing can take place. Jack
      of Jack‘s excavating indicated that he was about two weeks behind at this time,
      but promised to have our work completed before the fourth of July. That would
      put our resurfacing project completion time at about mid July.
   3. Letter to Chris Garceau: It was brought to the board‘s attention that Chris may
      be shutting off the water in the winter to individual homes improperly thus putting
      the water system in jeopardy of freezing. The board will discuss this further at
      it‘s next meeting and draft a letter to Chris indicating how it expects the water to
      each home to be shut off and notifying Chris that he would be held liable if it was
      not done in the proper manner.
   4. Pump House Painting: Scott will pressure wash the pump house and we will
      try to form a painting party to repaint it in the near future. We are hoping that we
      can get some volunteers to help with the project. It will be painted with a white
      masonry paint and blue trim paint.
   5. Temporary Hold on Water and Electric Lines To The Docks: Because of the
      restrictions imposed by the building department for extending the water and
      electric lines to the docks, the project will become more costly and probably
      prohibitive (at least for this season) since we have the major road project in the
   works. As a result, this project has been place on hold and will be discussed at a
   later date. As a temporary alternative, members who wish to wash their boats,
   can use the fresh water spigots located near the davit and near the floating dock.
   Simply, connect your own hose to these and run it out to your boat.
6. Christmas In July! Scott will check with Darlene and Jim Kolesar about a
   Christmas in July event. Details will be available later.
7. Posting Of The Newsletter And Minutes: It was suggested that the minutes of
   the trustees meeting also be posted on the bulletin board and website in the same
   manner that the Baywinds Newsletter is posted.
                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER


                    (JULY 2004 – SEPTEMBER 2004)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April, 2004. As always, if there are any questions, fell free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.

1.Welcome to New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to offer a hearty
welcome to our new residents Todd and Kristin Zimmerman and Scott and Shari Aliff.
They purchased Joe Hoffman‘s summer place. We wish you a grand time at Baywinds
and welcome you into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting held on May 22, 2004, Richard Kmetz
declined to run for another term as trustee. Jeff Schmitz volunteered to serve on the
board. By acclamation, Jeff Schmitz and Bob Bresky were elected to the board for a two
year term. At the executive session held at the conclusion of the meeting, I agreed to stay
on as Treasurer, Scott agreed to remain as President and Doris Potter agreed to stay on as
Secretary.

3. Gratitude and Much Appreciation To Richard Kmetz: Many members expressed
their gratitude and appreciation for all of the time and hard work Richard has put in for
the benefit of all Baywinds residents. He has much knowledge of the history of the park
and has been a priceless asset. He has single handedly watched over many major projects
in the park to make sure that they came to a successful conclusion. Fortunately for us, he
has agreed to continue to help in anyway that he can, but prefers to let some ―new talent‖
serve on the board. In recognition of all of Richard‘s hard work over many years, the
members present at the annual meeting voted Richard ―Trustee Emeritus”.

4.Thank You: Thank you to Denny Fitzpatrick and Richard Kmetz for painting the
bottoms of the docks before they went back into the water. Also, thank you to Darlene
and Jim Kolesar for continuing to chair our social events. They could always use some
help, so if you are so inclined, please see Darlene and Jim to offer your talents. Darlene
has asked that you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure that you
RSVP for all the social events. It is very difficult for Darlene to know how many to
plan for unless she had an accurate count of those who will be attending. You can RSVP
to Jim and Darlene by calling 216 – 362 – 6123 or by e-mail at jimpp22171@aol.com
Thank you for being considerate.

5. More Thank Yous: The annual Park Clean Up was held at 1 PM on Saturday May 22
after the annual meeting. It was refreshing to see such a large turn out and to see just
how much work can be accomplished in such a short period of time by all of us working
together. Thank you to all who participated. Everyone owns a piece of this park and
shares some responsibility in maintaining it. Thank you to John and Judy Keiser for
donating the many flats of flowers that were planted to beautify the common areas.
6.We Passed With Flying Colors: We received our annual inspection report from the
Health Department of Ottowa County. They found absolutely no violations in the Marina
or Park! Our park continues to be outstanding in the way that it is maintained and
managed!

7. Baywinds Sign: Our sign at the entrance to the park off Bayshore Road is located
directly on the property line. The surrounding landscaping encroaches on the new
owners property west of the sign. They have informed us that they may want to erect a
fence along the property line. That being the case, it may be necessary for us to move our
sign in the near future. Please be aware, that Baywinds isn‘t moving – just the sign. ()

8. Annual Street Sale: Due to lack of interest this year, the annual yard sale will not be
held. This gives you an extra year to gather your treasures together. We will try again
next year.

9. Lot #25 Parking : Everyone is reminded that lot number 25 is not be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat on your property.

10. Parking Of Cars And Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park
cars or golf carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to
the launch ramp. If you park your car at the marina, please park it adjacent to and near
the pump house. Golf carts should be parked in the Grassy area near lot #23 (John
Meyer). Because of emergency access needs, please DO NOT PARK GOLF CARTS
ON THE JETTY!!!! It is tempting to want to park a golf cart near your boat dock, but
the Jetty must be kept free and clear. Please abide by this request.

11. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywnds.info. And the password to get into
the site is “letmein”. Please keep the password confidential so that we can keep the
sight as secure as reasonably possible. Jim has asked that I let you know that he can post
pictures on the website or other items of interest. You can send the pictures to him by e-
mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or ―snail‖ mail him an actual photo and he will scan it and
place it on the website. Jim‘s home address will be found on our Bawyinds unit owners
listing. Since this newsletter will be posted on the website for the ―whole world to see,‖ I
don‘t want to publish Jim‘s home address in this newsletter. He suggested that those
people that have homes for sale () might want to take advantage of this. You will
always find a copy of the current newsletter posted at the sight, plus other pertinent
information that you might wish to know about Baywinds.

12. Donation To Lakeside Fire Department: In their executive session, the board
voted to again send a $20.00 donation to the Lakeside Fire Department.
13. Road Project: Actually after only a short discussion at the annual meeting on May
22, 2004, the membership came to the conclusion that we really needed to do something
with our road ASAP. The board has already obtained estimates for asphalt as well as
chip and seal. After some discussion, it was determined that the membership was more
in favor of Chip and Seal over Asphalt. The cost to Chip and Seal the road from
Bayshore Road all the way to the Marina including the turn-around area was
approximately $10,000 . The cost of asphalt was a little more than double that. The
board was directed to look into this further and make arrangements for this to be done as
soon as possible. We will use a portion of our ―reserve account‖ to defray the cost of the
road project for all unit owners. In addition, each owner will have the opportunity to
have their driveway chip and sealed at the same time that the road is being paved. Cost
to individual owners for their driveways will be in the neighborhood of $.75 to $1.25 per
square foot of driveway paved. To find out your approximate cost, simply measure the
length and width of your driveway in feet, and multiply these two numbers together.
This will give you the square footage of your driveway. Next multiply that number by
$1.00. The result will be the approximate cost to pave your driveway. The more people
who decide to pave their drives, the lower the price per square foot. The board will be in
touch with everyone- perhaps by calling a special meeting- as soon as all the details are
worked out.

         BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                          (April 2004 – June 2004)
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in December, 2003. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.

1.Condolences to Ron & Doris Potter: It is with much sadness that we must report that
some members of our Baywinds family have lost loved ones since the last newsletter.
Doris Potter‘s father passed way on January 7, 2004. All of us at Baywinds extend our
heartfelt sympathies to Doris & Ron and to their families.

2.Winter Damage: The poles that secure the floating dock were damaged this winter.
One of the brackets anchoring the poles snapped and another pole was bent. Scott was
able to see for himself what caused this and what role the ice played in it. He met with
Sam from LakeCraft Corporation to devise a repair and solution so that this doesn‘t
happen again. The damage will be repaired ASAP.

3.Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS , you are
reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot
is only to be used for over flow parking of guest cars and the occasional TEMPORARY
parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend.) You also may NOT store trailers on your
own lot.

4.Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of May 22, 2004 for our annual meeting to
be held at the Danbury Township Hall. More details will be sent to you as the date
approaches. At this meeting, you will be asked to elect two trustees. The terms of
Richard Kmetz and Bob Bresky will come to an end. If you would be interested in
serving as a trustee for a two year term, please contact one of the current trustees so that
your name can be placed on the ballot.

5.Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held in March 2004.

I‘m sure all of you are getting spring fever and can‘t wait for all the snow, cold and ice to
disappear for good. It will be great to see all of you again and get started on another fun
summer at Baywinds. Until then, take care.




.
                             (January 2004 – March 2004)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in October.
As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.


   1. All ready for Winter: The new fence and sprinkler system are all installed and
      the sprinkler system has been winterized. Electric and water lines have been
      installed to the edge of the shore and hopefully, the project to extend electric and
      water to the docks will be completed next year. All the dead and diseased trees
      have been removed and the stumps ground. Next year, plans are to put a flower
      garden along the new fence. This Fall, Scott was able to purchase some
      shrubbery at Lowes for 75% off. He bought several large arborvitaes and several
      grasses. They have already been planted along the new fence and should give us
      a head start in the Spring.
   2. Trustees Meeting: At the trustees meeting held on October 18, 2003 the
      proposed budget for 2004 was approved. Total Income expected is $24, 120 and
      total budgeted is $24, 120. Quarterly assessments will remain the same for 2004
      at $256.60 per quarter.
   3. Great Job “Cutting Edge”: The trustees discussed and approved giving a bonus
      of $100 to our lawn maintenance company for the special care and good work
      they did for us this past summer. The bonus will be mailed in a thank you card
      around the Holiday season.
   4. Did you know?: For those of you without weekly trash pick up, it is possible to
      buy prepaid trash bags at Mutach‘s Market in Marblehead, and also at IGA. The
      cost of the bags are about $1.50 each and will be picked up by BFI trash service
      as they come down our street to pick up trash for regular customers. A note to all
      who do leave trash for pick up – please put the trash bags in GARBAGE CANS.
      Animals have been getting into some of the unattended bags and garbage has been
      blown all over the park.
   5. Project for next year: The trustees are thinking about possibly moving the
      current sink and commode in the pump house to one of the shower stalls that we
      currently use for storage of picnic tables. That would free up a larger area for
      storage where we currently have the toilet and sink. The estimated cost of this
      project would be about $300 - $400.
   6. Next Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled meeting of the trustees will be held
      in March 2004. As always, we will be thinking ahead to the Spring Annual
      Meeting and would like to encourage anyone who would like to run for a position
      on the board to submit their name to any of the trustees so that your name can be
      included on the ballot.

Finally, your trustees would like to wish you all a Wonderful and Blessed Holiday
Season and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year! Stay warm during the winter and
think thoughts of Spring! See you all again next year!
                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                        OCTOBER 2003 – DECEMBER 2003

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in June. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330- 633- 8858.

   1. Baywinds Website: Jim Luteran has used his skills to create a website for us.
      We have been posting the trustees meeting minutes and the quarterly newsletter
      on the website for your information. The existence of the website was mentioned
      in a previous newsletter. This is just a reminder that it can be found at
      www.baywinds.info and the password is “letmein” . Please keep the password
      confidential to keep the website as secure as possible.
   2. Boats Out of the Marina: Please try to have your boat out of the marina by
      October 19th so that the docks can be removed. If you need to leave your boat in
      longer and your dock is on the jetty side, please move it to any of the empty docks
      on the main floater which will not be coming out of the water. If there are any
      questions, please call Scott.
   3. Tree Planting: Hopefully by the time this newsletter gets in your hands, we will
      have planted another tree in the park as a living memorial to Barb Schmitz‘s
      mother who passed away earlier this summer. We would like to develop a
      landscaping plan for future plantings and would like a committee to develop a
      master plan. Please contact your trustees if you would be willing to do this.
   4. Ramp: We had the black top approach to the ramp sealed for the winter. It was
      done at a cost of $75 by a company who just happened to be doing work at
      Commadore Bay. Their estimate was less expensive than what we could have
      done it ourselves.
   5. Tree Removal: By now you should have noticed that several trees were removed
      from the park and others were trimmed. There was significant damage from the
      barrage of storms this summer making it necessary to have some trees trimmed of
      dead branches and others totally taken down because they were either dead or
      rotting in the middle posing a danger to anyone near them. Two trees were
      removed near Lonsinger‘s and the willow tree by the ramp was removed as well.
      Total cost of the service was about $1400 including stump grinding.
   6. Hand Rails: Lake Craft installed handrails on the docks along the jetty. Eight
      handrails were installed at a cost of $175 each. This hopefully will make it safer
      for those with docks along the Jetty and help prevent anyone from slipping and
      falling.
   7. Crock Replacement: The trustees decided to put on hold the project of replacing
      the crocks and water lines on lots 1,2 and 3 this year. We will postpone this until
      next year. Jack‘s excavating will be doing the work since he is the most familiar
      with our water lines. The estimated cost is about $500 - $600 per crock.
      Homeowners on those lots will share a small cost of part of the project for the
      water line connection to their unit.
8. Heat Tape: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave your water on during the
    winter months, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
    ARE WRAPPED WITH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or
    so. If your heat tape is that old, you may want to have it checked out to make
    sure that it is in working order.
9. Marina/Commons Area Improvements: On Saturday August 23rd, a group of
    volunteers got together and installed a split rail fence along the east property line.
    Richard Kmetz had removed the old snow fencing, cleared up all brush and had
    the site ready for construction of the fence. While we had the trencher, we also
    trenched for electrical lines and for water lines. The fence went up fast, and the
    rest of the day was spent laying water lines for an irrigation/sprinkler system and
    electric and water lines to carry electricity and fresh water to the docks. We will
    use one of our old bladder tanks and well pump to pump water out of the marina
    for the sprinkler system. Fresh water will be provided to the docks along with
    electricity. We will finish this project next year by alternating fresh water and
    electrical connections to every other dock. Time only allowed for installation of
    the electric lines and water lines to shore this year. Many thanks to all who
    helped with this project: Richard and Carole Kmetz, Scott and Denny, Fred
    Luzius , Mark Gorrell and me (grin).
10. Thank You!!!!!!!! Many people have taken it upon themselves to do little jobs in
    the park that benefit us all. Thank you so much for all of you that have done so. I
    will attempt to list a few people and their contributions that I know of. Please
    forgive me if you did something in the park that benefits us all and I missed you.
    In any event, THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED MAKE BAYWIDS
    A NICE PLACE TO WEEKEND, VACATION OR LIVE. A ―tip of the hat‖
    goes to :Darlene and Jim Kolesar and Emma Luzius for their hard work on
    socials and keeping our gambling skills honed with CLR; John and Judy
    Kaieser for donating flowers to beautify the park again this year; Jim and
    Darlene, Craig and Kathy Good, Tim Feller, Scott and Denny for pulling
    weeds in the marina. Richard Kmetz and Scott Pritchard for the many hours
    expended in dealing with all the business of Baywinds and for their handy work in
    all the ―projects‖ that we have taken on this year. Coming from the ―treasurer‖
    these guys saved us a lot of money by encouraging ―do it yourself‖ projects to
    make the park a nicer place.
                        Minutes of Baywinds Trustees Meeting
                           Saturday July 26, 2003 9 A.M.


Present at the meeting: Scott Pritchard, Richard Kmetz, John Meyer, Bob Bresky
Unable to attend: Ron and Doris Potter

In this meeting, the board discussed and/or approved the following:

   1. Annual donation to the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Department of $20.00
   2. We have started a plan to plant memorial trees in the park in memory of loved
      ones who have passed on. We have planted a tree in memory of Doris Potter‘s
      mother, and will be planting another tree in memory of Barb Schmitz‘s mother.
      We felt that it would be wise to develop a landscaping plan for the park indicating
      where future trees should be planted as well as the type of trees. Some thoughts
      mentioned were lining the drive with trees as we come into the park from
      Bayshore Rd. We would like to see a ―grounds committee‖ established to draw
      up a master plan than can be followed in the future. We are looking for
      volunteers who would do this for the park.
   3. There was significant tree damage with the barrage of storms that passed through
      the park in the last several weeks. It is necessary to have some limbs trimmed out
      of some trees and to have some trees removed altogether. Estimates were
      obtained for the following work: remove two willows by Lonsingers – there is
      only one living section on the trees. Most of both trees are dead and pose a
      danger at the entrance to the park. To remove both trees is $700. The Hickory
      tree by Ralph Meyers needs to have some dead wood at the top removed. $100
      The Mulberry tree next to the pump house is dead and needs to be removed. $25.
      The Willow tree next to the ramp is rotted in the middle and the only part of the
      tree that is still living is the outside part. We have spent a lot of money on this tree
      in the past and spending more in the future is not justified. Since the tree is in a
      weakened state, the board decided to have it removed as well to prevent damage
      to the new ramp if it should be blown down. Cost for this tree is $350. We would
      have and additional charge of $50 per stump to have them ground. The board
      decided to have three stumps ground at a cost of $150. Total cost will be about
      $1400. We will proceed with the tree removal as soon as possible.
   4. We planned to pull weeds along the Jetty on Sunday July 27th and were going to
      ask for volunteers to do this. However, Darlene and Jim Kolesar took it upon
      themselves to complete this task on Saturday for us. Thank you to Darlene and
      Jim and to anyone who may have helped them.
   5. The need to seal the blacktop at the top of the ramp was discussed. The board
      approved this item and planned on purchasing about 10 gallons of sealer and the
      tools necessary to apply the sealer. However, Commodore Bay was having some
      sealing work done as the trustees meeting was taking place. We discovered this,
      and asked for an estimate. The estimate came in at only $75. The company was
       given approval by board members and sealed it that same morning. They did a
       fine job.
   6. A review of the work done by Lake Craft in constructing the new hand-rails for
       the docks received a thumbs up. Eight hand-rails were installed at a cost of $175
       each.
   7. Richard Kmetz was thanked for his work in clearing the old snow fence from the
       east side of our property and getting rid of brush and debris. Richard took it upon
       himself to do this for us in preparation for installation of the new split rail fence
       along the east property line. The new fence will run from the end of the pump
       house to the marina. A total length of 110 feet. Total estimated cost will be $350
       for the materials plus rental of a trencher to do the work. At the time of the fence
       installation, we will run a water line and electric line from the marina to the pump
       house. We will use one of the old bladder tanks and the water pump from the old
       well to pump water from the marina and use it to water the grass and trees in the
       common area at the marina. It is estimated that we will need about 4 or 5
       sprinkler heads to do this. Again, volunteers will be asked to give up some time
       for this project.
   8. We need to replace the line on the flagpole and maybe the light at the top. The
       light apparently was blown away in one of the storms. Richard said he thought
       that he had some line. He will just need some help taking the flagpole down and
       putting it back up again after the line is replaced.
   9. Since the docks were painted this spring, we need to stencil on the numbers for
       each dock again. Richard has stencils at home and will bring them to Baywinds
       to use on the docks.
   10. The trustees decided to put on hold the project of replacing the crocks and water
       lines on lots 1,2 and 3 this year. We will postpone this until next year. Jack‘s
       Excavating will be doing the work, since he is most familiar with our water lines.
       Estimated cost was about $500 - $600 per crock. Homeowners on those lots will
       share a small cost of part of the project for the water line connection to their unit.
   11. The next trustee meeting will be held in October.


The meeting was adjourned at 10:20 A.M.


       Respectfully submitted,

                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                            (JULY – SEPTEMBER 2003)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in April. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858.


   1. Yearly Meeting: The yearly meeting was held at the Danbury Township Hall on
      Saturday May 17th at 10:00 am. At this meeting, Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and
      John Meyer were reelected as trustees by acclamation.

   2. Lawn Service: Majestic Landscaping which was cutting our grass, split their
      partnership and one of the partners is now cutting our grass. The new name of
      the company is The Cutting Edge. If you are having any particular problems,
      contact the company or Northcoast Property Management Co.

   3. New e – mail Address: Northcoast Property Management Co. is changing their
      e-mail address. The new address is : admin@ncpmgt.com Their office is located
      at 129 Madison Street, 1B Port Clinton, Ohio 43452 Mailing address is P.O.
      Box 235 Port Clinton, Ohio 43452 Office phone number is 419 – 734- 6139 or
      Toll Free 877 – 734 – 6139 Fax number is 419 – 734 – 1114 They also have an
      after hours EMERGENCY number : 1 – 800 – 206 – 0328

   4. Lot 25 Trailer Parking: Please be aware that lot 25 is not to be used for summer
      parking of boat trailers. It is only to be used for the temporary parking of trailers
      (such as over the weekend) or guest cars. Many places in the area can provide
      you with a place to store your trailer over the summer for a nominal fee.

   5. Annual Yard Sale: Please mark your calendars for Saturday, July 19, 2003.
      This is the date of our annual yard sale. Start collecting your treasures now!

   6. Upcoming Projects: Lakecraft Corporation has been contacted to fabricate hand
      rails for our docks. They are very slippery especially when the docks are wet.
      Since we have been sited in the past for not having them, the Board thought it
      would be prudent to address this issue as soon as possible. They will be installed
      as soon as they have been fabricated. We will also continue with our on-going
      scheduled crock replacement. We will try to replace three of them this summer.
      The old snow fence on the East side of the property by the pump house needs to
      be removed and replaced with a split rail fence. However, there is a good deal of
      poison ivy in the area and that needs too be removed/killed before any work can
      be done there. And finally, the pump house needs to be repainted. If you could
      help with any of these projects, it would greatly be appreciated. Please see one of
      the trustees to let them know that you would be willing to help.
7. Five Mile Per Hour Speed Limit: Please observe the 5mph speed limit as you
   drive down our road. It is for the safety of all residents and guests. Also, please
   advise your guests of the speed limit in the park.

8. Park Clean Up: Thank you to all of the folks that helped with the park clean up
   Saturday afternoon May 17th. We were able to get a lot of work accomplished in
   a very short period of time. It would not have been possible without all the help
   we received.

9. Baywinds Roster: A new Baywinds owner roster should be enclosed with your
   quarterly statement in June. The one that you received with your annual meeting
   packet had some incorrect phone numbers and addresses. Corrections were made
   at the annual meeting. Mattie Wallace from Northcoast Property Management
   Company will make the corrections and enclose the new roster with the June
   quarterly statements. Please destroy the old roster.

10. Thank You: A big thank you to Darlene and Jim Kolesar for hosting the burger
    and hot dog picnic in the park on Saturday May 17th. The food and fellowship
    were great. A lot of work goes into planning and putting these affairs together.
    We really appreciate all that Jim and Darlene do for us.
                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                             (January 2003 – March 2003)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in October.
As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858 (New Phone Number).


   1. Andy Cifranic: It is with much sadness that we must report the passing of Andy
      Cifranic on Saturday November 16, 2002. Andy died of complications from
      throat cancer at the Cleveland Clinic two days before his 72nd birthday. Andy was
      quite an accomplished photojournalist working for The Cleveland Plain Dealer
      for many years. He won numerous awards for his work. The Plain Dealer ran a
      very nice article about Andy in the paper on November 19th. I printed it from
      their web site and have copies if anyone would like one. We will certainly miss
      Andy. All of us at Baywinds extend our deepest sympathies to the family.

   2. Key Bank Account Closed: We have closed our account with the Key Bank and
      moved our checking account to The National Bank of Oak Harbor. It seems Key
      Bank kept assessing us for service charges that continued to get out of hand. In
      August of this year, we wrote just eight checks and paid thirteen dollars in service
      charges. These charges were adding up to become a significant amount and were
      not offset by any advantages or services that Key Bank was providing. The
      National Bank of Oak Harbor in an effort to obtain our business, agreed to cut in
      half the initial cost of $104 to set up a new account with them. Their charge of
      $52 included our first batch of checks, deposit slips and endorsement stamp. We
      should save a significant amount in service charges paid my making this move.
      We still have a Money Market Account with First Federal Savings where we
      deposit our ―reserves‖ money.

   3.    2003 Budget Approved: The trustees at their meeting on Saturday October 12,
        2002 approved the 2003 budget with no new increases in assessments.

   4. Water Line Replacement: The board approved replacing the old water lines that
      run behind lots 1,2 and 3 with a new line that will run in front of these properties.
      New crocks will also be installed. The old lines run too close to the surface. The
      work was to have already been done by Matt Molnar, however, because of a snag
      it is now postponed until the spring.

   5. Bladder Tanks Sold: Two of the three bladder tanks that we had in the pump
      house were sold for $75 each. We kept one of the tanks in case we ever decide to
      irrigate the lawn in the commons area with bay water from the marina.
                         BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                               (October 2002 – December 2002)



     Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in June. As
     always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
     reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 753-1785. (This phone number
     will be changed at the end of October – we are moving  )


        1. Baywinds Website: Jim Luteran has used his skills to create a website for us:
           www.baywinds.info . Currently posted on the website are the Revised Code of
           Regulations, the current newsletter, photos of the marina work that we had done
           this past spring and a link to send e-mail to the trustees via Jim. Some individuals
           have expressed an interest in having financial information posted here and
           eventually a question and answer forum. After talking with Jim Luteran, all these
           things are possible but will take time to set up. One factor that we need to
           address is security. Jim has recently created a secured section on the website that
           is accessible by password only. This will prevent just anyone from accessing
           information that only Baywinds residents should have. To enter the secured
           areas, please use the password “letmein”. Please keep the password confidential
           to keep our website as secure as possible.
        2. Welcome: Welcome to the new folks on the block! A friendly welcome is
           extended to Craig and Kathy Good, the new owners of unit number ten. We all
           hope your experience at Baywinds is a happy one. Please stop by and introduce
           yourself to them when you get the time and make them feel welcome.
        3. A Request from Nancy Lonsinger: When parking trailers/boats etc. on the
           over flow lot by the fence, please leave enough room so that Nancy can more
           easily tend to the plantings and flowers in that area. Nancy has taken it upon
           herself to keep things watered for us near the fence. Many thanks Nancy for
           doing this!
        4. This and That : The following are some items discussed at the trustees meeting
           held on July 27, 2002.
               a. We purchased a total of four collapsible picnic tables for use at our social
                   events. They were used for the first time at our ice cream social on
                   August 17th. The tables are stored in the pump house and can be used by
                   any association member. Please see Scott or any of the trustees for a key.
                   Just be sure to return the tables and lock them back up when you are
                   finished using them.
               b. Bids were obtained to replace water lines and crocks on lots 1 and 3 while
                   lot 2 needs only a replacement crock. The association will pay the cost of
                   this work, except the individual homeowner will be responsible for the
                   connection of the line from the crock to their unit at an approximate cost
1.                 of $250.
                           Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                             (July2002 – September 2002)


Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in April. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached via e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-753-1785.


   1. Memorial Day Weekend Activties: Saturday May 25, 2002 was devoted to the
      annual meeting held at the Danbury Township Hall at 10 a.m. Trustees reelected
      for another two year term were Richard Kmetz and Bob Bresky. After the
      meeting, the trustees met to elect officers. Officers will remain the same as last
      year. Scott Pritchard – President, Richard Kmetz – Vice President, Bob Bresky –
      Treasurer, Ron Potter and John Meyer continue as trustees and Doris Potter will
      continue as Secretary. Copies of the By Laws and the revised Rules and
      Regulations for Baywinds were printed by Jim Kolesar at no cost to us. These
      were distributed at the annual meeting. If you didn‘t get your copy, please see
      Scott to get one. Remember to destroy any old copies that you may have because
      changes have been made. At the meeting some discussion was taken as to what to
      do with the road. There was no clear consensus as to what residents would like to
      do. The board will continue to discuss this at a later date. To give you some idea
      as to cost – Mat Molenar (who did our marina) gave us an estimate for blacktop
      from Bayshore Rd. to the marina, including grading the road to correct drainage
      problems and also lowering the manholes for a cost of $21,000. Bergman gave
      us an estimate of $26,975 for black top but didn‘t address the drainage problems
      or lowering of the manholes. The Chip and Seal estimate from Bergman was
      $12,000 - $13,000. Bergman also gave residents the option of having their
      driveway blacktopped at a cost of $1.75 per square foot—this would have to be
      done at the same time as the road. There was also a request by Jeff Schmitz that
      the board consider planting some trees in the commons area. The picnic
      scheduled for Saturday evening was rained out and postponed until Sunday
      evening. It was a beautiful day and the picnic was well attended. We had nearly
      60 people. All seemed to have a nice time. Thanks to Darlene and Jim Kolesar
      for organizing the picnic and also to all who helped them.

   2. Final Cost Of The Marina: The final cost of the marina project was $34,346.28.
      Average depth in the marina is now about seven feet, and all rocks have been
      removed. The board is considering putting a small pad of concrete at the top of
      the marina to finish it off and perhaps provide better traction for anyone with
      front wheel drive vehicles as they attempt to pull out of the ramp. This we will do
      ourselves and will need some volunteers to help with the project. Please set aside
      a few hours if you can to help us. Let one of the trustees know if you can help.
      Since the marina project came in under budget (we budgeted $36,600 and the
      final cost was $34,346.28), the trustees are considering some of the following
    improvements to the marina with the balance of the money—running electric and
    water to the docks, installing a marker light at the entrance of the marina for those
    who find themselves boating at night and provide more lighting in the commons
    area. If you have any comments regarding these ideas, please let your trustees
    know.

2. Guidelines For Using The Ramp: The ramp was designed for launching small
   boats and jet skis only. Be careful in using it. The concrete goes into the water
   about ten feet. It is suggested that you STAY AWAY from the davit side of the
   ramp as much as possible, because there is about a 20 inch drop off on that side.
   You could easily get into trouble. – BE CAREFUL. Richard Kmetz said he will
   try to mark the end of the concrete with a flag so that you will know where the
   ramp ends.

3. Pump House Keys: Keys to the pump house restrooms are available to anyone
   who wants them. See Scott if you would like a key. I believe that there is a key
   hanging in the general area of the restroom door as well.

4. Picnic Table No Longer On The Jetty: The picnic table that was out on the
   Jetty has been moved back to the commons area. Richard Kmetz placed a park
   bench out on the jetty for your enjoyment. Please leave all picnic tables in the
   common area.

5. Unofficial Discussion: There was an ―unofficial‖ discussion at the association
   picnic on Sunday May 26th, regarding the need for more picnic tables for our
   social events. It is very labor intensive to borrow and round up tables from
   residents throughout the park –then return them after the event. It was suggested
   that we buy about four more picnic tables to be used in the commons area for our
   social events and also to buy a couple gas grills. As it stands now, every time
   Darlene has a social event that requires cooking food, they must use their own gas
   grill plus borrow others. If you have any thoughts on this either way, please let
   your trustees know what is on your mind.

6. Speed In The Park: PLEASE observe the 5mph speed limit in the park and ask
   your guests to do so as well. This includes all vehicles- including golf carts,
   mopeds and scooters. This was a concern discussed at the annual meeting. There
   are small children playing in yards and it would be very easy for them to stray
   into the street. Please be careful and keep the speed down. This will also cut
   down on the amount of dust created along the road.

7. The Phantom Has Struck Again! Last year, someone ‗walked off‘ with our
   speed limit signs (in some cases post and all!). This year the phantom has struck
   again-- this time taking the ―visitor parking‖ signs. Does anyone have a clue?? If
   so, please turn the culprits in to the Baywinds Police!
                              Bay Winds Trustees Meeting
                                  Executive Session
                                   August 8, 2009



Present: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky, Carole Kmetz, Ron Potter
Absent: Rosemary Trimmer

The board met today with Tony Kington of Chester, Willcox and Saxbe – a large
Columbus law firm to discuss legal strategies in regards to issues that we have had with
Bay Winds Development Company, Len Partin, John Caputo, Sharon and Felix Polonco
and John Coppeler.

The minutes of this meeting will not be posted on the website. The board felt that since
the matter has not been settled, it would not be prudent to publish what was discussed in
the executive session. If anyone would like to read the minutes of this meeting, they are
available to read by seeing Scott Pritchard or Bob Bresky.

May 10, 2009 9:20 am
Minutes of unofficial informal meeting to discuss legal options regarding Baywinds
Development Corporation.

Present: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Bill Feller, Jim Kolesar
Invited but did not attend – Jeff Schmitz

1. We discussed the issue of obtaining all of our records from North Coast Property
Mangement for safe keeping in the event that we decide to litigate. Since John Caputto
has an interest in Northcoast Property Management, we were thinking that perhaps
records might just ―disappear‖ etc. After discussion by those present, we decided that
this might not be a good idea and decided against it.

2. Bill Feller suggested that if and when the property is transferred to Baywinds Unit
Owners Association, that we get a Warranty Deed to the property with full insurance. He
tells us that a ―quit claim deed‖ is inadequate. It will cost us more, but is well worth the
investment.

3. Bill Feller suggested that we ―notch out‖ only the 10 feet of property needed by the
Polonco‘s to remove the encroachment on our property and make it an easement with the
stipulation that if at any time in the future, they remove the porch or it is destroyed, it
cannot be rebuilt and the easement would become null and void.
4. We discussed the submerged land lease and if it is in the name of Baywinds Unit
Owners Association or if it still might be in the name of Baywinds Development
Corporation. Bob agreed to call ODNR on Monday May 11, 2009 and inquire about our
lease and what name is on the lease.
5. We all agreed that it is imperative that we have an attorney present at the annual
meeting. Scott has contacted an attorney in the area and is waiting for a call back. In the
event that we decide to litigate, we may want to retain an attorney from out of the area so
that we are certain that there are no ties with Baywinds Development Corporation,
Hartung Title and Flynn , Py, & Kruse.

6. After reviewing several documents that Scott presented, we feel that we have a
legitimate case -- since we were sold land and dockage -- but do not have access to either.
Our Warranty Deeds stipulate that we must have access to our property and dock.

7. More discussion was given to item #3 above. Bill suggested that we offer the
Poloncos two options:
   1. Notch out the property needed around the porch. That way, the Poloncos would
own it. We would sign off on it with the Planning Commission. The Poloncos would pay
all fees necessary.
   2. We will give an easement to end the encroachment with the stipulation that in the
future, if the porch is either removed or perhaps destroyed by fire etc., it cannot be rebuilt
and the easement would become null and void.

The other options that were offered to the Poloncos by the Board of Trustees at the March
21, 2009 Trustees Meeting are still on the table and are viable:

 1. Purchase the 10 feet of property that they are requesting to the fence line at fair market
value.
or
 2. Give up their dock in exchange for this property.
or
 3. Agree to pay the full amount of quarterly assessments (instead of half) in perpetuity.
This would be passed on to any future owners of the property should it be sold. If the
assessments were not paid, the owners of the property would lose their right to use the
dock and it would revert to Baywinds Association. The payment of the full assessment
would not give them a vote in any matters of the association and they would still be
responsible for 1/24th of the cost of any improvements to the marina.

8. Scott also stated, that instead of us notching out the property, that Len Partin could
conceivably notch it out, and then deed the remainder of the land to Baywinds
Homeowners Association.
There being no further items to discuss regarding this issue, the meeting concluded at
10:45 am.

Minutes of this meeting were recorded and submitted by Robert Bresky – Baywinds
Treasurer/Trustee.
                                 BAY WINDS
                              TRUSTEES MEETING
                                MARCH 21, 2009

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary

Trimmer and Secretary, Doris Potter

Guests: Steve Bauman, Mark Gorrell, Mike Trimmer, and Homeowners Sharon

and Felix Polanco

Scott called the meeting to order at 10 AM.

The first order of business was the home facing Bay Shore Drive owned by Mr. And

Mrs. Polanco.

       1. The Polanco’s would like 10 feet by 248 feet of our Right of Way (R.O.W.)

       2. Scott found out that our street could never be a dedicated road because of

the width.

       8. In researching the R.O.W., and the possibility of selling a piece of the
           R.O.W., Scott found that Hartung Title and Len Parton never got the
           green spaces properly titled to Bay Winds
       9.
       10. Hartung must get this problem solved and the title presented to Bay
           Winds.
       11. The Polanco’s came to the meeting to introduce themselves and to inquire
           what rights and restrictions there are to the remodel their home on the
           corner of Bay Shore and the Bay Winds entrance drive. They need a
           section of our R.O.W. in order to do the remodeling work. As stated
           preciously, they need 10 feet by 248 feet.
       12. The Polanco’s have several options to consider;
               A. They may opt to pay the full Bay Winds assessment in exchange
                  for our granting them the land strip they need and have a dock.
                  This would pass on to future owners in perpetuity. If they should
                  stop paying the quarterly assessment for any reason, they would
                  relinquish their rights to use the dock until all payments were
                  made in full.
              B. They may opt to purchase the land at fair market value but still

              must pay their association assessments at the rate of one half of

              whatever the assessment is. In the event that they stop paying their

              quarterly assessment, they relinquish their right to use the dock until

              all payments have been made in full

We continued our usual meeting with a discussion of the water issue.

      1. January 2009 water bill was for water usage of 145,000 gallons.

      5. The water meter seems to be working per the water department.


      6.    It was decided to have the meter tested for $25.00 and then have it
           replaced.

      7.
      4. The PUCO can be approached with the problem but there is a letter on

      file that says that several owners let their faucets trickle during the very cold

      weather.

      10. Steve Bauman asked if there might be a way to keep a record of the water
          usage weekly or whatever. Scott said yes.


      11. Gravel is needed on the jetty. It was suggested that a smaller size be used
          as it is easier on the feet.


      12. Todd Zimmerman would like the park to have a wireless internet
          connection. He has proposed installing an antenna that would service all
          those in Baywinds who are interested. Those signing up will share in the
          expenses.
      13. Allied Waste will be contracted to begin trash removal at the Pavilion
          starting May 1, 2009. We will need to purchase two or three large trash
          cans with attached lids.
      14. Matt Minto will be contracted again for yard maintenance
Bob Bresky gave a Financial Report as of February 28, 2009 as follows:

                              ANNUAL BUDGET MEETING
                                  OCTOBER 18, 2008

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary Trimmer
and Secretary, Doris Potter
Guests: Richard Kmetz, Frank Modliszewski, Jeff Schmitz and Mike Trimmer
Purpose: To adopt the 2009 Budget
Scott called the meeting to order at 9 AM.


Bob made the following observations relative to our 2008 budget:
       3. An increase in the cost of lawn service as we hired a different landscaper.
       4. We anticipated an increase in the Submerged Land Lease, however, the fee
           remained the same.


Bob then discussed the spreadsheet he developed comparing the expenses for 2006, 2007
and projected expenses for 2008 against the proposed budget for 2009. With some
―tweaking,‖ Bob was able to keep the proposed 2009 annual budget the same as 2008:
$25,568.00. A new item was added to the budget for 2009 – Trash Service for the
Pavilion -- May – Oct. at a cost of $150. We would also have a one time expense to
purchase 5 or 6 trash receptacles. Darlene moved the acceptance of the 2009 budget.
Rosemary seconded, with everyone approving.


Bob then updated our current cash flow as of October 1, 2008:
       $ 8,691.13 Check Book balance
         6,812.39 Savings Account balance
         2,847.82 Certificate of Deposit balance
      $18,351.34 Total
The meeting was adjourned at 10 AM.

                                 TRUSTEES MEETING
                                  OCTOBER 18, 2008

Present: Bob Bresky, Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Rosemary Trimmer
and Secretary, Doris Potter
Guests: Richard Kmetz, Frank Modliszewski and Mike Trimmer
Scott called the meeting to order at 10 AM.
Scott made the following report:
       The crock at the home of Steve Cifranic was replaced, with the work being done
by Bruce Brockert. Richard Kmetz observed the entire operation, and took pictures of
the work for our files. Both Scott and Richard were very pleased with the work done by
Bruce Brockert.
       The main drain coming from the home on Bay Shore Road to the front of the
home of Bill Beach was blocked. Adkins Drain Service was called to snake the pipes and
at that time it was discovered that the clog was in the sewer line coming from the house
on Bayshore Rd. Rosemary brought up the fact that since the blocked drain was on
private property, the owner of that property should share in the cost of the repair. Scott
said that he would follow up on that.
       Owners need to be reminded that the sewers on their property are their
responsibility to repair and maintain.
       Scott brought to our attention that some rip rap that lined the marina had fallen
into the water. Bruce Brockert will use a backhoe to pull up any rocks that fell into the
water, then add more rip wrap to dress up the shore line. This will be done after the
docks have been moved to their winter position.
       There was much discussion about trash. Since our park events are well attended,
we have a lot of trash to contend with. It was agreed that we would contract for trash
removal for the Pavilion. Individual owners must still make their own arrangements for
trash removal.         Scott reported that Todd Zimmerman asked about getting internet
service for the park, and erecting an antenna that would allow all residents on the street to
use a wireless router to access the internet. That way, the Pavilion would have internet
and cable television capabilities, and those residents interested, could buy into the
program and pay for its‘ cost. It is still under consideration.
        Scott and Darlene commented on the ongoing saga of the navigational lights. We
could not use the colors the Coast Guard uses, so we chose blue and pink. Now we find
that Bay Winds will still be responsible if a boat crashes into the rocks when coming into
our marina. However, if ―landscape‖ lighting is used only on one side, we will have no
problems.
        Darlene reported that she is still looking into light fixtures to replace our current
street lighting. She will also find out what kind is acceptable, and the lumens required.
        Bob reported that Cathy and Tim Richardson expressed a concern about all the
weeds that have grown around our marina. It was suggested that the owners of the boats
docked on the jetty pull the weeds that grow in the rocks adjacent to their docks. Those
having boats docked on the main floater would pull the weeds that grow in the rocks
between the main floater and the davit, and possibly the jetty separating the marina from
the bay.
        Darlene suggested that the park rules be sent to each homeowner at the beginning
of each season. We also need to include a statement that dumping yard waste on or over
the jetty is not allowed.
        Richard Kmetz suggested that we discontinue having a biannual meeting to
discuss the budget next year because of the poor attendance and the expense involved. It
was expensive to print all the materials, proxy cards, mailings etc., and was inconvenient
and time consuming to make all the arrangements. We spent funds on postage so that
residents could return their proxy cards if they couldn‘t attend the meeting. Only three
proxy cards were received, -- but none were mailed – all were hand delivered to the
board. The board agreed that the expense etc. was not justified since hardly anyone
attended the meeting to discuss the budget for 2009. We will revert back to our old
policy of having the fourth quarter trustees meeting at Baywinds to approve the budget.
As always, trustees meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Anyone that has a
concern regarding the proposed budget can express those concerns at that time.
        Scott is looking into the possibility of having jet-ski dockage in addition to boat
dockage. It is still in the talking stage.
       Darlene reported that Kathy Good‘s mother passed away. Scott said he would
send a card and a contribution to the Alzheimer‘s organization that cared for Kathy‘s
mother, rather than having a tree planted in her memory. It was the family‘s wishes that a
donation to the Alzheimer‘s Organization be made in lieu of a memorial tree.
       It was agreed and approved that a Christmas bonus of $100 be given to Matt
Minto of Matt‘s Lawn Service for his excellent work in keeping the park looking sharp
this past summer.
       There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 11:35 AM.
Respectfully submitted,
Doris Potter




                     Minutes of Baywinds Trustees Meeting
                                 June 21, 2008

The meeting took place at Scott‘s home at Baywinds at 10 am. The
following people were present for the meeting: Scott Pritchard, Bob Bresky,
Darlene Kolesar, Ron Potter, Rosemary Trimmer and guests Bill Beach and
Jeff Schmitz.
At the beginning of the trustees meeting, it was noted for the record, that the
board had previously approved plans for the construction of a shed and
concrete pad on Bill Beach‘s property and the construction of a deck on
Steve Cifranic‘s property. All trustees had been consulted, but the approval
was done without a formal meeting.
The original agenda was temporarily set aside so that we could hear the
concerns that Bill Beach requested to bring before the board. After
expressing his concerns earlier to Bob, Bill was invited to the board meeting
to work toward a resolution.
Bill was concerned that Scott was bringing his truck cab down the road
periodically, and when he did so, would hit the overhead lines. This has been
going on for a number of years. Scott explained that he only did that when
he had items to unload at his house or items that he purchased for the
pavilion. Bill said that when he hit the lines, it made them fall even lower
and said that it had cost him $900 to have them raised. It was stated in the
discussion, that all lines must be at least 13‘ 6‖ above the roadway. If they
are not, then any trucks such as garbage trucks, cement trucks, delivery
trucks could also hit the overhead lines. Darlene said that she had been here
before when they yelled at the garbage truck driver to stop since his truck
was caught on lines. I questioned if what Bill was requesting was that we
(the board) tell Scott that he could not bring his truck down the road. If so,
we really could not do that because our ―Rules and Regulations‖ specifically
state that ―No action shall at any time be taken by Bay Winds or its Board
which in any manner would discriminate against any Member in favor of
another.‖ The only thing that we could do as a board would be to restrict
trucks by weight limit – but that would not be practical since service
vehicles etc. would be prohibited. A rather heated exchange/discussion took
place. Jeff got up to leave, but was told by Darlene to sit back down and be
a part of the solution instead of the problem. He remained for a short time,
then left. After Jeff left, the discussion calmed a bit and a solution to the
problem was proposed by Bill Beach. Bill suggested that Scott use his golf
cart any time that Scott needed to take items to his house or to the pavilion.
Bill offered to show Scott where the key is kept. Scott readily agreed that
this was an acceptable solution. The issue was resolved to the satisfaction of
all parties present by this gentleman‘s agreement. Bill told the board that he
had not asked Jeff to come to the meeting, and that Jeff was there as a result
of his own interests.

Another issue that the board wished to clarify with Bill Beach was how the
misunderstandings that apparently took place got started when Bill began
construction on his shed. We as a board had to sign off on the placement of
the shed, however, conflicting information apparently given by Scott Young
at the health department, added to the confusion. To clear the air, Scott
explained to Bill what transpired and why. All parties were satisfied that any
mistrust that had been present was now cleared.

Darlene made a request for Bill to reconsider his decision to not play Santa
again this year at our Christmas in July celebration. Bill always has done a
great job, and we would like to see that tradition continue. Bill explained
that he is soon starting a new job, and that he may have to work that day.
However, if he is not working, he agreed to be our Santa once again.

The board also discussed a short e-mail from Jeff Schmitz that was sent to
Scott and Bob that said: ―I want a copy of the State document you were
using last summer in quoting to keep golf carts off the pier.‖ There was
never any state document that the board quoted from. Our rules and
regulations stated that there should not be any parking of vehicles on the
jetty. The board added an addendum to clarify that rule in 2007 which stated
that ―no unattended vehicles shall be parked on the jetty. We assumed that
the issue had been resolved when we received an e-mail from Jeff that he
would no longer park his golf cart on the jetty and leave it there unattended
while out on his boat. The board searched all of the correspondence we had
on this issue with Jeff, and there never was any quotation of a state
document on our part. There was one e-mail from Jeff where he refers to a
―State Document‖, but at no time did the board or its members refer to a
―State Document‖.
The board discussed calculation of the amount to be assessed to John Meyer
for water usage that we had during a period of time that he had a water leak
under his home. John knew of the leak when his water was shut off for the
winter, but did nothing to repair it when the water was turned back on in the
spring. The leak has since been repaired. The board examined the water
bills from 2007 and 2008 for the months March, April, May and June. The
March and April Bills were the same both years – the minimum of $71.25
The May 2007 bill showed that we used 10,400 gallons and were charged
the minimum of $71.25 The May 2008 bill showed that we used 37,100
gallons and were charged $151.92. We also examined the June 2007 and
2008 bills in the same fashion. June 2007 we used 38,000 gallons and were
billed $155.23. In June 2008 we used 41,300 gallons and were billed
$167.37 The board decided to subtract the dollar amounts used for May and
June in 2007 from the dollar amounts for those months in 2008, add the
differences, then take 80% of that amount as the assessment for John Meyer.
The arithmetic is as follows: May (2008 – 2007) $151.92 - $71.25 = $80.67
June (2008-2007) $16.37 - $155.23 = $12.14
We added these two figures together $80.67 + $12.14 = $92.81 then took
80% of this amount. $92.81 x 0.80 = $74.25 We assessed John Meyer
$74.25 for the water used during his leak and instructed Northcoast to bill
him in a separate statement instead of waiting for the next quarterly
assessmet.

The park inspection that was done by the Health Department on May 28,
2008 showed no significant violations. We were told to get a USCG
flotation ring in place near the marina. (This has already been taken care of.)
The other violation was to put a back flow protector on the spigot on the
west side of the marina. We have had them in place in past years, but
someone keeps removing them. A new one will again be installed this year.
We have a serious need to replace the water crock at Steve Cifranic‘s. Scott
had hoped to have an estimate by this trustees meeting, but the guy he called
hasn‘t done it yet. We are guessing it will be in the neighborhood of $1000.
Steve does not have the ability to shut off his water.

We contracted with Adkins Sewer Cleaning Company, to flush our Sewers.
We have done this before about 5 years ago. We are looking at having it
done during the week of July 7 to July 11. We will notify all residents and
remind them to make sure their toilet lids are down in case there is any
turbulence or splashing in the bowl caused by the high pressure that is used.
Some suggested also placing plastic wrap over the ceramic bowl then
closing the lid. (Although that may not really be necessary.) The very least
you should do is to make sure the toilet lids are down.

We are planning on putting down some slag type gravel at the pavilion and
some soil to level out the area near the steps and grass areas.

We have solar lights which will have red and green lenses installed that will
be used to mark the entrance to our channel for boaters who do night
boating. We still need to get approval from the membership on Linda Drive
in order to put one of the lights on their property. Pending approval, the
lights will be installed soon.
Darlene Kolesar gave a report on the progress she was making in selecting
new style lighting for the street at Baywinds. She has looked at path lights
as well as pole lights. We are looking into using our existing poles and
changing out the lights. We would also like to put them on a separate meter.
Darlene will continue to work on this and report back to the trustees.
The meeting was finally adjourned at 12:15 pm.




                      Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                        July 2008 – September 2008

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2008. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 633 8858.
1. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting on May 17, 2008 Bob Bresky and
Rosemary Trimmer were elected as trustees for a two year term. After the meeting, the
board met in executive session to elect officers. The results follow: Scott Pritchard -
President, Bob Bresky – Treasurer, Doris Potter – Secretary, Rosemary Trimmer, Darlene
Kolesar and Ron Potter – Trustees.

2. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean-up was held at 1pm on Saturday May 17,
2008 after the annual meeting. We had a good turn out and were able to accomplish a lot
of work in a very short period of time. Thank you to all who participated. You had a
hand in beautifying the park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most
importantly, a BIG THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year
after year, donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
After the clean up, we had a hamburger and hot dog picnic. A good time was had by all.

3. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your property for the summer.

4. Pavilion Project: The Pavilion Project will continue again this year with the
installation of the ceiling and electrical wiring, lights and fans. The shed will also need to
be sided. If finances are available, we will move the bathroom in preparation for the
construction of the kitchen. Darlene Kolesar suggested that we set aside work time – say
from 8am – noon. That way, people can plan on helping and still be able to enjoy the rest
of the day out on the water. WE DO NEED YOUR HELP. Please contact Scott to let
him know that you are willing to help. We all gain by the completion of this project!
Besides, working together can be a lot of fun and builds camaraderie. Best of all, no
special skills are needed – on-the-job training will be provided! 

5. Parking of Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the launch
ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer). For
emergency access needs, do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting to want to
park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and clear. On
another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using golf carts should be accompanied by
an adult and observe the 5 mph speed limit. In the past, we have received complaints
from residents and neighbors. No one should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or
Commadore Court. Please be cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts
will not have to be instituted.

6. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on April 12, 2008.
This is the fourth year that we have tied off the docks and free floated them in the center
of the marina. This has saved the association a good deal of money in not having to have
them removed to land, then launched again in the spring. Thank you to all who turned
out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land moorings for the summer. In
just two hours the docks were back into their summer positions thanks to Jim Kolesar,
Craig Good, Ron Potter, Scott & Shari Aliff, Mike Trimmer, Darryl Will, Mark
Gorrell, Paul Orient, Scott Pritchard and Bob Bresky.

7. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
provided later. July 5, Rib Fest; July 26th – Fifth annual Christmas in July. You are
asked to decorate the week before -- (July 19th). The previous year’s events were a
tremendous success and a lot of fun. Don’t forget to start hunting for that “special
gift” for the gift exchange; August 2nd We will have our fourth annual River Run
with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run ends in Freemont at the Tackle Box
Restaurant for lunch and presentation of “awards”. Rain date for the River Run
will be the following Saturday August 9. Let Cliff Gerber know if you are interested
in the river run. September 13th or 20th (Final date to be announced later) Clam
Bake.

8. Kentucky Derby Party: Thank you to Darlene and Jim for hosting the third annual
Kentucky Derby Party on May 3rd. It was a fun time (although a bit cool) and everyone
had a chance to bet on their favorite horse. Several people picked the winner and shared
in the prize money.

9. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim who work so hard to plan and put
together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance at
these events. It makes it much easier to plan the food needs and details for each event.
They would also appreciate some assistance in set up of the tables etc. before the event
and clean up after. Many people come to the social events, but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please offer Jim and Darlene your assistance at future social events.

10. Sewer Line Flushing: We will soon be having the sewer lines flushed and cleaned
out. The process involves using a very strong water jet. IT IS HIGHLY
RECOMMENDED THAT YOU MAKE SURE YOUR TOILET SEATS AND LIDS
ARE IN THE DOWN POSITION. The reason being, the process can cause some
turbulence and splashing in the bowl. To prevent ―brown water‖ from getting on walls
and floors follow the instruction above. It was suggested to cover the bowl opening with
Saran Wrap in addition to putting the lid and seat down. Be sure to remove the Saran
Wrap before using!  You will be notified in advance when the sewers will be
cleaned so that you can take proper precautions.

11. Split Rail Fence: Our neighbor to the East on Linda Drive is planning on taking
down the old snow fence and putting up a split rail fence like we did in the marina. He
asked permission to move the last three of our posts over a few inches in order to
straighten out the fence and to make it all look uniform. He discussed this with Scott and
Scott discussed it with the board. Permission was granted.

12. Bi-Annual Meeting: A few people have expressed concerns that their voice isn‘t
being heard when it comes to the budget and assessments. As a result, the board has
decided to hold a Bi-Annual meeting the third Saturday in October each year at the
Danbury Township Hall. This year, the meeting will be Saturday October 18, 2008. The
meeting is open to all members for the purpose of discussing and setting the budget for
the following year and any recommendations for assessment increases or decreases. You
may vote if present, but you CANNOT vote by absentee ballot. You MAY however,
vote by proxy.

13. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. There
have been some problems with the website, but it looks like it is back up and running
again. Our website address is www.baywinds.info The password to get into the website
is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the site as secure
as possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter, trustee meeting minutes,
photos of past social events, and a host of other information that you might like to know
about Baywinds.

14. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5mph speed limit in the park.
Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5mph speed
limit is for the safety of all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed
limit in the park as well.

15. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on a
leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of others if your
pet relieves himself in the common areas, jetty or anywhere else, by cleaning up after
them.

16. Yard Waste: Please refrain from dumping yard waste such as grass clippings,
weeds, brush etc. on the jetty or over the side on the rocks. Dispose of these things
properly. If necessary, they can be taken to the ―Bio Fill‖ in Lakeside/Marblehead.

17. Congratulations Carole Kmetz: Carole recently retired from Key Bank. She now
will have more time to enjoy Baywinds and keep Richard from getting into trouble. 
We also offer a very big Thank You to Carole for putting together the ―Treasured
Recipes from Baywinds‖ cookbook. They were distributed at the annual meeting on
May 17th. If you didn‘t get a copy, see Carole.


  HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT BAYWINDS THIS
                   SUMMER !

                                     BAYWINDS

                                    March 22, 2008

Present: Bob Bresky, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard and Secretary Doris Potter.

Scott called the meeting to order at 10:17 A.M.
Financial Report: Bob reported the following:

       Renewal of our $2,778.01 Certificate of Deposit with First Federal was at the rate
       of 4.9% for 6 months.

       We ended the year of 2007 in the black with a balance of $595.31. Total interest
       earned in 2007 was $232.82.

       We had to pay Federal Income Tax of $35.00 on the interest of $232.82

       We also have a new annual fee of $25.00, payable to the State of Ohio, and a form
       called   ―Statement Of Continued Existence Of Corporation‖ that must be
       completed, attesting to the fact that Bay Winds is still in existence.

       The submerged land lease remained the same, at the current rate of $614.76 a
       year. It was expected to increase by as much as 20%. The Trustees have decided
       not to question why the fee remained the same.

       Property Tax for lots 24 and 25 are $355.48 a half year.

       As of February 29, 2008, our financial status is:
              $ 4,984.96 in Checking
                5,982.27 in Savings
                2,778.01 in a Certificate of Deposit

Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided. Details will follow.

On April 12, 2008 the docks will be put back in place. Notification for helpers will be
sent.

Discussion followed concerning garbage pick-up. Perhaps some home owners may want
to go in together to save money. Bob offered to check on this, and make a report at the
Annual Meeting.
Crock Replacement: An inspection will be made to determine which ones need to be
replaced, and prioritized.

Pavilion: Installation of the ceiling and electrical wiring are going to be done this year,
and depending on finances, the bathroom will be moved in preparation for the kitchen.

Lawn Maintenance: Matt (of Matt‘s Lawn Service) will be contacted to see if he would
be able to periodically remove brush for us that residents might have and if there would
be any extra charge.

Mulch: Bruce, of Traver Tree Service, will be contacted for delivery of mulch for the
common areas.

Street: The street is in need of attention due to the hard winter. Patching may need to be
done, and perhaps a coat of gravel. This will be determined when the weather breaks.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 12:15 P.M.

                     Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                        April 2008 – June 2008
Hello Everyone – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds News since the last newsletter
in December 2007. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 -633-8858 and
Scott can be reached by e-mail at wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440 – 748 – 2845 or
419 – 798 – 2300.

1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 17, 2008 to attend the
annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to the
meeting. At this meeting, two trustees will need to elected. The terms of Rosemary
Trimmer and Bob Bresky will expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee
position, please contact one of the current trustees so that your name may be placed on
the ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan on
giving us a helping hand! To make a day of it, we will have a hotdog and hamburger
picnic in the evening. You will receive details later.
2. Docks Back Into Position: Sometime in March or April, we will need to take a
Saturday or Sunday to put the docks back into position for the 2008 boating season. This
is a relatively easy job and goes rather quickly if we have enough help. Please consider
helping with this project. Let Scott or me know if you would be able to help with
this task. Tentative dates for doing this are Saturday March 15th or Saturday April
12th. The date, of course, will depend on the weather and if the marina is clear of ice.

3. Condolences to John and Judy Keiser: It is with sadness that we report that
members of our Baywinds Family have lost a loved one this past November. Judy
Keiser‘s father passed away on November 9, 2007 at the age of 90. That day also had
another special significance in that it was the 67th anniversary of her parent‘s marriage.
All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt sympathies to Judy and John and their family.
We will be contacting Judy and John in the spring to discuss the planting of a memorial
tree in honor of her father.

4. Bi-Annual Meeting: A few people have expressed concerns that their voice is not
being heard when it comes to the budget and assessments. The board has decided to hold
a Bi-Annual meeting the third Saturday in October each year at the Danbury Township
Hall. This meeting will be open to all members for the purpose of discussing and setting
the budget for the following year and any recommendations for assessment increases or
decreases. You may vote if present, but you cannot vote by absentee ballot. You may
however, vote by proxy.

5. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats stored on lot 25 for the winter should be
removed by no later than the weekend of May 3, 2008 (or earlier if possible). By
then, the grass will be growing enough that our new mowing service provided by Matt
Minto will need access to the lot so that he can keep the park grounds looking nice.
6. Lot 25 Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are
reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of any kind of boat trailer.
This lot is only to be used for over-flow parking of guest cars and the occasional
TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend). In addition, remember
that you MAY NOT store trailers on your own lot.

7. Bike and Hike Trail: I reported in the last newsletter that a bike and hike trail is to
be constructed in the Meadow Brook Preserve directly across from the entrance to
Baywinds off Bayshore Road. There will be a parking area set several hundred feet back
from the road which will lead to the Bike and Hike trail. The trail will meander through
the Preserve and around the water. Construction was scheduled to be completed by May
2008. However, at the time of this writing, I‘m not sure that much progress has been
made on this project. When it is finished, it will be a nice addition to the neighborhood,
and a place where many of us will be able to enjoy a nice hike or bike ride.

8. Speed Alert: As always, please remember to observe the posted 5 mph speed limit in
the park. Some residents have a tendency to drive a little faster than they should through
the park. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all residents, children and guests.
Please make your guests aware of the speed limit in the park as well.
9. Pavilion: Work on the pavilion will continue throughout the summer as we have the
funds and time to do so. We need to enclose the ceiling in the pavilion, add the lighting
and fans and do a little painting. In addition, we need to side the storage barn. After that,
we will start work on the bathrooms and kitchen area. Please offer your services to help
put the finishing touches on the pavilion.

10. Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar is planning on
an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday May 3, 2008 at their place at
Baywinds around 5:00 pm. It will be a simple get together with drinks and hors d‘oevres.
If you plan on attending, you are asked to bring a small appetizer and beer if you would
like to drink beer. Otherwise, Darlene will provide other beverages. Everyone is
welcome. Darlene also indicated that Hats Are Required for this Kentucky Derby
event. :-) If you are planning on attending, please contact Darlene and Jim at
216-362-6123 or via e-mail dak54@aol.com




                       Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                        July 2007 – September 2007

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2007. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 633 8858.

1. Condolences to John Meyer and his family: It is with sadness that we report the
passing of Ralph Meyer - a long-time resident of Baywinds, and the father of John
Meyer. Ralph passed away in April. All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt
sympathies to John and his family. A Bradford Pear Tree was planted in remembrance of
Ralph in front of John‘s Baywinds home.

2. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting on May 19, 2007 Scott Pritchard, Ron
Potter and Darlene Kolesar were elected as trustees for a two year term. After the
meeting, the board met in executive session to elect officers. The results follow: Scott
Pritchard - President, Bob Bresky – Treasurer, Doris Potter – Secretary, Rosemary
Trimmer, Darlene Kolesar and Ron Potter – Trustees. The board would also like to thank
Kathy Good for her service on the board for the last two years.

3. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean-up was held at 1pm on Saturday May 19,
2007 after the annual meeting. We had a fantastic turn out and were able to accomplish a
lot of work in a very short period of time. Thank you to all who participated. You had a
hand in beautifying the park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most
importantly, a BIG THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year
after year, donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
After the clean up, we had a hamburger and hot dog picnic at the Kolesar‘s and French‘s.
A good time was had by all.

4. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your property for the summer.

5. Pavilion Project: The second phase of the pavilion project has begun. We are
getting ready to pour the concrete and then we will enter the cosmetic phase of the project
with siding, painting , and finish work etc. We will need your help with this. Darlene
Kolesar suggested that we set aside work time on Saturdays and/or Sundays – say from
8am – noon. That way, people can plan on helping and still be able to enjoy the rest of
the day out on the water. WE DO NEED YOUR HELP. Please contact Scott to let him
know that you are willing to help in finishing the Pavilion. We all gain by the completion
of this project! Besides, working together can be a lot of fun and builds camaraderie.
Best of all, no special skills are needed – on-the-job training will be provided! 

6. Parking Of Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the launch
ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer). For
emergency access needs, do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting to want to
park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and clear. On
another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using golf carts should be accompanied by
an adult and observe the 5 mph speed limit. In the past, we have received complaints
from residents and neighbors. No one should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or
Commadore Court. Please be cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts
will not have to be instituted.

7. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on March 31, 2007
after the Trustees meeting. This is the third year that we have tied off the docks and free
floated them in the center of the marina. This has saved the association a good deal of
money in not having to have them removed to land, then launched again in the Spring.
Thank you to all who turned out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land
moorings for the summer. In just two hours the docks were back into their summer
positions thanks to Jim Kolesar, Bill Beach, Jeff Schmitz, Craig Good, Ron Potter,
Mark Gorrell, Scott Pritchard and Bob Bresky.

8. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
provided later. July 7, Rib Fest; July 28th – Fourth annual Christmas in July. You
are asked to decorate the week before -- (July 21 st). The previous year’s events
were a tremendous success and a lot of fun. Don’t forget to start hunting for that
“special gift” for the gift exchange.; August 11th we will have our third annual
River Run with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run ends in Freemont at the Tackle
Box Restaurant for lunch and presentation of “awards”. Last year’s winners –
Darlene and Jim Kolesar are in charge of the River Run this year. Something NEW
this year -- in the evening, we will be going out to eat at a local restaurant. All are
welcome to join the group – even if you didn’t go on the River Run. Let Darlene and
Jim know if you are interested in the river run or just dinner after, or both! ;
August 25th , Bratwurst and hot dogs; September 15th Clam Bake.

9. Kentucky Derby Party: Thank you to Darlene and Jim for hosting the second annual
Kentucky Derby Party on May 5th. It was a fun time (although a bit cool) and everyone
had a chance to bet on their favorite horse. Eight people picked the winner and shared in
the prize money.

10. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim who work so hard to plan and put
together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance at
these events. It makes it much easier to plan the food needs and details for each event.
They would also appreciate some assistance in set up of the tables etc. before the event
and clean up after. Many people come to the social events, but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please offer Jim and Darlene your assistance at future social events.

11. Farewell To Bob and Nancy Lonsinger: Bob and Nancy recently sold their
Baywinds home and will shortly be moving back to Florida. They plan on spending their
winters in the Carolinas. Although we will miss them, we wish them well on their new
adventures in life.

12. Welcome Steve Cifranic: Steve recently purchased unit 14 from his mother. We
welcome Steve to the ―official‖ Baywinds family. Steve certainly is no stranger to
Baywinds, but now is the official owner of unit 14.

13. Brush Removal: Troy Blevins who owns The Cutting Edge Lawn Care Company,
has again offered to remove brush free of charge for Baywinds residents. He will do this
on the last Thursday of every month when he is here cutting grass. If you have
cleared brush from your property, bundle it in easily handled sizes, and leave it in your
driveway. Troy will remove it when he mows that week.

14. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. Jim
has also generously offered to cover the cost of renewing the hosting package for our
website this year. Our website address is www.baywinds.info The password to get into
the website is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the
sight as secure as possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter, trustee
meeting minutes, photos of past social events, and a host of other information that you
might like to know about Baywinds.

15. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5mph speed limit in the park.
Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5mph speed
limit is for the safety of all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed
limit in the park as well.
16. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on a
leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of others if your
pet relieves himself in the common areas, jetty or anywhere else, by cleaning up after
them.

  HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT BAYWINDS THIS
     SUMMER -- ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
  BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND BAY, AND ABOVE ALL, YOUR
              FRIENDS AT BAYWINDS!




                Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                           April 2007 – June 2007
Hello Everyone – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds News since the last
newsletter in December 2006. As always, if there are any questions, feel free
to contact any of the trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at
rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858 and Scott can be reached by e-mail at
wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440-748-2845 or 419-798-2300.

1. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 19, 2007 to
attend the annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be
mailed out closer to the meeting. At this meeting, three trustees will need to
be elected. The terms of Ron Potter, Scott Prichard and Kathy Good will
expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee position, please
contact one of the current trustees so that your name may be placed on the
ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan
on giving us a helping hand! To make a day of it, we will have a hotdog and
hamburger picnic in the evening. Details later.

2. Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held at
Baywinds on Saturday March 31, 2007. After this meeting, (weather
permitting) we will be putting the docks back into position for the 2007
boating season. This is a relatively easy job and goes quickly if we have
enough help. Please consider giving some of your time on that date to help
with this project. Let Scott know if you can help us with this task. He will be
able to give you an approximate time that we will be starting.

3. Looking Ahead: We will continue our work to finish remodeling the
pump house and finish the picnic pavilion. We will be concentrating on the
cosmetic part of the construction: siding, painting, concrete etc. Scott would
like to get the ground leveled and forms set in early April, so that the concrete
floor can be poured for the pavilion. If you would be willing to help with this,
please let Scott know. We would then be able to use the Pavilion for our first
social event May 19th – the Hamburger and Hotdog get together. Of course,
we will still need your help throughout the summer to help with each phase of
the construction. No one expects you to work all day and miss out on the fun
in the water. But if you could at least volunteer and set aside some time
during the weekends, we should be able to get the finishing touches
completed.

4. A Personal Note: Doris Potter underwent knee replacement surgery in
January. I’m happy to report that she is doing very well and is up and around
and keeping her nurse (Ron) on his toes.

5. New Ohio Department of Health Regulations: We received notification
from the Ohio Department of Health of new regulations that went into effect
January 1, 2007 regarding inspection requirements of Manufactured Home
Park foundation plans. For anyone planning on installing a new home in
Baywinds, there is now a new set of hoops for you to jump through. There
are inspections of each base support installed, and home installation set up
(footing, electrical and final inspection) that occurs after January 1, 2007. We
have the information for you on file as to how to call for these inspections and
the fees involved: $153 per inspection and a $75 charge for a “seal” required
by the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission to demonstrate compliance
with OMHC installation rules. For further information, see Scott or Bob.

6. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for
the winter should be removed by no later that April 29, 2007. By then, the
grass will be growing enough that the mowers will need access so that they can
keep the park grounds looking nice.

speed limit in the park. Some people have a tendency to drive a little faster
than they should through the park. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of
all residents and guests. Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the
park as well.

9. Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar is
planning an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday May 5,
2007 at their place at Baywinds around 4:30 pm. It will be a simple get
together with drinks and hors d’oevres. If you are planning on attending,
please contact Darlene and Jim at 216-362-6123 or via e-mail dak54@aol.com

As Spring approaches and the snow, ice and cold become only memories, we
can all look forward to seeing one another again and getting started on
another fun summer at Baywinds!

                                    BAYWINDS
                                TRUSTEES MEETING
                                  MARCH 31, 2007

Present: Bob Bresky, Kathy Good, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard, Secretary, Doris Potter
and guest, Mark Gorrell

Absent: Rosemary Trimmer

Scott called the meeting to order at 10 A.M., mainly to discuss finances and the calendar.

The minutes of the October 22, 2006 meeting were approved.

The Annual Meeting will be on May 19, 2007, gathering at 9:30 A.M. for a social time,
with the meeting starting at 10 A.M. The meeting will be at the Township Hall.

Scott is anticipating a discussion over the very small increase in the quarterly dues from
$256.60 /quarter to $262/quarter – which amounts to only $1.80 per month or 45 cents
per week. He reminded us that the Trustees have the authority to do whatever needs to be
done in order to balance the budget. Bob offered to include in his Financial Report to the
association at the annual meeting, the same information that he sent to Bill Beach
explaining the reasons for the increase. (Bill had questioned the need for the increase and
suggested that such increases should be discussed with all members and voted on by the
membership.)

Scott reported that the pavilion project will continue, and he plans to have the concrete
poured and raise the doorsills so we will be able to use it this summer. So far, we haven‘t
had to touch the reserves for this project. Scott said that help will be requested.

Bob gave the following Financial Report:

       $ 1,814.06 Check Book Balance
        6,729.00 in Savings
        1,053.67 Certificate of Deposit
        2,635.35 Certificate of Deposit earning 5.27%
           398.80 Accounts Receivable

      $12, 630.88 Total Assets

Bob also reported that $29.00 was sent to the Federal Government as we had $213.00 in
taxable income.

Darlene Kolesar then joined the meeting, and reported on the following social events for
2007:

       May 5 – Kentucky Derby Party at Jim & Darlene‘s – women must wear hats
       May 19 – (Annual Meeting) Park clean-up after which there will be a
Hamburger/Hot
               Dog Picnic with main dishes brought by even numbered units and dessert
by odd
               numbered units.
       July 7 – Rib Fest
       July 28 – Christmas in July
       August 11 – Jet Ski run and out to eat at a local restaurant later.
       August 25 – Brats and Hot Dogs
       September 15 – Clam Bake

Kathy had no report to give on the streetlights.

In response to an inquiry by Jeff Schmitz regarding what safe-guards we had in place to
protect us against misappropriation of funds by our management company, (such as
occurred with MultiVest Management Co. in Cleveland) we contacted Barb Gresh to
have her check with our Insurance carrier (Erie Insurance) to see if we were covered for
this type of loss. As of the date of the trustee‘s meeting, we were still waiting for
clarification on this issue. In the mean time, we requested that two signatures be required
to withdraw or transfer funds from any CD or savings account that we hold. One of the
signatures would have to be either Scott Pritchard‘s or Bob Bresky‘s.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:45 A.M.

Respectfully submitted,


Doris Potter

       also like to thank Jeff Schmitz for his service on the board for the last two years.
   19. Park Clean Up: The annual park clean up was held at 1PM on Saturday May 20,
       2006 after the annual meeting. We had a wonderful turn out and were able to
       accomplish a lot of work in a very short period of time with everyone working
       together. Thank you to all who participated. You had a hand in beautifying the
       park and your efforts will be visible all summer. Most importantly, a BIG
       THANK YOU to John and Judy Keiser who so generously, year after year,
       donate the many flats of flowers that are planted to beautify the common areas.
       John and Judy really outdid themselves this year. Scott could hardly get them all
       in his truck to bring back to Baywinds! After the clean up, we had a hamburger
       and hot dog picnic at the marina. A good time was had by all.
   20. Lot #25 Parking: Please be reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for
       storage of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers
       TEMPORARILY over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before
       you leave. You are also reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on your
       property for the summer.
   21. Pavilion Project: The pavilion project will begin shortly as soon as all the
       necessary permits are secured. We had to apply for commercial permits and are
       awaiting their issue. The construction will begin with phase three , then phases
       one and two. At the time of the approval of this project in July of 2005, many of
       you expressed interest in helping with the construction. We will need muscles to
    help complete each phase of the project. Please remember this when the project
    begins. We will all benefit by its completion.
22. Parking of Golf Carts at the Marina: Please remember not to park cars or golf
    carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the
    launch ramp. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John
    Meyer). For emergency access needs, please do not park golf carts on the jetty.
    It is tempting to want to park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must
    be kept free and clear. On another note regarding Golf Carts: Children using
    golf carts should be accompanied by an adult and observe the 5 mph speed
    limit. We have received complaints from residents and neighbors. No one
    should be driving golf carts on Linda Drive or Commadore Court. Please be
    cautious so that stronger policies regarding golf carts will not have to be
    instituted.
23. Docks: The docks were reconnected to their moorings this spring on April 1,
    2006 after the Trustees meeting. The new method of free floating and tying off
    the docks in the center of the marina works well. This is the second year we have
    tried this, and it has saved the association a bundle of money. Thank you to all
    who turned out to help reposition the docks and attach them to their land
    moorings for the summer – Craig Good, Mark Gorrell, Jim Kolesar, Frank
    Modliszewski, Cliff Gerber, Bill Beach, Ron Potter, John Meyer, Scott
    Pritchard, and Bob Bresky.
24. Mark Your Calendar Now For Our Baywinds Social Events: Details will be
    provided later. July 1, Rib Fest; July 29 Third Annual Christmas In July – We
    will prepare four Turkeys and everyone will be asked to bring their favorite
    Christmas dish. You are also asked to decorate the week before (July 22nd).
    Last year’s event was a tremendous success and a lot of fun. In Mid August, we
    will have our second annual River Run with Jet Skis and Boats. The river run
    ends in Freemont at the Tackle Box Restaurant for lunch and presentation of
    “awards”. Cliff Gerber is in charge of the River Run. The Date will be
    announced later. September 2, Fish Fry – Bill and Sue Beach are hosting this
    and providing the fish. September 16, Our annual Clam Bake
25. Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim Kolesar, who work so hard to plan
    and put together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your
    attendance at these events. It makes it much easier for them to plan the food
    needs and details for each event. They would also appreciate some assistance in
    set up before the event and clean up after the event. Many people come to the
    social but fail to realize just how much work goes into planning the event and
    getting things ready so that everyone can have a good time. Please offer Jim and
    Darlene your assistance at future social events.
26. Street Lighing: Kathy Good is checking on our options to change our street
    lighting. Details will be provided later as soon as Kathy does some more
    investigating. In the mean time, the board voted to remove ourselves from the
    expired maintenance contract with Ohio Edison for the street lighting and have
    them placed on a metered basis with a switch that we can control. This should
    save us some money on our monthly bill from Ohio Edison. We are still under a
    maintenance contract for the marina lighting.
  27. As Needed Crock Replacements: Water leaks were discovered in the water shut
      off crocks at French‘s and Good‘s. Arrangements have been made to have them
      replaced.
  28. Donation of Storage Shed: Bob Bresky is replacing his current storage shed
      with a larger one and has offered to donate the old one to the association. The
      board voted to accept the donation and discussed with everyone at the annual
      meeting where it should be placed. People asked to postpone the decision as to
      where to place the storage shed until they could look at the options suggested
      while attending the picnic that evening. That evening and throughout the day,
      people expressed their concerns and suggestions. It seems to be the consensus
      that the storage shed should be placed north of the pump house on the lot line
      against the current snow fence. The shed measures 8‘3‖ wide by 12‘3‖ deep. The
      sight will be prepared with gravel. Several people will be needed to help move
      the shed if we can‘t find someone to move it for us.
  29. House At the Entrance: The house at the entrance to the park has been sold.
      The new owners will have full use of their dock as long as the pay their portion of
      the monthly maintenance fee. If they should choose not do so, by agreement, the
      dock will return to Baywinds ownership.
  30. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If
      you haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info The password
      to get into the sight is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we
      may keep the sight as secure as reasonably possible. You will find a copy of the
      current newsletter posted at the site, photos of past social events, and other
      information that you might like to know about Baywinds.
  31. Speed Limit: Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in the park as
      you drive down the road. Sometimes we have a tendency to go a little faster than
      we should. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all residents and guests.
      Please advise your GUESTS of the speed limit in the park as well.
  32. Poop Patrol: Rules and Regulations at Baywinds require that all dogs be kept on
      a leash or lead and not allowed to run free. Also, please be considerate of your
      neighbors if your pets relieve themselves on other people‘s property, by cleaning
      up after them.

TO EVERYONE: HAVE A FUN, SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT
BAYWIDS THIS SUMMER – ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND BAY AND ABOVE ALL, YOUR FRIENDS
AT BAYWINDS.



      Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                         April 2006 – June 2006
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in
December 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I
can be reached by e-mail at rbresy@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858 and Scott can be reached by
e-mail at wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440 -748-2845 or 419 – 798 – 2300.


       8. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 20, 2006 to attend the
           annual Baywinds meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to
           the meeting. At this meeting, two trustees will need to be elected. The terms of Jeff
           Schmitz and Bob Bresky will expire. If you are interested in running for an open
           trustee position, please contact one of the trustees so that your name can be placed on
           the ballot. After the meeting, we will have our usual park clean up. Please plan on
           giving us a helping hand. To make a day of it, we will have a hot dog and hamburgers
           picnic in the evening. Details later.
       9. Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held at Baywinds on
           Saturday April 1, 2006. After this meeting, we will be putting the docks back into
           position for the 2006 boating season. This is a relatively easy job and goes quickly if
           we have enough help. Please consider giving some of your time on that date to help
           with this project. Please let Scott know if you can help us with this task. He will be
           able to give you an approximate time that we will be starting.
       10. Looking Ahead: The only major project that the board approved was the remodeling
           of the pump house and building of the picnic pavilion. This project was put on hold at
           the last trustees meeting but will begin this Spring. All members who voted in favor of
           this project and indicated that they would help with the construction, please remember
           that promise as we begin. Contact Scott for details and ways that you can help.
           Another possible change in the park may be in the lighting. Kathy Good volunteered to
           check with Ohio Edison to seek an alternate method of illuminating the park at night.
       11. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for the winter
           should be removed by no later than April 30, 2006. By then, the grass will be
           growing and the mowers will need unrestricted access so that they can keep the park
           grounds looking nice.
       12. Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are
           reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot
           is only to be used for over-flow parking of gust cars and the occasional TEMPORARY
           parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend). You may also NOT store trailers on
           your own lot.
       13. We’ve Got You On RADAR:  As always, please remember to observe the 5 mph
           speed limit in the park. Some people have a tendency to drive a little faster than they
           should. The 5 mph speed limit is for the safety of all the residents and their guests.
           Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the park as well.
                                             (OVER PLEASE)
       14. Mark Your Calendar – Kentucky Derby Party: Darlene Kolesar asked me to let
           you know that she is planning an early season event – a Kentucky Derby Party on
           Saturday May 6, 2006 at their place at Baywinds around 4:30 pm. It will be a simple
           get together with drinks and hors d‘oeuvres. If you are planning on attending, please
       contact Darlene and Jim at 216-362-6123 or via e-mail jimpp22171@aol.com to let
       them know that you are coming and what hors d‘oeuvre /drink your are bringing.

As Spring approaches and the snow, ice and cold become only memories, we can all look
forward to seeing one another again and getting started on another fun summer at Baywinds.
Until then, take care.

                                    BAYWINDS
                                TRUSTEES MEETING
                                   APRIL 1, 2006

Present: Bob Bresky, Kathy Good, Ron Potter, Scott Pritchard and guests
Mark Gorrell and Darlene Kolesar
Absent: Jeff Schmitz

Scott called the meeting to order at 9:10 A.M.

Annual Meeting: The Annual Meeting of BayWinds will be at 10 A.M. on Saturday,
May 20, 2006, at the Danbury Township Hall in Lakeside-Marblehead, Ohio. There will
be a social time from 9:30 A.M. to 10 A.M. Election of two Trustees will take place, as
Bob and Jeff‘s terms expire. Bob has agreed to run again.

Park Cleanup: There will be a cleanup of the Park after the Annual Meeting, at 1 P.M.
Scott will order the same amount of mulch as he did in 2005. Hamburgers and hot dogs
will be served in the evening.

Scott reported: The Ottawa County District Board of Health commented that our Park
is the nicest one to inspect -- with very few citations being issued.
         Scott spoke to Len Parton, and was told that the house next to our entrance has
been sold to the people that have been living there. Scott reminded them that the Park‘s
lot line runs half way through the homes side porch, and that nothing can be done to the
porch as the Park owns half of it. The homeowners asked if the street could be widened
in the area by the house for parking, and the Trustees voted against it.
        Scott also had new dock pins made to replace some that were bent or damaged, at
a cost of only $100.
        In addition, Scott reported that the Pump House remodeling would begin with
Phase Three. Greisch will dig the eight holes for the Pavilion at a cost of only $25 each.
We will also need to add another course of block on the Pump House complex in order to
replace the roof. The project will begin in early May. Phases One and Two will be
postponed.

Bob reported: He and Mark are replacing their barn with a larger one and have offered
their current one to the Association unless it is sold. The Trustees agreed to accept the
barn if it is not sold. Placement of it will be determined later.
Kathy reported: The lease with Ohio Edison for our streetlights has now expired. Ohio
Edison does not have any new lighting fixtures to replace the ones we have. Kathy
knows of lighting fixtures used in Arizona. She will be traveling to Arizona soon, and
will obtain a brochure. In the meantime she will ask Ohio Edison to install a meter for
our lights, so we will have control of them.

Darlene reported: The following dates for our socials:

       May 6 – Derby Day
       May 20 – Hamburgers and Hot Dogs
       July 1 – Rib Fest
       July 22 – Trim (decorate) homes for Christmas in July celebration
       Mid August – Jet Ski River Run
       Sept. 2 – Labor Day Fish Fry

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 10:30 A.M.

The Trustees then proceeded to install the remaining docks, along with the help of Bill
Beach, Cliff Gerber, Craig Good, Mark Gorrell, Jim Kolesar, John Meyer and Frank
Modliazewski.

Respectfully submitted,

Ronald J. Potter




                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                          (OCTOBER 2005 – DECEMBER 2005)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in July 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees
– Scot Pritchard, Ron Potter, Kathy Good, Jeff Schmitz or Bob Bresky. I can be reached
by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330- 633- 8858.

1.Trustee’s meeting of July 2, 2005: This was a short meeting to discuss some property
line problems with unit numbers 2,4 and 23. Len Parten (who, with his partners, used to
own the park) has agreed to help clear up the problems with the property lines in concert
with Prosser who certified the plat maps. The most significant problem is with lot 23 –
Ralph Meyer. In order to make these lots saleable, we need to make sure the lot
boundaries are accurately recorded. Ralph has offered the association a donation of
$1000 for the board‘s cooperation in cleaning up the property boundary discrepancies on
his property as well as the other areas of the park that were inaccurately recorded. The
board voted to accept this offer. The process of making the corrections is currently
underway.

2. Special Membership Meeting of July 23, 2005: At this meeting Baywinds residents
heard proposed plans regarding the remodeling of the pump house and building of a
pavilion. The estimated cost to do the project and build a kitchen, is $7250 – this is
completing as much of the work as possible ourselves. Some residents have offered to
donate cabinetry or appliances etc. The project can be broken down into six phases and
can be stopped or started at any time. After some discussion, a vote was taken, and by a
margin of 14 – 1, the project was approved. The nice thing about the project is that we
can fund the project by using some of the money in our reserves. No special assessment
to complete the project is anticipated. We will need muscles to help complete each phase
of the project and a number of residents at the meeting expressed interest in helping with
these phases. Please remember this as the project begins. We will all benefit by its
completion.

3.New Mailboxes Installed: At the time of this writing, we are in the process of
installing new mailboxes at the entrance to the park. They are white plastic and will be
mounted using a ―nautical‖ theme.

4.Sad News: By now, most of you have probably heard about the tragic accident suffered
by Nick Kolesar, (son of Darlene and Jim), on August 22nd. He was lighting a fire in a
Chiminea when a nearby gas can exploded causing Nick to suffer 2nd and 3rd degree
burns to about 22% of his body. At the time of this writing, he was transferred from the
burn unit to critical care at Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland. The good news is
that Nick is expected to make a full recovery, but it will be a lengthy process. Cards and
good wishes can be sent to Metrohealth Medical Center, 2500 Metrohealth Drive,
Cleveland, Ohio 44109 c/o Nick Kolesar. By the time you receive this, Nick may very
well be recuperating at home. Jim and Darlene‘s home address is 6975 Paula Drive,
Middleburgh Heights, Ohio 44130 . Please keep Nick, Darlene, Jim and Jimmy in your
prayers. They will need all of our help and support at this difficult time.

5. RIB FEST , CHRISTMAS IN JULY and POKER RUN: It goes without saying
that the Rib Fest held the Fourth of July weekend and the Christmas in July party, were,
without a doubt, the social events of the season! We had a fantastic turn out of residents
and friends for both events and everyone had a wonderful time. Santa ―Bill Beach‖
passed out gifts to the kids and then a gift exchange took place amongst residents. Many
of the houses were decorated with Christmas lights and trees etc. It was fun parading up
and down the street enjoying the lighting displays. Everyone was encouraged to help
judge the lighting displays including the kids. However, there seemed to be some foul
play and bribery taking place, because an unnamed source tells me that there was candy
being used for bribery at the home of one of our residents to entice the little children to
vote for them! 
Winner of the lighting contest was Scott and Denny with runner up status going to Bob
and Mark. These were memorable weekends. Photos taken during the events have been
posted on the Baywinds website and also on our bulletin board at the pump house.
Another good time was had by some Baywinds residents when they participated in the
first annual Baywinds Poker Run across the west basin and down the river to Fremont.
About a 70 mile round trip. We all had lunch at the Tackle Box where the trophy was
awarded to the winners – Todd Zimmerman and Scott Aliff. Congratulations!

6.WEBSITE: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. It can
be found at www.baywinds.info The password to get into the site is ―letmein‖ Please
keep the password confidential so that we can keep the site as secure as possible. Jim can
post photos on the site or other items of interest. You can send photos or items to him by
e-mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or ―snail‖mail him actual photos to his home address
and he will scan them and put them on the website. Photos of our social events this
summer a currently posted there.

7.BRUSH & BRANCH REMOVAL: Our lawn service provider --The Cutting Edge –
has again offered a special service to us at no cost – the removal of tree trimmings and
cut brush. They will remove the debris the first Thursday of every month. If you have
any cut brush or tree trimmings, tie them together in reasonably sized bundles and leave
them at the edge of your driveway at the appropriate time. They will then remove them
when they are here to cut the grass. They generally are here on Thursdays to mow.

8.WINTER IS ON THE WAY: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave water on
during the winter months, YOU MUST MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
ARE WRAPPED WTH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or so. If
your heat tape is old, you may want to have it checked to make sure that it is in
working order. Also it is the responsibility of each homeowner who chooses to shut
their water off for the winter to MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER IS SHUT OFF
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CROCK AND NOT JUST AT THE SERVICE
VALVE.

9.REMOVAL OF BOATS and POSITIONING OF DOCKS FOR THE WINTER:
Boats will need to be removed from the marina so that the docks can be secured for the
winter by NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15TH! If for some reason you need to leave
your boat in the water past this date, please see Scott so that special arrangements can
be made for you. The process that we used last year for securing the docks for the winter
by free floating them in the center of the marina worked very well and saved us a lot of
money. We would like to do that again this year, but would appreciate more help. It is
easy to do, just time consuming. If you can help us with this project, please contact
Scott to let him know. Now that we know how to do it, the project should go faster. We
just need several helping hands. Please consider helping.

10.E-MAIL ADDRESS UPDATE: Sometimes it is necessary for us to communicate
with everyone quickly. One way to do so is by e-mail. I have e-mail addresses for
everyone in the park EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING RESIDENTS: #4 Karen Brown;
#14 Margaret Cifranic; #22 Tim Feller; #17 Bill and Terri Feller; #2 Bob and Nancy
Lonsinger; #23 John/ Ralph Meyer; #12 Frank & Gloria Modlisjewski; #20 Tim and
Kathy Richardson; #1 Todd and Kristen Zimmerman; #1 Scott and Shari Aliff. If you
have an e-mail address, please send that to me at rbresky@neo.rr.com and I will add you
to the address book and also forward that information on to Scott.

11.THANK YOU: Many people throughout the year have taken it upon themselves to
do little jobs in the park or provide things for the park that benefit us all. Thank you so
much to all of you who have done so. The fruits of your labors can be seen throughout
the park as we look at the beauty of our summer playground. In the past, I have tried to
recognize all the folks that did nice things for us throughout the year. This year, I will
not, because I am always afraid of offending someone by omitting their name or not
knowing of the contribution they made. In any event, THANK YOU ONE AND ALL
FOR YOUR HELP IN KEEPING BAYWINDS LOOKING SHARP AND A
PLEASANT PLACE TO LIVE, VACATION and PLAY!




                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                           (JULY 2005 – SEPTEMBER 2005)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April 2005. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633- 8858.

1.Welcome To The New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to again say
welcome to our new residents Mike and Rosemary Trimmer who purchased Bob and
Peggy Lacour‘s summer place and Tim and Kathy Richardson who purchased Fred and
Emma Luzius‘ summer place. Please introduce yourself to them when you see them and
welcome them into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2.New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting held on May 21, 2005, Kathy Good,
Ron Potter and Scott Pritchard were elected as trustees for a two year term to fill the three
vacant seats. After the meeting, the board met in executive session and I agreed to stay
on as Treasurer, Scott Pritchard agreed to remain as President, and Doris Potter agreed to
remain as appointed Secretary.

3.Christmas In July: Please mark your calendar for Saturday July 23, 2005 when we
will hold our second annual Christmas In July Extravaganza. Last year was such a
success with everyone decorating their homes and the fun time had by all, we thought we
should definitely do it again. More details will follow.

4.Park Clean Up: The annual park clean up was held at 1PM on Saturday May 21, 2005
after the annual meeting. Although we did not have as large of a turn out as last year, we
were still able to accomplish a lot of work in a short period of time with all of us working
together. Thank you to all who participated. You had a hand in beautifying the park and
your efforts will be visible all summer. We all own a piece of this park and share in the
responsibility of maintaining it. Thank you to John and Judy Keiser who so generously
year after year donate the many flats of beautiful flowers that are planted to beautify the
common areas.

5.Lot #25 Parking: Everyone is reminded that lot number 25 is not to be used for
storage of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers
TEMPORARILY over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you
leave. You are also reminded that you cannot store your boat trailer on you property for
the summer.

6.Parking of Cars and Golf Carts at the Marina: Please remember not to park cars or
golf carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to the
launch ramp. If you park your car at the marina, please park it adjacent to and near the
pump house. Golf carts should be parked in the grassy area near lot #23 (John Meyer).
For emergency access needs, please do not park golf carts on the jetty. It is tempting
to want to park your golf cart near your boat dock, but the jetty must be kept free and
clear. Please abide by this request.

7.Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info . The password to get into
the sight is letmein. Please keep the password confidential so that we may keep the sight
as secure as reasonably possible. You will find a copy of the current newsletter posted at
the sight, photos of past social events, and other information that you might like to know
about Baywinds.

8.We’ve Got You On RADAR: Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in
the park as you drive down the newly resurfaced road. Without the usual bumps, we
might have a tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5 mph limit is for the
safety of all residents and guests. Please also advise your GUESTS of the speed limit in
the park.

9.New Projects: New white plastic mailboxes were purchased for the park to replace the
old rusting metal boxes. They still need to be installed. If you would like to help with
this project please let one of the trustees know. Also, at the annual meeting, a proposal
was put forth to look into the possibility and costs of remodeling the pump house, moving
the bathroom, installing a kitchen facility and building a picnic pavilion. With the help
and talents of a few Baywinds residents who have already expressed an interest in
working on this project, we may be able to complete it by just using some of the money
that we have built up over the years in our ―reserves‖ account without an additional
assessment to the membership. There was sufficient interest by the members who were
present at the annual meeting and the board was charged with developing plans and
costing them out. After that is done, another meeting will be held to present the cost and
feasibility to the membership for their approval.

10.Docks: We were fortunate to get through the past winter with very little in the way of
damage or repairs to the docks. Last fall it was discovered that a section of the main
floater had a hole in it on the bottom. It is believed that this puncture was caused by the
rocks as the water level dropped in the marina. Because winter was fast approaching, we
were unable to get it fixed then. On March 25, 2005 several of us removed that section
and floated it to the ramp where it was removed and repaired, then refloated for a cost of
$211. The new method for free floating and tying off the docks in the center of the
marina worked well and saved the association a bundle of money. Estimated savings
were between $600 - $1100. Thank you to all who turned out to help in the fall and/or in
the spring – Scott Pritchard, Scott Aliff, Todd Zimmerman, Bill Beach, Tim Feller, Ron
Potter, Mark Gorrell, Bob Bresky, Denny Fitzpatrick, Craig and Kathy Good, John
Meyer and Jim Kolesar. (My apologies if I have missed anyone.) To all-- thank you for
your hard work on behalf of the association.



11.Condolences to Rosemary & Michael Trimmer: It is with sadness that we report
that members of our Baywinds family have lost loved ones this past winter. It was
recently brought to my attention that Rosemary Trimmer lost her father this past winter.
All of us at Baywinds extend our heartfelt sympathies to Rosemary and Mike.

12.Please RSVP: On behalf of Darlene and Jim Kolesar who work so hard to plan and
put together our park social events, please remember to RSVP regarding your attendance
at these events. It makes it much easier for them to plan the food needs and details for
each event. They would also appreciate some assistance in set up before the event and
clean up after the event. Many people come to the socials but fail to realize just how
much work goes into planning the event and getting things ready so that everyone can
have a good time. Please think about offering Darlene and Jim some assistance at future
social events.

TO EVERYONE: HAVE A FUN, SAFE AND HAPPY TIME AT
BAYWINDS THIS SUMMER-- ENJOYING THE SUNNY WEATHER,
BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND ABOVE ALL – YOUR FRIENDS AT
BAYWINDS.

                    Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter
                                   April 2005 – June 2005
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in December
2004. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be reached by e-
mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633- 8858 and Scott can be reached by e-mail at
wspritchard@hotmail.com or at 440- 748-2845 or 419- 798-2300.

    10. Speedy Recovery To All: I‘m glad to report that Bill Feller and Doris Potter are doing well after
        their past surgeries. Richard Kmetz recently had rotator cuff surgery and is also recuperating
        nicely. I‘m sure all of them might enjoy a call or card if you have the time to do so.

    11. Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of Saturday May 21, 2005 to attend the annual
        Baywinds Meeting. Details of the time and place will be mailed out closer to the meeting. At this
        meeting, three trustees will need to be elected. The terms of Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and John
        Meyer will expire. If you are interested in running for an open trustee position, please contact one
        of the trustees so that your name can be placed on the ballot. Also, after the meeting, we will have
        our usual park clean up. Please plan on giving us a helping hand. To make a day of it, we will
        have a hot dogs and hamburgers picnic in the evening. Details later.

    12. Looking Ahead: At their last meeting, the board discussed proposed projects for this year which
        include the following: replace the rusted metal mailboxes at the front entrance with new plastic
        mailboxes; gut the pump house, move the bathroom and create a larger storage area. If you have
        any other suggestions, please let us know by contacting your trustees.

    13. Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held in March 2005.

    14. Marina Lighting: We finally were able to get Ohio Edison to move the security light to the other
        side of the marina to illuminate the marina and jetty. Unfortunately when they did this, the light
        didn‘t work anymore. They have been called and are scheduled to come out and fix the problem.

    15. Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS, you are reminded
        that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot is only to be used
        for over-flow parking of guest cars and the occasional TEMPORARY parking of a trailer (such
        as over the weekend). You may also NOT store trailers on your own lot.

    16. We’ve Got You On RADAR :--Please remember to observe the 5 mph speed limit in the park
        as you drive down the newly resurfaced road. Without the usual bumps, we might have a
        tendency to go a little faster than we should. The 5 mph limit is for the safety of all residents and
        guests. Please advise your guests of the speed limit in the park.

    17. Lot 25 Boat Removal: All trailers and boats that were stored on lot 25 for the winter should be
        removed by no later than April 30, 2005. By then, the grass will be growing and the mowers will
        need unobstructed access so that they can keep the park grounds looking nice.

    18. Get Well Card To Our Neighbor: Carol Kmetz informed me recently that our neighbor Paul
        Dragan on Linda Drive was recently diagnosed with stage four brain cancer and is taking radiation
        treatments. If you know Paul, it might be nice to send him a card. His address is Paul Dragan ,
        2274 S. Linda Drive, Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio 43440-9724
   We are all probably getting Spring Fever by now and can‘t wait for all the snow, cold and ice to
   disappear for good. It will be great to see all of you again soon and get started on another fun summer
   at Baywinds. Until then, take care.


                   Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                           (January 2005 – March 2005)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in October. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of
the trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or by
phone at 330-633-8858.

   9. 2004 Budget Approved: The trustees approved the operating budget
      for 2005 at their meeting on Saturday October 9, 2004 with no new
      increases in assessments.
   10.Marina Ready For Winter: The marina is now ready for whatever
      Old Man Winter has in store for us. This year, the trustees voted to
      try something new to save money. After investigating what others
      have done with their docks as an alternative to pulling them from the
      water, it was decided to leave them in the water, disconnect them from
      the land and float them securely tied off in the middle of the marina.
      After the docks were disconnected from the jetty, they were gently
      moved over to the Main floater and finger docks where they were all
      bolted together. Then the arms that hold the main floater in place were
      disconnected and removed. The entire assembly was then floated to
      the center of the marina where it was securely tied off using many
      lines. We wish to thank Craig and Kathy Good, Tim Feller, Ron
      Potter, Scott Pritchard, Denny Fitzpatrick, Mark Gorrell and Bob
      Bresky for battling the rain, gale force winds and occasional sunshine
      to get the docks in place for the winter. On that day in October, we
      were also able to get the summer furniture put away, the flower beds
      cleaned up and the pump house swept out and rearranged and the
      water lines shut off and blown out.
   11.Dumpster Diving: A special thanks to our President Scott Pritchard
      who continuously looks for ways to save the association money. He
      was able to extract from various dumpsters (in a less than
      presidential manner), the materials necessary to build the
     ―contraption‖ which we used to lift and secure the walkway ramps to
     the Jetty docks, when getting the marina ready for the winter.
  12.Hart Asphalt And The Road: At the trustees meeting on October
     9th, the board discussed the completed road project and a few
     concerns that we had regarding ―soft‖ spots. Hart Asphalt was
     contacted and they told us that the ―soft‖ spots would harden over
     time and that if there was any problem in the Spring, they would be
     out to address them at that time.
  13.Ohio Edison: Ohio Edison removed or trimmed selected trees on the
     east side of the park in order to clear utility lines from danger of
     damage by the trees. In addition, we have submitted a work order for
     Ohio Edison to move the sodium vapor light on the utility pole on
     the east side of the park to the utility pole on the west side and focus
     its beam on the marina to illuminate the marina at night. In its current
     position, the light is obscured by the trees and is not being used to its
     fullest potential.
  14.Wishing A Speedy Recovery to Bill Feller and Doris Potter: We
     would like to wish Bill Feller and Doris Potter a speedy recovery from
     their recent surgeries. Hope you are up and around quickly.
  15.Annual Meeting: Please reserve Saturday May 21, 2005 and plan on
     attending the annual Baywinds Meeting. Details of the time and place
     will be mailed out prior to the meeting. At this meeting, three trustees
     will need to be elected. The terms of Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and
     John Meyer will expire. If you are interested in running for an open
     trustee position, please contact one of the current trustees so that your
     name can be placed on the ballot.
  16.Looking Ahead: The board discussed proposed projects for next year
     which include the following: replace the rusted metal mailboxes at
     the front entrance with new plastic mailboxes; gut the pump house
     and move the bathroom and create a larger storage area. Any other
     suggestions or ideas? If so, contact any of your trustees.

Finally, all of the trustees would like to wish you and your family a
Wonderful and Blessed Holiday Season and a Healthy and Prosperous
New Year!
             BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                 (OCTOBER 2004 – DECEMBER 2004)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in July 2004. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees
– Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter, Jeff Schmitz, John Meyer or Bob Bresky. I can be reached
by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858.

1.Welcome To New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to offer a hearty
welcome to our new residents Mike and Rosemary Trimmer who purchased Bob and
Peggy Lacour‘s summer place and Tim and Kathy Richardson who purchased Fred and
Emma Luzius‘ summer place. We wish you a grand time at Baywinds and welcome you
into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2. Special Meeting To Approve The Road Project: A special meeting was held on
June 19, 2004 to vote on the road project. Ken Sanders from Hart Asphalt Inc. met with
residents to answer questions regarding grading of the road and driveways, and the chip
and seal project. The road project was approved by the membership. After the meeting,
Ken gave individual estimates for driveways to anyone that wanted their drives done.
Target date for the start of the project was to be July 19, 2004 depending on weather and
any unforeseen delays. At the time of this writing, the grading has been completed, but
the resurfacing has not. Ken reminded residents to be careful with bicycle and
motorcycle kick stands. They will go through the chip and seal.

3.You Are Getting MUCH BETTER!: Darlene Kolesar asked me to thank you for
your RSVP‘s for the fish fry and our Christmas in July Extravaganza. She had a 98%
RSVP rate. This makes it so much easier for her to plan the food and other things
necessary for a successful social event.

4.Thank You To Sandy Shores Partnership: The owners of the house at the front of
our road voluntarily chose to contribute to our road project. Our agreement with them
states that they are only responsible for improvements to the marina. We appreciate
Sandy Shores Partnership‘s contribution to the road resurfacing.

5. Brush & Branch Removal: Our lawn service provider – The Cutting Edge has
offered a special service to us at no cost – removal of tree trimmings or cut brush. He
will remove it the first Thursday of every month. If you have any brush or tree trimmings
tie them together in reasonably sized bundles and leave them in your driveway at the
appropriate time. Our lawn care this year hasn‘t been quite up to par with what it has
been in the past. Please be aware that this was due to health problems and the inability to
employ reliable help. The Cutting Edge is making every effort to improve.

6.Temporary Hold on Water and Electric Lines To The Docks: Because of
restrictions imposed by the building department for extending the water and electric lines
to the docks, the project will become more costly and probably prohibitive (at least for
this season) since we have the major road project in the works. As a result, this project
has been put on hold and will be discussed again at a later date. As a temporary
alternative, members who wish to wash their boats can use the fresh water spigots located
near the davit and the floating dock. Residents who dock their boats off the floating dock
got together and chipped in for a hose reel and hose for their use. Those who dock on the
davit side of the marina can simply connect their own hose to the fresh water spigot there.

7.Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t seen it yet, it can be found at www.baywinds.info The password to get into the
site is ―letmein‖ Please keep the password confidential so that we can keep the site a
secure as reasonably possible. Jim can post pictures on the website or other items of
interest. You can send pictures or items to him by e-mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or
―snail‖ mail him an actual photo or article and he will scan it and post it for you on our
website. His home address will be found on our Baywinds unit owners listing. You will
always find a copy of the current newsletter posted at the sight, plus other pertinent
information that you might wish to know about Baywinds.

8. Canopy Purchase: The trustees authorized the purchase of a canopy to be used
during social events. It was obtained by Jim & Darlene Kolesar for a ―good price‖ 
We used it for the first time at our Christmas In July fish fry. Thank you to Bill French,
Richard Kmetz and Jim Kolesar for ―engineering‖ the erection of the new canopy.

9.Christmas In July – The Social Event Of The Season: It goes without saying that
our Christmas in July social was, without a doubt, a fantastic success. Everyone was
encouraged to decorate their homes with Christmas lights. Baywinds was ablaze with
color and the holiday spirit. The fish fry was a total success with over 60 people
attending. Even ―Santa‖ – with the help of Bill Feller, made an appearance! Such and
undertaking can only be as successful as the fine people who volunteered their time and
talents to make it a success. We should all thank Bill and Sue Beach for their donation of
over sixty pounds of Perch; John and Judy Keiser , Kathy and Craig Good and Nancy and
Bob Lonsinger for also donating fish; Sue Beach, Sue French, Carole Kmetz and Darlene
Kolesar for breading it all; Sue Beach for frying all the fish; Darlene and Jim Kolesar,
Bill and Sue French and Jeff Schmitz for all their help with the french fries and ―hotdogs‖
for those that didn‘t want fish. This was a huge undertaking and was successful because
of all the fine people who pitched in to help. Thank you one and all!
10. Thank You!!!!! Many people throughout the year have taken it upon themselves to
do little jobs in the park or provide things for the park that benefit us all. Thank you so
much to all of you who have done so. The annual park cleanup on May 22, 2004 brought
out an army of helpers that accomplished a large amount of work in a very short period of
time. The fruits of their labors can be seen as we proudly look at the beauty of our park.
As summer approached many others helped maintain the park. I will attempt to list some
of the people and their contributions that I know of. Please forgive me if you did
something for us all and I missed acknowledging your contribution. It is always a risk to
do this. In any event, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE HELPED MAKE
BAYWINDS A NICE PLACE TO WEEKEND, VACATION OR LIVE ! A ―tip of
the hat‖ goes to: Jeff Schmitz for ―weed wacking‖ the weeds in the marina the 4th of July
weekend and Richard Kmetz for spraying them; Richard & Carole Kmetz and Scott
Pritchard & Denny Fitzpatrick for trimming the bushes and trees near the fence; Nancy
Lonsinger for helping keep the flower beds around lot 25 looking nice; John and Judy
Keiser for donating even more plantings to beautify the park; Jeff and Barb Schmitz for
creating the flower bed at the base of the flag pole; Bob Bresky & Mark Gorrell for
donating a fax machine/copier to the association – it is set up at Scott‘s place. If you
need to send or receive a fax or make a copy of something – see Scott; Richard Kmetz
and Denny Fitzpatrick for painting the bottoms of the docks before they went into the
water this spring; Darlene and Jim Kolesar for chairing the social events; Jim Luteran for
putting together the Baywinds website and maintaining it; Richard & Carole Kmetz for
planting the additional plants that John and Judy Keiser donated to the park and for
keeping the flower beds clean and deadheading the flowers; Scott Pritchard and Richard
Kmetz for the many hours expended in dealing with the business of Baywinds. Thank
you one and all!

11. Private Security Light: The trustees discussed moving our private security light
from the utility pole on the east side of our property to the utility pole on the west side
our property and focusing the light on the marina. This would illuminate the marina at
night, making better use of the light. In its current position, most of the light it puts out is
blocked by the trees. Ohio Edison has been contacted and will move the light for us
according to their schedule.

12. Winter Is On Its Way: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave water on during
the winter months, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
ARE WRAPPED WITH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or so. If
your heat tape is that old, you may want to have it checked out to make sure that it is in
working order.

13. Baywinds Sign: In the previous newsletter, we reported that our sign at the entrance
to the park on Bayshore Road might be encroaching on our neighbor‘s property. They
informed us that they may want to erect a fence on the property line. Bill Feller and
Richard Kmetz searched out the survey pins and found that the sign is clearly on our
property, but the surrounding gardens are not. We probably will need to move (remove)
the garden around the sign in the Spring.
14. Removal Of Boats: Boats will need to be removed from the marina so that the docks
can be secured for the winter by NO LATER THAN SUNDAY OCTOBER 17th. If you
need to leave your boat in longer than that, see Scott so that special arrangements can be
made for you.



15. Dilemma, Dilemma, Dilemma: The Dilemma is what to do with the docks this
winter. Mike Belkhe has removed the docks for us for the last several years at a cost of
$450, but will not be able to do it anymore. (Prior to that, we paid $1200). It is the
opinion of the people who have worked on the docks for us (Mike Belkhe, Molnar, and
LakeCraft,) that we are doing more damage to the dock bottoms by removing them each
year than we would if we would just leave them in the water for the winter. All three
have proposed that we disconnect the docks from the jetty, and float the jetty docks over
to the floating finger docks. They would then be nestled in between the finger docks and
secured as a unit. The poles that hold the floater would then be disconnected, and all the
docks floated to the center of the marina where they would be tied off. This would allow
them to float freely with the ice -- thus eliminating our usual problems with ice and the
docks. The board discussed this at its last meeting on August 28, 2004 and was not in
unanimous agreement. The opinion was four to one in favor of floating the docks in the
water for the winter. If you have strong feelings regarding this issue or would like more
information, please call or see Scott. NO DECISION HAS BEEN MADE! We would
like more input from you. The Clam Bake is being held on September 18th and an
INFORMAL DISCUSSION can be had at that time if you should so desire. The decision
will then be made by the board to either remove or float the docks based on feedback that
we receive from you. PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOUR OPINIONS ARE ON
THIS MATTER.


16.Clam Bake: Darlene and Jim Kolesar are busy planning our annual clam bake which
is scheduled to take place on Saturday September 18, 2004 at 4:00 p.m. The cost is
$14.50/clam bake; $5.75/extra dozen clams and for those that don‘t want clams,
$9.00/chicken bake. The cost includes a dozen clams, ½ chicken, corn, sweet potato,
clam chowder and rolls. Even side of the street is to bring a small dessert and the odd
side of the street is to bring a small hors d‘oeuvere. The clam bake is not just for
Baywinds residents. You are welcome to invite friends as well. You are reminded that
you MUST ORDER and PAY IN FULL by September 8th to Darlene at lot #9 or mail a
check to: Darlene Kolesar, 6875 Paula Drive, Middleburg Hts., Ohio 44130. NO
ORDERS CAN BE ACCEPTED AFTER SEPTEMBER 8, 2004.

17. Got Gas???: Scott would like to thank all of the people who came out to support
him as he and his guests were towed into safe harbor by jet ski after he ran of out gas just
off Dempsey‘s near Johnson‘s Island. He said it touched his heart to know that so many
people were concerned about his safety – not to mention all the ―hootnin & hollerin‖ that
took place as he was towed into our marina. 
                          Baywinds Trustees Meeting Minutes
                                Saturday June 5, 2004

Present: Scott Pritchard, Jeff Schmitz and Bob Bresky
Absent: Ron Potter, John Meyer

The meeting convened at 9:30am and adjourned at 11:05am.

   8. Road Resurfacing: Ken Sanders of Hart Asphalt has agreed to attend the special
       membership meeting that will be held to approve the final plans for the road
       resurfacing. The purpose of his attendance at the meeting is to answer any
       questions the members may have and also to give individual estimates for
       driveways for anyone contemplating having their driveway paved at the time that
       the road is resurfaced. The date of the special meeting was set for Saturday June
       19, 2004 at 9:30AM at Baywinds. A letter will be sent out to the membership as
       soon as possible to notify them of the meeting and the approximate cost to them
       for their share of the road resurfacing. The board estimated that the approximate
       cost to each homeowner will be about $450. The board also decided to earmark
       $3000 of our $5,000 reserve account to help defray the cost of the road
       resurfacing. The road will be resurfaced to a width of 14ft. – 16 ft.
   9. Preliminary Work: Preliminary work that must be done before the road can be
       resurfaced is the replacement of three crocks and the installation of the connecting
       water lines. The three crocks that must be done now are at Zimmerman‘s – crock
       and line, Lonsinger‘s - crock only and Gerber‘s - crock and line. Jack‘s
       Excavating will do the work at a cost of $450 for each crock and $250 for the
       connecting water line. The association is responsible for the crocks, but the
       individual homeowner is responsible for the connecting line. In addition, we must
       install a crock and cover at Beach‘s for the two shut off valves for each side of the
       street. All of this work must be done before the resurfacing can take place. Jack
       of Jack‘s excavating indicated that he was about two weeks behind at this time,
       but promised to have our work completed before the fourth of July. That would
       put our resurfacing project completion time at about mid July.
   10. Letter to Chris Garceau: It was brought to the board‘s attention that Chris may
       be shutting off the water in the winter to individual homes improperly thus putting
       the water system in jeopardy of freezing. The board will discuss this further at
       it‘s next meeting and draft a letter to Chris indicating how it expects the water to
       each home to be shut off and notifying Chris that he would be held liable if it was
       not done in the proper manner.
11. Pump House Painting: Scott will pressure wash the pump house and we will
    try to form a painting party to repaint it in the near future. We are hoping that we
    can get some volunteers to help with the project. It will be painted with a white
    masonry paint and blue trim paint.
12. Temporary Hold on Water and Electric Lines To The Docks: Because of the
    restrictions imposed by the building department for extending the water and
    electric lines to the docks, the project will become more costly and probably
    prohibitive (at least for this season) since we have the major road project in the
    works. As a result, this project has been place on hold and will be discussed at a
    later date. As a temporary alternative, members who wish to wash their boats,
    can use the fresh water spigots located near the davit and near the floating dock.
    Simply, connect your own hose to these and run it out to your boat.
13. Christmas In July! Scott will check with Darlene and Jim Kolesar about a
    Christmas in July event. Details will be available later.
14. Posting Of The Newsletter And Minutes: It was suggested that the minutes of
    the trustees meeting also be posted on the bulletin board and website in the same
    manner that the Baywinds Newsletter is posted.
                     BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER


                    (JULY 2004 – SEPTEMBER 2004)

Hello All! Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in April, 2004. As always, if there are any questions, fell free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.

1.Welcome to New Residents: Everyone at Baywinds would like to offer a hearty
welcome to our new residents Todd and Kristin Zimmerman and Scott and Shari Aliff.
They purchased Joe Hoffman‘s summer place. We wish you a grand time at Baywinds
and welcome you into our ―Baywinds Family‖.

2. New Trustees Elected: At the annual meeting held on May 22, 2004, Richard Kmetz
declined to run for another term as trustee. Jeff Schmitz volunteered to serve on the
board. By acclamation, Jeff Schmitz and Bob Bresky were elected to the board for a two
year term. At the executive session held at the conclusion of the meeting, I agreed to stay
on as Treasurer, Scott agreed to remain as President and Doris Potter agreed to stay on as
Secretary.

3. Gratitude and Much Appreciation To Richard Kmetz: Many members expressed
their gratitude and appreciation for all of the time and hard work Richard has put in for
the benefit of all Baywinds residents. He has much knowledge of the history of the park
and has been a priceless asset. He has single handedly watched over many major projects
in the park to make sure that they came to a successful conclusion. Fortunately for us, he
has agreed to continue to help in anyway that he can, but prefers to let some ―new talent‖
serve on the board. In recognition of all of Richard‘s hard work over many years, the
members present at the annual meeting voted Richard ―Trustee Emeritus”.

4.Thank You: Thank you to Denny Fitzpatrick and Richard Kmetz for painting the
bottoms of the docks before they went back into the water. Also, thank you to Darlene
and Jim Kolesar for continuing to chair our social events. They could always use some
help, so if you are so inclined, please see Darlene and Jim to offer your talents. Darlene
has asked that you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure that you
RSVP for all the social events. It is very difficult for Darlene to know how many to
plan for unless she had an accurate count of those who will be attending. You can RSVP
to Jim and Darlene by calling 216 – 362 – 6123 or by e-mail at jimpp22171@aol.com
Thank you for being considerate.

5. More Thank Yous: The annual Park Clean Up was held at 1 PM on Saturday May 22
after the annual meeting. It was refreshing to see such a large turn out and to see just
how much work can be accomplished in such a short period of time by all of us working
together. Thank you to all who participated. Everyone owns a piece of this park and
shares some responsibility in maintaining it. Thank you to John and Judy Keiser for
donating the many flats of flowers that were planted to beautify the common areas.
6.We Passed With Flying Colors: We received our annual inspection report from the
Health Department of Ottowa County. They found absolutely no violations in the Marina
or Park! Our park continues to be outstanding in the way that it is maintained and
managed!

7. Baywinds Sign: Our sign at the entrance to the park off Bayshore Road is located
directly on the property line. The surrounding landscaping encroaches on the new
owners property west of the sign. They have informed us that they may want to erect a
fence along the property line. That being the case, it may be necessary for us to move our
sign in the near future. Please be aware, that Baywinds isn‘t moving – just the sign. ()

8. Annual Street Sale: Due to lack of interest this year, the annual yard sale will not be
held. This gives you an extra year to gather your treasures together. We will try again
next year.

9. Lot #25 Parking : Everyone is reminded that lot number 25 is not be used for storage
of boats or trailers during the summer. It is ok to park cars or trailers TEMPORARILY
over the weekend on the lot, but they must be removed before you leave. You are also
reminded that you cannot store your boat on your property.

10. Parking Of Cars And Golf Carts At The Marina: Please remember not to park
cars or golf carts at the marina in any way that they would block clear and easy access to
the launch ramp. If you park your car at the marina, please park it adjacent to and near
the pump house. Golf carts should be parked in the Grassy area near lot #23 (John
Meyer). Because of emergency access needs, please DO NOT PARK GOLF CARTS
ON THE JETTY!!!! It is tempting to want to park a golf cart near your boat dock, but
the Jetty must be kept free and clear. Please abide by this request.

11. Website: Thank you to Jim Luteran who continues to maintain our website. If you
haven‘t visited it yet, it can be found at www.baywnds.info. And the password to get into
the site is “letmein”. Please keep the password confidential so that we can keep the
sight as secure as reasonably possible. Jim has asked that I let you know that he can post
pictures on the website or other items of interest. You can send the pictures to him by e-
mail at jluteran@WVIZ.org or ―snail‖ mail him an actual photo and he will scan it and
place it on the website. Jim‘s home address will be found on our Bawyinds unit owners
listing. Since this newsletter will be posted on the website for the ―whole world to see,‖ I
don‘t want to publish Jim‘s home address in this newsletter. He suggested that those
people that have homes for sale () might want to take advantage of this. You will
always find a copy of the current newsletter posted at the sight, plus other pertinent
information that you might wish to know about Baywinds.

12. Donation To Lakeside Fire Department: In their executive session, the board
voted to again send a $20.00 donation to the Lakeside Fire Department.

13. Road Project: Actually after only a short discussion at the annual meeting on May
22, 2004, the membership came to the conclusion that we really needed to do something
with our road ASAP. The board has already obtained estimates for asphalt as well as
chip and seal. After some discussion, it was determined that the membership was more
in favor of Chip and Seal over Asphalt. The cost to Chip and Seal the road from
Bayshore Road all the way to the Marina including the turn-around area was
approximately $10,000 . The cost of asphalt was a little more than double that. The
board was directed to look into this further and make arrangements for this to be done as
soon as possible. We will use a portion of our ―reserve account‖ to defray the cost of the
road project for all unit owners. In addition, each owner will have the opportunity to
have their driveway chip and sealed at the same time that the road is being paved. Cost
to individual owners for their driveways will be in the neighborhood of $.75 to $1.25 per
square foot of driveway paved. To find out your approximate cost, simply measure the
length and width of your driveway in feet, and multiply these two numbers together.
This will give you the square footage of your driveway. Next multiply that number by
$1.00. The result will be the approximate cost to pave your driveway. The more people
who decide to pave their drives, the lower the price per square foot. The board will be in
touch with everyone- perhaps by calling a special meeting- as soon as all the details are
worked out.

         BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                          (April 2004 – June 2004)
Hello All – Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter
in December, 2003. As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the
trustees. I can be reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.

1.Condolences to Ron & Doris Potter: It is with much sadness that we must report that
some members of our Baywinds family have lost loved ones since the last newsletter.
Doris Potter‘s father passed way on January 7, 2004. All of us at Baywinds extend our
heartfelt sympathies to Doris & Ron and to their families.

2.Winter Damage: The poles that secure the floating dock were damaged this winter.
One of the brackets anchoring the poles snapped and another pole was bent. Scott was
able to see for himself what caused this and what role the ice played in it. He met with
Sam from LakeCraft Corporation to devise a repair and solution so that this doesn‘t
happen again. The damage will be repaired ASAP.

3.Lot 25 Trailer Parking: As per BOARD OF HEALTH REGULATIONS , you are
reminded that lot 25 is NOT to be used for the summer storage of boat trailers. This lot
is only to be used for over flow parking of guest cars and the occasional TEMPORARY
parking of a trailer (such as over the weekend.) You also may NOT store trailers on your
own lot.

4.Annual Meeting: Please reserve the date of May 22, 2004 for our annual meeting to
be held at the Danbury Township Hall. More details will be sent to you as the date
approaches. At this meeting, you will be asked to elect two trustees. The terms of
Richard Kmetz and Bob Bresky will come to an end. If you would be interested in
serving as a trustee for a two year term, please contact one of the current trustees so that
your name can be placed on the ballot.

5.Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled trustees meeting will be held in March 2004.
I‘m sure all of you are getting spring fever and can‘t wait for all the snow, cold and ice to
disappear for good. It will be great to see all of you again and get started on another fun
summer at Baywinds. Until then, take care.




.

                              (January 2004 – March 2004)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in October.
As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 633 – 8858.


    7. All ready for Winter: The new fence and sprinkler system are all installed and
        the sprinkler system has been winterized. Electric and water lines have been
        installed to the edge of the shore and hopefully, the project to extend electric and
        water to the docks will be completed next year. All the dead and diseased trees
        have been removed and the stumps ground. Next year, plans are to put a flower
        garden along the new fence. This Fall, Scott was able to purchase some
        shrubbery at Lowes for 75% off. He bought several large arborvitaes and several
        grasses. They have already been planted along the new fence and should give us
        a head start in the Spring.
    8. Trustees Meeting: At the trustees meeting held on October 18, 2003 the
        proposed budget for 2004 was approved. Total Income expected is $24, 120 and
        total budgeted is $24, 120. Quarterly assessments will remain the same for 2004
        at $256.60 per quarter.
    9. Great Job “Cutting Edge”: The trustees discussed and approved giving a bonus
        of $100 to our lawn maintenance company for the special care and good work
        they did for us this past summer. The bonus will be mailed in a thank you card
        around the Holiday season.
    10. Did you know?: For those of you without weekly trash pick up, it is possible to
        buy prepaid trash bags at Mutach‘s Market in Marblehead, and also at IGA. The
        cost of the bags are about $1.50 each and will be picked up by BFI trash service
        as they come down our street to pick up trash for regular customers. A note to all
        who do leave trash for pick up – please put the trash bags in GARBAGE CANS.
        Animals have been getting into some of the unattended bags and garbage has been
        blown all over the park.
    11. Project for next year: The trustees are thinking about possibly moving the
        current sink and commode in the pump house to one of the shower stalls that we
        currently use for storage of picnic tables. That would free up a larger area for
        storage where we currently have the toilet and sink. The estimated cost of this
        project would be about $300 - $400.
   12. Next Trustees Meeting: The next scheduled meeting of the trustees will be held
       in March 2004. As always, we will be thinking ahead to the Spring Annual
       Meeting and would like to encourage anyone who would like to run for a position
       on the board to submit their name to any of the trustees so that your name can be
       included on the ballot.

Finally, your trustees would like to wish you all a Wonderful and Blessed Holiday
Season and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year! Stay warm during the winter and
think thoughts of Spring! See you all again next year!
                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                        OCTOBER 2003 – DECEMBER 2003

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in June. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330- 633- 8858.

   11. Baywinds Website: Jim Luteran has used his skills to create a website for us.
       We have been posting the trustees meeting minutes and the quarterly newsletter
       on the website for your information. The existence of the website was mentioned
       in a previous newsletter. This is just a reminder that it can be found at
       www.baywinds.info and the password is “letmein” . Please keep the password
       confidential to keep the website as secure as possible.
   12. Boats Out of the Marina: Please try to have your boat out of the marina by
       October 19th so that the docks can be removed. If you need to leave your boat in
       longer and your dock is on the jetty side, please move it to any of the empty docks
       on the main floater which will not be coming out of the water. If there are any
       questions, please call Scott.
   13. Tree Planting: Hopefully by the time this newsletter gets in your hands, we will
       have planted another tree in the park as a living memorial to Barb Schmitz‘s
       mother who passed away earlier this summer. We would like to develop a
       landscaping plan for future plantings and would like a committee to develop a
       master plan. Please contact your trustees if you would be willing to do this.
   14. Ramp: We had the black top approach to the ramp sealed for the winter. It was
       done at a cost of $75 by a company who just happened to be doing work at
       Commadore Bay. Their estimate was less expensive than what we could have
       done it ourselves.
   15. Tree Removal: By now you should have noticed that several trees were removed
       from the park and others were trimmed. There was significant damage from the
       barrage of storms this summer making it necessary to have some trees trimmed of
       dead branches and others totally taken down because they were either dead or
       rotting in the middle posing a danger to anyone near them. Two trees were
       removed near Lonsinger‘s and the willow tree by the ramp was removed as well.
       Total cost of the service was about $1400 including stump grinding.
   16. Hand Rails: Lake Craft installed handrails on the docks along the jetty. Eight
       handrails were installed at a cost of $175 each. This hopefully will make it safer
       for those with docks along the Jetty and help prevent anyone from slipping and
       falling.
   17. Crock Replacement: The trustees decided to put on hold the project of replacing
       the crocks and water lines on lots 1,2 and 3 this year. We will postpone this until
       next year. Jack‘s excavating will be doing the work since he is the most familiar
       with our water lines. The estimated cost is about $500 - $600 per crock.
       Homeowners on those lots will share a small cost of part of the project for the
       water line connection to their unit.
18. Heat Tape: Here is your yearly reminder: If you leave your water on during the
    winter months, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL EXPOSED PIPES
    ARE WRAPPED WITH HEAT TAPE. Heat tape only lasts about five years or
    so. If your heat tape is that old, you may want to have it checked out to make
    sure that it is in working order.
19. Marina/Commons Area Improvements: On Saturday August 23rd, a group of
    volunteers got together and installed a split rail fence along the east property line.
    Richard Kmetz had removed the old snow fencing, cleared up all brush and had
    the site ready for construction of the fence. While we had the trencher, we also
    trenched for electrical lines and for water lines. The fence went up fast, and the
    rest of the day was spent laying water lines for an irrigation/sprinkler system and
    electric and water lines to carry electricity and fresh water to the docks. We will
    use one of our old bladder tanks and well pump to pump water out of the marina
    for the sprinkler system. Fresh water will be provided to the docks along with
    electricity. We will finish this project next year by alternating fresh water and
    electrical connections to every other dock. Time only allowed for installation of
    the electric lines and water lines to shore this year. Many thanks to all who
    helped with this project: Richard and Carole Kmetz, Scott and Denny, Fred
    Luzius , Mark Gorrell and me (grin).
20. Thank You!!!!!!!! Many people have taken it upon themselves to do little jobs in
    the park that benefit us all. Thank you so much for all of you that have done so. I
    will attempt to list a few people and their contributions that I know of. Please
    forgive me if you did something in the park that benefits us all and I missed you.
    In any event, THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED MAKE BAYWIDS
    A NICE PLACE TO WEEKEND, VACATION OR LIVE. A ―tip of the hat‖
    goes to :Darlene and Jim Kolesar and Emma Luzius for their hard work on
    socials and keeping our gambling skills honed with CLR; John and Judy
    Kaieser for donating flowers to beautify the park again this year; Jim and
    Darlene, Craig and Kathy Good, Tim Feller, Scott and Denny for pulling
    weeds in the marina. Richard Kmetz and Scott Pritchard for the many hours
    expended in dealing with all the business of Baywinds and for their handy work in
    all the ―projects‖ that we have taken on this year. Coming from the ―treasurer‖
    these guys saved us a lot of money by encouraging ―do it yourself‖ projects to
    make the park a nicer place.
                        Minutes of Baywinds Trustees Meeting
                           Saturday July 26, 2003 9 A.M.


Present at the meeting: Scott Pritchard, Richard Kmetz, John Meyer, Bob Bresky
Unable to attend: Ron and Doris Potter

In this meeting, the board discussed and/or approved the following:

   12. Annual donation to the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Department of $20.00
   13. We have started a plan to plant memorial trees in the park in memory of loved
       ones who have passed on. We have planted a tree in memory of Doris Potter‘s
       mother, and will be planting another tree in memory of Barb Schmitz‘s mother.
       We felt that it would be wise to develop a landscaping plan for the park indicating
       where future trees should be planted as well as the type of trees. Some thoughts
       mentioned were lining the drive with trees as we come into the park from
       Bayshore Rd. We would like to see a ―grounds committee‖ established to draw
       up a master plan than can be followed in the future. We are looking for
       volunteers who would do this for the park.
   14. There was significant tree damage with the barrage of storms that passed through
       the park in the last several weeks. It is necessary to have some limbs trimmed out
       of some trees and to have some trees removed altogether. Estimates were
       obtained for the following work: remove two willows by Lonsingers – there is
       only one living section on the trees. Most of both trees are dead and pose a
       danger at the entrance to the park. To remove both trees is $700. The Hickory
       tree by Ralph Meyers needs to have some dead wood at the top removed. $100
       The Mulberry tree next to the pump house is dead and needs to be removed. $25.
       The Willow tree next to the ramp is rotted in the middle and the only part of the
       tree that is still living is the outside part. We have spent a lot of money on this tree
       in the past and spending more in the future is not justified. Since the tree is in a
       weakened state, the board decided to have it removed as well to prevent damage
       to the new ramp if it should be blown down. Cost for this tree is $350. We would
       have and additional charge of $50 per stump to have them ground. The board
       decided to have three stumps ground at a cost of $150. Total cost will be about
       $1400. We will proceed with the tree removal as soon as possible.
   15. We planned to pull weeds along the Jetty on Sunday July 27th and were going to
       ask for volunteers to do this. However, Darlene and Jim Kolesar took it upon
       themselves to complete this task on Saturday for us. Thank you to Darlene and
       Jim and to anyone who may have helped them.
   16. The need to seal the blacktop at the top of the ramp was discussed. The board
       approved this item and planned on purchasing about 10 gallons of sealer and the
       tools necessary to apply the sealer. However, Commodore Bay was having some
       sealing work done as the trustees meeting was taking place. We discovered this,
       and asked for an estimate. The estimate came in at only $75. The company was
       given approval by board members and sealed it that same morning. They did a
       fine job.
   17. A review of the work done by Lake Craft in constructing the new hand-rails for
       the docks received a thumbs up. Eight hand-rails were installed at a cost of $175
       each.
   18. Richard Kmetz was thanked for his work in clearing the old snow fence from the
       east side of our property and getting rid of brush and debris. Richard took it upon
       himself to do this for us in preparation for installation of the new split rail fence
       along the east property line. The new fence will run from the end of the pump
       house to the marina. A total length of 110 feet. Total estimated cost will be $350
       for the materials plus rental of a trencher to do the work. At the time of the fence
       installation, we will run a water line and electric line from the marina to the pump
       house. We will use one of the old bladder tanks and the water pump from the old
       well to pump water from the marina and use it to water the grass and trees in the
       common area at the marina. It is estimated that we will need about 4 or 5
       sprinkler heads to do this. Again, volunteers will be asked to give up some time
       for this project.
   19. We need to replace the line on the flagpole and maybe the light at the top. The
       light apparently was blown away in one of the storms. Richard said he thought
       that he had some line. He will just need some help taking the flagpole down and
       putting it back up again after the line is replaced.
   20. Since the docks were painted this spring, we need to stencil on the numbers for
       each dock again. Richard has stencils at home and will bring them to Baywinds
       to use on the docks.
   21. The trustees decided to put on hold the project of replacing the crocks and water
       lines on lots 1,2 and 3 this year. We will postpone this until next year. Jack‘s
       Excavating will be doing the work, since he is most familiar with our water lines.
       Estimated cost was about $500 - $600 per crock. Homeowners on those lots will
       share a small cost of part of the project for the water line connection to their unit.
   22. The next trustee meeting will be held in October.


The meeting was adjourned at 10:20 A.M.


       Respectfully submitted,


                      Bob Bresky
                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                             (JULY – SEPTEMBER 2003)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in April. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858.


   11. Yearly Meeting: The yearly meeting was held at the Danbury Township Hall on
       Saturday May 17th at 10:00 am. At this meeting, Scott Pritchard, Ron Potter and
       John Meyer were reelected as trustees by acclamation.

   12. Lawn Service: Majestic Landscaping which was cutting our grass, split their
       partnership and one of the partners is now cutting our grass. The new name of
       the company is The Cutting Edge. If you are having any particular problems,
       contact the company or Northcoast Property Management Co.

   13. New e – mail Address: Northcoast Property Management Co. is changing their
       e-mail address. The new address is : admin@ncpmgt.com Their office is located
       at 129 Madison Street, 1B Port Clinton, Ohio 43452 Mailing address is P.O.
       Box 235 Port Clinton, Ohio 43452 Office phone number is 419 – 734- 6139 or
       Toll Free 877 – 734 – 6139 Fax number is 419 – 734 – 1114 They also have an
       after hours EMERGENCY number : 1 – 800 – 206 – 0328

   14. Lot 25 Trailer Parking: Please be aware that lot 25 is not to be used for summer
       parking of boat trailers. It is only to be used for the temporary parking of trailers
       (such as over the weekend) or guest cars. Many places in the area can provide
       you with a place to store your trailer over the summer for a nominal fee.

   15. Annual Yard Sale: Please mark your calendars for Saturday, July 19, 2003.
       This is the date of our annual yard sale. Start collecting your treasures now!

   16. Upcoming Projects: Lakecraft Corporation has been contacted to fabricate hand
       rails for our docks. They are very slippery especially when the docks are wet.
       Since we have been sited in the past for not having them, the Board thought it
       would be prudent to address this issue as soon as possible. They will be installed
       as soon as they have been fabricated. We will also continue with our on-going
       scheduled crock replacement. We will try to replace three of them this summer.
       The old snow fence on the East side of the property by the pump house needs to
       be removed and replaced with a split rail fence. However, there is a good deal of
       poison ivy in the area and that needs too be removed/killed before any work can
       be done there. And finally, the pump house needs to be repainted. If you could
       help with any of these projects, it would greatly be appreciated. Please see one of
       the trustees to let them know that you would be willing to help.
17. Five Mile Per Hour Speed Limit: Please observe the 5mph speed limit as you
    drive down our road. It is for the safety of all residents and guests. Also, please
    advise your guests of the speed limit in the park.

18. Park Clean Up: Thank you to all of the folks that helped with the park clean up
    Saturday afternoon May 17th. We were able to get a lot of work accomplished in
    a very short period of time. It would not have been possible without all the help
    we received.

19. Baywinds Roster: A new Baywinds owner roster should be enclosed with your
    quarterly statement in June. The one that you received with your annual meeting
    packet had some incorrect phone numbers and addresses. Corrections were made
    at the annual meeting. Mattie Wallace from Northcoast Property Management
    Company will make the corrections and enclose the new roster with the June
    quarterly statements. Please destroy the old roster.

20. Thank You: A big thank you to Darlene and Jim Kolesar for hosting the burger
    and hot dog picnic in the park on Saturday May 17th. The food and fellowship
    were great. A lot of work goes into planning and putting these affairs together.
    We really appreciate all that Jim and Darlene do for us.
                    BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                             (January 2003 – March 2003)

Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in October.
As always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-633-8858 (New Phone Number).


   1. Andy Cifranic: It is with much sadness that we must report the passing of Andy
      Cifranic on Saturday November 16, 2002. Andy died of complications from
      throat cancer at the Cleveland Clinic two days before his 72nd birthday. Andy was
      quite an accomplished photojournalist working for The Cleveland Plain Dealer
      for many years. He won numerous awards for his work. The Plain Dealer ran a
      very nice article about Andy in the paper on November 19th. I printed it from
      their web site and have copies if anyone would like one. We will certainly miss
      Andy. All of us at Baywinds extend our deepest sympathies to the family.

   2. Key Bank Account Closed: We have closed our account with the Key Bank and
      moved our checking account to The National Bank of Oak Harbor. It seems Key
      Bank kept assessing us for service charges that continued to get out of hand. In
      August of this year, we wrote just eight checks and paid thirteen dollars in service
      charges. These charges were adding up to become a significant amount and were
      not offset by any advantages or services that Key Bank was providing. The
      National Bank of Oak Harbor in an effort to obtain our business, agreed to cut in
      half the initial cost of $104 to set up a new account with them. Their charge of
      $52 included our first batch of checks, deposit slips and endorsement stamp. We
      should save a significant amount in service charges paid my making this move.
      We still have a Money Market Account with First Federal Savings where we
      deposit our ―reserves‖ money.

   3.    2003 Budget Approved: The trustees at their meeting on Saturday October 12,
        2002 approved the 2003 budget with no new increases in assessments.

   4. Water Line Replacement: The board approved replacing the old water lines that
      run behind lots 1,2 and 3 with a new line that will run in front of these properties.
      New crocks will also be installed. The old lines run too close to the surface. The
      work was to have already been done by Matt Molnar, however, because of a snag
      it is now postponed until the spring.

   5. Bladder Tanks Sold: Two of the three bladder tanks that we had in the pump
      house were sold for $75 each. We kept one of the tanks in case we ever decide to
      irrigate the lawn in the commons area with bay water from the marina.
                         BAYWINDS QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER

                               (October 2002 – December 2002)



     Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in June. As
     always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
     reached by e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330 – 753-1785. (This phone number
     will be changed at the end of October – we are moving  )


        1. Baywinds Website: Jim Luteran has used his skills to create a website for us:
           www.baywinds.info . Currently posted on the website are the Revised Code of
           Regulations, the current newsletter, photos of the marina work that we had done
           this past spring and a link to send e-mail to the trustees via Jim. Some individuals
           have expressed an interest in having financial information posted here and
           eventually a question and answer forum. After talking with Jim Luteran, all these
           things are possible but will take time to set up. One factor that we need to
           address is security. Jim has recently created a secured section on the website that
           is accessible by password only. This will prevent just anyone from accessing
           information that only Baywinds residents should have. To enter the secured
           areas, please use the password “letmein”. Please keep the password confidential
           to keep our website as secure as possible.
        2. Welcome: Welcome to the new folks on the block! A friendly welcome is
           extended to Craig and Kathy Good, the new owners of unit number ten. We all
           hope your experience at Baywinds is a happy one. Please stop by and introduce
           yourself to them when you get the time and make them feel welcome.
        3. A Request from Nancy Lonsinger: When parking trailers/boats etc. on the
           over flow lot by the fence, please leave enough room so that Nancy can more
           easily tend to the plantings and flowers in that area. Nancy has taken it upon
           herself to keep things watered for us near the fence. Many thanks Nancy for
           doing this!
        4. This and That : The following are some items discussed at the trustees meeting
           held on July 27, 2002.
               a. We purchased a total of four collapsible picnic tables for use at our social
                   events. They were used for the first time at our ice cream social on
                   August 17th. The tables are stored in the pump house and can be used by
                   any association member. Please see Scott or any of the trustees for a key.
                   Just be sure to return the tables and lock them back up when you are
                   finished using them.
               b. Bids were obtained to replace water lines and crocks on lots 1 and 3 while
                   lot 2 needs only a replacement crock. The association will pay the cost of
                   this work, except the individual homeowner will be responsible for the
                   connection of the line from the crock to their unit at an approximate cost
8.                 of $250.
                           Baywinds Quarterly Newsletter

                             (July2002 – September 2002)


Here are the latest updates on Baywinds happenings since the last newsletter in April. As
always, if there are any questions, feel free to contact any of the trustees. I can be
reached via e-mail at rbresky@neo.rr.com or at 330-753-1785.


   1. Memorial Day Weekend Activties: Saturday May 25, 2002 was devoted to the
      annual meeting held at the Danbury Township Hall at 10 a.m. Trustees reelected
      for another two year term were Richard Kmetz and Bob Bresky. After the
      meeting, the trustees met to elect officers. Officers will remain the same as last
      year. Scott Pritchard – President, Richard Kmetz – Vice President, Bob Bresky –
      Treasurer, Ron Potter and John Meyer continue as trustees and Doris Potter will
      continue as Secretary. Copies of the By Laws and the revised Rules and
      Regulations for Baywinds were printed by Jim Kolesar at no cost to us. These
      were distributed at the annual meeting. If you didn‘t get your copy, please see
      Scott to get one. Remember to destroy any old copies that you may have because
      changes have been made. At the meeting some discussion was taken as to what to
      do with the road. There was no clear consensus as to what residents would like to
      do. The board will continue to discuss this at a later date. To give you some idea
      as to cost – Mat Molenar (who did our marina) gave us an estimate for blacktop
      from Bayshore Rd. to the marina, including grading the road to correct drainage
      problems and also lowering the manholes for a cost of $21,000. Bergman gave
      us an estimate of $26,975 for black top but didn‘t address the drainage problems
      or lowering of the manholes. The Chip and Seal estimate from Bergman was
      $12,000 - $13,000. Bergman also gave residents the option of having their
      driveway blacktopped at a cost of $1.75 per square foot—this would have to be
      done at the same time as the road. There was also a request by Jeff Schmitz that
      the board consider planting some trees in the commons area. The picnic
      scheduled for Saturday evening was rained out and postponed until Sunday
      evening. It was a beautiful day and the picnic was well attended. We had nearly
      60 people. All seemed to have a nice time. Thanks to Darlene and Jim Kolesar
      for organizing the picnic and also to all who helped them.

   2. Final Cost Of The Marina: The final cost of the marina project was $34,346.28.
      Average depth in the marina is now about seven feet, and all rocks have been
      removed. The board is considering putting a small pad of concrete at the top of
      the marina to finish it off and perhaps provide better traction for anyone with
      front wheel drive vehicles as they attempt to pull out of the ramp. This we will do
      ourselves and will need some volunteers to help with the project. Please set aside
      a few hours if you can to help us. Let one of the trustees know if you can help.
      Since the marina project came in under budget (we budgeted $36,600 and the
      final cost was $34,346.28), the trustees are considering some of the following
    improvements to the marina with the balance of the money—running electric and
    water to the docks, installing a marker light at the entrance of the marina for those
    who find themselves boating at night and provide more lighting in the commons
    area. If you have any comments regarding these ideas, please let your trustees
    know.

9. Guidelines For Using The Ramp: The ramp was designed for launching small
   boats and jet skis only. Be careful in using it. The concrete goes into the water
   about ten feet. It is suggested that you STAY AWAY from the davit side of the
   ramp as much as possible, because there is about a 20 inch drop off on that side.
   You could easily get into trouble. – BE CAREFUL. Richard Kmetz said he will
   try to mark the end of the concrete with a flag so that you will know where the
   ramp ends.

10. Pump House Keys: Keys to the pump house restrooms are available to anyone
    who wants them. See Scott if you would like a key. I believe that there is a key
    hanging in the general area of the restroom door as well.

11. Picnic Table No Longer On The Jetty: The picnic table that was out on the
    Jetty has been moved back to the commons area. Richard Kmetz placed a park
    bench out on the jetty for your enjoyment. Please leave all picnic tables in the
    common area.

12. Unofficial Discussion: There was an ―unofficial‖ discussion at the association
    picnic on Sunday May 26th, regarding the need for more picnic tables for our
    social events. It is very labor intensive to borrow and round up tables from
    residents throughout the park –then return them after the event. It was suggested
    that we buy about four more picnic tables to be used in the commons area for our
    social events and also to buy a couple gas grills. As it stands now, every time
    Darlene has a social event that requires cooking food, they must use their own gas
    grill plus borrow others. If you have any thoughts on this either way, please let
    your trustees know what is on your mind.

13. Speed In The Park: PLEASE observe the 5mph speed limit in the park and ask
    your guests to do so as well. This includes all vehicles- including golf carts,
    mopeds and scooters. This was a concern discussed at the annual meeting. There
    are small children playing in yards and it would be very easy for them to stray
    into the street. Please be careful and keep the speed down. This will also cut
    down on the amount of dust created along the road.

14. The Phantom Has Struck Again! Last year, someone ‗walked off‘ with our
    speed limit signs (in some cases post and all!). This year the phantom has struck
    again-- this time taking the ―visitor parking‖ signs. Does anyone have a clue?? If
    so, please turn the culprits in to the Baywinds Police!
