Fishing Open House - June 13, 2019 at 7pm - An evening all about fishing at our lake! Bring your questions, suggestions and ideas. We've seen some great trout fishing in the past years and we look forward to meeting and chatting with you!
Fishing Updates - Great news! Lake Sundance was tested for Whirling Disease last fall and the test results were negative! As a result, we have updated the catch limits for Rainbow Trout. Residents are now able to keep 1 Rainbow Trout per home per day, up to a maximum of 2 Rainbow Trout per home per year.
Smoke-Free Park & Lake - Lake Sundance is now a smoke-free and vape-free zone. Thank you for your cooperation.
Chemical Treatment of Weeds in the Lake - The weeds in the lake will be chemically treated on June 17/19. The beach and all water activities will be closed for approximately 3 days due to the treatment.
Alcohol - We have had problems with members and guests bringing alcoholic beverages into the park. We would like to remind everyone that we have a "zero tolerance" policy and alcohol and drugs are strictly prohibited in the park, on the lake and on lake access walkways.
Water Well - We are in the process of drilling a second water well on the west side of the park. Both the well and the observation well have been drilled and the next step is to begin flow testing to see how much water the well is capable of producing. Once we have that, we will prepare the necessary permit forms and wait for the province to give us our license. Our hope is to have this second well producing by June 2019. The water well that was drilled in 2011 paid for itself within the first 5 years of use.
Water Quality - The Board has hired a Limnologist to work with us on understanding issues related to weeds and algae.
Day Lockers - There are day use lockers in both the clubhouse and the south washrooms. Users will need to bring their own locks.
Whirling Disease - Whirling Disease affects salmonid fishes, including trout, and has been found in many locations in Alberta and in the Calgary area. It can be transmitted through spores that attach to equipment used for swimming, paddling, boating, and fishing. Please help stop the spread of Whirling Disease by making sure that any boats, fishing gear, water toys and life jackets that you will be using on multiple water bodies are cleaned of all debris, washed and drained. Please also allow your equipment to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before using it on a new body of water.

Volunteers Needed to Help with Events
Our Social Committee is working hard to bring some new and entertaining events to our lake, but some of our future events are ambitious and will require a "network of community volunteers" to make them a success. Your involvement in our community events is critical! If you or someone in your family can volunteer a little bit of time during these events please fill out the electronic form at the bottom of this page and check the box "I am interested in volunteering at upcoming events. Please add me to your list of potential volunteers." Signing up to be part of our "network" does not mean you are committed to helping out for a given event. It just means that your name will be in our volunteer bank, and if we are in need of volunteers then you will receive notice of what is happening and what we need. Volunteering is completely optional. Volunteers that donate a minimum of 5 hours of their time per year will be invited to "Volunteer Appreciation Night". Thank you in advance from the Social Committee!!
-If you would like to receive notices about upcoming events at the lake via email, please fill out the form below.
-Have you signed up for electronic notices but aren't receiving them? Please make sure you add us to your address book so the emails aren't being rejected as "spam". Don't forget to notify us if your email address changes.
-We are currently investigating the possibility of sending future annual invoices out via email. Not only would this be more environmentally friendly, but it would be much more cost effective as well. We would like to start collecting your email addresses for this purpose so please fill out the form below.
