Wading Pool Removal - After 40 fun years, our wading pool has officially reached its end of life and is being removed, filled in and will be sodded this Spring. We are sorry to see it closed but a change in Alberta Health Services regulations along with unsalvageable concrete supports this closure. The Board is open to continuing to explore options for replacement. Please join us at the Town Hall on April 30th for more discussion or details.

In the event that there is an uneven number of directors being elected at the 2019 Annual General Meeting, then the additional director shall be elected for a two year term. At the 2020 Annual General Meeting and each subsequent Annual General Meeting, the directors elected to replace the retiring directors shall be elected for two year terms.

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.
Alcohol & Drugs - 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 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.
