POA completes projects

CROSSVILLE — We have completed some projects this spring at the Marina. We have purchased a 2005 Yamaha 50hp 2 stroke motor for one of our rental pontoon boats. Also, we have made some major reupholstering repairs on all three of our pontoon boats, including seat cushions, arm rests, bench seats and one of them with all new carpet. We also purchased five new buoys to replace older ones. The cost of all this was covered under budgeted items in the M/R for the Marina. Additionally, the restocking of 3,000 blue gill and 3,000 shell crackers to the lake took place on April 23. The Marina is now open for the season and I wish Carl and his crew good luck this year.  By the way, please get your 2014 boat stickers before you put your boat in the water.  Our Lake Patrol will be getting started on May 1. These gentlemen are here to help protect our lake and assist our members and guests. I appreciate their time and effort.

The golf course was aerified on April 2 and 3. Todd and his crew did an outstanding job getting this done. You may have also noticed the area around the driving range.  The plan was put in effect to move the putting green off Dunbar Rd. to a new location due to traffic. About a month ago, a drunk driver coming down Dunbar went off the road coming almost across our putting green. Two children were putting on that green but, luckily, no one was injured. It would be difficult to live with the fact that we knew about the danger and did nothing about it. The golf committee, along with Matt and Todd, came up with an area along side of the driving range to reduce the risk of having someone drive off Dunbar and onto the existing putting green.

Our Recreation Department has a lot of activities planned for this summer. Kicking off the season, on Memorial Day weekend there will be an Outdoor Arts and Crafts booth set up along with our Cruise-In. There will also be live entertainment. Once again, the Quack Shack will be providing food throughout the event. Hopefully, we can build on this year’s Memorial Day activities as a start for the Recreation Department’s new events and planned activities.

The beach will get some improvements this year. Five tandem truck loads of white sand will be brought in. Planned improvements also include enlarging two decks and adding a roof over the deck at the Quack Shack, as well as making these areas more handicap accessible. These improvements at the beach will be a great asset to make it more comfortable for our members and guest and also allow older people to come and enjoy our beach area.  

I hope you all will make plans to come out this year and support the Recreation Department as we start a new exciting venture this season.

  • An independence celebration to remember

    There was no event left out and not one person who couldn’t be entertained as Lake Tansi created a weekend long soirée to celebrate Independence Day this year. The large crowd of visitors provided ample participation for friendly competitions in ping pong, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, badminton, sack races, sandcastle building, and pie eating. While Perfect Party Rentals’ bouncy houses juggled little children, the beach accommodated sun-loving families and friends, and the car show brought dozens of classic and souped-up coups for the crowds to peruse.

  • POA looks to end year ahead of budget

    This summer has been outstanding here at Lake Tansi. It is a great time of year to live in and visit our wonderful resort. Our lakes have been busy. The cabins, golf course and Recreation Department have been running full bore, as well, with many activities. Our 4th of July weekend was the best we had in years – thanks to the weather – from the Cruise-in, music and movies at the beach, right down to the pie-eating contest and all the other activities held. Next year will be bigger and better yet.

  • LT Police Cruiser.jpg Security upgrades patrol vehicle

    The Lake Tansi Department of Security and Law Enforcement has acquired a replacement patrol vehicle. It is a 2008 Chevrolet Trail Blazer with 46,500 miles. It is replacing a 2001 Chevrolet Impala with approximately 250,000 miles. The new patrol vehicle will be placed in service as soon as it is fitted with the necessary safety and emergency equipment.  It is being equipped by On Duty Depot in Knoxville, TN. The Trail Blazer is
    better suited for service in the Tansi Community than the vehicle it is replacing because it has available four wheel drive which will enable officers to respond in inclement weather.
