Water Flow Halted for Ditch Cleaning at Beaver Creek Golf Course

Water Flow Temporarily Halted for Ditch Cleaning at Beaver Creek Golf Course
Yes, the Beaver Creek Golf Course ditches are not flowing.  Per Duane Clark, who is the contact for property security and maintenance, work will start on Thursday to remove silt and mud from a 30-yard stretch on the upper ditch which will allow the Third Fairway lakes to fill and thus send water to Lake Montezuma again.  If all goes well, water may be flowing by Friday.
Please do not mess with the water gates!!!  Call Duane Clark at 928-300-5751 if you have questions about this.  Also at this time the property is being mowed with a rented mower.  The belt broke which has slowed progress, but it is being replaced.

BCCA Board Meeting today 2/8/2017

The Board of Directors of the newly-renamed Beaver Creek Community Association meets today at 3:00 pm at the Beaver Creek Adult Center. Remember the time change to 3:00, not 5:00. They will discuss several important issues. Click here for the Agenda, and plan to join in the meeting to get the latest news and updates.

LMPOA Members Vote for Name Change

At their annual meeting of the membership January 28, 2017, members voted overwhelmingly in support of a name change for the historic LMPOA.  The new name:  Beaver Creek Community Association, or BCCA.  Board Member Ron Melcher presented the recommendation for change, as a beginning step down a road which may lead to our eventually seeking certification as a 501c3 tax exempt organization.  Only the name change was adopted at this meeting, however, and the membership will determine what other changes may come in the future.

The members re-elected directors Phil Edwards and Sharon Olsen for new three year terms.

Guest speaker Ken Zoll, Executive Director of the Verde Valley Archaeological Center, made a very good presentation about the progress of VVAC since its beginnings in 2010.  The accomplishments of that organization have been pretty amazing, and continue to surpass expectations. Thanks to Ken for a great talk.

The next meeting of the Board will be February 8, 2017, Wednesday, at 3:00 pm.

LMPOA Annual Meeting Saturday 1/28/2017 3:00 PM

Don’t forget, the LMPOA Annual Meeting of all members is tomorrow, Saturday at 3:00PM at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.  All members and neighbors are invited.  Come and see your neighbors, join us for refreshments and let your voices be heard. We will have an outstanding speaker, Ken Zoll, Executive Director of the VV Archaeology Center in Camp Verde.  We will elect the Board for 2017 and consider a name change for LMPOA.  Click here for the full Agenda.

Each year the LMPOA holds its annual meeting during the season when geese are flocking around the golf course, quacking and honking and generally acting like, well, silly geese.  One might think they were just a noisy gaggle of geese, each with their own opinion, loudly stated in honks and squabbles on 20160119_163248the ground.  You would be wrong, of course.  Those silly geese, who normally have nothing more important to do than to quack and honk, when they decide to flock together and rise up into the air, become a troop of aeronautic precision flyers.  They quickly rise in strict formation, inspiring us all and reminding us that even silly geese can do astonishing things when they share goals and remember their shared destination.

You might think, likewise, that the LMPOA is a group of citizens with no more important business than to worry about the stuff in their neighbors’ backyards!  You would be wrong, of course.  When we work together, we can accomplish extraordinary things.  We need your leadership to do that.  So come on out to the Annual Meeting on Saturday. Let the silly geese inspire us to flock together for our common goals as neighbors.

Swift Water Rescue on December 22nd

Chief Keller, Copper Canyon Fire & Medical
Reports Stranded Motorist Rescue from Roaring Creek

On December 22nd, at approximately 2:15 PM, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority was dispatched to a report of a pick-up truck that had been pushed down stream in Dry Beaver Creek at Kimberly’s Way in McGuireville due to significant runoff from recent rain.  Upon arrival, crews made voice contact with the single occupant in the vehicle about 100 yards downstream from the crossing, where it had lodged on some terrain adjacent to some small trees- firmly in the middle of the very swollen creek.  With limited technical rescue/swiftwater resources on scene, additional requests were made to Sedona Fire District to respond with technicians, as well as an ambulance from Verde Valley Fire District.  Copper Canyon Fire and Medical also recalled

technicians from their roster to support the incident.  Yavapai County Sherriff was also on scene and requested a response from their rescue team out of Prescott as well.  A request for a Department of Public Safety Helicopter was also made, as a back-up resource, but the aircraft were all grounded due to the weather.

After setting up an upstream spotter to watch for floating hazards and monitoring the rising water level, resources were divided to both sides of the swollen creek.  Crews then created several strategies to attempt to assist the uninjured occupant of the vehicle to the shoreline.  An initial effort to float an inflatable raft with paddlers came close to succeeding, but unfortunately the current was too strong for the crew on the raft to “make the eddy” by pulling the raft into the current behind the truck.  This crew was able to safely float downstream and after exiting the water safely, assisted with the next attempt.  The second attempt proved to be successful when crews delivered a rope to the vehicle by using the stream’s current, and the victim then tied this rope off to his truck bed.  This enabled a “swimmer” to use this angled line to safely approach the vehicle from upstream and deliver a life vest and helmet to the victim.  This same line was then relocated downstream on the shore, and this time the victim and the rescuer took advantage of the current to “ferry” along the angled rope safely to the shore.
Copper Canyon Fire and Medical greatly appreciated the support of the Yavapai County Sherriff’s Office, Department of Public Safety, Verde Valley Fire District, and Sedona Fire District in helping to mitigate this incident safely.  There were no reported injuries to any of the responders, and the victim refused further treatment after medical evaluation from Verde Valley Fire ambulance personnel.
CCFMA wants to remind everyone that attempting to drive across flooding stream beds is simply not worth the risk.  Floodwaters move and change the road surface, and it may no longer be where it typically is.  While this incident fortunately did not result in injuries, it easily could have turned out much worse.  At a minimum, the truck involved in this incident will need costly repairs, or to be replaced.
Have a Merry Christmas and stay safe this winter!
