2018 Flotilla


Past & Present

May the 4th Be With You

Don’t be confused. Force yourself to mark your calendar for July 7, 2018 for this year’s flotilla. The theme is Star Wars Past & Present. Perhaps the Millennium Falcon will travel to a galaxy far, far away or at least to Lake
Tippecanoe with family and friends. Star Wars opened in movie theaters on May 25, 1977, and throughout the 41 years there is a collection of memorable characters, species, quotes and spaceships to spark a floaters creative energy.

This family- friendly, free event will take place at 1:00 PM, water front at Patona Bay.  So if you are a fan, geek or just wanting to have fun, plan to join other warriors on the water or shoreline for a traditional great time.

Additional details to be published within the next few months. Log into for updates.

While celebrating the 4 of July, remember, “Heroes get remembered, the legends never die.”

LTPO Directory Cover


Cover Pictures Needed for the
2018 Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners
Annual Directory

If you are interested in submitting any photos for the LTPO directory cover, please email them to Ian Crighton

Things to consider when choosing images:
  • Faces are best. I use a few “scenic” photos every year, but mostly people.
  • These images are reproduce as a small size, so if they are too complex, it’s hard to see the subject matter.
  • The printed resolution is 300 dpi. That ,eans any images less than 600 x 600 pixels will not work.
The deadline is March 10.

Thank you!
Ian Crighton

Every winter, thousands of Hoosiers enjoy fishing, skating,  hiking or just sliding around on frozen ponds and lakes. And every year, people drown after falling through ice. Like driving on snow, Hoosiers need to re-learn  how to have safe fun on ice.


If You Are Fishing:

  1. Drill your own test hole near shore. Your test hole should  show at least a four-inch thickness of clear ice like you get from your freezer.
  2. Wear a life jacket for extra warmth and safety.
  3. Be aware of various ice strengths and qualities. One area of a pond may be a foot thick while another spot of ice may only be an inch thick.
  4. Ice strength can also change. Thick ice is rotten after rain. Old honey-combed ice, slush ice or ice with current under it is also dangerous. New ice is almost always stronger that old ice. Wind, waterfowl and beavers can also keep areas of ice thin.
  5. Indiana law limits ice fishing holes to a diameter of 12 inches.
  6. Fishing shanties must have reflectors on each side so snowmobiles won’t crash into them at dusk or during snowstorms.


1 inch of ice STAY OFF!!!
4 inches of ice Needed for safe ice fishing
5 inches of ice Needed for snowmobiling
8 inches of ice Needed to support the weight of a car or light
10 inches of ice Needed to support a medium weight truck

Distinguished Lake Citizen Award


Distinguished Lake Citizen Award

The Distinguished Lake Citizen Award Committee wants to remind Lake residents to be thinking about possible candidates for this coming seasonal award.

Eligible candidates are individuals who reside full or part time on Tippecanoe, James or Oswego Lakes for at least five (5) years and are members of the Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners Association.

We are looking to honor that individual or family who has made a positive impact on the quality of life at the lake. Think about that person in your neighborhood or landing that seems to be the “living” example of an individual who cares for the environment, our properties and the well-being of fellow residents; maybe it’s the landing director that always takes the time to represent his/her neighbors at the meetings and is actively involved with the Association.

Last year’s recipient, Dave Swart, was honored for his stewardship of the Lake and the years of spirit and leadership. So give some thought to the residents of your landing. The Committee will certainly welcome all recommendations.

Committee Members: Connie Anthony, Gary Calhoun, Mark Ennes,
Mike Lattimer & Jeff Thornburgh


Sponsors must submit their nomination on the form provided.

Please mail your nomination to:

LTPO, PO Box 224, Leesburg, IN 46538

or  send electronically to   .

Applications will not be returned and will be kept on file for one year after submitted.


  • Any person(s) who reside full or part time on Tippecanoe, James or Oswego Lakes
  • Has been a lake resident for no less than five (5) years
  • Has made a positive impact on the quality of life on Tippecanoe, James or Oswego Lakes
  • Must be a member of Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners, Inc.
