Changes to State of Illinois rules for registering watercraft
Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats will no longer be titled/registered with Illinois UNLESS
they have a motor or sail; otherwise customers will be able to purchase a paddle pass at local vendors for $6.00 per stamp for the first three stamps. Any person who purchases more than three stamps receives each subsequent stamp for $3 each per calendar year.
The stamps must be purchased at the same time in order to receive the discount.
Non-powered watercraft means any canoe, kayak, kite board, paddle board, float tube, or
watercraft not propelled by sail, canvas, or machinery of any sort.
The statute indicates: Any person using a non-powered watercraft on the waters of this State shall have a valid water usage stamp affixed to an area easily visible either on the exterior or interior of the device.
According to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Apple Canyon Lake Marina will be selling the passes. They will not be available until on/around June 1 and will be enforced by the state after July 1, 2013.
Please log onto IDNR Registration/Titling of your Watercraft
for more details.

Winter Watchman Heat/Light Alarm Program
The Winter Watchman Heat Light/Alarm program was created to take some of the worry off the shoulders of our members while they are away from their lake homes.
By having a Winter Watchman installed in your home, it is not necessary to worry what the temperature is at ACL, or whether you should make an unexpected trip to Apple Canyon Lake to check the inside temperature of your home in an effort to prevent frozen and ruptured pipes.
To participate in the program, simply purchase a Winter Watchman, strobe light, and lockbox from the Association office or Safety and Security Department for a cost of $150. There is a participation fee of $25 per year for this program. You must supply the Safety and Security Department with a key to your home. They will then install the lockbox next to the front door, and place the key inside.
Here’s all you do: Plug the Winter Watchman unit into an inside wall outlet, plug the strobe light into the Winter Watchman, and place the strobe light in a window facing the road. An extension cord may be used between the two units if the strobe cord will not reach the watchman unit. Set the dial on the winter watchman to 40 (minimum) and your heat thermostat no lower than 60 degrees and you are ready to go.
If the strobe light should begin flashing, a Safety and Security Officer would enter the home to determine if it is necessary to call your furnace repair service.
The Winter Watchman Heat Light/Alarm Program is a low cost, simple system that works very well if you follow the procedures and set your unit properly. The strobe light can be seen over 500 yards away during the day and up to a mile at night.
Should the Safety and Security Department’s program inventory run low, please allow two weeks for your Winter Watchman, strobe light, and lock box to arrive and be installed.
Check with your insurance company to see if you qualify for a discount rate. Operational InstructionsHeat Light Registration Form
