April 17, 2021:  The bog on Lake Three is now staked in place.    From John Lynn:  Heya Gilbert - We had a fun session of bog anchoring this morning.  Parker brought the horsepower, Matt and Tony provided the manpower!  We got some 2x4 stakes pounded in and chains to trees on shore.  All that and nobody got (too) wet.  Let's hope it holds.  Many thanks to the volunteers.  


Association President Todd Froemming obtained permission to move or remove the bog.  The permit is posted at the public landing.  Story from the fall of 2020


May 3, 2021:  The bog has moved to the east end of Gilbert Lake Three and is blocking the channel.  See photo below:
