LAKE COMBIE ASSOCIATION BOARD MEMBERS
"The first time I was on the lake was in 1980 while attending a wedding. My wife (to be), Debbie and I discussed how great it would be to live here. It has been an awesome place to raise my family. I am an avid water skier and fisherman. Today there are few places I'd rather be than out on the lake with my grandkids."
"My wife and I have lived on Wooley cove since 2015. We have two grown children and one granddaughter. I love life on the Lake and am happy to contribute my time to help keep this a wonderful spot. In my past lives I worked in Silicon Valley and raced motorcycles. As Treasurer I especially appreciate everyone’s membership and support of the LCA!"
"We discovered Lake Combie just after 2000, and we were excited to purchase a home here a few years ago. As Nevada residents, we cherish coming to Lake Combie, appreciate the beauty and serenity of it and love to explore its many nooks and crannies. We also really enjoy the friendly people and neighbors whom we have met here. We actively participate in all water sports, hiking and nature exploring and pretty much anything outdoors in all 4 seasons."
"Our Lake Combie experiences started in 1979 when we were invited to a water ski party and enjoyed the area. In 1992, we purchased our old house for the slope and location of the property and built our new house closer to the lake in 2003. Our old house was donated to the Meadow Vista Fire Department and provided training opportunities. We moved here from the SF Bay Area in 2004. We love many water sports and have entertained family, friends and have had lots of fun over the years."

"I am lucky enough to have grown up on Lake Combie and still call this place home. My favorite lake activities include Stand Up Paddle boarding and long distance swimming. I am passionate about cultivating lasting connections with my community and feel honored to serve on the LCA board."
"My family fell in love with Lake Combie on our first visit in the 80's, that we named it "On Golden Pond." We purchased a dumpy little cabin in 1993 with broken windows, orange carpeting, tile falling off the walls, no heat source except a small wood stove. It was pretty funky, with plywood walls in the garage that was a sort of small apartment. We were told it was called the "crack house" by the neighbors. We fixed it up to use as a weekend place and then later donated the house to MV volunteer fire department to help train the firemen/women. Several years later, 2004 we rebuilt a new home as our permanent residence. Our entire family, we have 2 adult children & five grandkids who love to water ski, tube, wakeboard, and fish on Combie. All five grandkids have learned to ski here, and enjoy all Combie has to offer. They refer to this as their "Happy Place." So many happy hours in and on the water, so many memories!"
Rick is the best ever! Rick!
