Backup WebMaster Sought

You may have noticed that we are doing more functions via internet, social media and our website. As Manor Lands continues to  use these tools, the job of our Web Master has increased substantially.  It has been decided that we will seek a backup Web Master to assist Mary Ann Wilson with the various duties associated with this role. That way she can take leave or go on a vacation without us continually trying to hunt her down to perform some function for us.  We are looking for a MLPOA owner or family member volunteer to assist her.  This person should have some computer and/or internet skills.  Please inquire if you are interested at

Road Closures

Hello all! My name is Darin Elliott. I am the new Caretaker for Manor Lands and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

***Reported Poaching Incidents on Manor Lands Property***

The Board of Directors has received information on two separate incidents of poaching within Manor Lands Property.  One was a deer and the other an elk.  Discharging firearms and shooting wildlife are not permitted in Manor Lands.  There are fines associated with both of these activities.  The information we have is that the elk was gutted near a road within Manor Lands, however we’re not sure which one.  We may have further information on this action that we can turn over to the authorities.  The deer was shot in Manor Lands and it left our property, however the owner of the property it crossed into spoke with the hunters in question.  He stated they informed him they had received permission to hunt in Manor Lands.  They also stated they were staying in Manor Lands and we are trying to track this down further.  Again, no hunting or discharging firearms is allowed within Manor Lands.  We are asking anyone who has additional information on either of these two events to please contact a Board of Directors Member.

Thank you,

Manor Lands Board of Directors

Campfires 8/12/2018

Last night 8/11/18 we had micro burst winds and dry lightning which blew a live pine tree down  that hit the high voltage power lines and started the tree on fire.

The membership responded in a large way, the Mini pumper and brush truck were taken to the site. The fire was extinguished quickly and the surrounding area was inspected for hot spots while we waited for Bridger Valley Elec..

Thank you all who responded!

It has been decided to ban campfires until conditions improve. Thank You in advance for your cooperation.

Curretly we have 3 brush trucks which have a capacity of 750 gallons of water. Response time from from Evanston is about 1 hour.

Manor Lands Security Report

The locks on all gates have been changed and we would ask that you DO NOT try to use your old keys!!
The old keys are ruining the locks especially when trying to force it to work in the new lock.
This damages the tumblers requiring replacements.
Also PLEASE do not spray anything into the locks. Sprays or lubricants of any type, gums up the locks and makes
Them need to be replaced/repaired. We have had several locks need to be replaced already because of
people trying to force the locks or using graphite sprays to “loosen” them up. PLEASE just don’t do it!

Cost of New Locks and Keys was $18,000.00.
Let’s use our heads and not add MORE costs to the keys, locks and gates.

We have also had reports of thefts and damages to owner’s property. If it is not your property STAY OUT!!
We are trying to improve our security and make it a fun safe place for all.

As always: if you are expecting guests, please ask them to wait at the gate and plan to meet them there at a specific time.
We have had some guests try to rush the gate when owners are opening. This is not only rude, but extremely dangerous. I have seen an owner almost run over by a rude guest.

The 15 mile an hour speed limit is always a problem – Please slow down, it is for your safety, protects our roads, and keeps the dust down, also the 15 Mph speed limit applies to cars and trucks as well as 4 wheelers and side by sides!

Most importantly enjoy your time and be courteous to your neighbors – just like at home only with much more beauty.
