An Open Letter on Construction of the Renovation
June 4, 2012: Recently some members have expressed concern regarding the quality of the construction of the renovation. This is an open letter to concerns raised by one member.
We are all concerned with the quality of the materials that are being used in the construction of our new Clubhouse. As always, in a construction project there are choices to be made and compromises to be reached in order to come to a final project plan. Just as members have found when they commission the construction of a custom boat, some items need to be deferred as they cost too much during the initial phase of construction to be accommodated within the existing budget.
Webcam View Impeded
April 20, 2012: Boy, I sure hope that you have been watching the webcam this week. There has been more action than I can keep track of. The dirt and gravel was hauled in to fill in the foundations of the new building and then the rebar and plastic sheeting were installed.
March 11, 2012: I want to thank those members who were able to join us tonight in Juanitaville for the Annual Financial Town Hall. We were able to review the financial results of 2011 and talk about what we anticipate for 2012. Treasurer Scott Miller Treasurer revealed the numbers that showed we were in the black at the end of 2011 and we are projecting a similar result in 2012.

Not a Moment too Soon...
March 4, 2012: Tremendous progress was made this week. Demo was completed on Thursday and once the siding and Tyvek was removed we found that the decision to rehab the building was made not a moment too soon. As these photographs show the amount of rot and hidden damage behind the walls was very serious.
