Bay Club Repair Project - Update

UPDATE: Bay Club Repair Project & March 19th Special Meeting of Members

Because of the overwhelming support and participation of SBCA Members, the Bay Club repair project will move forward. The vote to approve the special assessment that enables the repair project to be completed was 402 to 30.

The SBCA Board thanks the South Bay community for its widespread support and its assurance that the Bay Club is a valuable asset to all of us. We enjoyed 75% participation of all lot owners (not including PLA) and a 93% approval rate from those voting.

Assessment invoicing will begin April 1, 2016 with the next quarterly dues statement. All members will be assessed at the rate of $50 per lot, per quarter for five years. Members are welcome to pay the full $1000 per lot in one payment if so desired. Those, who are able and, who choose to pay the $1,000.00 now, will help reduce our overall cost by reducing the needed amount to be borrowed.

Any questions regarding special assessment invoicing should be directed to the Bay Club Manager at bayclub@cablespeed.com

The next step for the Board and its Special Project Group is to shop lenders for the best loan terms. As progress is made concerning bank financing and the construction schedule, email updates will be sent to SBCA members on a regular basis.

SBCA Tennis Courts now secured

The SBCA's tennis courts are now secured with a padlock. The tennis courts are now accessed in one of two ways:

1. Check out a key from the Bay Club Front Desk each time, and return to the key to the Bay Club Front Desk when tennis play has concluded. Keys can only be checked out during the Bay Club's normal hours of operation and must be returned on the same day before the Club closes.

OR

2.
Send an email to the Bay Club GM to arrange for a time when a key to the tennis courts can be issued to you (SBCA Member) to keep, so that checking out and returning a key from the Bay Club Front Desk will become unecessary for accessing the courts. There is no cost for a key, unless lost.

Helpful Links to keep informed.

Here are few links to help stay informed when there are travel issues or emergencies.

These links can be accessed with a computer, or with most phones (iPhone style phones). Cellular phones, like your iPhone can be handy during power outages to stay informed. You will typically need to turn on cellular data feature on your phone, as internet wireless access points use electricity and will be inaccessible. There are spare power packs and car chargers that can be purchased to keep your phone powered up during a power outage.
