Pool is open 06-21-2019
The pool is open! It is Saturday afternoon at 4:30 and Valley Pools is here cleaning the pool. They applied the algaecide yesterday - so hopefully that will keep the ducks away! Please let me know if you see any nests or see the ducks swimming in the pool!!! Andy (from Valley Pools) said they should leave the area once nesting season is over!

Pool Update 06-20-2019
I just spoke with the rep from Valley Pools. Somehow the pool drained halfway down overnight. He said it looked like the valve on top of one of the tanks in the pool room had been changed, thus causing this. Luckily I noticed the drop in the water level on my early morning walk and was able to turn off the pump. He said if the pump had continued to run with the water level dropping, it would have burned out the motor. Just a reminder not to touch the controls in the pool equipment room! We also noticed that earlier in the week, the pump had been turned off! He was able to apply the algaecide, but couldn't clean the pool until the water goes back up. The pool should fill back up by morning. They will try to come back and clean the pool on Friday or Saturday morning. So - no pool today and possibly tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed that the algaecide will keep the ducks away!

Update on Ducks 06-19-2019
Good morning everyone, We wanted to keep you updated on our duck problem at the pool. The HOA Committee was hoping to hire an animal nuisance control company to remove the ducks. However... they are federally protected and cannot be trapped! So Larry Miller tried purchasing some items that would scare them off - a large plastic hawk, a big ball with a menacing eye on it, etc. The Blades and the Dinsmores have spent time on duck patrol - scaring them off each time they landed. So far - they are still visiting our pool at different times each day. I called Valley Pools this morning and they informed me that they will be applying an algaecide to the water tomorrow that should deter the ducks from landing as it will lower the surface tension of the water (which hopefully the ducks will not like!). They have assured me that this is not harmful to humans and we will not even notice it as we get in and swim. Hopefully this latest plan of attack will work! In the meantime, please do not fill your bird feeders until they are gone! If you know of a nest in the neighborhood, please let me know! Please join us at the neighborhood happy hour tomorrow evening and we can discuss other options if the algaecide doesn't work!

Ducks at the Pool 06-11-2019
Many of you have noticed that we have a duck problem at our swimming pool. Two ducks have been seen swimming in the pool on numerous occasions. The problem is the duck crap they leave behind. Valley Pools says that the duck poop will eventually stain the floor of the pool. Although our pool is treated, the duck crap could also pose some health issues. The management company is trying to contact an animal nuisance control company to see if they can take care of the problem. Has anyone seen a nest anywhere? We need to remove that before there are little ones! We just wanted to let you know about this issue. I will keep you updated as soon as I know more information.

Lawn Mowing 06-01-2019
The Advisory Board received notification that Fine Cut, our lawn mowing service was no longer able to mow for us because of inability to get/keep workers.The management company is receiving proposals from other contractors and we should have a new mowing service soon. I'll let you know as soon as we receive more information about a new lawn service.

Island Party June 1, 6:00 pm 05-19-2019
Hope many of us are planning to attend the Island Party at the pool on Saturday, June 1, at 6 o'clock. We need some volunteers to bring a couple more tables and chairs. Also anyone willing to share tiki torches and fuel with us? Let us know if you're planning to be there so we can have enough rotisserie chicken. Also we will supply a limited amount of Corona beer, but you are welcome to bring others. Anyone good at making Sangria? That would enhance the party. Please plan to bring a dish or two to share, primarily veggies, fruit, and dessert. Hope you can come, and let us know so we get the quantities right. Thanks.

Apologies 05-07-2019
My apologies to the poker group. Libba and I decided to go to the skyline drive yesterday afternoon, and between that and dinner at Vito's, I completely dropped poker out of my mind. I also missed all 3 of your reminders until this morning.

Pool News 04-30-2019
I thought I had sent this email earlier this morning, but apparently it did not go through. So - I will try again! The pool company has come over the past 2 weeks and uncovered the pool, cleaned it, and added the necessary treatments. They said it would be ready for our use on Wednesday afternoon That's tomorrow!!! Just remember - the heater has only been on for 2 days, so it might still be a little chilly. Weather pending, we will start our Thursday evening happy hours this week at 7:00 at the pool. For those of you who are new to the neighborhood, we gather on most Thursday evenings at 7:00 poolside to solve the problems of the day. Just bring your beverage of choice in a plastic container (no glass at the pool). If you wish, you can bring a snack to share. A gentle reminder that this time is for adults only.

Pool furniture help 04-22-2019
Good morning everyone, The pool will be opening on or around May 1, so we need to get the pool furniture out of storage from the Ford's house. (A big thank you to Al and Joan for doing this for us!) I am substitute teaching full-time until early June, so I am not available to help this year. Bob has had surgery on his arm - so he can only supervise. So far the only firm commitment to help is Ed Morrison. We would like to get at least 3 other guys to help load and unload the outdoor furniture at the pool. We could also use a few ladies to wipe down the furniture once it is in place (please bring buckets and rags). If you are able to help with this on Tuesday, April 23 at 1:00 - please respond ASAP to this email so that we know if we can move forward with these plans! Thanks, Susie
