Pond Closure Update

Chuck and I just finished our meeting with SCV Water District and SC Parks & Rec. I believe the meeting went well and they were very receptive to our ideas however the Pond is still closed to all boating. This is a good time for everyone to understand how lucky we are to have use of this facility. We are very well respected and liked by both of these agencies and that has been the main reason we still operate at this prime spot. I cannot begin to express how fragile our lease agreement is with the County, and how important it is to stay squeaky clean and continue to give back to the community like we have for so many years. Thank you to all the long time club members and previous club members who have laid the ground work for this club to still be using the Pond today. Great work!!

The water district is in a tough spot trying to lay out a program that is consistent across the board for everyone. Bruce from the district is going to take our proposals and “mull” them over with his staff to see if they can make them work. Hopefully he will have some answers for us the early part of next week. We need to stay patient here, because if we push the situation we could be out for good! They sounded very receptive to our specific needs to open the Pond for special events like our tournaments and Learn to Ski Days, but as we know that would be a small fix for this very big problem.

We are working on this and hope to have a resolution soon, so please be patient, say a few prayers, keep your fingers crossed, and above all – STAY OUT OF THE POND- for now.

Thanks,
Mark Normandin

TAX TIME “Give me a Break” Tournament

Well Mother Nature cooperated and kept the wind down to allow to us to
get 2 great rounds in at the Pond. We had 17 skiers and were able to
get off both rounds with good conditions. We had Mark Normandin getting
into the purple rope in the first tournament of the year with a
tournament best 2@38 off, showing he will be a force to be reckoned
with this year. Linda got into 35 off and gave the rest of the
shortline men a run for their money (I think this was a tournament PB
for her!!)

Scott and I would like to say thanks to all who pitched in and helped. Dan Griffith
