New business

  • Gail received another letter asking again for re-consideration of Significant Other application. It was discussed and concluded that we only have 2 eligible Signiant Others this season and will allow both once the EC decides it is okay to let immediate family guests accompany members to the club.
  • Gail also received a request to make accommodations for compromised senior members, discussed several options for specific time periods, designating Sea Deck. The decision was made to take it as a case by case basis. Members should call club and make arrangements with Jeff to reserve the Sea Deck for a specific time.
  • Parking at St. Theresa; Father Gary is cautiously optimistic. The dioceses had concerns because the  lot is not monitored which might leave the church open to liablity.  Father Gary is in conversation with the dioceses and doing his best to get us 15 Beach Club permit parking only spaces.
