Club Gym

For  those of you that would like to exercise with a beautiful view although  with less equipment available, remember the use of the club gym is  included in your club dues.   If you experience problems in the gym  speak to the hotel front desk.


It's perfect if you have a trainer as it is quieter.

The gym committee has provided some videos to see the correct usage of these new pieces.  Even if you have used such machines before, they suggest you watch (they are very short).  The Rower Technique video will really make your workout more efficient.

Capital Improvement Committee

 Town Hall Meetings are held monthly.
The February 28th town hall meeting on construction drew a crowd.  These updates are really important and we encourage more of you to join.
Covered topics were:

  • The phases the project breaks into
  • The sequence of events in each phase
  • The progress to-date
  • A 30 day look ahead  

CIC is planning to hold the town halls on a regular basis.  Please join.
The CIC committee has also provided a summary of the Feb 8th meeting which was also a town hall.    Our project manager sat down with the community to discuss the schedules, the costs and decisions made about the look of our decks. Meeting Discussion Summery.* Much of this meeting’s discussion revolved around keeping control of costs while at the same time accomplishing the important improvements needed.* Due to severe problems with concrete deterioration on the #2 pool deck, the project is over budget.* It was decided to provide the much requested ADA compliant ramps for access to and from our decks and pool areas. To install these ramps as required is expensive. To offset the cost, it was agreed to postpone the painting of the garage areas. The costs are almost an even exchange.* It was agreed to reduce the size of the Trellis and Fountain on each new Sculpture Deck. The new size is very reasonable.* It was agreed to increase the contingency from 10% to 20% for full hard cost items on the project.* The project is on track, with the revised new schedule, at this time.

  • It's a good solution until the bird's habitat has been restored and they no longer flock to the terraces.
