September Calendar Updated

The September Calendar has been posted, please check it for any changes in times for you favorite events!

August Management Blog

There were just a couple of small issues at the management meeting this month. We have the new speed limit signs posted, and will be installing the mile markers around the walking trail. There were also a few street lights, and lights around the pool that need new photo cells. We’ll get those fixed shortly.

We will also start working on the monthly/annual budgets for the social committees, for supplies and what not. Jill will be meeting with the committee heads in September, on the 1st.

We also plan on cleaning and re oiling the hard wood floors in the clubhouse in September. This will take a day or 2. We apologize for any inconvenience and will work around scheduled activities. We’ll post the dates we are doing work when we have a date nailed down.

Just a reminder, we’ll be keeping the pool opened into September, based on weather, temperatures and usage. It will close no later the ne the end of September. This fall, we’ll have a meeting with the rules committee and discuss establishing “kids swim” access hours. We’ll let you know when that meeting is.

Fall is coming, enjoy the cooler weather when it gets here!

Cooking Caribbean Style 8-22-2009

We’ll be cooking Caribbean style next weekend at Southern Meadow. Dress to impress, and bring your appetite. In keeping with the island theme, we’re going to have a dry rubbed Pork loin, slow cooked over a charcoal fire, and basted with a citrus Mojo sauce. We could tell you the secret ingredients in it, but then we’d have to kill you…..We’ll also have Cola brined chicken quarters marinated in homemade bourbon BBQ sauce. Bringing chicken make it so juicy and flavorful, you’ll be back for seconds!! To finish it all off, we’ll be making Caribbean Black beans with bacon and Sofrito, and rice. Dat’s good, Mon!!

Andy and Walt “Mad Dog” Rhodes will be cooking all afternoon on his black iron cooker “Matillda”. Remember, cooking is hot work, so feel free to bring the cooks a frosty beverage if you want an early taste.

See you at the party!

Thanks to All!

I just wanted to be sure to thank Larry Koch, Gail Clemens, Andy and… really, everyone who went, for a wonderful time on the baseball trip! I must admit, I’m not a big fan of the Blue Rocks or baseball at all honestly, but with such great company and atmosphere I really, really had a great time from the bus ride to the stadium to lunch in that great restaurant!

So thanks again guys, I’m looking forward to many, many more
(no pressure, hee hee)!!

P.S. And oh… if you’ve got pictures I’d love to have them. Don’t forget me : )
