SBCA Update

by Gil Skinner, President, SBCA Board of Directors

How time flies. I have heard that statement since I was a youngster. Now I know what it means! How did we get to June when only yesterday it was March Madness time? If you know the feeling, hold up your hand—just kidding. Seriously, as we age weeks fly by like days of yesteryear. So here is a quick review of some events at the SBCA in May with a look to the future.

First, and very importantly, the Master Declaration Amendment concerning Lots. Because this article is being written before the initial June 1 deadline for returning ballots, by the time you are reading it the Board may have decided to extend that deadline. So if you suddenly realize that you missed the June 1 deadline for returning your ballot, it still might not be too late. This amendment is critical to treating all lot owners fairly and to keeping your dues as low as possible. Please contact staff at the Bay Club if you have misplaced your ballot so that you can get another. We need at least 75% of all lot owners to vote “yes” for the Amendment to pass. Your SBCA Board unanimously recommends a “yes” vote. Please vote today if you have not already done so.

At the April 14 SBCA Board meeting the following motion was passed unanimously: Motion to approve presentation to LMC to support a joint LMC/SBCA group to begin a feasibility study to consider combining facilities for use by members of each HOA. This continues the efforts of the SBCA to join our two communities. Hopefully we will hear back soon from the LMC.

Now the fun stuff. Back Packs for Kids was the charity receiving funds from the May Pancake Breakfast. Turnout for the breakfasts continues to improve. We are slowly getting a few more of our LMC friends to join us and this is encouraging. There is still time to attend the June Pancake Breakfast (if the mail service is on time) and the June charity is the Port Ludlow Garden Club. Hope to see you there.

One quick note. Often this column and other columns in the Voice lament the lack of volunteers. Well, good news. For the May breakfast we had several new volunteers who did not want to be part of a committee but were willing to help on this event. We applaud these volunteers and look forward to seeing many of them again.

Our Activities Committee increased scheduled events in May including: “Help I’ve fallen and I CAN get up” (May 19), wine and cheese featuring Marrowstone Vineyards (May 20), and the first of a series on tribes of the Olympic Peninsula “The S’kallam People” (May 24). We will have separate presentations about the Suquamish People (June 18) and Makah People (date TBD). Each of these tribal presentations will include an artist(s) with examples of their art which will be available for purchase. All of these programs, except the wine/cheese event, are available to anyone in SBCA or LMC at no charge.

Finally, watch for information on our upcoming Annual Meeting on July 20.
