Lending Locker: Bruce and Nancy Balch, Al and Donna Luchenbill have offered to help during the summer.
Internet Connection: If, you would like to have a good connection in the resort, all you people up north need to email the BOD expressing that desire. Address it to: firstname.lastname@example.org, Treasurer@slrmail.com, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Clarification:We need their support, without it, we can all deal with dial-up or air cards, neither of which will be any good when you get back.
We now have internet working at the CHUG room, the Annex, and the Club House. The SLR Office is being added later today. Then we will connect selected customers before we re-wire the main system. The system may go down from time to time over the next four weeks as we are upgrading the rest of the system. No outage should be for more than a few minutes. We will be testing the new 100mb internet feed next weekend. If it works, we will have 10 times the speed of the old system if not, we have a backup plan. We have hired an outside company to remove all of the old equipment from the SLR towers and to install and commission the new hardware. More later.
The recycle bin has been relocated near the maintenance gate. The pool fix is currently in the middle of the bidding process. No timetable on this yet.
