Anyone interested in a trip to Brighton? Bingo and /or casino?
I have posted sign up sheets and a list of possible shows, trips etc. on the Travel Bulletin Board in the Club House. Please give me your input!
Health Dept: The Polk County Health Dept will be here on September 29th. They will be giving flu shots. At the present time, the flu shots do not include the swine flu shot. Contact Dick Dain at 696-1141 for more information. You must make an appointment with Greta Dain for a day and time. The Polk County Health Dept will call to confirm your insurance carrier.
Library: The library is open on Monday's right after Koffee Klatch.
Computers: October 1st starts the new season. Meeting/Class will start on that date at 10:30 AM in the clubhouse near the stage. Please bring along a writing stick and a notepad. Also, on November 12th, Lindsay Albers from Smart Computing Magazine will be here. She has been here before and always does a good job.
Tab Tops: Dale Calhoun wants to remind everyone to save your tabs from your beer or soda cans as these can then be turned into the Ronald McDonald House charity. If you save them, bring them south with you.
Entrance Gate: The Office is asking everyone that has a Bar Code attached to your vehicle, to call the office. Give them your stump number and the number of the bar code. Phone 863-696-2407. Email: email@example.com. New computer software has been installed and all of the numbers have to be put back into the system. You can do it now or wait until you get back, but you will not like doing it when you get back because you will have to go into the office before you will be let in. Please be patient, as I expect the office phone to be busy a lot of the time due to this notice. This information is also on the website(www.saddlebaglakeresort.net), under current issues.
Pictorial Directory: The directories are now available for pickup at the Woodruff Residence, 4 Queen of Waters or call 696-1053. This was well done. It has a hard cover. $10.00 per copy.
High Speed Internet Access: We are still waiting on AT and T to install a 3G transmitter on the phone tower out front. Other than that, LWW is still operating here.
Stump Paint: Anyone wishing to paint their stump contact Robert Douskey, 109 Saddlebag Trail, 863-221-1319. He has the paint, not the labor.
The ladies are playing dominoes on Wednesdays at 1PM in the annex. Everyone is welcome.
Pool: The latest word, the pool is closed until such time as repairs are completed. The pool has been filled with water to facilitate the curing process of the concrete. There is still some work to be done.
Directories: The new SLR directories are now available. The cost is still $1.00. Contact Dot Lynch at 696-1418 to get your copy. She will also deliver if needed.
Beginning Friday, October 16,2009 Saddlebag Lake Resort Bingo will resume its regularly scheduled season, playing through Tuesday, April 13, 2010. Bingo will be played every Tuesday and Friday, beginning at 6:30 PM. (Doors open at 5:30 PM)
(1) All "wild" numbers will be called during games in which they occur, so please do not "remind" the caller that it is a wild number. Some folks might have missed it when first called.
(2) Speed Ball will be closed BEFORE the numbers are called back by the caller as is customary.
We look forward to seeing you all back for SLR Bingo for evenings of fun and games! (Refreshments will be available same as last year.)
