Non-Urgent Notices/Postings/Safety Tips/Phase 1 & 2 Construction Updates

Dec. 19, 2021

Pool Update
The construction project and pool are progressing very well considering the challenges of 2020 (world-wide pandemic and weather). All good things take time, which, in the end, will give our members a wonderful new amenity that we can all be proud of. The quality and workmanship is excellent, which is a testament to our great contractors.
* The ADA ramp from the upper deck to the parking lot is nearly complete. Minor painting and metal hand rails still need to be completed. The ADA ramp is a modification from the original plan to install an ADA elevator that could only be used by handicapped individuals. The good news is that, by replacing the elevator with the ramp, the cost is nearly half as much and can be utilized by all members and guests throughout the year. When the project is complete, the clubhouse access will be in full ADA compliance, complete with two ADA, battery-operated lifts for both the pool and jacuzzi.
* The pool shade structure has been completed and painted.
* A portion of the pool deck was poured on Friday (1/15) at the east side of the pool, as well as a concrete ADA ramp next to the tennis courts for access to the pool deck. The deck will be poured in sections, which will continue next week.
* The two pool bathrooms are nearly complete. The interior bathroom partitions have been delivered and are scheduled to be installed next week.
* The outside pool "pre-showers" have been completed.
* Western Propane was scheduled to deliver the propane tank on Monday (1/18), which will service the one million btu (British thermal unit) pool heater. The tank will be equipped with an electronic transmitter, which will enable the propane company to monitor and fill the tanks as needed.
In addition, the old propane tanks servicing the clubhouse will also be retrofitted with the transmitters at no extra charge.
* The pool equipment (heater, pumps, filters, etc.) are scheduled to be installed after the deck and equipment roof is installed. Two filters from the old pool, which are fairly new, will be utilized for the new pool or the jacuzzi.
* The pool fence is currently being fabricated by Harper Pools. Most of the fence posts have been installed at the west and east sides of the pool with a concrete "continuous bench" for member seating. The new RFID security locks are being incorporated into the gates. RFID pool access cards will be available to all members prior to the opening of the pool in the spring.

Pool Update
* The recent snow storm set back work on the installation of the pool coping (completed) and water line tile which is now completed also. The good news is that the snow helped compact the soil around the pool.

Update on the PMC Dog Park
   As some of you know, the PMC Dog Park was severely damaged during the last heavy rain storm and there are now ongoing efforts to restore the park to make it bigger and better. PMCPOA has allocated extra space to the park area to make more room for the larger dogs to run and Kim Wickers has organized a fundraising effort to purchase new fencing, poles, etc. The association is also rebuilding the mountain side of the park to divert future rain storm runoff. There is additional information on Kim’s Facebook page and you may contact her if you have any questions.
   If you are interested in contributing to the Pine Mountain Club Dog Park fundraiser, there are two ways to do so; 1) You can visit Kim’s Facebook page to access the fundraising post, or 2) You can make a check payable to “PMCPOA” with “Dog Park donation” listed on the memo line and then deliver it directly to Kim or place inside an envelope addressed to “Kim Wickers c/o PMCPOA” and put it into the drop off box at the front door to the clubhouse. All contributions will be 100% directed to the Dog Park and any remaining funds will be used to help maintain the park area.
Thank you,
Bill Lewis II
PMCPOA Chairman

One of our long-time members recently found out that one of our earlier members, Ed Montgomery, recently passed away in the Palm Desert area where he was an assistant golf pro.
These are some of the highlights and contributions made by Ed Montgomery over the years:
* First golf pro ever hired by PMC
* Established the Junior Golf Program here
* Started the “Club Championship” Program
* While he was the golf pro, he was also the Recreation Director
* He worked with the Recreation Committee on many yearly events
* His son was born while he was living in PMC

Halloween Safety Tips by Cal Fire

Tips for choosing the right costumes:
▪ Purchase costumes made of flame-retardant material (Check the label).
▪ Keep hemlines short enough to prevent tripping and avoid loose, baggy sleeves, or billowing skirts.
▪ To be seen easily, costumes should be made of a light-color material.
▪ Use glow-in-the-dark reflective tape on your costume.
▪ Use make-up rather than masks, which could obstruct vision.
Tips for Halloween night:
▪ Use battery powered lights -- never use candles to light jack-o’-lanterns.
▪ Instruct children to stay away from open flames.
▪ Remove objects from the yard that present a hazard to children (garden tools, hoses, etc.).
▪ Be extremely careful with cornstalks and other harvest season items. Keep them away from sources of heat. Don’t let them block doorways or stairs.
▪ Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury to themselves or to others.
▪ If you are driving on Halloween, take care...watch out for trick-or-treaters who will be too busy to watch out for you.
▪ Closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger. If in doubt, throw it out.
