From the General Manager: Pool Update and Golf Carts for Sale
The pool is getting closer to opening. We are still waiting for the pool inspection and ADA inspection to make sure the driveway in front of the pool fence is ADA-compliant. We will announce dates of opening as soon as we have approval. This will be a fun summer!

We will be selling three golf carts by closed bid. They will be moved to the middle of the parking lot so that you may inspect them. They will be sold “As Is”. More information to follow on Monday, June, 7th. This will be by sealed bids.

PMC Archers Update
After a long layoff due to COVID and archery range refurbishment, it is time to have our first post-COVID archery tournament.
This tournament will have 2 competitions, Compound Bows and Conventional Bows.
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals will be awarded to the winners of both competitions!
Date: Saturday, July 10, 2021
Time: Check-in closes at 9:00am. Tournament will start by 9:15.
Place: PMC Archery Range
Who: All PMC Archers with a Archery Membership are invited to participate
RSVP: Please sign up for the Archery Tournament no later than 7/3/21 by responding to this email with the competitor name(s) and which competition(s) that you wish to enter.
Tournament Rules:
Compound Bows will shoot at the 40yd target. Conventional Bows will shoot at the 20yd target. Otherwise the rules will be the same for both competitions.
All Archers will shoot at a standard 10 ring, 40cm targets and will have 10 flights of 3 arrows each.
Hits to the center ring counts as 10 points (a total of 300 maximum points are possible over the 10 flights).
Hits in rings away from the center reduces the score by 1 point for each ring.
If an arrow lands on the line separating the rings, it counts as the higher score between the two rings.
Archers will retrieve the arrows and record their scores with the scorekeeper after each flight.
After 10 flights are completed by each archer entered in the competition, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place archers will be announced.
In the event of a tie between potential medal winners, the tied competitors will be allowed 1 additional shot.
The archer who has the arrow closest to the center of the target will win any tiebreaker – This will be judged by the Archery Club Chairman.
In the event of no winner in the 1st tiebreaker, additional shot(s) will be awarded until the winner of the tiebreaker is determined.
Now get out to the range and practice, practice, practice!
Your Archery Club Chairman,
Bryan Skelly
P.S. Following the competition, there will be a quick meeting of the archery club membership to discuss future events.

MCFRC Served 68 PMC Seniors in Past Year
The Mountain Communities Family Resource Center has released a PMC Seniors Report that itemizes all the services provided to seniors in Pine Mountain Club. According to the report, MCFRC has served 68 seniors here, using just $2,535.91 of the PMC Seniors (Aging in Place) Fund in the first year of the project.
Due to the pandemic, the MCFRC has been successful in bringing more than $72,000 into the mountain communities over the past year, from varied sources such as FEMA, Zions Bancorporation and the California Family Resource Association, primarily to provide food and rental/utility assistance. In doing so, MCFRC has been able to preserve a large amount of the PMC Seniors Fund for future use, when these emergency resources are no longer as plentiful.
MCFRC has created a chart breaking down the resources and services the organization has provided. At this point, the fund has not been used to pay staff time to provide these services. To see more details and view a breakdown of services, please click here.

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.

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

POOL UPDATE

* Harper Pools is still working through county requirements and inspections before the pool gunite is approved for installation. We are hoping to gunite this week.
* If all goes well with the gunite inspections, then all plumbing and electrical can be backfilled around the perimeter of the pool.
* After the gunite installation, a final grading will be done which which will enable the construction of the new ADA ramp from the balcony overlooking the pool to the parking lot. In addition, balcony stairs, pole lights, the tennis court retaining wall, storm drain lines, and the shade structure can begin work.
* The drywall finishing has been completed in the interior of the pool bathroom structure and is ready for paint and tile installation. Tile installation is scheduled to begin this week.
* The architect has completed the design of the pool structure exterior siding. Allura siding with vertical "bats" every 16" will be installed.
* All balcony posts and rails overlooking the pool have been painted and ready for the stainless steel ballasters.
* Trex decking is scheduled to be installed on the balcony this week. After deck installation, the stainless steel ballasts can be installed.
* The steel handrails at the North ADA ramp are currently being installed and painted. The horizontal handrails will complete the ADA requirements for the ramp.
* The pool coping manufacturing is nearly complete and will be ready for installation after gunite.
* The water line pool tile has been received and will be installed after the coping installation.
* The architect is currently investigating prefab metal structures that can be utilized over the pool equipment. The manufacturers can design and engineer the structure per our specs. The structure can be ordered after the block wall is installed by Harper Pools around the pool equipment.

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
* He started the Oktoberfest in 1975. They were very well-attended and enjoyed for many years.
He was well respected when he was here and we know that some of our long-time members would appreciate knowing about Mr. Montgomery.

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.
