The pool is now open for the season! But with a new season comes new government regulations. Despite the fact that our water treatment system is fully automated, we now need to test every 4 hours to confirm that the system is actually working. Previously, testing in the morning was deemed adequate. That means that the pool can only be open when there is staff on duty to test it. This new regulation also applies to the hot tub. Pool and Hot Tub Hours: Sunday – Thursday 9am – 9:30 pm Friday & Saturday 9am – 1:30am Sunday before a holiday Monday 9am – 1:30amRead More →

You may have noticed that the dumpsters were replaced on Earth Day with these new containers. They are called Moloks. They were invented in the 1980’s in Finland. They take less space than a dumpster but hold more, are easier to access, and look better. With the new system, we now have 3 different waste receptacles: Mixed recycling Organic waste (ie. compost) Garbage for landfill The objective is to have as little of the last one as possible. Members and regular visitors will realize that the organics collection is new to us. Only include things that will rot and decompose. Please do not put plasticRead More →

When our new gate system was installed in 2016, it was supposed to prevent people from letting others in. In other words, nobody supposed to be able to open the front gate unless they had previously left. This is important in order for us to maintain control of who is on the property – all guests and visitors must be registered with the office. However, we have discovered that a configuration error allowed some people to open the gate more than once. That issue has now been corrected. As such, please make sure that you use your keyband, keyfob, or keycard when you exit. IfRead More →
