BHP Resident Directory
Posted on Friday, October 21 @ 13:58:26 EDT (3 reads)
We need everyone’s help in maintaining the Residents Directory and to keep it as accurate as possible. Information is gathered from many sources to update the directory but the largest source of accurate information is you. Please check your information for accuracy and if a correction is needed please send all the info needed to fix to pg12572@gmail.com

In the next few weeks I will be printing several hundred directories and leaving them in the clubhouse to accommodate returning friends and neighbors. Once this printing occurs the information will not change until January....if yours is wrong now and no correction requested it will unfortunately remain wrong for several months.

On a separate note there is a cost and time factor associated with printing these directories. Over the summer months 300 copies were consumed. One per household please, leave copies for your friends and neighbors.

Thanks for your help.

Golf Course Update
Posted on Friday, October 21 @ 13:30:50 EDT (2 reads)
Tom Pearson and Ron Jessup recently met with Sun Communities regarding the golf course. Their report is as follows....

"Tom Pearson and I met with Chuck Valente from Sun Communities about the golf course. We explained our concerns about the upkeep of the course once it was reopened as a complete 19 hole course. He has assured us that he will make sure the golf course will be maintained the way it should be. He was going to tour the course with Brightview and the Community Manager of BHP to see what else needs to be done. ( That tour of the course took place the afternoon of 10/20 ) We felt the meeting was productive. The front nine should be totally open in the next few weeks, and the back nine not long after that. The HOA Board of Directors was made aware of our conversation with Chuck Valente."

Ron Jessup.

I am sure all golfers appreciate the time and effort Tom & Ron have put into being a voice for golfers in the community. Has been a while since good solid representation has been available to bring daylight to concerns regarding course conditions and issue.

Great Horned Owl
Posted on Saturday, October 01 @ 15:29:18 EDT (74 reads)
This Great Horned Owl was looking a little worse for the wear after a stormy night last night. He was spotted perching on a handrail on Wendy Way. Drenched, he just watched warily as we walk by and let us approach to within a couple of feet for the pictures. He was there for several hours until the sun dried out his feathers and then he was gone. Quite a sight, and an experience to get so close. Later in the day Peace River Wildlife Sanctuary was called and they picked up the bird. He was covered in a sticky substance that prevented him from flying. He was washed off, and kept a couple of days for observation but seems he will be just fine.
