South Bay Community Association Update

by Gil Skinner, President, SBCA Board of Directors

Difficult to believe it is May already. Definitely time to put in your application to be a new Board member for SBCA. Recently, I was spending some time at the Bay Club Lounge talking with Dan Quail. Dan was SBCA Treasurer during my first and second years as SBCA president when we had a special assessment to redo the exterior of the Club. What a great guy to be treasurer at that time. He watched the money like a hawk watches a bunny in the middle of an open field. No chance any money was going to get away from its allotted destination! I mention this because Dan asked about candidates for the upcoming Board. He shook his head as we discussed 600 lots with one to two people per lot and the difficulty to fill seven Board positions. Dan equated it to the military. You step up and do your two to four years and then get to really retire. We need more Dan Quails—sense of duty, fulfilling the duty, and moving on. In the spirit of Dan, I hope to see your letter of intent coming soon.
