Ondulando Club News - 25 September 2021

New Bill Payment Option

Starting with the October 2020 statement, members are receiving their dues invoice notification via email with the option to pay online via Intuit QuickBooks online payment service. It is fast, easy and secure; please give it a try. Members who prefer can still pay their dues via their bank's bill pay systems, or via hardcopy check and the US Mail.

The Pool is Closed for Construction - but reopening soon!

The Ondulando Club is hiring lifeguards for Fall and Private Parties. Please call or text Ken White at (805) 814-0690 for more information.

Annual General Meeting: Our annual meeting is scheduled for 2:00 pm Sunday November 14th, 2021, at the Ondulando Club. Please mark your calendars.

Call for Directors: An important piece of business at the annual general meeting is the election of directors. Seven directors run the daily business of the club and have been working hard to rebuild our clubhouse and reopen the pool. The next board has the opportunity to return the club to normal operation, while pressing forward on our fire lawsuit and financing/constructing the second building in our rebuilding plan. We have three positions up for election this year and need energetic candidates to help take us into the future. Directors must be certificate members, meet monthly, and serve a two-year term. As compensation, directors are not assessed membership dues.

We need directors - please consider running! For additional information, contact Tim Troske, (805) 323-6013 tim@troske.com

Construction Update

​​The rebuilding project is 98% complete. We've completed several big tasks this past month and have two big ones remaining before we can reopen. We have given up trying to predict our reopening date. The best we can say is that the pool will reopen in the near future.

The fire main system is complete, approved, and operating. The fences and access gate are complete. We paved and marked a new 4-space drop-off and accessible parking lot near the access gate, and patched several damaged areas of the driveways and parking lots.

Full electrical service is nearly restored. This is a critical item to occupy the building and certify safe and healthy operation of the pool. We replaced the service meter electrical panel with the correct commercial model and have notified SCE to complete our service connection and turn on the electricity.

When full electrical service is restored, we can turn on all the pool pumps, chlorinators, and building systems. This in turn will allow the County Health and Safety department to inspect and approve the pool for operation. Then we can reopen. It can't come soon enough.
