President’s Message: Goodbye 2020!

Hello CBSC Members,

Can you believe it has been roughly four months since we wrapped up the summer of 2020 and started the upgrade of our facilities? Yes, we are now in December, and we have been busy. I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what we have been doing this fall in preparation for another exciting 2021 CBSC summer.

CBSC Board

We continue to have meetings as we maneuver through a few projects and regular off-season club business. But why stop there! We have some upgrades in the works for many areas for our summer of 2021.

The team is planning for an exciting “full speed ahead” summer, but we are also preparing for another summer that may have limitations depending on the COVID situation. Our limited 2020 summer gave us an excellent opportunity and a foundation for effectively operating, given the safety restrictions we experienced.

The Pool

If you have poked your head over the fence, you know that crews are very busy with the pool and grounds. In early September, the equipment arrived, and work began on demolition to prepare for the upgrades to the facilities.

Luckily, the weather has cooperated, allowing work to continue and progress as planned. To date, the cement work for the pool and mechanical room is now complete. Work on the surrounding areas is starting to take shape, and I can see it coming together.

What a cool view!

CBSC Website

Our website will be getting a facelift! I am excited to share that we are developing a new CBSC website that will be mobile-friendly, allowing all our members access. The team is working on a spring release date. Stay tuned.

New Pilings for the Tank

We could not forget our beloved beachfront icon, the Tank! The wooden pilings that kept our swim tank in place over the summer months were over 20 years old and, upon further inspection, were definitely in need of replacing. The crew successfully installed new pilings in late November, so the tank has a secure anchorage for future summers.

CBSC Summer Wear

We are excited to be adding to our new CBSC website an updated ordering process for our CBSC clothing. This new process will ensure that even if COVID is forcing us to stay in small groups, you will be able to buy the latest gear for summer. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

On behalf of myself and the entire CBSC Board, we would like to extend our very best wishes to you and your family for a safe and healthy holiday season!
