The monthly board meeting was held on Tuesday, July 16, 2002. Treasurer Jere Berkey and Director Jack Jost were absent.
Director of Tennis Mike Smith reported that the Interclub Doubles Classic held in June was a success. There were 2 pros from 8 clubs that competed. Upcoming events will include a round robin to coincide with the US Open and a Welcome Back event - date to be determined.
A suggestion was made to the board to extend an offer to Erik Luxembourg in a playing pro status. Erik would represent The Landings along with Mike Smith in events locally and statewide. This offer was discussed among the board as unofficial opposed to an official title that would be subject to review. It was decided to extend this courtesy on an unofficial basis for one year.
In the absence of the Treasurer, Jere Berkey, Club Manager Kevin Richards reported that the club is in good financial shape.
Kevin Richards also reported that the paver brick project on the pool deck has begun. Leslie McLean has officially retired as Pro-Shop Manager, however, she will work 1-2 days a weeks starting in September. Mina Thompson is the new Pro-Shop Manager and acting club manager in Kevin's absence.
Cost of replacing the canopies around the pool is estimated to be between $1500 and $1800. New umbrellas and bases have been purchased. Judy Greene recommended that the board appropriate no more than $1800 for the canopies. Repair and painting of the fence around the trash area has begun. Upon completion, work will start on a stone wall at the end of the walk near the side entrance to the ladies locker room.
Kevin Richards, Bob Fernander, Judy Greene and Barbara Pendrell will get together to plan upcoming parties to include Staff Appreciation Day and a pool party.
As Chair of the House Committee, Judy Greene recommended that when the pool work has been completed the windows of the fitness center, clubs and pro shop should be cleaned.
