ACES FROM THE COURTS - Jeff Ballard
Posted on Jun 27th, 2017 Comments (0)
Summer ALTA and USTA seasons are in full swing this summer in Chimney Springs. We’ve had a busy year at the courts in terms of both playing and maintenance. The repainting of courts 3 and 4 were completed in early June and we are happy with the results. The Boys 18U team won their city championships and will move up to play at the B1 level their next season. The other playoff teams all won their first round but then fell in later rounds. This continues a very positive trend amongst our teams for 2017.

POOL PROJECT
It’s hard to believe summer is nearly half-way over and school starts back at the end of this month. Summer wouldn’t be the same without many trips to the Pool for fun, relaxation and hanging out with our friends and neighbors.

Trespassing & Vandalism Are Crimes!
Have you ever witnessed a situation and you really didn’t know what to do? Ask yourself, ”If I saw someone vandalizing property or trespassing, what should I do?” Residents of Chimney Springs have experienced this in our neighborhood on several occasions in just the past year.
 
Trespassing is when someone enters property that is not their own without permission or legal right. For the HOA, this would include using Common Areas after posted hours, for purposes other than intended, or when access to a controlled area has not been granted. Our neighborhood has experienced an increasing trend of people jumping the fence to use the Pool without an access card, Tennis Courts used for purposes other than tennis, and use of Common Areas after 11:00pm to name a few. These are all considered trespassing.

USE CAUTION! USE CAUTION!
By Webmaster on April 28, 2017
With the beginning of Day Light Saving time and warmer evenings, remembering to wear reflective gear while running, walking, or bicycling in the dark is very important.

How many times have you been driving down a dark road and have to stop suddenly because you see something moving? Or how many times have you been exercising and felt like you came close to getting hit by a car? In either of these cases, was reflective gear being worn? Probably not.

It is not enough to just wear bright clothing; reflective outerwear is designed to reflect to a driver's eye when approaching you. On cold nights, don't make the mistake of wearing your reflective vest under your jacket or sweatshirt...really defeats the purpose don't you think? If you can't afford to buy reflective clothing, try reflective tape or bands that you can put on several parts of your body. The more body you cover, the better off you are.
