ACES FROM THE COURTS - Jeff Ballard
Posted on Aug 29th, 2018
The dog days of August are upon us but that does not mean that tennis has stopped happening in our neighborhood. We have lots of new residents that have requested access to our court reservation system and I see them already using our facilities. I think this is just wonderful for our neighborhood. New players moving in means we can continue to have lots of teams at all levels. By my last count, we have 148 players playing on ALTA teams this fall and we have 10 teams total competing out of Chimney Springs. I know of several others who will also be joining teams so the count should go over 150 very soon.

I.  23rd ANNUAL EAST COBBER PARADE
Saturday, September 15, 10:00am. This annual parade is held to build a sense of community and reinforce East Cobb County’s stature as a great place to live. Floats, high school marching bands, and East Cobb civic and community groups will parade down the one-mile route. After the parade, the East Cobber Festival will be held in the south parking lot of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church.   
 
II.  THE COBB “EMERGENCY WARNING” SYSTEM
With the onset of late summer, early winter storm season, it may not be unusual to hear the wail of a Weather Warning Siren. Cobb County has more than 70 outdoor warning sirens to alert residents during a weather-related emergency. The sirens are intended to alert people who are outdoors that an imminent danger is approaching. The system is routinely tested at noon on the first Wednesday of each month, weather conditions permitting. If you are outside and hear one of these sirens, other than during a test procedure, seek shelter immediately and check your local weather/newscast for specific weather information.

FROM THE BOARD CHAIR - J.D. Tucker
Posted on Aug 11th, 2018
We are now only a couple of months away from our Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Clubhouse. The Open House will begin at 6:30 pm. This is your opportunity to hear about the year in review, participate in the election of three new Board members, and ask questions of Board members and HOA Officers. I hope you will make an effort to attend and participate in this important process. 
 
If you are unable to attend the meeting, there is an alternate method of registering your vote.  The By-Laws of the HOA state that voting may also be done by proxy. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a proxy is a document that allows a person to be authorized to act for another.
