An important announcement to members and guests.
At our club meeting this week, April 18,  we will be adding to our weekly Zoom at Noon meeting format a limited "in-person" get together at Saddlebrooke One Clubhouse.  Here is how it will work. 
Those who would like to begin meeting in person can gather at the Roadrunner Grill beginning around 11:00- 11:15 am to enjoy fellowship.  Our members, by a substantial majority, voiced their preference that for the next 2 months the club adopt a policy that requires participants in the in-person meeting to have completed the Covid vaccination program.   We agreed that this restrictive policy would be reevaluated prior to June 1.    Following lunch and beginning at 12:00 Noon we will open an in-person meeting in the back of the Agave lounge area.  There will be no service at that time.  We will also link in the Zoom at Noon meeting in a Hybrid meeting format.  Please feel free to call Joe Guyton or Ed Treick if you would like additional information.
