03-26-2021

The archway, misc, hardware and necessary parts to complete the Playground refurbishment project will arrive tomorrow 03-25-21, between 12:00 pm. and 4:00 pm. Then it's just scheduling the time to install the remaining parts and hardware to complete this project. I will coordinate this time frame with William V. and myself Randy McGrath (DFS).

03-19-2021

As we're continuing to wait for the remaining archway part for the playground superstructure of the twisted ladder area of the playground equipment. Once this part becomes available it will be installed. This was a oversight of the customer service personnel Jennifer Cassidy when she originated our order. All of the touch-up painting was completed early this week, each individual of the hardware connections / welded connections was preped with rust inhibitor (OSPHO), then, primed and painted per color code of the playground equipment color scheme. All of the pallots debri from the shipping of the new playground equipment was cut up into smaller peices with hand held saws-all and disgarded into the Waste management containers, this took several garbage pick-ups, but eventually now its all been taken away.

03-12-2021

The playground is now opened again, The worn out and rusted parts of the rail system were removed and replaced with new parts and all of the necessary hardware. This project was not an easy task due to all of the hardware had to be separated by using a grinder to cut out the nuts & bolts in order dismantle the exsisting bad parts. I brought the bad parts to the front of the Clubhouse parking area. I had my scrapman pick up the old srap-metal and hauled it off.

This goes to show that anything is possible, First thing this morning I received a phone call from a good Friend of mine who happens to live in the Community. It went like this RANDY, ARE YOU IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD? It just so happens that I was just entering the Community. Yes Sir I just pulled in WHY? He stated that was a PIG running loose in the Community. I could not believe my eyes ? BUT yes there was a little piglet running loose in around at the corner of Redondo / Ventura. I called the Police Dept. and they were already on their way. What a start to my day. It goes to show (JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE SEEN IT ALL) ??? Never a dull moment at Montecito Beach Club! From DUCKS in the pool to pigs roaming the streets! HEEEE Heee he Amen.

01-19-2018

The installation of safety caps on fencing around playground has been started. There are 490 pickets total that need to be completed. The railings needed for the superstructure have been ordered and will be installed by Mr. Wellman and myself at the earliest convenience. This undertaking was in an effort to save the existing equipment, repair / replace
parts accordingly. To clean up, treat, and paint rusted areas to make the playground safer / fully functional once again. This challenge can be met, and will be met for the betterment of the Community. After the new railings are installed and secured, we will be calling on some of the men of the Community to help if! some of the cleanup and painting of the
superstructure.
