Sent 2021-10-31: Revised/New Setup at Number 1 Tee Box - 

For all our owners, a quick update regarding playing golf at Sunshine. All owners and their immediate family play golf for free.

Immediate family is defined as the lot owners’: mother, father, sons, daughters, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and the spouse of any of the preceding persons.

Others can play golf, but the fee to play is $10 for nine holes and $15 for eighteen holes per player. We use the honor system. Bag tags and payment envelopes are contained in the mailbox at the #1 tee box.

A golfing visitor should add their name to the top and bottom of the blue bag tag, and to the small payment envelope. Place payment and the bottom half of the bag tag into the small envelope and deposit the sealed envelope into the “Pay Here” vault. Place the top half of the bag tag on your golf club bag so it is visible.

These instructions are posted at the #1 tee box. (See pictures below)

Alternately, owners can pay for their visitors play after the fact by writing a check to the office.

Happy golfing.

It's time for the first Meeting of the season for the Sunshine Birding and Nature Club.

The forecast is for a beautiful day on Monday November 1st, so what better place for the “Nature “ club to meet than in the Gazebo next to Texas Ave.

So the meeting will be at 2:00 Monday Nov 1st in the Gazebo. Should Mother Nature surprise us with a nasty day, as a fallback, we will meet in the Library at 7:00.

Mostly we need to talk about events. We need your input on what events to plan for the upcoming season as well as elections to fill some vacancies on our board.

Since we will be out doors, I'm not too sure how applicable the standard SEPO disclaimer is, but here it is anyway:

Everyone attending this event “in person”, by their presence, acknowledges potential exposure to Covid-19. Each person is responsible for his/her own choice as it relates to attending events.

Let's have a good “Out in Nature” meeting Monday at 2:00 in the Gazebo.

Last evening I overheard some of our residents talk about all of the homes that were For Sale (or Rent) in Sunshine. I wasn't aware of most of them, since I hadn't been sent any info to put on the Web site concerning these homes.

I have recently received an inquiry as to what all might be available for purchase, but I can't help them because I don't know. And in the past I know some of our newer residents purchased a home in Sunshine because they saw it on our Web site.

I am more than happy to get your home posted on the Web site if you will just send me the information requested in the guidelines HERE.

Sent 2021-10-24: LOOKING FOR RESPONSIBLE PARTY: Broken Window adjacent to the Golf Course - 

We have a broken window at 1944 W Montana, owned by Dennis and Carol Welckle. (See pictures below.) The broken window is located at the rear of their home and is adjacent to our golf course. The cause of this broken window mostly likely was from an errant golf ball off the number 7 tee box.


If you play golf, you should know you are responsible for damages caused by a golf ball you strike.

This happened a few days ago and no one to date has come forward to claim their obligation to the owner to make this right.

If you or another person you know witnessed the tee shot that caused this damage, please contact Carol Welckle at (320) 224-8044 and agree on how to resolve this issue.

I'm still working on the minutes from the 10-12-2021 Board meeting but wanted to send out the updates to the SEPO Policies & Procedures that were approved during that meeting. The approved changes were listed in the Agenda for the 10-12-21 meeting as Attachments 5, 6 & 7.

Attachment 5 –
Sale of Excess or Retired SEPO Equipment or Property

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES OF
SUNSHINE COUNTRY CLUB ESTATES
APPROVED BY ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 
DISPOSAL OF EXCESS OR RETIRED SEPO EQUIPMENT OR PROPERTY

When SEPO Equipment or Property is no longer required by SEPO, in order to give everyone a fair chance to procure it, if they wish, we will use the process defined as follows:
1) The community will be informed via Community E-mail and physical posting that an item is available for inspection at a ‘specified location’ until a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’.
2) Anyone can send an e-mail (or handwritten bid with a legible signature) to a ‘designated person’ with the amount they are offering by a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’. The ‘designated person’ receiving the bids is not eligible to submit a bid.
3) On a ‘specified Day, Date and Time’ the ‘designated person’ will look at the offers and announce the name of the purchaser to the community via e-mail and physical posting.

Attachment 6 -
Activity Requests for Private Parties in Common Areas

 

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES OF
SUNSHINE COUNTRY CLUB ESTATES
APPROVED BY ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 
USE OF COMMON AREA

6.  Private Parties -

a.   Persons holding private parties or other events shall determine if they invite persons other than owners to attend their function.

b.   Any one household may not reserve the ‘same’ Common Facilities, i.e., Retzlaff Hall or the Pavilion, for private parties, on consecutive days, consecutive weekdays, or consecutive weekends during any one month. This restriction mitigates the potential for a few persons to reserve our Common Facilities for extended periods.
c.   The Pool and Hot Tub are Common Facilities which can only be reserved for Board approved SEPO events.
 

Attachment 7 -  
Golf Course supplies in Storage Lot

 

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES OF

Some of the materials and properties stored within the SEPO Storage Lot shed area, which is located north of W Iowa, Ave are sand for our golf course bunkers, rocks, lumber used to create forms for our golf cart pathways and other stone and brick materials. These items are all SEPO property used by the Board Director in charge of the golf course to operate and maintain our Par 3 nine-hole golf course. These materials located here are not available for use by SEPO residents at their home. They are owned by SEPO and should not be removed.

Sent 2021-10-02: SEPO Complaint: Sunshine Flooded Streets & Speeding - 

Those of you currently physically residing at Sunshine are aware you had 4+ inches of rain yesterday. Even being up here in St. Louis, I know what that means, flooded streets. I'm glad to hear it is dried up today.

However, while the streets were flooded, there were apparently some folks 'speeding' on them even after signs to 'drive slow' and 'no wake' signs were put up on the flooded streets. Please remember this creates wakes that could cause damage to residents' property, ie skirtings.

Please be respectful of your neighbors' property, during flooding and always.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.     Beth Parrish (for SEPO Board)

Sent 2021-10-02: SEPO & Covid-19: Board Decision at the September 23, 2021 Board meeting - 

As you can see in the minutes from this Board meeting there was a discussion concerning SEPO events where the community will be in the same room together. Beth Parrish said our lawyer has indicated the Board can continue the use of Hybrid meetings. However, we need to state that there is a potential of exposure to Covid-19 by the fact that people are in the same room together. The Board has stated this in the last two Board meetings on 09-21 and 09-23 and will continue to do so ongoing.

After some discussion the following was voted on and approved by the Board.
 
This is to/for the entire SEPO Community -
The SEPO Board STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that for all SEPO Organizations’ events throughout this winter, until the Covid-19 exposure issue becomes a non-issue, the chairpersons at each of these events incorporate the following statement into their event Agendas/Notices and verbally state it at the beginning of their event.

Everyone attending this event “in person”, by their presence, acknowledges potential exposure to Covid-19. Each person is responsible for his/her own choice as it relates to attending events.
 
The Board would like to thank everyone for being diligent over the past many months and ongoing in helping to keep our SEPO residents/renters safe.     SEPO Board

Sent 2021-10-01: Upcoming pool closure - 

The pool will be closed on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 3 p.m. until noon on Wednesday the 6th of October.  Chemicals will be added at 3 p.m. They need some time to have the maximum effect on the water.  The pool and hot tub will undergo  normal shocking which is routinely scheduled for the first Wednesday morning of each month.
 
The hot tub will remain open Tuesday afternoon and evening.  It will be closed Wednesday morning.
 
Both the pool and hot tub will reopen at noon on Wednesday.
 
Please, take advantage of our new showers by using them BEFORE you get into the pool or hot tub.  Just a reminder: the use of lotions and tanning oil is highly discouraged in the pool.  It is fine to use them while sunbathing but, be sure to shower before getting into the pool or hot tub.
