Umbrella Damage – Plantation Pool

committee, community, pools
So this is what the pool committee was trying to avoid. See, the umbrellas that are closed can survive thunderstorms. Umbrellas that are left open cannot. When I checked on the push bar yesterday evening, there were people still at the pool and umbrellas still up so, that was fine but now this morning, this. Please comment below with your ideas to get this to be the last time we have to deal with this situation. I'm at my wits end. To confirm it was, indeed, left open, the process to open it requires a key is slid into through the pole, once pulled open or it will default to fall shut. It was left open. I know, so disappointing.

Update on Plantation Pool Fob System Repairs

Update on Plantation Pool Fob System Repairs

news, pools
Dear Winston Ridge Homeowners, I wanted to provide an update regarding the ongoing issues with the fob system (Linear Emerge) at the Plantation pool. After the recent repairs, which included replacing the control panel, we found that while the issue was resolved for some homeowners, it persists for others. Unfortunately, some data remains corrupted, and we are currently unsure of the cause. The vendor contacted for the repairs is scheduled to return and perform a complete data wipe. They will then manually re-enter the data rather than using a backup as done previously. We hope this approach will fully resolve the issue. However, we will not be able to confirm the success of these repairs until residents begin using their fobs, as the issue does not affect everyone uniformly. We…

Plantation Fob System Operational

Plantation Fob System Operational

news, pools
Dear Winston Ridge Owners,  The fob system at the Plantation pool was repaired yesterday and should now be fully operational. Our apologies for the delay in notification. Please be mindful of the weather this weekend as you enjoy the pool facilities.Your best course of action is to get underneath the veranda and wait to resume water-based activities until at least 30 minutes after you've heard the last clap of thunder. Even if the sky is blue and you can see the sun shining, lightning is still a hazard until you've waited through this period. Thank you.

Towing Sign at the Plantation Pool – Updated

Towing Sign at the Plantation Pool – Updated

news, pools
The HOA Board was not aware of the installation of this sign and we are looking into it. Update: The sign placed at the Plantation pool was requested by the community manager (Elite) prior to the pool opening.  The towing company was apparently out of signs and they fulfilled the request this past weekend.  The Board was not advised of installation timing in advance. Please note this same sign, from the same company, has been posted at the Listeria Crest pool for a a little more than a year.
