I hope this email finds everyone enjoying the wonderful Spring weather that we are experiencing right now.  Spring has definitely sprung!  We live in the southern part of heaven here in Sea Trail and we are blessed to be here.  

  • Beach Parking Lot – Your STMA board recently updated our beach parking lot with some additional  parking spaces designated for golf carts only.  If you look along the fences on both ends of the lot, you will see some yellow “whiskers” along with some new golf cart parking only signs.  The whiskers are there to outline the parking spaces for the golf carts.  We have NOT reduced the number of car parking spaces, just added 6 spaces for golf carts only, thus increasing the overall number of spaces to 46.
  • New Benches – After receiving requests from a number of folks out walking,  your STMA Board has  added three benches to different common areas around Sea Trail.  The first is near the spill way on Ricemill Circle.  The second is at the intersection of Clubhouse and Ricemill and the third is in Byrd Watch behind the mailboxes overlooking Byrd #1.  Check them out when you get a chance.
  • New Maintenance Technician – In case you haven’t heard, we have a new maintenance technician, Greg McIntire, that started here a couple of weeks ago and replaces Rick.  Greg promises to be a welcome addition to our CAMS team and he has already hit the ground running.  Welcome Greg!  We all look forward to working with you.
  • Umbrella over Grills at PP – We have ordered an oversized umbrella to be placed over the grills at the Pink Palace pool.   We expect it in any day now.  While it will be easily deployable, we ask that when you finish using the grill area, please close it back up to avoid any damage from evening storms or high winds.  Thank you in advance.
  • No Open Flames –  We had a recent event at the Pink Palace that has caused a change in the rules of usage at both the Pink Palace and the MAC.  A sterno fuel cell being used to keep a catered event food warm overturned at a private event and burned one of our tables.  As you can imagine, this could have been a major fire very quickly.  Therefore, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY,  no more sterno fuel cells, candles or any open flame will be allowed inside either of our activity centers.    The STMA has ordered a number of warming trays that will be used in the future.  They will be stored at the MAC and the PP in the kitchen of each amenity.  Currently we plan to have six trays in the PP and three in the MAC.  Please plan on using them instead.  Thank you for your cooperation.
  • Finally, I am hearing a lot of very positive input about the changes going on within Sea Trail.   People are excited and love what is happening inside Sea Trail.   Thank you for your unsolicited atta boys!  Please let our new Sea Trail owners and management team know how happy you are and how much you appreciate them and what they are doing.   A pat on the back or a good word goes a long way.   Needless to say, positivity promotes positivity!

Take care and see you on the course soon, I hope!Steve Miller, STMA President
