Fall Greetings – Be Prepared for Winter

Apollo 1/2 - 1 in. PEX Crimp Ring Removal ToolContributed by Ray Hedlund – Member, Advisory Committee

This is the time of year where folks begin to think about closing up for the winter. The in-ground shut-off valves sometimes become leaky and cantankerous when shut down. Sometimes they refuse to close properly and then after you have gone home you will receive a call to come back and fix it.

Plumbers charge bucks to dig it up and replace it. They even charge more when it’s cold. Often times, they do not have the shut-off tool so they charge even more. My advice; if you suspect you have a leaker or hard to operate valve is to replace your valve while it is good weather and rates can be shopped.

Two years ago, your HOA purchased a specialized water shut-off clamping tool. It can be checked out and used. Then replaced by you so the next person can use it. The tool is located on site in a double locked case. You can access it by key holders. Any one your Advisory Committee has a key and we now have a hide a key on premises.

Disc Golf is Ready for Play

Please thank hard-working volunteers Duane, Jim and Charlotte led by Advisory Committee Chair, Donna Holick. They completed the installation of the catchers. The mats have been provided along with two sets of discs. The discs will be stored in the library in a blue sling bag. If you are interested in purchasing your own discs, please visit Big 5 Sporting Goods or Sportsman’s Wearhouse.

The course begins at the main entrance to the Festival Area.  Starting at Exercise Station 1 you will see Tee Mat #1.  Look ahead for the catcher with the yellow ring on the basket.  The course follows along the Festival hiking trails with each catcher near each exercise station with the next tee mat nearby.
