All Hands On (or off) Deck Beginning Monday February 18th, 2019
As with any building, over time maintenance will only take you so far. Due to safety concerns with the large crowds that gather on the deck for various events, age, and overall condition, the time has come to replace the entire structure. The membership was presented a plan and budget which was approved in January. Quotes have been solicited and reviewed by the House Committee presented in the February meeting and finalized. Due to the size of the project, the upgrade complete overhaul will incorporate improvements and features for better use above and below deck.
Work will begin Monday February 18th, 2019. Steak Night and all other deck activities will be CLOSED until further notice. We anticipate the entire project may take 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned for more information as the project moves forward in time for the Spring and Summer seasons..
