We’d like to thank everyone who read the Windyrush capital improvement plan, asked smart questions and, of course, voted. The results are in — 81.5% of those who responded voted “Yes” on the assessment ballot with 18.5% rejecting the measure.
So, we are ready to move ahead with two important capital projects – 1) Build a 35-foot by 24-foot pool pavilion.
2) Replace our aging pool slide. Between the $150/family assessment and club cash reserves, we’re proud to move forward and finance these two important projects.
Pool Pavilion — Construction on the pavilion will begin this week and be completed well ahead of our May 22 pool opening day. It’ll include 3 TVs, 3 ceiling fans, new furniture and many power outlets, too.
Pool Slide — The contract/deposit for the new slide will be signed soon. The old slide will be torn down after the 2021 pool season, and the new slide be installed in October 2021.
Assessments due – With the majority of members voting in favor of the assessment – as explained in the previous newsletter — The Windyrush Bylaws dictate that all full members, including all board members, must pay the approved assessment to maintain membership in the club. That’s $150 per family. (Note: Tennis-only members are exempt from paying this assessment.) Payments are due: April 1.
Payment –An invoice has been sent via QuickBooks for $150.00. (Note: If you’d prefer to pay by check, mail your $150 check to Windyrush, 6441 Windyrush Rd, Charlotte, NC 28226.)

Registration will begin April 1 and run through April 30. Registration will be on www.WindyrushDolphins.swimtopia.com . More information will be sent as we get closer to April 1. For now, if you have questions, we will try to answer them as well as we can.
