Izilda Venter Lillard is Bent Tree’s new stable master. The stables amenity is one that the new General Manager hopes to “reboot”. The 2018 budget calls for a significant reduction of the amenity’s subsidy (as compared to the projected actual subsidy for this year). Some interesting ideas have been mentioned as ways to reach the goal, and it will be interesting to see how things progress.
The 2018 Approved Budget Is available on the official Bent Tree website (owner login required).

We played golf in Florida a couple of days ago. The alligators are cool to see, but I’ll take Bent Tree’s deer, bear, and turkeys any day.
