BTCI Annual Meeting is This Sunday (October 8 at 2:00 p.m.)

The meeting will be held in the Club Tamarack Rec Room and is open to all members of Bent Tree Community, Inc.  The annual meetings are usually pretty short; for example, the 2014 meeting was called to order at 2:00 and adjourned just 10 minutes later.  Last year’s meeting was longer because there was a tie in the board election.  This year, there are only three candidates for the three spots, so there is no vote.  But, the meeting will be the first opportunity most members have to meet the new General Manager (who begins work the following day, Monday October 9).

A Wolf Would Have Been Exciting

In late August, there was a rumor that a wolf had been sighted on the back nine of the golf course.  A couple of weeks ago, for a split second, I almost became a believer.  An animal ran out of the woods on hole 12. It was bigger than a coyote and sure looked like a wolf running around.  It finally stood still and I grabbed my camera.  No wolf…but a really cool looking dog (with a collar).

Fencing for Greener Pastures

Horses enjoying mealtime just beyond where the new pasture will be

At the request of the Equestrian Committee, Lake & Wildlife volunteers will be working this morning to install fence rails (on already installed posts) to make a new pasture area for the horses. The picture below shows just a small section of the posts.  The cost of the materials is included in this year’s capital budget.
