It’s a Whole New Ball Game

Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc. (BTCPI) is the corporate entity established earlier this year to serve as the brokerage for Bent Tree Community Inc.’s (BTCI) plunge into the real estate business.

Those in attendance at yesterday’s BTCI Board meeting were given the opportunity to sit in on the first ever stockholder meeting of BTCPI.  BTCI is currently the sole stockholder (500 shares) of BTCPI stock. The initial/current board of BTCPI consists of the directors of the 2018 board of BTCI, so those directors were the ones participating in this first meeting.  Two actions were taken at the meeting.  The first was to approve the steps taken so far to set up the new corporation (Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, etc).  The second action set forth the structure of BTCPI’s Board beginning in 2019.  There will be seven directors:  The four officers of the 2019 BTCI Board will be members of the 2019 BTCPI Board (not necessarily as officers of BTCPI…but directors).  The chair of the 2019 Land Analysis and Development Committee and the chair of the 2019 Architectural Committee will also be directors.  The final director will be Gil Lewis, the broker.  His agreement includes the provision that he will be the Vice President of Bent Tree Community Properties, Inc.  It’s a whole new ball game, but with some of the same players.

Hunting for Quarry at the Quarry


1.  a place, typically a large, deep pit, from which stone or other materials are or have been extracted.
2.  game or prey; specifically: game hunted with hawks

The photos above and below were taken at the quarry on Sunday.  Both definitions of the word came to mind when the hawk turned to stare at me.

Board Meeting Tomorrow Morning (November 27 @ 9:00)

The agenda for Tuesday’s Board of Directors Meeting is available on the official Bent Tree website.  There are a lot of interesting items on the agenda, including some “Old Business” that I must’ve missed whenever it was first discussed as “New Business”.

Property owners may attend/observe Board meetings, but cannot participate in the discussions.  If a property owner wants to address the Board about something, whether or not it is on the agenda, they may sign up before the meeting to speak at Open Forum.  Click here for information on How Open Forums Work.

Moon Nest

The almost full moon was beautiful on Wednesday and Thursday.  The clouds and rain moved in yesterday, blocking a view of the full moon.   My view of the moon on Wednesday included a lot of trees, but it made for an interesting shot.  It looks like the moon is sitting in a big nest.

Five Years and Counting…

Today marks a half-decade since the Architectural Committee approved two “new construction” packages for Bent Tree Partners, LLC.  The photos below, of the two projects, were taken this week.  It looks like another portajohn has fallen victim to the strong winds.
