    For anyone interested, Alan Murphy is having a Zoom format seminar on Topaz products October 19 at 5pm our time. It costs $19.99, but it looks like if you use the code ALANM15 at checkout, you can get an additional 15% off.

    Hi Folks,

    Yesterday I sent you an email about the RUA Agreement on which HOA 2 is currently voting. At the time I wrote that, the effect on clubs within SaddleBrooke proper was unclear. However, since that time, Mark Echardt an HOA 2 resident asked that specific question to HOA 2 Board member Joyce Howard, and here is her response:

    From: Joyce Howard <joyce.howard@sbhoa2.org>

    Subject: Re: question on RUA

    To: mark eckardt <markeckardtaz@gmail.com>

    Mark,

     Our CC&Rs do not allow use of our amenities by nonmembers, the exceptions being those open to the paying public and those covered under an RUA.  If there is no RUA, those amenities that we have open to the paying public  (restaurants, golf courses and theater) will remain available to HOA1 homeowners.  All other amenities, meeting rooms, arts and crafts rooms, fitness centers and pools will not be available to HOA1 homeowners.

    We obtained a legal review of the roads issue.  All roads would continue to be available to all with no payments by one HOA to the other HOA for use of the roads.

     I could not find the town hall recording on the website either.  I am looking into it.

     Thanks,

     Joyce

    While our club holds its meetings in the HOA 1 Coyote room, we do use some HOA 2 facilities such as the monitors in the Bistro, and rooms for our SIG (Photoshop/LR and Wildlife) meetings and our breakfast meetings. So, our continued use of those could be in jeopardy. Moreover, if “cooler heads” don’t prevail, it is not unreasonable to see similar punitive actions by HOA 1 relative to the use of their facilities.

    Obviously, this important information should have been made public to HOA 2 residents prior to putting the matter up to a vote by the membership. Unfortunately, that was not done, and you should consider it before voting. If you’ve already voted, and this information would have changed your decision as to how you voted, I would strongly encourage you to contact the HOA 2 Board.

    Sincerely,

    John Triebe

    Hi Folks,

    I’m writing to you as President of our club because there is an issue that some of you will be voting on, as residents of SaddleBrooke of HOA #2, that might have an impact on not only our club, but every one of the 100 or so clubs in SaddleBrooke. I’m referring to the Reciprocal Use Agreement (RUA) that the HOA’s have hammered out, and which must be voted on by some members by September 8. 2021. As I understand it, HOA #1 residents do not need to vote on the RUA because their Board has already approved it, but the HOA #2 Board has put it to a vote of their membership.

    We are currently a club of 106 members, and while I don’t know how many reside in HOA#1 or in HOA#2, I would guess that it is probably pretty evenly split between the two HOA’s. As some of you may be aware, when the SaddleBrooke Ranch and SaddleBrooke split a couple years ago, we were forced to remove several members who lived at SaddleBrooke Ranch from our membership. That was indeed a sad day, because these people were not only contributors to our club, but they were friends too.

    I hope that no matter how the vote on the RUA goes, cooler heads will prevail when it comes to how that might impact club membership. I would hate to lose my friends from HOA #1 from our club, and I would guess my HOA#1 friends feel the same way about our HOA #2 members.

    Of course there is no way of knowing what might happen to club memberships if the new proposed RUA is not accepted by the HOA #2 membership, and I don’t want to speculate. I also don’t want to recommend voting either way. But I would be remiss in my position of President of this Club if I did not point out a possible “worst case” scenario.

    Thanks for your attention to this matter.

    Sincerely,

    John Triebe

    · The SBHOA One webmaster wants to set up a “stock” photo file of Saddlebrooke images and he has asked for Photographers of SaddleBrooke help. Photographs may be taken of anything in SaddleBrooke, regardless of HOA. Please submit photographs of anything that makes you feel good about living in SaddleBrooke. Photographs of “happy people doing fun things”, would also be great.

    · Please submit no more than ten photographs in one upload.

    · Photographs will only be used on or in HOA Electronic and/or print Publications. Other possible uses will require the photographer’s permission before use.

    · Photographs should be 300 DPI jpeg’s, not smaller than 1920 X1080. The larger the better.

    · Submitted photographs may be re-sized and cropped by the WebMaster to meet layout needs.

    · HOA One will credit individual photographers and Photographers of SaddleBrooke.
