FROM THE PRESIDENT
By now, you should all have received the CSPOA Golf Course Survey, which
was mailed to all members last week. For the past 30 years, deed restrictions
in the original transfer documents have prohibited subdivision of the
Golf Course property. Those restrictions expire at the end of next year
-- after that the property could be developed for residential housing.
The purpose of this survey is to make all of our members aware of that
possibility and to solicit your input. By voting yes, you will be directing
your POA board to conduct a thorough and professional investigation of
the possible methods of acquiring the course property. Any recommendations
developed as a result of that study would be subject to a vote of the
entire membership before implementation. The Ad-hoc committee formed by
Town of Carolina Shores has recommended that the Town should not pursue
the possibility of purchasing the course. We urge all of you to return
the survey as soon as possible and to include any comments or suggestions.
We need to hear from you whether your response is for or against. By making
your wishes known, you will help your Board to better serve you.
Mike Mundy, President
RECREATION COMMITTEE REPORT
The July 4th Picnic was a big success. Thanks to those who contributed
to the “Sharing Table” sponsored by the New Friends. This
will be a regular part of future picnics. Of course none of this would
happen without all the people who lend their time and muscles setting
things up and cleaning up at the end. We could use more help in these
areas. The new grill you saw at the picnic was purchased by the POA and
is available for members use at private picnics. It can be reserved at
the POA office for a $50 deposit with $40 refunded if the grill is cleaned
(there is a $10 fee for the gas). The new TV/movie projector at the POA
is also available for resident use. We are working on getting a new outdoor
sound system for use at the picnic area.
ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE UPDATE
In the ACC column last month POA Vice President Al Franklin (who serves
as the board liaison with the ACC) discussed changes in the fine structure
that will affect chronic violators of the Declaration of Restrictions.
It is possible that there may be some confusion concerning the roles that
the ACC and the board play when addressing these situations. Here is the
process: In response to a written complaint concerning a possible infraction
of the Declaration of Restrictions an ACC member conducts a fact-finding
investigation. The ACC then forwards its findings and recommendations,
through the ACC liaison, to the POA Board for possible action. The Board,
not the ACC, imposes all fines. At the ACC’s last meeting, in addition
to approving several requests for alterations, repainting, reroofing etc.,
we approved construction applications for two new homes: 9 Myrtlewood
and 3 Pinewood. A decision on another construction application for a new
home was tabled pending the receipt of additional information.
Recently we have been receiving complaints about unlicensed cars parked
in various places throughout our subdivision. Your Declaration of Restrictions
states that “Any vehicle parked anywhere in Carolina Shores must
be operational, registered and capable of being driven from its parking
area.” This regulation does not cover vehicles in a garage or disabled
vehicles awaiting repairs (which must be accomplished within 48 hours).
Any vehicle not meeting these conditions may be towed by the Association
at the Owner’s expense.
Due to health issues and other commitments the ACC has lost two members.
If you can spare a few mornings a month and are interested in helping
to maintain the wonderful ambiance that makes our community so special,
give the ACC a call or stop in at the POA building.
POA LABOR DAY PICNIC MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3

BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST:
THE SECOND RUNNING OF THE “CAROLINA SHORES DERBY “
The populace at the 4th of July picnic had shown interest in the running
of our Carolina Shores Derby. At the Labor Day Picnic, we will hold the
race again at our track on the picnic grounds. The first race will go
off promptly at 3pm and the second will commence one hour after the finish
of the first. In order to accommodate all players, we ask you to make
your choice ASAP before
the window closes for each race. Be ready to join in the fun. We’ll
need volunteers, jockeys, collectors at the window, judges on the track,
and a crowd to cheer on the riders. The horses from the Balbach Ranch
have been well fed and are ready to go. All we need is a dry track and
the stands full. Come and enjoy.
John M. Russo
Hot and steamy has been the watchword for the past few Thursdays. Game

CHILDREN’S TENNIS A BIG HIT
When you read this, the free tennis lessons provided by Carolina Shores
tennis players for the children & grandchildren of Carolina Shores
will have concluded. This year we had 19 participants, ages 6-14 years
old. It is amazing how quickly the young folks can grasp and use new ideas
and concepts. We had a great time; and one participant had perfect attendance
for all 12 sessions. Thanks to Ruth Anthony & Martin Minder for donating
their time and talent and who, along with the undersigned made up the
"coaching staff". Also, thank you to Martin for donating the
tennis balls and drinks that kept the students hydrated and motivated.
I must say that we have some very talented young people living in Carolina

YOUR CHANCES TO HELP THE HOMEBOUND!!!
Two volunteers are needed to help North Strand Mobile Meals each day of
two different weeks-- Aug 20th -24th and again Sept 3rd -7th. You meet
the Mobile Meals driver and van at 8:45AM at the NMB Bi-Lo parking. He
knows the route. One volunteer sits in front and delivers the hot meal
to each home; the other volunteer sits in back and packs the next basket.
You're normally back to Bi-Lo by about noon. Volunteers should wear comfortable
clothes & shoes and bring a drink. If you have kids or grandkids over
10, I can give them 5 hours of community service credit for their school
or scouting requirements. Helping deliver meals to the homebound helps
make you really appreciate what you have!!! Call me if you can help, 579-1884.
Thanks ahead of time.
