For those of you who have not seen the coverage in the local press, it was quite an opening day, with people lined up early in the morning to be the first through the doors, with goodie bags and saver cards for the first 300 visitors. If you have not yet been to check it out, then today is your day! On Wednesday 13th November, Whole Foods South Lake Tahoe is donating 5% of all their sales revenue to the Club. We are so excited to have created this partnership and to be chosen as one of Whole Foods' local charities. Indeed, we have been extremely impressed by how Whole Foods have approached local charitable giving with the opening of a store here.
Yes, Halloween is here and now that you've spent a small fortune on a costume (seriously an old sheet with cut out holes for eyes was good enough for us!), your paycheck on candy, and started to google Thursday's temps every other hour - you are finally ready to hit the streets and scare some ghosts away.
On Monday October 14th the Club held the 26th Annual Golf Classic at Edgewood Tahoe. The event sold out weeks in advance and players were greeted with bright blue skies and perfect greens for a great day of golf.
Good news for anyone that has had to wade through deep water and ice to pick up their child from the Club or any of the pre-schools based at Al Tahoe - the parking lot is getting a face lift. Thomas Hain and Company are currently employed by LTUSD to expand the drainage capacity for the parking lot and prevent the large water build up we have seen over past winters. The parking lot will also be regraded to create a downhill slope towards the drain that will help with water run-off. However, they will not be able to eradicate the big dip in the far side of the lot as that is caused by tree roots.
