Beech Dam
The County met onsite last week to look at Beech Dam, as there has been a reported seepage for years. The County has finally agreed to fix the leak. Several engineers were onsite to assist with the investigation. Miss Utility will be out to mark all areas before any work begins. The County will contact the Association with a full report before they begin drilling or installing any pipes for observation.

Out of service weight machines
In order to ensure there is at least 6 feet of space between members when using the weight machines, every other machine has been placed out of service. We are alternating which ones are out of service weekly.
We have been having regular issues with members ignoring or removing the signs to use their favorite machines. Do not remove the signs and use the out of order machines. The six feet spacing is a re-opening requirement. If your favorite machine is out of service, please ask one of our trainers for alternate exercises to try.
 
Social Distancing on the gym floor
The gym floor has been laid out with social distancing in mind. We have taped off 6 feet box areas for members to stay within, created a walkway and have signs posted regarding social distancing and cleaning your equipment.
The spotting restriction comes directly from the state, copied below... "Facilities must also prohibit the use of equipment requiring more than one person to operate, unless those operating are from the same household (e.g., ...weights when it requires a spotter)." 
Unless you are from the same household, you should workout within your own box area and keep a 6 foot distance as much as possible. This applies even if you are coming to the gym to workout with a buddy.
The four station cable machine does not allow for 6 feet of space between users, so only one member can use it at a time. It's not ideal, but again, it's a space requirement. You can absolutely do a set, step away and allow another member to work in and take turns.
