New Business: the owner and the staff are having trouble with the guest badges. Homeowners are giving
their badges to people that are not staying with them. Also, when a homeowner sells a place, the Seller are
not returning them to the office. The Board and the employees recognize the badges of the nonresidents and
we have taken them away. The Owner has asked us to change the Rules and Regulations to avoid such
problems. The proposed Rules and Regulation change states “All Homeowners must be present with their
guests while they use the facilities, or available within the park for immediate contact”. Homeowners are not
permitted to hand out their owner badges or guest badges to other people for use when they are not in
residence at Desert Crest Country Club. A motion to accept was made and passed.
Any Recognitions: None
Any Correspondence needing discussion. None
