Surfrider Beach Club
...Access to Timeshare Vacations on Sanibel Island...
December 02, 2022

Still waiting for insurance initial reports (still within the timeframe that they are required to answer). Maggie is calling and emailing frequently to ask for updates, still no answers back yet.  Not surprising since they still have time and how much damage there is.

John has been trying to contact the engineer who spoke to Sanibel on our behalf and Sanibel authorities. Sanibel can only be contacted via email, they do not take calls yet, so it’s difficult to get answers. Neither have replied, but we continue to try to reach them.

The big claw truck was working next to Surfrider picking up debris on Sunday Nov. 20th.
There is red tide at the island now, lots of dead fish and it smells bad.
The maintenance fees were mailed out on Wednesday, Nov. 23rd, so you should be receiving them any day now. 

The fencing company put the fence up at Surfrider yesterday, Thursday Dec. 1st.

I know it seems like nothing is being done, but I promise you, we are doing everything we can. This area still looks horrible. We were not allowed out to the island until Oct. 19th. So, it really has only been a little over a month that anyone could do anything.  

We finally have our resort number being forwarded to RAL’s office where we are at:  239-472-2161
If you have questions that Lynn and I can answer, please call us and we will do our best.

On a bright note, the Plumeria tree at the resort has survived and is blooming again, along with the Coral bush that was in the little garden area in front of the standard building

The Sanibel causeway will open to the public on Jan. 2nd, 2023 

There are several businesses/restaurants that are open on the island. There is no beach parking anywhere on the causeway or island yet. Surfrider property is not available for anyone to park at, as it has a fence around the entire property. The beaches are not safe to walk on yet, too much debris still in the water and shoreline.
The island still has piles of debris along the roadside, but progress is being made a little at a time.  

Christmas is just around the corner, hard to believe as it is still 80 degrees here. 
I wish I had more to report. I'm hopeful I'll have a more informative update next Friday.

In response to owner questions, we discussed deed backs are more beneficial to owners and association than foreclosures.  All deed backs go through RAL office. Owners can call or email us, and we can send them deed back form.  It must be turned in to us before Dec. 31st, 2022.

The four standard zoom meeting dates for 2023 are

Unless there is a big breakthrough, the emergency meeting may not be reopened until after the holidays.
