Board Of Directors News

Board of Directors News November 2021

By Ian Mitchell | November 1, 2021 |

So here it is, early November. Some members have returned to their midwestern abode, preparing for their next six months of weather challenges. Other fortunate Sandy Piners fly the snowbird route to far warmer climes. Regardless of where you spend the off-season, once you winterize your place in the park, virtually all of us are…

The Lake Corner October 2021

By Ian Mitchell | October 8, 2021 |

During our final board meeting of the season held on September 24, 2021, the Lake Committee once again provided an update of their findings this season. Chairperson Jim Buchanan presented a summary of recommendations to the board to evaluate. Projects ranged from capital to operational projects with some of the major ones being: Rip Rap…

Board of Directors Update October 2021

By Ian Mitchell | October 8, 2021 |

It would be almost impossible to single out a “best” memory of 2021. Having so many wonderful choices is part of what makes our park so special. For me, though, it wasn’t a single event that stood out, rather something that perhaps I’ve noticed before, but never really took the time to actually grasp what…

Board of Directors News August

By Sydney Ritz | July 30, 2021 |

This month’s BOD article will feature a sort of instruction manual. An informative primer for the uninitiated, a reminder for those in the know, and a whack on the noggin for those that known but choose to ignore. And the subject today is alcohol! Now that I have your attention, remember that alcohol use is…

Pool & Ladder

The Pool Committee will be revisiting the survey that was done in 2019 and will actively work on ideas for additional pool/water activity capacity at Sandy Pines. The survey showed that members felt a clear need for additional capacity and we will be working to develop some proposals to present to the membership for consideration.…

Board of Directors News July 2021

By Sydney Ritz | June 30, 2021 |

By Paul Peppel boardofdirectors@sandypines.com Wow, what a difference a year makes. Skimming through some notes from last season, it’s hard to fathom the rigors we were forced to endure because of governmental restrictions. Crazy that the park wasn’t even technically open until June first. Heck, for a spell, in-staters weren’t even allowed to travel to…

Boar of Directors Bio Stephanie Saypannha July 2021

By Sydney Ritz | June 30, 2021 |

My name is Stephanie, I have enjoyed Sandy Pines my whole life. My family has been in the park for forty five years and now my husband and I are raising our kids here during the summer months. We live in Holland with our two girls, Adelyn and Emmi. They attend Holland Christian schools, this…

Board of Directors Scot Wyman Bio July 2021

By Sydney Ritz | June 30, 2021 |

Hello my name is Scot Wyman, I’m running for the board of directors this year. I was first introduced to Sandy Pines in the early 1990’s when my mother and brother bought places in Phase 3, I purchased shortly after that in 1994 (I believe). I was amazed at the size of the park and…

Board of Directors Bio Kelly V. Johnson July 2021

By Sydney Ritz | June 30, 2021 |

Hello. My name is Kelly V. Johnson and I would like to start off by saying thank you to the 600+ members who placed your trust and confidence in me with your votes 3 years ago. Serving on the Sandy Pines Board of Directors can be difficult and time consuming, however, the satisfying reward of…
