    Tennis Anyone? With twelve beautiful clay courts and a newly renovated Pro Shop

    and bleacher system, Spring Lake Tennis is offering tennis promotions you can’t refuse – a one month free trial membership to all Hilton Head Plantation property owners who have lived in HHP for less than two years and who have not been previous Spring Lake Tennis Club annual members. By trying the tennis for a month, we hope you will find it a very enjoyable, fun-filled experience.

    During the free trial membership month, you may participate in our weekly round robins on Mondays and Fridays as well as our monthly round robins on Saturday. Our Tennis Social Committee puts together this outstanding monthly event that has a different theme each month. The round robins are lots of fun and a great way to meet people.

    If you want something a little more competitive, Spring Lake Tennis is very active in the USA Team Tennis Programs with eleven teams presently competing in the fall local league. Every year we send teams to the State Championship, and in 2003 Spring Lake had the National Championship’s winners.

    For current Spring Lake Tennis members, we have incentives for you too. Sign up a new individual member and receive $50 off your membership in 2005. Sign up a couple and receive $75 off next year’s membership.

    Our third promotion will be an Open House on the 1st Tuesday of the month in December, January, February, and March. Just call the Pro Shop up to the day before the specific Tuesday to book two hours of free court time. Again, this is open to any Hilton Head Plantation property owner, Bear Creek Golf Club member, or Dolphin Head Golf Club member.

    Want to perfect your game? Are you a beginner at tennis? In either case, Spring Lake Tennis has two – very popular – certified Tennis Professionals both named Keith – one is Italian and the other one is tall. Both are very skilled, patient, and have a great sense of humor.

    So, is there any reason not to try out our very own Spring Lake Tennis Club? Get off the couch, put down your rake, put the vacuum cleaner away, and come out to meet (and beat) our friendly and enthusiastic group of tennis players.

    Any questions? Just give the Spring Lake Tennis Pro Shop a call at 681-3626. Tennis is for everyone!

    President’s Report______________ On behalf of the Hilton Head Plantation Conservancy Foundation,

    we recently asked for contributions to rebuild the Boardwalk in the Whooping Crane Pond Conservancy, and the response has been good. As of November 1st, we have received approximately $25,000. If you are a contributor, we thank you. Our goal is $100,000 and hope if you have not as yet submitted your Tax- Deductible Contribution, you will do so soon. Our conservancies are valuable amenities, and we need to keep them in good shape.

    Now for some highlights from our October 26th Board Meeting: • In an effort to bolster the membership of the Spring Lake

    Tennis Facility, the Board approved the recommendation of the Recreation Committee that tennis privileges be extended to residents of Palmetto Hall Plantation. Palmetto Hall has only two hard surface courts and several of their residents now play at Spring Lake as guests. Those residents may now join Spring Lake and pay a higher fee than HHP residents. Earlier this year the Board opened Spring Lake Tennis membership to former residents of HHP and to non- resident members of Dolphin Head and Bear Creek Golf Clubs.

    • The Board met with representatives of the Security Committee to discuss the need for a possible expansion of the Cypress Gate. Conceptual drawings were reviewed, and problems associated with land easements, staffing for an expanded gate, traffic issues, and the significant costs for expanding that facility were discussed. An alternative suggestion was to close the Cypress Gate on a trial basis to visitors requiring a printed pass and direct them to the Main Gate. Before proceeding further, the Board has asked the Security Committee to ascertain how many visitor passes are issued daily at the Cypress Gate and the time of day when most of such passes are issued. If this alternative is tried, it would not effect the distribution of pre-printed passes to golf clubs, restaurants, the marina, etc.

    • The Board approved revisions to the ARB and General Committee Guidelines.

    • It was agreed to solicit bids from CPA firms for the 2005 Annual Audit, and the Finance Committee was asked to develop a proposal for the possible expansion in scope of future audits.

    • The Board noted with pleasure that with the planned 2.34% increase in the 2005 Assessment, the average increase for the past five years is only 2.2%. Prior years were substantially higher.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    General Manager’s Report_________ Criminal Activity

    As you may have read in the local print media, a suspect has been arrested for several incidents of voyeurism and burglary. The Sheriff’s Department continues to sort through quite a bit of evidence that may lead to additional charges.

    A break came in the case when a piece of evidence tied Mr. Levy to a Sea Pines incident. After a warrant was obtained to search his home, additional evidence was obtained that led to the charge of burglary stemming from a break-in in HHP in 1998. We will keep you posted as the Sheriff’s investigation continues.

    We wish to thank the Beaufort County’s Sheriff’s Office for their work in bringing about this arrest. We also want to thank all of the HHP residents who supplied our Security Officers with information. Your contributions were and will continue to be invaluable.

    Despite this arrest, please do not become complacent and continue to follow the tips that were outline in the August 2004 edition of Plantation Living that included the following self-evaluation:

    • Do I lock my doors whether I am home or not? • Do I keep my garage door closed when the garage is not in

    use? • Do I lock my car when it is left in the driveway? • Do I keep
