FORESTRY MEETING

_____________________________________________________________

5/12/22

Notice:

 

Due to the labor shortages that RRPOA is experiencing, similar to other businesses, we are strongly urging that members renew their membership online.  This is going to be especially important to do with the upcoming Memorial Day holiday.  At this time we will not have to staff to process memberships at the gate expeditiously.  If you have to renew your membership at the gate during the Memorial Day holiday please expect to wait in long lines depending on the time of day you do this.  Our staff will be limited and will focus on signing in members that have current memberships.

 

Please note that if you renew your membership online, our remote workers generally work M-T, Th-Sat and generally start after 12:00 noon and work until 8pm.  If you do your membership outside those hours then it will have to wait until the next day.  That is why we ask that you give 24-48 hours to process the membership.  Instructions on how to purchase a membership online can be found by going to RRPOA.net and clicking on “Renew or start a membership” button or you can click on the following link to go directly to that page: https://rrpoa.net/pages/faq.  Once memberships are purchased a confirmation email is sent and in that email it states that the membership will not be processed until all the required paperwork is signed.  This paperwork is required whether you do the membership online or at the gate.  Once the membership is processed another email will be sent from “remotegate@rrpoa.net” stating that the membership is good to go.  If you do not receive that email then they are still processing the membership.

 

Please note that we will also be emailing members who are expired or are going to expire to advise them about their membership so that we can make the process as quick as possible for members to come through the gate.  We appreciate your understanding as we try to continue working the gate with limited staff as best as we can.  Also if there are any members that are willing to volunteer during the Memorial Day weekend at the gate, they can contact Ms. Sandy.

The new Check In Shed is up and running.  We are proud to say that this shed runs 100% on solar power with a backup generator.  This shed will be open as needed on Friday afternoons into the evening, Saturday morning into the afternoon and Sunday morning.  It will also be used on holiday weekends to speed up the check in process and actually has a check in window at both sides of the shed to allow for two lines of vehicles to check in.  We are asking members to completely drive around the loop to go to the shed so that you do not come at the shed at an angle.  We are asking that you have your ID's and/or member card out and ready to give to the employee at the shed to check you in to speed up the process.  If you need to purchase anything at the gate, please just park in the field and do not go through the line for the check in shed.  This is a drive up shed and members will not need to exit their vehicles to sign in.  There may be a few glitches are we are getting used to this new process and we hope for your understanding.

RRPOA is tentatively going to allow brothers and sisters on the family pass. This is in addition to children and parents that are allowed to come in on the family pass. We are requiring that you upload all the documents such as the birth certificates, marriage licenses, Driver’s license, etc to you online account. If this is not uploaded to the online account prior to the sibling coming out then they will be turned away at the gate. You can also email these documents to onlinestore@rrpoa.net. For the sibling you will need your birth certificate and you siblings birth certificate, marriage license if either of your names have changed and driver’s license for both you and your sibling.
If you are going to take a sibling to RR on the family pass we are asking you to also email onlinestore@rrpoa.net. Our remote employee is going to input all their information into our family pass database upon approval of the documents sent. So when the sibling comes out for the first time if they are in the system the gate knows they are approved and can sign in quicker. If they are not in the family database then the gate will not allow them to come in. The remote employee will send the member an email upon approval of the sibling so they will know all is good. If the member does not receive this email then the sibling is not good to come in.
If this becomes too troublesome for the gate because people do not upload documents in advance then we will not allow siblings on this pass, so please make sure that you upload prior to coming out. Please upload or email these documents at least 48 hours prior to coming to River Ranch. Hopefully this trial goes well for everyone and appreciate your support and understanding.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
It is with a heavy heart that we would like to inform our membership that our president Pete Edwards passed away yesterday. Out of respect for his family we have delayed notifying the membership until we had given them a moment to catch their breath and start to deal with their grief. They have just given their blessing to post this notification. Pete Edwards has been involved with this association for over 40 years and loved River Ranch dearly. He was always willing to talk to members and resolve any and all situations to the best of his ability. We are tremendously grieved to make this announcement and at this time are trying to process this as well.
RRPOA Board

 




Effective immediately RRPOA is changing our policy regarding guests/family that have not been signed out. Previously our policy was to send two warning letters and then suspend guest/family privileges on the third time a members does not sign them out.

Now members who do not sign out their guest/family after one time will have their privileges suspended until they come to a board meeting to resolve their situation.

If members have questions or would like to discuss further they may contact their director or attend the next board meeting.

Sincerely,
RRPOA Board of Directors

During the Board Meeting on October 19th 2019 the Board adopted new rules for the size of trailers allowed through the gate. For the purpose of this regulation “Trailers” shall include, mobile homes, campers and any other shed like structure manufactured or custom built.

Members will be allowed to enter through the gate for purpose of bringing a trailer to their own deeded private property or on River Ranch property with previous board approval as described below.

The trailer must meet two criteria:

1). The trailer cannot exceed 12’ wide measuring the outer width dimension of the vertical wall of the trailer. The 12’ wide is being restricted due to the size of our gate.

AND

2). The trailer cannot exceed 400 Total Square Feet regardless of the length.

The method for calculating the total square feet of the trailer to ensure approval is as shown in the below mathematical equation.



The width of the trailer _________________

Multiplied by the length of the trailer __________________

Equals Total Square Feet = __________________ Square Feet

See Example Below


The width of the trailer 10 Feet

Multiplied by the length of the trailer 40 Feet

Equals Total Square Feet = 400 Square Feet


NOTICE

RRPOA will be implementing a digital sign-in program in August. The tentative date for this implementation will be August 12, 2019. Members, spouses and disabled dependents will no longer sign in using the log books. You will still need to come to front gate but will give your card to employees at the gate and they will sign you in digitally and provide a receipt for the sign in. Please note that this is a work in progress and we will fine tune this as we move forward. Further implementation will include tablets so we can be mobile and sign people in at other locations other than the front gate office.

Please note that children between 16 thru 20 will need to sign in using the books. Also note that guests that have signed in for the weekend and leave with a member to go to town and come back will still need to sign in using the books.

We have moved toward this new sign in program to hopefully make the sign in process a little easier on members and to provide more accurate information for insurance purposes. We respectfully request members' patience while we implement this process. We fully expect minor changes to procedures as we work through this implementation and will keep members updated regarding any changes.
