October Member Letter 

Dear TCLS Family,

Welcome to FALL Y’All! October is going to be a GREAT MONTH at the Club! We continue to add new Members as our friends, family and co-workers learn all that The Club at Lake Sinclair has to offer. We have added another 12 new Members in September to bring a total of 122 new members for the first 9 months of 2021! Remember, any current Member who refers a new Member will receive a $200 referral fee!

As we grow, it is critical that our many long-time Members reach out to our new Members to make them feel welcomed. One of the best and most unique parts of our Club are our Members. In an effort to help all our Members to get to know each other better, please remember to go to our website www.tcls.club and set up your member profile. We ask that you include your picture as this will help new Members and employees as our family continues to grow. Tell us about your children, grandchildren, amazing fur babies etc., share your favorite pictures, let us know what makes you…YOU! All Members who complete their profile will be entered into a drawing for one free month’s dues!

With so many new Members, the Leadership Team is in the process of creating their biographies that will be posted on our Face Book Page and our website. We are so fortunate to have such a great team and are excited to get to know each of our 450 members!

To celebrate all of our wonderful Members, we are hosting a Member Appreciation Masquerade Ball on Saturday, October 30, 2021! We have the entire Club reserved, including Aubri Lanes for our Members to enjoy an Authentic Masquerade Ball! This event will be one for the ages featuring the well-known Atlanta Band “Party Nation” and an array of Chef Attended Action Stations throughout the entire building. We ask that all Members consider attending this signature Event, being held in your Honor!

As our Club Family grows, we continue to limit non-member activity to ensure that our Members have unlimited opportunities to enjoy YOUR Club. To insure we can properly serve our Members, effective September 1, 2021 Sunday Brunch was limited to exclusive service for Members Only and their invited guests. Jason Medders, our partner and Owner of Aubri Lanes has graciously agreed to turn away business! Jason and his team need your support for our Member Only Sunday Brunch. Please invite your friends and family to Sunday Brunch often so we can continue to offer Sunday Brunch exclusively to our Members! Lack of Member support for Sunday Brunch might make a policy reversal necessary.

Additionally, beginning in 2022, we will limit non-member golf rounds to (2) two per year. As members, you support all our positive change your dues. As the saying goes, “why buy the cow when the milk is free?” Too many people have been enjoying Member’s Milk. In 2022, we will let non-members try the milk twice, then we will ask them to buy the cow!

Please congratulate Jess Norton, (50-59) Rick Franzman, (60-69) and Glen Cullars (70+) as Senior Club Champions! Leonard Lewis was the Division #2 70+ low gross winner. Tom Drew, Walt Sammons, Bill Eason and Owen Kelly all finished as Net Champions for their respective divisions. Congratulations to all who participated and thanks to David Franklin for managing the tournament!

Finally folks, this will be my last update on my personal health issue! God has blessed me beyond belief. My beautiful wife and daughter, a great family, countless friends and my dream job working for and serving awesome people! I can’t begin to thank each of you for your prayers and well wishes! All prayers have been answered!

On Monday, September 13, the Docs at MD Anderson in Houston Texas completed a 6 hour surgery to remove a Stage 3 4cm x 4cm+ (golf-ball sized) tumor from my left tonsil. The tumor had grown larger than they had anticipated, but with the skills that God had blessed them, they were able to remove the entire tumor, (plus a little tongue and soft palette). They also removed 42 lymph nodes. The pathology report came back last week indicating I am Cancer Free! With an abundance of caution, so we can confidently put this behind us, we have decided to complete a 6 week course of radiation treatment. Thanks to all who spoke to God for me, while I don’t deserve his grace, God has answered our prayers.

Thanks to Ted & Joni and our entire Club Family for allowing me to do what I love and thanks to God for allowing me to continue serving our Family and our Community for years to come!
