Just got the power back on
Just got the power back on from Irma! I don’t know how people lived in Florida before Air Conditioning. I’m worn out from very little sleep over the last 5 days but I’ll do my best to give an update. The Betmar Club and the Zephyrhills Club are undamaged. We don’t know about the Lakeland Club yet. Dean Myklejord called a 2nd time this morning because the City of Lakeland won’t let them into the City Park to check the Courts. They have liability concerns from damage in the park. Betmar will host the Mingles/Singles Tournament on Monday as planned but Thursday is up in the air. We may need to move it to Betmar. Dean will make that call as soon as he can but he doesn’t expect to know anything until sometime next week. We will keep you advised on the shuffler web site and the Zephyrhills web site.
The eye of Irma came directly over Betmar as a category 1 Hurricane according to the New York Times which published the official path. We were just plain LUCKY!
