4 / 7

In August 1997 it was discovered that an amendment to the by-laws set the number of directors at five instead of seven as had been stated in the original by-laws. At that time the Board was reduced to five from seven.

During the years 1998 through 2002 most efforts and money went into upgrading the apartments, swimming pool area and landscaping. The kitchens of the apartments were redesigned and new cabinets installed. Bathrooms were upgraded by refinishing tubs, showers and vanity areas. New wall covering was installed and ceramic tile replaced carpet in the kitchen, dining areas. Ceiling repairs were made. Some upgrade of furniture was done. The reserve fund was being managed toward the installation of central air-conditioning of the apartments.

In early 1998 RDI Director Sue Bowers was replaced by Bob Lotts. Sue became Director of a new territory headquartered in Wisconsin.

In December, 1998 Bluegreen Resort Management purchased RDI Resort Services, Inc and became the Management Company for PCOA. The same resort manager and staff and Director became Bluegreen employees.  

In 1999 the maintenance fee was increased for the first time in five years. There had been no special assessments.

In November 1999 Bluegreen assigned a new Director, Dale Dobis, to Players Club. He was assisted by Kim Fries. Their office was located in Myrtle Beach, SC.

In 2002 permits were obtained and the installation of central heat/air-conditioning units was started. This project was completed in 2003. The total cost was more than $390,000. This was done without a special assessment.

In 2004 the maintenance fee was increased for the second time in ten years. There had been no special assessments.

During 2004, 2005 and into 2006 almost all furniture, carpets and window dressing was replaced with upgraded items. This was the last of the renovation, remodel and upgrade to the buildings and apartments included in long range planning in the years 1993 and 1994. Early plans were modified as time passed.

Al Natorp left Bluegreen Resorts Management and the position of General Manager of PCOA in 2005.

In November 2005 major repairs to the roof was required.

2006 was started with major pool repair.

Pamela Vernon was hired for the position of General Manager in early 2006.

In January 2006 Bluegreen Resorts Management announced they would not be renewing the PCOA contract past the end of the year due to changes in their business model. Their focus in the future will be on the resorts that are developed by Bluegreen or have potential growth in their Vacation Club. They will provide necessary assistance to Players Club during the year to search and hire a replacement management company.
