Notice of June 9th, 2020 Zoom Test Run


There will be a practice ZOOM meeting Tuesday evening June 9th at 7 PM to test the feasibility of voting remotely using ZOOM as well as ironing out any wrinkles that may occur.   You would be encouraged to attend as our elections will be held at the end of this month and we want all who want to participate to be able to do so.  There will be a sample question to be voted on to be sure all votes are tabulated.


We hope we will not have to avail ourselves of ZOOM, but we do need some means to vote.  Hopefully, on June 20th, the governor will be pleased with the first stage of reopening and allow us to vote by ballot dropped off at the clubhouse.  We await his policy decision.



**contact info regarding tuning in to the practice session is forthcoming.**

Current Status of the 4th of July Parade

July 4 parade on hold
To the members of Black Point,
On Thursday, May 28, the Board of Governors passed a motion to have the July 4 parade,  given modifications for social distancing.  Unfortunately, we have erred.  At this time such an event is in violation of standing Executive Orders of Connecticut and the recommendations from the Department of Health.
However, as Connecticut reopens, this may change.  The board will re-address this at the regular meeting of June 25 in light of any new changes (Phase 2 of CT re-open will be addressed by the governor on June 20).
As with most issues related to the pandemic, we will all need to wait and see.  Thank you for your patience.
Cheryl Colangelo, BOG Chair


 Changes in BPBCA meeting schedule:


The annual meeting of May 30 is cancelled.

 However, the regular Board of Governors meeting of May 28 will be held remotely at 6 PM.  Agenda to follow.  Public comments will be heard at this meeting.   Call in number: 425-436-6363, access code: 436260


There will be a special meeting, held remotely, to fill two Board of Governors positions on Saturday, June 27, as per CT Executive Order 7OO.  Details will be posted in the near future, once the procedures for participating and voting remotely have been established.

Meeting & Information Announcement

Update on membership meetings meetings and COVID19 news related to beaches
Meetings:  There will be another special BOG meeting on Thursday, May 21, and a regular BOG meeting on Thursday, May 28.  Watch the website www.blackpointbeachclub.com  for postings of times, agendas, and teleconference access number.  Public comments will be heard at the regular meeting on May 28.  Please continue to email concerns and questions to bog@blackpointbeachclub.com before then.
Budget:  The annual membership meeting has been postponed indefinitely.  As you may know, the BOG was directed to to adopt a budget without a public vote by Executive Order 7I.  The board proposed a budget and mill rate (see minutes of April 23 meeting), which it will vote to adopt on May 28.  However, this budget was proposed before potential expenses related to COVID could be considered, so it is possible that there will be discussion and modification of the proposed budget before voting to adopt on May 28.
Elections to Board of Governors  (2 seats): The governor has determined (Executive Order 7OO) that municipalities and quasi-municipal corporations ( BPBCA) must hold elections of officials between the dates of June 27 and June 30, using remote means if possible, and that no other business can be addressed at that meeting. The Board will discuss the procedures necessary for this process and inform the membership via the website.
Beaches: DEEP will publish a detailed operations plan early this week that municipalities may adapt to their needs, which will be published online at www.ct.gov/DEEP/Parks.  In addition, we expect an update of executive orders related to COVID,  that are effective until at least May 20, by that date.
Please keep in mind, as we all try to balance recreation with safety, that facemasks “are meant to protect other people in case you are infected” (CDC, April 24).   (CDC, April 24). This practice is for the good of our friends and neighbors.  Let’s all try to take care of ourselves and each other this summer.
