Wrecking Crew Seeking Volunteers


The Black Point Beach Club Association (BPBCA) Wrecking Crew (WC) is a loosely formed voluntary work group, operating under the direction of Board of Governors (BOG) Emeritus member Will Fountain (203 815-6757), who volunteer their time to assist in various projects to maintain, improve and beautify our Association in a cost saving manner.

The Wrecking Crew consists of members and friends of the BPBCA who volunteer their time and efforts on a case-by-case basis to complete various projects. Having a large pool of volunteers is a necessity as frequently we have very short notice on some of our missions and having a strong bench of volunteers has saved the day on more than one occasion.  Another great strength of the Wrecking Crew has been the wide range of knowledge and experience that individual volunteers have brought to the table on some of the projects we have undertaken. 

Anyone interested in becoming a Wrecking Crew volunteer please send a text to Will Fountain at (203) 815-6757 and you will be added to our register of volunteers. The standard WC procedure is that when the need arises, a group message is sent out to everyone and anyone who is available and wishes to participate responds. There is never any pressure to respond to messages or work on any projects.   

Examples of Wrecking Crew projects this past year have included:

Assembling and installing the Gaga ball pit at the Clubhouse

Building, securing, and repairing, when necessary, the BPBCA Kayak racks 

Moving Kayaks and small watercraft from harm’s way when storms pop up.

Maintaining & Repairing the BPBCA boat launch, docks, and ramps 

Preparing proposals and obtaining permits to mark the rocks off the boat launch Maintaining & Repairing the BPBCA swim area markers and floats.

Assembling and installing equipment and benches at the Clubhouse 

Fall leaf removal at the clubhouse, pickle ball, tennis, and bocce ball courts.

Devising specs, obtaining permits & installing the new White Cap storage building 

Assembling and installing the beach access equipment for wheelchairs 

Cleaning and maintaining the Billow Road storage area.

The Wrecking Crew takes its name from an anonymous collection of Los Angeles based session musicians during the 60’s and 70’s who were responsible for several hundred top 40 hits. These anonymous musicians worked invisibly behind the scenes to achieve greatness.
