Overview: This was the biggest flood recorded for our area. The Sands has flooded four times since 1987. Three have been all-time records. We have been through this before. I am tired of setting records but in everything we do we understand that flooding is a possibility. Our sand came out of the river and the river came back for a visit. It can't have our sand. It's ours now and we like to play on it.

Monday Update: Today the chairs and firewood were rounded up. As seen on TV8 the pressure-washing of chairs has started. We only have about 200 more to do. (Yes, I looked like I am tired and went to bed with wet hair. If I had known I was going to be on TV, I would have showered again in the morning and brought a clean shirt.)  The windows were washed. On the courts some of the silt has dried up into thin, little curls. The curls were swept up and hauled away. Tuesday the rest of the courts should be ready to be swept. The outfields are recovering nicely but need mowing.  Thank you to the volunteers. We appreciate the help and it was nice to have dinner and a couple of beers on the patio. If anyone one would like to help us recover from the record flood of 2015 please text Wendy at 238-9570.  We are at the point we can use some bodies. We will need help washing furniture and cleaning courts.   Mike
