As of today, Monday, August 28, 2023, the path of Tropical Storm Idalia remains undefined. At this time, we cannot predict how the event will impact our area. For the most current information regarding the status of Tropical Storm Idalia and how it may affect our state please go to the South Carolina Emergency Management Division’s website at www.scemd.org

Here are a few preventative measures you or your guests can do to protect your unit in the event the storm strengthens…
Remove furniture and items from your balcony and store them inside your unit
Close and lock all sliding doors
Wedge towels between the sliding glass door and the threshold

Dear Valued Owners,
The elevators at Bay Watch Resort are a crucial element of the facilities, and have an expected lifespan of 20 to 25 years. As the buildings were originally constructed in 2001 through 2003, the elevator systems are now reaching their expected life. During the 2023 annual owners meeting, one of the topics that was discussed was a multi-year project addressing the elevators at Bay Watch Resort. The first phase of this project began in 2020 and involved upgrading various hardware components, and that work is being completed this year. The second and final phase of the project is modernization, which entails updating the supporting machinery and controls as well as remodeling the elevator interiors. The cost for the first phase of the project was approximately $950k, while the second phase will cost $3.6M over three years. These costs are paid using the Association’s reserves, which are funded through the monthly dues paid by each owner. This modernization work has become increasingly imperative, as a number of the components that control the elevators are no longer manufactured and can’t be replaced if they fail and are unable to be repaired.
The modernization work will be occurring during the shoulder and slow seasons over the next three years, starting in September each year and ending in May of the following year. Each tower will be modernized in the order that the towers were originally constructed, meaning that tower 1 will be modernized the first year, followed by tower 3 the second year, and then tower 2 and the garage the third year. Only one elevator will be taken offline at a time while the modernization work is being completed. That elevator will be returned to service prior to taking another offline.
Your understanding and patience during these activities is appreciated.

PRELIMINARY ANNUAL MEETING NOTIFICATION
Dear Baywatch Resort Homeowner:
The Annual Meeting of the general membership (all property owners) of Baywatch Resort Homeowners' Association, Inc., (the “Association”), has been tentatively scheduled to be held on Friday, January 26, 2024 commencing at 1:00 p.m. and concluding by 3:00 p.m. If conditions at the time permit, the format will include both in-person and Zoom components, though neither the meeting’s format nor its venue have been determined at this time. The determination of the format and venue will be addressed by the Association’s Board in the future. Once the Board makes its determination the membership will be notified. This notice’s sole intent is to provide the membership with the tentative date and time which has been approved by the Association’s Board of Directors. This notification is not intended to be a substitute for the official Annual Meeting Notice as outlined in the Association’s Master Deed. That notice will be tendered to the membership in accordance with the provisions of the Association’s Master Deed.
The membership should also be aware that one of the activities scheduled to be addressed during the next Annual Meeting will be the election of two members at large to the Board of Directors. The Association’s Board is requesting from the membership their submission(s) of the attached application from those Association members who are interested in being considered for a position on the next Board. Interested members should submit the completed form to [email protected] by December 1, 2023. Two Directors will be elected to serve two-year terms. The Association will hold the election for the selection of these Directors at the next annual meeting on January, 26, 2024.
The Association’s Board also wishes to express to all of the Association members the importance of obtaining a quorum at the next Annual Meeting. Failure to attain a quorum at the next Annual Meeting will only serve to frustrate the Association’s membership in its efforts to conduct the Association’s official business during that meeting. The Board is starting early not only to inform but also asking for the membership’s help in establishing the 51% quorum requirement for the January 26, 2024’s Annual Meeting.
You may also find this document as well as the application form for election to the Board of Directors in the Baywatch section of the RAM website under “Notices”. As the scheduled Annual Meeting date and time approaches, other documents will be tendered to the membership as well as be posted to the website for your consideration.
Should you have any questions regarding this meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me at 843-449-2204. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Dear Valued Homeowners,
The Baywatch Resort Homeowners Association provides a range of services for the members, including internet and telephone service within each unit. When possible, services have been negotiated with multi-year contracts to minimize cost and reduce uncertainty in yearly budgeting. The contracts covering internet and phone services have reached the end of their terms and the Board has negotiated and signed a new contract for these services. The new five-year contract bundles broadband internet and phone services, and is with IPacket Network Texas, LLC. As such, this new contract represents a yearly cost reduction for the Association. This contract will entail several improvements that will occur in the coming months.
Beginning Monday, May 15, 2023, starting in Tower I from the top floor working downward through the entire building, IPacket will be on site and will be entering units to replace various hardware components of the internet and phone systems with new, state-of-the-art fiber optic equipment. This will include the installation of dual band WiFi 6 802.11ax access points in each unit. The work is expected to take three to four weeks to complete for the entire site, and the costs for equipment, installation and maintenance are included in the yearly fee. Service disruptions during the installation process are expected to be minimal. Installation time will take roughly 10-15 minutes per unit. Granting I-packet techs access into your unit by either yourself or your guests is paramount to have this project completed in the upcoming weeks/months. Please make sure the HOA has a working key or code for your unit. Please share this correspondence with your rental company and/or guests.
This new equipment will increase internet speeds for all units to 100MB and will upgrade the wireless internet service to WiFi 6 standards. Individual owners will also have the option to upgrade their unit up to 1GB service through a subscription with IPacket at an additional cost paid directly by the homeowner. Additionally, the new system will bring the building into compliance with the Ray Baum Act, which requires phone systems to provide dispatchable location information when making calls to 911. You or your guests may contact Ipacket with any wifi issues or general questions at 1-877-912-1550.
We hope that the benefits of this change are well received by the members. If there are any questions, please feel free to reach out to RAM.
