Thanks for the heads up info. I do know that Branson area does not get much snow, and that is one of the big draws for us. I grew up in Michigan and then lived in Vermont for about 15 years then moved to AZ. I like shoveling sunshine better, so I look forward to a quick melt or not much of it. I also know you can get slieghs with wheels that can easily convert to the runners, so that works for me too. As much as I have loved living in Arizona, I truly miss the 4 seasons AND the really big Thunderstorms! I bet you get some really booming whoppers in Saddlebrooke!

I guess my biggest concern is whether or not I can teach piano there or not. That will most likely be the determining factor. I will be very disappointed if I can't!

Looks like I will have to contact Tyler Lorance directly myself for a couple of clarifications.

I really do love Saddlebrooke though!

Thanks,

B8oven

Oh, and I assume you make a great chili, Mrschilicook? I make a great cabbage chili myself.

Has the community pulled together and done things like Chili cook-offs or Bar-B-Q's for everyone in the community?

We have had a couple of neighborhood chili cook-off events here.
I'm not so much a chili cook as my husband was. He cooked in the
Nevada State finals one year and we have judged the same event a couple of times when we lived in the West. I can make a mean chili, but I was married to a serious chili man.

Cabbage chili?

We have been considering Saddlebrooke for some time now and will from time to time drive through there. We have recently noticed that the grounds are not in the same condition as they were a couple of years ago. We have seen trash on the ground, grass longer, the wood stumps left in the grills, the fish food taken out and the biggest one that bothers my husband is all of the gravel that have been dumped in the water areas and also along the road. You can't even see the fish when you look over the bridge. Now when you are standing at the top of the bridge and looking over all you see is a BUNCH of gravel/rocks that have been dumped in. It is still a pretty place overall, but isn't it a bit worrisome that theses things are happening and it's really a newly developed area?!

It's still being well cared for, however, there have been some vandals doing a number on things down at the park. The gravel (I assume you mean near the parking areas?) was a result of the flooding a year or two ago. They have
been trying to minimize the damage by rising water at the parks. You must have just hit it right to see longer grass, etc. The developer still mows once a month or so....it depends on the rain, heat, etc. This past year was tough for everyone (even lawns) with the heat. I was just down at the park and could still see the fish, but Bull creek has developed a sand bar in the middle of it. No one actually dumped gravel...it was the work of mother nature. Like most developments, it's up to the residents to clean up after theirselves. I haven't seen a particular diffference in trash or wood in the grills, but you may just been there at the right (wrong?) time.

Thank you for taking time to respond to me. I'm not talking about the sand bar that sits across from the bridge. I am referring to the large area of small rocks that have been dumped in right under the bridge.

I do agree with you about how it is the responsibility of each resident to clean up after themselves, but if they don't, then it seems to be left. Anytime we have been there, there seems to be trash of some sort in the grills. Whether it be large tree stumps, beer bottles, beer boxes, plastic bags, cigarettes. I was just wondering about this because it wasn't like this when we first started visiting Saddlebrooke. It's a shame that people that don't live there are able to have such free access to destroy the appeal of such a lovely development.
