GMVB 2020 is CANCELED!

Due to the COVID-19 situation and St. Louis County restrictions, we are canceling Glutton Mud Volleyball 2020 scheduled for Saturday, August 1st.

We will initiate refunds today to those teams that have registered already. Since we’re using new software this year we’re not exactly sure how long that process takes, but it will be started today.  If for some reason we are not able to refund directly to the credit or debit card you paid with, we will contact you for your address and will mail you a check ASAP.

We’re sorry to have to do this but with rising infection rates and regulations from St. Louis County it.  We had hoped that with loosening restrictions during the reopening process that we would have been able to hold GMVB safely.

PIGNIC & June Events Canceled

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the 50th Annual Glutton Memorial Day Pignic has been canceled. The board of directors also canceled all reservations and events scheduled in June.

We’re still hoping that we can have GMVB on August 1. We’ll have a better idea of whether that might happen at or shortly after the board meeting on June 2.

New Deck Progress

A small but dedicated crew has been busy building the foundation and guts of the deck reconstruction in the last few weeks. The two large white pipes are for accessing the pool lights. LED lights will be attached to long pieces of conduit that will go into the pipes all the way to the pool. They can be replaced fairly easily if a light bulb goes out. The pool filter will be located on the concrete slab right next to the flag pole. Click image to enlarge.

Covid-19 Outbreak Updates

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the board of directors has implemented the following changes:

  • Meetings: The April board meeting took place online on Tuesday, April 7. The membership meeting set for April 24th has been canceled.
  • Guests Restricted: The board of directors voted to allow ONLY members at the club and request that those who do go to the club practice social distancing.
  • Reservations and Events:  We will look at these each month and make decisions as they approach. All deposits will be returned if your reservation has to be canceled. So, for now, no social events will be allowed on club premises until further notice.
  • Deck Construction: Work will continue on the rebuilding of the deck using a skeleton crew.
  • Cardinal Game: May 4 – Canceled
