As you may be aware, on July 20th, the Star Island Corporation board announced the formation of the “Island Opened Late” committee “to review the elements which lead to the delayed opening of the 2007 season and recommend any changes to board policy and process or the staff and its process.”

The committee has been meeting and reviewing documents, as well as talking to interested Shoalers.

A summary of the committee’s activities to date is available on the web at – the blog is intended to give the Star Island community a way to know what the committee has been doing. All of the committee’s conclusions and products will be released when they are ready for public review. The blog will *not* contain any “interim” reports or conclusions; it is just a vehicle for talking about the committee’s activities.

The committee welcomes input from the entire Star Island community. Our e-mail address is

In the Star Spirit,

Chair, “Island Opened Late” committee
