Chamber Events to Have a Different Look

It started with our June Networking lunch.  As members arrived, they were subjected to a temperature check and a healthcare questionnaire.  Instead of passing the microphone around the room, members stood behind a stationary mic to deliver their message.  Given that no one knows what the future holds for all of us, those changes will continue.

Going a Step Further

The Chamber’s first in-person Business Card Exchange is scheduled for July 8th at Skip’s Backyard (1990 Placida Road).  In addition to the implemented networking lunch protocols, a face mask will be provided to anyone who does not arrive with one.  Unlike our Business Card Exchanges of the past, the attendance is limited to just 50 people. To control the crowd size, only those making an online reservation will be allowed to enter the private event.

Putt-Putt Team Reservations are Now Being Accepted

Registration is open for this year’s 4th Annual Englewood Beach Putt Putt.   This year’s theme is “Red, White and Blue”.  Guaranteed to be another fun time but this year’s event will look very different from those in the past. Most notably, there will be fewer teams, meaning fewer people participating.  There are 11 venues this year, instead of 9, to help control the flow of people to comply with CDC guidelines.

Things you need to know:

  • The maximum number of teams that can participate is 60.
  • Unlike years past, trolleys will not be available.
  • This year’s event will not include a wrap-up party.
  • Each participant must complete a waiver and healthcare screening questionnaire.
  • Each participant must agree to a contactless temperature check.
  • Each team will be given face masks to encourage safety

The entry fee for a team (four people) is $80.00, a reduction from previous years, and can be made online: www.EnglewoodBeach9.com

Free Masks Available

The Chamber has FREE face masks available for anyone that needs one. (while supplies last) They are made of cloth and are washable. The masks are courtesy of the Englewood Fire Department and the Department of Health and Human Services

    We do not know for sure yet…that will be decided by our county commissioners. The CC webpage is the best resource for updated info on our beaches/parks & rec rules.
