  • Important notice! If you are still pre-authorizing your guests and vendors by calling 912-598-1982, option 1, please follow the automated prompts.
  • Keep in mind, this is not a voicemail system, and when asked to clearly say the name of your guest, simply state the name of your guest or vendor.
  • Do NOT leave your name, address, etc. Your PIN number is tied directly to your account, so we do not need any other information besides your guest’s or vendor’s name.
  • If you need to provide special instructions associated with your guest or vendor, then the below mentioned GateAccess.Net is the appropriate option. It has a dedicated place to annotate special notes or instructions.

  • Congratulations to Anne Lyon for receiving the Skidaway Island First Responder of the Year Award for 2022.
  • Anne has been a Skidaway Island First Responder for 20 years. A short article can’t adequately express her contribution to our group and this island. Suffice it to say, she has volunteered more hours of her time looking out for all of us than I can calculate. Thank you, Anne, for your years of service and setting the bar so high for the rest of us.
  • I also thank Robin Rackoff for her dedication and commitment to the Skidaway Island First Responders. Robin made it her mission years ago to raise money within the Mah Jongg community for our organization. Even in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic when the tournament wasn’t held, she continued to raise money on our behalf.

  • Change is in the air…
  • As we pushed into November and rounded the corner to December, some clear signs are developing relative to the national real estate market and, specifically, in The Landings:
  • Share your article, video, and social media post suggestions with our team. 
  • Email us at webmaster@landings.org to share your thoughts. 
  • Did you know now is the perfect time for you and your pooch to try out The Landings Dog Park to see if it is a good fit for your social life?
  • From September 1 through December each year, the rate drops to $15 per dog.
  • However, the tag will need to be renewed at the regular fee in January.
