Here in the South, there are a number of seasons that we recognize and respect. Hunting, fishing, pollen, and hurricane season are just a few of these seasons. But your Landings Association has another season that we take just as seriously, and that is our Budget Season. 

This season requires lots of planning and evaluation as we seek ways to save money as well as budget for various projects. 

The cumulative number of COVID-19 cases for Skidaway Island is 93 positive test results.

In mid-March, we notified prospective attendees of this year’s CCA Skidaway Banquet and Auction. Due to an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19, we postponed and rescheduled the event from April 21 to the September timeframe. We have set the date of September 22 for the event. (This is one week earlier than the announced September 29 postponement date due to the Club’s rescheduling of the Korn Ferry Golf Tournament for the week of September 28)

Recently, Verizon and its subcontractors have been on island laying fiber optic cable.
