I believe that there too many ways to cheat with picture ID cards. What is wrong with carrying your ID card? If you want to carry a phone, slip the ID card into the carrying case.

Z....I have a case for my phone that does just what you suggest. Every time I slide the cover open and show my ID card, the first thing out of their mouth is, "We don't take digital cards". Once they realize it's the real thing...all is good.

But why don't you think that they don't have electronic/computer gurus on their staff? I am sure that they do or we would be getting handwritten notes from them.

Like I said in my first note, there are too many ways to compromise an ID card picture.

The developer owns Citizens First Bank, so I think they are tech savvy.

The residents check in system may not be a priority for improvement, especially since the developer eventually will turn all responsibility of rec centers and executive courses over to the residents.

The courses north of 466 are owned by the VCCDD, South are still owned by the developer. They will NEVER be owned by the residents.

Where does the idea that The Villages will eventually turn the property over to the residents come from? I know that happens in a lot of cases, but The Villages is different and the Morse family is different. I honestly don't ever see that happening.

We don't own, nor do I suspect that we will ever own the golf courses or rec centers.

As opposed to waiting in line behind someone with two arms full of tennis equipment or music equipment trying to go through their wallets for their IDs?

Yes, people depend on their phones a lot and will continue to do so more and more in the future. Get used to it.

The best solution would be to have the bracelets like they have a Disney. Hands free.

I agree. That would work very well here.

The plan is already in place for them to be owned by the center district which is no comprised of any homeowners. There are no residential properties in that district. They already are handling the admin part of all the facilities.Ownership is only waiting for a final disposition in the IRS issue.

Don't the residents residing north of 466 now have responsibility of the rec centers and multimodal trails? Don't they have VCCD officials elected by the residents?

I hear about the former El Santiago restaurant being sold to VCCD, renovations to Chula Vista rec center, rebuilding of Terra De Sole rec center, and the stripping of the multimodal paths. Weren't these turned over to the residents to make these decisions?

I think the properties south of 466 will also be turned over to the residents, who will then in turn elect their own officials to operate these amenities.

Does anyone think it is a good idea to have a driver licenses accepted from a cell phone? The state gives drivers one waiver by mail to renew but then a driver license has to be secured in person with proof of id including a passport, utility bills with your address, social security cards, etc

I have spoken with many starters and it is an eye opener to see the number of golfers who try to get one past the starters including fake ID's trying to escape the $4 fee where trail fees were not paid, etc

We assume people are honest an upright here but unfortunately there are some real nasty people here and fortunately they are a slim minority.
