Friendship & Fun
Previously Known As The Rumbling Bald Homeowners Association
Our Group is the social counterpart of the 'Rumbling Bald Resort Property Owners Association.
As of June, 2018, we updated our name and re-energized our mission to provide our members with better communications, and an enjoyable and convenient membership experience.
As a non-profit organization, we are focused on creating fun events open to all members.
We invite you to sign up for an annual membership, and take part in the community camaraderie at Rumbling Bald. Be part of the Friendship & Fun!
Who We Are
Membership in the group is totally voluntary, and open to anyone in the Rumbling Bald/Lake Lure area.
We have been in existence since the early ‘ 80’s. Our dues are currently $35 per household. Members elect a (separate) Board of Directors who provide the governance of the HOA, assisted by an Events Coordinator, a Program Committee and other volunteers who perform task-specific support functions (Membership Director, Reservationist, Decorations Committee, etc.). Our fiscal year runs March thru February.
What We Do
The HOA plans a number of social events each year, most of which are open exclusively to members and their guests. Events include a complete sit-down meal, served either table-side (with choice up to three entree selections) or buffet-style. Our cost includes superb entertainment, gratuity, and taxes. A limited number of socials may also be open to the public (such as the Octoberfest), or held jointly with other organizations.
Dues underwrite and / or subsidize the cost of these events and make it possible for the HOA to put on a variety of functions designed with the attributes of fun, quality, and camaraderie at a great value! The cost, per dinner, is generally less than or comparable to similar "specials" at local restaurants where taxes, gratuities, and entertainment are NOT included.
We also keep in touch with hard copy, mailed newsletters, email blasts through the the year, about our ‘ socials ‘, as well as this open member website.
What We Offer
Member households receive an annual Directory, providing detailed contact information (including the address and telephone number of an optional secondary address, eMail addresses, and cell phone numbers for up to two household members) for all HOA members. In addition, the Directory includes essential information such as phone numbers for important resort management & departments, and other key local businesses, emergency contacts, as well as the area's Disaster Evacuation Plan, Shelter Locations, and Flash Flood Information. We also provide helpful and informative communications via website, Facebook, and private email notices.
Anyone in the Rumbling Bald/Lake Lure area is eligible for membership and may register by completing a form and paying online, requesting an application from a Board Member, or when making a reservation for an event. Join Us, have fun and meet your neighbors!
What The POA Is
Membership in the Property Owners Association (POA) is generally mandatory for all property owners within the resort. The POA (Property Owners association) is controlled by owners through an elected Board of Directors. Thus, the POA is the business entity which is responsible for management of resort-provided services, amenities, maintenance, infrastructure needs, capital improvements, etc. Your annual dues are a required cost of being a Rumbling Bald property or time-share owner, and, along with revenue from various business operations of the Resort, fund the resort's operations.
