Canyon Lake History: Calling in guests in 1984 required five calls

In 1984, five calls were necessary when a property owner called in guests, according to then General Manager Bill Stewart. At the time, as many as 300 guests were phoned in on a normal weekend and as many as 1,000 on holidays, Stewart said.

In August 1984, the POA had begun implementing a security data processing program in which all of the community’s gates would receive computer monitors with access to master files on boat and car registrations and permanent guest files.

Though the process was expected to take approximately 90 to 120 days to train security personnel, the new system helped to reduce gate entry problems.

Under the new system, the guests’ names were typed into a computer and could immediately be read at monitors at each of the three gates. Each morning the names registered on the previous day were deleted.
