summer has finally arrived!
With school getting out late, and the on and off again weather, this summer certainly took way too long to get going.  Better late than never though and with the forecast for this week looking superb, it’s time to come and get some serious pool time in.  Please note the early pool closer coming this Sunday though.

What’s Happening? July 18th – 24th

Cake, Cake, Cake!  
A big thank you to all that took some time away from playing Pokémon Go to participate in our annual cake bake event.  We had some very creative and delicious entries!

One last meet, here anyway…
The dual meet season wraps up this week with our last home meet of the season against View Ridge.  Come cheer on our seniors as they swim one last time here at WW. Please note we will be setting up some of the lap lanes prior to the meet but will leave a couple of them out as well this time around too.  We’ll also be closing a bit earlier at 3:50 as we have a little bit of extra set up and prep for the senior festivities.  Warm-up at 4:50, senior thing at 5:50, meet start 6pm.

Bag?
If you have not ordered your swim team duffel bag yet, today. Monday, July 18th is your last day to do so.  As of 10:15am this morning we only have 4 on order.

 

Party time!
It’s been a long time coming but this Saturday will be our first adult party of the season.  The event will get under way at 7pm on the upper deck.  Come by for a micro-brew and some munchies while at the same time we’ll be having an anything goes event in the pool for the kids along with an ice cream bar.  The weather looks pretty promising too… finally!  Please note the lap lanes will not be in after 7pm during this event.

See you at the pool!

July 11th – 17th

A little late I am in this weekly email update.  Better late than never though and at this point I’m hoping we’ll be able to say the same thing about our summer as well.

Believe it or not the half-way day of the season is this coming Wednesday.  How did that happen? 

Sign-ins at the pool are down 36% comparing this year to last, but comparing anything to last year is probably not a fair comparison.  

This Tuesday and Thursday will likely be two of the quietest evenings at the pool all summer long as the Wedgwood Swim Team hits the road for two away meets.

The Cake Bake is coming up this Saturday evening – this year’s theme is Pixar.  Cakes should arrive between 6-6:58pm. Viewing starts at 7pm, followed by judging and then the eating of course.  There will also be an Almost Anything Goes from 7-9:30pm during this time and please note that the lap lanes will not be in during this time.

Bake that cake…

See you at the pool!
