Weekend Update…¬†ūüėé…and a Request

It looks like we have a fantastic weekend ahead and things should certainly be hopping at the pool.  We have the Cake Bake as well as a Fun Float happening on Saturday night and while I anticipate this being a very well attended event, I believe that this Sunday is shaping up to likely be the busiest day of this 2018 season. In anticipation, I have already scheduled some extra guard coverage, and at this time, we are not putting any more parties on the calendar. Be prepared if you come mid to late in the day as an empty lounge chair or an umbrella will likely be hard to find.

Typically, about once every other season or so, things line up perfectly to create a situation where we experience extremely high pool usage. To help ensure the pool remains a pleasant place for our membership we are asking that this weekend, especially on Sunday, to please limit the number of guests that you bring. Bring them in early between 12-3, or think about bringing them on another day altogether.

I don’t think most people realize when they are bringing in one or two guests with them that it’s really that big of an impact, but when every other member also using the facility is bringing in that same one or two guests it starts to add up.

Thank you for being mindful of this request, and see you at the pool!

Evening Lessons Update

Update РAfter re-evaluating our scheduling and staffing we will be able to offer a second session of evening lessons.  Second session dates will be: Mon. July 23rd, Wed. July 25th, Mon. July 30th and Wed. Aug 1st. We plan on doing registration for this session a little bit differently than we typically do. We will first be opening registration for these evening lessons to members as we usually do on the Wednesday morning of registration beginning at 8:30am РJuly 18th.  What will be different, is that Non-Members currently enrolled in evening lessons will then have priority to register on the 18th beginning at 5:30pm. This will be a first come first served registration as per our usual process. If you have questions or would like more information please contact us.

What’s Happening July 9th – 15th…

Yippie! Summer has arrived!

We’re back to a more “normal” summer week at the pool. ¬†We do have our first away meet at Blue Ridge on Tuesday, so those of you that like a nearly empty pool to swim in, take note. ¬†You might also want to make a note that on¬†Thursday we host another home meet so the pool will be closing early on¬†that afternoon at 4pm. We are still¬†looking for volunteers for that meet.¬†¬†Sign up to help in the lobby at the pool, and/or¬†on¬†team unify if you¬†have swimmer on the team.

Our first Sunday morning laps was well attended. While we are still trying to work out the details as to when and¬†how to switch from the 6 lane format back to 3. What I do know is that we will have 6 lanes from 11am-noon, and then¬†3 lanes from noon-1pm. It’s how we set¬†those three lanes up at noon that we are still ironing out as there’s both¬†pros and cons to leaving them in place, in the east-west 25 yard¬†configuration,¬†or moving them¬†into¬†north-south 25 meter set up.¬†We’ll get it ironed out and see how it goes this coming Sunday.

There’s still time¬†to join the WW Adult Team!¬†¬†Workouts – 8-9pm Monday and Wednesday.¬†Note that during this workout time¬†our general swim¬†lap lane¬†configuration¬†will not be available.

The annual Cake Bake is coming up this coming Saturday! The Cake Bake is an annual tradition at Wedgwood.  Once a year children, families, or friends bake and decorate cakes according to a theme.  It is a tasty way to express your creativity and pretend you work on for the Food Network. After the judging, cake and ice cream is served by the staff.  
Theme: SEASONS
Schedule: Cakes should arrive by 6:30pm, viewing from 7-7:30, judging around 7:30 and then serving them up after that until they are gone.

There will also be a fun float from 7-9:30pm on Saturday as well. There will not be lap lanes during this time.

Enjoy the weather and enjoy the pool!  Just please take a GOOD shower before getting in! Thanks!

What’s this?

This is the underside of the hand dryer that’s currently not working in the womens’ locker room. Not a big surprise that the motor has gone out in this unit given that it was installed in 1992. A¬†replacement motor was difficult to find but¬†has¬†been ordered. My hope is to have it back up and running¬†next weekend.

What’s Happening: July 2nd – 8th

From the Manager

With the holiday coming up in the middle of the week, and no swim meets, this week has the promise of well earned respite.  The pool schedule will remain otherwise normal with exception of July 4th. Details are listed below.

For our lap swimmers we will be adding an Adult Lap Swim on Sunday mornings starting this coming Sunday, July 8th. The swim will run from 11am РNoon, and 6 lanes will be available

I’m¬†heading¬†north but y’all have¬†a happy fourth!

Cake bake is coming… ¬†Save the date, Saturday, July 14th.

What’s this?
 
This is our Chemtrol!¬†This little thing helps keep our chemicals in check by monitoring the water 24/7 and automatically making¬†adjustments¬†to keep¬†both the chlorine and ph in the pool within their proper parameters. Now we still check both it and the water hourly while the pool is open as it’s not always 100% reliable, but it certainly does make the job much easier than it used to be.¬†We’ve had some version of this unit for over 20 years now and I¬†believe this is our 4th one, which was installed prior to last season.
