Hip Hip Hooray it’s Opening Day – Saturday, May 20th!

From the Manager

What do you know?

The pool opens and on cue, we have spring if not summer like weather on the way!  I’ll take it as a good omen.  We’ve endured such a long wet winter… I know I’ve never been more ready for the pool to open.  Now let’s keep it open…

As many of you remember last year we had a not so little issue with pool contamination. This season we are implementing a plan which won’t likely stop all closing related incidents but should help curb their numbers considerably.  Essentially we will be doubling down on diapers.  The policy can be found outlined below.  If you have a child, grandchild or a guest who is under 3 years of age and not completely potty trained please become familiar with it.  Also note that there will be a limited number of both disposable and non-disposable swim diapers available for purchase in the office but we may not have appropriate sizes available at all times so please plan ahead.  Amazon has plenty of options, and if you order now you’ll be set the first time you come to swim. Thank you!

And it should go without saying…

The sign in system has been updated and should have carried over any changes that were made last season.  Every year though we do have a Robert that becomes a Bob or Jennifer that becomes a Jenny sort of thing.  Those are easy to change just leave me a message in the office with the details. Guests are not in the sign in system but do need to be checked in when you arrive.

Speaking of guests, please note that the first weekend the pool is open will be for members only and that we will not be scheduling any parties to occur during the first full week either. Thanks for understanding.

Other significant schedule related things this month relate to lap swims, as in plural. Early Morning Lap Swim will start on Tuesday, May 30th and run weekdays from 6-7am. Additionally I am trying to figure out how to best work with both the current, and probable future Seattle Public School end times. Fortunately staffing this year is such that we have a solid bunch of early returning college staff and are able to offer an Adult Lap Swim from 2:30-3:30pm weekdays right before the pool opens for general open swim time. This will also start on Tuesday, May 30th and run until June 26th. In the near future I’ll revisit lap lane etiquette as by then I’m sure there will have already been issues, in the meantime, circle swim and share those lanes!

Some scheduled maintenance over this off-season ended up being impacted by the wet and cold weather. We actually had a couple of significant repairs to the pool slated in April but they have had to be pushed into September as they require both dry and relatively warmer conditions to effectively be completed.  Temporary repairs have been made that will get us through but the punch list is already growing for the next off-season.  

One thing you will likely notice is that the pop machine is no longer with us. The constant battle with it becoming jammed and not working along with proposed price increases just didn’t make sense to keep it any more. Interestingly when it was actually taken away we found it had been hiding some rot damage to the pool building as well. With the pop machine removal we did upgrade our drinking fountain and members at the work party earlier this month found it to be a nice trade off.

I know that I’m probably forgetting something but since I have the rest of the season to figure that out I’d better just get back to work getting the place ready to go. Welcome back!  Get ready! And don’t forget that sunscreen. Oh, and there will be hot dogs at noon on Saturday too.

See you at the pool!

Double Down Diaper Policy
Last summer we had an unusually high number of “incidents” resulting in closure of the facility. Poop happens though and unfortunately sometimes is does happen in swimming pools. This season in an effort to prevent or at least minimize these sorts of incidents we are implementing a double swim diaper policy. Prevention is better for all of us.

  • Every child NOT COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED must wear a SNUG FITTING NON-DISPOSABLE swim diaper and or rubber pants over their disposable swim diapers.
  • According to the CDC no swim diaper hold fecal material beyond 3-5 minutes.  By double diapering we hope to get the full 5 minutes.
  • Make it a habit to have your child visit the bathroom before they get into the pool, even if they went at home.
  • If you observe your child doing their “potty dance”, please take you child out of the pool/deck area and head to the bathroom.
  • Take frequent bathroom breaks – we suggest every 30 minutes.
  • If your child is not feeling well, has cramps, diarrhea, tummy ache, do not come to the pool.  Some of these scenarios could potentially lead to a 24-hour pool closure.

There will be a limited number of both disposable and non-disposable swim diapers available for purchase in the office but we may not have appropriate sizes available at all times so please plan on being prepared.

Stowing your stuff
I think when it comes to feeling safe and secure, the Wedgwood Swim Club fits that description pretty nicely.  Thankfully it’s pretty rare that something happens where that sense of security is compromised but every once in while even we have an issue. Usually it’s in a locker room where something disappears but thankfully even this happens only about as often as a presidential election. 

So, being an election year I would like to remind you that you are always welcome to check your wallets, purses, keys, phones, etc. in at the pool office.  As far as swim bags and such, many people feel more comfortable taking them out on the deck instead of leaving them in the locker room.  Really it’s about whatever works for you and your comfort level.

You may also choose to bring a lock with you for the lockers as well, but we ask that you take that lock home with you when you leave for the day.  Now there are occasions when leaving a lock on a locker is permitted, but those instances should be cleared with the pool management in advance.

Finally with the summer season about to swing into full gear next week there will be events such as swim meets where there will be many more people coming into and through the club.  Locker rooms during these times are difficult at best to monitor so please keep that in mind when, where and how you decide to stow your stuff.

See you at the pool!

SHOWERS

Rub a double dub, please give yourself a scrub! Yes this week let’s talk about taking that shower before you get into the pool. Now I just made the mistake of Googling “shower before entering pool” not something for the faint of heart!  

Taking a shower before entering the pool is probably hands down the most universally ignored pool rule, PERIOD. It’s something that the staff will be upping their enforcement efforts on in hopes that there will be a corresponding increase with compliance. Now the pool staff won’t necessarily be checking to see how well you’ve indeed scrubbed, but they will be asking/reminding you to take a shower.

Remember we all want to swim in a clean pool and it starts with a good, cleansing shower. Doing so helps keep all of the nasty things out of our pool. It also helps to extend our filter runs and allows us to use less chemicals as well. So do your part and educate your kids too! Get wet, wash off that stuff that otherwise will end up in the water! Your fellow pool members will appreciate your efforts!

Thank you very much!

Raab

It’s hip to be square

Well we’ve entered the 21st century now and besides cash and checks, we now accept credit cards as payment at the pool.  Please note that there is a fee which we are passing through for using your card but the choice and convenience are available if you so choose.

Time Flies
It was a sunny day, a day not unlike today, way back in June 1986.  Peter Klein the pool manager here at the time handed me a key and put me up in the guarding rotation. I do recall that entire first summer as being something sort of magical and since that time I have considered this club pretty much my second home. One thing for sure is that I had no inkling whatsoever that I’d still be here all these years later.  Time has certainly flown by!  And while the world has changed dramatically in the past 30 years, the Wedgwood Swim Club has seemed to somehow stay for the most part the same club it was that I walked into back then. To me that’s a pretty neat thing and something I hope continues for years to come.

Now even though it really feels like mid-summer we are still operating on our part time schedule. Things will start to ramp up a bit more in a couple of weeks.  Before we get to the gist of what’s coming though there are a couple of things I’d like to touch base on.

The first is our sign-in system.  Do or did you have trouble signing in at the pool? Our sign-in system is, well, pretty old school when it comes down to it.  Each one of you has been manually entered into it at one point. Of course new members to the club were added this year and that’s where some of most recent glitches have come up but I have also noticed sometimes the Rob, Bob, Robert or Jennifer, Jenny sort of thing going on too.  Keep in mind that our system only will recognize a name exactly how it was entered.  If you cannot remember if you were say a Mike or a Michael we do have a book on file where we have all the names listed and can look it up.  Names can also be changed as well, please just leave me a note with the desired changes along with the family name that the membership is under.  I’ll make the change as soon as I’m able.

While we’re on the topic of signing in I also want to remind those of you with with different family names under your membership that each family, whether full or senior, has only one card. That card may be listed under your spouse or partner’s last name and not yours. It’s been coming up a lot this past week.  The easiest fix is to check that other name first.  If you’d like to change how that’s listed on the card please contact our membership chair.

The other thing I’d like to revisit are a set of expectations that came about several years ago when let’s just say things were a little less than magical.

Please remember that Patrons at the Wedgwood Swim Club are expected to behave in a manner which:

  • is not-violent and non-threatening.
  • shows respect for other patrons and staff.

This week at Wedgwood Swim Club – May 31st – June 5th

Welcome back Sun! The pool will be open during sunny weather this week!  Yahoo!

Big news this week, Early Morning Lap Swim starts Tuesday, May 31st!  It will run 6-7am weekdays.

Swim team workouts Tues, Wed, Thurs this week.  Last day to order gear is 5/31 – 9am!
8 and under swimmers     7:00 – 7:30 pm
9-11 swimmers                   7:30 – 8:00 pm
12-14 swimmers                 8:00 – 8:45 pm

If you weren’t already aware, guest fees went up and are now $5 per guest for the first 20 per season. After the first 20 the rate is $7 per guest. Party guests are a slightly different rate as well, $6 per guest. These prices do include 9.6% sales tax.    The complete guest policy can be found here.

Please, if you notice something that needs attention, or you have a question about something, don’t hesitate to let someone on the staff know.  We try to get things fixed and/or back to you in a day but with school still in session it might take a tad longer.

Just a friendly reminder to drive slowly on your trip to and from the pool.  And it should go without saying, park legally and with regard to our pool neighbors. Trust me, they do not like having their driveways encroached upon any more than the rest of us.

Member lesson registration is next week on Wednesday, June 8th from 6-7:30pm.  If you are planning on registering for lessons make a note of that.  If your child(ren) need a placement test getting that done prior to registration will be very helpful.  Placement tests can be done pretty much any time the pool is open.

See you at the pool!
