August… rollin’ along

From the manager…

ROAD CLOSURE!

Latest Update: 

Word on the street about the street is that the roadwork is scheduled for Friday now, not Thursday, however the word from SDOT when I called says they are doing it Thursday…

We’ll let you know what we know when we know it…


The most immediate information I need to share with you is that the Seattle Department of Transportation – SDOT, will be working on 28th AVE NE from NE 75th to the pool this Thursday, August 17th. I have been told that the work is scheduled to start around noon and that the road will not be drivable for up to 6 hours after the work is completed. We will remain open so if you plan on coming to the pool that day plan on using alternative routes to get here.

WATERSHOW
The other big news this week is that the Watershow is coming up on Saturday!  The show will start at dusk – right around 8:30pm.  Also this year we’ll be having the BeanFish foodtruck on site from 6:30-8:30pm. Yum. So come grab a bite and enjoy the show.  


Please note that the pool will be closing early at 7pm both on Friday for the rehearsal, and then again on Saturday for the big show.

ADULT PARTY.2
On Saturday, August 26th we’ll be having the 2nd and final adult party of the season. There will be drinks and light bites on the upper deck starting at 7pm and the party is scheduled to run until 10pm.  Also during the party there will be an Almost Anything Goes but sadly there will be no bull riding as that beast ended up biting the dust during our last Anything Goes.

TIDBITS – in chronological order

  •  Lesson Registration for Session 5 – Wed., Aug 16th, 8:30am.
  • The pool will close at 7pm both Fri., Aug. 18th and Sat., Aug. 19th for the Watershow rehearsal and show.
  • Thurs, Aug 24th after 5:45pm – Water Polo Matches will close the deep area of the pool.  No lap lanes will be available during this time.
  • Water aerobics will run through Friday, August 25th.
  • Adult Party 7-10pm and Anything Goes 7-9:30pm
  • Thur, Aug 31st the pool will be closing early at 3:45pm for the SSSL Water Polo Championships.

This week at Wedgwood – June 12th – June 18th

From the manager…
Sometimes things go a little sideways and that’s exactly what happened today (Sunday) in the womens’ locker room.

If you weren’t at the pool, or haven’t already heard, the full size mirror attached to the changing stall came crashing down.  Frightening to say the least.  Fortunately, no one was injured but the clean up will take a bit more time than we anticipated, therefore the womens’ locker room will be closed on Monday morning during early morning lap swim.

I want to apologize for this inconvenience and truly wish I were able to give more advance notice but after the initial cleaning, which involved a good deal of sweeping, vacuuming, and then spraying, it was still evident that there is more to clean up.  The floor needs to be completely dry to get the job done and that is why we need to keep the locker room closed a bit longer. So with more cleaning on the schedule for tomorrow morning it is our hope that things will soon be back to being a bit more normal.

As far as the mirror goes, prior to making any decisions on replacement, we’ll be taking a good look at why it came down and better systems for fastening.

Now besides all this excitement there is a home meet this week!  Wedg vs Wood on Thursday. Please note that the pool will not be open for general swim that afternoon but will be open for the afternoon lap swim from 2:30-3:30.

Also the pool will stay open an little bit longer this coming Friday and Saturday – 8pm closing! 

See you at the pool this week.

TIME TRIALS (for 12 & Unders only) – Saturday, June 10th @ 10:00 am (warm-up begins at 9:30)

Time Trials is basically a baseline test for the swimmers in our younger three age groups. We like getting times for them all at the beginning of the year, so we know where they started and track the improvement as the summer goes along. This will not take very long, we will ask each swimmer to try each of the strokes (this is not required, they can do any or all of the events) and it moves along pretty quickly. I assume we’ll be finished by 11:30 am.

We will be talking to the swimmers about this during the week and making sure we’re preparing them for what to expect.

Swim Suit Swap- No Logo Change this year

Bring your too small Wedgwood Team Suits to the swap table. There will be folks needing those out grown suits and maybe your kids will fit into someone else’s hand me down.

Timer Training

Wondering what volunteering as a timer involves?  Find out during Swim Suit Fitting night.  Lead time Jeff Haven will be there with stop watches to demo and train.  It’s actually kind of easy, fun and you get snacks!

Timers get to know most of the swimmers by name.  Get the best seat in the house for those finishes.  Get splashed by cool water on those hot days by start dives and flip turns.  Have fun and make new friends.

Thanks,

The Wedgwood Swim Team Committee
 


Evening workouts continue Monday – Thursday.

  • 8 and under, 7-7:30
  • 9-11, 7:30 – 8
  • 12-14, 8 – 8:45
  • 15 and up, 8:45 to 9:30

Looking ahead, morning workouts will start Tuesday, June 27th and at least for now the schedule will be:

  • 15-18 swimmers   7:00-8:00 am
  • 13-14 swimmers   8:00-8:50 am
  • 11-12 swimmers   8:50-9:35 am

      *Youngest swimmers often get out 5-10 minutes early

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.
  • 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.

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!

We have been getting questions about work parties.  Currently there is a work party scheduled on Saturday May 6th.

Additional Wednesdays in April may also be scheduled but will be determined by the number of people willing to commit.  If you are available and would like to work a Wednesday in April please send an email with family name and phone number.

How many or which Wednesdays, more info coming, right now trying to compile an “available” list.

This week at WW – July 4th-10th

Happy 4th of July!  Today:  Late morning lap swim 10-noon, Pool hours 12-7pm, Fun Float 2-4pm.

Even with the short week there’s plenty going on at the pool this week. Member registration for the second session of lessons will be on Wednesday morning starting at 8:30am.  The adult team will also try to work out in the water on Wednesday and there will be a home meet on Thursday. Saturday night is the overnighter, sign up and get your form at the pool office.

The following week we will have two away meets, and mark your calendar, the Cake Bake will be on the 16th – this year’s theme is Pixar.

I’ve heard that the outdoor shower has been life-changing for some of you.  A big shout out to Jeff Haven and his brother who took on the task of getting it installed!

That’s it for now…

See you at the pool!
