half way?!

Yep, believe it or not this coming Wednesday marks the half-way point of the season, but what a fantastic half it has been!

I wanted to extend a thank you to all that came out to the pool on Saturday night for the food truck and cake bake.  While it was definitely disappointing that the food truck ran out of food, the cake bake was indeed fantastic.

We’ll look into another go at food trucking at some point, and figure on having more food, perhaps 2 trucks, and maybe changing the time frame too.

This week at the pool is pretty much as ordinary as they come. Other than the home meet on Thursday, it’s just another seven days of swimming outside in what now appears to be more typical Seattle summer weather.

Something I wanted to briefly touch base on this week is what to do in the event of an emergency at the pool, and in particular, what do you do if you hear the lifeguard blow his or her whistle and/or begin initiating a rescue.

Whether you find yourself on the deck or in the water, in the event that your hear a whistle, STOP and LISTEN. The staff will give instructions on what they need you to do.  They may ask you to stay put, get out of the pool, or if needed, might ask for your assistance.

As a staff we prepare for varying types and degrees of incidents on a regular basis.  This coming Monday and Tuesday we will be conducting scenarios during hours that the pool will be open, so you may indeed be witness, if not part of these drills.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

wifi 
The word on the street is that we have an install date for the wifi…  Not holding my breath though.

apples
We have a couple of apple trees on the pool property and it appears that the apples on them are ready and ripe.  If you or someone you know would like some apples you are welcome to them.  They’d be great for making some apple sauce or pie. We have a basket picker on a pole at the pool available too.  Feel free to come on down and pick them.

See you at the pool,

Raab

I have tweaked the calendar a bit so that pool hours have reverted back to how they had been listed in previous years.  I hope this change works a bit better for everyone.
