July 8th – 14th

From the Manager

It’s going to be a busy week. We have not one, but two home meets this week, so make a note that on both Tuesday (picture day)¬†and Thursday, the pool will be closing at 4pm. We’ll also be closing early next¬†Tuesday (senior meet)¬†for our last dual meet at home this season. ¬†It’s kind of a crazy schedule this year for sure.

On Saturday, it’s the annual Cake Bake event and then some.¬†More details¬†below.

There are also a couple of other things I’d like to touch base on, the first¬†being¬†alcohol consumption at the pool. There has¬†been some evidence of late that I need to send out a¬†reminder that the Wedgwood Swim Club is a “dry” facility. This means that alcoholic beverages of any kind are¬†not permitted. In addition,¬†the consumption of anything intoxicating or otherwise mind altering while on the premises is also not allowed. It should also go without saying that if you have imbibed please¬†don’t come to the pool.

The other thing I wanted to bring up has to do with AFRs or¬†Accidental Feces Release into the pool as¬†I’ve been getting a fair share of emails regarding the issue. Procedures are in place for¬†the clean up of AFR, as well as other contaminates.¬†Unfortunately it’s not a matter of if AFRs¬†will occur, it’s a matter of when. Please help us keep the pool as uncontaminated as possible!

Prevention is paramount when it comes to keeping the pool water clean. Double diapering and being proactive by taking regular bathroom breaks with the little ones is extremely helpful and important. Also being aware that individuals who have had gastrointestinal issues/diarrhea recently should be staying out of the pool. No ifs, ands, or buts, a diarrheal AFR will take us out of commission for an entire day and that would truly be a poopy situation.

See you at the pool.

Chili Potluck and Cake Bake this Saturday, July 13th

The Cake Bake is a rite of summer at Wedgwood.¬† Once a year children, families, or friends bake and decorate cakes according to that year’s theme.¬† It is a tasty way to express your creativity and pretend you work for the Food Network.¬†After the judging, then we eat! Cake and ice cream is served by the staff. ¬†Theme:¬†Mother Goose & Brothers Grimm.¬†

Schedule: Cakes should arrive between 6-¬†6:30pm, viewing from¬†7-7:30, judging 7:45,¬†and then serving them up until they’re gone.

The chili feed has returned!¬†Enjoy dinner before the Cake Bake coming up this Saturday. The chili feed potluck will¬†commence about 6pm. We’ll save the judging for the cakes only¬†this year, so no pressure.¬†Prepare your favorite family chili recipe¬†and bring it to the pool¬†to share.¬†Drinks, chili toppings, and chips will be provided.¬†

In addition, there will¬†be a fun float from 7-9:30pm, so we’ve got a really fun¬†filled evening in store!¬†

FYI, there will be no lap lanes in the pool during this time.


Lost and Found

With 3 home meets in the next 9 days our lost and¬†found¬†is about to¬†grow¬†exponentially. ¬†Please take a look at the items on the table in the lobby and claim them by¬†Wednesday at noon. ¬†After that this particular pile will be¬†donated to make way for the “new” lost and found.
