OPENING DAY – SATURDAY, MAY 25th @ Noon

Yes! 

Saturday is go day. It’s time to kick off this, the 55th year of the Wedgwood Swim Club!

As of this writing, the motor is running, the pump is pumping, and the boiler is back on… life is good! We had a great crew come together and persevere! I want to again say thank you to this crew of assorted plumbers, electricians, motor rebuilder, handyman and board member for getting our pool back up and running. The support received from the community was extremely helpful during this stressful stretch.

Over the last several days I’ve added at least a couple, perhaps three more chapters to my institutional memory. With the knowledge gained during this incident I’ve also figured out some additional things that can be done to help mitigate the likelihood of a similar scenario like this from occurring again.

When you come to the pool this year, you will certainly notice some immediate changes. I don’t want to spoil it, but most of the changes were made for either improving the safety or the security of the club. I hope you find the changes to be an overall improvement.

A few reminders…

Please remember to sign in when you come to the pool, and if you are a Senior member please remember that we need to also check off your swim. Remember to not leave valuables in the lockers, unless you bring your own lock and you can always check wallets, phones, keys, etc., at the pool office.

The Wedgwood Swim Club is a “dry” no-alcohol, no smoking, no vaping facility.  We are a no glass facility too. It’s no fun when a glass container shatters on the pool deck.  This also goes for porcelain mugs!

If you have little one’s that are not yet potty trained, please familiarize yourself with our Double Down Diaper policy. It’s posted at the pool, you can’t miss it. Check the bulletin board with the poster of the 💩on it. If you need a swim diaper and/or swim diaper cover, those are available for purchase in the office.

BBQs and tables are on a first come first serve basis, another improvement is that we have more BBQs this year. Please keep doing what you’ve been doing, sharing is caring. Don’t forget to shut off the gas at the tank when done!

Speaking of BBQ, we originally had scheduled the opening day hot dogs and sodas last Saturday, we’ve now moved it to this coming Monday, Memorial Day.  We plan on having the grills going from 1-3pm and we’ll have some cake to serve up as well to help kick off our 55th year.

For our new members, I don’t have a plan in place for a formal orientation but please feel free to come and swim. Myself and Chris Matsumoto, my Assistant Manager, will be around this weekend as well as during the coming week at swim team practices. Please say hello, ask any questions and we’ll try our best to make you feel at home. I can also be reached via email at: manager@wwpool.org

Early morning lap swim will begin next Tuesday and run until Labor Day Weekend. So those of you that are early risers out there, you can plan on starting your morning Wedgwood routine very soon. Early laps will run from 6-7:30am.

Adult afternoon lap swim will also start next Tuesday. Afternoon laps will run until school gets out for the summer. this swim runs from 2:30-3:30pm.

Member lesson registration for session 1 will be on Wednesday, May 29th, starting at 6pm.

Sunday morning Adult Laps will start in June.

Again, the pool opens on Saturday, May 25th, at noon! Looking forward to reconnecting, and getting to know those of you that are new to the double dub over the next few days and weeks.

Back to managing, not fixing… 😊  See you at the pool!
