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,

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.

cake bake, food truck, fun float!

Well the weather has turned just enough to get that cake baked!

Remember, on Saturday evening we have the annual Cake Bake extravaganza.  This year’s theme is Mythology. If you plan to take on the challenge of baking up a real beauty be sure to plan accordingly and get it to the pool in time.  Cakes should arrive between 5:45-6:45pm. The cakes will be on display for all to see from 7-7:30pm, after which, judging will occur. Prizes will be awarded by age groups: 8 and under, 9-12, the teen years, mixed ages, and the family affair.  All of the cakes will then be cut and served. Everyone present will be able to enjoy cake and ice cream to their heart’s desire. 

It will also be Almost Anything Goes in the pool from 7-9:30pm during the event, so you can bring your air mattress, inner tube, or other crazy devices. Also please note that the lap lanes will not be in the pool during this time. 

Along with the cake thing we are trying something new this year.  We will also be having a food trailer/truck on site from 5-9pm.  This truck’s usual location is on 86th and 35th NE, next to Wells Fargo.  Come and enjoy some Indonesian/Thai food.  Note:  Cash only.  I’m hoping for a good showing so that we can continue to have food trucks occasionally make an appearance. So plan on making an evening of it, come on down and have dinner at the truck and cake and ice cream for dessert.  See the truck menu below.

Sunday it’s just regular old pool hours, nothing special, other than swimming outside in the summer!

See you at the pool,

Raab
