This week at WW 6/6 – 6/12

Time Flies
It was a sunny day, a day not unlike today, way back in June 1986.  Peter Klein the pool manager here at the time handed me a key and put me up in the guarding rotation. I do recall that entire first summer as being something sort of magical and since that time I have considered this club pretty much my second home. One thing for sure is that I had no inkling whatsoever that I’d still be here all these years later.  Time has certainly flown by!  And while the world has changed dramatically in the past 30 years, the Wedgwood Swim Club has seemed to somehow stay for the most part the same club it was that I walked into back then. To me that’s a pretty neat thing and something I hope continues for years to come.

Now even though it really feels like mid-summer we are still operating on our part time schedule. Things will start to ramp up a bit more in a couple of weeks.  Before we get to the gist of what’s coming though there are a couple of things I’d like to touch base on.

The first is our sign-in system.  Do or did you have trouble signing in at the pool? Our sign-in system is, well, pretty old school when it comes down to it.  Each one of you has been manually entered into it at one point. Of course new members to the club were added this year and that’s where some of most recent glitches have come up but I have also noticed sometimes the Rob, Bob, Robert or Jennifer, Jenny sort of thing going on too.  Keep in mind that our system only will recognize a name exactly how it was entered.  If you cannot remember if you were say a Mike or a Michael we do have a book on file where we have all the names listed and can look it up.  Names can also be changed as well, please just leave me a note with the desired changes along with the family name that the membership is under.  I’ll make the change as soon as I’m able.

While we’re on the topic of signing in I also want to remind those of you with with different family names under your membership that each family, whether full or senior, has only one card. That card may be listed under your spouse or partner’s last name and not yours. It’s been coming up a lot this past week.  The easiest fix is to check that other name first.  If you’d like to change how that’s listed on the card please contact our membership chair.

The other thing I’d like to revisit are a set of expectations that came about several years ago when let’s just say things were a little less than magical.

Please remember that Patrons at the Wedgwood Swim Club are expected to behave in a manner which:

  • is not-violent and non-threatening.
  • shows respect for other patrons and staff.
  • shows respect and care for property.
  • maintains the safety of themselves, other patrons, and the staff.
  • allows the staff to perform their duties and maintain a safe environment.

Read on to see what’s coming down the pipe… I’ll see you at the pool!
