Wait, was that… Rain!?

What a welcome break. Sun lovers don’t worry, our regularly scheduled summer looks like it will return very soon. In the meantime here are a few reminders.

  • Early morning lap swim is now running Monday – Friday from 6-7:30

  • The pool will be closing early at 5:45pm the next three Thursdays, 8/12, 8/19, 8/26

I also would like to take a moment to remind everyone to be taking a good cleansing shower before hopping into the pool. It seems as though through COVID many have gotten out of this habit and I it’s had a noticeable effect on the clarity of the water. So please take a little extra time, soap up, and get yourself cleaned off.

One additional thing that we can all do to help keep the water quality as good as possible is when applying sunscreen to do so either prior to coming to the pool, or do it at the pool and then allow time for it to adhere/dry onto your skin. I’ve seen way too many times where people put sunscreen on themselves and/or their kids and then hop right into the pool. The end result is not surprisingly a cloudier pool, a waste of sunscreen, and likely less protection from the sun than intended.

Guest Policy Reminder

We have been getting a lot of calls regarding where we are with our current guest policy. Here’s the quick version of where we are currently:

  • Up to 5 guests – No reservation required

  • 6-12 guests – Reservation required – 2 hour limit – typically we try not to schedule these during “prime time” which is approximately 2-5:30pm

The full guest policy can be found here.

Keep in mind that the current guest guidelines may change and that there are also times when we may have member only days, and/or days when the weather might necessitate the suspension of guest privileges because of anticipated increased member pool usage. We try to publicize those as far in advance as possible.

See you at the pool! -Raab

Dig it!

No one wants to see the end of pool season, but the quiet months can be time to get things done in our arboretum.

  • We will be getting a couple of loads of wood chips to be spread (unknown time frame)

  • The lot striping needs to be repainted (weather dependent-when the brush pile is gone)

  • Outside the fence on the south side of the pool the landscape needs major pruning-dead wood removal and the brush hauled to the parking lot for loading in a rental truck.

We will start with landscape parties on Sat Sept 18 and 25, and see how the progress goes. I can also do weekday gatherings, if that helps the schedules of members. Come if you can, these projects are not time critical, if you can’t make it that is ok.

Those who wish can receive a refund of $50 from the 2021 pool fees, or you can donate that money back to our pool resurface fund.

Employment Opportunities

We already know that we will have openings on staff for the 2022 season.  We also know that we have far more potential applicants than positions. In anticipation of a significant number of applicants, we have decided to conduct several interviews this summer in August and September. Below you will find the steps to apply:

1. Review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and Job Description which can be found on the Wedgwood Website on a document titled “WW Application Information 2022.”

2. Email Sara Behrens (sbbehrens@gmail.com) to receive the Signup Genius link to schedule your interview. Interview dates are on: 8/11, 8/18, and 9/11. We will conduct some interviews over the school year, however some of these may need to be conducted via Zoom rather than in-person. 

3. Complete the WW Application by October 1, 2021 in order to be considered in the first round of hiring. Please note, you may participate in an interview before completing your application. 

Interview Details

  • All interviews will be conducted at Wedgwood Swim Pool (7727 28th Ave NE) by Rob Parker (Manager) and Sara Behrens (Lifeguard Supervisor). 

  • Interviews will last between 20-30 minutes.

  • Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can provide you with a copy of the questions prior to your interview. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact Sara Behrens sbbehrens@gmail.com
