Summer’s Last Stand?

From the manager

I have a whole new respect for what school districts go through now when it snows out. Continually monitoring the weather and having to make programming decisions takes significantly more mental effort than I thought it would. Strange days indeed!

Last week I said things were starting to wind down at the pool, how prophetic was that? While summer seems to have packed up and left, we still have one week of full time operations, baring of course any more smoke related schedule changes. The forecast unfortunately is looking like more of the same, so it’s likely going to be wait and see again for a while.

Now I know that this week is going be a little more challenging for me with keeping everyone updated as I will be heading to southern California to drop off my daughter at college. While I’ll still be able to monitor things from afar, I won’t have immediate access to, or likely be able to update the pool web page, or send out emails Wednesday or Thursday. I should however be able to update the club Facebook page while on the road as it’s way less complicated and can be done¬†mobily. So if you don’t already follow the page, click here¬†Wedgwood Swim Club,¬†or search for the Wedgwood Swim Club Facebook Page, then like the page so you can stay in the loop.

Remember this week we are set to be hosting the SSSL Water Polo Championships on Thursday, August 30th. The pool will be closing early at 3:30 on the 30th.

Early Morning Lap Swim will wrap up for the season this Friday, August 31st. Also please remember that the Roosevelt Women’s Swim Team is scheduled to be holding practice Monday through Friday at 7:30am. Be prepared for a few more people coming in right about the time this lap swim ends.

Aerobics will is scheduled to run Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week form 12:30-1:15pm. Friday will be the last day of Aerobics this season.

Labor Day is really right around the corner now. Our¬†annual Biathlon will be at 9:30am with warm-up starting at 9. ¬†Ping Pong¬†Tournament at Noon – just come and play. The pool will be open from 12-7pm. Games¬†galore will be from 2:30-3:30, and we’ll also have the BeanFish¬†food truck onsite from 2-5:30pm… yum! ¬†

We had joy, we had fun, we had a season full of sun, but then the smoke did appear, now the skies are not so clear…
