The Lastest Word

Happy Warm Weather!

Polar CubsSwim Team has started, swimming lessons are in full swing, and the weather is cooperating (unlike last year!). Here are some important updates for our members:

Assembly Party
Initially we had scheduled another Assembly Party for re-strapping chairs for tomorrow, Thursday, May15th. This has been re-scheduled for Sunday, May 18th at 12:00 p.m. Please say you’ll help! We have 2 cases of beer that we would love to donate to some hard workers! Thanks again to all who have already helped out with this unbelievably overwhelming project. Our members are simply the best.

Drowning Prevention
Please, please, please read this important article about drowning (click here). Our staff is trained to be ever-vigilant in their duties, but all of us poolside should be aware of the signs of a swimmer in distress. Drowning is referred as a “quiet event,” unlike the dramatic splashing and thrashing portrayed in movies.

Copies of our Emergency Action Plan are available in the Guard Shack, and we will be conducting regular drills over the summer, with featured “drowners” that we will rescue. Drill dates and times will be publicized to the membership so that children and adults can be spared the panic of thinking that an actual drowning is occurring. More information about our drills will be forthcoming in the upcoming weeks.

Swim Team Events/Fundraisers
Mark your calendar! Two fun Swim Team fundraisers are right around the corner.  Ale House Spirit Day will held on Wednesday, May 21st from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Murraywood Swim Team will receive 10% of all non-bar sales on this day! Sounds like going out to eat time! And Moe’s Spirit Day is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4th from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. with a portion of the profits coming right back to the Sharks! Helping the team has never been easier or tastier!

Pool Calendar
We will be opening for the Memorial Day holiday weekend at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 23rd, and will be open that weekend through 7:00 p.m. Monday, May 26th. Our full summer calendar is on our website at this link:
