In the pool packet we all received last spring, the pool closing time shows a change from 9 PM to 8 PM at the beginning of August. This is an adjustment due to sunset being earlier and earlier as the season concludes. As you know, our pool does not have the necessary lighting for evening hours. There was some confusion these last few days because our previous management company didn’t properly communicate with TA last fall, resulting in them unknowingly not being on the same page about the date of this change. Everything was worked out yesterday and the original hours stand: for August and September, the pool closes at 8 PM. Other hours remain the same: adult lap swim is 6 AM – 9 AM and the pool opens at 9 AM. The last day of the season is Sunday, September 16th.
This year we have a new pool committee and some new ideas that we’re excited to implement for the new season! Concessions! Ever been at the pool and were just dying for something to drink? Well, we’ve got you covered this year (well on Saturdays). On Saturday mornings, different committee groups within the neighborhood will sell small concessions at the pool to benefit that committee. We’ve always heard families want snacks/drinks at the pool so this will be a trial to see how it goes and whether we should expand it. The goal is for everything to be $1 to make it easy. Feel free to give us some feedback as you visit the concessions table! Swanky Sign In Shade Structure Last year was the addition of the sign-in table and everything looked pretty temporary. This year, we’ve upgraded the shade structure and the sign in experience. Thanks for making this adjustment last year a breeze! Lap Lane In the last couple of years, there’s always been a designated lap lane but sometimes it’s hard to find because it moves during swim team practices or group lessons. This year there will be added signage to make it easier! Residents shouldn’t play in this lane as it’s for lap swimming only. Enjoy those workouts! What’s with the line? You might notice a new line surrounding the pool painted on the pool deck. In past years, when guards called for a 10 minute break, there has been confusion as to what that meant; could kids sit on the sides with their legs dangling, sit on the stairs, etc.? This year we are aiming to clear all confusion by adding a line to the pool deck similar to many other neighborhoods. When the guard calls for the 10 minute break, all residents under 18 years of [...]
