November Newsletter 2019

Club Reminders & Announcements


  • We ask that all members lock up all their belongings at all times. This includes while you are in the shower.
  • Due to many member requests, we hope to install a self-serve ice and water filling station. We have started working on this project.
  • Here are few reminders as requested by fellow club members:
    -Please obey the round-a-bout directions in the parking lot. Even if someone is being dropped off in front of the club, please be patient.
    -Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough. Cold season has begun and fellow members want to avoid shared germs.
    -Leave the electric vehicle parking spots for electric vehicles.
    -Leave the club newspapers at the front desk when finished

Aquatics Update


Cold weather is upon us! Our pools and hot tubs are still toasty warm and inviting though. If you are looking for a great way to start your morning, check out our Adult Group Swim on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 – 10:00! We also have one more session of our After-School Swim Academy for kids starting on November 12th.

As always, we appreciate everyone being friendly and sharing lanes when necessary. Remember that if you are waiting for a lane, there may be someone else already sitting by the pool waiting for a spot, so double check before you jump in.

Enjoy the water!
