Cool Pool News – 2022 – No. 5

The pool is open and the weather is hot
So there’s no better place to be
Than enjoying the waters, with family and friends
Broyhill Crest Pool is the best, we believe!

Welcome to summer 2022. The pool opened last Saturday at 11 a.m., and for the second year running, Maia Sandoval-Moshenberg was the first kid in, and Debo Burk, the first brave adult!
Congratulations to everyone who showed up to jump in at 11 a.m.

Thank you to all, for your patience as we introduced you to the new membership sign-in system.  Finally, we are in the 21st century. A round of applause to our pool clerk – Maria Ferrante – who worked for months to get MemberSplash up and running, and was at the pool everyday Opening Weekend overseeing its implementation.

Also, a huge welcome to so many new members/families this year.  It is great to have you join us.  Because there are so many, we thought it timely to explain some of the
RULES OF THE POOL:

1)  Please, no food or drinks of the pool deck, including in the baby pool area.  Water only is permitted. This is to keep the bees at bay, and it also a county rule. You may eat anywhere outside the fence line to the pool. Kathy’s Korner (the area where they snack bar is located) has tables and chairs aplenty. Or take the path down towards the pavilion and you’ll find plenty of eating areas around. Tables in the pavilion can be used, unless pavilion has been booked for a private event. Also, there are several tables on the grass behind the deep end of the pool.  

2)  No running on the pool deck.  You may hear the guards blow the whistle to stop little members running! This is for their safety and all around them. We must be courteous to young and old alike, and don’t want anyone falling, or causing someone else to fall.

3)  Please keep out of the lap lane if you are just enjoy the general swim area. The lap lane is kept open for any members who wish to swim uninterrupted! There is a sign up board for lap times on the table outside the guards office.

More explanations next week! This is just a start. No-one is in trouble if you are unaware of the rules – but we just want to make your visit as enjoyable as possible!

FIRST HAPPY HOUR OF 2022
Every Friday, we welcome pool members to Happy Hour from 6 p.m.  If you choose to order dinner from the Food Truck, come on in afterwards and enjoy dinner ‘al fresco’ with friends and family. Or bring your own dinner and snacks.  All welcome – enjoy an evening with friends and neighbors – and meet new people!  We gather at Kathy’s Korner.  Beverages can be enjoyed – but please – NO GLASS CONTAINERS.  No bottles or glasses.  Think ‘outside the box’ – coffee cups are not just for coffee….. 🙂
