The Board of Director nominee statements and pictures, Amendment 11, Amendment 12, the voting instructions, and FAQs regarding voting are found on the pool bulletin board.

A link to download a paper ballot is found under “Voting Matters” on the website. Paper ballots are also at the pool front desk.
4:30 Opening on Weekdays
The pool now opens at 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. As more and more of our guards return to school and college, staffing becomes more difficult. I apologize for the incorrect hours that were on the calendar earlier this week. The calendar should be correct now.
Fall Extended Lap Swimming is Back!
Yay! We will have Fall Extended Lap Swimming hours (no free swimming, only lap swimming). The cost is $25 per person. Please make your check out to “Venetian Pool” and write “Extended Swim” and the name of each participating member/s on the memo line. Bring your check to the pool front desk and have your name added to the Fall Extended Lap Swimming List.
Fall Extended Swim Procedure: check in at the front desk with your finger scan. The Fall Extended Swim List will be checked for your name. If you have not paid and your name is not on the List, you must pay the full $25 per person before entering. Your name will then be added to the List for the remainder of the Fall Extended Swim. The Fall Extended Swim hours are posted on the pool calendar on the website and are below:
Monday – Friday September 4-7 and 10-14 4:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Monday – Friday September 17-21 and 24-28 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Sunday September 15-16, 22-23, 29-30 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
(We plan to have the pool open for all members from 12:00 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9.)
Thanks to everyone who made last week’s Luau a success, especially Quinn Postero, Becky and Rick Smith, Stacey Stevens, Stacey Appelson and Beth Fucile. Thanks also to the Dammages and the Grits for the amazing entertainment.

These will be passed on to the new Board during its September meeting, giving them a head start for 2013. Hit reply and send in your thoughts!
