The End is Near
It’s sad, but the end of the Venetian summer season is near. It ends at 9 p.m. this Monday, Labor Day, September 3. The following weekend, September 8 and 9, is a bonus weekend, with the pool being open to all members from noon – 9 p.m. that Saturday and Sunday. Just have to get a few more laps in under the blue sky? See below for the Fall Extended Swim details.
Last Chance to Vote!!!
As of last Sunday evening, about 125 votes had been cast. There are 500 memberships, so for all of you last minute folks (yea, I’m one of them…)—this is the time to submit your ballots. Let’s see if we can do it. Let’s get a quorum vote of the membership! It’s too late to put your ballot in the mail; those must be received by tomorrow, September 1. But you have until 9 p.m. this Monday, September 3, to vote on-line or put your paper ballot in the locked ballot box at the front desk at the pool. For instructions on changing your vote before the deadline, please see the Voting FAQs.
At the pool—blank paper ballots are at the front desk. Hit reply to this eSplash if they have run out and we’ll get you more.

Fall Extended Lap Swimming
The Fall Extended Lap Swimming hours (no free swimming, only lap swimming) begins this Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. Any lap swimmer may participate, even if you did not sign up earlier. 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.
