Pool Parking Lot Closed Thursday and Friday
The pool parking lot will be getting much-needed sealing and striping today, Thursday, and Friday. No cars or people will be able to access the parking lot during this time.
40 Mile Swim Challenge
The second annual Venetian Pools 40 Mile Swim Challenge is now registering for the 2013 season. Those who did it last year will tell you how much fun it was. Best of all, there is no charge to you, no age requirement, no obligation to finish, and, if you sign up before May 11, your first mile is absolutely FREE! So, why not sign up now?
To join this year’s challenge, email firstname.lastname@example.org and a record sheet with your name will be waiting for you in the notebook at the front desk on Opening Day, May 11. There will also be blank sheets for registering at the pool. Note that signing up after May 10 will not earn you a free mile. For more information and FAQ’s look under the Events tab.
New this year, scales will be in both locker rooms for an optional way to keep track of your health. Swimming is great cardiovascular exercise without undue stress on most of your body. Plus, you can do it lying down in cool water. What could be better on a hot July day?
Last season, pool members swam a total of over 2200 miles; we can exceed that this summer. If we all swim 4000 miles, we can make it to Dublin, Ireland. A few miles more takes us to Paris, France or Madrid, Spain. Wouldn’t you like to go there with fellow Venetian swimmers?

Thanks for your Work Day Efforts
A HUGE thank you to all the members who volunteered their time last Saturday to get the pool ready for the 2013 summer season. We had a really great turnout. The list of what was accomplished is incredible…..the snack bar is now sparkling and ready for the season, kick boards were scrubbed clean by the kids , benches were refinished, planters were planted and that massive pile of junk behind the pool house is gone!
Found: Venetian Guest Passes from Work Day
Venetian Pool Guest Passes were found in the parking lot of Medlock Park last Sunday. We are guessing they were from someone’s hard work the day before. Click reply if they are yours.
