Venetian eSplash 8.12.2013
Pool Hours; Snack Bar Hours Adjusted; Fall Extended Lap Swimming Sign-Up; Respect Your Pool; Annual Meeting Date Changed; Voting Starts Thursday; Future Events
The previously posted pool hours for Tuesday – Thursday of this week will remain from 3:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The Board took into account the difficulty staffing guards with the school and college start dates this year, the relatively low attendance last week between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and the budget. Note that, other than the Fourth, the rain did not affect the number of guards working nor the hours they worked this summer. The end of the season, once schools and colleges have begun, is always tough to staff, and the same end-of-season hours cannot be guaranteed year to year.
The pool will open at 1:00 p.m. this Friday, August 16. Next week, the weekday pool hours will be 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. (‘til 10 p.m. on Friday). Be sure to check the website, www.venetianpools.org for the up-to-date pool hours. Early morning lap swimming will continue on Monday – Thursday, 6 a.m. – 10 a.m., through the last week of August.
Snack Bar Hours Adjusted
The Snack Bar is now closed Monday – Thursday. Its hours on Fridays and the weekends will be variable, according to the weather. If the Snack Bar is closed and you really need a swim diaper, a bottle of water, or yes, even a King of Pops treat, check at the Front Desk and a guard will probably be able to help. Child labor laws limit the hours our back-to-school junior guards can work, so they can set their sights on the principal’s honor roll J.
Fall Extended Lap Swimming Sign-Up
Want to continue working on your flutter kick through the end of September? Be sure to e-mail John Dean, email@example.com , to sign up for the Fall Extended Lap Swimming (no free swimming, only lap swimming) by next Monday, August 19. The cost per person will be determined by the number of people participating. In the past, it has been $25-$50 per person. The Fall Extended Lap Swim will be cancelled if there is not sufficient interest.
The Fall Extended Lap Swim hours are posted on the website and are below:
Monday – Friday September 16 – 30 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Sunday September 21 – 22, 28 – 29 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
(The pool will be open for all members until Sunday, September 15. For the September pool hours, check the website.)
Respect Your Pool
This pool is your pool, this pool is my pool. And so it is with great sadness that I have to report that our newly-donated ping pong table was deliberately broken. Please treat the pool and its facilities as if it was your home and often remind your children to do the same.
Annual Meeting Date Changed
The Venetian Pools Community Association Annual Meeting for all members has been changed to Monday, September 16, 7 p.m., at the pool. At this meeting, the newly elected Board members will take office.
Voting Starts Thursday
