Vote Now for the Board of Directors
Be sure to cast your vote for the five open positions on the VPCA Board of Directors. The nominees are (in alphabetical order): Barbara Anderson, Nick Cortese, John Dean, April Gabor, John Hall, Rob Katz, Michael Purser, Matt Smith. Their bios and pictures are at 2013 VPCA Board Nominees, are posted at the pool, and are listed under “Voting Matters” under the Members Only tab after logging onto the website. Ballots may be cast until 9 p.m. on September 2. Voting instructions may be found at Venetian Pools Community Association Voting Instructions 2013 or under “Voting Matters”.
On-line voting is now available. A few adjustments were recently made, so be sure to check your votes if you voted on-line before last Friday. To vote on-line you need your username and password for the Venetian website. Contact Sophia Brothers Peterman, email@example.com , if you need to have them sent to you. The e-mail will come from Venetian Pools. Please save your username and password for the future—resending them is a manual process. After you log in, scroll down on your User Profile. You will see the spaces for five votes. Click on your choices. Then be sure to click on Update Profile at the bottom of the page after casting your vote. To double-check that your vote has been saved, log back into the Venetian website and see if your vote is listed in your profile.
Paper ballots for the VPCA Board of Directors are available at the Front Desk, by clicking VPCA Board of Directors Election Ballot 2013, or under “Member Matters” after logging onto the website. You can leave your completed ballot at the Front Desk or send it via snail mail to Sophia Brothers Peterman as directed on the ballot.
It is possible to change your vote until 9 p.m. on September 2. If you cast a paper ballot, you can submit another that is dated with a note that this one should be counted. You may also vote on-line—an on-line ballot will be counted instead of a paper ballot if a membership has submitted both. If you voted on-line, change your selection and click on Update Profile. The on-line votes will not be collected until 9 pm on September 2; they may be changed as often as desired until then.
Fall Extended Lap Swimming is On!
Yay! We will have Fall Extended Lap Swimming hours (no free swimming, only lap swimming). The cost is $35 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 $35 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 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 through Sunday, September 15. For the September pool hours, check the website.)
40 Mile Challenge T-Shirt Design Voting
We always knew that there was a lot of talent among the Venetian membership, and the six great entries in the 40 Mile Swim Challenge Tee Shirt contest prove it. Voting for the design is in progress and, if you are a participant (even if you aren’t going to complete the challenge), you can vote for your favorite. By now, you should have received an email with the six designs and voting instructions. If you have not gotten the email or want more information, please firstname.lastname@example.org. All six designs will be on display at the pool in the 40 Mile Swim Challenge Record Book. Voting will end tomorrow, Monday, August 26.
