40-Milers: Tote Bags Are at the Pool
The tote bags for those who have achieved their 40 mile goal for 2016 will be at the pool, today. I hope to have them there at 4:30 but I’m having a medical procedure and I’m not sure what time I’ll get there. Please pick yours up and be sure to cross your name off the list at the front desk when you do. You may pick up your bag at any time the pool is open until September 30.
All bags not picked up from the pool by September 30 will be left at the pool over the winter and you will have to wait until next season to get yours.
Congratulations on a great swim season!

Fall Extended Lap Swim Begins Today
Beginning today, September 14, from 4:30 until 7:30 PM weeknights, and from 1:00 until 4:00 PM on weekends, the pool belongs to lap swimmers who participate in Venetian’s annual Extended Swim.
The weather is usually beautiful and, though the water may become colder as September progresses, this is some of the best swimming of the season, with blue skies, gentle breezes, and only the sound of hands and feet entering the water. This year, the cost is $35 per person and you can turn in your check at the front desk. When you write your check, be sure to write Extended Swim on the memo line.
Extended swim concludes on Friday, September 30th.
- Wednesday, September 14: Board Voting Ends
- Wednesday, September 14: Extended Lap Swimming begins
- Monday, September 19: VPCA Annual Meeting 7 PM, Pool Deck or Dance Hall
- Friday, September 30: Extended Lap Swim Ends and Pool Officially Closes
