Greetings Old Farm Swim and Paddle Tennis Club Members!
Despite the cold February weather, the Board of Directors is already hard at work planning for the 2015 swim season. I’d like to start by welcoming our newest Board member, Cindy Zelaya, who will be working as our Director for Special Projects. She replaces Suzanne Stack who retired from the Board last year. We also welcome Shannon Dietrich as our new Bookkeeper. She replaces Mary Beth May who served as our bookkeeper for several years. Thank you for a job well done and welcome to our new Board members.
As we finalize the budget for 2015 and prepare to announce our dues structure, let me tell you about what we are planning. First and most important, we have discussed with Georgetown Aquatics, our Management Company, the importance of the guard staff enforcing all the pool rules. We want to make sure your safety is our first priority and enforcement of the rules will help provide the safe environment we all want.
We are presently configuring new membership management software for the 2015 season that will allow for more controlled access to the pool. This software will require members to electronically check-in upon arrival at the pool. We will soon be providing more information on this software, the membership renewal process, the 2015 dues, and the check-in procedure.
As for physical changes and upgrades for the 2015 season, we are currently planning on replacing the pool pump motors and filter system. The current system, although very effective, is 50 years old and has been expensive to repair and maintain over the years. In fact, last season we had to go to extraordinary means to keep the system functioning. The new filter system will be installed before the start of the season. We will also be purchasing additional round pool tables, chairs and umbrellas to provide additional seating around the deck.
We are planning several other modifications and upgrades, most of which might not be as obvious to you, but we hope will enhance your experience at the pool.
Looking forward to a great 2015 season!
