Early Morning Lap Swimming Will Continue Until August 26th – If you support us!

Aug 12, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), Masters Swim & Aerobics  //  No Comments

Back by popular demand (we hope!). We will continue to offer early morning lap swimming on Monday-Wednesday-Friday until August 26th from 5:45am-7:15am.

We must have a minimum of 7 participants…

The cost per person will be only $25 for the entire period (cost covers all 6 sessions). Mina Erickson, who has been training our Master Swimmers will continue to oversee the Master swimmers and watch any others who want to come up and swim a few laps before going to work. Please bring your cash or check (made out to Old Farm Pool) with you on Monday morning when you sign in.

 

 

You Ready to Pick Crab?

Aug 1, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events)  //  No Comments

Old Farm Pool is planning a cooperative crab feast. What is that? We will get crabs to the pool, but would expect help with set-up, clean up, and drinks/sides from all participants.

The 2 dates are a Monday or Tuesday, August 15 or 16. This is because we expect the price to be less on these days, as opposed to Friday or Saturday prices.

This is not intended as a money maker, just a ice chance to get together and partake in a local tradition. In order to work this out, we need a real number of who is wanting to participate and commit to coming. Kids 9 and over count as one eater.

Please think about this, and send your name and number of pickers to conniej23@yahoo.com. Comments are welcome.

Message from the President: Pool Security

Jun 27, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), News  //  No Comments

In the past few weeks I know that we have been bombarding you with lots of messages about pool activities.  Hopefully you find these informative and relevant.  This message is being sent as a reminder, not just as an update on pool matters, but something that affects the entire neighborhood.

Vandalism at TildenWood Pool
For those of you who may not have heard, our neighbors at TildenWood pool had vandals break in early last week and did some significant damage to their property and equipment including throwing furniture in the pool, breaking doors into their building, throwing a laptop, cash box and other office equipment into the pool and scrawling graffiti on the walls.  Additionally, cars in the neighborhood with TildenWood stickers were targeted for damage with windows smashed and other costly damage.  The TildenWood Board of Directors is working with the police and hopefully they will find those responsible.

Vandalism at Old Farm Pool
Pool security is something we take very seriously at Old Farm.  We have the appropriate signage, barbed wire along the fenceline and lighting in the evenings and we have invited the Montgomery County Police to frequently drive up to the pool in the evenings.  Having said that, we are not without incidents.  This past weekend a members car was broken into while parked along Swim Club Way during the recent home swim meet.  As a reminder, when you drive to the pool, please make sure your car is locked while in the parking lot or along the access road, and make sure nothing of value is left in your car.  Thank you for your continued support of the pool and please remember to secure your valuables.

Sincerely, Bruce
Bruce Kay, President
Old Farm Swim & Paddle Tennis Club
