We are looking forward to seeing you and your swimmers at Time Trials this Saturday morning.  The meet starts at 8:30 am at Old Farm.  Warm-ups start at 7:45am.  We are having an “Old Farm” only time trials this year.  The good news is that the meet should be short. Because it is just Old Farm swimmers, we need more timers. I have tried to assign timing based on your requests, but would greatly appreciate it if you could time the entire meet, if possible.

We will try to place veterans with new swimming parents whereever possible there will be no concession, so please bring drinks/snacks for your swimmers.

  • Referee Extraordinaire: Larry Washington
  • Sharp Shooter Starter: Lou Charlip

S&T experts:

  • 1st half:  Batwinis, Lindsay

Good Start for the 2011 Season

Jun 9, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events), Notes from the President  //  No Comments

The 2011 season is underway and we have certainly gotten off to a good start.  Swim and Dive team practices are held in the afternoons until Montgomery County Schools close and then we start morning practices in addition to afternoons.  Our swim team has close to 125 swimmers and we have 45 registered divers.  Those are great numbers!

Membership is is on track and right now we have almost the same number of members as we ended the 2010 season.  Several of our returning Temporary Members have joined us as full Continuing families and we continue to look for our friends and neighbors who might be interested in joining.  Just a reminder, that if you recommend a family that joins, as a “thank you”, we will give you a Guest Pass good for 10 guest visits.  Purchased individually, that is a $50 value.

In the next few weeks there are many social activities coming up including the Wine & Cheese on Saturday June 11th.  Pool closes for preparation at 5:30 pm on Saturday.

In only three weeks is our busiest day of the summer, July 4th!!! The committee is already starting to work of preparations for another fun-filled day of activities for our members and guests.

The Adult Luau is Saturday July 16th.  More to follow as we get closer to that event.

Tuesday Night Volleyball Starts This Evening

Jun 8, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   General Announcements (pool closings, events)  //  No Comments

For those who have visited the pool, you may have observed the beautifully redone flagstone area, the new white canopy tents, and the vibrant blue umbrellas…but you may not have noticed that we completely refurbished the beach volleyball area. We added a ton (literally, for those of us who shoveled it into place) of new, soft sand to the court in the off-season, making it feel like you are just off the ocean.

We will be launching our regular Tuesday night volleyball games this evening @ 7 PM. We usually play until about 8:30 or 9 PM, so come join us. This is the only email that will be sent to the general membership. If you wish to receive a weekly reminder of the volleyball game, please just email me directly (patmay@gmail.com), and I will add you to the list.

Thanks, and I hope to see many of you on the beach at the pool this evening.
