Mid-June 2016 Update

Hello Old Farm Members,

We’re off to a great start to the 2016 season. I’d like to take this opportunity to provide a few reminders about our rules:

No Glass Containers.
Please transfer all liquids to plastic or aluminum containers. This is a Montgomery County regulation that we must enforce, or else we can be shut down by the County.

Increased Supervision of Water Guns.
We’ve seen increased use of water guns, and a corresponding need for our lifeguards to intervene when they are used. We ask parents to closely monitor your child’s use of water guns and to consider whether your child is responsible enough to use a water gun. Water guns should only be used within the pool, and not on the deck or between the deck and the pool. Lifeguards have discretion to confiscate water guns (or any other pool toys) if they are being used to the detriment of other members or during crowded times. Based on feedback we are receiving from the lifeguards, we may have to ban water guns if they continue to be a problem, so kindly help us keep water gun use well controlled.

Age Limit on Shuffleboard and Cornhole Equipment.
We’d like for all members and guests to be able to enjoy the amenities at the club. However, we have found that some of our youngest members have found alternative ways to enjoy our shuffleboard and cornhole equipment. Unfortunately, this has resulted in us having to completely replace the gear. As such, the Board has decided to implement an age limit on the use of shuffleboard and cornhole equipment; starting now, the equipment cannot be checked out by children younger than 13 years old. Kids under 13 years of age can still play, but we now require an adult to check out the equipment and to be present at all times. Thanks for your understanding.

In other news, masters swimming and water aerobics are just starting, so please see our website for more details if you are interested in these programs.

This Friday, we’re having another Food Truck Friday from 5:00-7:00 pm. Pizza Brama will be at the pool serving pizza, roasted appetizers, salads, and desserts from their wood-fired oven. Please see their menu here: www.pizzabrama.com.

See you at the pool!

John Hudalla
