April 2016 Update

Apr 24, 2016   //   by President   //   Notes from the President  //  No Comments
Hello Old Farm Members,

As the weather has gotten nicer and we approach opening day, the board has been busy preparing for the 2016 season.  Here are a few points of interest:

 

Early Bird Season Ends Saturday, April 30

Please get your dues payments in as soon as possible to take advantage of early bird rates.  If you have membership questions, please e-mail our membership volunteers at membership@oldfarmpool.org.

 

Membership Cards for Front Desk Check-In

As you know, we began using a barcode-scan entry system last year.  Your barcode cards from last year may be used again this year (and for years to come).  Nevertheless, some of you reported that the barcodes on the key tags have worn off and are unusable.  If you have experienced this problem, please see the front desk staff to obtain a new card.  New members may also obtain their membership cards from the front desk staff.

 

Update on Improvements

Installation on our new pool water heaters is nearly complete, and we expect to have them operational on opening day (Saturday, May 28).  You also may have noticed that our paddle tennis courts are undergoing a complete renovation.  We expect this work to be completed within a week.

 

Calling All Gardeners!

Board member Tom Walsh has undertaken a beautification project for the club’s grounds.  If you have green thumb, and you are interested in volunteering your gardening skills and/or plantings for the betterment of the club, please contact Tom at torger@verizon.net.

 

Swim and Dive Team Registration (and information about our other programs, too!)

Registration night for the Old Farm Eagles Swim and Dive Team will take place on Thursday, May 5 at 7:00 pm at Farmland Elementary School.  If your children haven’t previously participated, please consider this great opportunity for summer fun and exercise.  Our swim and dive teams are open to children of all ability levels.  We will also have information available about our masters swimming program, adult and kid triathlon training, and water aerobics classes.

 

Rockin’ 2016 Kickoff Party – Mark Your Calendars

On Saturday, May 21 at 6:00 pm, we’ll be hosting our annual kickoff party at the pool.  This year, we’re excited to have a great local band, Driven to Clarity, providing the music.  This promises to be a great time, so make sure you buy your tickets here.  This event is open to non-members, as well, so invite your friends!

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the pool!

 

John Hudalla

Looking Forward to the 2016 Season

Feb 21, 2016   //   by President   //   Notes from the President  //  No Comments

Greetings Old Farm Swim and Paddle Tennis Club Members!

My name is John Hudalla, and I am the new President of Old Farm Pool and Paddle Tennis Club.  I am taking over this position from Bruce Kay, who was the Club’s President for over a decade.  On behalf of the Board of Directors, I’d like to thank Bruce for his dedication and tireless work as our leader over those years.

In 2016, we welcome three new board members:  Amy Ruther and Tom Walsh will be our membership chairs, and David Markert will be responsible for the Old Farm dive team.  They replace Bruce Kay, Griff Lindsay, and Eric Forsythe, who retired from the board.  We thank Griff, Eric, and Bruce (again) for their efforts on behalf of the Club.

The Board has some exciting updates about the 2016 season.  This Spring, we will be performing a comprehensive overhaul and upgrade of our platform tennis courts.  This will include resurfacing of both courts, lining both courts with platform tennis and pickleball regulation boundaries, replacement of all screens, and installation of locking snowboards.

We are also excited to announce that we have purchased pool water heaters that will be installed and operational by opening day of the pool season.  As you may recall, we held a referendum of the membership in November, and the overwhelming majority of responding members (82%) favored installing pool heaters.  We expect that the heaters will make for a much more pleasant swimming experience early in the season.

Our annual membership season will begin in March, and we will be using the same online membership system that we used in 2015.  Be on the lookout for information on how to rejoin for the 2016 season.

The Board is looking forward to a great 2016 season.  Please feel free to contact me at president@oldfarmpool.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Regards,

John Hudalla
