What a great weekend to cap off an outstanding summer at the Blackridge Swim Club!
The weather was beautiful. Our lifeguarding team led by Annmarie kept things safe, clean, and running well. Our Barracudas swim team brought home a second consecutive 6-1 season, plus three new team records. And most importantly we have over 100 incredible members, many of them new, which is really the strength of our pool.
If the BSC has been important part of your summer, and you have the means, we need your help! We had a number of one time expenses this summer (pump repair, electrical work, higher payroll due to great weather), and we need $1000 to get us through the next two weeks to wrap things up.
If you can, email email@example.com and let us know how you can help this week, or donate online here.
Night at the Races: This Saturday!
Another great (and fun!) way to help both the pool and the BCA is to attend Night at the Races, this Saturday, September 10. Doors open at 5:00pm for dinner, Racing starts at 6:30 sharp!
If you are planning on going, but have not yet bought a ticket, email Dirk (firstname.lastname@example.org) so he can get an accurate count for food.
And, if you can help set up on Friday at 6:30pm at the BCA, that would be great too!
Finally, if you want one last look at the pool...Pool Cover "Party" tonight, Tuesday, 6pm.
We need to replace the cover to protect the pool over the winter. We need 20 folks to make this work well, so if you can come, please do! Should take no more than 30 minutes.
Any thoughts about how this season went? What we did well? How we could be a better "backyard pool" for you? Email email@example.com or fill out the member survey you should have received by email.
Again, thanks for a great season. Hope to see you this Saturday at Night at the Races! Stay tuned for other off-season events and get togethers to connect with your BSC friends.
Labor Day weekend is almost here. Enjoy these last days of summer at the pool! We're trying to pack in as much fun as we can. :)
Family Swim this Saturday 8 - 10 pm
... maybe a bit longer.
$10 a family and bring a snack to share!
Swim under the lights one last time.
Labor Day Picnic 4 - 8 pm
Night at the Races is Almost Here -- Name Your Horse Today!
Saturday September 10th - Doors open at 5:00pm for dinner, Racing starts at 6:30 sharp!
Labor Day is the Last Day...
The good news for you is Dirk will be at the pool in the afternoon on Labor Day to take ticket and horse orders and payments. (The bad news for him is that he will be up till the wee hours of the morning entering all the last minute information into the program...)
If you can get your orders in before Labor Day (send them to firstname.lastname@example.org) and just have to turn in money, it will make his life a little bit easier. ;-)
In summary, this weekend make sure you:
- Get your tickets by Labor Day for the discount.
- Donate lottery tickets for the lottery board.
- Sponsor and name a horse of your choice.
- Go here for more information!
BSC Member Survey
We've sent out a survey to all the members for whom we have email addresses.
If you did not get one for some reason, email email@example.com and we'll get it out to you! It takes about two minutes, and we really appreciate the feedback. We want the BSC to be even better for you next year!
Pool Cover "Party" -- 6pm Tuesday, September 6
We'll need at least 20 folks to help install the cover that protects our pool over the winter. 20 minutes to get it done. Many hands make light work. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
Summer's almost done, but there's still time for fun at the pool. See you this weekend!
