Thanks to the help of a number of folks, the motor failure on the pump kept us out of the water for only two days. Granted, they were two really hot days, but we were back up and running for some weekend swimming!
Special thanks to Tony Bigos, Linda Bauer, Julianne Liberatti, Maria Taylor, Dirk Page, and Pat Cummings for all helping in getting us up and running.
Also, thanks goes out to Industrial Pump and Motor Repair (www.industrialpumpandmotor.com) for getting our motor diagnosed and repaired in such short order!
Home Swim Meet Week
It was already a busy swim meet week with home meets on Tuesday and Thursday. Now, due to thunderstorms interrupting last week's meet with Park, we'll be having one on Wednesday as well!
That means the pool will be closing at 5pm for these three final home meets of the season.
So, grab a walking taco at the concessions stand, buy a 50/50 ticket, and cheer on our kids!
Rescheduled Teen Night This Friday, July 22
Summary of this week and beyond:
Night at the Races Request
Last week's newsletter highlighted the 2016 version of Night at the Races: September 10th at 5pm, with races starting at 6:30pm.
The Racing Commission is looking for lottery tickets and has 119 horses left to sell...
For the Night at the Races we are planning a lottery ticket board raffle this year. We will have at least $100 in tickets on the board. To widen the area of sources, and the variety of tickets, and to defray the cost of pulling it together, we are asking members of the BSC and BCA to donate 1 or more scratch off tickets to the cause. Tickets can be dropped off at the guard’s table, noon till 8:00 pm, during normal pool hours (you don’t have to be a pool member to drop off tickets) or contact the racing committee at RaceNight@blackridge-bca.org to coordinate a drop off.
If you can’t make it to the event on September 10th, donating lottery tickets is an easy way you can support us and help make the event successful. Of course naming all the horses you purchase takes a bit more effort, but you can win $25 for your efforts. Owners need not be present to win. Beat the Labor Day rush, purchase your horses now.
