There are only 11 days until opening (woohoo!) and still plenty to do at the pool to help us get ready. Please donate a little of your time this weekend.
Saturday 5/18 - 10 am to 2 pm
Sunday 5/19 - 2 pm to 4 pm
Thanks to the many great people who helped take the cover off the pool on Saturday. It was a great success! The pumps and filters are now running and getting the water clear for opening day.
We need more helpers tonight Monday, 5/6/2019, to help fold the giant pool cover and carry it into the shed. We need at least 10 people. We'll be there at 7 pm. Hope to see you there, too!
Keep your eye out for more opportunities to help at the pool over the next few weeks. Details will be coming soon!
Pool Cover Party, Spring 2019 - This is the one cleanup activity that absolutely requires numbers, so if you can be there, please do!
Join 20 of your favorite pool friends this Saturday, May 4 at 9:30 am to get the pool cover off the pool. We need to get the pump up and running to make sure the water is crystal clear before Memorial Day weekend.
We'll need at least 20 folks for about 30 minutes to help remove the cover. This will happen rain or shine!
*** Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help ***
The next spring clean-up is this Saturday, 4/27/2019, from 9am to 1pm at the pool.
Come spend a few hours with us weeding and playing in the dirt. The forecast looks great, and I heard there will donuts :)
See you there!
Thanks to all who helped at the pool last weekend. It was a great day to be outdoors working with friends!
The pool wintered well but is now thinking spring and more work needs to get done! The next pool party clean-up is this Sunday, 4/13, from 2-4. If you have a gas powered power washer and are willing to share it with the pool, please drop it off or bring it with you. We'll work on pulling vines, trimming hedges, weeding, power washing, and just having a good time being with friends.
We hope to see you there on Sunday. We can use your help!
Also, Early-Bird rates last through April 15th (this Monday!). Pay online or mail your membership to:

This coming Sunday, 4/7/2019, is the first spring clean-up of the season, and the forecast is looking fantastic! We'll be there raking and weeding from 1-4.
We need our members to help us out more than ever! There are tasks for everyone, even teenagers. Please join us and help get the pool ready for summer.
See you Sunday!
Happy Spring! It's time to shake off winter and plan for Spring Party Clean-Ups! The first one is scheduled for Sunday, April 7th from 1-4pm. Bring your rakes, gloves, and a little grit and help us de-winterize the pool grounds.
Our pool is successful because of the help of a few dedicated pool members. Volunteers are needed every spring to help with grounds, to help with mid-summer maintenance, and to help winterize the pool at summer's end. Currently, there are no requirements for volunteering, but there may come a time when this changes. We are highly suggesting that you volunteer this spring/summer. Don't let others do all the work. Contribute a little time, have a some fun doing it, and be the reason why the Blackridge Swim Club is our summer haven :)
Hooray for Spring!
How do you spell love?
