Summertime 2020 Update…of sorts
Let’s just get this out of the way. I personally think it’s a little over the top at this point. I think there are those who have clearly blown this out of proportion. Seriously, Murder Hornets? WTF! Maybe Manslaughter Hornets, or Accidental Death Hornets. But MURDER. That’s a little strong. I doubt 12 peer hornets could unanimously agree on that name.
Anyhow, the pool. Yes, about that.
So like many of us, we have few answers. The health and safety of our members is at the top of our list of important things (along with Ring Pops). As such we are looking to experts and local officials to guide our decision to open the pool this year. Given the effort required to open the pool and the constantly changing dynamics of the situation we are taking all of the early-season steps to open the pool on June 1.
What does that mean? It means the building is being dipped in Clorox, the pool is being filled and we’ve burned the lost and found. Experience so far has shown we could be allowed to open with little notice but with unique restrictions and we want to be ready.
In general, we will be following state, county and city guidelines. We will also be looking to public and private athletic facilities and pools to determine our best course of action. Beyond that, we are meeting daily and expect to have a plan in the next two weeks.
This sucks. We know it. You know it. But every email we have gotten over the past few months has been chill, cool and understanding. Thank you all for that. Suddenly being a volunteer who donates hundreds of hours to a local swimmin’ hole is a lot harder than expected. Patience and gratitude is the only thing that’s going to make this work out. Please order some of that from Amazon instead of toilet paper.
We will post updates here as soon as they are available. Duh.
PS. I just googled Murder Hornet for a pic for this post. Damn. I take it all back. Running for the hills could be warranted.
