Q. Why can we only earn thirty guest passes? Why can't we buy more than that
if we want?
A. The club is primarily for the use of members. Guest passes are benefits granted to members. Limits are set so that there is minimal impact on members.

A. $5 for one guest pass.
Q. How do I sign up to volunteer and earn guest passes?

· Email the appropriate committee (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com). Include the preferred event, date, shift and member number. Confirmation will be sent.

· Ask a manager for additional opportunities.
Five guest passes are awarded for each adult hour worked (maximum of 30 guest passes in one season).

Q. How do I book a private party?
A. Contact the social chair - firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the season officially opening, during the season contact the Manager.
Q. Why do I have to take a shower before going in the pool?
A. If we all do a good job of taking showers, the pool will remain much cleaner!
Q. When are we going to pave the parking lot?
A. Cost has always been the main issue. It is very expensive to do. The membership rejected a proposal to pave the parking lot in September, 2009.
Q. Why arenít we open in September?
A. We are not open in September because we have no staff available to work since our managers and college students are back in school and the high school students activities begin.
Q. Can I bring floats into the pool?
A. Floats can be brought on Wednesday nights during Coney/Float night only. Having floats in the pool is a safety concern because lifeguards cannot see around and under them. They also offer a false sense of security to less able swimmers who find themselves "floating" into deeper water than they can comfortable manage.
Q. Can I drink at the club?
A. Drinking of any non-alcoholic beverage is allowed at the pool. The membership of the club rejected the proposal to allow alcoholic beverages in January, 2007.
Q. How can I be on the board or volunteer ?
A. Any member in good standing may volunteer for the club and may serve on the Board of Directors. Notices for volunteers are posted through out the season. Elections of Directors are held in September at the Annual Meeting and nominations are sought usually in August. All members are welcome at all Board meetings which are held monthly usually on the second Tuesday of the month.
Q. Who can use the chairs??
A. The lounge and upright chairs are for the use of Adult members and guests. Children (under the age of 18) should use towels and the ground for sitting.
Q. What if I want an umbrella moved or raised or lowered?
A. Ask a manager who will assist you with this. Only trained staff should operate the heavy umbrellas for your safety and the safety of others.
Q. Can I use a mask or swim fins in the pool?
A. No, masks cover the nose. Goggles that do not cover the nose may be worn. Fins are not permitted except during lap or adult swims.
Q. Why can't I eat or drink on the concrete pool deck?
A. This is violation of State and County Health Codes. Food or beverage crumbs or debris on the deck surface can enter the pool and cause bacterial growth.
Q. My guests are not swimming, why do I have to pay for them?
A. All guests in the club are using the facilities, whether chairs, tables, restrooms or other. They are taking space which could otherwise be used by a member, hence the guest fee for all.
