Hello Rancho Families,
The pool has entered its peak season. The gates open each day at noon and close at 7pm, except on Wednesdays and Fridays when the pool is open until 9pm for our family nights. We held our first Luau. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate and the cold temperatures kept most members at home. I am sure this will be different at our next Luau on July 15th. Also that day, our Sea Otters swim team will compete in the championship meet. Hopefully, they will bring home the championship trophy again and we will have something to celebrate. Regardless, let’s make the next Luau a big party and enjoy our community. This year the staff will be responsible for the musical entertainment and some fun games.
We finished our annual Memorial Day BBQ and I know many of you enjoyed the music from our DJ and the lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs, and tri-tip. I’d like to thank all the volunteers who made this event a success. Get ready for our next event celebrating Independence Day on July 4th featuring again our DJ, games, drinks and great neighbors.
Last month we started a new activity for our members: “Parents’ Night Out”. Parents were able to drop off their kids at 7pm and pick them up by 11pm. Our staff entertained the kids with arts and crafts, movies and the game room. All in all this activity was a success and we had 14 kids happy to give their parents some free time. We will streamline our signup process and Parents’ Night Out will be back in July.
I am happy to announce that we can finally roll out our tennis program. While we had quite some difficulties finding the right person, I am happy to announce that we have Rachel Welch, one of our staff members, as our tennis coach. She started playing tennis at a very young age and I am convinced that she will be a great coach for the kids. If you are interested in signing up your kids, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our signup sheet at the club.
As the season goes by so quickly, the board and staff members are already planning for the end of the season. We will close the main pool at the end of September. However, I would like all of you to mark your calendars for our Labor Day party and Octoberfest which will be on September 23rd. Our pool will be still open that weekend and we are planning something special, so stay tuned. For now, enjoy the summer and the 4th of July celebration. I hope to see you around the pool.
