Greetings OMSC Members,
We are about 3 weeks away from opening for the 2016 season; the pool opens on Saturday, May 28th at 11am. We are very excited for another fun summer pool season at OMSC. We will NOT be hosting a Community Pool clean-up day before the pool opens after all. We have been making steady improvements to the pool (new and repaired chairs and new umbrellas), and the pavilion (wood replacement, gutters, downspouts, staining, power washing, etc.), so things are looking spiffy already.
Here are a several updates, reminders and upcoming events:
1) In preparation for opening day and your first visit, please be sure to locate your pool tags. These tags are to be used year after year for entry into the facility. Each member of your family should have a pool tag and guest passes remain in effect the same as last year; 2 per Family membership and 1 per Senior membership. If you have guests beyond your allotted guest passes, entry is $5 per guest.
Tag Tip: Keep your tags on a key chain or carabiner clip with your swim bag so they are easy to locate each year.
2) 2016 Pool Hours of Operation are the same as last season. Following is a reminder for when school is in session.
MCPS school days:
Open: 3pm on days when MCPS is in session
Close: 8pm on evenings prior to MCPS school days
3) The Welcome Back Cookout is scheduled for Monday, May 30th at 1 p.m. This is a members-only event and the pool will provide food. If you have any interest in helping out, please contact Social via the website. We can always use help grilling, serving, setting and cleaning up after the event.
4) The Crab Feast has been scheduled for July 9th, so Save the Date!! The Social Committee has several other events in store for the summer season; movie nights, ice cream socials and numerous other family events. You can find a listing of events on the pool website.
Thanks for your feedback and support. See you soon at the pool!
