Water Aerobics

Water Aerobics takes place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10am, weather permitting. Stefani is teaching again this year. While the pool is open, she will be doing water aerobics rather than the cardio class inside. Classes are $5 each, payable to Stefani. Once the pool closes on Labor Day weekend, she will resume her normal cardio schedule. For details, contact her at superstef7@gmail.com.

Note from the General Manager on June 13, 2022
Regarding the recent decision to ban balls at the pool, there were no complaints from "grumpy old people" or "senior members." The behavior was witnessed by staff members. The actions taken were done so to prevent injuries to others, and allow adults and children alike to enjoy the pool without concern or fear of being clobbered in the head with an object by children who were not being supervised by parents, and were uncooperative with staff on scene. The children were warned to be less aggressive and were allowed to continue playing, but they did not heed the warnings.
Only beach balls and noodles (as long as the noodles are not being used as swords or sabers or clubs) are allowed. The pool is for everyone to enjoy.
As far as covering the hot tub during the evening lap swim, my apologies as there was some miscommunication between the staff and myself. This has been corrected and the hot tub will be open until 8 pm. It is requested that lap swimmers do not linger until 8:30 as the pool and hot tub closes at 8 pm. Please be respectful of the staff's time.
Respectfully,
K.L. Shulman, CMCA
General Manager & COO

Note from the General Manager on May 4, 2022 
It was brought to my attention that on Facebook it was posted that the association was taking time away from open swim. This is not true. The truth is the open swim is gaining two hours. Last year we closed the pool from 10-12pm due to lack of staff. Open swim will start at 11 am on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays due to Water Aerobics, otherwise open swim is from 10 am to 7 pm. Swim Camp will be held 6/20-6/24 from 9-10 am for those four days only and lap swim on those days will be from 8-9 am.

Due to lack of staff there will be no recreation attendants on Monday thru Thursday. Office staff and Patrol staff will check on the pool once an hour and member/guest cards and short term rental receipts from the office or Pro Shop showing $5 paid for the swim day may be asked to be shown upon request. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday both pool gates will be manned and guest/members cards will be held by the gate keepers and returned when you leave the pool. If you need to leave the pool area to get food or drink (no alcohol allowed at the pool) you will receive a colored wristband for that day to re-enter the pool. We are trying to circumvent the issues from last year which includes; alcohol at the pool, refusing to tell staff their name or where they are staying, using foul language to the staff (three young staff members walked off the job) and refusing to leave the pool area when asked. You may use the upper deck if you want to have an adult beverage. Bottom line is to please follow the rules and you will have a great pool experience.

I hope everyone has a great summer using the pool and follow the rules that are posted on the gates and fences.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE POOL

* Your Pool card keys do not expire, they are good every year that you own your property. Please do not toss them out at the end of the year. They Cost $100 to replace.

* Due to the water shortage, please do not let your children play in the showers. They are for rinsing off only. Thank you.

* DO NOT HOLE-PUNCH YOUR POOL CARDS --This makes the cards inoperable/damaged. Pool Card Request Form states, “…if card is lost or damaged and agrees to pay the replacement cost of $100 per card…”

Note from the General Manager in June 2021:

Members and Guests,
Please see below, Association Rule 16.12:
16.12 All swimmers must wear swimsuits (no cut-offs). Dress must be consistent with, and appropriate for, a family-oriented environment. Appropriate clothing and/or swimwear shall be worn in the manner it was designed to be worn at all times. All swimmers with shoulder-length hair must be capped or otherwise controlled to the satisfaction of the recreation manager or lifeguards.
Please, no thong swimsuits. This is a family-oriented environment and we have not only members with children using the pool, but also guests. Please pass along to your guests that if they are in thong swimsuits they will be asked to cover up or go home to change. This is a family community and not a hotel or the beach.
Respectfully,

Note from the General Manager in June 2021:

Some people are confused about the pool and guests. Rules are in the lobby along with the pool hours.
If you are a member you must have a member card, picture ID and pool gate card to enter the pool. Hopefully you have signed a Liability Waiver but if not, we will have you sign one at the pool. The waiver is nothing new. Every year that the pool is open, a waiver must be signed. The waiver is kept on file for one pool season. If you are under 14 years of age, the parent has to accompany the child to the pool and sign a waiver for the child. Children over 14 may come to the pool without a parent but must show their guest card with their name on it, have a pool waiver on file with a parents signature, pool card and a picture ID..
If a guest from an STR wants to use the pool, guests are supposed to be registered each time there is a new guest(s) with the office per Association Rule, Article 22 (rules can be found at pinemountainclub.net). All guest cards MUST have a name on the card, tract and lot number and expiration date. STR’s can buy guest cards for $5 each when they register their guests with the office or if you allow your guests to use the pool, they can come to the office and purchase a guest card for $5 as long as the owner has registered them at the office. If they are not registered with the office, your guests will be turned away.
If your guest is using a member card and the name does not match the picture ID, your guest will be turned away. A member with their member card can bring up to six people in on their member card. Please bring a picture ID.
The reason we are following the rules so tightly is that in past years, some members gave their guest cards to their friends who were not members paying an annual assessment and then reported their cards lost and received more guest cards. One member had about 20 guest cards floating around. Members have a right to expect their amenities to be used for members and their guests only.
Article 22 has been in place since July 2019.
