POOLS RE-OPEN ON SATURDAY MAY 28TH
Pool Hours of Operation: 10AM - 8PM
HOA management is pleased to announce the opening of the Lansdowne on the Potomac outdoor pools. The Coton Club and Potomac Club outdoor pools will be open starting Saturday, May 28th from 10AM to 8PM. This will be the daily pool schedule through Labor Day weekend, September 5th, 2011. Below please find a few reminders:
All residents should have their membership card with them to enter and use the facilities, but in the case of 12-15 year olds, this is an absolute requirement. To help alleviate any inconvenience, we strongly suggest residents who plan on using the facilities come to the Potomac Club to get photographed. Membership cards can only be issued/replaced at the Potomac Club.
All members' accounts have been electronically loaded with 10 guest passes which eliminates the need for the old plastic and paper passes. (If you have the old passes, they are still valid and will be honored) If you bring a guest, your guest pass account will be debited as you check in.
Designated Eating Areas at Lansdowne Pools
As in years past, there are two designated eating areas at the Potomac Club pools.
- Eating and smoking area adjacent to the volleyball court.
- Eating (non-smoking) area on the cement deck between the indoor pool wing and parking lot.
As before, the Coton Club eating area is located adjacent to the Coton meeting room beneath the awning.
Adult Swim Breaks
15 minute adult swim breaks will take place on the :45 of every hour in all pools (this includes the indoor pool). Swimming lessons will be exempt from these breaks as well as adult swimmers (16 years of age and older).
Lightning and Aquatic Safety
Lightning's behavior is random and unpredictable. Lightning is generally thought of as a threat to outdoor facilities; however there is a threat of electrocution to inside buildings as well.
Swimming pools are connected to a much larger surface area via underground water pipes, gas lines, electric and telephone wiring, metal fences, etc. This means that if lightning strikes the ground near an indoor pool, depending upon localized circumstances, it may be conducted to the building via the low resistance conductors previously mentioned
Consequently, High Sierra Pool Management will follow the same storm guidelines for the Lansdowne indoor pool as they follow for the outdoor pools. At the first sound of thunder or first sight of lightning, residents will be asked to clear all pools. Residents will not be permitted to re-enter the pools until 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or 1 hour after the last sight of lightning.
We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer!
Please note the Potomac Club pools will close at 3PM on June 4th for the Community Pool Party.
