May 11th 7pm Spring Member Meeting (at pool weather permitting)
PLEASE REGISTER: All members must register online. If you’re already registered, please check that all of your information is current. Please update the Other User field to include the relationship– i.e., Jane Smith (child), Joe Smith (grandparent), Ann Jones (nanny), etc. Please note that all allowable guests MUST be listed by name under your membership in order to swim.
ANNUAL DUES: $495 for full members, the same since 2014. Please pay by May 3rd to receive 10 free guest passes and use the pool in preseason. Online payment is preferred. You may still pay by cash or check, by dropping off a payment to Jen Schreiter 847 17th Ave. Everyone needs to register online and update your membership information, including all guests allowable by Northcrest bylaws– i.e., children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, foreign exchange students, nannies, and long-term house guests are allowed to use the pool as guests but are not required to pay guest fees.
SCHEDULE OVERVIEW: Early Season is planned to begin May 8th. May 11th at 7pm at the pool is the Spring Member Meeting. May 13th at 9am-noon is Annual Member Clean-up. Please try to pitch in for 1-2 hours to spruce up our shared resource. Memorial Day Weekend has extended hours. Regular Season begins June 3rd.
HELP GROW OUR MEMBERSHIP: Membership is currently about 80% capacity. At 90% and above, we can afford more improvements and upgrades. So please be an advocate for Northcrest. Let folks know about our relaxed, uncrowded, picturesque community pool. Contact Membership for a free Guest Certificate for potential members who want to investigate. Refer someone who buys a membership and receive 10 free guest passes.
TRIAL MEMBERSHIPS: These are now limited to 2 years. (If you already have a trial membership, you have 3 years as per previous policy.) The buy-in fee of $2,000 may be paid over 3 years. Please contact Membership for more information.
YOUTH PROGRAMS: We are thrilled to have Coach Casey direct the swim team and lesson program again in 2017.
POOL PARTIES VS LARGE GROUPS: The pool is available for private party rental Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday 7-9:30pm. Some members also host large groups that include many non-members and that take place during regular hours. The organizer of large groups are requested to contact the pool manager in advance so that sufficient lifeguards are on duty. Some feel these large groups are disturbing; others feel they are a privilege of membership. The Board will observe the issue this year. Please give us your input too.
CONSIDER JOINING THE POOL BOARD: Members of the board are volunteers. They meet monthly from February thru October. Serving is an excellent way to meet neighbors and contribute to the community. The current board consists of: Stephen Brown (President), Angela Krull (Vice President), Katie Ward (Treasurer), Joan Clissold (Secretary), Russell McSweeney (Facilities), Quinette Henshas (Swim Club), Cyndi Bestvina (Swim Team), Kim Strand (Membership/Marketing), and Ulrich Rassner (Planning/Improvements). Please contact a Board Member about the possibility of joining for 2018.
