Pool Opens Today!

The Victor Gardens pool will open later this afternoon. Other than the obvious safety rules, 3 sometimes overlooked rules should be highlighted: 

1.  No Glass!  Please leave your bottles at home.  If broken glass is discovered in the pool area, the entire pool may need to be drained, cleaned, and refilled.  How will you explain to your neighbors that your Iced Tea bottle effectively closed the pool on the warmest weekend of the Summer?
2.  Swim Diapers!  This should be self explanatory.  Last year, unfortunately, the “Baby Ruth-in-the-pool” scene from the movie, Caddyshack, was re-created in our very own Victor Gardens Pool.  Pool contamination requires closing, draining, cleaning, and re-filling. It’s a process that’s expensive for the Association, and closes the pool for many days. It’s also completely avoidable.  Please put swim diapers on kids that need them.
3.  Math Quiz:  
Question:  What do 65 families in the Single Family Village plus all of our Victor Gardens Townhomes neighbors equal?
Answer:  A crowded pool.

Don’t feel like a summer “Grinch” when someone you don’t know tells you the old line, “I forgot my pool key at home.  Please open the door for me?”   In addition to overcrowding, allowing non-residents into Victor Gardens’ pool unfortunately presents a legal liability issue for all homeowners in the Association

Don’t forget the Pool Opening Fiesta, will be hosted by The Victor Gardens Social Committee on June 3.  Check our Upcoming Events page for details.
