Wednesday December 18th....IT'S ON!!!
We are set for next Wednesday, December 18th, to begin our winter pool play. Here are some details and changes to the process.....(PLEASE READ)
8:30p - 10:30p (arrive by 8:15p to Pay your Fee)
$8.50 per person in the water (Boat or No Boat)
(spectators NOT entering the pool need not pay)
Wednesday January 8th.
Myself and 2 Mulberry Employees will be on-site at 8:00pm each Wednesday. They are asking EVERYONE to try and arrive no later then 8:25pm each night to pay your fee. At 8:30p each Wednesday the Mulberry Cashier will be leaving, so that they don't need to continue paying another Employee and 1 Life Guard will remain. ANYONE arriving after 8:30p will need to pay ME and I will in turn insure Mulberry is paid. They DO NOT want any payment going to the remaining Life Guard after 8:30p, so if in doubt, look for me and I'll let you know who to pay.
We all need to pay EXTRA attention this year to insure that NOT A SINGLE BOAT enters the pool without first REMOVING ALL RIVER WATER. There will be hoses set up on the North End, like last year, BUT we need to insure we take a few extra minutes the first time to eliminate ANY residual River Water prior to entering the Pool. This would also include rinsing our boats near the pool so that the water does NOT drain back in the pool. The residual pool water needs to be drained OUTSIDE or if your boat is small enough they said use the Shower Drains. The biggest hurdle we had to overcome this year in working with the New Management is the assurance that ABSOLUTELY NO RIVER WATER EVER ENTERS THE POOL AND ALL BOATS ARE NEARLY SPOTLESS OF DIRT PRIOR TO ENTERING THE POOL!!! Apparently any cross-contamination with even the smallest amount of river water forms an algae that is extremely difficult to remove and the cost associated nearly made them decide to eliminate this benefit for us. Even if you don't agree with this "algae" argument...I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT, it doesn't matter if you agree or not, it is the position of the Mulberry Management and that is all that matters. I NEED EVERYONE'S HELP WITH THIS, PLEASE insure YOUR boat contains NO river water and is SUPER CLEAN, and PLEASE HELP ME watch and regulate ALL other boaters to do the same. IF we want to protect this incredible option of winter practice, we need to take this serious and help insure everyone else does also, because if not they will shut it down next year. This is a very reasonable demand, NO RIVER WATER AND SUPER CLEAN, and should be easy for us all to accommodate if we all play an active role from week to week. Thanks guys, just wanting to make sure this can be an on-going option from year to year for us.
Please disregard the "other" thread and use only this tread as we move forward. The other thread is named nearly the same, sorry, but this is the only thread I will be monitoring and/or updating.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to text/call me any time.
Thanks everyone, see some of you next Wednesday the 18th.
