Who's intersted in pool time in Boulder?

Hey all,

I've been talking to the folks at the Boulder Elks Club about reserving some pool time for boaters, and they are interested. I agreed to gauge the interest to see if boaters want the option, and if so, what a reasonable fee might be. Let me know what you all think, and I'll let you know what is decided!

More so in winter and shoulder seasons. Hard to justify much over ten bucks

I would definitely sign up for a few sessions. There are a bunch of people who want to learn to roll, but it's hard to get any mind share during ski season. Middle of the summer, when it's good and hot, and most of the natural flow has started to dry up, is a great time to teach friends, kids, and future ex-wives...

Dave's right about the $10. Meyer's Pool is $9 (even for little kids...). But the last time I went to Meyer's, I counted more than 50 boats in the water. Seems like there's a lot of demand out there.

Interested. I asked about pool sessions at the EBRC desk a couple years back. The lady told me that they had them at one point but stopped out of concern that the kayaks would put algae in the pool which would then create a "super strain" of algae. The super algae would then drain into the local ecosystem and create an environmental disaster. I couldn't believe it, but then realized where I was and just smiled.
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

I just made an effort to understand the super strain algae logic, but I can't figure it out.

What is a disaster is the fact that Boulder can't get a pool session going. Solid work trying to get something started. I'd definitely attend in the winter months, something like Nov-Apr. $10-$15 sounds reasonable, but more likely to go closer to $10. Maybe if we had a pool we could even get a kayak polo league going and finally be as cool as the Ft. Fun guys.
