An (almost) Mid-Summer Update

Parkland Improvements

Our parkland enthusiasts have been busy making the area around the pool prettier. Thanks to Lee, Jen, Conny and Ben and everyone else who helped.

Tennis Court Lights

The tennis court lights on the east side have been broken for a while. One was hit by a tree and the other had electrical problems. Both of these issues have now been fixed and we’re good for late night play again.

PS: If anyone is looking for a way to help, the inside of the tennis courts needs weeding 🙂

Pool Pump (Vacuum)

Those of you who use the pool have probably noticed that the vacuum hasn’t been working well. We have a build up of sand and other grit in the bottom that the skimmers don’t get.

There was a concern that the problem may be a ruptured pipes between the pool and the pumps. We had the pipes scoped recently and they are intact. This is good since fixing the pipes would be expensive. Unfortunately, it means that we need to replace at least one of the pumps. We’re working to get this scheduled now.

Bridge

As you may recall, we had a surprise last summer when the city removed the bridge between the tennis courts and the condos. We worked with the city over the winter and made good progress towards a replacement bridge but unfortunately the quotes came in much higher than the city expected and this has caused a delay. We are continuing to work with the city but we cannot provide an estimated date for the bridge replacement at this time.

Swimming and Tennis Lessons

If you are interested in swimming or tennis lessons, there is still time to sign up. Please see the staff at the pool for sign-up sheets and schedule information.

Association Fees

Those of you who already sent in cheques may have noticed that we haven’t deposited them yet. Sorry for the delay. We are in the process of changing banks and this should be complete very soon.

Also, don’t forget that fees are due Aug 1st.

Pickle Ball Lessons

One of our community members has offered to run a Pickleball lesson for anyone who is interested. Come out and make use of the new Pickleball lines, learn a new sport and meet some new neighbors!

Wednesday July 5 @ 7:00PM

Pickleball Trial

Some members of our community have expressed an interest in playing Pickleball on the tennis courts. Since this sport is growing in popularity, and there is demand from our members, we are going to run a trial over the summer.

This trial involves temporary court lines overlaid on one of the tennis courts and a portable net that can be brought onto the court. Additionally, there will be racquets available in the pool house that can be signed out.

The temporary lines should in no way impede tennis play but if you have any concerns please let a board member know.

Spring Parkland Cleanup

Spring Parkland Cleanup

Saturday, June 3rd @ 10AM

Meet at the pool. Please bring your own gloves and gardening tools. Yard waste bags will be provided.

No gardening skills are required. We have lots of other tasks such as cutting back bushes and trees.

We would also appreciate donated perennials – such as tall grasses etc – for our gardens around the pool and tennis court area.

Pool is Open for 2017

We’re happy to report that the pool passed the city inspection today and is now officially open for 2017!

For now, the pool will be open on weekends from 12-4PM (including all three days this weekend). The hours will be extended to cover weekdays once the weather gets better.

Welcome to summer.
