    Hi all,
    We are very close to getting back in the pool. It is up to you to let me know if you will be participating. I have had several people let me know what they are up to but many I have not heard anything from. I hope you are ok! Please let me know one way or another!!!
    We are looking into pool time at Middleman Jewish Community Center and North Clackamas Aquatic Park. I need to get a hard number on how many swimmers would be attending each of these locations. I would like to go back to the monthly fee structure. If you are only participating one time per week you can still pay $15 drop in fee. The pools that I have been in contact with are charging $140 (NCAP) and $150 (MJCC) per hour. I am waiting to hear back from Bay Club for weekends, also, at $150 per hour. This Schedule would start next week. I do need a significant number team to return so that I don’t bankrupt myself:(
    Practice updates:
    These would be potential times based on what’s available and how many swimmers let us know which ones they would like to attend. So let us know ASAP:
    Mon 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demand
    Tue 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demandWed 7:15-8:15pm, possibly adding 8:15-9:15pm if more demand (or NCAP)

    (Wed 8:15-9:15pm) Dryland 7:30-8pm outside (Depends on which pool has most interest between MJCC or NCAP)
    Thu 8:30-9:30pm
    Fri 8:30-9:30pm

    Bay Club (no bathrooms or showers)
    Sat and Sun 2-4pm
    if more demand LOHS Pool- No word to when we can start using this pool. We may need to get an email campaign to get back into that Pool. I have sent many emails but I am a West Linn resident. It will probably take LO residents to email to make a difference.

    • Changes to fees include:
    • Monthly dues have increase due to increased pool rental and minimum wage increases over the past few years (some pools have gone up 50% since last year alone!). Meet fees will go up to $50 per meet. A reduced rate of $35 per one day meet. Meet fees have also increased over the last few years. Remember, the fee is a down payment for actual fees. Some meets are more (championship or 3 day meets) and some are less.
    • Thanks!
