*** Announcements for 8 September, 2016 ***


Dear fellow NSSC members,
 
Please find below this season’s final weekly announcements.
 
Thank you all for helping make this a great summer season.
 
 
Pool Countdown/ Splashdown!
There is ONE WEEKEND left to the pool season!
 
Hours:
Saturday, Sept 10 - 11am-9pm
Sunday, Sept 11   - 12pm-5pm
 
Dog Swim - Sunday, September 11 - 6pm (for members only)
 
Clean up/Pack away - Sunday, September 11 - 5-7pm. Members, please come by and help us close down the pool for the winter season. Any help would be appreciated. 

  
Goodbye Summer!
We will see you around our pool one more weekend (see hours above). Temperatures are supposed to be hot, so take advantage of this perk we are offering our members. This was our debut season with our brand new bath house. It is definitely an improvement from our old building which dated from 1957. The design may not be perfect; a couple of improvements will be implemented over the ‘down’ time (see information below). Look for a few emails (and our website: ns-sc.org) over the fall/winter/spring about a couple planned events at our pool and to help us get ready for next summer.
 
Thanks to all of you who helped make this summer fun. See you around the neighborhood!
 

Our Pool Operates on “volunteer power”
We understand that the pool fees are a challenge for some families. Our fees are similar to other pools; but our pool is opened more days and longer hours which make it a bargain!
 
The Board of Directors and workers you see around the pool, other than the lifeguards and gate staff, do NOT get paid for their efforts. Your fees go directly to pay the staff, operating costs and to keep the pool machinery running. We are essentially a ‘not-for-profit’.
 
Please consider helping next season—even for one task or a few hours--we need it!
 
We have the following positions available:
 
Board/Advisers/volunteer opportunities:
· Vice President (the perimeters can be your choice—this is a flexible position)
· Community Outreach (fundraising; planning restaurant nights; getting businesses to sponsor)
· Membership help (keeping track of guest fees; coordinating reserved parties)
· Operations help (general repairs around the grounds, carpentry, plumbing, electrical)
· Maintaining Playground area
· Lost and Found (cleaning it out and donating the items every 2 weeks)
·  Graphic Design (help with annual newsletter and weekly emails)
 
·  TEAMS:
o   Swim Team Asst Rep
o   Dive Meet Concessions (2 home meets per summer; Tuesday evenings)
o   Swim Meet Concessions (2 home meets per summer; Saturday mornings)
 
  
Winter Repairs
We have arranged for repairs and improvements to our new bath house. Like any renovation, decisions were made ‘on paper’ and some elements, we found, did not fit our needs.
 
The main project will be to improve the drainage and puddling on the floors in the bath rooms. Also, some drainage issues on the exterior decks and replacement of the ‘orangeburg’ sewerage pipes will be addressed. Our summer season of 2017 will be even better!
 
Thanks to the renovation committee and several Board of Director members for working all-year-round for our community pool.
 
Information: Bob Sweeney, Renovation Committee: robertsweeney2@gmail.com

 
Fall Cleanup Day – 19 November
Please mark your calendars--Fall pool clean-up day on Saturday, Nov.19 8AM-12 noon to reduce the work load in the Spring. A reminder will be sent out in November.
 
 
Best regards,

North Springfield Swim Club 






NS-SC Pool Renovation Project

   Winter 2016 -- NS-SC.org -- North Springfield Swim Club (NSSC) Project Renovation Update -- February 2016


After more than 50 years, our community swim club is going through a major renovation. Built in 1957 and one of the first original 5 community pools built in Northern Virginia, NSSC is finally having a face lift. As of January 1, demolition has taken place, dumpsters are in place, and roof trusses delivered! Mid-February, a roof will be placed over the entire bath house—previously it was “open-air” in keeping with the 1950’s style. Completely new, updated bath and changing rooms will be built and all areas will finally meet the ADA, handicapped accessible design requirements, that didn’t even exist when the original bath house was built. The construction is to be completed by opening day for the summer 2016 season.

The pool’s Board of Directors and the Renovation Committee, headed by Robert Sweeney (previous President), Kathy and Mike Dannholz, has been working tirelessly (and on a volunteer basis!) over the past several years, planning, getting funding in place, and preparing the grounds for this historic event. From several area businesses, 2 local North Springfield residents were selected to lead the project. Shamual Choudhury (Easton Drive) of Moore Architects is the lead architect and Steve Bowes (Atlee Place) of Phoenix Home Services, is the lead contractor.

Walk over to the site, at the intersection of Leesville Blvd. and Earlehurst Street, to check out the progress over the next several weeks. Updated photos will be added to the pool website during the spring as well:  ns-sc.org. Yes, neighbors this is really happening!

If you have any questions, contact Dana Cibulski, President, Board of Directors, NSSC <danacibulski@cox.net>
