Here’s this week’s NS-SC.org Pool news…


UPDATE:  Wednesday, July 10, 2024 3:15 pm EST


The tree work is going well.  They started early this morning and are making great progress.

Dominion left about an hour ago and the pumps are now up and running circulating chlorine.  Due to the work still happening we will not open til tomorrow morning.


We are moving grill night to tomorrow (Thursday) evening and the pool will be open til 830 pm.


We look forward to getting back on a normal schedule for tomorrow. 

All swim and dive practices will be on a normal schedule.

At 8 pm EST Tuesday night, Dominion Power restored power to the pool. They worked all day to install two new poles, new transformers and new wires.

 

We hired a tree service today. But, because Dominion needed to use the entire parking lot, the tree company has to start tomorrow morning. This is a large project that requires a crane. They have to remove the fallen trunk from the lot, then cut down the rest of the large diseased tree, then cut out a smaller tree that was damaged and could also fall. So, we aren’t sure at this point if (or when) we will be able to open on Wednesday. The lot may not be accessible and there may be safety issues with people even walking through the lot. We’ll let everyone know by email mid-day what the status is, including whether we can have Grill Night.

 

The NS-SC.org Board has been working to get this done as quickly as possible and we appreciate your patience.

This morning at about 5 am (July 9, 2024), a large tree came down in the pool parking lot. It took down the power lines and the transformer that services the pool. The power lines are down across the lot and the tree is blocking much of the parking lot. There is no power to the pool. We are contacting tree services, but the tree can’t be safely removed until the power company removes the power lines and repairs the pole. They are supposed to do that today but we aren’t sure when  it will be completed. We will keep you posted on the progress. Until this is repaired, the pool is closed and all activities are cancelled for Tuesday July 9th 2024. 

 

Thanks for your patience,

NS-SC.org Board of Directors

GRILL NIGHT WEDNESDAY JULY 10

 

We'll have our weekly Grill Night on Wednesday, July 10, from 5:30 to 7 pm. We do these every week, but we need members' support by volunteering for one or two nights over the summer to help cook or serve. You get to meet some of your neighbors and you eat for free. The signup is:

We wanted to provide you with the latest update on the power outage situation. Our team has been working diligently with Dominion Power to restore the power lines affected by the downed tree in our parking lot. We're making good progress, and Dominion Power's current estimate for completion of the work is around 1:00 PM today. Following the restoration of power, a professional tree removal company will clear the debris from the parking lot and safely remove the other damaged tree to prevent any future incidents. While we are hopeful that we can open the pool this evening, we prioritize your safety and will ensure all necessary steps are taken before we do so. Therefore, it is more likely that the pool will reopen tomorrow once we have fully assessed the situation and the cleanup is complete. We understand the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience and support as we work to resolve this issue. Stay tuned for further updates, and thank you for being a part of our community.


Mark Your Calendars for National Night Out!

It's ONE MONTH AWAY

Tuesday,  August 6, 2024

 

Our swim club again will host the 11th North Springfield National Night Out  event on Tuesday, August 6, 6-8pm. During those hours, all North Springfield residents can join us for FREE! Feel free to bring guests and invite non-member neighbors. The highlights include…

 


NNO is a national event, organized by local law enforcement, to encourage neighborhoods to socialize with neighbors and get to know each other. This has proven to be the best method of crime prevention.

 

To make this event fun and run smoothly, we need some helping hands. Please check the sign-up link below and see how you can be part of this wonderful community event.

National Night Out

No Glass Containers Allowed Anywhere Inside Pool Fence

The County does periodic unannounced inspections and we just passed a Health Inspection. 

 

And, we’ve had a clarification to a section of the County Water Recreation Facilities Ordinance regarding glass containers.

 

The County prohibits glass containers “in the pool area.” The County defines the pool area as the entire area inside the chain link fence, not just the pool deck. So, we’ve updated our rules to say that no glass containers are permitted anywhere inside the pool fencing, including in the picnic area. Please leave glass containers at home. This includes not just glass bottles, but glass drinking glasses and food containers.

 

The risk of broken glass to bare feet is obvious. But, if broken glass got into the pool, we would have to drain the entire pool, allow it to dry, vacuum it, then refill the pool. 

 

So, please follow the rule. Anyone bringing glass into the pool will be required to return it to their car.

 

Thanks!

The NSSC Board of Directors and Pool Staff



RAFT NIGHT SATURDAY 

JUNE  29, 2024

A Great Success! 


Time to inflate those rafts, donuts and other floating stuff!  


The Float Night was a great success last Saturday night. Thanks to Emily and the Social Team for the Ice Cream Floats, and to Kathy and our Guard staff for patrolling the pool. This is one of the most popular things at the pool each year. One parent told me her son had been waiting for float night since last summer. We’ll have a float night again in July and in August.
