KGRC August Updates

KGRC August Updates

It is so hard to believe that we are rounding the corner to the end of summer… wrapping up summer vacations, getting kids ready for school and trying to sneak in as many days at the pool as possible. The KGRC Board and staff plans to make these final pools days some of the best yet! 

Thank you all for your understanding as we have had to navigate scheduling staff* with all the changing school and sports schedules. It has forced some pool schedule shifts, but we are able to stay open our planned end of season hours. We are grateful for our dedicated staff this summer and hope you will give them an extra smile or high five in these final weeks. If we encounter additional unplanned schedule changes, they will be posted to RainedOut (text KGRCMEMBERS to 84483)  and Twitter.

Back by Popular Demand

The Second Annual KGRC Cardboard Regatta! On Monday, Labor Day, 9/5 at 4:00pm, the race is on!! Come join the competition or cheer from the shore. Do you have what it takes to be the best boat on the water? Please read the rules on our website and register your vessel by signing up here!

Want to help our young captains? We welcome cardboard donations at the front desk through 8/27; participants can pick up and use those donations for their vessels if needed. We can always use some “lighthouse keepers” (aka- helping hands) the day of!  Please reach out to our social director at [email protected]

But What About the Cotton Candy?! 

Never fear! We have cotton candy, snow cones and many more surprise activities planned throughout the next few weekends. Including the beloved Coin Toss!! Please keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for updates. 

Doggone End of Summer…

KRGC will once again hold our annual Dog Swim after closing, at 6:30pm on Labor Day, Sept. 2. You are welcome to bring your pup to swim some laps. Please make sure your dog plays well with others, is up to date on all required vaccines and is wearing its rabies tag. Do keep an eye on your pup so you can clean up any messes too. For safety, the water will be open to dogs only - no human swimmers. 

Reminder:

The KGRC Annual General Meeting will be held Wednesday, September 21 at 7:00pm. This is for all regular members. Keep an eye out for more on that after Labor Day. 

Thank you all for making it such a great summer! See you at the pool!

*There’s still room for an extra certified lifeguard or two if your family knows someone interested in earning a little money before Labor Day. Please reach out to [email protected]
