Upcoming Events & More Dolphin News!

We are more than halfway through the pool season, the swim and dive teams are nearing the end of their season and the lazy days of summer are in full swing! This is what summers are made of. We hope everyone is enjoying the pool this summer - we especially enjoy seeing some of you “working from home” poolside! Here are a few things to keep in mind for the next few weeks... 

New Pool Manager

Chris Van Order, a long-time member of the KGRC community and staff member since last summer, will be taking over the role of Pool Manager. Any questions about the facilities or lifeguard staff should be directed to him. Just keep in mind, sometimes he’s at the pool to cheer on his kids in swim and dive too!

Social Events

Thank you all for making the return of our Annual 4th of July celebration a fabulous, fun event!! (Thank you to our helpers too.) The social fun continues at KGRC so keep your eyes on the website calendar. Here are a few dates for your calendars:

  • July 18 - Float Night - 7-9pm -- Bring a float and laze around the pool Sunday evening. (No excessively large floats please.)
  • Aug. 21 - Adult Night - Always a great time to relax and enjoy each other. Line up those sitters!

And… 

Tomorrow evening, July 15, at 6pm, the Dive Team is hosting an Intrasquad Meet in the diving well. While divers will be performing dives they have been practicing all summer, and judges will score them, the pool will remain open. Plan to come, watch, and cheer for our amazing dive team!

Our swim and dive teams are wrapping up their winning seasons soon! Keep up the great work Dolphins! A few team events to be aware of:

  • July 17 - Swim/Dive Teen Night - Swim and Dive team members age 13+ are welcome to join for fun music, dinner, and a later closing time. Pool closes at 7pm. 
  • July 18 - Swim Intrasquad Meet - Pool will open at 1pm following the final home meet of the season! All Mini Dolphins are encouraged to join for the traditional lollipop race, to showcase all that they've learned this season. 
  • July 25 - Swim & Dive Team Banquet - Pool closes at 4pm so our teams can celebrate their seasons! 

Remember:  ALL pool events and closings are listed on the website HERE. And you can view and subscribe to our calendars HERE.

We also “tweet” information on pool events and weather-related closings. Follow us HERE!

Membership Full

As you know, KGRC welcomes new August members at the end of each season. We are completely full for the 2021 swim season. If you have friends who wish to join our pool community, please have them join the waitlist for 2022 found HERE.

Your Pool Too

The Board of Directors appreciates the feedback and suggestions from members. This is exactly how we are able to make changes to ensure KGRC is a fun place to be for all. With our new “business model” of being self-managed, we also welcome more help in specific areas. Each board member has a specific area of responsibility and can often use assistance with tasks. Are you able to help volunteer and join a committee? Maybe you love parties and would like to help on the Social Committee… or have a love of numbers and want to assist in Finances… or a human resources background and can help the HR Committee? These are some examples, but there is a real need for assistance. Please reach out to me if you can lend a few hours (off season too!).

See you at the pool!
