Guest books are sold only to members and can be used only by the member purchasing that guest book. A member’s name is printed on the guest book and the member must show their swim club ID to purchase and use the Guest Book.  Note that the member is responsible for their guests.  Guest books expire as follows: Books purchased before August 1 are valid the year/season purchased plus the following year/season.  Guest books purchased on or after August 1 are valid the year/season purchased plus the following two (2) years/seasons.

LOUNGE CHAIRS
Does the swim club provide lounge chairs for the members?
The Swim Club does not provide chairs for Members or Guests.  This prevents the ‘saving’ of chairs and ensures that members have the type of chair they want in the location they want.  Most members bring lightweight foldable sand chairs that are easy to carry and store in the trunk of your car. Except for during camp pickup/drop-off times, members may drive into the circle to unload before parking in the lot.
