Lodge 1108 Outdoor Pool is OPEN for both lap and 'quadrant' activity - 7 days a week!
POOL ACTIVITY is by RESERVATION ONLY!
The House Committee and other Lodge volunteers have worked diligently to open our "jewel." There are several parameters that need be met while enjoying the pool. All requirements are in place to ensure the safety of our members and their families, and the most enjoyable use of the pool as is possible during these safety restrictions.
The Pool Monitor is NOT a lifeguard. A Pool Monitor is being implemented to provide a safe swimming environment during the COVID health emergency. A monitor needs to be trained by the House Committee - it takes about 10 minutes and can be completed on the day of your first swim - just contact Jen O'Mara (Chair) to schedule at Jen@jeomara.com.
The Pool Monitor checks swimmers in to the pool area, reviews safety information, asks and reviews health questions, and receives the swimmers signed Protocol Form. For a description of Monitor duties CLICK HERE. A Pool Monitor can swim once duties are completed. Please consider being the Monitor any time you and your family want to swim.
