Our 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off is Sunday, September 10th!!  It’s the last day of the season, so come on down and offer some sincere sounding “We should definitely get together soon!”s and perhaps even a “Let’s not wait til next year!”  If chili’s not your thing, bring something sweet* and join the fun.
 

Aqua water line work blocking access to parking lot summer 2017

  Access to the pool parking lot is temporarily blocked by construction work at the Baker street entrance.  Pool access is still available by the paths from Medfield Road and from Braeloch.  For maps and directions to the pool from these alternate locations, please see: 
   http://marcpool.org/bridgeculvert-work-to-start-as-early-as-tues-627-alternate-paths-to-pool/

  Constructions crews are digging at the entrance to the pool parking lot on Baker Road.  As of Friday morning 8/25, the construction worker that one of the board members spoke to was hoping that they would be done with the parking lot today but it might bleed into early next week.

  Aqua is replacing the water lines throughout the neighborhoods of Medfield and Kingsbrook.  They deferred work on Baker road scheduled for earlier this summer at our request (which was hard to achieve).  We had requested the work be postponed to avoid this situation during our busiest part of the season (around swim meets).  They are now here to complete this section of the neighborhood.

  Keeping fingers crossed that we can make it through the remainder of the season without utility disruptions that have occurred elsewhere that were caused by these construction efforts.

Pool WAS temporarily Closed due to Phone issues Wed July 5th, 2017

  2:40 PM update:  The pool is now open again!  A temporary line has been dropped until a proper AT&T install can be performed.  So the pool is now officially open.  However the pool will close again at 4 PM to prepare for the 1st swim team HOME meet of the year.  

  Come on out and Cheer on the MARC Sharks Swim team tonight!

The pool’s phone [ (919) 851-8821(seasonal) ] is currently down, causing the pool to be closed.  Wake County pool regulations require the pool have an operating LANDLINE in order to be open.  I know in the world of almost everyone having a mobile phone…. but that is the rules by which we have to operate under.

  The phone service provider has been called and a ticket opened for immediate service.  

We hope the pool closure is of limited duration, but it is something beyond our control at the moment.

 

Why does the pool sometimes close unexpectedly?

  The pool must close under certain circumstances. If there is thunder, the lifeguards must clear the pool until there has been a 30 minute period with no thunder. If there is a “biological incident” in the pool, the pool must be cleared while additional sanitizing chemicals can be added and have had a chance to work. In all cases, the lifeguards will inform swimmers when they may return to the pool.  If the pool must be closed due to mechanical problem,  chemical imbalance, or telecommunication issue, the lifeguards will inform swimmers and we will make every effort to inform the broader membership via email or Remind App message.

Friday Family Fun Night

  Join us tonight (Friday June 30, 2017) for

Moana (PG)

Moana (PG) 1 hr 47 min

  The movie will start at sunset(ish) at the MARC tennis courts. Bring your chairs, flashlights, blankets, and cash for Hut snacks.  We are hoping the weather holds out – we have missed the last 2 weekends due to weather. 

   Fresh popcorn will be available at 50 cents a bag, or 3 for $1. The movie is free and open to all members and guests. Non-members are welcome to join the fun too, so feel free to invite some friends along! Children must be accompanied by an adult.

See you there!

Bridge/Culvert work nearly completed

 Mid-morning today (Friday 6/30) the workmen on site said the road will be open by end of day.  They have quite a crew and a lot of equipment there, so things are moving fast.  Culvert is in, retaining wall is rebuilt.  Mason worker was finishing up with the cap stones.  They are going to put some rip rap on the banks (upstream side).

  They will need to come back on Monday to finish with clean-up.
 
 After the completion of the project, the pool board will review the work and see what beautification Improvements we can do:

  • plant shrubs
  • add bridge edge posts
  • maybe install a Star Trek type transporter 🙂

  We would love to have guardrails installed, but TOC work was replacing in kind, and therefore nothing additional like guardrails were considered.
