School Year Closes… Cabana Opens!

  • Kick off the end of school year with a splash!
  • Reminder that the cabana will be open to all members this Thursday at 1:00 PM.

Slight Change to Regular Season Hours

  • In order to partially counter the increasing utility rates and the county’s minimum wage increases, the Cabana Board has identified an opportunity to reduce expenses by reducing the number of hours the cabana is open during the season.  Based on historical attendance, MondayTuesday, and Thursday evenings have typically low to no members utilizing the cabana.  Therefore, the Cabana Board has decided to target the last hour of those days and reduce the operating staff by half, or close the cabana altogether if members are not making use of the club.
  • By reducing the staff by half 3 times per week over a 15 week period, we can save approximately $1,170 during the season.  For any days we can close an hour early i.e. 7:00 PM instead of 8:00 PM, we would double the savings per day.
  • During the ‘half-staff last hour’ of Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, the Dive Pool would remain open and so would a fraction of the Lap Pool (the guards would rope off a section) as long as members are present.
    • Previous Season Hours:  Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 1:00 – 8:00 PM
    • New Season Hours:  Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 1:00 – 7:00 PM
      • Reduced staff and pool access,                   7:00 – 8:00 PM

Almaden Cabana Open Board Positions

Season Opening

  • The club officially opened last Saturday and it was fully enjoyed by the membership throughout the long Memorial Day weekend!  All operations and services have been ramped up.
  • There was a slight delay in opening up the lap pool but once it was ready, it and all other pools were fully functional!
  • We heard you:  the kiddy pool heater has been confirmed to not be functional.  In the interim, we are investigating “solar” pool cover options that help build and maintain heat.
  • ·Over the winter, the board enabled cable internet service in order to improve access to tools and systems the guards need for pool operations and management.  With a stable network came additional bandwidth the general membership can now make use of.  The WiFi SSID is ACC and this year’s password is Dolphins2017.  Please refrain from sharing this information with non-members in order to prevent network congestion.

End of School Year Pool Hours

  • As schools wrap up and several school year-end celebrations are upon us, access to the cabana depends on kids/families and guards’ availabilities.
  • Similar to previous years, following is this year’s cabana hours through Sunday, June 11.

Closed Monday – Wednesday, June 5 – 7
Open Tue-Sat, June 8 – 10                                           1:00 PM – 9:00 PM
