2021 June 04 Update

Happy Friday Penguin Families!

What an opening week! It was wonderful to see so many of you back in the water, both new and returning faces, over what has been a gorgeous week. Starting with this email, I plan on sending weekly newsletters on Friday evenings that will summarize the incoming weeks to keep membership informed. That said, we only have one more week of preseason left, and I have lots of announcements and updates for the season. Buckle up!


1) Save The Date: PC Adult Trivia Night, June 19 @ 7 PM

Parkcrest’s annual Trivia Night fundraiser is making its return! Come join in for a night of unusual facts, drinks, and socialization. All are welcome, member or non-member. Compete as a team of 8 or join as free agents for the title of Most Knowledgeable Penguin. Cost is $25 per individual, sign up at the front desk! Clues will be made available for purchase by cash or check the night of the event. Beer, lemonade, and water will be provided. Picnic baskets full of snacks for the evening will be available for $50, but feel free to bring in additional drinks for your table. Please contact Chandra [email protected] if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the event!


2) Lap Swim Reservations

As promised, we are bringing back lap swim reservations from last year as per popular demand. Reservations can be made via this link: https://calendly.com/parkcrestpool. This link will also be made available on the website. There is currently a test event open for members to familiarize themselves with the system, but the reservations can be booked starting on Friday, June 11. Reservations can be made up to one week in advance. Reservations are not required to lap swim, but lane priority will be given to members who have reserved.

Reservations will be effective starting June 14 through August 13 on weekdays at the following times:

6:00 AM – 7:00 AM Early Bird Swim

12:45 PM – 1:30 PM Noon Adult Swim

4:00 PM – 6:30 PM Open Swim

Reservations are also available for Lap Lane Private Lessons, which may occur between 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM on weekdays.


3) Lesson Placement and All-Activity Sign Ups

A reminder that Swim Lesson Placement Testing will be taking place June 5, from 3 to 5 PM. Please talk to the guard at the front desk for a spot in line. All Activity Signup will be on June 6 from 12 to 1 PM in the Tennis Courts. Online registration will open at 2 PM the same day, and close on Monday, 11:59 PM.


4) Tennis Lessons Update

We are still in the process finalizing our tennis instructor for the season. We apologize for the delay as we do our best to bring tennis lessons back to Parkcrest. As of now, we still plan on having lessons and the schedule available in time for the June 6 activity signup. Further updates will be sent out as soon as the situation is resolved on our end. Thank you for your patience.


5) Guest Policy Reminder

A reminder that guest passes are available for purchase at the front desk for $5 per visit per individual. Every guest must fill out a waiver at the front desk before entering the pool. With the introduction of physical guest passes this year, guests still must be accompanied by a sponsoring Parkcrest member to be allowed entry.


6) Regular Season Hours and Upcoming Events

Regular season hours will begin on Friday, June 12. The 2021 regular season schedule may be found on Parkcrest’s website. Some events to put on your calendar (details to come!):

June 15: Family Float Night @ 7 PM

June 17: Tween Night @ 7 PM

Thank you all for a fantastic first week, and let’s keep up this momentum for the rest of the season!


Go Penguins!
