Pool Opening Guidelines- Please Read

Hi ROSRC Families,

It’s almost summer time…but it is definitely pool time! Our club pool will officially open, as planned, on Friday May 22nd. That said, there are a few stipulations that must be in place to provide all members with a safe and pleasant swimming experience. Please review all of the following guidelines and discuss with your family members prior to your first pool visit. 

  • Key cards will be activated for those members that have paid their March dues. Activation will occur on opening day, 5/22. If you have not yet paid, you may still put payment in the club mailbox or pay via Paypal.
  • Please refrain from coming to the pool if you or a family member have been recently sick.
  • Sanitizing spray will be provided by lifeguards, and they will make a cleaning sweep of the pool area every Rest Break. To accommodate this, the break will be extended to 20 minutes, rather than the usual 15 minute time block. It is advised that you spray down your seating area upon arrival and prior to leaving the pool.
  • The pool hours will remain the same with Swim at Your Own Risk and lifeguard hours continuing  to be the same as in years past.
  • Please respect the table grouping and chair setup, and do not move these furniture pieces. Social distancing must remain in place between non-family/guest  members.
  • No shared pool toys/items will be allowed.
  • There will be no Lost and Found, so try to keep up with your personal items.
  • There will be guests allowed, but Membership Priority will be in place. If the pool reaches capacity (70 swimmers for this summer) then families with guests will be asked to honor the Membership Priority policy.
  • Sign in will be for guests only this year. Member families will not need to sign in upon arrival.
  • There will be no diving boards open this summer,
  • The playground will remain closed until further notice.
  • No parties or pavilion rentals will be allowed for the entirety of the summer.
  • Please be supportive of lifeguards and respectful to others. This is new to all of us, and it’s important that you do your part to make these guidelines work effectively.

*** Special note from Positively Pools:

Member cooperation is imperative during these unusual times. It is expected that members abide by the guidelines on their own, as well as fully cooperate in a respectful and reasonable measure when asked to do so by lifeguard staff. There will be zero tolerance for combative or argumentative members while we are trying to regulate safe pool use. The controlled reduction of spreading COVID-19 and return to the lifestyle we enjoyed prior to lockdown is contingent upon us all doing our part, and cooperating and following rules both governed and logical.
Kind Regards,–

Pool Opening 5/22

Hi ROSRC Families,

I hope this message finds you well. We have some news to share regarding our pool opening. Per the updated state guidelines, we are making plans to open the pool on May 22nd, 2020. There will be some limitations that we request our members strictly follow. That being said, there will be many members that fall into the category of individuals that will need to continue to shelter at home. Please review the following guidelines and determine how your family wants to proceed. We hope that this limited opening allows all members to feel they are able to make an informed choice about the use of our community facility.
Opening Guidelines:

  • May 22 is our new tentative opening date with full staff coverage.
  • No diving boards installed to help reduce any spread.
  • No baby pool to help the littles from crowding and spreading.
  • No parties or pavilion rentals for the season.  
  • Positively Pools will supply sanitizer on the sign in table so the ‘exit’ button can be sanitized. They will also clean and sanitize furniture, periodically.
  • Positively Pools is currently assessing how the patron limits will be calculated. The lifeguards will assist with enforcement. Stay tuned for more information about the pool member limits.

Posted in ROSRC News | Comments Off on June Dues Notice

We are certainly facing challenging times, and we hope that all of our ROSRC families are well. The health and safety of our members is top priority, and while we wish to ensure the enjoyment of our facilities, gathering at the pool is not advisable due to the various restrictions and orders we are under. For this reason, we have opted to delay the opening of our pool.  Since there is no way to predict when we can schedule an “opening day”, for now we must remain flexible and responsive to the situation as it unfolds.  Additionally, in compliance with state guidelines, the May Junior Activities and the opening day Memorial Picnic will be cancelled. We are currently evaluating various options for ways to manage group gatherings, if/when the current guidelines are relaxed.
Though the pool is not currently open, we are excited to announce that the tennis courts are still available for your enjoyment!  While we must ask that you follow the state guidelines for group distancing and gathering, please feel free to make use of the courts with your family.
The upkeep of our club is vital, and we cannot stop or delay even slightly the preparations needed to ensure the pool and staff are ready for swimming next month. It has been recommended that furniture be left stored and covers stay on until we get some better indicators of when public gathering will be allowed.  Repairs, maintenance and water quality are high priority to continue.  Positively Pools will still be visiting, treating, prepping and stocking our pool as well as hiring and training staff for summer services.   
In compliance with the current guidelines, we will be cancelling our group Work Day originally scheduled for April 18th.  You are invited to help beautify our grounds on your own schedule and earn credit this way. Please reach out if you would like to take this opportunity, and we will advise you of the maintenance and landscaping needs. 
A June Dues Notice reminder will be coming soon. Protecting the financial solvency of any small business is key during stressful times. For this reason, the Board has evaluated expenses and made some adjustments to guard our interests.  Changes have been made to our wi-fi, phone, landscaping, and cable accounts to make sure we are getting the best rates and being proactive with our finances. Positively Pools is also being responsive to the current situation, and they are promising to ensure a readiness to serve, but they are also planning to only charge for services that are rendered. 
In these uncertain times, please remember that the River Oak Swim and Racquet Club is a member run facility. Since the Board is comprised of club volunteers, your support is greatly appreciated as we navigate this unchartered territory.

LH – Project Update

ROSRC Members and Families:

We wanted to give you an update on the status of the Larry Hogan Tennis Pavilion Project. We have
raised about $1,600 towards the $2,500 goal to complete all the desired improvements. There have
been several people/families who have pledged to contribute but have not yet sent in money, so if it’s
fallen off your radar, please go ahead and get your donation in ASAP. We need a firm tally of how
much we have in order to prioritize allocation of those dollars (note – do NOT make checks out to
ROSRC as this is separate from club funds):
1. Mailed bank check:
Mary Koerner
222 12 th Street NE, Unit 2005
Atlanta, GA 30309

2. Venmo available (contact Mary Koerner or Vicki Spratlin below)
3. Contact info:
Mary Koerner (678) 613-5332 mwkhere@gmail.com
Karen Bagley (770) 364-5249 kbags56@gmail.com
Vicki Spratlin (770) 490-0321 vspratlin@inspirebrands.com
This past weekend, the work kicked off with pressure washing of the pavilion area as well as rotten
board replacement. Once the temperatures warm up and the rain stops, the woodwork will be
stained and sealed. If you have expertise in outdoor wood staining and/or access to purchase staining
materials at a discounted cost, please let Mary, Karen, or Vicki know. After staining, we will complete
the following based on final available funds:
 Installation of new facia boards on pavilion
 Decorative woodwork added
 New ceiling fans installed
 New decorative lighting installed
 New food-serving table
 Roll-down vinyl side curtains if budget allows
 Landscaping spruce up if budget allows (need volunteers)
 Pavilion roof shingles replaced if budget allows (need volunteers)
Thanks, again, for helping us show this wonderful family how much they are loved.

Hi ROSRC Families,

You are invited to join us for a General Board Meeting on Sunday, October 20th, at 7:00 PM. We will gather in the pavilion. Hope to see you there!

Thank you to our club members that spoke up about an extension of our pool season. Because of our record high temperatures, we have decided to delay our pool closing by one week. The pool will be open from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM, each day through Sunday, October 7th. Please remember that there is no swimming after dark, and swimming alone is not permitted. We ask that you adhere to the firm closing time of 7:00 PM. We hope you enjoy this extra week of pool time fun!

Key Card Update- Action Needed!

Hi All,

Our fabulous Membership Chair, Christie Burton, has worked tirelessly to manually re-activate each family’s key card. She is requesting that each member take a minute to swing by the club and scan their card some time this week. She needs to receive feedback as to whether or not all cards are working successfully. Christie will be at the club this Saturday (9/21) from 2:00-4:00 to personally check off those that need to be activated.

If for some reason your family is unable to fulfill this request to scan your card this week, there may be a delay in the Spring when you try to enter the pool for the first time. 
Please email Christie with any further questions, or if your card does not work when you test it: rosrc.membership@gmail.com

So sorry for the inconvenience, but please do help Christie complete this huge volunteer undertaking!
