Weekend Fun!

Hi Members,

Friday night officially kicks off our Friday Night Cookouts.  Come out and enjoy your friends, neighbors, and good food.

We have an exciting day planned at the club this upcoming Saturday.  If you don't already have plans, come join us.  If you do have plans, change them!

We will welcome Adam and Justin from a band called Stokeswood from 1 PM until 4 PM.  A fantastic band who has won best rock and roll band in Creative Loafing the last two years running.  If you missed our live band event last year, you will not want to miss this.  We are expecting to be very crowded, so please bring a chair to enjoy the show.  For pool safety, we will have three lifeguards on duty.

But the fun does not stop there.  We will also have an adult beverage contest and open grill night following the live band performance.  Details to follow, but start thinking abut your favorite summer drink to enter into this adult's only contest.

We have been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time and hope to see many of you next Saturday, May 30th!

Remember that guests are welcome at $4/person.  We will have a gate monitor checking memberships and strictly enforcing our guest policy.

Membership Directory, WiFi Password, Guest Fees, Recycling, 10 and Over Cards and More!

Hi Members,

Below are some updates and additional information, as we roll into the 2015 swim season...

  • Attached is our 2015 membership directory. Please use it to connect with friends you meet at the pool and/or those who live close to you. If you have changes or updates to your household information, please reply to this email.
  • The WiFi password at the pool is: @dultSw1m (capital S and 1 for the i).
  • We have a new guest fee box located on your left, as you enter the pool. Please use the envelopes next to the box to submit your cash or check. Or you can pay online via PayPal on our Home Page. Guest are $4/person. Click here to read our Guest Policy.
  • There will not be a sign-in sheet this year. Instead, we will be hiring responsible children 10 and over to assist us with random membership and guest fee payment checks. If your child is interested in earning some money or maybe just free ice cream, please have them call our Membership Coordinator, Leslie Freymann at 770-713-0350. She will conduct interviews and help coach/mentor our HHSTC children as they learn communication skills, finances, work ethics, etc. 
  • We've bought 4 new recycling cans to help ensure we recycle as much as possible this summer. Chamblee can recycle paper, cardboard, aluminium, plastic and glass. To help with our non-recyclable trash, we've contracted with Chamblee's 1-800-Got-Junk, so you'll be seeing their crew pickup our trash twice/week. 
  • Reminder: NO GLASS ALLOWED AT THE POOL. Please switch to canned beer and/or boxed wine for the summer. Thanks! 
  • Click here to access the 10 and Over form. Please have your child contact (or find at the pool) our President, Ryan Tracy (404-642-3408) or Vice-President, Leslie Freymann (770-713-0350) to receive their new 2015 membership card.
  • If you haven't already noticed...we LOVE parties! But, in order to protect the safety and satisfaction of all of our member, we have a new party policy. If you are planning a gathering of more than just a few guests, please read it. This policy and the associated fees for violating it will be strictly enforced. 
  • Click here to access the Swim at Your Own Risk form.
  • Music at the pool streams through family friendly Pandora stations. Lifeguards and volunteer Board members can change the station. If you have a station or volume request, please let them know. 
  • Our pool number is 678-609-8522. If someone calls you from the pool, the number will show as (470) 268-5329 in the caller ID. Either number works. If you are at the pool and hear the phone ring, please answer it. Most likely, it's a parent looking to find their child or a member calling to see if we are on a thunder break. 
  • Upcoming Social Events:
    • Memorial Day cookout from 12:30 - 2 pm. $5 for a plate (hamburger/hotdog and chips and drink). 
    • Tuesday, May 26th - Home Swim Meet. Pool closes at 3pm. Come cheer on our Hammerheads and buy dinner at the concession stand - it's gonna be great! 
    • Friday, May 29th - Friday night cookout
    • Saturday, May 30th - LIVE band afternoon, Best Adult Drink Contest and Open Grill Night
    • Tuesday, June 2nd - Home Swim Meet. Pool closes at 3pm
  • Finally, we consider ourselves a laid back club...but we prioritize safety and it never hurts to remind our members that we have lots of rules. Click here to read them.
We hope you are looking forward to our opening weekend and the summer ahead as much as we are! Click here to view our pool hours. 

See you soon!
