Turn in your IRC membership by 5/17 to get your free guest pass

John playingWe had a BLAST Friday night! Thank you to everyone who contributed to Sneak Peek. We are especially grateful to Georgetown Aquatics for getting the pool open and ready before any other pool!

Ping PongWe hope to see you at Open House this Saturday and Sunday from Noon-5pm. Everyone who turns in their paid memberships by 5pm on Sunday gets a FREE guest pass ($25 value)! You can pick up your free guest pass at Open House if you have already sent in your membership.

Sneak Peek poolWe are not using pool passes this year. The Lifeguards will be spot-checking by verifying information on your membership application. This is a greener practice and less hassle for you to have to keep track of your pool passes.

Sneak Peek

Yes! You can swim tonight! Bring your paid membership and extra food :)

The pool is officially open for business at our Sneak Peek event tonight from 6-8pm.
If you haven’t signed up to contribute to the potluck, there are still openings

While there will be membership forms available, it’s a better idea to bring your completed form with your check so you won’t have to take time out of the fun tonight to fill out your form. Remember all paid memberships through tonight will be entered to win prizes. Please give your name at the front desk to be entered in the drawing.

See you soon!

Inverness Recreation Club is the place to be seen in 2015

Paul Lemar, President
During the recent snowstorm, the IRC board was thinking about summer! We’ve been working hard to prepare the pool and tennis facilities for opening, plan our social calendar, streamline our NEW website (thank you to our web designer, Bess Siegal!) and strengthen our membership. We think you’ll agree, there is an activity at IRC for everyone!

You may notice that we had to increase in our dues this year. This is due to the raise in minimum wage which affects our lifeguard costs. The swim season is also longer this summer, which is enjoyable but more expensive. Our rates are still at or below our nearby pools, and we don’t require a bond to maintain membership like they do. Membership dues will help pay for our mandatory safety fencing around the deck entrance as well as a multi-year plan to replace our lounges and chairs. We will strive to keep next season’s dues fixed.

This summer we have planned a full slate of social gatherings, including adult socials and food trucks on Friday nights, raft nights, and other events like our famous 4th of July celebration and Crab Feast. For those that enjoy some morning swimming solitude, we will have early bird swim on the calendar. The Nessies, our mighty swim team, will be ready to take on our neighboring pools and defend their division title from last season. Our NEW Georgetown Prep Tennis classes will be starting soon and registration is open for our popular tennis/swim summer camp as well. If you would like to get involved in any of these activities, let us know. We are always looking for folks to help.
