By now, some of you have probably seen the sign at the pool giving notice of a closure of the pool on Tuesdays beginning June 1, ostensibly for “maintenance.” First, I want you to know that Aquatics made this decision unilaterally without any consultation or input from Friends of Deep Eddy. Such a decision by Aquatics since the creation of Friends of Deep Eddy is unprecedented. Accordingly, I have asked Aquatics to meet with FODE leadership immediately. I am waiting for a response. I hope we can have this issue resolved by the time of our annual meeting next week on May 19. If not, your presence at the annual meeting will be even more critical so we can frame an appropriate response to this issue with your input.
