    It seems like you have done a good job of thinking this out. Thanks. Also, a huge thankyou for not allowing people to hold places in line. That should allow us to know if we are in the 50 that get to go in. Too often it happens that you think you are in the allowed number only to have people jump into the line who did not stand there. So whether swimming or not you are counted, correct?

    • Sydney Ritz on June 17, 2020 at 8:47 am

      Yes, that is correct.

    Will you be offering swim lessons?

    If you need to use the restroom from the adult pool can you re enter?

    Why cannot the restroom be open for all the members who play sports (mini golf, tennis, pickleball, basketball, 4 square, and the pit game) to use the bathroom and wash your hands by rec station. When games are finished it would be great to stay safe and wash hands. When we order food we really want clean hands to eat as well. Please reconsider.

    If you have a 12 year old that can swim can you wait outside the gate while she swims? This way someone who wants to swim can get in.

    I would like to make a suggestion. Instead of standing in line with small children for an hour or longer depending on how long the line is can you have sign up sheets? No parent wants to stand in line with small children in high temp weather. Also this could be a safety hazard for due to golf carts entering and leaving.

      Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll pass that on to our Recreation Department who will be responsible for implementing procedures. They can also be reached at https://sandypines.com/recreation/

    And where does the line form for the adult pool?

  7. Caroline Lepard on June 22, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    . It’s not Sandy Pines fault that these are the rules! I understand you are following the guidelines given to you. But the science is that COVID 19 dies in sunlight and 80 degree and up temperatures! So long To the fun at Sandy Pines this summer. Who wants to wait in line with the little ones? Not me. It’s just sad.

  8. Rachael on June 22, 2020 at 11:53 pm

    Will these rules change at all this summer?

    • Sydney Ritz on June 23, 2020 at 12:21 pm

      As the governor continues to make changes in rules regarding COVID-19, we will first assess the new rules, and then take our own safety precautions for Sandy Pines into consideration, in addition to what the governor allows. When we have an update on the rules, we will be sure to post it.

    Is it possible to raise the limit at the adult pool to 30? 20 people seems low. There were a lot of adults arguing this weekend over how low everyone was in the pool. There was a cone at the gate stating only 20 occupants. But all the older women, who are there all the time, kept walking in and laughing about, they don’t care how many people are in the pool, they are staying, no matter what. Every time I’ve come to the pool for the last 6 weeks, there is always over 20 but less than 30. So, just hoping it could be changed to 30.

    • Sydney Ritz on August 24, 2020 at 9:06 am

      Thanks for your feedback Randy. We will pass your suggestion about raising the limit to 30 people in the adult pool along to our Recreation Director.
