Archive for April, 2016

Hi folks,

I just want to remind all members to not delay on renewing. I will be processing all payments and updating the roster April 30, the roster for May 1 will go up that night. If the park doesn’t see your name on the list, you may not be able to swim (well at least outside of the swim area).

Now I am going to make an appeal to you members that sometimes forget to renew in a timely manner, please renew promptly. We have already paid our insurance for the season, and the park dues are due shortly. We need over 150 members to break even or we will have to raise the dues. Last year, we had exactly 150 members and we achieved that only by testing and adding about 30 new members. We did not reach that number until August. Most of the new members required Al or myself to make special trip to the park to test just a few people, that’s time out of schedule. From the start, Al and I wanted to keep the cost of membership low, but over the past few years, renewal rates have been very low. Al and I have tested over 800 people, yet less than 1 in 4 actually return from year to year?

Seriously, if you use Shadowcliffs, make a point to renew promptly, it only takes a few minutes. For those of you that promptly renew, thank you very much, you make it all possible.


Thank you kindly,
Al and John
