Be sure that the gate is fully latched when you leave the pool! Please push it shut as you leave, and pull it shut when you enter. You will hear a "click" when the lock engages.


The pool is closed for the season


New Gate Lock and Security Cameras Installed and New Pool Entry Process

In order to make our pool safer and to monitor what happens 24/7, a new lock and video cameras have been installed at the pool. Our new coded gate lock will soon be used by all pool members for entry, and will be used for non-guarded swim hours for adults only (start date tbd). Each member (share owner or renter) family has been assigned a unique 5-digit code they will use to unlock the gate and enter the pool. You must enter a # sign after entering your number. You can log into this site with your user name and password, view "My Account" (in the left-hand menu), and record your unique number. Keep it in your cell phone or better yet, memorize it. Instructions for use are forthcoming.  Anyone caught sharing their entry code number with non-members may have their pool privileges suspended.

It is important that you check that your number works so you do not get locked out. The gate will click if your passcode worked. You also need to press the button (it is inside a circular protective ring) on the vertical brick wall to exit the pool. We have battery backup if the power fails.

If you have any problems, contact Jim Rome and include your names (especially if you have more than one) and tell me what happened.

YOU are responsible for any mishaps if you use the pool when it is unguarded!


Want to Have Your Own Party at the Pool? - Check the Rules First

As a member, you can reserve the Pavilion for a party. It's a great way to have a get-together without messing up your house this summer!

          If your group wants to swim, swim parties during regular pool hours are limited
                                 to 10 non-members swimmers/guests!
 

If you want to have a larger swim party with more than 10 non-member swimmers/guests, you must have a Private Party from 8 PM - 10/11 PM.  A private party reservation closes the pool to regular BCC members for the duration of your party time. The fee for a private party is $50, and party hosts pay for lifeguards working during their own party. Lifeguards are required for ALL swim parties. Private parties are limited to a group of 50 people.

Non-swimming parties at the pavilion during regular pool hours are limited to a group of 50 people.

The BCC shareowner named on the share certificate MUST be present as host for any party they request.

Check the calendar below for available dates, and to arrange a time, please contact Ann Martin via email at ann.martin@live.com

Please keep our newly-lined pool clean and neat

Algae. Algae in the pool is unsightly, and expensive and difficult to remove. It comes from bathing suits that have been used in the lakes and rivers, and then used in our pool. Please wash your bathing suits in the washing machine before using them in the pool. Tell your guests in advance to do the same.
Bobby pins. Girls and ladies, please do not wear bobby pins to the pool. They rust quickly under water and stain the bottom of the pool. Getting cut by stepping on a rusty piece of metal is bad.
Toys. If you put a toy into the pool, please remove it when you are done playing with it. They get in the way of lap swimmers.
Clean up your mess. If you make any trash while at the pool, dispose of it. Remember: no glass containers in the pool area.
