The LRCSC is looking into securing a flag or sign (perhaps green for open and red for closed in the event of inclement weather, etc.) that will be placed next to the LRCSC sign in the parking lot and a smaller one next to the gate. This would keep us from unloading an SUV full of young occupants and their pool necessities and walking all the way to the pool, only to discover that the gates are locked.
If you have ideas or the expertise to provide such a flag or sign, please contact one if the Board members by email so we can discuss it at one of our meetings in time to have them up for our Memorial Day 2013 opening.

The LRCSC has responded to the voice of its members and invited The Lancers Swim Team to a dual board meeting to negotiate a win/win contract for the upcoming season.
We have discovered through this experience, as unsettling as it has been for all concerned, that there is an excellent opportunity to show our children what good sportsmanship looks like and what can be done when communication and compromise occur.
Many of our concerns have been typical of hosting pools - use of the lanes during common use time, delayed opening on days of swim meets, etc. There have been several issues that the swim team has resolved this season for which we are very appreciative. We are hoping to move forward from this point and work together to negotiate a contract that meets both the needs of the Swim Team and Swim Club.
The growth of the team has less to do with the number of swimmers than with the demands on pool facilities to accommodate them. Stephanie Schaefer and Stan Bonta, both club and team members, have been instrumental in their efforts to bring us together. We are confident it can be amicably resolved.
We have learned the value of constant communication and have taken steps to involve the general membership more directly. You will see agendas and minutes of each meeting posted online, for starters. In every crisis, there is an opportunity to learn and grow. We have learned alot and will do all we can to make this work for everyone.
Thank you for your emails and phone calls. We are looking forward to moving on in partnership with the Swim Team.
