Getting ready for Summer!

The AquaClimb rock wall at Connecticut Belair Club is tons of fun and the only one in Montgomery County, Maryland.

PC: Charles Gormly

The prep work has begun! If you haven’t driven by the pool lately, you might have missed the fact the the pool has been drained, scrubbed, and partially filled with clean water. Our pool management company — RSV Pools — has done a wonderful job getting the winter gunk out of the pool and moving all the furniture into preliminary positions.

As you can see, the climbing wall is out of its winter box and getting ready for some summer fun as well. Fence work is being done this week and CB once again has a bike rack out front so that members and guests have a place to secure their bikes while they enjoy the pool!

Now it’s time to keep an eye on your mailboxes — both email and snail mail. Soon, you’ll get news and information on our new online membership system — eSoft Planner. The name may not be too snappy, but the new system will help bring CB into the current century! Members soon will be able to register or renew their memberships online with a credit card, as well as place reservations for cabanas and the like. So stay tuned!

Summer officially starts in just 4 WEEKS with S’mores and Bonfires on Friday, May 26*. The pool will open for the season at 3:30 that day!

If you are a home brewer, please bring along a sample of your wares for others to try. Or, if you have a favorite craft beer that you think we should try, then by all means, bring it along.
There will be sausages on the grill, provided by the pool, along with a number of snacks. The suggested donation is $5 (CB doesn’t sell alcohol).
