What Happens in the Winter?
Board of Directors Election
First thing we do after the season ends is hold elections for the Applewood Knolls Swim and Tennis Club Board of Directors..
After two great years as AK President, Steve Copher has stepped down. A tremendous thanks to Steve, Mike Zarlengo and everyone who operated the club in 2018. This is not an easy job and the pay is basically pain and suffering. They did an amazing job improving the club operations and the facility.
To carry the club into the next season, we have new board officers. Those lucky folks are listed below:
Our board is made up of up to 12 individuals who have interest and passion for our fun little club. We are always looking for individuals who will be members of the club for a while and want to see it remain the fun place it is today. OR better than it is today. Depends on your point of view!
Being a board member is a very fulfilling opportunity to make a difference in your family's summer fun as well as give back to the community. The time commitment is limited and actually very limited during the summer once the pool gets rolling.
If you are interested in hearing more about how you can contribute to the club as an AK Board member, please contact our new club president, Rick Assmus, to learn more.
Due to lousy weather, rain and coldness we are postponing the End of Summer Rum Party.
Keep an eye on this website and the police blotter to hear when we reschedule.
Sorry if this ruins your plans for the evening. I'm sure there is rum in your house somewhere. You'll survive.
This Saturday morning starting at 10:30am, Stage 3 of the Colorado Classic will race through Denver. The second annual Colorado Classic is a four-stage men and women’s pro bicycle road race in Vail and Denver.
The race route passes Applewood Knolls twice during the loop out to Lookout Mountain. Come by and join a bunch of early birds and set up camp in the parking lot! We will be there with lawn chairs and cow bells around 0930!.
A quick reminder that pool hours get a little complicated over the next couple of weeks.
This is primarily due to the following:

That pretty much sums up my feelings about the month of August. There’s something about August that bursts my summer bubble. I know summer isn’t technically over until September 22nd, but it feels like it ends much sooner than that.
This is Carl.
Carl is sad.
(I named him Carl after my lonely elderly neighbor who yells at the mailman for driving too loud)
Carl was left behind at the pool following the swim team banquet.
Carl wants to go home.
If Carl belongs to you please come and get him. No questions asked. Social Services will not be contacted.
If Carl's family doesn't claim him, he will become property of the swim team. The swim team will feed him cookies and soda. Who knows what could happen next.
So you may have noticed we have upped our recycling game at the pool.
Notice I said "we".
For our part, we now have fancy new recycling bins that look like this.
For your part, you have to follow the recycling rules. If the past is any indication, it is important that we review the things you cannot recycle. These are things that have been found in the recycling bins in the past. Please do not attempt to recycle the following:
If you want to know everything that you can possibly recycle, handy signs are located on the top of each bin. You can also read the very interesting details about this program and what is cool to recycle by clicking here.
