Are you looking for more stuff for your kids to pile up in the back yard? Do you need something to dry you AK towels on? Or (radical thought) do you need some lawn chairs?
We have some gently used lawn chairs for sale! $10 and one of these baby's can be yours. Get them while supplies last!
My grandfather was a bear-hug of a man whose hands told the stories of hard work and hard lessons. He always told me "Picking the right tool for the job is the most important step". I remember him telling me this when I was a 8 walking through his wood shop. And now I'm passing that wisdom on to you.
And for many of you, your job, part time job, or Friday night hobby includes wine! So now we have the right tool for that job!
AK Wine Tumblers are now for sale at the guard shack! They are cool, they are indestructible and you know you want one. I highly suggest you put your name on the bottom. I'm guessing you'll forget it somewhere.
Hurry and get yours while supplies last.
Hello Summer Buddies!
Looking out the window this morning it seems like summer is miles away (it's rainy in case you're reading this in June). But opening day is just around the corner. As always, we will open for the summer on Memorial Day Weekend rain or shine. The pool is full and the heater she is a-runnin. You can see the opening weekend hours here.
To make sure you fully get into the swing of things, we will be holding a Memorial Day BBQ starting at 4pm. Burgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, kids drinks and some adult drinks will be provided by the board. You should bring your own side dishes, because its important to eat healthy and get some fiber. Plus, you'll probably have to feed some random kid who's mom is not paying attention. So be ready for that.
It's going to be a great year and we are excited for everything we have in store! We've made some upgrades to the locker rooms and have even installed a new drinking fountain. (The old one was an embarrassment). Remember if you have any suggestions or ideas as to how we can make our club better, don't hesitate to drop us a note here.
Our club is operated and fueled by the energy of volunteerism. Add your muscle to the mix by helping with the spring clean up effort. Your help in getting the pool ready for the season will make a huge difference.
The 2019 cleanup will take place this Saturday morning (the 27th). Please come by and donate an hour of your time or bring your teenage kids who do no work at your place and make them work at AK! Everything helps.
Clean-up begins at 0900. Donuts and coffee will be provided but probably will go fast.
Join the AK tennis team and enjoy a high-energy competitive program with matches against other local tennis clubs.
Just like swim team, tennis team practices throughout the week in preparation for weekend matches against other tennis programs. Just like swim team, we always win and our coaches are signing autographs at the end of each event. Our program is affiliated with the USTA Junior Tennis Programs. We compete with other local summer club programs and work toward summer tournaments throughout the year.
Both AK members and non-members are eligible to join the tennis team. We have spots open but the deadline to register is April 25th. Contact Rick ASAP!
Both Condé Nast and Sunset Magazine have selected Applewood Knolls as the Best Summer Club in America 5 years running*. A key part of our success is the fun and laid-back atmosphere we have cultivated at our little family hide-a-way. While it's an easy place to enjoy, it's not an easy place to operate. We have a small army of volunteers and board members that keep this place buzzing. One of the most critical roles at AK is our treasurer.
Currently, our books are professionally and meticulously managed by the brainiac Jennifer Jeffrey. Jennifer keeps the bills paid, the guards compensated and the P in P&L (that's both a pool joke and an accounting joke. 3 points for me).
To assist Jennifer in her excellence, we are looking for an existing pool member with some financial management experience and a desire to give back to the club. That experience could include running a fortune 500 company, being an accountant for a small North Denver mob family or even counting the change in your ashtray.
If you're interested, please email us a hair sample, a hi-res photo of your big toe to this address and we will get back to you!
* This is not true. We have never been featured in either magazine. But we did find an old Tiger Beat in the boiler room once. Have a nice day.
With a whole bunch of Red Bull and Skittles, we managed to get everything running.
Returning members should have received an email today regarding registration. If you did not, please drop me a note here. I'll get back to you as soon as I can, but definitely not within 24 hours. Deep breaths.
Waitlisters will get a nice note regarding their situation in the next few days telling them to be patient.
Our revised communications schedule is as follows:
