Bad Weather - Call Ahead
Heavy rain and thunderstorms may require us to temporarily close DT Pool for safety. Our policy is to wait 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder, or 45 minutes after the last lightening before re-opening the pool. Call ahead to DT Pool at (703) 998-9761 to determine the operating status. We will also try to post weather announcements on Twitter -- follow us @dtdolphinsva
Dowden Terrace is a member-run pool -- our rates are low because members volunteer their time to help the pool succeed. The Board is looking for members to volunteer for a variety of tasks to keep the pool running smoothly. Please see the attached link Board Members for more detail.
Grills and Kitchen
*The Ktichen and Grills will not be available for the 2020 pool season.
Please remember that the kitchen and grills are there for everyone's use and clean up after each use.
Please wipe up any greasy messes around the grills and remember to check the grease catches below the grills BEFORE you start cooking.
Extra propane tanks are in the white steel cage near the ping pong table. Set used tanks outside the cage.
The Board wanted to share some water safety articles for basic safety tips. These were certainly eye opening for me as contrary to the Hollywood portrayal of a drowning, it is often silent and very little splashing.
DT Dolphin Swim Team
* Please note that the 2020 NVSL League swim season has been cancelled.
(Yes, DT Dolphins remain in Division 1 for 2020!)
Our Dowden Terrace Dolphins Swim Team has a long and proud involvement with the Northern Virginia Swim League (NVSL), joining the league in 1958 in the "South" division. The swim team has always been a strong competitor as well as a neighborhood focal point.
The DT Swim Team is open to Dowden Terrace members only. For more information about the upcoming 2020 season, visit the DT Dolphins Home Page, or contact Swim Team Representative Erin Conaton (email@example.com).
