On Saturday, May 5th, SAMLARC welcomed the warm weather season with the Beach Club Opening Day Celebration! SAMLARC Members and their guests had the opportunity to soak in the sun, nibble on sweets, and play fun games at the Lagoon.
The celebration kicked off with a welcome from the Board of Directors. Guests snacked on Cowabunga Cookies and Cupcakes and enjoyed the Totally Radical Refreshment station. DJ Eric marshalled exciting water games and music while our Jolly Jumps balloon artist whipped up fun creations for guests. Our contract class instructors and local businesses hosted game booths with lots of fun activities, including a summer-themed photo booth and temporary tattoos! AYTE showed off their tennis and pickleball programs, UK Soccer promoted their summer camps, and Heather Jones from Vantage Real Estate hosted a beach toy raffle and a bean bag toss. Finally, to encourage safe swimming habits, Hoag offered an “Eyes Save Lives” Drowning Prevention and Water Safety presentation in the Fiesta Room.
SAMLARC Communications Committee Member and local photographer Tim Manning captured the heart of the celebration with great photos!
To make the most of the Beach Club Lagoon this year, here are some warm-weather tips!
Use sunscreen liberally, and often. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using broad-spectrum, SPF 30+, water resistant sunscreen (and scouting out some shade!)
Embrace your inner fish, and bring your goggles to make your underwater games crystal clear.
Add a little luxury to your swim routine. Bring two beach towels along with you – one to dry off with, and one for your post-swim cat nap.
Stay hydrated! Frozen water bottles and juice boxes help keep your cooler chilly and are a great way to stay hydrated during your pool day.
While the Beach Club Lagoon is currently closed for maintenance, its normal facility hours are from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. The Beach Club office is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
