    News for Club Members

    Welcome New and Returning Members

           Always a Fun-Filled Summer at the Pool

    2018 Opening Day: Hurricane Creek Pool opens on Sunday, May 20. The last day of the pool season is Sunday, September 23. We’ll keep the pumps running and everything in order until September 30 for private parties and special events.

    New and Returning Club Members: Memberships for the 2019 pool season are available now, either online or by mail. We hope you’ll join the next summer’s fun. Please apply before memberships are sold out for the summer.

    Paint Paint Paint! As we do each spring, the entire pool and deck will be scrubbed and prepared for the summer season. You and your friends will appreciate the effort. Important maintenance tasks take place daily with an eye on providing members and their guests with a safe and entertaining summer season.

    Family Midnight Swims: These special nights are a blast and we’ve added several more dates for the 2019 pool season. Please refer to the club’s website calendars for dates, and invite a few friends along to enjoy these special evenings.

    Free Babies! We have good news for member families. We are continuing the club’s no-fee policy to include member children up to 24 months of age (as of May 1). Children must be listed on the family’s membership form. This “free baby” policy does not apply to guests.

    Karate News: Many people think karate is all about fighting, but it’s actually about physical fitness and discipline. Forget the movies. Conscientious martial artists are trained to recognize and avoid danger while possessing the strength and confidence to counter an opponent when necessary. They don’t look for trouble but they are prepared if trouble should come their way.

    HCRA’s karate fitness training promises strength, discipline and common sense. These fun sessions offer a mix of fitness training in a unique setting. Stop by to observe any class to see our young martial artists in action and learn more about HCRA’s Five Animal Kenpo martial arts program. These co-ed one-hour classes begin promptly at 5:00 pm every Monday and Wednesday. To avoid distracting the classes, no stragglers, please.

    HCRA has added an exciting new karate class designed specifically for girls ages 8 to 80. Participants will benefit from learning a blended set of skills including strength development, confidence building,  awareness of risks, fast thinking and basic defense strategies.

    One-hour classes are held in the Hurricane Creek Clubhouse every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 pm. Monthly tuition is just $40 per person. Being prepared for the unexpected is never a bad idea.

    Classes are led by Black Belt Sharon McDarmont. Enjoy this valuable program with your mom, daughter, sister or female friend.

    2019 Swim Lesson Update: HCRA’s swim lesson appointments fill up fast, so please plan ahead and reserve dates and times that fit your family’s needs. Over the years we’ve had a huge amount of participation and great success in helping our youngest members develop confidence and basic water skills. Thanks to all the parents who have taken this important step in youth water safety.

    Clubhouse Rentals: Clubhouse rentals are available after October 1, 2018. Please book your events early. Click here for an online reservation form. Rentals are not normally available during the pool season because the clubhouse serves as the concession stand from mid-May until late-September.

    Dollar Guest Days: Dollar Guest Days are back by popular demand. We’ve sprinkled the pool calendars with a number of days when you can treat your friends to a great summer day for just one dollar per person. Any person entering the fenced pool area must pay a guest fee regardless of attire. This helps cover insurance and other operating costs.

    Friday Family Movie Nights: Join your neighbors and friends for free family movie nights at the Hurricane Creek Clubhouse during the fall and winter months. Everyone is invited; no need to be a pool member.

    Check out HCRA’s online activity calendars for upcoming movie nights.The movies start promptly at 7:00 pm. Free popcorn, sodas and bottled water. Family Movie Nights are scheduled only during the pool’s “closed season,” which runs from October through April.

    Square Dancing in the Clubhouse: Looking for an activity that is packed with fun and great friendships? Come visit the Star Twirlers Square Dance Club any Saturday evening at 6:30. Lessons are available and the dancers are phenomenal.
