Pool Gate System Temporarily Down -- No Access for Unguarded Swim

A circuit board in the gate system was fried during the recent storms.  We are working with our insurance company to get everything processed.  We are pre-ordering what we can to make repairs.  We will send out further information once it becomes available.  

Until other accommodations are approved and appropriate steps taken, the pool will not be open during unguarded hours.  We will send out an announcement when unguarded access resumes. 

Guards will unlock the pool for guarded swim at normal times.


For any issues with the pool or your access to it, send an e-mail to support@briarcliffclub.freshdesk.com.

Adults with unguarded gate code should use it for everything, but only give guarded gate code to kids below 18.

Remember to press # after your 5-digit gate code!


The BCC Pool is now open

The first day for GUARDED swim at the Briarcliff Community Club (BCC) pool is set for Friday, May 27th. At that time, the BCC pool will begin to follow the Hours of Operation listed in the Rules and Regulations (attached) and at our website at https://bccor.org/:

"School Year" schedule:

GUARDED hours are as follows:

Monday thru Thursday: 4:00pm – 9:00pm

Friday: 4:00pm – 11:00pm

Saturday: noon – 11:00pm

Sunday: noon – 9:00pm


Updated Rules and Regulations

Please see the updated BCC Rules and Regulations for the upcoming season, including definitions and rules for Guarded and Unguarded swim. Please make sure all members and guest understand a comply with all rules and regulations.

Please make a note that there are revisions to Paragraphs #4.l, Paragraph #7, and Paragraph #8

Black Algae at the BCC Pool:

During our efforts of getting the BCC pool clean for the summer season, we noticed a small outbreak of black algae, which can be really harmful to our pool liner (and really expensive if the black algae won’t go away). We were able to treat the impacted areas properly, and hopefully it won’t be an issue for the remainder of the season.

TO PREVENT THE THREAT AND SPREAD OF BLACK ALGAE IN OUR POOL, please DO NOT EVER wear the same bathing suit to the lake and then to our pool unless the bathing suit has been washed (in a washing machine!)prior to coming to our pool. That is how black algae is introduced to swimming pools. Please advise your guests of this requirement.


Updated Wireless Internet:

We’ve improved our wireless internet! The information to connect will be posted at the BCC pool.

Contact the BCC:

Please email support@briarcliffclub.freshdesk.com with any questions, comments or concerns. Thanks!


Please do not litter the pool area, pavilion, or parking lot. If you or your children make a mess, please clean it up.


Briarcliff Community Club (BCC) follows the recommended CDC guidelines. If a member or guest is told to quarantine under CDC guidelines, they are not allowed on the BCC premises until their recommended quarantine time frame is completed. Furthermore, if a BCC member or guest exhibits symptoms of the Corona Virus, they are not allowed to use the BCC facilities until they are symptom-free and hopefully, have negative test results.

Please help us keep our members and guests safe. Thank you for your understanding; your cooperation is appreciated.


For your convenience, if you have an unguarded gate code and have signed the waivers, this code will work in both guarded and unguarded hours. 

Remember that it is unsafe to use the pool until after 30 minutes past any thunder or lightning.

Please fill out, sign, and return the new waver forms (as appropriate). The Covid-19 waiver is required for all members.

We need to start keeping a member/guest log for anyone entering the BCC pool. The information we’ll need members/guests to provide include Name, Phone Number and Time In.
 


Private Party and Pavilion Use Update:

Private parties and pavilion use will be allowed during the upcoming 2021 BCC pool season, unless CDC Guidelines and Recommendations are modified to deter the BCC Board’s decision. 


Unguarded swim waivers 

Remember: Every adult family member at your same address must sign a liability waiver to obtain an unguarded swim gate code. Your regular gate code will not work during unguarded swim hours. 

If you didn't fill a liability waiver out last year you will need to fill one out now,
Download and sign the waiver now - the form is available on the website.
Please send a scan or photo(s) of your completed waiver to support@briarcliffclub.freshdesk.com.  Then, put the completed paper copy in a envelope and deposit it in the BCC mailbox by the pool.  Failure to send the electronic copy of your waiver will delay processing by at least a week.


If you forgot your gate code, log into your account, scroll to the bottom of the Home Page, and click My Account.

Make sure the gate is locked when you close it. Pull it to see if it is really locked. Sometimes it takes 3–4 tries to get it to latch.

Please keep our newly-lined pool clean and neat

Algae. Algae in the pool is unsightly, and expensive and difficult to remove. It comes from bathing suits that have been used in the lakes and rivers, and then used in our pool. Please wash your bathing suits in the washing machine before using them in the pool. Tell your guests in advance to do the same.
Bobby pins. Girls and ladies, please do not wear bobby pins to the pool. They rust quickly under water and stain the bottom of the pool. Getting cut by stepping on a rusty piece of metal is bad.
Toys. If you put a toy into the pool, please remove it when you are done playing with it. They get in the way of lap swimmers.
Clean up your mess. If you make any trash while at the pool, dispose of it.
Remember: NO glass containers in the pool area - this includes beer bottles - bring cans instead!


How does an extra $100 sound to you?

Refer a friend who buys a club-owned share and we'll give you $100!!!
EASY MONEY right?
SO SPREAD THE WORD!!!

DOs and DON'Ts please

  • Don't play with the ropes or the rope buoys. They are not toys, and cost over half an O&M to replace when broken. Moving the buoys and hanging or standing on the ropes frays the ropes and causes them to break (one just did).
  • Don't  wear bobby pins into the pool. They rust rapidly and stain the pool bottom. No one wants to step on a rusty piece of wire while in the pool.
  • Do clean up your messes. Remove items you put into the pool. Clean up your table and seating area, Leftover food crumb and spilled sweet drinks bring ANTS!
  • Don't smoke in the pool area or the pavilion.

Thank you for your cooperation.

YOU are responsible for any mishaps if you use the pool when it is unguarded!
