The O&M fees for 2021 are $550. PayPal invoices will go out to the primary email address on file for each share this weekend or early next week. Please update your email addresses on the website, if necessary. If you do not receive your invoice by the end of next week, please check your spam folders. If you can not find a copy of the invoice, please contact the BCC board via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be able to pay via PayPal or check. Payments will be due by March 31st. A late fee of $150 applies to all payments received between April 1st and April 30th. Failure to pay before May 1st will result in forfeiture of membership and the corresponding share in BCC.

For any issues with the pool or your access to it, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
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.
The pool is closed for the season
NO GUEST ARE ALLOWED DURING UNGUARDED HOURS. Any minor BCC member must be
accompanied by an adult family member during Unguarded hours. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org  with all questions or concerns.
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 email@example.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.

Not hearing from us about your question? Check your junk mail folder, please
If you send a support request to email@example.com and you do not receive a reply within a week, please check your junk mail folder. Some members have reported that responses from the ticket system are being filtered into their junk or spam folders by their email client. If this happens to you, please whitelist or aprove the support email address email to prevent the filtering in the future. The procedure to do so varies for different email clients. In some clients, simply creating a new contact with the support email address will be sufficient. In others, you might need to explicitly add the support email address to a list. A quick Google search for the term 'whitelist' and the name of your email client should get you pointed in the right direction.

New Gate Lock and Security Cameras Installed and New Pool Entry Process
In order to make our pool safer and to monitor what happens 24/7, a new lock and video cameras have been installed at the pool. Our new coded gate lock will soon be used by all pool members for entry, and will be used for non-guarded swim hours for adults only (start date tbd). Each member (share owner or renter) family has been assigned a unique 5-digit code they will use to unlock the gate and enter the pool. You must enter a # sign after entering your number. You can log into this site with your user name and password, view "My Account" (in the left-hand menu), and record your unique number. Keep it in your cell phone or better yet, memorize it. Instructions for use are forthcoming. Anyone caught sharing their entry code number with non-members may have their pool privileges suspended.
It is important that you check that your number works so you do not get locked out. The gate will click if your passcode worked. You also need to press the button (it is inside a circular protective ring) on the vertical brick wall to exit the pool. We have battery backup if the power fails.
If you have any problems, contact Jim Rome and include your names (especially if you have more than one) and tell me what happened.

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?
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!
