Swimming Pool Memberships Available
It's getting closer! The swimming pool and spa on the south side of the LPN conference center is complete, the fence is up, landscaping is underway, furniture has arrived. The facility is expected to be open at least by Memorial Day weekend, and perhaps a few days sooner. People who own weeks in the Clover Ridge Interval Owners Association, have traded weeks to stay at the resort, or are staying in the LPN Inn and Suite, will have free access to the pool.
All other pool users must purchase an annual membership or pay a daily fee. For LPA members, a 2015 pool membership for a single is $75 and for a family is $130. For the general public, a single membership is $85 and a family membership is $145. Annual members will receive silicon wristbands to wear when using the pool. Pool memberships can be purchased online here, or membership forms can be printed and mailed or dropped off with payment at the LPN front desk. The daily rate is $3 per person. Those paying the daily rate will have their hand stamped to show they have paid.
Pool hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Private pool parties can be scheduled in two-hour increments at a cost of $150. The LPN staff will manage the pool from the check-in window near the pool, and snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.
