With Spring just around the corner, we are moving forward getting the pool ready for the season. The pool cover will come off mid-April, chemicals have been ordered and we are working on some improvements to the facility. This year only, we will open one week earlier than normal since Memorial weekend falls a little later.

This year we welcome back Mary Jo Boehner as our pool manager. Many of you know Mary Jo from when she was our pool manager for many years before retiring. For new members, be sure and stop and introduce yourself. You will truly enjoy her.

Active members will need to pay their dues by May 1. Dues will remain the same as last year. We will again offer a SINGLE MEMBERSHIP for $250. This is for a one person household and you will NOT be issued any other passes other than for yourself. You are required to own a share of stock. You may still have guests but they will need to pay the $5 guest fee.  There is a limit of 20 of these single membership and is based on first come, first serve.

Family memberships are $450 with a minimum of 4 passes.  Senior memberships are for those age 60 and above and will only be issued a maximum of 4 guests passes. If seniors have other family members living with them, they will need to pay the family membership rate.

Be sure to sign up for our text messaging service.  You must sign up to be added but these texts will keep you informed of closings, swim meets, and fun activities you won't want to miss.  To sign up, visit:  https://www.remind.com/join/wildwoodp. And if you are not getting emails, please let us know and we will make sure you are added.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we look forward to seeing you all at the pool!

We are reaching out to all members to see who is interested in volunteering to help at the pool and get involved. Board members work very hard all year getting the pool ready for members, putting on activities and much more behind the scene. But we CANNOT do it all.   

So I am reaching out to see if our members have skills, talents and resources to help us make these improvements. Think about these things and see if you have the ability to:

* Volunteer time for Activities
* Build (Construction)
* Painting
* Floor Work
* Raise Funds
* Electrical 
* AC Experience (our guard shack could use some much needed AC)
* Water Line Repair
* Paving
* Landscaping
* The list could go on and on.

I have had members ask for us to supply Daily Guest Passes for free.  If you volunteer and provide much needed services, we are willing to reward you with some daily guest passes.  

As an incentive to increase participation in our clean-up days to get the pool ready to open, we are offering 5 free guest passes (a $25 value) to members that show up for one or both of our work days (you will receive 5 free guests passes for each day worked). We have powerful pressure washers with cords strung across the deck so for the safety of all, please leave young children at home.

The workdays are scheduled for:
Saturday, May 1 from 8:00 am until noon
Saturday, May 8 from 8:00 am until noon
Keep informed about pool closings, special events and more. Sign up to receive text messages. Click on the link below to add your mobile number.

Welcome to the 2021 Summer Season!

I am excited to return this year as pool manager. We have a lot of exciting events planned and even ways to get the lifeguards more involved with the members. My goal this summer to make sure our members feel as comfortable and as safe as possible. If you have any concerns, please reach out to me.

You can reach me at: wildwoodpoolmanager@gmail.com.

Everyone entering the pool must be a member and have their pass with them while they are at the pool. You are allowed to bring a guest for $5 per guest which includes access to our pool and amenities for the day. THE GUEST(S) MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE PAYING MEMBER(S) WHILE PRESENT.

If you want to reserve a date for a pool party, email your preferred date, time and number of party guests to:

The pool manager will get back with you to let you know if that date is available and get you on the calendar.

Welcome to the 2021 season! . 
To guarantee your place at the pool it will be necessary for active members (those who were members last year) to have your dues paid on or before May 1, 2021. After that date, membership will be opened to individuals on the waiting list. 
Dues for 2021 are as follows:
* Family Membership: $450 (with a minimum of 4 passes)
* Senior Membership: $350 (60+) (2 passes with 2 guest passes)
* Single Membership: $250 (no additional passes) Only 20 available!
* WARA Stock: $300 per share
* Permanent Guest Pass: $150
* Stock Transfer Fee: $50

There are two ways to pay your membership:
1) Go to www.wildwoodpoolva.com and click on the membership tab where you will be guided to pay via PayPal. This is the fastest and most convenient way to pay.
2) Or you can send a check made payable to WARA to:
   Keith Weisenstein
     1119 Random Way
     Forest, VA 24551
     For questions, please email:  wildwoodmembership@gmail.com
The annual membership dues cover all eligible family members. A "family" is defined as those individuals related by blood, marriage, or through legal guardianship and living in the same house. As in the past, a family membership will include a minimum of four passes. Senior stock members will receive a MAXIMUM of 4 passes. If there are more than 4 family members living in the household, the family stock membership must be paid.
All dues MUST be paid in full prior to using any of the amenities. Membership packets containing pool badges & pool rules will be available for pick-up at the pool during opening weekend or anytime after that.  Packets will not be mailed. 
Q. How will the 2021 waiting list work?
A. Returning 2020 stock members can join anytime before May 1, 2021. After that date, families on the waiting list will be offered memberships until we reach capacity. There are over 75 families on the waiting list and growing every day. Historically, 25 to 35 families leave each year for various reasons, so there is a chance that some people on the waiting list may not get in this year.

Q. I own stock and haven't been a member for a few years. I can join anytime right?
A. Unfortunately, no. Your stock membership is considered inactive and you must request to be placed on the waiting list. Note that inactive stock members are given priority over prospective new members. According to the by-laws, priority among inactive stock members is based on the period of time for which the member has been waiting to become active, so the member with the most seniority on the waiting list has first preference. After all of the inactive stock members have been offered a membership, we will welcome new members until capacity is reached. At that time, membership will be closed to everyone, including stockholders. 

Q. How do I become a stock member?
A. There are two ways: 1) you can purchase stock directly from WARA or 2) you can purchase stock from a WARA stockholder. If you buy stock from WARA, there is a one-time fee of $300, which can be split over two years. If you purchase stock from a stockholder, it is considered a private transfer and WARA does not take part in the negotiations. Once the transfer is made, the old stock certificate should be sent to Keith and he will issue a new stock certificate in the buyer's name(s). There is a $50 transfer fee for this service.
Important note:
The purchaser in a private transaction assumes the stockholder status of the seller, i.e. if the seller was active in 2020, then the purchaser steps into his shoes in 2021 and bypasses the waiting list. There is still a $50 stock transfer fee.

Hello Wildwood Family and Friends!
THE 2021 SUMMER SWIM SEASON IS HAPPENING! We would love to have you be part of the Wildwood Stingrays Swim Team! Not only do we swim competitively as part of the Lynchburg Aquatic League (LAL), we also have lots of FUN! Our more relaxed environment fosters friendship among the swimmers and the families. No previous swim experience required. Our coaching staff loves to teach kids to swim!
Our swimmers range in age from 5-18 years old. The season consists of six dual meets, on Monday nights, ending the season with our "B" & "A" championship meets. While we are a competitive team, we achieve success in a relaxed, fun-spirited and supportive atmosphere.
We offer a team called the “Little Rays” for our new or younger swimmers (typically ages five and under). This is a wonderful opportunity for younger children who might not be ready for the swim team but would like to work on their stroke technique and become more proficient in the water. 
Our regular swim team practices daily Monday through Friday, and we hope to again offer additional stroke clinics throughout the summer (morning and evening times are available most days).
We are excited to announce our new head coach Matthew Davidson, a long-time Wildwood Swimteam member. Matthew brings a wealth of swimming experience and has been a part of the Lynchburg Aquatic League for many years.

We will be holding swim team sign-ups April 29th, 2021 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Sweet Frog in Forest. If you have been a part of our team in the past, we look forward to seeing you again! If you are thinking of joining or want to see what our swim team is all about, we can't wait to meet you. This will also be a fundraising event, so plan to stay after you register and enjoy some Sweet Frog. 
If you have questions, please contact the Wildwood Swim Team Board via email:
(Pool will close at 4:30 pm for home swim meets.)
