As wonderful as swimming, tennis, and relaxing by the pool are, there’s even more fun available at SHBR during the season. Plans are still being made, but here are the social events in store for 2017:
- Summer Kickoff Wine and Cheese Party (Adults Only): Friday, May 26, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Make new pool friends and get together with old ones at this annual start-of-the-summer-pool-season event! Members attend for free and may bring a guest for a small fee.
- SHBR Ping Pong Tourney: Saturday, June 24, beginning at 4 pm. Prepare to earn bragging rights as the SHBR small-paddle champion in your age group at this first-ever SHBR event. Separate competitions for 6-8 year olds, 9-12 year olds, 13-16 years olds, and 17 and up. Sign up to participate in the guardhouse.
- Laser Tag: teenagers, Friday, July 7, 7-9 pm. Battle it out in the back recreation area. Not a teenager? Ages 6-9 will get their “shot” Saturday, July 8, between 1 pm and 3 pm; Tweens (10 years to 12 years) on Saturday, July 8, 3-5 pm; and all ages, Sunday, July 9, 7-9 pm. Games will be scheduled in 15-minute increments to allow maximum participation.
- Mid-Summer Party (Adults Only): Saturday, July 15, 6:30 pm to 10 pm. Live music, catered dinner, and bring your own beverage (no glass!). Additional fee.
- Trivia Night: Wednesday, July 26. Teams of 4 to 6 compete for prizes and bragging rights!
- Cardboard Regatta: Saturday, August 12, 4 pm. Can you create a “boat” using only cardboard and duct tape that can carry you the length of the lower pool? And, if so, can you be the fastest racer? Or will your boat take you the length of the course while winning for design/creativity? Craft your own boat or come August 5 for a cardboard regatta workshop.
- Friday Night Music: Enjoy music by the lower pool on Friday nights from 6-8pm. Check the SHBR calendar to see if someone is playing this Friday. (Have a band you’d like to recommend? Send information on the band, including type of music and contact details, to email@example.com.)
- Movie Nights: Enjoy a family friendly movie under the stars.
- Lobster Roast Party (Adults Only): Saturday, Sept. 2, 6:30 pm to 10 pm. This end-of-season SHBR tradition lets you bid farewell to the pool with live music, catered dinner (including fresh grilled lobster if you choose) and bring your own beverage (no glass). Additional fee.
- Adult Swim (18+ only): Every Sunday morning from 9am-noon. Swim, play tennis, do water aerobics, chill out in the shade. But some say the free coffee and donuts are the real draw.
60th Anniversary Mid-Summer Party(Adults Only): July 16 from 6:30 – 10:00pm.
Plan on joining us for music by Swell and food catered by La Granja D’Oro – back by popular demand! As part of this celebration, we’d like to feature some history of the best pool in NOVA. Have a classic car you’d like show off? Email Cindy about showing it at the Mid-Summer’s Party! Have some pictures that you’d like to see on the big screen that night? Send them to Cindy firstname.lastname@example.org!
- Trivia Night #1: July 29th. Hosted By Trivia Kings. Teams of 4-6 compete for prizes and bragging rights! Get you friends together and come on out. This was a big hit last year, and this year for the teen party.
- Trivia Night #2: Thursday, August 25th. Trivia Kings are back again for our second night of trivia. Same format, teams of 4-6 compete for prizes and bragging rights, so get you friends together and come on out.
Lobster Roast Party (Adults Only): Saturday, Sept 3rd from 6:30 – 11pm.
Always a crowd pleaser. Be sure not to miss this end of season SHBR tradition.
