Brown: Sun City pool users need to stay in their lanes

Posted

Sun City is the best place to live and the RCSC staff are terrific.

Having said that, I come to the crux of my complaint. The RCSC pool lanes for swimmers have become a never-ending problem because of RCSC member behavior.

Today will be the fourth time I’ve gotten involved in an argument over lane use.

One lady told me she used her name and her husband’s name so she can keep the lane for an hour.

Three times someone has signed up for a lane and not been in it when I arrived. I sign up and then they get in and say “the lane is mine.” How am I supposed to know that? You can’t sign up, then go take a shower or get out in the middle of your time and do something else. I have no way of knowing if it is in use or not unless you’re in it.

This is very simple people. You get the lane for 30 minutes. You get out, you have to sign up again. I have spoken with the director of pools and that is the rule she communicated to me. I have muscular dystrophy and it is hard for me to get back out of the pool. I can’t walk to the desk to clarify and walk back again. It’s becoming a huge problem. Next time, I’m not getting out. So buckle up.
