* Fall 2011 facility hours will begin on Thursday, August 25th:  http://recreation.gocrimson.com/recreation/hours

* Members, in order to accommodate the varsity water polo program, the MAC Pool will be open from 7:30am-5:30pm on Wednesdays and Fridays starting the week of August 29. To compensate for opening later than usual, we hope that the extra half-hour at the end of the day will give members the opportunity to have an afternoon or after work swim. We understand this is a vast change from the operating hours for many years, and we hope that the change will be met with patience and understanding. Please contact Justin at justinwright at fas.harvard.edu<mailto:justinwright at fas.harvard.edu> for all pool related inquiries.

* Varsity Water Polo Schedule this week at Blodgett Pool:

Monday 8/22: 2:30pm-5

Tuesday 8/23: 2:30pm-5

Friday 8/26: 2pm-5

Monday 8/29: 6pm-8:30
