For those of you unfamiliar with the new facility, I had been posting the construction progress over the past few months. There are three pools on property, an 8 lane, 50m long course pool (used in the 2008 Olympic trials), a 6 lane 25 yard pool, and a therapy pool. The building and pools are finished and we are in the final stages required to open.
