This Week at Russell Mill

August 14-August 20



 Recipients of the Harriet Kinnett Sportsmanship Award

For the first time since 1996, RMSTC captured the Summer Aquatic League Championship help at Cedardale Athletic Club.  Congratulations to all swimmers, parents, and coaches on an outstanding job over the course of the season.  Hard work pays off!

There were only 5 people at Cedardale on Saturday who were present the last time RMSTC captured the SAL title:  4 of whom were Coach Craig and his parents along with Harriet Kinnett.  We have not verified this, but rumor has it that Coach Craig was in fact wearing his lucky Speedo from 1996 under his clothes on Saturday.  NOBODY can question his love of the sport!!

Thank you to everybody that volunteered to help make the Swim, Dive, and Tennis Banquet a great day for the kids of Russell Mill!

Staff Appreciation Cookout –  Wed. 8/16   Club Closed at 7:00

The Annual Staff Appreciation Cookout is Wednesday 8/16 at 7PM.  The club will be closing at 7 PM to give them an opportunity to relax a bit after a long summer and enjoy the summer while forcing our club president to roll up his sleeves and man the grill for the evening.


Last Day of Lessons is Thursday, 8/17

We hope you have found the lessons to be safe, fun, and instructional.  Please make every effort to attend your final lessons this week.  Of course, your coaches and instructors would love it if you decide to continue your sport in the off season.  If you need some advice about where to do so, please feel free to inquire in the office.

Family Cornhole Tournament  – September 1 – 7:00 $5/pp

Wicked Cornhole will be returning to help us run our end of the year Family Cornhole Tournament.  Music and Entertainment will be provided by Derek Robinson Entertainment

Last year, this event was an enormous success that we hope to build on.  Mark your calendars!

More details and an Evite to follow.


Entering and Exiting the Club – This cannot be stressed enough. The driveway closest to the clubhouse is the entrance. The driveway closest to the dumpster is the exit. Please inform your guests of this before their arrival. We have witnessed several near accidents already this season.
Babysitter Pass –  All non family members functioning as your babysitter and watching your children while you are not at the club should have a Babysitter Pass.  
Last one out?? – We would love for members to enjoy the club after hours. Members are allowed to stay in the picnic area after the staff has left for the evening. If you stay after closing, it is your responsibility to lock the bathrooms and the main gate upon leaving. Playing tennis? Be sure that the lights are off and that both the back and main tennis gates have been locked.
Umbrellas, Tables,etc – Please do not attempt to move umbrellas and tables. The umbrellas on the deck should not be moved to the picnic area, etc. The umbrellas on the pool deck are attached to heavy bases. It appears that someone attempted to move one last week and dropped it, causing the stand to break. The umbrellas take a beating in the windy conditions. Please make sure to lower your umbrella when you are done using it. This will help prolong their life. Occasionally, an umbrella will break from the stress of the wind. If you notice this, please do not attempt to remove the umbrella yourself. Ask a staff member for assistance.
