Towel Shortage

  • People have been taking home an alarming amount of towels from the gym.
  • The towels are solely for the purpose of wiping down equipment.
  • It should not be used for showering or other personal needs.
  • They are hand-towels, so members that plan on using the shower, pool, steam room, etc. should invest on bringing their own towel from home.
  • Towels at the gym are a privilege and should not be abused for the benefit of all other members.

Other up-to-date pool status, events, closing hours from holidays or bad weather, etc. will be posted here.
