Reminder - tonight's Adaptive Kayaking Open House event has been moved to the Los Altos Pool at 10100 Lomas Blvd.
Hi everyone,

Sierra Vista Pool let us know today that somehow the pool was double booked for this Saturday. Even though we were the first ones to book the pool, the other person who booked the pool for this Saturday refuses to give up the pool registration.

We are able to have our adaptive kayaking open house at the inside Los Altos pool located at 10100 Lomas Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87112 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

I sent an email to everyone who has registered to the open house requesting they let me know whether they will still be coming to the adaptive kayaking open house this Saturday June 11 at the Los Altos pool.

We need to know if anyone will be coming since the venue will be an inside pool (covid concerns, etc).

Sorry everybody. This really stinks, Sierra Vista was really looking forward to having us at their pool.

I will change registration form and webpage next.

Hi everyone, we are excited about tonight! The pool isn't as big as what we are normally use so we're not going to be able to have as many kayaks in the pool at the same time.

West Mesa Aquatic Center does have a slide and water features so everyone should have a fun time.

I just spoke to Rio Rancho Aquatic Center -- they hope to open up their facilities to rentals in July. They still have a lifeguard shortage.

See all of you who registered tonight. It should be a great time!

Hi everyone,

I spoke with Rio Rancho Aquatic Center again yesterday to see if we could start back up with the monthly adaptive kayaking events in January 2022. Unfortunately, they are still not allowing rentals on Saturday nights.

I will keep you all posted when we're able to start back up again. Everyone stay safe, and we miss you!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Have a blessed time of year.

Take care,

Jane, Crystal, Christine, Jeanette, and Loretta

Sierra Vista will only close the pool if there is lightning within 10 miles or if it is raining so hard the life guards can't see the bottom of the pool.

Our event tonight will continue if it is just normal rainfall.

Weather is predicted to be 68 degrees with a 49% chance of rain.

If you have signed up for our event tonight, please let me know if you will not be joining us.

Just an FYI - I just called the Rio Rancho Aquatic Center. They still have a shortage of life guards but hope to allow Saturday evening Adaptive Kayaking Open Houses starting in January 2022. It will depend upon their ability to hire enough life guards.
