Flat Flipper Adventures
Our Flat Flipper wants to be your travel companion! Flat Flipper is the ERC Aquatic’s version of the Flat Stanley Project. Pick up one of our Flat Flippers and take him on your next trip. Take a picture with Flat Flipper and send to the ERC Aquatics Team. We will post them to Facebook so everyone can see your adventure.
Swimming in Memories: September 1 - 10
Grandparents are swimming in memories. Bring in photos new or old of you and your family, enjoying some fun at the pool, beach or lake. Share your stories for grandparent’s day.
Meet Me at the Rec Game 2.0: September
We had so much fun at the last “Meet Me at the Rec,” so we are upping our game for version 2.0. Each week, we will post some facts about our employees. If you can guess who the employees are for the week, we will give your team a point. The team with the most points will win an ERC Aquatics T-shirt. Register with Christy or Jen by September 1 and then we will randomly assign teams.
Spooky Swim: October
Each day for Halloween, there will be spooky water fitness activities to complete before your class workout or lap swim. It won’t be too scary to add a little bit extra to your daily workout.
Ghosts & Ghouls in the Pool: October 31
Let’s bring out your inner child. Show us your inner pirate or an angel at heart! Dress-up for Halloween and attend our instructor-led classes. We will have a costume contest and the winner wins a fun Halloween treat!
Give Thanks by Giving: November 1 - 20
ERC Aquatics wants to help fill the shelves of the Salvation Army Food Pantry for the holidays. We will be accepting canned and dry goods for the month of November. Spread some hope and thankfulness in this season of giving.
In honor of Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage month, we will be playing trivia based on these two subjects. Brush up on your knowledge and join in on the fun! Each day a different trivia question will be posted on the Aquatics Announcement Board. Submit your answer and all correct answers will be submitted into a drawing for a Thanksgiving Basket.
Count your Cookies: December
Let’s keep you on track with your fitness goals. Keep track of how many cookies you eat during the month of December. For each cookie you eat, you will have to do a little extra before your fitness class or lap swim. Each day, the lifeguard will post what the extra workout will be; might be 10 jumping jacks or run the width of the pool.
Elf at the Rec: December
Santa’s Scout Elf will be visiting the ERC and each day will be watching you to ensure that you are behaving. At the end of the day, the elf will fly back to the North Pole and report to Santa. If you find the Elf at the Rec, you will receive a special treat and be entered into a drawing for a Christmas Basket. The drawing winner will be announced on December 22.
