1. Final Word
The pool manager has the right to refuse admission to any guest.
2. Guest Registration
Subject to the other provisions of these rules, a member, dependent (meeting the age requirements set forth in these rules), or babysitter may bring guests to the club. The member, dependent, or babysitter escorting the guest(s) must declare the presence of the guest(s) upon entering club grounds. Upon use of a guest pass, or payment of the guest fee(s), by the member, dependent, or babysitter, the guest(s) shall have access, subject to the other provisions of these rules, to the pool and tennis courts for a one day period. The member, dependent, or babysitter escorting the guest(s) must remain on the premises until the guest(s) leave(s).
3. Maximum Number of Guests During Peak Season
No member household may escort more than 5 guests at a time on Saturdays or Sundays during Peak Season. Peak Season starts on the second Saturday in June (inclusive) and ends on the last Sunday of July (inclusive).
4. Large Groups of Guests
No more than ten guests may be signed in under one membership without prior approval of the AFC president or the Special Events Chairs. Large groups of 20 or more non-members will be considered only at the discretion of the Board. Request forms for events with more than ten guests should be completed and submitted to the Special Events Chairs at least 30 days prior to the event. The forms are available on the AFC Web site and at the kiosk. The Special Events Chairs are responsible for notifying the pool manager of approved events.
5. Advance Purchase Guest Passes and Guest Passes
Members that wish to bring guests must obtain 10-visit guest cards. Each 10-visit guest card is valid for ten guest admittances ($5 per guest per visit). Guest cards expire after three seasons (including the season for which they are originally issued), but may be extended upon the approval of the Board or the designee of the Board. Guest cards are non-transferrable. Guest cards must be purchased at the time of paying dues. Members wishing to purchase guest cards during the season must make special arrangements with the membership manager; while every attempt will be made to accommodate special requests, the availability of guest passes on short notice is not guaranteed. Members that wish to bring guests to the club, but that fail to bring a guest pass to the club must pay $10 per person per visit for guests age 5 and over, and $5 per guest per visit for children age 12 months to 4 (exact change is required). There is no charge for infant guests under 12 months.
6. Guest Passes for Households with Two or Fewer Members
Memberships with two or fewer members and/or dependents residing in the household may order two complimentary Guest Passes (a total of 20 guest admittances) at the time of paying dues. Memberships with two or fewer members and/or dependents includes, for example, a membership of two members with no dependents, or, for example, a membership of one member and one dependent.
7. In-House Summer Resident
Members may pay a $45 fee for an "in-house summer resident" to have guest privileges (see Rule #2) for a period of 30 days. This pass may be extended for an additional 30 days with an additional payment of $45.
8. Permanent Baby Sitter/Care Giver
Members may pay a "permanent baby sitter/care giver" fee for someone hired to care for the member's children on a regular basis. The sitter can use the pool, tennis courts and facilities only while caring for a member's child. Cost for the summer is $65. If a member has more than one babysitter/caregiver, a separate fee must be paid for each babysitter/caregiver.
9. Non-member Escort of Dependent to Scheduled Lessons and Practices
On a very occasional basis a dependent of a member may be escorted to a scheduled lesson or practice by a non-member escort who remains on the premises during the lesson or practice. In this case, the member is responsible for ensuring that the non-member escort reviews and complies with the Arlington Forest Club Rules. Under this provision, the non-member escort may escort a dependent that does not meet the age requirements set forth in the pool rules. The non-member escort must remain in street attire during the visit and will not be required to present a guest pass or pay a guest fee. The dependent and non-member escort may only remain on the premises for the duration of the scheduled lesson or practice. The non-member escort of a dependent provision should only be invoked in emergency or unusual situations (e.g., grandparent escorting a member's child to a swim lesson when members are out of town for a brief time). If dependents are to be regularly escorted to the club by a non-member, the member must follow the procedure outlined in the permanent babysitter provision.
