									What is the Meads Pool Spring Splash?
SpringSplash 2011 featuring the first annual Meads Pool Spring Splash is just around the corner on May 7, 2011! The
alternate date is June 4, 2011 incase all necessary repairs are not completed by May. Experience the Splash and you’ll
be exposed to a spectacle like no other! For just $75 in pledges ($50 for Splashers 12 and under) Splash participants take
a quick dip in Meads Pool to raise funds for the repair, operation, and additions, to the only swimming pool in the world
shaped like a roller skate. Anyone can participate! (Under 18 requires parent or guardian signature.) The Splash will be
the single largest fundraiser this year for Meads Pool, turning Meads Pool into THE PLACE TO BE in May. With over 75
Splashers already committed to Splash, prior to our public kick-off campaign, with your help we will be well on our way
to having 500 Splashers take part. With your help this event is sure to become the “can’t-miss” spectacle that includes
much more than just the Splash.

Helping Team Fundraising Hints
Spreading the Word
Be a part of bringing the Splash to the next level. Help promote it by:
     Posting chloroplast signs around your workplace and neighborhood!
     Hang posters, banners, balloons at work, home, or anywhere else you can think of (restaurants, 7-11,
        hairdresser, etc. – of course get permission first).
                 Meads Pool will provide customizable plunge posters for your team to display!
     Don’t be afraid to cast a wider net to help reach your goals (approaching friends of friends, etc.)
     Ask everyone you know for a donation.
     Remember to follow up.
     Stay organized and track both individual and team progress.

Fundraising Event Ideas
Organize and hold fund raisers to bring in the donations!
    Guest bartenders/Happy Hours – ask a local bar if they will sponsor you as a guest bartender or host a happy
       hour with proceeds going to the splash!
    Dress Down Days – have co-workers donate and in turn they can wear jeans to work for a day!
    Matching Gifts – check with human resources at your company to see if they have a matching gift program, this
       is an effective way to double your fundraising efforts!
    Penny Wars – Set up a challenge for your work to try to collect the most points (pennies). Points are given for
       pennies and negative points for silver coins and cash. Others can sabotage by placing money other than pennies
       in the jars. The worker, office, floor, etc. with the most points wins lunch at the losers expense. All money in the
       jars is donated for the Plunge. *Great for schools!
    Meet the Press: Contact the editor of your local paper, company newsletter – or both! Ask them to interview
       you about what your team has undertaken and why, and include a request for support. Be sure to include
       instructions in the story how readers can make a donation to your team.
    Set up a Table at a Local” Hot Spot”: Get permission from a local health club, yoga studio or coffee shop (public
       property may require a permit) to set up a table inside their establishment, and then ask interested patrons who
       pass by to support your team. While this doesn’t sound very glamorous, it’s very effective. Remember that in
       addition to raising funds, you are also playing an important role in raising awareness about Meads Pool.
   Buy a Bachelor – get all of your good looking single friends together, plan a date package for them, and auction
    them onstage to raise money for the plunge!
   Silent Auctions – these are always great fundraisers! Just gather some donated items and auction them to raise
    money for your plunge!
   Company Contribution – Solicit a specific donation from your organization above and beyond that raised by
    your team, apply the credit evenly to all team members.
   Pizza Party - This is a twist on the usual fundraiser dinner. Decide if you would like to make this a pizza buffet,
    set a limit on the number of slices per person, or actually sell the pizza “by the slice."
   Computer Message – ask your company computer guru to have a message pop up on employee’s screens asking
    for a donation. It won’t go away until they give.
   Auction (silent or live) – hold the event at your business, in your neighborhood, or church. Ask for contributions
    of unique items such as homemade toys, art, quilts, knitting, etc. Display items prior to event with description.
   Bake Sale – hold a Friday bake sale at work so employees will have treats for the weekend. Make sure to
    individually wrap items for individual sale.
   Restaurant to the Rescue – ask a local restaurant or café to contribute a portion of the proceeds for a day. It
    could even be a special menu item. Create a sign letting patrons know that the owner will donate half the
    money if purchased.
   Bottle Drives (Recycle) – each team member runs a bottle drive in their area. Go door-to-door and collect
    bottles from neighbors and friends.
   Pennies from Heaven – did you know that one milk jug full of pennies weighs 35 lbs? And did you know that 30
    lbs of pennies is equal to $50? Collect pennies – sit out jars, ask neighbors, etc.
   Bowl-A-Thon – bowlers get pledges for each pin they knock down, or you can just get a flat donation.
Letter Campaign
This is one way to raise a lot of money in a short amount of time! Set aside about four hours one day and you can have it
all done. Write personal letters to your family, friends, and coworkers and let them know you are plunging. You can also
send out an email.
      Make it easy for people to donate; consider including a self-addressed envelope (stamped or not) in the
         envelope when you mail a letter.
      Feel free to compose a one page letter you write on your own as if you were sending it individually to a close
         friend. Use a computer. Copy it twice. Adjust one copy to be sent via email; the other for regular mail.
      Both versions of the letter should begin with a quick apology for the impersonal nature. Include a preface that
         as a friend, you thought they would be interested in this important cause.
      Sent it to everyone who has ever sent you something! For emails, blind copy (bcc) them all. They don’t need to
         know who else is receiving your note; this can result in more than 100 emails.
      Early on, make the ask. Don’t limit your donors, but ask for a specific range. Ask for “$10, $20, $50 or whatever
         your budget will allow.”
      Give a 10 day deadline for response. People will respond when there is a sense of urgency.
      Copy the letters and before stuffing into the envelope, handwrite in colored ink, on the top of the letter the
         person’s name and a quick line, “Hope you can support me.” Sign it to add that personal touch.
      Feel free to use our sample letter/email on the following pages. Remember to share sample letter/email with
         team members to get them started.

Dear [Insert Name]:

I am writing to ask for your help. On May 7, 2011, I have committed to splash in cold water for the repair, and
renovations of Meads Pool by taking a chilly dip into the water alongside hundreds of other warm-hearted
people. A back of date has been set for June 4, 2011 in case all necessary repairs are not done by May.

I know—you’re probably getting cold just thinking about it! But the cold that I will feel is temporary…the
positive impact this will have on the lives of thousands of children and adults in Northeastern North Carolina
will last a lifetime.

I have set a personal fundraising goal of $________, and I need your help to reach it! So no, I’m not asking
you to take the Splash alongside me, but instead, I am asking if you will make a donation to Meads Pool on
behalf of me taking the 2011 Meads Pool Spring Splash. Any amount would be appreciated—it all goes to a
wonderful cause, and every little bit gets me that much closer to my goal.

In order to support my Splash, please make your check payable to “Meads Pool” and return it to me in the
envelope I have provided, or you can mail it directly to their office but please make sure to include my name in
the memo area so that the staff will know where to credit the contribution. The office address is below:



                                                  Meads Pool
                                              Attn: Spring Splash
                                              301 Forest Park Rd.
                                           Elizabeth City, NC 27909


Or, if you prefer the web, visit meadspool.com and click “Sponsor a Splasher.” Type in my name, which will
take you to my personal fundraising page and it will give you the option of making a donation online via credit
or debit card

If you want to learn more about this wacky spring event, visit www.meadspool.com to find out all the chilly
details. Think warm thoughts for me as May approaches. I will do my best to “Make a Splash” and make my
supporters proud!



Thank you!!!

                                      Meads Pool Fact Sheet

WHO WE ARE: Meads Pool is the only swimming pool in the world shaped like a roller skate. Beginning
again in 2011 it will provide open recreational swimming and swimming lessons for families in the
northeastern region of North Carolina. The pool is located in and owned by Pasquotank County. It has
approximately 500,000 gallons of water. The pool has water depths that go from 12in. to 12ft. It has
plenty of shallow water for the little ones. Due to budget concerns in 2009 and 2010 the county decided
not to open the facility. A group of concerned citizens lead by Shirley Meads and Carl Ralph have
decided to make the necessary repairs and operate the pool for Pasquotank County. We will be able to
do this with your support.

OUR HISTORY: Mrs. Meads involvement goes back to the beginning of Meads Pool as she and her late
husband Gene, with support from the community, built the pool in 1978 naming the facility after their
teenage son Alton who had recently passed away. In 1988 Mr. and Mrs Meads rented the pool to Suchy
Enterprises, Inc. a company operated by Tony and Janice Suchy. In 1994 Mr. and Mrs Meads rented the
pool to Carl and Kimberly Ralph through the year 2000. In 2001 Mr. and Mrs. Meads donated the pool
and property to Pasquotank County in hopes that they would be able to obtain grant money to help
renovate and modernize the pool. Carl and Kimberly Ralph continued to rent the pool from the county
through 2002. For many of the years that the pool was open the safety of swimmers at the pool was
provided by the leadership of head lifeguard Steve Vaughan. The county operated the pool from 2003
until 2008 deciding not to operate it in 2009 and 2010. Meads Pool provided swimming lessons to
thousands of children in the northeastern region of North Carolina and provided affordable recreation to
families without them having to be members.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP: The pool is in need of repairs to the pool deck, pool house, pump room,
pool shell, and concession stand. The county has not budgeted funds to help with these improvements.
We hope to raise funds to offset these cost by hosting northeastern North Carolina’s first ever Spring
Splash and Family Fun Day! If we raise funds beyond those needed to repair the pool we will put those
funds back into the pool by adding features to the pool with the approval of the Pasquotank County
Commissioners. We will also establish swimming lesson scholarships and reduced price swimming
lessons to low income residents of northeastern North Carolina. Some of the features that we would
consider adding to the pool would be waterslides, and interactive spray and splash features. The more
you help us the more we can do for the community!

WHO CAN HELP: Anyone ages 5 and up can help raise funds. You can register to be a Splasher at
meadspool.com or if you don’t want to get ALL wet you could register to be a “Chicken Dipper”. Chicken
Dippers are individuals who raise funds and get the same great incentives that Splashers do but they only
have to step into 12 inches of water. There will even be an award for best costume by a “Chicken
Dipper”. For a list of all rewards go to meadspool.com. Individuals 13 and over have to raise $75 in order
to participate while children 5-12 need only to raise $50. Individuals under age 18 will need parental
permission in order to participate. Parental permission forms are available online at meadspool.com.

LET’S DO IT AGAIN! In 1978 the community pulled together to build Meads Pool, a public swimming pool
for the residence of Pasquotank County and surrounding counties. From 1978 to 2008 it gave area
families a place to swim and children a place to take swimming lessons at affordable prices. With the help
of the community in 2011 we will be able to repair Meads Pool and with your continued support we look
forward to transforming Meads Pool into a modern family aquatic facility.
                                           Who Do You Know?
 The key to building a plunge team and successful fundraising campaign both depend on asking people you
know for support. Think about everyone whose lives you touch and ask him or her to join your team or make a
                                                 donation.

 Your list can be overwhelming so use this chart to help you identify people that you know and organize them
 into categories. Start with the easiest people to reach- your family and friends. Next, ask acquaintances and
                                                service providers.

                     Before you know it you will have a complete list of people that you know!

In consideration of participating in the Meads Pool 2011 Spring Splash (“Activity”), I represent that I understand the nature of the Spring Splash event and that I
and/or my minor child am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such Activity. I acknowledge that if I and/or my minor child
believe event conditions are unsafe, I and/or my minor child will immediately discontinue participation in the Activity. I fully understand that the Meads Pool 2011
Spring Splash event involve risks of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, which may be caused by my own actions, or inactions,
those of others participating in the event, the conditions in which the event takes place, or the negligence of the "releasees" named below; and that there may be
other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for losses, costs, and
damages I and/or my minor child incur as a result of my and/or my minor child’s participation in the Activity. I hereby release, discharge, and covenant not to sue
Meads Pool Inc. or Pasquotank County, its respective administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, and employees, other participants, any sponsors,
advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises on which the Activity takes place, (each considered one of the "RELEASEES" herein) from all liability,
claims, demands, losses, or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the "releasees" or otherwise, including
negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk I, or anyone on my and/or my minor child's
behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the releasees from any loss, liability, damage, or cost which any
may incur as the result of such claim.
I have read this RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT, AND PARENTAL CONSENT AGREEMENT, understand that I
have given up substantial rights by signing it and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it be a complete and
unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extend allowed by law and agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid the balance,
notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect.

    Costumes if you wish.
    Extra clothing to keep warm.

    Two medium size towels; one to dry with and one to stand on.
    A dry partner to hold your valuables while you are in the water.
    Clean, dry under garments to wear after Splashing.
    A disposable, waterproof camera that you can carry into the Splash Zone

    Remember there is a No Alcohol Policy: The event will be completely
     alcohol-free. Alcohol will not be sold at the Splash, nor will alcohol be
