1. Introduction:
       The safety and enjoyment of the members of the community are of
       primary concern in the operation of our pool and clubhouse at
       Stonewall Ranch. If we show courtesy and consideration for others
       in our use of these community facilities, only a minimum of rules
       and guidelines should be needed.

       No lifeguards will be on duty. Persons using the pool do so at their
       own risk. Pool capacity is 115-which is the maximum persons
       allowed in the pool at any one time. Please abide by the rules and
       guidelines, and avoid any activity that interferes with the swimming
       enjoyment of others.

       As conditions change and use of the pool increases, it may be
       necessary for the Pool Committee to make recommendations to the
       Board of Directors for changes to the pool rules and procedures.
