  • Main/Wading Pools closed on Saturday 9/17
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/09/17 11:26:07

    Due to the unseasonably cool and wet temperatures, we'll not be opening the main and wading pools today. The lap pool, however, remains on its normal schedule. Tomorrow looks to be clear and sunny, however, so it looks like we'll finish out the season on a high note.  

  • Family Campout changed to Saturday, Oct 1st
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/09/23 15:59:31

    The rain continues to linger, so we've made the decision to postpone the Family Campout until October 1st! Even if you can't (or don't want to) stay the whole night, you are welcome to come for any or all of the cookout, the campfire, the sparklers, or the smores. The cost is $3/person ($5 per non-member guest) and we ask that your RSVP to the office (684-6672) by next Friday so we're sure to have enough provisions.  

  • DFC Sweatshirts order deadline approaching
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/09/16 16:18:55

    Show your DFC pride with a t-shirt, or new for the fall season, a hooded sweatshirt! T-shirts are for sale in the front office for $12. Sweatshirts are for sale for $25 and will be ordered in mid-September. If you would like to order a sweatshirt, contact the office by September 18th. Gray and dark blue sweatshirts in any size are available.  

  • Football Tailgate on Saturday
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/08/31 13:04:40

    A reminder to come by the DFC tailgate this Saturday before heading over to cheer on the Devils in their season opener against Richmond. The weather looks to be fantastic for this weekend's festivities so we expect to have a large crowd. To help us prepare for the rush we ask that you do the following:

    No RSVP this year

    • Instead of taking RSVPs for 400 people (as we did last year), we're just going to order a large amount of food and assume that there will be enough people to eat it all! The food will be ready at 4:00pm at the picnic shelter.


    • As we do for all football games, we'll have a parking lot attendant checking for current stickers. If you have guests that will be arriving in a non-DFC vehicle (no stickers), you'll need to call the office and let us know. Since space will be at a premium, we will turn away any cars without stickers that are not on our guest list.

    • We historically fill our parking lot by the early afternoon. There are little to no overflow options on football Saturdays, so please plan your arrival accordingly. Carpooling, if possible, is always great option.


    • Although there is no cost to members for the Saturday tailgate, we are modifying the guest fees accordingly:

    • For guests that arrive in your vehicle and just head over to the game: No charge

    • For guests that just join you at the pool, fitness center, tennis, etc: $5 adult/$3 child (normal charge)

    • For guests that also join you at the pig pickin' : $10 adult/$5 child

    Saturday's Schedule

    • 1:00pm - 4:00pm - Pool Games

    • 2:00-3:30pm - Tennis Social

    • 2:00-3:00pm - Face Painting

    • 4:00pm - BBQ, chicken, fixin's and drinks available in the shelter

    • 5:00pm - Punt, Pass, & Kick Competition for kids on the basketball courts

    • 7:00pm - Football game begins


  • Main/Wading Pools closed on Saturday, 8/27
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/08/27 09:33:46

    Due to the wind, rain, and general unpleasantness of the day we have decided to close the main and wading pools. The lap pool will remain open (barring no thunder/lightening), as will the fitness room and group fitness classes.

    Thankfully the storm is passing though and tomorrow looks to be a spectacular day!  

  • Privates swim lessons are now available
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/06/02 23:01:22

    We've streamlined the registration process for our private swim lessons in order to make it easier and smoother for members. You can now view the availability calendar online so that you can be prepared with your requested day/time when you call or stop by the office to register. Check it out here: Private Swim Lessons.  

  • Aqua Devil swim team information is now available
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/02/03 13:53:43

    The summer swim season is quickly approaching and the parent reps, coaches, and DFC have been working hard to prepare for the coming year. The 2010 Aqua Devil season was one of unprecedented growth and successes and we're looking forward to building upon that in 2011.

    All information and pertinent details are posted on our website here: Aqua Devils You'll find information on registration, practice schedules, meet schedules, and the return of the developmental swim team the Little Devils.

    The pre-season meeting is scheduled for Saturday, February 26 at 2:00pm  

  • DFC open for business!
    Eamonn G Lanigan, 2011/01/12 09:11:02

    The DFC is back open and ready for business.  The parking lot, however, remains slick in many spots, so please use caution when walking to and from your vehicle.
