We apologize for the date change for College then Beers night. It was originally scheduled for August 20, but was changed to August 27 due to class schedules at MTC. We will update you on this event in next month’s news.

We hope to see you at the FSPA state Board of Directors meeting being held September 20-21 at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota. We encourage our members to come listen in to see what the FSPA does for you and your business in the pool industry. Following our committee meetings on Friday, please join us to mix ‘n mingle with wonderful pool professionals from the state of Florida at Oleary’s Tiki Bar & Grill.
