2019 Summer Pool Party

Saturday, July 20 2019
(Rain date 7/21)
10:00 am – 3:00 pm
8809 Slate Quarry Rd
Dickerson, MD 20842
Hosted by Alex and Steve Roth

This event is for MSDA club members, their families, and their guests. Dogs, too!

Planning to attend? Please let us know by sending an e-mail to Steve Roth.

MSDA will provide grilled hamburger & chicken and cold non-alcoholic drinks. We’re also considering trying some Beyond Meat/ Impossible Burgers or similar. (Want to try a taste?) Attendees should bring a side dish or dessert to share for lunch.

Volunteer opportunities: If you have some grilling skills, we’ll need a grillmaster/chef. Also, perhaps a “sous chef” and, definitely, someone to set out the buffet.

All MSDA members, their guests, family, and well-behaved dogs are welcome. For field-trained dogs, or those who might be interested, there also will be opportunities for informal field training and demonstrations. We’re also thinking of setting up some other courses (rally? obedience? agility?) for fun and demonstrations. When you RSVP, let us know what interests you! (And whether you can bring some equipment and help with activities.)

The pool will be open all day. Dogs are allowed in the pool, subject to careful adult (human) supervision. Bring your floating dog toys and bumpers! To prevent damage to the pool’s edge, dogs should only exit the pool using the stairs at the shallow end.

The Roth’s property is fenced but the gates must be opened when cars enter or exit, so please make sure you keep an eye on your dogs at all times and bring a leash to use as necessary.

If you are planning to attend, please let us know by sending an e-mail to Steve Roth.

Directions: From I-270, take exit 22 onto Rt 109 South toward Poolesville.  After about ¼ mile, branch right onto Slate Quarry Road.  It’s about 1 ½ miles to #8809 on the left. Slate Quarry Rd is paved, but it’s also narrow with curves and no center line. Stay to the right and drive slowly.

It hardly ever rains on MSDA’s Summer Pool Party, but it did last year. Therefore, we’ve set Sunday 7/21 as a rain date this summer. If you’ve RSVP’ed, we’ll let you know by e-mail or phone if the party must be delayed.

Not an MSDA member? Learn more about us, how to join the club, and sign up for our e-mail list. If you’ve attended one of our recent events, it’s not too late to join in time for Summer Pool Party!
