Back by popular demand, adults over 21 are welcome to join us for our first of two Trivia Nights at the pool—this time run by NCCSPA’s very own Jeopardy star, Gadi Ben Yehuda. Test your knowledge of History, Geography, Religion and Mythology, Math and Science, Pop Culture, Literature, Music, and more! You can sign up your up to 6 member team here. Please register your team by Thursday, June 27 midnight, or sign up as a smaller group to join up with other smaller groups at the pool that night.
We’ll provide wine, beer, and flavored water. Participants also will have the opportunity to sample Keros and Edafos olive oil and herbs produced in Greece by our very own Drakakis family’s relatives.NCCSPA members get a 25% discount off of the AncientFoods.com website with promo code.

July 11 @ 7:30pm.The Land of Woodend explores 400 years of history, mystery, beauty, blight, and transformation on the land that has been home to North Chevy Chase for nearly 100 years and to the Audubon Naturalist Society for the past 50 years. It reveals how we’re renewing habitats and strengthening ties to nature for all in the DC region. It covers the transformation of the NCC region over four centuries, from Native Americans to slavery, tobacco farms, suburbs, and nature preserves. This inspiring, informative 60-minute documentary was created by ANS in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Producer Ben Israel will attend and will be available for Q&A after the film.
We are pleased to extend our morning lap swim a half an hour – 6:00-8:00am Monday-Friday. Enjoy this special time at the pool (listening to the birds and seeing friendly deer faces peer through the fence) while starting your day with some cardio.
Lanes are available on a first-come-first served basis but lap swimmers are encouraged to “circle swim” (staying in the right lane during both lengths of your lap) and to share lanes with other swimmers. During afternoon swim team practice (5:00pm-6:00pm M, T, Th, F), a lap lane will be made available, when possible.
We have selected Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (many pool members have already read and loved!) Click here for more book info! Read the book and come to the discussion on Tuesday evening, July 23rd and bring a thematic dish to share. More information to come, but this announcement gives us all plenty of time to start reading!
