City Seeking Name Suggestions for the New Pool Facility

Posted on February 20, 2020 at 2:14 PM by Michael Churchill

Do you have great ideas swimming around in your head? Then you may want to dive into this opportunity to make a splash! The City is soliciting naming suggestions for the new pool facility. The only restriction is that due to a recent resolution passed by City Council, City facilities can’t be named after people (they will still be honored by plaques in key locations). Hence, the Kathy Pototsky Bad Pool Pun Pool is sunk before submission. I may still try to float the idea, but will likely be told that my concept is shallow and that I should stay in my own lane. If you have deeper ideas and are buoyed by the thought of having your suggestion forever on a building, the simple stroke of a computer key may lead you to bubble to the top. Here is how to wade into the mix:

Suggestions must be e-mailed to Rifle Parks and Recreation Director, Tom Whitmore, at  by 8:23 p.m. on Friday, March 6th, 2020.

To submit a qualified entry;

1. The subject line of the e-mail must state the words “Pool Name:” followed by the suggested name. 

2. The body of the e-mail must include the name, address, and phone number of the person submitting the suggestion.

Rifle City Council will make the final determination on the name of the pool.   The decision will be announced the week of March 9th. 

So dip your toe in!  You may just submerge the competition!
