Rye Golf Club Pool is Cooking 15,000 Burgers/Day. Kinda…

Rye_pool_05262007_1It was only 70 days ago when we were sledding at Rye Golf Club. This Memorial Day weekend marked the opening of the Rye Golf Club pool for the 2007 season. The thundershowers promised by the local weather forecasters never materialized and instead mother nature delivered 80 degree temperatures to kick-off the summer.

Swimmers may have noticed less of an "edge" when they took their first dive of the season. Losing that edge and heating the pool early in the season is running members $1,500/day in propane. That is a LOT of propane. How much?

I can fill my barbecue tank up at Brewer’s for about $20.

I can conservatively cook 200 burgers on a tank.

For $1,500, I can fill my propane tank 75 times and cook 15,000 burgers–one for every Rye resident.

Every Day. But it is BYOB. and B (burger). That would be one heck of a "family fun day"…
