March 2022

36 Florida Pool Prosm • March 2022 FSPA CHAPTER NEWS session in Tallahassee and will have all kinds of important news to share. Please plan on attending and showing your support to those who work behind the scenes to help our industry. The Chapter Golf Tournament is set for April 22. We will be at a new course this year –Cimaronne Golf Club, 2800 Cimaronne Blvd., Jacksonville. We will have an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, a continental breakfast, and traditional hot dogs, hamburgers and the fixings for lunch! Looking forward to trying someplace new! Watch your emails for registration! Save the Date! The Skeet Shoot is set for September 9 at Jacksonville Clay Shooting, where we have been before! There are a maximum of 25 carts with two people per cart. If you have your own cart, you are welcome to bring it. If we end up with more than 50 people, each cart is an additional $100. Currently, there is not a firm price as the cost of ammunition is changing weekly! As the event gets closer, we will send out the RSVP with the pricing! We are happy to be highlighting one of our new Board members. This month it is Paul Malone, Oak Wells Aquatics. Here is Paul’s story about getting into the pool business: I started in this industry when my dad took me into the local pool store when I was 14 to get a job...because he wanted a discount on pool supplies. I'm only 31 years old but I have been in this industry since 1996. I started in retail but have been through each phase of this industry from retail, service/repair, wholesale, and construction from the hole up. Currently I run the residential division for Oak Wells Aquatics. I am looking forward to joining the FSPA to see how this association and myself can help benefit our Northeast Florida Chapter partners and the industry as a whole. Please submit any and all suggestions to the Board for events and classes you would like to see us offer for next year. Remember this is your Chapter and your voice counts.
