Dave Hoskins and Tony Spencer have devoted untold hours to building the pool and poolroom, as well as much of the rest of the interior of the building. Determined to be the first people to dive in the pool, they arranged a secret assignation before other club members arrived.

Chairman Robin Maggs was instrumental in getting the whole clubhouse venture off the ground. He then skillfully guided the entire construction process as the official project manager. On the pretext of gathering members together for a group photo, the opportunity was taken to divest Robin of his jacket and shoes and ensure that he became the next person to "celebrate" the pool coming in to use.
