Don’t worry, there are not bugs in the water.
The “grasshopper” is Jason.
We have a company-wide “coaching” program that involves park directors coaching full-time managers.
It’s fun. Especially for bossy know-it-alls like me. (Is it fun for you, too, Jason? Yes, of course it is …)
From the start, I’ve called Jason my “grasshopper.”
He was so disappointed to find out, months later, that I was referring to a TV show, not some spiritual character from a folk tale of yore.
Anyway, usually my grasshopper is the manager of our Human Resources department. But next week, he’s the swimming grasshopper.
That’s Jason in the middle, flanked by Jordan and Justine. They’re refreshing his lifeguarding skills so he’ll be ready for next week.
Because next week, our staff shrinks considerably. Not some new diet, alas. It’s back-to-school time in southern Indiana.
To prepare for next week, some of the office staffers are dusting off their various in-park skills so they’ll be ready to join operations folks to help next week go swimmingly well.
Here’s Jason “saving” Justine:
If you visit during the latter half of the next week (Wednesday through Friday) it might help to know ahead of time that The Wave will be open (and Bahari wave pool closed), Bahari River will be open (and the Congo River plus Bamboo Chute and AmaZOOM will be closed).
And remember, no raising Caine in the water park. A grasshopper is watching.
