With perfect weather and thousands of RAGBRAI riders camping in Maytag Park, over 1,700 single-day admissions were sold at Maytag Pool on July 25th. The surge in riders using the pool and showers began in early to mid-afternoon; with the largest crowds and lines encountered between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Riders were still arriving at the 9:30 pm closing time. The pool was staffed that day with extra lifeguards, and only three requests for minor first-aid were noted. Numerous compliments were heard from pool patrons that day not only about Maytag Pool and Maytag Park, but also the entire community and how welcoming everyone was to the RAGBRAI riders.
