Cottontail Swim and Racquet Club is a member-owned pool and tennis court facility serving communities in and around West Springfield and Burke. Surrounded by Fairfax County parkland and the homes of Orange Hunt Estates, the pool is nestled on 3 wooded acres. Families from the Sangster, Orange Hunt, Cherry Run, and Hunt Valley school districts can be found at Cottontail.
There are lots of fantastic community pools but I only belong to one. Last night we spent some time at a “Raft Night” and I started thinking how nice we have it at Cottontail.
Thanks to a handful of people on the social commity, we enjoy many events not only during the pool season but also throughout the year. Some events include:
- Annual Pig Roast: This years roast had live music!
- Memorial Day Picnic
- Thursday Night Raft Parties: last night’s had a food truck from Austin Grill in Springfield
- Cottontailgate: On any given weekend, at the pool parking lot we tailgate and watch either College or Pro Football
- Annual Chili CookOff: Usually held Mid-October
- Halloween Trunk or Treat: Held at the pool parking which gives the kids an opportunity to show off their costumes and reap in more candy in a safe environment. Awards for the Best Jack O’ Lantern and Costume
- Adult only steak dinners
- Water Shooter Night
- Open Grill Nights
My family and I enjoy Cottontail pool and we have been and will be, members for years. Discover our pool or one near your home, it’s a wonderful opportunity for friendship and memories.
Throughout the years I’ve had several web sites. My last site, http://www.westspringfieldvirginiahomes.com/ ranked well on search engines quickly because the url and content was very focused but I was always torn. Much of my business is in the West Springfield, Burke and Fairfax Station area but I comfortably list and sell homes and help people as a buyers agent all over Northern Virginia and Maryland. A couple of months ago I started http://FairfaxCountyVirginiaHomes.com and it is now my permanent online home. The url is still area specific to benefit my SEO (Search Engine Optimization) but it’s a little more inclusive than just West Springfield. Fairfax County is in the url but I work in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Prince William, Loudoun, Montgomery, Prince Georges, Anne Arundel, Howard…
I have a keen interest in my web presence and try hard to stay in the top 10 results of a Google search. As content is added this site will rank in the top ten. Referrals are a very important and highly valued source of business for me but meeting new people through my web site is also critically important. How do I nurture my web site? I try to write interesting posts and provide good and helpful content. I try to incorporate geographical references in my titles whenever possible and I post links on Twitter, Facebook, Military By Owner and Craigslist when sharing articles or new listings.
If you’re a real estate agent looking for an online solution to promote listings and self, I have many thoughts and I’m very familiar with several providers and/or technologies. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss them.
