Summit recreation centers work to expand amenities as health regulations allow

FRISCO — The recreation centers in Silverthorne and Breckenridge are working to slowly roll out more offerings as resources and health regulations allow.

The Silverthorne Recreation Center has expanded its operating hours to 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays, adding an additional three hours open to the public. Before the change, the center was open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and closed from 1-3 p.m. for cleaning. The center will no longer close in the afternoons.

Recreation Center Manager Steven Herrman said the center also has reopened some amenities, including some lockers and showers, and added household reservations for the pool or gymnasium. In these two areas, people from the same household can reserve up to four spots in the gym or five spots in the pool. Pickleball reservations for up to four people also are available.

Herrman said that while the center would like to open up some weekend hours for individual workouts and classes, there currently isn’t enough staffing to do so. However, the facility is still used on weekends for swim lessons and for middle school and high school club sports that typically would practice at the high school.

Herrman said the center is preparing for more demand as the weather changes and people move to indoor exercise. 

“Right now, our focus is going to be really dialing in our current operations, trying to educate on some of our policies and procedures a little bit more, and trying to work toward some weekend hours while balancing everything,” Herrman said.

The final fall program session for November and December opened for registration Monday, Oct. 19. The programs provide after-school activities like swim lessons, gymnastics, volleyball or outdoor activities. Herrman said mornings are busier and tend to fill up with 25 available reservations per 45-minute time slot. Evening hours are gaining more traction, and Herrman expects them to fill up when the snow starts to set in. He noted that capacities won’t be expanded unless the county’s COVID-19 dial moves in a positive direction. 

In an effort to step up sanitation measures, Herrman noted that a bipolar ionization system was installed in the facility’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system at the beginning of the month. Currently, maintenance staff is testing the system for efficiency. 

“We’re definitely constantly exploring better ways to improve the safety of our indoor space so we can keep our doors open,” Herrman said. 

Farther south, the Breckenridge Recreation Center has a maximum use capacity of 50 people indoors and is open from 5:30-7 p.m. weekdays, which is a 90 minute extension from when the center originally reopened. While the climbing wall, leisure pool and indoor playground remain closed, lap lanes are open, and the personal training program

Summit Hotel offers its own take on Oktoberfest this weekend

CINCINNATI — The Coronavirus pandemic has forced organizers to put new twists on many traditional events in Cincinnati.

This weekend the Summit Hotel in Madisonville, in partnership with Taft’s Brewing Co., is the latest place to offer a new way to celebrate Oktoberfest in Cincinnati.

“What we’ve done is brought that traditional Downtown festival spirit atmosphere here to the Summit,” said Martin Pittman, vice president of operations for The Summit Hotel.

The Summit Hotel will host four days of Oktoberfest fun beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday.

The Summit can host up to 300 Oktoberfest fans within its 32,000-square-foot event facility, including the Overlook Kitchen and Bar.

“We have specifically sat our seating arrangements to maximize the physical distancing as well as the enjoyment and the number of guests that can come here,” Pittman said.

For this weekend’s Oktoberfest, the Overlook Kitchen and Bar’s chef de cuisine, Matt Corina, also created a new menu that incorporates traditional Oktoberfest fare.

“A good amount of sauerkraut, mustard, cabbage,” Corina said of his specialty menu. “I’m a huge fan of this type of food. And I want to allow the Overlook and Summit Hotel to be more a part of Cincinnati and the culture this city has.”

One of Corina’s Oktoberfest menu’s centerpieces is a seven-ounce burger topped with beer cheese and bacon crumbles along with house pickles and house coleslaw on the bottom. The chef is serving the burger on a fresh pretzel bun.

On the beer side of things, Taft’s Brewing Co.’s Oktoberfest will balance out Corina’s menu.

“When they approached us about the idea of doing a socially distanced, safe Oktoberfest, we jumped at the opportunity,” said Whit Hesser, the chief operating officer for Taft’s Brewing Co. “We’re looking forward to this weekend.”

Beyond the food and the beer, the Summit’s Oktoberfest will also feature games, food trucks and fun for all.

“It’s a family event,” Pittman said. “We have the Fowling Warehouse. We’ve got Honey Child Artisan Pops. So, we have something for everyone.”

Thursday’s kickoff to the Summit’s Oktoberfest is open to all, no reservations required.

“And then ticketed events for Friday, Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening, as well as Sunday,” he said. “And you get to pick your seat, guarantee your seat as a ticketed event.”
