Are you asking about Dunworth, Becki? I can check into that.

Do you really have to sew a pool tag on your swim suit? What if you have multiple suits?

It used to be on the suit only, they have recently started letting you sew them on towels or beach bags. The smaller community pools let you put them on your keyring. Just Dunworth is a stickler about it.
