If you would like to join PG Pool, please add your name to the waiting list here.
As of September 2013, the waiting list is very long, with more than 800 families waiting to join. Before the 2013 season, we were able to offer a spot to the first 60 or so families on the list, so we do not expect it to clear for several years.
