    Clubs, Resorts In Any Climate Benefit From Patio Umbrellas, Cabanas

    When you think of big, colorful umbrellas and cabanas, hot days, cold drinks and the need to hide from the sun usually come to mind. But clubs and resorts in tropical climates are not the only beneficiaries of such shady amenities; ski resorts and other cold-weather locations will find just as much use for them. If your resort operates year-round, and your packing those patio umbrellas and cabanas away when ski season arrives, here's why it's time to rethink that idea:

    Why sun protection matters in a cold climate

    What Type Of Patio Umbrella Is Best For Your Resort?
    Patio umbrellas are one of the best conveniences you can provide for your resort guests. They provide a space protected from the elements for your guests to relax in and still enjoy the outdoors. Tired parents can supervise their children in comfort, and folks can watch the sunset while secure. However, delivering the most comfort to your guests requires picking the best umbrella for your property. Which one should you pick? That is a question that only you can answer, but here are few general things to consider while you are out shopping for your resort.

    Cantilever Umbrellas

    Do you have an open area where the sunlight moves dramatically throughout the day? Cantilever umbrellas may be your best bet.

  4. Throw an Unforgettable Pool Party with a Misting Cabana

    Throw an Unforgettable Pool Party with a Misting Cabana

    Pool parties are one of the great luxuries of modern life. You can lounge and work on your tan or dive into the deliciously cool water for a few laps with your friends. Whether it's a birthday or just an excuse to get together and sip cool drinks with your feet in the water, pool parties are one of the few things that children and adults can both completely agree on. Hanging out by the pool is fun, relaxing, and a great way to unwind over the weekend between long weeks of work or school. Some people will spend almost the entire party actually in the water, swimming, playing water sports in the shallow end, or practicing their dive over and over again but in the grand scheme of things, most people prefer to lounge, chat with their friends, and snack on tasty treats rather than actually jump in. Of course, once the sun is hot enough to warm the water up to a nice toasty 80 F or so, it's gotten pretty sweltering out on the pavement. Most pool parties feature some form of shade for overheating

    Cooling Ideas for Youth Athletic Events

    Sports are fun for young athletes and their parents, but what's not always so much fun is sitting in the hot sun during a race or a soccer or baseball game. For the parent, the heat can greatly diminish the joy of being out there with your kids. For the athlete, high temperatures can affect performance, and adults aren't the only ones who are susceptible to heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and even heat stroke; in fact, kids may be at a greater risk for heat-related illness: "...a child's body surface area makes up a much greater proportion of his overall weight than an adult's, which means children face a much greater risk of dehydration and heat-related illness." Aside from this potentially serious possibility, being overly hot depletes a child's energy and make the game a

    After all, we all want to enjoy the opportunity to relax outside, but when it gets really hot out, it's hard not to retreat inside. If you have the right equipment, you can design and build your own private oasis that will include misting systems to keep you cool even on the hottest days.

    The first thing you need to decide is what kind of sun cover you want to have. There is only so much tanning a person can do in a day- it's essential to have some cover to escape the sun, or else everyone will wind up with sunburn. There are two good choices for outdoor shade: patio umbrellas or a backyard cabana

    The cabana is more elaborate, but it offers more coverage and a wow factor that the utilitarian umbrellas can't match. On the other hand, umbrellas are more versatile and can fit in more spaces. Once you have your sun coverage,
