What the heck happened with the entry process at Banneker Pool this weekend?

“Dear PoPville,

I went to Banneker pool Sunday and there was a long line at around 11AM. Figured it was just busy for the 4th. Got to the line and we were being told to register for our DPR pass. Everyone in line given a piece of paper with QR code to scan and then register on the site.

However, once registered, when you got to the front of the line, they took your ID and had to… I dunno? Type in your info slowly to match it to your registration? It took around 7-10 minutes per person. One woman said she was already in line for a whole hour, and the line had barely moved. I was there about 20 minutes and only 2 people were registered.

From Georgia Avenue I could see that the pool was nearly empty! Why why why are they doing this on the 4th of July?”

Alisha also wrote: “this Banneker pool situation is ridiculous. We’ve been waiting almost an hour and still not to the door. No announcement to the line on what’s happening or how to register either.”
