Everyone's post that I've read recently and what we've done before........if a chair sits vacant for a long time, just remove the belongings, take over to the towel drop off place and leave them there. If and when someone does show up, tell them the staff removed their things and they are probably over at the towel drop off area. People will go up at 6:00 a.m. leave their book and towel and show up after lunch. That's not fair and they know it. It's different if someone in a party takes a chair and holds the one beside you say for your daughter who will be there in 30 minutes or so............but don't hold 10 chairs for 3-4 hours...............that's just rude.
