Info for Our First Meet
We apologize for this email coming out so late, but we couldn't exchange data with Truro until 9 tonight. Attached to the email will be a meet sheet and helpful report to simplify finding which events your swimmer is seeded in the meet.
However, before you leave me to check that out, we have a lot of additional information for you, so sit tight and read on...
Friday Evening - Pot Luck at the Back Patio. We will start at 7 pm, so please be on time with your wonderful dishes. The sign up is on SwimTopia, please join us! You will also need to bring plates, utensils, napkins and your choice of beverage. Bringing extra chairs is helpful as well. Please log in to SwimTopia, go to Meets and Events and click on the Sign Up Calendar and find the Pot Luck. We look forward to seeing you there. **We do have swimmers with nut/tree nut allergies, please keep that in mind when selecting a dish to bring.
Immediately following Dinner - We will set up the pool for our meet with Truro. While the adults are setting up the pool, the swimmers will chalk the driveway to welcome our visitors. If you are new to the team, an older swimmer will show them the ropes.
Ken Stockard has challenged us to beat last weeks' pool set up time of 23 minutes. There may or may not be PB Ribbons awarded if we can get it done faster...
Also after Dinner - We would like to have a meeting with the officials that are signed up to work the meets this summer. Just a quick meeting to go over a few things. Please attend, if you are working the meet as a Ref, Starter and/or Stroke & Turn.
Swimmer Availibility - If you haven't done so already, please go in to SwimTopia, under Meets and Events, click on Sign Up Calendar and choose Meet Entry. Select Edit to update your swimmers availibility for the upcoming events. This is extremely helpful to us and our coaches when they select the swimmers for the meets. We want to know for ALL meets.
Swimmers who are swimming in the meet should be at the pool by 7:45 am. Our warm up is from 8:00 - 8:25 am. The meet will start at 9:00 am. Our team area will be in the back, while our visitors, Truro, will be on the upper patio. Please remind your swimmer to have their team suit, cap, goggles, sunscreen, water and some $$ for concessions! The concessions make money for the swim team, please support us. We will have breakfast and lunch options.
If possible, drop your swimmer at the driveway of the pool and park on the street. We would like to offer as many parking spaces to our visitors as possible.
We are almost all set for Officials for the meet, we need a second half Marshal. Please consider signing up or at least don't turn away from us in the morning when we ask for a volunteer!
Thank you for reading to the end. If there are questions or concerns, please find us at practice or tomorrow evening.
