Thanks for hanging in there through the rain.
What a way to finish the regular season! Great swims again this week and we won by 8 points. 390-382. This is a great example that every swimmer matters!
Thanks again to all our volunteers...we can't do this without you!
Look for emails Sunday and Monday about Medal meets.
Tomorrow morning is our last regular meet of the season at home against Oakleigh Forest. Please be at the pool and ready for warm-ups at 8:00 am. The theme of the meet is Patriotic so get all of your red, white, and blue & stars and stripes out and ready to go! The forecast for tomorrow looks fairly cool and rainy. If you have a tent, please bring it.
Please look out for an Sign Up Genius email for the 2018 End of Season Banquet. Mission BBQ is catering again this season. The cost per person (over 5 years old) will be $10.00 and includes dinner, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverages. I'll be collecting money beginning tomorrow at the meet and will continue to throughout next week at practice. If you prefer to drop it off at my house, please feel free. I'll leave a box on my porch.
Don't forget about our bubble themed pep-rally tonight. Thanks to Tina and Brian Fellner to putting it together!
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! This week is a little quiet as far as swim team is concerned, but we've got 2 meets next week. If you haven't already, please take a minute and declare your availability on Team Snap for the upcoming meets on Tuesday, 7/10/18 at Fair Oaks and Saturday, 7/14/18 at Chase Creek.
We have several upcoming Social Events:
Sunday, 7/8- Popcorn & PJ's in the Clubhouse from 6:00-7:30. We will be showing Sing to all of our 8 and under crowd. Please bring cushions and blankets to relax on. Popcorn and Lemonade will be served.
Sunday, 7/8-Dive In Movie Night starting at 8:30. We will be showing Black Panther to the 9 and over kids crowd. Bring your floatie! Root Beer Floats will be served.
Thanks to BSTC for hosting Movie Night!
Tuesday, 7/10- Pancake Breakfast at 8:30 in the clubhouse. We'll also take the team photo and solo photos (if you want) after breakfast so please wear your team suit.
Our calendar lists Wednesday, 7/7 as Water Park Day. At this time we do not have a volunteer to coordinate this event. If there is anyone that is planning to attend and would be willing to coordinate, please contact me. Unfortunately, if we don't have a coordinator we will not have this event.
Lastly, we have a need for concessions volunteers and second half timers for the last home meet on 7/21 against Oakleigh Forest. The concession position is for the duration of the meet, but you're able to take many breaks and watch your swimmer compete. Another option would be to have a friend split the job with you.
Thanks to everyone for doing their part and more!
Hi Marlin Families,
Thank you for the wonderful send off. It was so nice!!! My family was blessed by your thoughtfulness. I have enjoyed getting to know you and your swimmers. I truly love summer swim team and seeing how it brings the community together. Please send me updates about how everything is going. My kids and l will be thinking of you often. If you ever want to come for a visit down to Virginia Beach, you are always welcome. Looking forward to coming back in late July to see everyone and to help out.
On another note, this email list is accurate and can be used if you need to send anything out. You can also use teamsnap as well.
Stay Calm and Swim On! Go Marlins!
