Couple of announcements

Pick up Time is 5:55pm. Us coaches will do what we can to be done by 5:55pm. Please text your athlete and tell them where you are parked and they will come to you. Athletes, if you don’t hear from your parent, please text them. Athletes, please wait in the gym or on the patio until your ride is available… and please walk single file in the road or in the grass. Athletes who drive themselves, please drive extra slow and careful. We know this is not an ideal situation for pick up, but it’s what needs to happen for the time being. The team is working on a better solution.

Saturday- Mattress Fund Raiser! Please share the information with all of your local friends and family (or out of town friends and family if they want to come buy a mattress on Saturday), ask them to pass it along as well. The key to this fundraiser being a success is passing the word along.

We also need athletes to volunteer for shifts to help direct traffic, hold signs etc. The sign up sheet is by the door at the boathouse. Please sign up if you have not already.
