July 10, 2018
Oh yes, this news is worth one more e-mail even in this time of rest and recovery from the season. If you're like me you have probably been on pins and needles waiting for the announcement of the winner of the 2018 Corte Madera 4th of July Parade...
Wait no more! It was indeed the triumphant Tidalwaves who scored a hat trick of sorts, bringing home the 1st Place Overall Winner trophy for the 2018 Larkspur/Corte Madera 4th of July Parade--our 3rd 1st place win in as many years! We can all be proud of our team win. Indeed, our raising the bar on the quality of floats in the parade will certainly be a win for the broader community of parade watchers for years to come...that is, if we haven't scared away our competition...
But no 'victory lap e-mail' would be complete without recognizing the many people who made this team win so successful. The Tidalwaves Board would like to thank the very talented people listed below for all their efforts in building not just a float, but our community as well.

In addition to the many, many, many names listed above (and apologies to all I forgot to mention), we also had many, many swimmers and parents come the day of the parade to walk with us, donate and hand out mounds and mounds of candy for the kids to pass out, and many who cheered from the parade route. What a team! Way to GOOO WAVES!
Fall Swim Schedule IS NOW AVAILABLE!
Thank you for your patience as we worked through the final details of our Fall Swim offering for the community. Click here to see the Fall Swim Schedule. Fall Swim Registration will open on August 10th for Tidalwaves programs, and sometime in August for Pirates programs (they are still working out their final details). Until then...let's all go dark for a bit and enjoy the memories of the 2018 season with a little calm and a little R & R!
