Dual Meet with Meadow
This dual meet will be at Miramonte Wednesday, July 7th at 5:30pm. This will be a home meet at the Miramonte pool. Swimmers should be at the pool by 4:15 for warm ups. Volunteers working this meet should be there by 5:00 and check in with the meet directors, Leah Saroni and Anju Lashkari.
This will be a B-only meet. The purpose of "B" dual meets is to promote a rewarding recreational swimming experience for an increased number of swimmers. A "B" swimmer is defined as a swimmer who does not have one of the top six times at his/her club for a given event, does not have a gold time in any event in the current season and did not achieve gold time in the same age group during the preceding season. In addition, a swimmer who has one of the top six times at his/her club for a given event but does not have a silver time or faster in that event may swim as a "B" swimmer in that event.
Le Cheval Parents’ Night
This is one of the most popular MSC social events. This adult-only dinner is located at our very own MSC Dan and Danielle Tran’s restaurant, Le Cheval in Walnut Creek. Look for the evite. You won’t want to miss this event!
Top-of-Age Group Tri-Meet
This Tri-Meet will be at Miramonte Saturday, July 10th. We will swim against Moraga Valley Pool and Moraga Ranch. This meet is only for swimmers ages 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17 and 18. There will be no relays at this meet. Swimmers should be at the pool by 7:50 for warm ups. Volunteers working this meet should be there by 8:30 and check in with the meet directors, Danielle Tran and Betsy Unger. If your swimmer cannot swim at this meet, please sign out your swimmer by Wednesday, July 7th at noon.
Meadow Mini Meet
This invitational is hosted by Meadow Tennis and Swim Club and is only for swimmers ages 8 and under. This invitational will take place Sunday, July 18th at Meadow. Swimmers will swim in groups according to their age the date of the meet, and they will only swim against swimmers their own age, i.e., 7-year-old girls will be competing only against other 7-year-old girls. However, swimmers not yet 5 years old will compete in the 5 and Under category. Five and 6 year olds compete in the morning, and 7 and 8 year olds start when the younger swimmers are finished, but not before noon.
Because this is an invitational, you will need to sign in to this meet if you want your child to swim in this meet. This meet should be available for sign in on July 2nd. (As with all invitationals we are dependent on the hosting team to provide us the files we need to activate the meet in our system). If the meet is not available for sign in on July 2nd, we will send you a message as soon as it is available. The deadline to sign in to this meet is July 9th.
The Meet Directors would like to thank everyone for doing a great job of communicating to us who your "subs" are for events that you're hiring a substitute. In addition to providing the meet directors the name of your sub, please include the cell or contact number of the individual who is taking your place. We'd really appreciate it!
MSC Bulletin Board
Have you noticed the new MSC Bulletin Board on the fence? Thanks go to the Rhoda family for making the new green bulletin board. Please check the board for award information and other swim team information while your swimmer is in the pool.
Lost and Found
FYI - there is a HUGE lost and found blue plastic tub on the pool deck next to the fin locker. After every meet and practice things are added - shirts, goggles, towels. Please dig through.
