If you are on the list of those attending this meet, you must make sure you get the Blue form from the Athletic Office to be signed by your teachers and Coach Launi.  You also will need to arrange with your teacher to reschedule your 7th period exam. Big 8 Swimmers need to be at the athletic entrance promptly at 11:10 AM on Friday and will need to bring a packed lunch to eat on the way to Canton and money in case they have to purchase dinner following the meet.  Parents: swimmers will contact you as they get close to Dayton so you can arrive promptly to pick them up at CHS following the meet (this is usually pretty late).
