Congrats to all the kids & coaches for the great swims from this past weekend!  Also see below a note from Joe Replogle, our Competition Director.
Marlins Families,
We did a terrific job hosting our first long course meet of the season.  It takes an army of parent volunteers to run a swim meet, and all of you certainly stepped up to the challenge.  Thank you for giving your time and talent to our kids!
As we start to prepare for the Tyr Summer Classic in a few weeks, please consider training as computer system operator (office job), head timer (deck job), or data-board operator.  Send me an e-mail if you are interested.
And finally, please remind your swimmers to take care of the Swimmer’s Lounge during competitions.  It looked like a tornado hit a garbage truck in there following the afternoon sessions.
