-We do have volunteer spots we are still needing to be filled for this week’s meets.  We need several positions filled for Tuesday’s away meet, and a Grillmaster position needed for the home meet on Thursday.  In the past, there was a volunteer requirement of a particular number of home/away meets for the season.  This did not always work, and since our volunteer coordinator has taken on the task, it has been an “all hands on deck” approach.  We certainly understand that there are circumstances that may prevent volunteering…  But our team this year is the biggest it has been in recent years, and it can be disheartening to have such difficulty filling needed positions.  We appreciate and value our volunteers, and do tend to see the same names over and over (thank you!!!!).  If you have not volunteered before, do not be intimidated by the positions.  They are easily learned as you go, and there is a description of each next to the signup.  The available jobs for this week can be found on our “events” tab on the website: under the “job signup” link for each meet.
-We do have a limited supply of extra red CHST spiritwear t-shirts available for sale!  The shirts are $20/shirt, and will be available at the MW evening practices and Thursday’s home meet this week.  Cash or check accepted.
-The Cardinal Hill Swim Team will participate in the Beavercreek 4th of July parade!  We will receive the specific line up 3 days prior.  The parade is at 6, and we will communicate specific line up times as we receive them.  Swimmers walk along Dayton-Xenia Road, starting at Meadow Bridge and ending at the high school.  Swimmers wear their team shirts and pass out drinking water to parade attendees.
Reminder: Tonight is the last night for Champs shirts available for presale on this link:
The preorder will close at midnight on Sunday, June 26th.  The shirts are $8 plus tax, and will be bagged and waiting for pickup the morning of championships on July 9th.  You can also send your swimmer a shoutout in the SOSL Championship Program using the link below:
Go Cardinals!
