Carolina Aquatic Team Carowinds Bus Trip
Carolina Aquatic Team Families,
We are very excited to announce a fun Carolina Aquatic Team bus trip to Carowinds amusement park as our summer team building event.  Here is the plan:
Who:  Carolina Aquatic Team Swimmers
When:  Saturday June 17th
Where:  Carowinds Amusement Park
Deadline:  Friday May 19th at 8:00 PM
How to Register:  Click Here To Register Now
The Plan:  We will meet in the back parking lot behind the pool at the SportsPlex (SportsPlex is allowing us to leave vehicles parked their during our trip) at 11:45 AM on Saturday June 17th.  The bus will leave at 12:15 PMso please be on time, we don’t want to leave anyone at home.  This should put us in the park between 3:00-3:30 PM for an evening of fun away from the pool with teammates.  We hope this allows our summer league swimmers the opportunity to swim their meets that morning, as well as hopefully miss the busiest part of the day in the park.    
Once arriving in the park swimmers will group up with teammates and Parent Chaperones (yes parents we do need some help from you and you can come have fun too) for their afternoon/evening of fun.  The park closes at10:00 PM so the plan is to stay until park close, meeting back at the bus immediately after for departure by 10:30 PM.  To help families back in Durham, the coaches will send out an email as the bus passes through Greensboro to plan for pickup at SportsPlex. 
To make all of this possible we need a minimum of 45 swimmers and parent chaperones signed up.  We are renting a tour bus (this is a trial run for bigger things to come beginning next year) for the day so no one is driving separate.  If we get more than 54 people signed up the numbers may change a little bit, but here they are:
Cost:  Only $75.50 per person
This includes the bus trip down, tip for the bus driver, and admission to the park for the day. 
Being that we are talking about swimmers here, we know everyone’s next question is what about food?  Please pack a lunch that can be eaten on the bus ride down, and snacks for the return trip (this can be left on the bus during the day).  Some spending money is also a good idea for refreshments while in the park.    
The Carolina Aquatic Team coaches are very excited to offer this fun trip to our team, the coaches are ready to go and we hope you are as well.  If you have any questions please let us know.
