B)  Sign up Events

1)   Sign up by Sunday, April 8th  Splash Club Silicone Swim Cap Spring Order on our website – PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR SWIMMER.   I KNOW OF SEVERAL INSTANCES WHERE A PARENT BELIEVES THAT THEIR SWIMMER HAS PLENTY OF CAPS AND THE SWIMMER DIDN’T TELL THEIR PARENT THAT MOST OF THEM WERE RIPPED OR LOST!     I will place the order on Tuesday, April 10.    Manufacturing costs have gone up.   If we can get 100 or more caps ordered, we will get a price break.   

All caps will have the Shield and Splash Club on them.   If you would like to order a cap with no name, you may order one or many at a cost of $10 each.     If you would like to order caps with your name on them (see next paragraph for details). you must order 2 or more caps to have that printing on them.   Caps with names on them are $12.50 each.       In the box above your sign up location on our website, please state the number of caps you want.    If ordering name caps, you must order at least 2 or many more caps.   With the name caps, please write down what you would like to say on the caps.    Harlow, or B. Harlow, or Ben Harlow.    No first name only or nicknames only may be used.  If you are ordering no names, you may order as few or as many as you would like.

Please sign up as soon as possible so you don't forget!    If you are wearing a swim cap at all in a meet, it needs to be a Splash Club cap.   You need several caps, in case one of them breaks.  Thanks for your attention to this order!
