It is great to see all the swimmers back in the water and working towards their goals for the last 8 weeks of the season.
This email is to determine interest for the final away swim meet of the season. The Kamloops TRU Wolfpack Invitational is being held 6-9 June in Kamloops. The team travel coordinator, Dave Shears, will be chaperoning has already begun making arrangements for travel, food and accomodations. Coaches Kirsty, Frankie and Carol will be attending.
This is always a well attended meet as it is one of the few meets where all levels of swimmers can compete together as a team. It is suitable for Belugas and above. This is a long-course event (50 metre pool) where there are no qualifying times required for 50 and 100 metre events. 10 and Unders have no finals and will therefore not be required to attend the afternoon sessions. Please notice that there are qualifying times for the 200 metre and above events. If you have any questions as to the suitability of this meet for your swimmer please feel free to consult Coach Carol. The meet package is linked on our home page.
I wouold like to solidify numbers NLT 16 April in order to get the best possible rates for flights to Kamloops. Please contact me directly to confirm your interest. Without firm numbers it is difficult to narrow the price. I generally recommend budgeting $1000 per child.Team travel will depart Thursday and return Monday. Parents accompanying 10 and Unders are welcome to join in on airline deals. We are certain of hotel and food, the balancing issue is always flights and rental vehicles. For that reason we need firm numbers to negotiate the best deal. Please do NOT hesitate to call, text, email, or come see me on deck to seek clarification. Thanks in advance for your timely responses.
