It has been a hard week, with the news that the Rec will not even review letting us back in the water until January 1, 2021. Your Swim Team Board is investigating all leads on pool space. Facilities that have previously told us no to rental are being reexamined. We are not alone in this. Clubs that were open in St Louis and Indianapolis are being told that they will have no access to indoor pools. Stay strong. Carbondale HS announced this morning that they will start the year with Remote only classes.Many restaurants in the area are re-closing. We are better off than some clubs. We have the lake. We have not been told, we can not use campus lake trail. And of course we have our Zoom workouts.
Please keep your kids involved. Bring them to the lake. Make sure they get on our Zooms (attendance has been very low lately). If you can get them to a pool ask me or Eileen for a workout.
As an organization we have been operating without a revenue stream since March. If you can donate, donate. If you have a credit on your account, consider donating it to the team. If you have a balance on your account, please use this time to get caught up. You can bring a check to the lake, mail it to: Saluki Swim Club, PO Box 3293, Carbondale, IL 62902. You can can click on the lane line banner on our website and give by credit card.
See you at the lake.
