Hello to all Panther Swimmers,
Thanks to all swimmers that participated in our first ever Pandemic swim meets. The Seniors got “Lightninged Out” on the first attempt, but then everyone got in the water on the second attempt.
Our next time trials will be in October, so we look forward to doing this all again.
Thanks also to the parents that met up with me online and participated in our information zoom welcome meeting. That video was emailed out after the meeting so everyone can take a look on their own time table.
Change to our annual fundraiser: Panther Swim-a-thon…SWIM TO PHUKET! October 12th and 14th.
With our host country facing a terrible hit to its financial wellbeing, we think that our annual fundraising should be even more important to our swim community. But because of our Covid restrictions we cannot have the traditional Swim-a-thon of years past. We will still raise funds for distance swum, but this year we are doing it as a team and over two practices. It is the team goal of having our squads swim their way to PHUKET! 844 km in two days to be exact. That is an average of about 3-4 KM per swimmer.
Please see attached pledge sheet and information about our team charities.
Team Caps and Shirts handed out this week at practice (Swim Suits for sale):
All this week your coaches will be handing out the team caps and team shirts. These are part of your fees and are at no cost to you. If you wish to have a team swim suit, they can purchase them also this week for 1000 baht (this is at cost).
Personal Best Awards handed out this week:
Our coaches will be looking at swimmers’ times from last week’s Kickoff meets and calculating which swimmers took off the most time from their best times of the past. We will post photos of the top 3 swimmers in each age category. Look for separate email later this week and on the PB Board at the 50m pool.
