Weekly Mailer (2011.06.28)

Hello VJO,

Welcome to this week's Mailer.Thanks to everyone who came to our Pool Party & Alumni Reunion! We had a great time splashing around the pool, and the first annual BBQ contest was a hit.

A special reminder to all Hammerheads (Tuffy): There will be one practice only, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., this Friday 1 July 2011.

A special reminder to the Age Group and Senior Group: Our morning bike ride will be this Friday 1 July, starting at 6:30 at the tennis courts in Glen Cove. We will also have regular afternoon practice later in the day. All parents are welcome!

VJO will be marching in this year's 4th of July Parade. More details will be available soon, but the parade begins at 12:00 p.m. We will be meeting around 11:00 a.m.--everyone wears their turqoise team shirts!! Don't forget sunscreen, water, snacks, and the eat a large breakfast/brunch before we begin.

Important: 2011 R.E.A.L. Championships are now available for entries! This meet will use team entries only--online entries will not be available. You can download the meet sheet on the [Meet Event Page]; hard copies will go out in folders tomorrow. Completed entries, along with a check to "VJO" or exact change, are due no later than Friday 22 July 2011 to Coach Aaron Jon's folder on-deck.

Don't forget to read these two important letters [click here] from Team President Brian Rodinsky. VJO is in need of Board Members for the 2011-2012 swim season. As a parent-run team, we can't operate at our highest level, and provide our kids with the best possible experience, without your help!

Remember the Swim-a-thon!! It will be here soon--July 19!

Please let Coach Aaron Jon or a Board Member know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your time...and Go SHARKS!!
