Weekly Mailer

Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,

Great job at our meet this weekend swimmers!  We had many new time standards achieved including some first time ever JO qualifying times. Unfortunately we do not yet have the results as there were some computer problems during the meet.  Another email will be sent out as soon as we receive the final results.
Senior and Age Groupers:We would like to thank the Senior and Age Group for helping out and buddying up with our beginner and younger swimmers.  You did a terrific job helping out the younger ones and we thank you for all your help. We would also like to give a big thank you to those swimmers that were volunteering.
Parents:  Thank you for all your help and support putting on the meet this weekend.  Parent volunteers are what make our VJO meets possible.
