Thank You Volunteers!
Thank you to all of our wonderful parents who volunteered to help us run this weekends meet! We had many parents and older swimmers who worked multiple shifts to help make this meet run well.
Thanks so much to the following people who went over and above this past weekend: Jennie Patterson for her many hours coordinating the volunteers (she does an amazing job); our hospitality crew, including Carrie Acuna (lead) and Debbie Conti who continue to out do themselves with the hospitality room; Glenda Fries and Cheryl Chaney who lead the snack cart; and the efficient computer/databoard table team lead by the Cassidy's; Hope Cramer and her crew for the great job in awards; and Daniel Willbrand for all of his hard work on the Heat Sheets.
Thanks also to our officials, many of whom worked multiple sessions especially meet referees Terry Anchrum, Rich Decker and Joe Waller and everyone else who helped time, announce, work concessions, help set up the deck, run, work on deck, meet setup, meet cleanup and locker room/commons patrol. The list of amazing volunteers goes on and on--sorry if we left your name off this incomplete list. We are fortunate to have so many great people!
