B Meet Results and Weekly Announcements

 

“Swimming is normal for me.  I’m relaxed.  I’m comfortable and I know my surroundings.  It’s my home.” – Michael Phelps

 

Thanks to everyone who contributed to our great meet with Camelot last night!  Meet results are attached to this email and also available on the Documents section of Team Unify.  Fun Fact #1:  Team Unify has the TEAM PICTURE  (Documents) , archived copies of our riveting emails (News) and information about activities and meets (Events).   Fun Fact #2: You can download the TEAM PICTURE yourself, but only after you’re done reading through this whole email.   www.hrahurricanes.org 

 

Will your swimmer be gone this Saturday?  If so, please email [email protected] ASAP.  We must let the coaches know by Wednesday noon which swimmers will not be here, so they are not included in the meet sheet.  Thank you to everyone who has already submitted this information – everybody else, let us know!

 

Reminder about Fun Friday Practice.  All Hurricanes who practice at 7:45 (13-18), 8:45 (9-12) and 9:45 (8ish-es) will combine for a 9:00am Fun Friday Practice.  There will be relays, cheers, prizes and meet sheet announcements!

Saturday Morning A Meet: Hayfield Farms @HRA

  • Parking: We want our visiting team to have plenty of space to park in our lot, so we ask that Hurricane families either 1) walk to the pool, 2) park at Woodburn Elementary and walk to the pool, or 3) park on a street in Holmes Run Acres, taking special care to not block any driveway.
  • Volunteer Slots: Right now, we still need (2) Marshals (arrive at 7:45am), (2) Timers, (5) Set-Up, arrive at 7:00am, (1) Mask Runner, (4) Relay Take-Off Judges, no experience required, and (3) people to help at the Hurricane Café (especially with set-up, starting at 7:30am), and (2) folks to work the grills.  All deck officials should wear navy blue bottoms and white tops (also, bring a water bottle!) This all works easily if everyone does a little to help: HRARA: Hurricanes Volunteer Roster (signupgenius.com)

  • Masking: All people over the age of 2 who are unvaccinated are expected to wear a facemask.  Swimmers in the team area and Clerk of Course should keep their masks on.  Masks should be removed before entering the pool for a swim event and placed in a baggie labelled with your name. 

All masked swimmers are encouraged to take regular "breaks" by distancing themselves from others, removing their mask for fresh air and drinking plenty of fluids.  If they begin to feel overheated, dizzy, or weak, they should keep their mask on and get the attention of a coach immediately.

 

  • Hurricane Café will be open for breakfast!  The menu includes Anita’s Breakfast Burritos, bagels and cream cheese, donuts, coffee, fruit, snacks, candy and ice-cold beverages.  We’ll also fire up the grills for burgers and dogs as we round into lunchtime.  Cash or cards are accepted.

 

Save the Date – Todd Potts IM Carnival.  Wednesday, July 14 at 4pm.  It was on, then off, and now it’s on again.  All swimmers who can swim a “legal” Individual Medley are encouraged to show their stuff at this fun carnival event.  More details to come…
