Weekly Mailer (2010.08.31)

Hello VJO!, 

Welcome to this week's informational mailer. Please read below for all VJO related news.

The team will have no practice, for all groups, on Monday 6 September in observance of Labor Day. Enjoy your holiday, and we'll see everyone again on Tuesday at regular practice times.

VJO's September 2010 Calendar is now available for download online [full screen / PDF]. You can also view it on our website under the "Calendar" tab. Hard copies will be available in folders on Wednesday.

Important: Napa Valley's November C/B/A+ Meet (Nov. 5-7) isstill available for sign-up [online entries / meet sheet].  Please sign-up if you have not done so already. This will be the only C/B/A+ meet for November. This is "team meet", and as such, all swimmers are asked and expected to enter and compete. (They are also great team-building activities and a lot of fun!!) Please let your Coach knows if you have any questions.

Another reminders that swimmers should bring at least one water bottle/sports beverage to practice, in addition to drinking copious amounts of water throughout the day and after practice. This is a healthy habit to have!

Save the Date: Our annual Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday 25 September. The event will start at 5:00 p.m., dress will be semi-formal/business casual (i.e. not shorts or jeans), and will most likely be held at SPSV. Details to follow soon.

Important: Cunningham is set to have a Pool Closure the week starting Monday 20 September. The pool must be upgraded to comply with a new state law. Please be aware that the dates of the closure may change, as G.V.R.D. and their contractor deem necessary. We are already in the process of finding other places to swim, please stay tuned for more information. We will e-mail the team as soon as we have confirmation--please check the website for up-to-date information or contact me (info below).
