Weekly Mailer (2010.09.14)

Hello VJO!, 

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

This Wednesday 15 September, VJO will be hosting its first Parent Education Night (P.E.N.) of the 2010-2011 swim season [ event page & R.S.V.P.]. We ask that each family send at least one parent, as we will be discussing important dates for the upcoming year, using the team's new website, and voting on Board Members for the 2010-2011 Season. The presentation will start at 6:30 p.m. in Portable #707, located right next to the pool, and will go no later than 7:30 p.m. There will be child care available for the duration in the adjacent portable. The practice schedule is below:

  • Seniors -- 3:30-5:00 p.m.
  • Age Group -- 5:15-6:15 p.m.
  • Makos (Lesley) -- 5:15-6:15 p.m.
  • Hammerheads (Tuffy) -- 5:15-6:15 p.m.

Important: Cunningham will have a Pool Closure next week, starting Monday 20 September. The pool must be upgraded to comply with a new state law. Our team will be practicing at James Lemos Pool in Benicia for those five days. The practice schedule is below; click here to view the Event Page on our website with full information.

  • Seniors -- 3:30-5:30 p.m.
