Weekly Mailer (2010.10.04)

Hello  VJO,

Please read below as there are several new and important announcements in this week's Mailer.

VJO's October 2010 Calendar is now available [online version]. Hard copies will be going out in folders tomorrow.

The June-August "Shark Attack" Newsletter is now available [online version / hi-res PDF]. Hard copies will be going out in folders tomorrow. 

The team will be placing new   Parka Orders this week. Completed order forms are  due no later than 5:30 p.m. on Thursday 7 October to the "Henderson" folder on deck. If you need another order form, they are available on deck ("Team Attire" folder, next to the "Henderson" folder). 

This will be your last chance to order before the start of winter! Please let Team Attire Coordinator Pam Henderson know if you have any questions [[email protected]; 707.557.1223].

VJO will be on a special practice schedule this Friday 8 October--we will have a "Team Practice." Everyone will swim together from 5:30--6:30 p.m. only [The Senior Group will also swim at their regular time, 3:30-5:30 p.m.] Please let me know if you have any questions about the practice schedule.

Marin's  October C/B/A+ Meet (Oct. 9-10) [meet sheet] is this weekend. Please arrive by 7:15 a.m. for warm-ups on both days. Because the campus is under construction, there will be a limited number of parking spots. Therefore, Marin has asked everyone coming to carpool if at all possible. Also, VJO will be responsible for timing in Lane 5 on the girls' end and splitting Lane 6 on the boys' end with Napa on both days.

Save the Date: VJO's Halloween Party will be on Friday 29 October. There will be games, costume contests, and a Penny War with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research!

There are several upcoming   Officials Clinics  for parents who would like to become new Stroke & Turn officials. The dates are: Oct. 9-10 (Marin), Oct. 16-17 (Petaluma), Oct. 23-24 (Santa Rosa), and Nov. 5-7 (Napa). Please contact our Officials Chair Debbi Tucker [[email protected], 707.980.2663] to set-up a clinic or with any questions you may have about what the job entails.  All Current Officials: Please contact her as well, so you can set-up your renewals.
