Weekly Mailer (2011.01.21)

Hello VJO,

I'd like to start by thanking all of swimmers and families who attended Zone III Winter Champs last weekend in Santa Rosa. I'd also like to especially thank those parents who volunteered, at the Colorado desk, officiating, and timing. Our parents are the best!

Congratulations to Brandon Miguel, who set a new team record in the 13-14 Boys 200 Fly (SCY) last weekend. His time of 2:12.15 broke a 9 year-old record!!

The next time you visit the team's website, you'll notice that the layout has been updated to a new look. We've also updated the Events Page with all our upcoming meets and team functions. Please let me know if you have any questions about any of them. Social events have been opened for online R.S.V.P.s.

Important: The next meet Vallejo Aquatics will be hosting, on February 11-13, will be here before you know it! If you have not yet done so, please enter your swimmer(s) online A.S.A.P. [see below]This is "team meet," and all swimmers and their families are asked and expected to enter and volunteer throughout the weekend. Swim meets are a vital fundraiser for our team, and we can't host successful ones with your help! A job sign-up list will be available at the pool next week.

A quick reminder: Ice Skating R.S.V.P. forms, and money, are due by Wednesday 26 January 2011 to the "Powell / Membership" form on-deck. Please let me know if you have any questions, or check out the event page below.

Napa Valley's C/B/A+ [online entries] is one of two team meets in February, the other being VJO's own C/B/A+ on Feb. 11-13. The meet is still open for sign-ups on Saturday and Sunday, so if you have not yet entered please do so. Again, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask a member of the Coaching Staff.
