Hello VJO,

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) A.S.A.P. with paper entries, due no later than Thursday 3 February. 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 is now available at the pool next week.

VJO's February 2011 Calendar is now available for download [online / PDF]. Hard copies will be available in folders starting tomorrow, Tuesday 1 February. Please make sure you read it as there are serveral days this month with special practice schedules or no practice due to holidays/meets. 

Thanks to all our families who went Ice Skating last weekend! Thank goodness we're better in liquid water than on solid!! Check out a Flickr photo set, courtest of John Yee. 

2011 Pacific Swimming Guides are now available for pick-up in your folders.

Team Movie Night will be on Saturday 19 February, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Location is TBD. Please R.S.V.P. on the team's site.
