Tuesday Mailer (2011.02.15)

Hello VJO,

We'd like to give a huge "Thank You" to all the swimmers and their parents who helped make our meet last weekend such a success. It was great seeing a lot of new and returning faces! Our next home meet will be on the weekend of May 6-8, it will be long course, and it will be huge!
