Opening Day is fast approaching and we are looking forward to it being the BEST one in the club's history!!! The theme of the day will be an Olympic Carnival with tons of fun for the whole family. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on this fantastic event.
We are still in need of cakes/baked goods for the cake walk. Please contact Cristi Willis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-948-2334 if you are able to help!
Festivities on the 12th will kick off with our traditional opening day parade at 11:30am at the corner of 9th and 293rd. We are thrilled to have Federal Way's Mayor, Skip Priest, Grand Marshall the parade for us this year along with Federal Way City Councilwoman, Linda Kochmar! Don't forget to have the kids dress up as their favorite Olympian or in the colors of the countries they support!
Festivities at the pool will begin at 12pm sharp. We will have information booths for membership, swim team, water polo, day camp, spirit wear, swimsuit fittings and more. There will also be a swim team meeting for anyone interested in competing on the team this year (or for those who just want to learn more about it). Parents and kids are both encouraged to attend.
The Games will begin with everything from water balloon relays, greased watermelon races, a bean bag toss for the younger kids, and the opportunity to win YUMMY cakes at the cake walk!! (Rumor has it there may even be cake ball truffles!!!) We will be selling tickets at the gate for these fun games!
The highlight of our carnival is sure to be the DUNK TANK!! Not only will you have the opportunity to dunk each of our coaches and managers, but will also have the opportunity to bid to place anyone you want in "dunk tank jail." They will then have to match your bid to “get out of jail” or you will get to try and dunk them!!!!! Be sure to bring your checkbook so that you can participate in this unforgettable event!!
The Olympic Carnival is open to the public from 12-3pm, so please invite your friends and neighbors to come out and check out what our amazing club has to offer. With all the fun events and information shared at this event, it will be the PERFECT day to introduce potential new members to our pool.
Last, but not least..........we will wrap up the festivities with a member barbeque at 6pm. It is always a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make a few new ones! Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided by the club. Please bring a salad, side dish or dessert to share.
It’s been a long, cold winter… Let's get this summer off to a GREAT start!
