Happy Birthday Coach Gai (today is his birthday)
This is a big week for us again. We have Jr. and Sr. Palooza’s this week, so we need to get lots of rest and eat well every night. We want to see how all this hard training is going to pay off.

Only junior swimmers will swim on this day. No 11 and over swimmers will practice on this day. We will have dry land practice for 13/14 swimmers though.
Sr. Palooza: Wednesday, October 7th 2:30pm:
Only senior swimmers will swim on this day. No 10 and under swimmers practice this day. You can make up practice on Thursday or Friday if you would like.
Swim-a-thon: October 29th after school
Last week I emailed out the information for this event. Please print out the pledge sheets and start collecting those pledges. Great prizes and food and fun…all for a good cause; Second Chance Bangkok
We will have hard copies at the practices this week for those without printers.
Swimfest Spirt Night: Friday November 13th SAVE THE DATE:
On the eve of Swimfest (and Splash) we have a team spirit night. This event is for our whole team and has all ages having fun and getting excited about the meet together. This year we are going to try something different. We are going to have our first ever Panther Swim Team Movie Night! Right after school we have book all of the MPB’s and will be showing swim movie “Touch The Wall”. Swimmers will be sitting together in multi-age groups and eating healthy fun snacks. Bring your pillows and PJs if you want, let’s make it a big party!
