Team End of the Year Banquet
The Sea Dragons banquet planning is underway. We will have brunch at Theisman’s Restaurant April 23rd, 11-1:30.

More details to follow.
We are organizing a casual event for parents to get together and socialize. The plan is to do it on a Friday evening when the YMCA has their parent night out program. The parent night out program is $5/child for members, and the children can swim, do an activity and have pizza. Adults would meet at Lena’s (or another nearby spot) for happy hour and pizza. The two options for dates are:
March 11 or March 25
Let us know if you are interested, and if so, which date works best for you.
Age Group Parties
There has also been talk of having age group parties so the kids can have fun together while not swimming a mile. If you are interested in this or, better yet, interested in setting something up for an age group, please let me know.
Other team needs :
We are looking for someone who can spend a few hours at the YMCA to assist with data entry related to meet entries and swimmer information. Please let us know if you would be willing to assist.
