Weekly Notes for Oct. 31 - November 5

Practices for Oct 31 - Nov 5:  Regular Schedules all week.   Also, No Closed Locker Rooms.

Commitment Deadline for Brookings November Meet is today! (October 30).

Upcoming Social Events:   November 5= Coin Dive  &  Junior-Senior Pancake Breakfast (see events for details).

Coin Dive Info:     Starting tomorrow, coaches will have group labeled buckets on deck for athletes to put spare change in for the  "Coin Dive"  that will  take place during practices on Saturday, November 5th.  Please encourage your athlete(s) to donate as much spare change as possible.   Check under those couch cushions, in junk drawers, under the seats in the car, piggy banks, coin purses, etc.  

During the "Coin Dive",  coaches will throw all of the change collected by that group into the pool and those athletes will have a set amount of time to gather as many coins as possible. Coins will be counted on Monday, November 7th, and the group that dove for the most coins will win a pizza party.  Winning group will be announced at practice.

All money will be donated to Brookings Project Joy,  a nonprofit organization that provides holiday gifts and clothing to low income children in the Brookings area. 

 Let's fill the those coin buckets!  Groups will be paired as follows: Bronze/Silver, Gold/Platinum, and Junior/Senior.
