Hello all Panthers,
Last week we only got 50% of our swimmers racing, mother nature was not kind to the Senior swimmers on Tuesday, but was great for the Junior’s on Wednesday. Tomorrow we will redo the Sr. Palooza races and the program was sent out this morning to those signed up.
We are nearing the October break and the half way of our first semester…There are two big events that we need everyone to either commit to attending or decline on the website.
So please go on the website and commit either way to the Swimfest Meet and the Thanyapura Winter Camp. There is a lot of planning that goes into both of these events and we need to know swimmer numbers very early on. If you can’t go, simply decline and we know where everyone is at.
Let me just say that the Winter Camp in Phuket is a great family start to the holiday. Last year everyone that went had a great time both in and out of training. It was the highlight of last year for many people. Right now we half of what we need to make this work!
Panther Swim-a-thon (Tuesday October 17th) (Please sign up so we know how much food to prepare) small group of volunteers needed for this event, you can sign up on website:
We are now just one week away from our annual fund raiser, known to all as our Panther Swim-a-Thon. Every year we raise funds for a local charity in need. This year we are funding a Habitat for Humanity build right here in Bangkok.
This project is located in Ayutthaya and is a local school that is trying to build a sustainable mushroom farm.
Swim Schedule (PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LAP COUNTERS):
10 and under swimmers: 2:35-3:35
11 and over swimmers: 3:35-5:00
Over the next two weeks, we would ask that our team reach out to our community, and beyond, for charitable donations. These pledges can be on a flat rate or per lap basis. Aside from the joy of helping those less fortunate than ourselves, we will have small prizes for the top pledge earners and the top distance swimmers in each age group.
There will be delicious food to help celebrate our swimmers accomplishments, so let's make sure we all mark this down on our calendar and help raise some baht for a good cause.
Palooza Time trials make up for Seniors
11 and over (senior will take place on October 9th)
