No one is out a penny with this great fundraising idea. You simply purchase pre paid cards for your groceries/gas/clothing/entertainment through LAC via the FundScrip program! It’s easy, fast, and we are all going to spend this money anyway!

NOTE FROM THE TREASURER
Travel Accounts Statements
A reminder that travel accounts are payable upon receipt of your statement. As per club policy, amounts not paid with 30 days of receipt of the travel statement can result in swimmers not being able to complete for the club so please pay on a timely basis. As always, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the postings on your account. For any questions requiring more than a simple e-mail, please see me at the pool or e-mail me so we can make arrangements to speak over the phone.
There are more families than I would expect that still have an outstanding balance. Families failing to pay their travel account on a timely basis will start being subject to late fees and possibly having to prepay meet entry fees in the future if the situation continues.
We will be running a Timer's Clinic at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre on Friday, April 15/11. This clinic will be held in the Lower Level meeting room from 5:30 - 7:00pm. This is a great opportunity for parents to get started with on deck officiating. We look forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Smith at email@example.com
