GOOD FRIDAY PENTATHLON 2011
On behalf of the LAC Board of Directors and Meet Management crew, we would like to personally thank you for your contribution at the Good Friday Pentathlon Swim Meet. This event could not, would not have been a success without the help of the many volunteers who donated their time.
As always, it was great to see the deck and office participation of the Senior Officials, parents, family and friends -- many of whom stepped up for the first time achieving Levels 2, 3 and even Level 4 accreditation. Great job! The success of our swim meets absolutely rely on the constant advancement of officials in these positions. Of course, special thanks go out to the amazing 'behind the scenes' volunteers -- set up / tear down and canteen crews. As always working hard to make sure the meet goes off without a hitch and the officials are well nourished.
Once again, thank you everyone for taking the time during your holiday time to make this a great experience for our swimmers.
Sheri Cappa & Joe Gati, Meet Managers Good Friday Pentathlon 2011
NOTES 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 result in swimmers not being able to complete for the club so please pay on a timely basis. The last statements were sent out well over a month ago and while the majority are paid, there is still a significant number still outstanding.
For the upcoming Hollandia Swim Meet, we will be enforcing the club policy to ensure all travel accounts are paid. Families that have a balance due from the travel statements sent in March who have not paid their account by Wednesday May 4th will not have their swimmers entered in the Hollandia. Payment arrangements will be considered in certain situations.
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.
HOLLANDIA JOB SIGN-UPS
All volunteer positions for the upcoming Hollandia swim meet will be done through the on-line job sign-up system. The sign-ups will be made available in the next couple of days and families will be notified by email. Recent upgrades to the sign-up function on the web-site makes this possible. This is a large swim meet and will provide an opportunity for families to catch up on their session credits if needed.
