Team Potluck/Annual Meeting on Sept 12 & Changes in Dues

Montrose Marlins

Hi Marlins Families,

Our fall season is fast approaching!  Practices start the week of September 16th.  

Reminder - Join us for our Montrose Marlins Team Potluck/Annual Meeting

Date: Thursday, September 12 @ 5:45 - 7:45 pm

Location: Riverbottom Park Gazebo

The event is an opportunity to meet new and returning Marlins families, spend time together, get updates on our up-coming fall season and vote for a new Board of Directors.

Please bring an appetizer, fresh fruits/veggies or dessert to share. (If your last name falls between A-M, bring an appetizer; if your last name falls between N-Z, bring fruit or a dessert).  Drinks, plates, utensils, etc. will be provided.

Change in Monthly Dues

To remain financially solvent as a club, the board has made the decision to raise dues $10/month.  The Marlins have always been (and continue to be) committed to keeping our dues affordable.  Because of this, we haven’t raised them in over 3 years. However, the cost of doing business has increased.  We believe that this increase in dues will allow us to achieve our goals as a club.  Our dues continue to be lower than other western Colorado year-round swim teams.

You are also going to get more for your money!  Your dues will cover the cost of three developmental swim meets this fall.  This season, we are going to host three Wednesday evening, 2-hour, home swim meets.  These meets will provide our swimmers the opportunity to compete (without the hassle of driving to other towns), introduce new parents to how swim meets run, and allow our coaches to assess your child’s progress on a more regular basis – which is key to helping them improve and advance.  Tentative dates for the meets are: Oct 2, Oct 23 and Nov 13 @ 5:30-7:30 pm.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact a board member or coach.

Best Wishes,

Pam Motley, Marlin Board Member
