State Goody Bags

Stacie Bailey

Hello Cuda Parents,

The Colorado Short Course State Meets will be here before we know it!  The Senior State Meet will be held in Fort Collins during the weekend of February 21st.  Our team is hosting 14 and Under State Meet at the VMAC the weekend of February 28th. Many of you will sign up to volunteer by timing or taking on another job to ensure the meets run smoothly, and that is very much needed and appreciated.  Another way you can help involves assisting with a tradition of recognizing our state athletes through a fun project.  Once again, we will be putting together goody bags for our athletes who are competing at these championship meets.  We will have a better idea of how many athletes will be competing in this meet once the date gets a bit closer, but in the past, it has typically been around 70 athletes. This will be our 5th time around with this project, and we are ready to roll!   By the way, we are missing about 25 state bags from the last distribution.  If you have one at home, can you please send it to the pool with your swimmer ASAP?  Thank you!

The collection and distribution of these goodies is completely a voluntary effort put on by the parents and is not sponsored by funds from the club.  Jennifer Raskay is heading up this project again and would happily welcome your contributions of snacks, drinks, or other small items to make our athletes feel proud and fueled for success. Some of the great items included in the past were granola bars, fruit snacks, energy chews, Goldfish crackers, trail mix, Swedish fish, small plastic toy fish, small stuffed animal fish, coupon for entry to PDRC, juice boxes, chocolate milk, Gatorade, and more! Donations will be accepted starting NOW until the deadline, which will be February 18th in order to have the bags ready for distribution prior to the meet.

If you would like to sign up to donate an item, please click on the link below.  Items can be dropped off at the Raskay front porch (14020 Park Cove Drive in Broomfield, specifically McKay Landing), or arrangements can be made to meet at VMAC (or give items to Kyle in Elite group or Julia in Black group).  If you make a delivery, please text Jennifer (303-886-5831 or [email protected])  to let her know.  Items can be left anywhere anytime on the secure front porch, so please just leave them there when it is convenient for you.
