Weekly Update 9.20 - 9.26

Hi, Dolphins Families!


Socially-Distanced Trunk-Or-Treat Fundraiser-- Saturday, October 31st

On Halloween-- Saturday, October 31st-- we will have a Socially-Distanced Trunk-or-Treat fundraiser, facilitated by the Parent’s Association. This will occur in the parking lot of the West Side YMCA. Trunk decoration will be from 3:30pm - 4:00pm and the Trunk-or-Treating will begin at 4:00pm. Rain date is 11/1.


We will be asking $10 per car, one car per Dolphins family. Non-Dolphins family and friends are welcome to carpool and join us, but cannot purchase a parking spot. Parking spots will be numbered and set an appropriate distance apart. Masks are required at all times and social distancing will be enforced. 


In order to make this as safe as possible, we will have families move trunk to trunk every 2 or so minutes. We ask that families bring a large bag of candy. Candy should be dropped in bags, rather than children reaching into bowls or bags themselves. You’re welcome to make individual bags of candy for distribution. We will be giving out prizes for Best Costume and Best Trunk!


I will send a link to register for the event on Daxko next week. No cash, please.  Please see the attached flyer for details! Can’t wait to have a spooktacular event and fundraise for our team. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Yankee Cluster Tentative Meet Schedule

The League has determined a tentative meet schedule for the season. In our plan, we would have at least one meet a month starting in October, with the possible exception of December (holiday gathering and travel being a concern at that time). This would include some sort of Yankee Cluster Championship in March. 


I do not have info on who we’ll be facing or at what pool, but I can say the dates tentatively planned for are:

  • October 24/25

  • November 21/22

  • December ?

  • January 9/10 

  • February 20/21

  • March TBD


Even though the info is incomplete, I want families (and swimmers!) to keep this on their radar. I’m hopeful to have more concrete info next week.


Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race-- Sunday, October 4th

The Fishbein/YMCA Community Road Race is a little over a week away and the deadline to register is October 1st! We have both an in-person 5K and virtual 5K/10K options. The in-person 5K has a limit of 500 runners. More info on the precautions being taken can be found HERE. You can register HERE.


While the road race normally has a big Dolphins turn-out, I understand the apprehension to participate in the in-person race. However, your support by joining us virutally would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks! Have a great rest of your week.
