Housekeeping and Don't Forget the Pool Party and the 4th of July Parade!

Jul 1, 2019

You know the saying, "It's not over until...the kids walk in the parade"...isn't that the saying?  It's our saying this season anyway!  Thank you to everyone who came out last night to enjoy the end of season celebration!  But, we're not done yet...please read on for some end of season events and details...

Still Need RSVP's for the July 3rd "Don't Want to Miss" Pool Party

RSVP by July 1st--(on this Sign Up Genius)... We'll provide the main attraction, but need all party goers to bring a supporting dish (it's o.k. if it outshines the main--go ahead, go all out)!  Oh, and bringing something is pretty much required.  What would your mother say if you showed up to a potluck without bringing something to share?  And what if there wasn't enough food?!  Gasp!

Pool Party play is for all kids (adults only if accompanying a younger sibling).  Tons of float toys, games and free play, no lane lines, and the infamous Coaches Coin Dive!!  Over $600 in coin to be scavenged by our well trained swimmers and divers.  Don't forget a good sized sock to store your scavenged booty haul--and of course goggles!   

Pool play fun goes from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, and then we'll eat!  Please RSVP for the potluck. 

Still Room to Get Involved in the 4th of July Parade

Winners of the Corte Madera/Larkspur parade 3 years in a row, the community is now depending on us!!  They can't wait to see what we'll do this year!  We've had dancers, tie-dyed t-shirts, and the best looking floats you could imagine, but more than that, we have TEAM SPIRIT and a TON of FUN!  This year our float will top all previous years as we amp up our patriotic presence to meet the "Stars and Stripes" parade theme!  Here's the sign up genius with all the details.   It's all fun and its all Tidalwaves (plus its practically a requirement of youth)!!  

Award Pickup for Anyone Not at Awards Banquet

Just a reminder, this year, any trophies, gifts, ribbons, and waterdog shirts not picked up at last night's Awards Banquet will be available for pick up at Sonya DeForrest's house (use the member search to find her address), from July 22nd - August 5th.  If you need to arrange a different pickup time you can try e-mailing Sonya at  All trophies not claimed will be returned to Crown Trophy for re-purposing.  We did not order enough team gifts for everyone this season.  They will be given out until they are gone.  Any ribbons not picked up will be thrown away.
