As hard as it is to believe, tonight is our final dual meet of the season, at Big Bend Woods. If you have not been there, please give yourself at least 30 minutes given the time of day and the kind of sneaky location. I don't think I have been to a meet there (if I have, those brain cells have expired), so I don't know about parking. I feel certain BBW will offer the same fine array of foods and beverages we do, though I'm just as certain it can't match the friendly service we are accustomed to at our own pool.
Directions are included below. Volunteers please arrive by 4:45 p.m. Warm-ups at 5 and meet at 5:30 p.m.
Our own Blue & White meet will be Wednesday at 5 p.m., with a lot of fun activities for everyone planned after the official part of the meet. If you haven't attended a B&W meet, it really is a good time for our swimmers and families. We will use that time to make posters and decorations that we'll blow away the competition with at conference, rather than have a separate psych part on Thursday, as the original calendar says. We rock on well into the night.
Conference meet is Saturday at Country Surf. The morning session -- 10 years old and under -- will start with warm-ups at 7:30 a.m. and the meet at 8. The afternoon session -- 11 and up -- will start warm-ups at 12 noon, with the meet at 12:30 p.m. It will be a thrill-packed day for everyone, I know. Directions are included and there will be more about logistics as the week goes along. If you have questions about the meet or the venue, please send them and I'll get answers to share with everyone.
I hope we do not have any more changes in availability. If we do, though -- for today or Saturday -- please let me know right away with both a phone call and an email.
I am not including directions for the Blue & White meet.
