TPC Weekly Update 9/9
PRACTICE — Normal this week, EXCEPT this Friday we will hold an early season time trial (see below).
TIME TRIAL — This Friday! No need to sign-up, just show up and race. Warm-ups from 3:30-4:05. Races begin around 4:10 and the whole thing usually takes about 1 hour. Swimmers have the opportunity to swim a 50 or 25 of each stroke and earn some ribbons! It’s a good, early season base-line meet, and gives me times for younger swimmers to enter the Spooky Plunge (the highlight meet of the Fall for the novice crew!). We will need some timers, so come lend a hand! There are rumors of ice cream sandwiches…
GEAR — We will have a representative from Making Waves on deck next Thursday (9/19). More details out soon! (suits and parkas and sweatshirts, oh my…)
