TPC Weekly Update 11/4

Posted by North Bay Aquatics at Nov 4, 2019 10:28AM PST

Hello

PRACTICE — As usual this week.

JUNIOR OLYMPICS (12/6-8) sign up online if you qualify. There are relays! I will contact eligible swimmers to field as many as we can!

NAPA RECAP some blazing swims from the Tuna in beautiful NAPA! We had quite a few standout swims from all levels of our team including a couple of new Record Board swims for Brooks Canori (6) in the 25 Back and 25 Fly. The 6-Under records have been unchanged for over 15 years — but now we are literally writing history. Way to go Brooks!

COOKIE PARTY 12/18 more info to follow…

WINTER/SPRING/SUMMER MEET SCHEDULE in its final phase of organization—should be out later this week! (everything from Jan. to RESL’s at the end of July!)

TPC NON-MEMBER POLICY Please adhere to the club guidelines to keep our program healthy and in good stead with the TPC membership! You agreed to the policies when registering your swimmer—they are listed at the bottom of this email as well!

NBA BASEBALL CAPS? Yes! Separate gear email out soon!
