Greetings Riptide,

There is a whole lot going on these days and I did not get a chance to blog this week until today 🙁 Let me give you the low-down… Last weekend the ORCA Red White meet got a downpour on Sunday! Everybody got wet in the pool or out. It can be very difficult to swim well at a meet with such drastic weather, but we ended up okay and as a team we turned in a good performance with many swimmers achieving Blue Standards in new events. Great job everyone who attended! Also, anyone get a picture of Adam and his plastic bag shoes?? I would love to post that on our site!

This week during practice we have many things happening, first of all we have our parent meetings tonight on the deck. Please do your best to attend parents, there is a lot of information we need to share with you. We are also now following the new parking policies… I want to ask you guys to be extra careful walking up the driveway from the lower parking lot to the pool. There are a lot of cars out there and we need you to stay safe. Walk carefully, keep your eyes and ears open, and don’t run in the parking lot or on the pool deck.

Next up, the weekend will bring us our next long course meet of the season just up the road at Goldenwest College Pool. I put in a request for warm weather, so if it is sunny you can thank me 🙂 Remember, if you are attending the meet you will be getting out of practice early on Friday.

Go Riptide!
