Get excited because our first meet is Monday. This is critical information and instructions about the meet:

1. You should be at the Shamrock pool no later than 5:00 to make sure you have your name and races written on your arm and shoulder and are ready for warm ups!

2. You need to be on the pool deck lined up in cap and goggles ready to swim warm ups at 5:25.

3. Warm ups will be at 5:30. That means in the pool and swimming laps!!!!!

4. Parent Volunteers should find Kim Austin to go over their assignments while the kids are doing warm ups. She will be at the Team tent. Kim’s list of parent volunteers will go out shortly.

Parents – You have a list of things to bring to the meet that was included in the welcome packet. You may also want to bring a shade tent because it will be hot. Feel free to come earlier than 5:00 if you feel that you want some time to eat dinner and relax.

Cara Marullo posted the link to the google document used for orders on the Reynolds Rapids Facebook page. I will forward an email link to you today as well. You must place your order by Sunday at 12:00. Feel free to pack your own snacks and dinner if you would rather!
