PSSL Conference and Team Picnic/Awards

posted Jun 28, 2012, 12:14 PM by RSST Swim Team
I would first like to say what a FANTASTIC season it has been thanks to all the athletes, parents, coaches and leaders.  Together we have made it unforgettable!  I also want to congratulate our conference team and wish them the best of luck on Saturday.  No matter what happens, I am incredibly proud of this team and know they will do their absolute best!
Stacy and I will find out more tonight, but here is what I know so far....
Swimmers need to be at Crawforsville Aquatic Center at the High School and ready to warm up at 7:45 am.  All teams have been given 30 minutes. 
Pre lims begin at 9:00 am.  All individual events will take place in the pre lims.  No relays in the am.
Finals will begin 1 hour after pre lims are complete but no earlier than 1:00 pm.  I expect finals to last appx 4 hours.
T shirts will be handed out Saturday morning.  Come find me! 
I have been told that there will be no a/c in the gym where the kids will be sitting.  You can bring fans if you would like and we will try to plug in as many as we can.  You can bring chairs also. 
Concessions will be available and Action Accents will be there selling suits and swim gear.
I have not received the timer schedule yet, but we will need to supply timers for several shifts throughout the day.  I will also need a helper for the 8 and unders and 9 and 10's.  I would also like to have several parents oversee our group in the gym.  If you can volunteer for any of this, please contact me asap.  Seating is upstairs for spectators. 
The pool is located in the high school at One Athenian Drive in Crawfordsville.  If  you need directions, let me know.  It takes appx 1:45 to 2 hours to get there.  Very happy we have a little later warm up time!
PICNIC:  Brookside Park/Large shelter near softball field/Pool
Our team picnic and awards will be held on Monday, July 2nd starting at 5:30pm with a potluck carrry in dinner.  Last names beginning with A thru G, please bring a main/meat dish; H thru O, a casserole; and P thru Z, a dessert.  Thank you!  Also, please bring table service and drinks for your family.  We will bring what is left from the concession stand as well.  I know there are some drinks, chips and candy.  Feel free to help yourself! 
Following dinner at 6:30, the pool will be open and free to swimmers and families.  During that time, we will hold the business part of our evening and discuss the season and officers for the next year in the shelter.  Swimming will end at 7:15 and then we will hand out awards.  We should finish up about 8pm. 
I will have the ribbon box and lost and found at the picnic.  Please make sure  you look through and make sure nothing is left behind. 
Again, thank you all SO MUCH for this awesome season.  I can't believe it is almost over already!
