LC Party, SC Registration and Recycled Swim Stuff Sale

Hopefully, you have already marked your calendar for the Long Course end of the season PARTY and Registration for Short Course event.  Please join us at Pilgrim Village on Friday, August 14th between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to share in our potluck dinner and beach fun (beach volleyball, sand castles, silly relay races, swingsets, food, and fun!!!).  We will have a 2009-2010 Short Course registration table as well as a "recycled swim stuff sale" (see details below).   Please R.S.V.P. by Monday, August 10th to Kristin at 330.562.3128 to let us know if you’ll bring a side dish or dessert.  We will supply drinks, paper products and dogs. 

Directions:  Pilgrim Village Beach is located just past 17900 Alden Road.  Enter the neighborhood on Pilgrim Ave - this is the main entrance off Rt. 306 in Bainbridge.  When Pilgrim Ave ends, turn right onto Alden Road and the beach will be ahead on your left.  Park along the left side of the road, if possible.


So - what is a "recycled swim stuff sale", you ask?  It’s a mini-fundraiser to help defray the cost of the picnic and the Champs T-Shirts.  Do you have suits, fins, zoomers, kickboards, etc that are too small and collecting dust?  Does your child need a new suit/fins/zoomers because they have outgrown them?  Do you cringe when you think you’ll have to pay full price for these items again?  We’re organizing a ’trade-up event’ for a fraction of the cost of new!  We will be collecting anything swim-related that you no longer use in order to re-sell it.  And if you label it with your name and the asking price, you will get 80% of the profit! The remaining profit will help offset the cost of the party expenses.  (Please feel free to just donate your items if you don’t want to take the time to label them - and the team will keep the profit.)  All items should be dry and in usable condition.  Please look for the collection bin at practice this week and next - if you miss it and still have items to sell, call Kristin to arrange a pick-up/drop-off date/time (or bring them on the 14th). 

Hope to see you there!
