Great Job everyone! I am so proud of all our kiddos – we have such a wonderful group of folks in our Village.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered this week at our mock meet! We had several volunteers that were new to their positions tonight and everyone did a great job. I want to say a special shout out to Eddie and Chris for learning the clerk of course duties.   You guys did a fantastic job and had it down by the end of the night.    I also want to say a special shout out to Eric for heading up the timers and getting all the kids times down.
Next week will be our first official meet and I hope everyone is looking forward to it.    If you volunteered in a position that you liked tonight please make sure and sign up on the volunteer sign up sheet.   If you saw a position that you might like to learn let me know and we will make it happen.
