Friday's Meet

In order for the meets to run smoothly a large number of volunteers are necessary. I understand that means a quarter of the parents need to volunteer each meet and that is a lot. Volunteering should be viewed as fun. You can see most of the meet from all the jobs, half of the jobs you can have a sibling present, and no experience is necessary. You are at the meet anyway so why not help out.

I sent out an email yesterday morning asking for volunteers for tomorrow's meet. As of 3pm Thurs. I received 5 responses. I still need 15 more volunteers - 7 timers, 1 long jump, 3 girl movers, 2 home base and 2 recorders. It saddens me to say this but, if I do not get the additional volunteers by tonight at 9pm I will cancel the meet. The children are the ones hurt by the lack of volunteers. It also is not fair to the other town. Please respond back to to volunteer. And, I am hoping that there will be some new faces volunteering. I will also have the volunteer sheet at tonight's practice.

Misc Items

Last night was a perfect example of why children just can't be dropped off at practice. There was a track meet rescheduled on the track so I made arrangements to use the field hockey field. Unfortunately, baseball had a home game so the high school track meet needed the field hockey field for the javelin. I was not informed of this in advance or I would have cancelled practice. Sorry for cancelling at the last minute but these type of last minute scheduling conflicts happen. Thanks for understanding.

Also, the meet this Friday, May 1st is at Jefferson High School not home. The schedule on the blog has been corrected. Sorry for any confusion.

We like to give the participants an individual photo and a team photo at the end of the season. Any one interested in volunteering to take photos of the kids and team at one of the practices please email Maryellen Higgins at Thank you in advance.
