Pasta dinner reminder & important info about Saturday's meet
We hope to see our Laser family at our pasta dinner tonight. It is open to all team members! We will begin eating around 6:30pm once practice is over and all the swimmers and coaches arrive. We will let the youngest swimmers eat first. We ask that each family bring a dish with enough food to feed their family and a little more to share. It’s not too late to sign up to bring a dish under Job Signup.
Our pasta dinner helps our swimmers fuel up before a meet! Our first A meet is tomorrow at Washingtonian Woods. The address of the pool is 511 Midsummer Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. Please see the attached map and notes about parking below.
The theme is Maryland! Come dressed in your Maryland finest to show your team spirit. We don’t know if our team area will be shaded, so you may want to bring your tent. We will have several umbrella tables in our team area, which is on the side of the pool with the shallow end and closest to Lane 1.
Please meet in the parking lot at 8 AM so we can walk in together as a team. Be sure to check in with one of the coaches so we know everyone is accounted for. Our warmups will be from 8:20 - 8:40 AM so be ready to get in the water at 8:20 AM sharp!
We have not received a meet program yet, but I will send it on when we do so you can print it out. You can also review it to let your swimmers know what events they are swimming. Please do not leave the meet tomorrow unless your swimmer has checked out with the coaches (unless you have already let them know you have to leave early). The relay participant list in the lineup is tentative. Swimmers should not remove their suits unless Coach Jorge tells them they are not swimming in a relay.
If you have a swimmer in the meet, we need you to sign up for a job if you haven’t already. We cannot hold a successful meet without all of our volunteer roles being filled. We still need second half timers and a computer verifier, a job where you can sit!
Our team lunch will be at the Panera in the Kentlands at the conclusion of the meet. The address is 285 Kentlands Blvd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878. Once the meet has concluded, head on over and order your food. You may even want to order online on the way! The coaching staff will hand out ribbons to everyone who swam that day. We are also excited for the return of spirit awards at the team luncheon!
