AMAZING!!!!!! For us to have that many top tens, let alone that incredible number of top 3's is truly special. So a HUGE congratulations to ALL of our Divisional swimmers!!


I also want to thaks all of you that helped out yesterday. Many of you worked your fannies off as usual (Heather Hingson, Karen Courtney and Melissa Humphries we all should be kissing your feet adn wiping the sweat from your brows) and as always your help is greatly appreciated. I think we must have the best parents of all time because everyone steps up to the plate when needed.

I will be sending out a seperate email after I clean my house, do 20 loads of laundry, buy toilet papaer to replace the kleenex we've been using, feed the boys actual food instead of letting them forage for chips and soda and ice get the picture...with info about Championships on Sunday. Most of you should have a good idea of your chances of going back, but the general guideline is anyone in the top 3 individuals should qualify, a bit deeper if your 12 or under, the relays are tougher because only the top ten go, but 1st and 2nd are pretty safe. We won't know for sure until after the last Divisional meet Saturday night, and will send out an email then to confirm with all of you. If you won't be available Sunday, and have not already told Maggie, please do so ASAP. We have to scratch swimmers now so they can send alternates.

We have to have workers as well - I need 4 timers, 2 each half - they swim the meet in one pool so no problem seeing your swimmer, but there are two session, one for the 10 and unders and one for the 11 and up's, so that means I need four parents for the first session and four parents for the second session. Altera is already in for frist session/1st half and Knippenberg for 2nd session/2nd half Joe? Let me know your availablity so I can make sure we are covered.


Great party last night, great season, great families. Thanks to all of you from the Joyce household and GO VIKINGS! Liz
