Good Morning, Vikings:

A quick piece of info before we begin practice this afternoon:

There are ducks in the pool.

Yes, ducks.  A mom and babies.  In our pool.  

The board is aware and working on a solution, but there are wildlife protection laws that limit what we can/can't do, so......

Please remind your swimmers to leave the ducks alone. No feeding, no petting, no pulling on their tiny webbed feet, etc.

We will run practices around the ducks, and......see how it goes :) I'm hoping that, when we all get in the pool, mom will take her babies and swim for the diving well and safety.  I know I would if I were a mother duck.

Also, a mat has been placed over the pool edge in the deep end to assist younger swimmers as they climb out of the pool.  That needs to stay in place as well.

Thanks, and see you this afternoon!
