Officials still needed for Feb. 3 Time Trial

Hello Norac Families!

We are still in need of a few bodies to help out for this short meet.  The time commitment is only a few hours from 8:30/9:00 am and we will be done by 11:00 am.
If you are coming to drop off your swimmer anyway…might as well stay!  Its a great, easy way,  to try out being an official given that its such a short meet with long races.
Please check your schedules and get back to me if you can free up a bit of time to help out.
For those of you who have already responded, thank you very much.  I will be finalizing the assignments shortly and will send it out.
Thanks again for helping to make this a great meet for our swimmers.
