NORAC Holiday Hayride/Sleigh Ride

Hello NORAC families,
On Sunday, December 1/19, we will be having our Competitive Team Holiday get together. This email contains information about the hayride or sleigh ride (if we have enough snow). I will send out the information for the pot luck, happening in the afternoon from 3:00-5:00 P.M., a little closer to the date.

The hayride/sleigh ride will be in the morning at 11:30 A.M. on December 1/19, for competitive swimmers. We will be going in groups, and we will be meeting at Barrett’s Christmas Tree Farm, north of Cobourg located at 3141 Williamson Road. The cost is $5. You will need to purchase a ticket from me in order to be able to participate, and you will need to bring that ticket the day of the hayride/sleigh ride. It will be collected.

In case of inclement weather, a rain/freezing rain date will be Sunday, December 15/19. I will send out an email the morning of December 1/19, if the weather does not cooperate and we need to postpone the date.

Families are invited to come out and enjoy the fun too. Besides Christmas trees for sale, Barrett’s will have hot apple cider and hot chocolate for sale, as well, they’ll have pony rides, a weekend camp fire, and other fun events. Check out their events page.

Please respond to this email if you wish to purchase a ticket for your competitive swimmer(s). Annette will deduct the $5 from your swimmeet account. Families who do not maintain a balance in the account will need to send Annette an etransfer or give me the cash. If you are giving me cash, please put it in a sealed envelope with your swimmer’s name printed on it, and put it into Megan/Rebecca Jones’s folder at the pool. I will periodically check the folder. I will put your purchased ticket in your swimmer’s folder at the pool.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Swim Meet Volunteers Needed for October 19/20

Hello Norac Families:

Our first home meet is coming up quickly and we need lots of help to make it a smooth and successful meet, with lots of fun for our swimmers.

Please let me know if you are willing to help out on deck in the various positions and what position you would like to do with appropriate training.

If anyone is looking for a sign off, please indicate that and we will try to accommodate you.

As always, this is a great opportunity to earn points and requests will be filled first come, first served.

This is the best way to see your swimmers and support their team mates. They always love having their families on deck and near the action.

Thank you for considering to spend a little time helping your club.

Feel free to message me if there are any questions.

Heads Up – Officals help for High School Swim Meets

Hello all,

Just received a request for assistance with the local High School Swim Meets again this year. Dates this year are:

– Thursday December 12th- PHHS Invitational

– Wednesday February 12th – Kawartha Championship Meet

NORAC Officials have been providing assistance at these meets for several years and our help is truly appreciated.

Both of these meets will be held at the Jack Burger Sports Complex. Start time is usually about 10 am and finished by 2 ish.

If you are only able to help with 1, the February one is the most important. More details will be provided as we get closer to the date.

If you know of anyone else with some swim meet experience (or willingness to learn) that may be able to help, please pass this note along to them.

Thanks

Annette
