THANK YOU!

sectionAfinalsWe would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Section Finals such a success. We were up against a lot of rainy weather- but this did not deter smiles, team spirit and great effort to create a fun and memorable day- not to mention a winning meet for Lakeshore! We’ll be sure to send out the final scores once we get our hands on them! The meet could not have run as smoothly without everyone’s help, so again- Thank you! A BIG congratulations to all swimmers who competed at Section Finals! Best wishes to those heading to Finals next Saturday at Cedar Park Heights Pool- ask your coaches for more details!

Lakeshore Section Finals Organizers

Lakeshore is hosting SECTION FINALS for A POOLS on August 13 – WE NEED YOUR HELP

SHORE-hosting

On Saturday August 13, Lakeshore Pool will be hosting the Section Finals for A pools -all the pools we’ve swam against this summer. This will be a huge event for Lakeshore- similar to the Finals we hosted last summer. It’s a very rare occurrence for our pool to be hosting such significant events two years in a row. As we know from last year, it takes MANY people to make this event a great success. We are reaching out to the Lakeshore community once again to ask for your help!

If you would like to be a part of a day that promises to have lots of energy, excitement and fun- this is your chance!!!

Most of the volunteering will centre around food on the day of the event- set up, preparation and selling of food! Beyond this, there will be a need for setup on Friday evening, clean up on Saturday afternoon, helping with parking, raffle organization and a few other posts with details coming soon. Please note that Lakeshore will not be responsible for providing officials. All officials will be supplied by ALPS -Association of Lakeshore Pools.

If you can spare the morning or even a few hours, it would be greatly appreciated. If you are a parent of a swimmer or swimmers in the Section Finals, we would be so happy to have your help in advance or even between your children’s races on the day of the event. Please send me an email and let me know if you’re able to help and when. The times will likely range from 5pm to 9pm on Friday evening and 6am to 3pm on Saturday.

If you would like to contribute to the day but can not be there, we would greatly appreciate a donation of baked goods or a contribution for the raffle.

We’re also looking for a few people to help with advanced preparation:

  • BAKE TABLE COORDINATOR
  • PARKING COORDINATOR
  • RAFFLE ORGANIZER

We will send out more details in the upcoming days- please send me an email- [email protected] if you have any questions about volunteering for this exciting event!

Thank you,

Sue Cookson
