 Hello Gators!
I hope everyone is beginning to get excited about summer swim team!  The warm weather is definitely helping.  Just a few reminders as you get ready to enjoy Spring Break.
Team Registration
I will be at JES during LASA soccer on Saturday to handle team registration for this summer.  I will set up on the basketball court from 10 AM – 1 PM.  The current Early Bird fee is $170/first swimmer and $160 each additional swimmer in the family. I will also have Attraction Books, Sponsorship Information and our Cinco De Mayo 5K race forms.  Note – I will not have suits to try on at JES.
I will also be working the LCPRT office next Thursday & Friday.  Hopefully everyone will have the chance to get registered before the April 1 deadline.  After that, the registration fee goes to $185/first swimmer and $175 each additional swimmer.
Sponsor Forms
I am attaching the 2016 Sponsor Forms for you to begin looking for team sponsors.  The 2016 fundraising obligation is $100 per swimmer.  Sponsors of $250 or more received by April 15 will be listed on BOTH the Cinco De Mayo 5K t-shirt and the 2016 Team T-shirt.   That is a great deal of exposure because there will be at least 200 shirts running around the area advertising your business sponsor!
Attraction Books
I have Attraction coupon books for Fredericksburg & Charlottesville.  The Charlottesville book has $35 (4 different) Food Lion, 4 – BOGO at McDonalds, 4 – BOGO at Arby’s, 4-$10 at Dick’s Sporting Goods, 15% off at Walgreens, 2 BOGO at IHop, 4 - $5 off at Pizza Hut…and the list goes on!  Coupons are from businesses in Louisa, Orange, Greene, Albemarle Counties and the City of Charlottesville!
The Fredericksburg book covers Stafford, Spotsylvania, Caroline, King George and Orange County. This book also has $35 Food Lion (doesn’t list Louisa stores but may work everywhere), McDonalds, Arby’s, Domino’s, $35 (4 coupons) Bass Pro Shop, many restaurants, golf courses and amusement type business.
Both books also have National Chain coupons for ice cream parlors, car maintenance and tires as well as many other restaurants and businesses.  It is a great deal, just $25 which you can get back just from shopping at Food Lion.  Your swimmer will receive at least $10 towards their fundraising obligation.  This is a fantastic way for you to raise money as well as helping your own budget!
Cinco De Mayo 5K
Our 5K race & Fun Run will be held on Thursday, May 5…beginning and ending at the Louisa Arts Center.  We will begin race check in at 5:00 PM, the 5K race will begin promptly at 6:00 PM (in order for runners to miss the train!) and the Fun Run will begin at 7:00 PM.  Advance registration is $25 or $15 Fun Run – prior to April 15, all military & service personnel are just $15, registration the day of the race is $30.  During and after the race we will have live music from The Freddy Fingers Band as well as snacks and beverages (for all ages!).  This is also a great opportunity to check out the Louisa Art Center exhibits!  All race registrations associated with your family can be credited towards your fundraising obligation.
Mineral Parade Float
We are having a parade float in the Mineral Fireman’s Parade on April 29.  I think we have the trailer under control but need ideas and people to help decorate!  PLEASE contact me if you are interested in helping with the float, we are having a planning meeting on Wednesday, March 30 at 6:00 PM at Los Tres Potrillos (Louisa Mexican Restaurant).  Decorations will need to be done ahead of time so that we can fix the trailer at the last minute.  We will also need swimmers to walk/ride but I will let you know about that closer to the parade.
Hope to see most of you tomorrow…or very soon!
