Hello Gators!!
Hope the warm weather is making everyone excited for swim team…it’s working for me!  Here are a few updates and announcements for the next few months.  Welcome to our new Gator families who have registered…we know you are going to have FUN this summer!
Registration Date at JES  - CHANGED,
Although I had originally planned on coming to soccer on March 19, it does not start until March 26! I will now be coming to JES from 10-1 on the 26th!  You can handle all registration paperwork and pick up attraction books at that time.  Team suits will NOT be available for try-ons as there are no indoor rest rooms.
2016 Attraction Books
We have the 2016 Attraction Books for Charlottesville and Fredericksburg available now.  The books are $25 and your family will receive a $10 credit towards your fundraising obligation for every book sold.  I have the books with me and will be at Parks & Rec on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for the next two weeks if you would like to pick them up.  (I will also have registration packets available)
Mineral Parade
The parade is April 29.  We now have a truck and trailer to use as a float…thanks to Matt & Stacie!  I am looking for volunteers to design and decorate the float.  We will also need team members to ride and walk during the parade.  Let me know if you are interested in either or both! 
Cinco De Mayo GatorAid 5K
We are making progress daily on the 5K Race & Fun Run which is our major spring fundraiser.  The race will be held on May 5 to Celebrate Cinco De Mayo, beginning promptly at 6 PM…in order to avoid the train.  We will start and finish at the Louisa Art Center…festivities will include live music by Freddy Fingers Band (one of our swim team families), snacks, a beer bar (adults only) and a bar with special drinks for youth and adults alike!  The Early Bird registration fee is $25 ($30 on race day)…runners receive a race t-shirt and a free beer/drink!  The Fun Run fee is $15, participants will receive a free drink.  This year we are celebrating Police, Fire, EMS and Military (active & retired) with a reduced registration fee of $15 (T-shirt and free beer/drink included).  I have attached a registration form but you can also register on our website:  Registration fees will be credited to your swimmer’s fundraising obligation so this is a great opportunity to reduce your obligation, take part in a fun & healthy celebration and to help thank the many people who keep us safer on a daily basis!
Let me know if you have questions or are willing to help.  Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
