Hi Squids!

First, I hope you all have some great plans to celebrate the 4th of July this weekend - during this weekend, as we remember our nation's history, I'd like to send a very huge "THANK YOU" to those of you who have/continue to serve our country and ensure us the many freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. of A. Yeahhhh America! 

As a reminder, practice tomorrow will only be for those slated to swim in the meet on Saturday. Enjoy your day of rest! :)
8am - 915am, 13 and older
915am - 10am, 12 and under

SATURDAY MEET AT Franklin Farm vs. the FF Froggers
The line-up has been sent out via team Google Group. Please check if your Squid is slated to swim and let me know ASAP if you are unavailable. In light of the holiday weekend and desire for a quick meet, Franklin Farms has proposed that we have no exhibition heats this weekend - sorry, Squids!  

Please arrive by 7am. We will begin warmups around 730am and the meet around 8am.

The meet will be held at Franklin Farms, address is:
12700 Franklin Farm Rd 
Oak Hill VA 20171

In honor of the 4th, our theme this week is Happy Birthday, America! So come decked out in your finest celebratory red, white, and blue!

Attached is the relay carnival lineup. Please check if your Squid is swimming and let us know if they are unavailable. I need to know by Saturday 12pm as our lineup is due Monday. We have some really great relays lined up that I think could get some of those HUGE relay carnival ribbons and maybe even WIN! :)

The relay carnival is being held at Sugarland Run (address below) on SUNDAY July 12th and typically runs the same time as a regular Saturday meet. More info to follow.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
