Good Evening Squids!!!

Warning: This is another long message. 

What a great way to kickoff the 2017 season with a win at AKC! I am so proud of how we finished. There were many best times and wins on Saturday. Many of the squids are already league leaders. This includes - Lila Sherman, Claire Mowery, and Nora Sherman!!! Congrats!

It has also delighted me to hear we received compliments from the AKC Clerk of Course staff. They called our Squids very polite and positive. Everyone should be very proud of themselves. I sent out the results via FMST listserv. Everyone should take a chance to look it over. Again, very proud of the squids.

Now that school is out WE WILL MOVE TO MORNING PRACTICES STARTING TOMORROW!!!!!!

Here is the schedule: 

Seniors and Dev. 5 and 6: 7-7:50 am 
Intermediate and Dev. 3 and 4: 8-8:50 am 
Junior and Dev. 1 and 2: 9-9:50 am 

Moving on to Wednesday's B-Meet now. The theme is Crazy Hats. It will be held at the Glen Cove Pirate's pool. I know Dawn England has already put the address in the last email but here it is again - 5471 Brigantine Way, Fairfax, VA 22032. It is a 25 yard pool! So the times will be faster than our meter times! We should park in the pool lot. Overflow parking is available along Brigantine Way and Zion Drive.
