News and Announcements
Hello OK Regional Members,
Due to the City of Kamloops’ new rules regarding concessions the Tsunami Club will no longer be able to grill on the grounds at Brock Pool.
We have secured a fantastic Food Truck to be on site to feed the masses. They have provided a great menu and we hope it meets everyone’s needs.
The menu is as follows:
Sausage and Egger: Your classic breakfast sandwich served on a
English Muffin with or without cheese.
Gyro and Egger: A twist on your classic breakfast sandwich served
with gyro meat and Tzatziki.
Lunch and beyond:
Pizza by the slice: Pepperoni, Ham and Pineapple and Cheese
Hot Dogs: Everyone’s goto all big beef dogs.
Donairs: Gyro meat, onions, tomato, lettuce and our very own
Coffee and Muffins will be available throughout the day.
The Tsunami Swimmers will be selling:
Frozen Treats, Soft Drinks, Energy Bars and other packaged goodies we hope you will support our small but stocked concession.
Just a reminder that athletes that qualify for the provincial meet will have an opportunity to practice with the regional team at Brockelhurst pool on the Monday following the regional meet. The camp will start at * am and be done at noon on Monday. The coaches are providing a SPECIALIZED CAMP which will allow each swimmer an opportunity to work with another coach in the details of their technique. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!
Here is a chance to vote for your choice of the regional logo.
Thanks to all that submitted a logo
GREAT JOB! http://www.anonvote.com/strawpoll/lm7180j
Challenge week sign-up sheets have been posted outside the main pool entrance. Thank you Anna, Bailey, Sage, Connie and Pam for organizing such an activity- packed week for our swimmers. Click here to view the detailed schedule. Go Ducks!
Our home meet is July 7 and 8! A HUGE thank you goes out to Dave Holland, our meet manager, for all the work he and his crew have done so far.
Invites for our home meet have already gone out. The June 26th email contains instructions on how to sign-up and choose events, and you will have until Monday night to register online. Our home meet is free for all Aquaducks, and all swimmers are encouraged to take part. If you are not attending, please follow the links and “decline” to attend – this helpful to our coaches.A few notes about our meet:
Turtles will need to be at the pool by about 9:30 am both days, as their events occur after the 50 free events on Saturday and after the Backstroke events on Sunday. All Turtle races are 25 meters. Senior swimmers will be assisting as usual.
Division 1 to 4 swimmers warm-up from 7:00-7:20 am on Saturday and 7:20-7:40 on Sunday. Division 5-8 swimmers will warm up from 7:20-7:40 on Saturday and 7:00 – 7:20 Sunday. Arriving on deck 10 minutes early is optimal. Swimmers hang-out in mp1 between events, so beach chairs, sleeping bags, snacks, water, and reading materials make for an enjoyable day. The meet starts at 8:00 am each day, and will likely wrap up in the mid afternoon.
Quite a number of parents are needed to run a swim meet. The club really benefits from your involvement – this meet is our most significant fundraiser of the year thanks to the many visiting swimmers. Outside the main pool doors, on the Aquaducks Notice Board, are sheets where parents are asked to sign-up for set-up, timing, concession, awards, or whatever looks interesting to you. Free on the job training is always included:)
A fair bit of information is headed your way over the next week or so. Click here to read the meet package. If you still have questions, contact email@example.com or ask any experienced Aquaducks parent.
