objections, the first dual meet next year will be on May 30
with Champs on July 25th. (As opposed to June 6th to August
1st) Age up date will still be on June 1st and kids ages
will pertain to the whole season even though the first meet
is before the age up date.
you for Champs
wanted to send a big thank you to all the teams, swimmers,
parents, volunteers, and everyone else that made Saturday
happen. Even though the campus conditions were not ideal, we
all pulled together to make it one of the smoothest running
meets in recent history.
a new record for items left in the lost and found this year.
I could barely get it all in my car. There were no
electronic item turned into me (phones, Ipods. MP3's, etc).

chairs. The only items that were tagged were:

keep the stuff for a week. After that I will donate it to
would like to add my THANK YOU all the generous volunteers
that helped make EBSL 2008 Champs a success. I would like to
offer my thanks and apperciation to Bruce for his
committment to making things work this year - amist all the
construction and uncertaintee we faced prior to the start of
the meet Saturday. I would like to thank Peggy and Jerry for
putting together a well educated and focused group of
starters and officials, and the energy they contributed
Saturday. I would like to thank all the team Champ Reps -
there were alot of new team jobs this year and you all
worked passionately to make sure things got done (even
without the binder from the team who had the job last year)!
I would like to thank all the coaches, swimmers and parents
that respected the rules and job assingments. I would like
to give a special thank you to Betsy for taking care of
issues I didn't even know existed as well as all the ones I
directed her way. My personal perspective of the day was -
things flowed very well. We will always have our waves and
splashes to improve on for next year, though I truely
believe this year glided along with improvment from years
this year, I would like to have a Champs de-breifing meeting
within the next month to go over things. We will work to get
a date and get it out to you ASAP. I hope that the young
women invovled in the medical emergency at the end of the
day is doing well.
you all again for supporting Bruce and I in the role of
to thank the Meet Directors, Diana and Bruce, Officials,
Champ Committees, EBSL BOD, Team Presidents and Coaches for
the well run meet. When we all do our jobs the meet runs
all about the kids and giving our children the opportunity
to have a fun summer
