CTK Track News for week of 10 Mar 08

Greetings Track Families,

A very short note this week -- no really! I am capable of brevity. Just watch.

Two practices this week:
  • Tuesday 3/11 from 5pm to 6:15pm at College Park HS
  • Thursday 3/13 from 5pm to 6:15pm at College Park HS
First Regular Meet next weekend:
  • Saturday, 3/15 at 9am at Freedom High School, Oakley
There are directions on the web site. Athletes and first shift volunteers should arrive at 8:30am. The elite setup crew should arrive at 8am. First gun at 9am if humanly possible.

Please check your volunteer assignments on the web site under Volunteers -- Meet #1. Please attempt to trade with another family (or convince your spouse or teenager to work for you) if you are scheduled but cannot make it. We will have helpers from the other parishes participating but definitely rely on the CTK/SC/SS parents for many key positions. Thanks in advance.

On behalf of our volunteer coordinators and myself, we would like to extend a big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped the Mini Meet go so smoothly. We definitely appreciate those who stuck around for the second shift when their relief never showed up. Please know that your extra service was greatly appreciated, as was your cheerfulness. Extra service from our volunteers does not go unrewarded either -- we have a drawing at the picnic for those who work more shifts than they have to. More on that later.

We will have ribbons on Tuesday from the Mini Meet and should have Starburst Awards on Thursday if things go well. Results will eventually be posted as soon as the highly-unpaid volunteer now typing them in finishes. And personal best ribbons too, in this best of all
possible worlds...

Final note: Please help the coaches by encouraging your kids to try different events at the first
few meets. It might take a few tries to find the sweet spot that most kids have.

See you on the track,


Carl Godkin
CTK/SC/SS Track & Field Coordinator
