2014 Track Signups Reminder
Our first signup night is this Thursday, January 23rd, from 6:30pm-8:30pm at Christ the King School in Pleasant Hill in room 222 (the sixth-grade classroom.) Thanks in advance to the families who have offered to help out.
If you can't make it this Thursday, there will be a second night on Tuesday the 28th at the same time, in the same room.
You can save time and fill out the forms in advance. Details and links to the forms are on the team web site on the "Signups" page:
If you're signing up a new athlete, we need a copy of their legal proof of age -- birth certificate, passport, etc.. A photocopy is fine, it does not need to be an official version. I keep these in our team files and shred them when the athletes age out of CYO, so please make sure you don't need the document back. I should have these already for any returning athletes.
At signups, you'll be asked to put your family's name down to work a number of shifts at the meets. Please bring your calendar with you, and be aware of any commitments like spring break, vacations, or first communion. CYO is volunteer-run, and we need your help to run the meets. I'll be working behind the volunteer signup tables if you have any questions.
The question of which meet is being held after Easter is still undecided. Historically this is the relay meet. I have the signup sheets listed that way, but like anything in CYO, we flex to meet unexpected challenges.
Veteran families: we also have a number of team jobs open. Gina Marks is our brave volunteer coordinator this year, and she's in charge of the care and feeding of that list. Please come to signup night and talk to Gina if she's present or me if she's not about doing a team job. Expect to hear about these again in future newsletters if they go unfilled.
Finally, I have a small collection of ribbons, medals, and other award paraphernalia left over from last season. I'll have these at the signup nights for your rummaging pleasure. Nothing makes me happier than to go home with fewer things than I arrived with.
That's all for now -- hope to see you at signups.
