Lopatcong Invitational sign-ups and reminders
Hello Swim families,
Please read this email to the end. It contains important information about the 45th annual Lopatcong Invitational on Saturday, July 13. It is only a week away! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and it requires as many people as possible to help make it a success!
1) Set-up for this event will be on Friday, July 12 from 5-7:30 PM. We will provide pizza for anybody willing to help set up the tents, tables, lane lines, etc. Please RSVP so that we can have an adequate count for pizza. All swimmers are invited to come make posters to decorate. We will have poster boards, but bring your own supplies to share (markers, crayons, etc.).
2) Declare attendance and race preferences under MEETS/EVENTS> Meet entry. Coach Drake will determine final race entries. More info to follow.
3) Sign up for Jobs and Hospitality donations under MEETS/EVENTS> Job signup. We still have a few openings for jobs that day, we’re especially in need of a Parking Director. Make sure to look if your job requires you to come in early morning. Every family, including Developmental only swimmers, should donate at least TWO food or drink items on this list. Breakfast items or items marked with “AM” must be brought to the pool the night before during our set-up period or Saturday morning by 6:30am. All other items should be dropped off at the Hospitality Tent by 10am. Check in with Marilyn Van Oosten.
4) Also on the Job signup, is a place to donate needed pop-up tents, 6-8 foot folding tables, and large coolers that should be brought to the pool by Friday during set-up. All equipment loans will be returned. Please make sure to put your name on all your items.
5) A&H Sporting Goods will be selling various swim gear and apparel at the event. If you would like to avoid waiting in the long line, you can preorder an Invitational shirt using the link below by Monday July 8th, 2019 (11:59pm EDT). Our team roster with your child’s name(s) will be on the back. Not all colors or styles offered online may be available the day of the meet. https://lopatconginvitationalswimming-2019.itemorder.com/
