LAST REMINDER!!!!! to turn in your fin orders by this Sunday the 7th. All orders should be turned into Taylor Limbert's mailbox. Again if you received a form and do not need the fins please indicate that on the form so I don't miss anyone. The fins will be ordered on Monday and hopefully will arrive in about a week. I will notify everyone through the website when they arrive. Please don't forget to enclose your payment of $14.00 with your order.

Kast-a-way will be at the Y Thursday evening between the hours of 6:00-8:00 to distribute swimsuits and apparel that was purchased in the first two fittings. If you are in need of a team suit yet, they will be able to size your swimmer that night as well. They will not be bringing all of the apparel to try on, but you may still place orders that evening. Please make an effort to come pickup your items that you ordered even if your swimmer is not at practice Thursday night.

They will also be at the home meet this Saturday with all of the apparel and the swimsuits if you are not able to pickup Thursday evening, but again, please try to get it out of the way Thursday night.

Thanks, Paul

I am currently 6 caps shy of the minimum order number of 50. If you are interested in a personalized team cap, there are order forms in the mailboxes labeled caps and apparel. Please get your orders in ASAP so we may order these as quickly as possible.

I have reached the minimum order needed for the personalized magnets. I will hold off until Wednesday to place that order. You will also find order forms for those in the same folder.

The T-shirts will hopefully be ordered this week. If you did not get a chance to turn your order form in tonight please do so immediately.

Lastly, if you did not get in for the fin fitting tonight you will find an order form in your swimmers mailbox. Even if your swimmer does not need the fins please mark that on the order form so I know they are not needed. If you did not receive an order form your swimmer is not required to have fins.

If there are any questions please e-mail me at pndlimbert@aol.com.

Thanks

If your swimmer is required to have fins for practice, you will receive an order form in your mailbox. (Fins is noted next to swimmer's name on the Practice Group list posted on the home page -- do not click the Practice Groups on the left as that is old information). Even if you do not need them, there is a place on the form to check for that. Please return all order forms to Taylor Limbert's mailbox by Sunday October 7th. The cost of the fins will be $14.00, please enclose your payment with your order. As always if you want to write a check please make it out to LTPY Swim Team. I will order all fin orders on that following Monday. If you do not have your order form in by then you will be responsible for ordering your own. If there are any questions please e-mail me at pndlimbert@aol.com.

Thanks
