Hello to all Maple Dale Country Club members! The third year for the Maple Dale Raptor Swim team has proven to be very successful! Championships are right around the corner, and this year will be the best year with 75% of the swimmers qualifying to attend the meet. As stated previously, the roster has nearly doubled in size from the first year, and many swimmers swam best times this season. The team was fortunate to have all home meets, and won four out of their six meets.
Many thanks to all of the parents who have stepped up and volunteered their time to help…..we couldn’t do it without you! A special thanks to Angie Garsney for coordinating the fundraisers (swim- a-thon coordinated through the USA Swimming organization as well as a Chipotle night), Shari May and Harvey Velott for coordinating our officials, Linda Velott for being the communications chair, and Conrad Steele for helping get organized the mornings of the meets. These are just a few of the parents that have stepped up and made the season run smoothly. After the championship meet, the team will have their awards banquet hosted at the Club to celebrate their great season.
An additional thank you to the rest of the parents that assisted this season to help things run so smoothly and to Coach Chris, Coach Chris, Coach Hillary, Coach Joy and Coach Rob for keeping the swimmers excited and motivated this season.
As far as the pool goes we are open from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm, and we have a great team functioning as lifeguards and snack shack workers. Be on the look out for the next Family Fun Night, where we will have games and activities, as well as a floating movie. Grab your rafts, sit back, and enjoy the show! It’s always a great time to see old friends and meet new ones.
Labor Day we will open our regular hours, and will also have some fun activities scheduled. See everyone poolside!
