I have a video box on the website with highlights of the games. check it out.  
I really enjoyed the games. I hope you did too.
Fantastic! You rock! This week we focused on what we learned with Kirt last week and started doing hill repeats, we also put in a hard work out on Saturday doing our first time trial.
Parents, we still need you to bring your camera to practice, If you could put your pictures onto a CD disk or check out one of the thumb drives, so we can put them together for the end of season DVD video.

Jolly Ranchers
We ask that each family please bring 2 bags of Jolly Ranchers to practice this week. At the end of practice each day we like to give the kids a small reward. 
Turn In Your Pictures
Please turn in your pictures you have taken each week, we have thumb drives that you can use to turn in your pictures for the memory DVD. Or you can burn them to a CD. Please see Elaine if you would like to check one out.  
We have put up a slide show of pictures of the first two weeks of practice. We could use all the pictures and videos that you have. At the end of the season at the party we will hand each child a DVD of the season's highlights.
Our lap-a-thon is scheduled for September 8, we are still getting our permits for the site, and that will be announced later, but what happens is the kids will run for 1 hour, we will have a DJ and play music for the kids to run to. The kids seek pledges either flat donations or a per-lap donation and then collect those pledges, turn in the funds by the dead line to be illegible for an award.  We will award a grand prize of Disneyland park hopper tickets to the athlete who raises the most funds. Click on the "Year of a Million Dreams" on our website for more information about Disneyland & California Adventure. 
Funds from this event are used to help keep our prices down, support athletic scholarships, and to support travel expenses for our national athletes
