I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.
Next Monday is the Lap-a-thon at Saugus High school, at 6:00 pm,  I am taking song requests, please send me an email with your requests.
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.
Our lap-a-thon is scheduled for September 8, at Saugus High School, This is our primary fund raiser event, This fund raiser helps us keep our price low, allows us to offer scholarships, and assist our athletes in national competition.
We ask every family to seek pledges either by flat rate or a per lap donation. The athletes run 1 hour, later they return to their donors and collect their pledges to turn in by the dead line.  
We will award a grand prize of Disneyland park hopper tickets to the athlete who raises the most funds. Every athlete who raises $40.00 will also win a prize.   
The deadline to be eligible for the grand prize is October 7th. Athletes who raise $40.00 or more will still be eligible to win a lap-a-thon prize even if they turn in the funds after October 7th.
Song Requests: We are taking requests. If you have a song you want to hear during the lap-a-thon, please let me an email so I can make sure I have it, * We may not be able to get to all songs requested.

Turn In Your Pictures
I need you to bring a digital camera to practices, lap-a-thon, and meets, so we can catch the kids working out. I'm also uploading those pictures to a website for sharing, we will be using those pictures for the memory DVD. Please burn them to a CD. or see Elaine or Alan to check out a thumb drive to put them on.   
A New slide show will go up as we get more pictures. Check the website to see the show.
I am also looking for people who have digital video camera so we can add some moving pictures to the DVD, please bring them to practice and to the meets, which are coming up in a couple of weeks.
