Not exactly the perfect week to have a late newsletter in but there had been some changes to our start we're going to have practice tonight Tuesday between 6:00 - 7:30, this is due to the high school meet on Thursday, so we won't have any practice on Thursday.
Also our meet this weekend has been moved to College of the Canyons with Santa Clarita West (Lightning Warriors). This will be a very large meet. To help speed up things we've been asked to time the back side hundreds, because Gremlin's don't get a qualifying mark they can run on the back side of the track during the 100 meter race and this helps to shorten the meet by having both sides of the track being used. It will require timers and tag pullers, staging etc, I've updated the volunteer form and cleared out those who had signed up so please visit the sign up sheet and plug yourselves in, we need your help.
More news below: 
This weeks Practices 
Practices are held Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday at Valencia High School on the track starting at 6:00 pm Pick up will be around 7:45 this week. We are back to our normal hours
You can turn in funds raised for the club any time, the dead line is April 16. When turning in money, we ask that only ONE CHECK PER FAMILY payable to SCTC, be written for the entire amount the athlete has raised. (Checks from Sponsors written directly to the club by non-members may not be credited to your child.)
If you have any questions, please see Alan or Michele at the information table.
Track Meet
This week's Track meet will be at College of the Canyons in Valencia, this is a change from what we originally were scheduled. Please try to arrive around 8:00 pm
We will need your help, I've setup a sign-up sheet on the website on the left hand side bar on the main page. They have asked up to time the back side 100 meter race for the Gremlins. This helps reduce the time at the meet because both sides of the track are used to run the 100m races.
We may be asked to assist in some of the field events as well, that you'll have to play by ear, if you want to help in the field events please see Michele Ewing at the meet.
Lost & Found
There have been a lot of items left at the track, we try to pick them up and place them on the fence for pick up each night. Please take a look and see if any of the items on the fence belong to your children. At the end of next week all items will be donated.  
Picture Day is April 30th
Our picture day has been rescheduled to April 30th, please be sure to have your child come to practice in uniform that day. Coaches' wear your uniforms also.
Scholastic Form Deadline
The deadline for turning in scholastice forms is Thursday April 23. Please be sure that your child has met the criteria for getting the award (B+ average or higher).  
Stormwear Is In! Please Pick up your Order
If you order for Stormwear it has come in and will be available for pick up on Monday and Wednesday during practice, please see Bettie Jo at the information table.
Awards ribbons
Results have been corrected from the first meet, please take a moment to review your child's events and help us make sure they got the correct award ribbon, if for some reason they were not correct, could you return them and we'll correct them.
