Dear Penguins and Parents:
Woo hoo! With a 118.1 to 112.8 victory over Almaden, our mighty penguins are now 3-0! Meet results have been posted to the Almaden page of the website.
25s TO SAVE LIVES
Thank you to everyone who participated in Friday’s 25s to Save Lives fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It was a lot of fun, and it felt amazing to see all that penguin power going for such a good cause. You can still turn in donations to the “CANCER” folder or donate online at crowdrise.com/25s-to-save-lives. Thank you for your support!
WILL YOU BE AT THE SILVER CREEK MEET?
There is no meet this weekend due to the 4th of July holiday, but the coaches and volunteer coordinators still need to know if you will be at the Silver Creek meet on July 8. So far the only families we know will be missing some or all of the meet are: Espinoza, Musoll-Buendia, and Quezada.
CHAMPS PROGRAM ADS DUE THIS WEEK
Show your penguin pride and place an ad in the VCSL Champs Program! 100% of the proceeds go directly to LPAC, so this is a great way to help support the team while giving a shout-out to your favorite penguins or promoting your business. The cost is $15 for a business card-size ad, $30 for half-page, and $50 for full-page. Use the Champs Ad Order Form to design your own ad, or just email photos and text to Kris Fuss and she can design one for you. Please submit no later than Saturday, July 1.
FUN AGE GROUP EVENTS COMING UP!
There are a couple of fun events coming up. This Friday (June 30), all swimmers in the 9-11 practice group (plus parents and siblings) are invited to go see the 11:15 am showing of “Despicable Me 3” at Tennant Station in Morgan Hill. The following week, on Monday, July 3, all swimmers in the 8 & under and 9-11 groups are invited to Golfland from 11 am – 1 pm. See the Age Group Events web page for more details. Thank you to Judy Seps and Ashley Katz for coordinating!
NO PRACTICE ON JULY 4
Please note that there will be no practices next Tuesday, July 4. Happy Independence Day! However, there will be practices at the usual times the rest of the week. We know people will be a little tired after the Raft Trip and/or fireworks, but please try to come to every practice if you can. We want to keep our undefeated streak alive!
OVERNIGHTER AND CARDBOARD BOAT RACES: JULY 8
The annual Overnighter will be on Saturday, July 8 to Sunday, July 9. This event is one of LPAC’s most treasured traditions and a highlight of every swim team season. LPAC swimmers get to camp out in tents on the grass next to the Los Paseos pool and stay up late swimming, dancing, playing dodge ball, and just having fun with their friends. The Penguin Regatta Cardboard Boat Races also take place during the Overnighter, so you might want to start building those boats now!
