Orders will be taken at the potluck on Friday or please see Stephanie or Tiffany at the meet on Saturday.

Important Champs Program Preparation and Deadlines
Every year at championships they offer a book--program of all the teams and swimmers who get to go. All the races with swimmers names are listed in the program. We will be selling the programs for $10, and you can also purchase dedication pages (Full page will be $20 and ½ page will be $10). Please see the 2 types of pages attached. If you would like to purchase these items please see us at the potluck or please locate Stephanie or Tiffany at the meet on Saturday. Please note all pages must be printed and given to Stephanie or Tiffany by Saturday at the meet or emailed to them by Sunday evening at 5:00pm. Again we have a tight deadline for these items as we have to turn them in to get printed.
Consider purchasing a quarter/half/full sheet dedication page for your favorite swimmers! Dedication Templates:Full Page, Half Page, Quarter Page (upon request)
Bluefins Food Table!!
At championships we will be offering lunch again this year. For swimmers meal tickets will be $5.00 and for family members it will be $7.00. This is an amazing yummy meal that will be set-up in our "home base" area. We highly encourage you all to take advantage of this, as food lines at the meet are often long. Tickets will be sold at the potluck on Friday or please see Stephanie or Tiffany at the meet on Saturday.
EVERYONE SUPPLIES THEIR OWN DRINKS, BRING PLENTY.
Keys to success!
