Holiday Team Dinner, Practice Times, and 2013 USMS Membership Renewal

Hope you all are holding your own these last weeks of the semester. The feedback that I have gotten is that most everyone would enjoy a holiday dinner. We were thinking either Thursday, December 13th or Friday December 14th. The dinner would be at night. Please let me know your date preference ASAP, so we can get the ball rolling on the location. More details TBA!

2nd: The Rec Center is undergoing some repairs. The pool will close for use on December 12th., which leaves us about 2 weeks left of regular practice schedule. Times will change, and I will get that info out as soon as I have it.

3rd: For past members: Please get your 2013 membership renewals into Pam by December 3rd, if at all possible. We have the Western KY meet on January 5th, so if you want to participate, you have to be a 2013 member. (All new members, you are already up to date).

If you have any questions, call or text me. Cheryl
