Yesterday, it seemed that the whole of Westmount came out to celebrate Family Day in Westmount Park. The Westmount Dolphins were stationed in our favourite spot, next to the gazebo, where face-painting was taking place, the perfect location to attract young families to purchase our delicious treats.
This year's bake sale was a resounding success, raising almost $600 towards the cost of the ribbons that we distribute at swimming and diving competitions. This puts us in a good position going forward and will ensure that we can cover the cost of those items and any other equipment costs we may have this season.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who came out to work at the bake table. You ensured quick service to our many hungry clients so no one had to wait very long for a treat.
We especially want to thank all of the dedicated bakers and shoppers this season: your delicious contributions ensured that we had the most successful Family Day bake sale ever! Special mention must go to all those who prepared some of the most beautifully decorated cupcakes that we have had in years. It must be said: we owe much of the success to these intrepid bakers who piped and spread fancy icings and sprinkles to great effect. Their visually appealing treats attracted so many customers to stop by our table: no one left empty-handed!
Finally, we want to thank all of the Dolphins members who came out to visit the table and offer their support. We are sure that you must have enjoyed the treats that you purchased!
We hope all of you who attended Family Day had a great time and we look forward to seeing all of you soon, starting the week of June 12 when the pre-season will begin. Please make note of the pre-season schedule found on the landing page of our website. Pre-season is a great way for new members and summer athletes to get a feel for swimming before the regular season and meets begin.
The regular season begins the week of June 26 and you may also find the regular season schedule on the landing page of our website.
CLOTHING: Deadline for optional clothing orders is May 28 at midnight. To order, simply go into your Amilia account, choose the "Merchandise" tab and the page for ordering these items will appear. If you are uncertain about swim suit sizing, visit the SPEEDO size charts here.
TEAM T-SHIRT DISTRIBUTION AND INFORMATION MEETING: Don't forget to attend the Team T-shirt Distribution, Information and Annual General Meeting taking place in the Multi-purpose Room at the WRC on Wednesday June 14 at 6:30pm (while the 12 and unders are swimming). We recommend at least one parent per family should attend.
TRAINING FOR SWIMMING OFFICIALS: We want to invite all of you who are interested in learning some of the tasks that are needed on deck at swim meets to attend the ALPS (Association of Lakeshore Pools) Mini-Clinics taking place on Wednesday June 21 at 6:30pm at the Pointe-Claire Aquatics Centre. Contact Ross Tzankov at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Swimming officials ensure fun and fair competition for all and are an important facet of competitive swimming. We will be hosting 4 swim meets this summer so we will need to provide most of the officials for those events. If you cannot attend the mini-clinics but still want to learn tasks, don't worry, there are many of us here who can train you this summer!
There will be information coming soon regarding training for Diving Officials so watch our website!
Our 25th season is going to be a great one and we look forward to sharing it with you!
Go Dolphins Go!
