Ice Cream / B Meet / B Relays / More!

posted Jul 8, 2017, 5:18 PM by NorthCreek Neptunes
Dear Neptunes, 

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend! This week's schedule is a little different, because we have both a B Meet on Tuesday, and then B Relays on Thursday. This means there is no evening practice on Tuesday or Thursday this week. 
Also, coming up this weekend is our final dual A meet on Saturday, followed by the 33rd Annual North Creek Invitational Long Course!  But before all, that starts, let's have some ice cream! Read on for details:

1. Ice Cream Social, Monday
2. B Meet at Lake Marion, Tuesday
3. B Relays at North Creek, Thursday
4. A Meet at Rockshire, Saturday
5. Long Course at North Creek, Sunday

1. Ice Cream Social, Monday at Hurley Park
Let's all scream for ice cream! We will be serving ice cream (and toppings!) after evening practice on Monday, starting at 6:45 pm. 
Cost is $1.00 per bowl.
All swimmers (including morning swimmers, and families too!) are invited to stop by Hurley Park for a bowl of ice cream! Yum!

2. B Meet at Lake Marion, Tuesday (no evening practice) - Swimmer sign-up deadline is Monday at 7:30 pm
On Tuesday, we will be heading to nearby Lake Marion pool for our regular B Meet.
3. B Relays at North Creek, Thursday (no evening practice) - Swimmer sign-up deadline is Wednesday at 12:00pm
The B relay carnival will be on Thursday, July 13th at home! 


This meet is similar to the A relay meet. All the B league teams participate and it's a TON of fun. Swimmers who did not swim in the A relay will take priority. Swimmers who swam in the A relay may be able to swim in the B relays if there are open slots in the age group that need to be filled. Anyone who signed up but will not be in the final lineup will be notified.

VOLUNTEERS needed: This is a big meet, as all 6 B league teams will be here. WE NEED LOTS OF HELP!!  Remember that all families (including pre-team!) are asked to help at at least 2-3 meets and this is an excellent chance to fulfill that obligation! We are an ALL VOLUNTEER run team and we need everyone to chip in and make this a great experience for our kids! Sign-up below.

Parent / Coach Relay: This might just be the highlight of your night! We need 2 parents/adults and 2 coaches to volunteer for the parents and coaches combined relay event. The kids really get a kick out of this, so let me know if you're available. Each leg is 25M.

4. A Meet at Rockshire, Saturday
We are looking forward to our fifth, and final, dual A meet on Saturday at Rockshire 2351 Wootton Pkwy, Rockville, MD 20850
Stay tuned for a swimmer list, theme info, and more to come later this week.

5. Long Course at North Creek, Sunday
On Sunday July 16th the North Creek Neptune's Swim Team will host about a dozen teams for our 33rd ANNUAL NORTH CREEK INVITATIONAL LONGCOURSE MEET.  For this meet we invite our local area teams, our Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) Divison Teams, and several other teams from Frederick and the local MC area. 
This is both a competitive and fun meet in which the length of each event is twice the normal length (lanes set up across pool for 50 meters, instead of 25 meters). This meet is also a fundraiser for both Gaithersburg Help and the Neptunes (via concessions and meet entry fees).  Look for a separate e-mail to come today, with more information about how you can help, either through donations for the charity raffle, or helping at the meet itself.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
