Dues, Pool Closings

This is a reminder to be sure you've paid your February payments, and get ahead for March. Also, this is a reminder that the pool will be closed for mid-day and evening Friday swims, as well as Saturday morning, March 1-2. The pool will be closed for all practices March 7-9 for Sectionals. Please volunteer for Sectionals: we need timers in a big way for all sessions! Denise Smart has sent out emails with instructions for registration. See you at the pool! George Villarreal

Let's EAT!!!

Hello always hungry swimmers! Let's eat out Tuesday night, Feb 26, at 'Top That Pizza' located at Tulsa Hills (the shopping center located off HWY 75, between 71st and 81st). Our friends at the Jenks Trojan Swim Club are having a fundraiser at 'Top That Pizza' Tuesday evening from 5 to 9 pm. 20% of sales to customers who mention the Jenks swim club fundraiser will be donated to the JTSC. We all like to eat, right? So why not support a good cause... our age group swimmers! The evening group can go after practice, 7:45 ish. The rest of you can wait to eat later with us, or go earlier if you like. Get together with your swimming buddies, bring your families. All are welcome. And you don't have to be a Jenks swimmer! Just don't forget to mention Jenks Trojan Swim Club fundraiser when you order. I believe there will be representatives from the club at the restaurant until 9 pm. Look for people in 'Jenks Swimming' t-shirts. See you at the pool! Denise Tulsa Masters Swim Club

HELP!HELP!HELP! Let's support our sport!

Calling all Swimmers, friends of swimmers, and anyone interested in doing a good deed! The time is now! I sent a version of this email a couple of weeks ago. The High School State 5A/6A State Swimming Championships were a huge success last weekend. Thanks to all of you who gave your time. We are now down to the wire! Two more big meets at the Jenks pool coming up on consecutive weekends. We are once again asking for your help. Please know that any time you can give will be greatly appreciated by George, the Jenks Trojan Swim Club officers and parents, and especially the kids participating in these meets! Let's support the sport of swimming and do our part to make these meets a success! *USA Swimming Oklahoma Age Group Championships, March 1- 3, 2013 *USA Swimming Region VIII Sectionals Swim Meet, March 7- 10, 2013 Below is the link to the online sign up for both meets. Various shifts are available so don't think you have to be there all day, unless you want to! If you prefer to sign up 'in person', George and Emily Forbes (volunteer coordinator for JTSC) will be at the pool this week to help you. The online sign up will also show you who else has committed and when they are working. Below are the instructions for Masters swimmers to volunteer for the Age Group meet and the Sectionals meet. There is special need for volunteers in the following areas: • Hytek and console operators. • Volunteers for week day sessions • Volunteers with swim meet experience to work as a head timer or runner at all sessions. Of course, the regular, behind the block, timers are also needed. Best seat in the house! And we will train you if haven't been a timer before. No worries! It is easy and fun!
