Mid-Week Mail from the Monarchs 12/14/16

Important Things to Do This Week!

  1. Please bring money for coaches’ gifts and put in folder labeled holiday party or give directly to Mandy Elmer by Thurs Dec 15th
  2. Plan to attend the Regional Meet Parent Meeting at either 5pm when you drop off your gymnast for the holiday party or at 6pm before you pick up your gymnast. It will be held in to Aquatic Club Room and shouldn’t be more than 30min, but will be filled with important information.
  3. Sign up on the upcoming SUG to volunteer or bring something to the Monarch Holiday Party. (We will work it out so that volunteers can take turns going to the parent meeting)

Holiday Party Dec 16th 5-6:30pm:

  • The party will take the place of practices that date.
  • There will be a holiday gift exchange between the gymnasts. Please have your gymnast bring a $10 present for another gymnast their same age.

New Leotard Sale:

  • If you need a last minute gift or your gymnast just needs a new leo, I will be running the New Leo Sale one last day this Sat Dec 17th from 9am-11:30am. Spread the word 🙂

Volunteer Opportunities for Team Events:

  • The board is looking for people to Chair 2 events coming up:

o   National Chair- Lead parent information meeting tentatively on Feb 15th (date can be changed to accommodate chairperson). Put together some housing information. Work with others to plan a couple fun events for the girls/families in Savannah.

o   Recognition Ceremony Chair- Head a committee to secure a location, plan food and decorations, get volunteers to set up, work during and clean up.

Regional Championships – Mariellen
We are looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday, Dec. 16th during the Christmas Party for a mandatory All Parent Meeting.  We will be meeting in the Aquatic Room.  Please plan on attending after you drop off your child at 5:00 or a half hour before pick up at 6:00.  We’ll only take a half hour of your time but will be sharing key information.
It is expected that each family will volunteer for at least one pre-meet task.  Attached is a list of all the tasks available.  Guidance will be provided for each task.  They vary in the amount of time and responsibility. Some tasks are needed now and others after the new year begins.  Please review and be ready to sign up this Friday for at least one position.  Be aware that this is in addition to set up/clean up and volunteering during the Regional Championships.  Everyone’s involvement is necessary to make this a success.
Below is the task list for you to review and make your selection.
