2017 RSL Finals Information

Lee’s Hill Lightning Families,

 

Well – the 2017 RSL Finals are almost here!

 

I see that all our Lightning swimmers are practicing hard during this last week.

 

At the Practice with a Purpose on Monday - 59 swimmers swim more than 3,350 practice laps - WOW!!

 

It should be a very exciting meet! Anything can happen at Finals!

 

Rather than re-typing everything, I have included in this e-mail the instructions that were sent out to all the teams in our division. I have also included a very general timeline of the events.

 

There will be heat sheets for sale, and the coaches will have copies.  It would be a great help to the Clerk of Course if each of our swimmers wrote each: Event/Heat/Lane that they will be swimming before going to the Clerk of Course. Swimmers should already know their Events – they just need to find out the Heat and Lane and write it down on an arm/leg.

OVERVIEW

The meet is broken into two halves (with 3 worker’s sessions). 

Our team warms up at 7:05 AM.  Please be at the KG YMCA by 6:45 AM.

Lee's Hill Lightning Nominations and Elections

Dear Lee’s Hill Lightning Families,

 

As you know, we will have our Awards Banquet with our Annual Business Meeting next week on Sunday, August 6 at the South Pool.  It is a really fun time for our team, but it is also a really important time to meet and elect our new board members.

Our LHST board members have a maximum term of 3 years.  We have a number of board members rotating off the board this year and we will need to elect new board members to fill those vacancies. 

 

At this time, I am asking everyone to think about the following positions and to feel free to nominate yourself, or someone you know and trust, to serve on the board for the Lee’s Hill Lightning. 

This is a very important request.  Please feel free to email me your nominations by Saturday at 9:00 PM.    All nominees will go on the ballot and we will have our election on Sunday evening. 

 

The following positions are open:

 

  • Chairperson

 

  • Vice- Chair

 

  • Secretary

 

  • Concessions- 2 vacancies

 

  • Fundraising

 

  • Equipment Chair

 

  • Spirit / Recruitment

 

 

Things to consider:

 

  • The board has a 3 year maximum term. 

 

  • You don’t necessarily have to stay in the same position all 3 years

 

  • We meet once per month from January through September- usually it is the last Sunday evening of the month (unless a holiday conflicts) from 6:30-8:30 PM.

 

  • Most positions don’t take a lot of time or effort in the off season.

 

  • LHST council duties require a fair amount of time, in order to be done well, most of

which occurs from April to August.

 

 

Thank you all for sharing your children with us for our summer swim season!  Please consider being a vital part of the LHST and volunteer!  We have a great board and would love to have you join us on the board!!
