Swim Team: A Relay and Volunteer List for Tomorrow (Sunday)

Jul 9, 2011   //   by oldfarmpool   //   Swim Team  //  No Comments

Here are the details for the A Relays!  It’s a bit long, but read the whole thing.  It’s not like it’s a Russian novel.


Quail Valley

18701 Quail Valley Boulevard, Gaithersburg, Maryland

  • Route 270 to Montgomery Village Avenue
  • Right onto Mid County Highway
  • Left onto Goshen Road
  • Right onto Emory Grove Road
  • Left onto Quail Valley Drive  Left onto Quail Valley Blvd.  Pool is on the right


The Division K Posse – Kenmont, Manor Woods, Norbeck Grove, Somerset, Quail Valley


Sunday, July 10, 2011 at 9:00

Swimmers should arrive by 8:05 for warm ups (in the pool at 8:15)!  For those who want to caravan, plan on arriving at Old Farm about 7:35 for a 7:45 departure. Volunteers should arrive by 8:15 so that Jay doesn’t stress out. 😉
Parking Note – Important!

We have a limited number of “permits” to park in the lot behind the Quail Valley pool. The lot is at the end of the driveway (as opposed to the lot right next to the front door of the pool house, which is being reserved for handicapped and those with special needs).  If you do not have a permit to stick in your window then you should park along the driveway heading in (if there is space) or on the road in front of the pool (Quail Valley Blvd).

Pool Deck Note – Also Important!

As you come out of the pool house, looking at the pool in front of you, our team location is to the far right. There is no shade.  Zero. Zilch. Nada.  So bring a tub of sunblock and five gallons of water.  Those of us with canopies should bring them too.

Spirit:  Superheroes (did you see how that Stan Lee guy resurrected himself as a big time movie producer for all his Marvel characters . . . he’s gotta be worth a bazillion dollars now . . . and the guy is doing it when he’s older than dirt . . . not bad for a comic book writer . . . he may be my superhero)

Not So Funny Relays
There will be two additional relays at the end of the meet, one for parents and one for coaches.  So think about whether you want to give yourself heart failure while trying to make some parents from other pools look out of shape.  The parents relay will be all freestyle.  We need two gentlemen and two ladies (at least that’s what they said at the planning meeting).

The Fine Print . . .
(yeah it’s the same as the last email, so you can skip it, but you still have know it and live by it!)

If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes the entire tribe to run a swim meet!  Everyone who has a swimmer in the meet should expect to work at least half the meet.  Each and every parent is a crucial part of the success and timeliness of each meet!  Besides, it is fun, a great way to get in on the action, it helps the morning fly by and it beats putting your feet up, sipping a coffee and reading the Post (well, maybe not that last part, but you know what we’re getting at).  If you are not listed as a volunteer please feel free to approach Jay or Jill to let them know you are there in case we need someone to sub in for another volunteer.  We will do everything possible to make sure you can see your child swim each event they are in no matter which job you have been assigned.

Thank you in advance for your commitment to making the season fun and successful for all our swimmers!

Other Upcoming Events

B Relay Carnival  at Tally Ho (who came up with that name? are their members pirates?)

  • Sunday, July 17 at 9:00 (in the pool for warm ups before then!).

If you are assigned a position and cannot make it, please email Jay at jrmatson@aol.com as soon as possible.  (He generally takes rejection better when it’s accompanied by a jelly donut.)
