What's Happening

July 25

Remember that today is the last day to turn in entries for the White Water, Big Kahuna and Scott Poore swim meets.  Contact coach Steve if you still need to.

Many of you have seen the Hospitality sign-up board at practice and thank you to those who have committed to one or more items.  We still have several items that are needed and here is the list of what is left.

  • Cookies
  • Pasta salad
  • French bread
  • Jumbo muffins
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Coffee cake
  • Orange juice
  • Chips
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Cucumbers
If you can commit to one or more of these items, please contact Cece (541-659-7245) by Monday evening or talk to coach Steve at practice.

July 22

Practice is cancelled tonight due to weather.  We will have the team meeting after evening practice tomorrow.  See you in the morning.


Thank you to the parents who helped with this mornings Swim-O-Rama.  Thanks to Judy and Bridgett, who helped organize and brought the wonderful "goodies" for the swimmers.  Now it is time to turn in your pledges (some turned those in today).  Please do so by July 24th so that we can order the prize(s) you have earned.

I have posted the information for the Scott Poore Memorial swim meet, for those of you that are interested in going to that event.  Remember that meet entries for the White Water Invitational (home meet), the Big Kahuna and now the Scott Poore Memorial are all due by Friday, July 25th.  I will not be taking any meet entries after that date, so get them in early if you think you might be gone around that date.

Finally, www.facebook.com/teamgpac is the new web address of our team Facebook page.  I don't believe this will change much for those of you that have already "liked" us.  It will create a quicker and easier link for those that have not.

Congratulations to those swimmers who participated in the Roseburg Summer Open this last weekend.  Everyone swam best times and showed very well for GPAC.  Also 'Well Done' to Ashlyn, Shaylyn and Tiana, who earned a Dutch Bros. gift card for having the most money pledged by Monday evening.  Remember that the Swim-O-Rama is Wednesday morning after team pictures.  Pictures are at 7:30am and Swim-O-Rama starts right after pictures are finished.  There will be a need for parents who can count laps for our swimmers, so I hope to see you there.  Finally, remember the team meeting is this evening at 7pm.  There will be a sign-up board circulating, starting tonight, for items needed at the home swim meet on August 1-3.  Please be looking for this board to see what you might be able to make and/or purchase for our hospitality crew.

Remember to get out and get pledges for the upcoming Swim-O-Rama.  The top three money amounts at evening practice on Monday get a Dutch Bros. gift card.  Swimmers must bring their pledge sheets with amounts and show them to Coach Steve in order to be eligible to win.

Good luck to our swimmers who will be attending to Roseburg Swim Meet.  Warm ups on Friday start at 10:30am.  Saturday and Sunday warm ups are 8:15am for 12 & unders and 12:30pm for 13 & overs. To get to the pool, take I-5 through Roseburg and follow the signs to Umpqua Community College.  See you there.
