Good evening Otter Family!
Mark your calendars for March 26th! We are looking to bring back an old Otter tradition- the Otter Outing! In past years, Otter families used to get together to play 18 holes of golf and then gathered afterwards to socialize. This was always a fun day to spend with swim friends off the pool deck.
While some details are still being finalized, we need to get an idea of the number of people interested in golfing. We are looking at either Fairview, Pine Meadows, or Tree Top for golf- we're hoping to keep it as affordable for families and as close as possible. Golf is open to anyone who enjoys playing 18 holes- Moms, Dads, and kids. If you are interested in golfing, please reply to this email by Wednesday evening with the number of golfers. We will look into where we can get tee times once we know the number of golfers.
Then, all swimmers and families will meet at the Cleona playground that afternoon. This will be a chance for winter families to pick up their team gift and for summer families to see swim friends and for all to get excited for summer swimming! The team will bring either cake or donuts (of course!) and we'll send out a sign up for other desserts, fruits, veggies, and drinks. We will send out a time once we know the tee times, but estimating around 1pm or so.
We are looking foward to celebrating a successful winter season (even without a home pool!) and anticipating a fun summer season!
See you on March 26th!
-LVST Board and Coaches
Hello again Otter families,
We sent out a previous email letting you know about our Otters day coming up this Saturday. Here are the details for the afternoon. We will be meeting at the Cleona playground around 1pm. We will have the Winter team gift, ribbon boxes, Otterwear for sale, and of course food. It is a day to celebrate the end of the winter season and a chance for the summer team to see each other again. We are minimizing the food to just snacks, drinks and of course desert. The team will be bringing cake or cupcakes so we are asking otters to signup for one of the other items. The signup is https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0B45ABAC23A6FE3-otters please reapond ASAP to the RSVP (include how many family members are coming) and what item you will be bringing. We need to know how much desert to bring!!!
We will be outside so dress accordingly. Feel free to bring balls, frisbees, cards, games etc... to play with your Otter friends. All Otters and their families are welcome.

Swimmers can hang their mask on the hook or bring a ziplock bag to put their mask in and then hang the bag. Coaches and officials may remove their masks while on deck in order to perform their responsibilities. Spectators and volunteers are required to wear a mask inside the building.
