May 14 - Riptide Share Night at Pizza Ranch from 4pm to 8pm.  We are looking for volunteers to help.  Shifts will be from 4-6 and 6-8.  Volunteers will help by greeting customers and helping to clear tables, much like the Culvers share night. Please let us know if you are able to help.  You may also sign up online by logging into your account, clicking on schedule, then click on "Job Sign Up" for the Pizza Ranch Share Night.

Other News

  • Swim Clinic - thank you for your understanding regarding the temporary closure of the indoor pool.  Hopefully the issue will be repaired in a timely manner and swim clinic will resume next week. 
  • Culvers Share Night - Thank you to all the volunteers and those who attended the Riptide Share Night at Culvers.  We received over $600 for our efforts.  Thank you everyone!
  • Concession & Volunteer Sign Ups - Many have been asking when will these open up?   We had a meet scheduling conflict that has delayed opening of the sign ups.  This is very close to being resolved.  A separate email will be sent with instructions on how sign up for concessions and meet jobs.  Thank you all for your patience as we work to figure this out.  

I think that covers it for now.  The start of the season is approaching fast.  We are looking forward to a fun season.  Thank you all for being a part of the Riptide Swim Team.

Thank you

Michele and Jason
