Theme Week: This week (October 25-30) will be HALLOWEEN week. Please come dressed (at your last practice that week) in your favourite practice-appropriate Halloween costume.
Practice Gear store: The practice gear store from Total Spirit is still open until November 15th. It can be found by going to the pro-shop link on our website, and clicking on the link to the team store. We also have some new items in the office at the gym, come check it out!
BMO bank accounts (Free $50): As Amy Dickson mentioned in her email this morning, the Bank of Montreal is coming to our gym. If you sign up for a new bank account, they will provide you with an initial deposit of $50. A Free $50!! If you’re interested in this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know, so she can coordinate with BMO for the approximate number of participants. The date will be sometime in November.
Statements: My apologies that I did not yet send out all the statements. I will be getting to this asap. Please remember that they will be up to date with respect to payments as of the end of September 2015.
Senior Trip 2016: For everyone planning on attending the 2016 Senior Trip, I have sent out an information package of items planned to date. We are also holding a parent and athlete meeting on Sunday, November 1 from 4-5 pm at the Chocolate Lake hotel by the Armdale rotary. We decided to have it here instead of the gym so as not to disturb the practices going on. We realize Devotion’s chorography is at 5 pm, so these athletes & parents may have to leave a bit early, but we should complete the meeting within an hour. This will be to discuss the plans to date. I have also posted this information package in the FaceBook group, and I have also added it as a link on the “Parent Portal” link on our webpage.
Thanks, have a good week,
