Updates and reminders are below:
As soon as possible Meet Availability will be in the portal for the Middle Atlantic Gold Mid-Winter Classic, the Middle Atlantic Silver Mid-Winter Classic, and the CBST Winter Festival. As always, until you receive email notification that these meets are ready, do NOT do anything in your portal. Unfortunately at this time the portal is experiencing technical issues and the display is incorrect. The anticipated deadline to indicate availability for these meets is Monday, December 12th at 11:59 p.m. so we are working to get them into the portal properly as soon as possible. Please keep an eye on email over this meet weekend for updates. Also, please use the meet sheets on the CBST website at this time to determine what you’d like to put in for availability for each of these three meets. This way, you may use the information in the meet sheets and any new qualifying times from this weekend to be ready to indicate availability when the portal is ready.
· Due to afternoon high school meets next week that will not conclude by 5:30 p.m., age group practices will be modified on the following dates. See the CBST website calendar for exact times on each of these days for your swimmer’s practice group.

· All groups, remember to check the calendar daily to be sure you know of any practice changes. Each change may not be included in the weekly emails. Flash, note the posted unusual time for Tuesday, December 13th.

COMMUNICATIONS / MEETINGS AND BILLING:
Thank you to all the parents who attending the Swimming 101 meeting on Monday with Coach Paul. Due to a last minute situation, we were not able to have a member of the administrative staff at the meeting so we do not have notes from this specific night, however, attached are last year’s notes with any modifications needed from Coach Paul. Also, we understand that there were perhaps some unanswered questions related to the administrative side of the meet entry process – if you have such questions, please email them to Julie Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, December 12th. Julie will not respond individually but will pull answers to all questions together and they will be included in next week’s update to benefit everyone.
December bills were emailed on Wednesday and are due by 12/25 – please get you bill paid early so it doesn’t get overlooked at this very busy time of year!
Have a great day!
