Claremont Lacrosse - Weekly Update Oct 21 - 25
Hello all – hope weekends were good. Info about this week, screamfest and the Spartan Shootout.
This week will be a fun and exciting time of Halloween fun with the schools annual Screamfest. It takes place on Wed and Thur night this week with its famous haunted walk (very scary – trust me), midway games, Vortex tunnel, food, and prizes. It’s a fantastic school and community event and one that I hope all of the guys attend (sounds like Claremont kids are going Thur night). Tickets are $10 and available all week at lunch. It is definitely an experience and full value.
If your son didn’t tell you they were a big part and huge help of the set up of the event on Fri helping bring 5 truckloads of Halloween ‘stuff’ from storage to the school’. It was awesome how well they did and we will be doing the same this Fri when it’s over deconstructing and taking all back. It’s a Pro D Day and we will look to get this done from 10-4:00 that day. In addition if there are any parents available Friday morning to help with some of the more technical deconstruction and use of tools that would be great. Let me know if that is a possibility Fri (Oct 25) morning
Jr class will have a challenge as we are hosting the election and Screamfest. That leaves us with few places to be and it is going to rain. We will either be in the weight room or will be outside and will do a hot chocolate run (bring $2 or $3).To be safe please bring cleats and runners as well as prepared to dress for rain
Sr class will be strength training in weight room
Tues to Thur -
Both classes will be doing lacrosse. If bussing is available we will start this week by going to Lochside Turf. Possibly Tues and almost certain on Thur
For this to work best it’s easiest if the jr class can be dropped off or arrange to go to turf for 8:45/50. Bussing is arranges to transport the students back to school at 10:00.
The sr class has many guys who can and want to drive. To do this they will need to fill out the form 3040 D as well as get their abstract done online. (found on our website under the parent tab and volunteer section – take 3-5 minutes)
Fri (Pro D) -
As noted above will need all guys for 2-3 hours of help to help get material back to storage. I’m guessing 11ish to 2:00 but will know more as we get closer and will tell the boys.
(Not that I feel this why to do it but…the lacrosse program does benefit financially from the event)
I apologize for not having this out sooner but have been having a difficult time with UVic securing fields. It’s still not 100% but I’m confident all will work out. The dates are Nov 29/30. I will have a schedule out by mid Nov so all can sign up for the volunteer times. The 29th will be our annual Fri Night Lights which has become a bit of senior night for our gr 12’s and their parents. In addition we run a great program and there is an opportunity for $$ to be raised directly for the player/families. Cheryl will be sending out more information and the sponsorship letter on that early this week.
