The bingo place was recently sold. From that sale a few changes were made that affect us. They will be announced in the new year as details are still being ironed out. HOWEVER – IMMEDIATELY – OLG wants all volunteers to sign the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) form
 
This form needs to be signed and submitted before Jan 31. However – for those of you doing bingos in January, 2018 – you will need to sign and submit to Helen before your bingo!!!! 
 
We will have an envelope at the pool, labeled AODA forms, there will be a few blanks in there for you to sign. Please return your signed forms in there and Helen will collect from this envelope.  We have not had time to put up yet, so if you are able to sign and fill out, send a note to Helen:   gpare@fibreop.ca to arrange submission of form.  Please read material, fill out word form and submit. 
 
Thanks for your attention to this. We will also post on the website.

Elf Extravaganza – Dec 15th, 2017

The Elf Extravaganza is an event that we put on for our swimmers every year. It is a team building activity to get all of our swimmers together to have fun, get to know each other better, race and give back to the community.  For the past 15 years that I have been the coach at TMSC the swimmers have donated over 60 gifts to children less fortunate in our community. Every swimmer is asked to bring an unwrapped gift on the 15th of December to donate to the Father Costello’s Community Center. The donated gift can be anything you wish to purchase for the donation.
 
Our annual Elf Extravaganza will take place on December 15th. This will be a sanctioned time trial as well as our Christmas Party for the swimmers. TMSC swimmers will be split into two teams, Blue and Gold. Swimmers will choose a maximum of three swims for this events. There are two components to this competition, races and team cheers. Swimmers on each team will have to come up with team cheers that reflect the team color they are on. Three swims, three team cheers. The results of the races will determine the team who scores the most amount of points in the races and the timers who are officiating at the meet will determine the team who wins the cheer competition.
 
Warm Ups for this time trial will start at 3:30pm, heats will start at 4:15pm. The pool segment will finish at 6:30 – 7:00pm.
 
After the swimming sessions swimmers will come upstairs and have a pizza dinner together. The swimmers can also participate in a gift exchange that will take place after dinner. If your swimmer would like to participate in the gift exchange they should bring a wrapped gift that is gender neutral, age appropriate for our swimmers and does not exceed a $20.00 amount.  (It is a gift exchange game that is played so you don’t know who will end up with what gift).
 
As for all TMSC Time Trials that are geared to have all of our swimmers in attendance, I will enter every TMSC swimmer into the time trial. If your swimmers will not be able to attend please email as soon as possible as I need to assign the swimmers to either the blue of gold team so that they are equally balanced.
