276 [PGBSC Blog] Kamloops

I have been in touch with the Kamloops Officials director and they are looking for some officials for Friday June 8th.  I will be Refereeing and would be very proud to share the deck with other PG Officials on Friday.  Stroke, Turn, Timers.
I don't think they are looking for many, but it is always a great relationship builder when we can field a few officials at the out of town meets. 
Send me an email if you are able to officiate on Friday, and what position you would prefer.  It is always great to get experience outside of our own pool.

Hello Everyone who has signed up to do Info Pages!


If you HAVE received an email from me with your map and other pertinent information, you ARE on my list. 

If you have NOT, you are NOT. 


These are the names that I have received:


















The pallets of INFO PAGES have been delivered to my garage.  You may call me to pick them up.  I will be away at a swim meet in Vancouver this weekend (May 24th – 27th).  However, you may still get some bundles of books to deliver, but you need to contact me as I will have to coordinate times of availability with whomever is at home. 



Marilyn King



The deadline for deliveries is Friday, June 8th!  If this timeline does not work for you, there are others who may be interested in doing extra deliveries - please just let me know.



269 [PGBSC Blog] Drivers start your engines

Would you like to test drive some vehicles?  Here's your opportunity… and you can earn funds towards your fund raising levy at the same time.   Please join fellow PGBSC parents at PG Motors on Thursday, May 31st, at PG Motors (Ford, on Central) at 9:30 am.  We will be moving vehicles from the dealership to CN Centre in preparation for the Mega sale.  Then, in the afternoon on June 9th, we will be moving all the unsold inventory back to PG Motors. 

 We will meet in front of the dealership and, for those of you who are new, you will receive instructions on what is required.  You don't need to know how to drive a standard and it really is a lot of fun.  Expect to spend 4-5 hours on the 31st….less on the 9th.   If you have some time available, even if it's not the full 4-5 hours or you can only do 1 of the days, we could certainly use you!

 Please respond by Monday, May 28, 2012 via my email:  Indicate what days you can drive.

The areas will include anywhere from 750 - 1500 books that must be delivered, door to door, within a two to three week period. This fundraiser works best in teams of 3 people or more and is a excellent opportunity for the swimmers to participate in their family fundraising.  Depending on the number of people interested, more than one area may be available per family.
