Great job this weekend to everyone.  Thank you to everyone who helped get boats down, drive kids, chaperone and coach (Mike).

There was a lot of gear moving between cars this weekend.  If you have gear that is not yours please bring it to practice tomorrow so we can get it back to the right person.  Ria needs hers ASAP if you have it.  She is looking for the following.

  • A sleeping bag in a long, thin black stuff sack
  • A sleeping pad, black, in a bag
  • A folding chair, black and shiny blue, in a bag
  • A grocery bag containing a string of green decorative lights and other things

Concussion Baseline Test


New this year everyone needs to get a concussion baseline test.  This way when you get hit in the head we will have a baseline test to compare with.  The test will be performed after school next Wednesday Sep 20th at Sehome in computer labs 109 and 110.   The test will be performed by the Sehome Athletic Trainer Maggie, so please find and check in with her when you get there.  I need everyone to do this test no matter what grade you are in or what school you attend.  Everyone not from Sehome just get there as soon as you can after school.

If you can not make it next Wednesday please let me know.

Parents / Sailors,

This weekend is Octoberfest.  I will be sending out a more detailed email later this week, but to start I need to confirm who is going, boats, driving, etc.  I only need confirmation if any of the following is NOT correct.  ALSO, I am still looking for a place for the team to stay this weekend.  If you have any relatives with a large basement that could hold 25 or so kids please let me know.  Because we have so many that want to go and limited boats, trailers, etc, I don't anticipate everyone being able to attend.  I will let everyone know what the final team is once I work out the details.  Until then, please double check the following lists.

Who wants to go and the boat they plan to sail:
Cedric - 29er
Lera - 29er
Sammy - Own Opti
Jack - Own Laser
Emma P. - Own Laser
Ria- BYC Laser
Nat - Own Laser
Lauren - FJ for everyone below.
