Please plan for swimmers to arrive at 4:15-4:30 and go straight to their coaches to check in. Pataskala will warm up at 4:30pm, Bexley will warm up at 5pm, and the meet will begin at 5:30pm. Swimmers will receive their names on their back once they check in with the coaches and will then be able to go warm up, but not before. Swimmers will receive their event numbers on their hands at practice Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

TEAM T-Shirt and Caps

June 10, 2014
Good morning Bexley Marlins!
There seems to be a bit of confusion about spirit wear pickup so wanted to send out an email to clarify…
ALL TEAM MEMBERS receive a TEAM T-SHIRT and CAP with their registration!
There are still about 30 families who have not picked up team t-shirts and caps for their swimmers!!!
These items will be available for pickup tomorrow at the swim meet in the concessions area (just down the hill from the diving well.) PLEASE pick up these items for your swimmers!!
The second run of shirts should be delivered tomorrow morning so anyone who has been waiting on a particular shirt size, particularly late registrants, should be able to pick their shirts up at the meet.
For those who ORDERED spiritwear items from InStitches…
* There are a few who still have not picked up their items. These orders will be available for pickup as well tomorrow in the concession area.
* Those who are awaiting backordered items, your items are expected to be delivered tomorrow morning and should be available for pick up as well. Please check in at the concession area tomorrow.
Thank you everyone and please be sure to wear your new gear to the meet tomorrow and show off that MARLIN PRIDE!!!!
