Piedmont Middle Parents & Runners - Cross Country Team
I am back from vacation, a little jet lagged and tired but looking forward to the championship meets. I would like to thank everyone for taking care of things while I was gone, it sounds like things went well in my absence.
First, regarding Fenton's.  We will run there from Piedmont and will arrive around 4:00 p.m.  The plan is to have a limited menu, there will be just three options, a petite sundae for $4.12, a regular sundae for $7.50, and a 2 scoop-2 topping sundae for $10.  Any child using a gift card must order a 2 scoop sundae to keep things as simple as possible.   If you are paying by cash, please bring the exact amount.  If you want to pick your child up at Fenton's, that is fine.  One of the coaches will drive there with the backpacks for any kids who will be leaving directly from Fenton's.
Next, our championship meets are next week and this is the finale for us.  It is important that every child who can run in these meets be there, you never know what can happen, and the meet can be decided by the slimmest of margins.  The top 10 runners in each race are suppose to receive a trophy and every child will get a participant ribbon.  As was mentioned in the last bulletin, we would like to do a walk through of the course for each of the championships on Saturday.  Coach Steven will do Joaquin Miller at 1:00 p.m. and I will do Prospect Sierra at 1:00 p.m.  Please let me or Steven know if you would like to participate, it will take 30 minutes or less for the walk through and I will meet you there.  To make this work for me and Steven, we need at least 5 kids or more to plan to participate. We will confirm with you whether or not the walk through is taking place once we have the responses.  
Third, I understand some 6th graders have developed whooping cough.  The symptoms I understand are similar to a cold and you should be aware that this has taken place.  I hope all the kids will be healthy and ready to run their best next week.
Finally, check our website for results about the meet at GG Fields.  Pictures are available at:
Any questions about the above, let me know.  Thanks.
