Thank you, Coach Bob and Coach Sal, as well as Special Assistant (for life) Carlos for pulling together a fantastic dual-meet in Entradero!
The results will be posted soon on our Website http://new.runruhs.com/meet-results/ And of course, thank you to all the volunteers who made the event go smoothly and safely. And lastly, with the generous financial support of our families who donated to the Booster Club, we were able to invite the athletes to Taco Dinner. You invested well!
Tidbit: A couple living across the street from Entradero Park saw the kids run and therefore, went into their yard to pick a huge bag of peaches. Then the not-so-young people carried it over to the field. The husband actually used to be a runner and was still wearing his estimated 1960s running shorts.
Enough celebrations as here comes your list of important events.
August 31 and September 2: Practice is on Saturday at 8 am at Golden Gove and Monday at 8 am at the school track.
September 3 at 7 pm: Please attend the parent meeting on Tuesday. The meeting is being held in a room underneath the bleachers – the ones that are in the middle of the two fields. Please bring questions you might have and cash because you can pick up your tickets for the Comedy Club (see below).
September 8 at 1:45 pm: The summer is not yet over. Come out stand-up paddleboarding. The local Olympus Board Shop on Torrance Blvd. generously supports a Fundraiser for the Team. Included are a lesson, board, paddle, life vest, and huge fun. Bring friends and family. If your athlete is coming on his/her own, make sure to sign the waiver on Tuesday. To reserve your board, please go to https://www.facebook.com/events/2912459165437572 (all students are $30 regardless of age). This is not a school-sponsored event and you are out there at your own risk. Any participant will get wet. Sunscreen, the cheapest sunglasses you have, and a water squirter from the Dollar Tree are highly recommended.
September 11 at 8 pm: Come join us at the Hermosa Comedy Club. Wear red so we can find the Redondo parents. No children will be admitted! Please purchase your tickets on Tuesday at the parent meeting. What would make this process a lot less painful is if you bring the exact cash (20$ per ticket) and email ahead of time. This is another fundraiser where we have to track the ticket numbers. In your email, please indicate if you are sponsoring a particular athlete for the Portland trip or the team in general.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
