News and Announcements

Virtual Trivia Night will Thursday, August 20 at 7:00. For $20, bring as many minds into your Zoom screen as you want. This is a great family bonding experience, and it’s a ton cheaper- and safer- than going to see a crummy movie at the cinema! There are questions for all ages, and it’s a chance to see swimming friends again before school starts. Apparently Russ Yonce is very, very confident, so beating him should be a significant incentive to play! The link is below, and you can pay in a variety of ways!

And why not help support the team by purchasing a snack grab bag? Each bag includes four drinks, four individual bags of chips, four bags of Skittles, and a surprise. Two random bags will include a coupon for a free pizza from Papa Johns. Bags are $10 each, which includes delivery to the local Ashland area! Speaking of pizza, why not order pizza for Trivia Night from Papa Johns and use the team’s code: ASHLANDSWIM?

One more thing: You’ll need to download the SpeedQuizzing Live app to play. You can get it from the App Store and from whatever the equivalent is for Androids. The DJ, Matt, will give time to do this, but why not have it ready to go!

Hoping to see you there…
