      Good afternoon,
      This is Cathy Riddle. Our registration system has been down for a few days now after a system upgrade - so if you would like to attend the swim test this evening you will need to register at the door. Also, please let your Troop know you are attending so the adults responsible for conducting the test remain on-site until you arrive.

      We already have 43 scouts registered, most of which are from Troop 35. I will be increasing the max of the class to 50, but would like to have no more than this. :-)
      The Department of Parks and Recreation is very greatful for your continued support of our Scouting Program. If there is anything else we can do for you, don't hesitate to ask!
      Cathy Riddle

      Dale City Rec Center offers BSA swim tests in preparation for summer camp. See below. 

      Begin forwarded message:

      Courtesy reminder that Cathy Riddle has set up another BSA swim test for 9 May.  Most of Troop 1390 is complete, but some may need to still complete their swim test prior to summer camp.  Link below has information on signups.  If not, can call DCRC at 703-670-0799 about availability. 

      Cathy Riddle set up another BSA Swim Test for 9 May 7-9pm at Dale City Rec Center.  Cost is $5.00. It says age 10-19 but Cathy Riddle confirmed today that system should let adults in too.  May update ages in a few days on screen. If not, be more than young at heart for the signup! Cathy confirmed adults are ok to take test. Adults going to summer camp should take test as well if they are going to be at pool/lakefront.  Many thanks to Arnold Phillips for maintaining the communications with Cathy! She is doing a super job setting up scouting opportunities at DCRC.  Link to find swim test event at DCRC.


      Another BSA swim test opportunity is on 8 June 1pm-430pm at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, VA.  Cost is $2.00.  Outdoor pool.  Aquatic Cmte Handout Notes has details for signup.  I plan to be at this one too for monitoring/record keeping (it is also prac app for anybody doing BSA Lifeguard Course too!). Signup deadline is 2 June.
