  • We will meet in the upper parking lot at 4:00 and caravan over to the pool.  If anyone needs a ride I can accommodate four.  If you re able to drive and can take a few divers, let us know.
  • Meet theme - Tie dye Hippie and/or Cuda Logo clothing.  The groovier the better.
  • Commonwealth gets the boards from 5:00-6:00.  This is an opportunity for the kids to get some practice dives in before the meet. The meet starts promptly at 6:00.
  • They do not have a full snack bar (ice cream, chips etc.) but there are a few places around that deliver, such as Domino's.  There is an Arby's as well.  So plan dinner on your own..
