The Aquadogs are planning on walking (or riding) in the Truman Homecoming parade on Saturday, October 20th.  The parade begins at 9:00am, and line-up will be around 8:15am.  We are also tentatively planning an Intersquad Meet at the Pershing Natatorium pool beginning around 10:30am, details to follow.  The parade ends at Pershing, so this is pretty convenient - we march down Franklin Street and end at Stadium Drive!  (See ROUTE)  

It has been our tradition to give out inexpensive swim-related items so please bring anything you might have to donate...  swim noodles, goggles, caps, buckets, toys, old swim magazines, lifesavers, gummy fish, etc. are all very appreciated.  Family members are welcomed and encouraged to walk with the swimmers too!  Everyone is asked to wear either Aquadog apparel or something black, grey, purple, or white, or Truman-themed if possible, and remember to dress warmly!

Parents, we would suggest dropping off your swimmer and any accompanying family members at the parade line-up location (tba), and then parking in the lot on Franklin Street, just south of Patterson, that is across from the back entrance to Pershing (see PARKING MAP).  You can then easily enter Pershing from the west door and the pool locker rooms will be down the hall to your right.  (There will be some transition time for snacks, changing, etc. before the meet begins.)

Stay tuned for more details. . .
