Officials, Timers/Take-Off Judges and Other Volunteers

The MCSL All Star Relay Meet requires the staffing of two full sets of Officials, Timers, Take-Off Judges and Other Volunteers since the meet is run in two sessions – Section I and Section II. This meet is a unique event in that each Division swims approximately the same number of Relay teams. As a result, we need All Divisions to solicit volunteers and help staff the meet.

The All Star Officials/Volunteers Coordinator for each Division will be soliciting volunteers to work as Officials (Referee, Starter and Stroke & Turn Judges) as well Timers/Take-Off Judges/Marshals. If you wish to work as an official, please contact the competition committee at [email protected] with the section you will be attending, your preferred assignment and your team affiliation. All other volunteers are asked to sign up using the following links:

Rays Party
Outdoor Sundeck
Start: 5:30 PM
End: 7:30 PM

Activity: Shirt Decoration

During this Friday's potluck, we will be doing shirt decoration! We'll use fabric spray, fabric paint, and puffy paint to create rays-inspired designs on clothing. What you will need to bring:

  • A T-shirt (or other clothing item). This could also be the shirt that you did tie-dye on, or a different shirt. I'd recommend a plain shirt instead of a Rays shirt so you have more room to decorate, but the back of a Rays shirt will also work. Dark or light colored clothing will both be okay since we have various colored paint. If your swimmer has friends the team, you could buy a multi-pack of plain shirts as a cost-effective solution.
  • A piece of cardboard to put inside the shirt while decorating to prevent wrinkling or colors bleeding through. Previously, we tried sharing cardboard pieces but it took a while since the cardboard needs to stay in the shirt until the paint dries. The cardboard should fit inside the T-shirt when laying flat. See this link for an idea of what it is used for.

What to Bring: Shirt to decorate (can be shirt that was tie-dyed)
