The HRCA 4th of July 5K is this Wednesday. This is not a mandatory team event and is completely optional. Anyone who wants to race on Wednesday to test their current fitness, break up the monotony of summer training, or just have fun with your teammates should sign up. This should be low pressure if you decide to participate and make sure that you have fun! Race details and registration can be found on the HRCA's event website:

Team Carpool List
If you are interested in sharing your information for the team carpool list and did not sign up or attend the parent meet-and-greet, please be in touch with Michelle Baade ASAP. She is coordinating that effort and wants to send out the information soon: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is strongly encouraged for parents of non-drivers or newer drivers, to help with off-campus practices, team dinners and meets. You can always add your name later as well. This information will only be shared with others on the list.
Vista Nation Shutter Fly Account
We've posted some pictures from Thursday on our Shutterfly team site, so we can start learning names: http://vistanation.shutterfly.com/. Sorry, not all guests were captured before they left. Next time! The very first time you log onto our team site, you'll be prompted to request permission to access. It's a closed group, for the privacy of our athletes and families.
After you get on the site, go to "Pictures and Videos" and you'll see several years' worth of albums for both XC and track. The parent meeting photos will be posted at the top.
You'll also see a "Roster" tab at the top. If your child is participating in the fall please consider filling out a profile for your family, even if it's just names. This is completely optional but it will help us learn runners' and parents' names quicker; not everyone wants to share contact information. To add a profile, scroll to the bottom of the roster and you'll see the option to "Add Player." Please put graduation year where it asks for your runner's number (see example under Rouse). Eventually, you'll be encouraged to upload a picture of your child, but NOT NOW. There is a glitch with the upload tool; I've contacted Shutterfly and they're working on it. More on Shutterfly in the fall...
