Senior Led Practices on Tuesday
We will meet at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. The coaching staff will not be there due to our inservice day. The seniors will decide where we will be running. If you cannot make it Tuesday morning because of transportation issues check the training schedule and run on your own.
Wednesday 11/7 at 6:00 in the Vista Commons (the cafeteria).
Please arrive with your food by 5:45.
SignUp Genius: Please click here to see what you can bring and how you can help: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c45a8ac23a6fe3-vista1 . This year we are asking for a dedicated clean-up crew, to alleviate the stress and chaos at the end of the banquet. We are asking parents of underclassmen to consider signing up for this important job.
Dress code: There is quite a range of attire at the banquet, but the athletes generally look spiffy. Boys might wear khakis and a collared shirt and girls often wear dresses. Upperclassmen boys sometimes wear suits. There are no requirements and you should not go buy anything fancy just for this event. If your child isn't sure what to wear, tell them to ask some teammates what they are wearing. Parents wear whatever.

NXR for Newbies Meeting:
Saturday 11/10 at 4 pm, O'Sullivan home: See Email for Address
Some veteran NXR parents are hosting a meet and greet to orient the new parents. The AZ trip is super fun, but sometimes overwhelming to the first-timers. YOU WILL WANT TO COME TO THIS IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO NXR OR YOU ARE CHAPERONING FOR THE FIRST TIME. All NXR families are invited; if you're not new, then you're a vet and you have wisdom to share. Hope to see you there.
If you haven't visited the TEAM site yet, please go to http://vistanation.shutterfly.com to 1) fill out the roster page and 2) check out thousands of pictures of our runners. Upload your favorite shots to the various meets. We use these pictures for end-of-season photo books.
