Scrip One day every week (usually Monday) our Scrip coordinator Alice Cox is in the office to take Scrip orders. This is similar to buying gift cards to be used at your favorite stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc. She will have on hand the "regular" scrip that people order frequently. Otherwise she will place the order on Tuesday, and within two weeks you should have your scrip. In some cases, you may have to plan ahead so you have it in time to use when you need it. Click here for a listing of the merchants available in the Midwest United States.
Scrip Magazine Scrip is now offering magazine subscriptions, as well. You can get these through Alice, as well. You have two choices: For $20 choose from 40 titles, or For $50 get People Magazine. You will receive a certificate that you can fill out for the magazine of your choice. Then mail it in. The club will receive 50% back by going through Scrip. Click here for a listing of magazines available. Order for yourself, or as gifts for friends and family!

Pumpkins on the Petunias
Just a quick but heartfelt Thank you! to everyone who made this October 4th event a successful one to help raise money to support our Barracudas! We had a great day this year at the festival, parade and celebration for our military. And we have all our parents, swimmers, and sponsors to thank who dedicated their time, energy, supplies and food to help us! And we also have to thank all those who attended this year's event that helped to make it special and rewarding!
The Berlin Barracuda Swim Club will again be sponsoring some dances this year at the Berlin Middle School. These dances will be open to all middle school-age children from the city's three schools: Berlin Middle School, St. John's, and Berlin Catholic. We will announce the dates of the dances very soon.
What We Need From YOU!!
CHAPERONS We will need as many of the middle school parents as possible for chaperoning each of the dances. More parents = better supervision. These dances also provide a great chance for us parents to socialize outside the pool! So if any of you other BBSC parents are interested in helping out by chaperoning, you're more than welcome to join us on these nights!!
SNACKS Domino's always provides us pizzas to sell at a very reasonable price. We also need parents to provide other types of snacks that we can sell, as well. Selling extra snacks and soda pop reduces our overhead expenses for sponsoring the dances -- and these HUNGRY kids really look forward to the goodies being available!! The kinds of things that have sold well in the past are cookies, brownies, bars, puppy chow, and snack mix.
The dances are an easy way to fund raise a SERIOUS amount of money for only a couple hours effort. The money goes toward team expenses, such as assistant coaching costs and team relay event fees at meets. So, please, help out in any way you can. Every effort is appreciated!!
