Run for the Cure
Thank you to everyone who ran and/or supported a runner in this year’s Run for the Cure. This year we raised nearly $9000 bringing our 5 year total to over $62,000. Perfect Storm is proud to have donated $500, in part, from the sale of pink items over the last week.
Fundraiser starts today
The Mixing Spoons fundraiser kicks off today. Orders can be submitted Oct 27-30 with a pick up date of Friday, November 8. Click here for the order form: Mixing Spoons Order Form
Our Worlds teams are in this weekend (no other teams are in due to Thanksgiving) and the rest of the gym will start their choreography sessions next week. A schedule was already sent out and reminders will be posted on your team Facebook page. Please note that there is no parent viewing during choreography.
Upcoming Gym Closure
The gym is closed for regular classes and practices Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13 for Thanksgiving. We are open for regular classes and practices on Monday, October 14.
There will be no evening classes or practices on Thursday, October 31 (Our home school team will have practice.)
Please note that the gym is open for all classes and practices during all “fall breaks” and Remembrance Day.
Drop Off & Pick Up
As the weather gets cooler, we know it is tempting to wait in your vehicle outside the front door of the gym. Unfortunately this causes traffic jams in the parking lot, even when you are trying to be quick. We ask that everyone dropping off or picking up during high traffic times finds a parking spot to pull into. It is also dark at pick up time and we ask, for the safety of our younger athletes, that parents of those athletes come into the gym to get their child rather than have them walk the dark parking lot alone.
Our annual Halloween party for Storm families will be held at the gym on Saturday, October 26 from 6:30-8pm. Admission is $2 per person and all money collected will be donated to KidSport. The party will include a bouncy castle, bake sale, games, and a haunted house. Tickets are available at the Storm Seller.
First Aid Course
Do you need first aid? Perfect Storm is holding an emergency first aid CPR/AED level C course at the gym on November 11 from 9am-4pm. The cost is $105 plus GST. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking this course.
PJ Special Order & Grey Lace Up Sale
We have Perfect Storm PJs available for special purchase. Orders are due Wednesday. Complete the form to order yours: Storm PJ Order Form. This week we have a sale on our grey lace up hoodie – regular $60, on sale for $49. These are in stock at the Storm Seller.
Just a reminder that our gym showcase for prep & all-star teams will take place on Sunday, November 17. (Rec & Rainbows do not participate in Purple Reign.) Prep team performances will start at 11am and all-star teams at about 12:15pm. There will be a gym photo taken at noon. More information including a detailed schedule, will be sent out as the event gets closer. There is no charge for spectator admission to this event. The gym is closed for all classes and practices on November 17.
