Thank you Cheetah Volunteers!!

I would like to give a big shout out to all the Cheetah parents who volunteered their time this past weekend! It was great to see so many past volunteers returning and new faces who had only joined the Cheetahs this year.

Some people were there all day both days, some did short shifts, some moved about and were happy to do what was needed, thank you all! Without all those parents volunteering our Meet would not have been the success it was. I had many compliments from parents, from other clubs, on how great the meet was because there were plenty of the volunteers getting things done! See you next year!
