Plattsmouth Swim Club - ITS HERE!

Swim Parents:

We are excited to introduce the NEW Plattsmouth Swim Club that is officially registered with USA Swimming!  After several weeks of planning, organizing and getting certified, we are happy to present to you the following information.

The Plattsmouth Swim Club (PSC) will be a year round swim club that competes with all USA Swimming Guidelines.  All swimmers who participate will need to be registered with USA Swimming.  In addition to being registered with USA Swimming, you will also need to register with the PSC.  The fees for each are outlined below.

PSC Monthly Club Fee - $30.00
USA Swimming Yearly Registration Fee  - $64.00

PSC will be using software to register for all swim meets.  This software & website will also be used to send out communication to all swim families. Swimmers are not required to attend swim meets but strongly encouraged.  Each swim meet will have an entry fee and a fee for each event that the swimmer chooses to compete in.  Additional details on swim meets will be given at the parent meeting.  

Registration Dates & Parent Meeting

Thursday, August 18th - 5 - 7 pm at Plattsmouth Community Center
Wednesday, August 24th - 5 - 7 pm at Plattsmouth Community Center
Parent Meeting - August 24th - 7 pm at Senior Center - PCC

Here are some answers to your FAQ:

1.  Practice will be Tuesday & Thursday's from 7 - 8:30 pm at Plattsmouth Community Center.  Additional practices will be added to the schedule as the team grows in both swimmers and coaches.  

2.  Practice will be run by Head Coach Missy Berry who is trained and certified through USA Swimming.

3.  You can join the PSC at any point during the year but the registration for both USA Swimming and the club must be done for each when you join.  You do NOT have to join Plattsmouth Community Center.

4.  Your USA Swimming membership will need to be renewed each year the swimmer participates.  Sept 2016 - Dec 2017 is considered this next year.

5.  Club membership is required for each swimmer.  

6.  Each family in the PSC will be required to participate in two fundraisers during the Fall / Spring year.  One in late fall and one in early Spring.  The fundraisers currently under consideration are swim-a-thon's.  Each swimmer will be asked to raise or donate a minimum of $ 75 to the club.

7.  After your initial registration, PSC will use a software system to collect monthly fees and fees for participating in swim meets.  This payment can be connected to either your checking account or to a credit card.

8.  Each swimmer will be required to have goggles, swim cap, fins and a water bottle.  A bulk order for fins will be placed after registration.  Snorkels will also be required but a bulk purchase will be made after fall swim-a-thon.  As the club begins to acquire funds, the club will purchase additional training equipment for swimmers use.

Ready to join?  Here are your next steps:

1.  Complete the attached PSC Club Registration form and bring it to one of the Registration nights with your first months registration fee.

2.  Complete the USA Swimming Registration form and bring it to one of the  Registration nights with your yearly registration fee.

3.  At registration, you may make payment with either a check or cash.  After your initial payments, monthly dues will need to be connected to either a checking account or credit card.  This will be set up through a link that will be sent out to you.  Club payment and USA Swimming Registration Fee Payment MAY be a combined check at registration.

4.  Bring a COPY of your birth certificate with you to registration that can be kept on file with your application.

We are super excited to get this going.  If you have specific questions now, please email Stephanie and/or Missy and we will be happy to answer them.  We will have lots of additional information for you at the parent meeting.

LOFTE BIRTHDAY BASH - AUGUST 13
 
2016 marks the Lofte's 40th season. We're celebrating our "Ruby Jubilee" in style with a informal birthday party on Saturday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m. We're charging a small admission fee of $5, but larger donations will be gladly accepted.

The Lofte has grown from a small group of locals who put up a play in a neighbor's barn to an important regional arts center. Literally thousands of individuals have graced the stage and/or attended one of our events. We're celebrating all of our accomplishments with cake, ice cream and loads of Lofte entertainment.You will see familiar faces from our forty-year history as Lofte alumni treat you to some of your favorite show tunes!  

Purchase tickets in advance or at the door. We'd love to see as many of our friends as possible. Come and celebrate our rich history and share the evening with good friends. See you at the barn!

STATE CHAMPS

LBD2016

On Saturday, July 23, the Lofte participated in the Nebraska Association of Community Theatres Festival in Minden, NE. The association holds a biennial play competition and 2016 saw the Lofte walking away with the top prize! The Lofte cast and crew not only won Outstanding Production, but Doug Rothgeb won Supporting Actor. Silvia Conley won Supporting Actress and Nick Haussler won Outstanding Set Design.

The play, "Shakespeare's a D*ck," is a competition piece written by Mark Kenneally. The comedy is the story of red-neck named Wally who curses the name of Shakespeare and opts to attend a monster truck rally instead of "As You Like It." Wally soon feels the wrath of the Bard as he wakes the next morning finding he can only speak in Shakespearian verse!

Congratulations to the cast, crew and Director Allison Bauers! They have advanced to the regional competition which will be held in April 2017 in Brainerd, MN.

 

THE RED VELVET CAKE WAR

rvCAKEBy Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten
Sept 9 - 11 & 15 - 18
Thurs-Sat 7:30 p.m.
Sundays 2:00 p.m.
Tickets are $19

The Verdeen cousins (Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette) could not have picked a worse time to schedule their family reunion. They face an uphill battle on the hottest day in July smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. Soon a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeen's descend upon their southern town and things spin hilariously out of control. You will wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

This production runs for seven dates over the course of two weekends. Be sure to make your reservations and don't miss this family-friendly hootenanny!
