August 19, 2017 - Team Family BBQ - Alamo Creek Park, Dublin - 11:00 AM - Hello Parents! Welcome to our 2017 Cross Country Season! My name is Darby Lampi and my son Hunter Lampi is a Junior on the cross country team. Whether you are a seasoned cross country family, or new to the sport, I think we will agree that the cross country family is a close knit one. To get things started right, we wanted to invite you to a Cross Country Family BBQ at Alamo Creek Park, located on the corner of Dougherty Road and Willow Creek Drive, on Saturday August 19, 2017 right after practice, about 11:00 a.m.  It will be a great opportunity for new parents to get to know the “veterans” and the coaches better as well as the athletes to get back in sync with each other and welcome in their new teammates. Siblings are also invited to attend. We will supply burgers and veggie burgers, along with all the fixings. We ask that each of you sign up to bring either side dishes, drinks, dessert or supplies via the link  Cross Country Family BBQ Signup SheetFeel free to bring any added items. I am sure some crazy basketball will  be played, and we will have cornhole for those who may like to play something a little more low key.  There is a jungle gym and swings for little ones too. Looking forward to seeing you all there! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at darbylampi@gmail.com or by phone 510-332-7628.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on August 19. Go Gaels!
