RIPTIDE TEAM BANQUET: The Riptide Team Banquet is this Saturday from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Lakeville North High School. We are excited to gather as one team and celebrate the past 2023-24 Short Course Season. The banquet will be catered by Las Tortillas, and we are ensuring we have options for all dietary needs. We’ll have a short presentation of awards as well as ending the night with some dancing. Please note, we are requesting everyone to dress up – think of appropriate attire to wear at a wedding. Sorry kids, no joggers allowed. We are looking for crayon donations to be used at the banquet. Please bring some if you can! Lastly, a huge thank you to all families who volunteered at various activities this season for fundraising for this banquet. We’re all excited to gather and celebrate.
