Tis the Night Before Cracker

Tis the night before Cracker,
And all through the pool,
Decorations are hanging,
It's looking real cool!

Swimmer's are tucked,
all snug in their beds,
While visions of PB's,
Dance in their heads!

The officials are checking,
All of the gear.
You know there is time,
to still volunteer!

So come to the Place,
That is Saanich's Common Wealth,
And race PCS's Xmas Cracker,
Yes, it's our twelfth!


Count Down to Xmas Cracker is On: 4 Weeks Away!

The elves have been busy,
Checking lists twice,
But your name is not on them,
Neither naughty or nice!

So here's how to fix that,
As quick as you can.
Volunteer on the website,
Would be your best plan.

Volunteer early!
That would be right.
And you could see Tigh Na Mara,
For not one, but 2 nights!
