Spring 2017 Garage Sale

Mark your calendars for the Annual Blue Wave GARAGE SALE!

Saturday, April 29th from 8 am – noon

This is a fundraiser for the Balcones Woods Swim Team. By giving a donation of $5 (or more!) we will:
1) Place your address on a map that is located at the entrance to the neighborhood.
2) Put a balloon on your mailbox the morning of the sale
3) Put ads on Craigslist notifying the public

To clarify, you get to keep any money that you earn from the garage sale, but Blue Wave raises money through your participation fee of $5. If you are interested in joining the garage sale, please let me know DIRECTLY via email (below) and mail/drop off your fee to Matt and Christy Risinger.  Email the Webmaster if you need their contact info.  Thanks!

Blue Wave Registration

Are you a kid in Balcones Woods?  Come to the Pool this Sunday April 2 for the 2017 Blue Wave Registration.

Any Balcones Woods resident’s child or grandchild, who is younger than 19 on May 1, 2017, has some swimming skills (can do freestyle), has no separation anxiety, and is willing to follow group direction, is eligible to swim for the Blue Wave.

To see the full schedule – click here.

The first two weeks of practice are probationary for beginning swimmers. Coaches will have the final determination of a swimmer’s readiness. Children who are unable to continue after the first two weeks will be offered a refund. There will be no additional refunds for any reason.

If you have any questions please email Michelle Manning at bwpres@gmail.com or visit the Blue Wave Swimtopia Page.

The first Team practice will be May 1, that’s a Monday, folks.  See the rest of the 2017 schedule here

2017 Balcones Woods Easter Egg Hunt

Our annual Balcones Woods Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday April 8th at 10:30 AM. The Easter Bunny will be there for photos!

We will have 4 different areas for hunting, separated by age range:

  •  0-2 years
  • 3-4 years
  • 5-6 years
  • 7-8 years

The little ones (0-2 years) will be hunting for empty plastic eggs and little containers of bubbles, the rest of the areas will have eggs filled with candy.  The prize table is filled with trinkets; There will be many eggs filled with coupons for items at the prize table. (BW philosophy: If a child wants to participate, they are not too old! Our 7-8 age range is our smallest group, so your 9 or 10 year old is welcome to hunt if they’d like to.)

Come to the commons area a bit early to gather and visit with neighbors, and the hunt will start PROMPTLY at 10:30!  If your family hasn’t participated before, know that the hunt will be over quickly, so don’t be late.  Also, if anyone wants to help with set up (it’s quick work and teens/pre-teens are welcome) – we will plan to be at the commons area at 9:15 to get everything out and ready.

HAPPY HUNTING BALCONES WOODS!!!   

Signed,

Your Youth Social Committee
