Sum-mer-time, and the Boosting is Easy!

Where in the world is Costa T&F?Closing Out 2012 
Forgive the tardiness in this end-of-season wrap-up. I’ve been busy helping the Kings win the Stanley Cup! Exhausting, but worth it, right? Here you go:

Thank YOU! We are very appreciative of all the hours, ideas and income you directed to Costa T&F this spring. We had a great season, both on and off the Track. Here are some last details:

Next Year’s Big Changes: If you are involved in other Booster Clubs at Costa, you already know that there will be big organizational and fundraising changes in the coming school year. More information will be coming in the summer, but in a nutshell, all Booster Clubs will now be responsible for paying for all coaches and transportation. We will be asking for an increased donation, but MBAF will no longer ask for one separately. So, instead of a summertime donation to MBAF along with your athletic packet, you will now be asked only to donate directly to your athlete’s sports booster program. We’ll let you know when that all gets worked out!
Donation Receipts: If you would like a receipt for your donations to T&F, please email Mary Massey and let her know. Click HERE
Next Year Needs: We have a great Board lined up for next season, (check the website later in the summer for a list of all our Board Members) and we will be soliciting for volunteer signups during the season, but we still need a few more hands for the following areas:
-Corporate Fundraising: Perfect for the sales & marketing gurus among us (or those who have the chutzpah to dial the phone and ask for money), we need a couple of folks to head up our business sponsor program.
-Snack Snand Co-Chairs-In-Training: We need a couple of folks to ‘understudy’ and partner with our current chairs, both of whom will have seniors next season. Need to be available at 2 pm on meet days (or, if a pair of folks work together, one should be available)
-Lead Photographer: someone to coordinate getting all the events photographed and the photos posted online. Also, to put together a slideshow for the Banquet at the end of the season.
-Volunteer Scheduler: someone to manage the online VolunteerSpot. Can be done remotely.

Bay League Three-Peat Shirts: If you were at the Banquet, you saw those awesome t-shirts awarded to Boys’ Varsity in honor of winning Bay League three years in a row. $15 for a Bay League 3-Peat Shirt!Those t-shirts are available for purchase for $15. There are limited sizes available (16 Large, 9 Medium) Email Tina Ohmstede if you would like to buy one. Click HERE

Have a nice summer — send pix!
Where in the world is Costa T&F? As you see by the photo at top, Costa T&F was at Staples Center for the Stanley Cup celebration! (Thank you to my son, Robert, for being a good sport about that!) We would love to see your pix from wherever your summer travels take you — all you need is a Track & Field shirt in the pic! We’ll post them on Facebook (If you haven’t already, Like Mira Costa Track Boosters!) throughout the summer and then run a gallery when school starts back up! Email pix to

Senior Slideshow
So many of you have asked about it, and finally, we’ve got it online! The Senior Slideshow is available online but is private since names and photos are used. If you are not subscribed to the email list, please email for the link. Thanks again to Jeff Tong for putting together such a great slideshow!

See ya at the beach
Well, that’s it for now from our side of the computer connection. Assuming our conversion from MobileMe to iCloud doesn’t create the cyber-apocalypse, we will be in touch over the summer about athletic packets and fundraising opportunities. Until then, we wish you safe travels, happy family moments and some peaceful relaxation. Enjoy those teenagers of yours!
