Dear Sun Devils,

We have a wonderful team dinner set up for Lobo this year and can't wait to see you all there.  This year we are trying something new and thank Julie LaFave for setting things up...please see below and respond to her for payment and specifics.  Have a great day - Marc

Hello Sun Devil Divers.  This is Julie LaFave (Caden's Mom).  I am organizing the team dinner for Saturday, Feb. 9th while we are in New Mexico.  We really want to encourage team building and let the kids get to know one another so I thought family style might be the best way to go.  We will meet at Buca di Beppo at 6:30 on Saturday night.  They will have tables set up for us in a separate area of the restaurant.  Please make sure all the athletes are able to sit together with the coaches before sitting with your child which gives them the chance to bond and the parents the chance to get to know one another.  

Rather than having the delay of ordering and confusion of separate checks, we have a pre-planned menu.  Don't worry about quantities, they will bring as much of any of the things we ordered until all are stuffed.  The cost is $25 per person and will include unlimited food, sodas, coffee and tea (you can get grown up beverages at the bar on a separate tab), tax and tip.  

I am collecting money in advance so I can just pay for us all and so we can confirm exact numbers.  If your family is planning to join us, please email me at, or send me a text to (602) 738-6361.  I need to have all confirmations and payment not later than Feb. 5th.  You may Venmo me the money or we can arrange for me to pick it up from you.  Caden dives on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings but swims with his older brother all the other days of the week so either my Mom Becky or I can meet you to pick up a check, cash, whatever works.  The menu is listed below.  If there are special dietary needs that can't be met with some of these options, let me know and I will make arrangements with the restaurant.  Thanks so much.  Hope to see you there.
