Yeah, we're just half way through.

00;00;18;08 - 00;00;23;17
I know it's only halfway through the summertime. Hard to believe when we still have. Like what? We got one in six events.

00;00;23;29 - 00;00;24;14

It's featuring a free Texas luau that's happening Friday, July 22nd from 7 to 9 p.m.. Todd is hula dancing right now. I wish you all could see it now. It's pretty cool, but at this event we are going to actually have a suckling pig on a steak that will be rotated just like a real luau.

You should get in. Also, it's been like 100 degrees at nighttime. So being able to swim at rock and river at nighttime is a real.

00;02;47;13 - 00;02;51;07
To get on the lazy river. Just float around and look at the stars.

Omar The Intern
Hey, guys. My name is almost more. I am a summer intern here with the City of Brown Rock, and I am nothing short of excited to be here on this Round Rock podcast. I actually had the opportunity to play all the sports that the City of Brown Rock has to offer. And so I give you a little bit of insight.

00;04;58;06 - 00;05;17;12
Omar The Intern
It was great and I had fun. We have both adult and youth leagues to offer, so I'm going to tell you a little bit more about that coming up later this summer fall. We have track and field for ages five through 18 who can work on their speed, agility, as well as their technique, their full time partnership, which means you can run at practice as well as the track meets.

00;05;17;16 - 00;05;37;00
Omar The Intern
And then there's practice only participants, which means you got to go to all the practices, but you just can't run in the track meets. Although the season started on April 26, it is not too late to sign up. Registration is open all summer and the track season ends on August 3rd. Another four we offer is youth soccer, which is fast approaching this fall.

00;05;37;01 - 00;05;58;10
Omar The Intern
Ages four through ten can participate. Registration for this season is now open and the season starts on October 1st. That wraps up all the sports leagues we are for the youth, so make sure you get involved and stay up to date with all of our upcoming sports to get your children involved. Now to transition over to adult sports leagues, we have a plethora of sport for both adult men and women.

00;05;58;10 - 00;06;32;05
Omar The Intern
We offer summer men's and correct softball summer correct cornhole and a fan favorite, correct sand volleyball, which are all coming up in late July. We also have summer men's basketball that is starting up at the beginning of August. These are all sports that you do not want to miss out on. You could meet new people, get some exercise in, as well as a little bit of friendly competition for more information on both youth and adult sports leagues with the city of Aurora, you can visit our website at Railroad Recreation dot com and our athletics tab.
