The Results for the Pacific Masters Short Course Meters Championships
1500 M have been posted. Thanks to Jim Shaw, Carol MacPherson, and
the Rinconada Masters for putting on the event.
Finally, the results of the Donner Lake Open Water Swim are available
and have been posted on the web site. There was a problem of getting
the swimmers in wet suits separated from the non-wet suit swimmers.
It was a lot of post race work for the Sierra Nevada Masters, but
their work in putting on this favorite swim is appreciated.
The Folsom Lake Open Water Swim results have also been posted. This
is Rocklin Masters sophomore year running this event. Thanks to Terry
Maginnis and the Rocklin Masters for putting on the event.
LOG THOSE MILES FOR GREAT T-SHIRTS
It's not too late in the year to swim the Florida Keys or complete
the 3000-yard postal swim. These great events and more can be found
on the USMS website at <http://www.usms.org>www.usms.org under
"Fitness Events". Be the first to complete a virtual swim in all 50
states. Complete the events at your leisure in the pool or open
water. Log your yardage and send it in to get a great T-shirt or
commemorative item. The Check-Off Challenge T-shirt for 2004 is a
real I-opener. Gotta go now to log some miles on my virtual swim to
Key West, Florida. Wish me luck with the wildlife in the Everglades!
