Reno Winners Meet
The 14th Annual Reno "Winners" Meet will be held Saturday, 1 December
2007 at the Northwest Pool in Reno, Nevada. The meet starts at noon,
so that swimmers from the Bay Area can make the four hour drive to
Reno the day of the meet. Remember Reno is at 4000 feet and that
there is not much time between events.
Thank you to Leianne Crittenden and the Olympic Club for working hard
to get Dr Clyde Wilson to speak last weekend at the Olympic Club.
Over 60 swimmers attended the workshop that covered nutrition and
optimal workout and race performance through better nutrition.

KATHLEEN ANN ANDERSON 1953-2007
Last June, a group of seven tackled the Delle Valle open water
competition the first for Valley Springs Masters Swimmers. On the
way, we picked up a dear friend Kathleen Ann Anderson. She hung
close to us that day and we had the pleasure to accompany her or in
other words "Draft" swim with her at our side. She is a dedicated
Pacific Masters swimmer. She was born September 11 1953 Kathleen
past away in her sleep on November 1.
Kathleen was 54 yrs old. Kathleen suffered from MS, and found peace
and joy in swimming,
her last swim was the 1 mile @ Tiberon. Our hearts and prayers go out
to her husband Mark Anderson of Stockton, Ca., and family.
