Fun – Fitness
you have been in the water with the Omaha Masters Swim Program over the past six years then
it is highly likely that you are receiving this newsletter. This is just an effort to keep in touch, but if you would
prefer to have your e-mail address removed then please kindly reply and the request will be accommodated. If you remain
on the list then the plan is to send a newsletter blast one to three times a year.
A new web site has been created in the past few months. The new address is http://www.omahamastersswimming.com. Our web master, Steve Scheuber, has done a great job of updating the page and incorporating
answers to the most common questions. Suggestions are always appreciated, so drop us a line with your thoughts.

Summer At College of St. Mary’s
During the summer we usually see a jump in numbers and participation. This year an additional time is being
considered. Would you like to have a practice from 7-8 am during the week? This would go from May to August. If
ten people respond with a yes, then the 7-8 am time will be added for Tuesday and Thursday. If twenty people respond
with a yes then the 7-8 am time will have three slots – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Every vote counts, you
have until Monday, April 27 to voice your opinion.
Future at CSM
The Masters program will be remaining at the College of St. Mary’s well into the future. A great discussion
was held and it was agreed that the Masters would be able to retain 6 practice days per week. The details of the
actual times will not be determined until the end of summer. In August we will learn
if we move the Monday, Wednesday, Friday practices up thirty minutes to begin at 5:30 am, with all the other practices remaining
at the present time. It might also be the case that we keep the current schedule all the way through the week.
It is time to pay for
the second quarter (April, May, June). Please bring the fees to practice over the next two weeks. Direct notices
will be sent starting April 27.
