GO David GO

August 9 to August 12 David Kohll will be in Puerto Rico.  He will participating in the USMS Long Course Nationals.  When you see him then wish him good luck.

We also have swimmers going to the Nebraska Senior Games to be held in Kearney on August 13-14.  Swim fast and as always enjoy the time spent with the other swimmers!

Get in the Water

The past two weeks we have had 68 of the 73 members participate in the program.  This is a fantastic percentage of participation yet our attendance average is a little low.  So have most of our members participating just not as often.  The lanes only have 2 to 4 swimmers in them, it is nice to have 4 to 6.  So come SWIM!

Three Dictators Needed

A volunteer coach is needed for Saturday, August 28.  This is the day of the Methodist Hospital/ UNO Women’s Triathlon.  Since I am the event director, I need to be at the Triathlon bright and early.  It is exciting to see so many women from our Masters program participating in the event.  I look forward to seeing your smiling faces.  If you haven’t entered the event but still want to, then bring your registration form to practice or just show up at Wehrspahn Lake at 7:30 am to register.  If you are a guy and want to be involved in the event, you can’t participate but you can volunteer.  It is easy – just smile and give encouragement.  We could really use your help!

Extra Practices Ending

The Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday 6:30 am practices will be coming to an end on Friday, August 27.  We will be back to M-W-F5:30 am practices, T-Th 6 am practices during the week and 7 am practice on Saturday.

No Practice

During Labor Day weekend, no practice will be held on Saturday, September 4 and Monday, September 6.  Enjoy the three day weekend!!
