College of St Mary – NEW Evening Schedule

            Starting the week of June 6, the Friday evening CSM practice will shift to Monday evening.  We have been wanting a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday evening format from the start of the PM practices but another CSM client had a lock on Monday.  Since the Monday time slot has opened up we are going to grab it.  The morning CSM practices will remain the same.


Olympic Swim Trials

            Tickets for the Olympic Trials have arrived.  If you would like to sell or buy tickets then go to our Facebook (Omaha Masters Swimming) to reach out to others who would be interested.

            The Olympic Trials needs volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering then visit with Todd.  The Trials are fast approaching and the organizing committee has a cut off of June 3 for adding volunteers so act fast.


Run for Swimming

            On the last day of the Olympic Swim Trials (July 3rd ) a 5k run is being held by the USA Swimming Foundation.  Check out the attachment for more details.



OLD NEWS – don’t forget the Lake Swim


No Practice

            We will not have swim practice Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day).  CSM will not have practice Friday evening but practice will be held on Sunday J


A Fun Run

            Attached is a fun run put on by the Boys Town National Research Hospital.  It is a great course located in a scenic area.  They also have a fun run for the kids of the family.   For our triathletes this is a super training run!!!


Scheuber Lake Swim

Steve and Patty Scheuber live on a lake just south of Offutt Air Base, 17323 Beach Circle, Bellevue.  On June 4th, the Schueber’s will be having the third annual open water swim at their lake.  Like last year, the event will start at 9:00 am.  This is non-structured/ non-competitive event (i.e., FUN).  A simple course will be set-up that measures approximately ½ mile per lap.  Swimmers will be able to go one or two laps, at their choosing.   Following the swim, we’ll relax at the Scheuber’s back yard for some breakfast and friendship!   This event is open to current paid members of our group and lake residents – family and friends are invited to watch or volunteer but may not participate in the swim.  SEE FACEBOOK PAGE for directions.


College World Series

The following is from Lisa Diesing, one of our original CSM evening swimmers.  She is a volunteer General Admission ticket seller.  Check out this great opportunity to go see Omaha’s greatest game on dirt. 


The 2016 CWS season is quickly approaching and General Admission Ticket Books are now available!


Ticket books are available for $85 and include 10 General Admission tickets good for access to any game (subject to seating limitation).  I can accept cash or checks, and checks should be made payable to CWS of Omaha, Inc.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to place an order.  You can reach me at 402-203-3752 or


If you wouldn’t mind helping me spread the word to your colleagues and friends I would really appreciate your partnership.  If anyone is looking for ways to utilize the tickets, other than their own personal use, I have some suggestions:

-          Donate books to a charity or non-profit organization you are involved with

-          Youth sports clubs or extra-curricular activities that your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews are involved in.  Team up with other parents and split the cost of a couple of books and send the team to a game.

-          Social gathering with family, friends or colleagues. 

-          Clients and customers.  Distribute this offer to your clients and customers who may be interested in buying books for their personal use or charitable donations. 


I have the tickets available to deliver, and I can take orders any time.  There is no deadline to request books either.  I can accept requests up until and during the series.  I appreciate your time and anything you can do to help make the 2016 CWS another record attendance year!
