Swimming for 30 minutes straight is a Solid Fitness Goal! Some of you may remember how we have participated in “Postal Swims” which had a competitive element. This is just the opposite. We’re aiming to have high participation and have a good time while raising some money for the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation. The cost is a nominal $12 to get your name in there as representing our Moscow Chinooks Swim Club. Last year we won the USMS Large Club (75+ members) prize for highest participation with just 25% of our current members participating. This year the bar will be higher, so let’s aim for 50% of you signing up to represent the Chinooks because everyone will be doing the swim at the end of the month.

Mark your calendars to participate! We’re simplifying down to a one-day championship format again this year. What that means to you is that we’ll still offer the best of the events at a lower entry fee and without the need for so many volunteers. We’ll also host a fun social event. We may need some folks to host out-of-town swimmers since we’ll end later than usual. Please let Kathie know if you have a spare room to offer on either Friday or Saturday night. It’s a great way to meet other Masters swimmers from around our region.
Participate in the swim meet for $35 and a no-host evening social event, one-hour swim and cross-country ski are included. It’s like the Ginsu Knives deal of swimming! The Kroc Masters are a fun bunch of hosts to get to meet. Paige has booked a 2 BR lakeside condo for Saturday and Sunday nights and all are welcome to crash. Bring your own XC skis/snowshoes or have Krocs help you with rentals. Sign up at www.inlandnwmasters.org
We’re working on our home meet planning and how to structure our board a bit more formally. All are welcome to attend.
