Thirty five swimmers did the “Dynamic Duo” that is swam at Lucky’s at 7:45am and turned around and did Jack Beattie’s lake swim at 10:30. Our lake swim group was well represented with over a 1/3 of the swimmers at Jack’s doing the double. Congrats to Amy Jackson for reaching her 500 crossing milestone and to Pete Gould who can be seen below holding up his imaginary 200K club shirt. We are either out of shirts or someone has misplaced the box holding the shirts. We are having a new design made so it may be a few weeks before we can get back on track. Other milestones include Kevin Hilgendorf scoring his 150 K club cap and Ariel (our underwater hockey recruiter) making his 25th for the white cap.
Professional Triathlete Nina Craft showed up last tuesday for her first swim and broke the record for the women’s 45-49 division with a time of 14:28. She vows to return to break that 14 minute barrier. You can view our record board HERE.

Help our underwater hockey players out by clicking on this link and signing the petition. It’s written in French but I’m pretty sure it is a petition for considering UWH as an Olympic Sport, on the other hand you might be ordering one dozen tapirs from New Guinea (never can tell with those French verbs).

We can always use more volunteer coaches to help with Special Olympics. You can contact Lucky or just show up at 7:00PM at the YMCA Aquatic Center on Tuesday and ask for Apryle.
I counted 36 humans(37 including digger). I am standing to the left of Barb Abney and behind Ron. You can only see just a touch of my green shirt and my 100k cap over Ron’s head.
Letter to the Editor, it would be somewhat cool in some decade to possibly be related to Elliot Gould, but since I truly don’t have a “u” in my last name that dubious distinction won’t come to fruition. 🙂
