Malcolm Cooper sends word that Polar Bear Fin Swim (sanction pending 1.2 miles; Malu'aka Beach; fins optional) entry form (race Sunday January 25 9am) has been posted at http://www.mauidolphins.org/events.htm .
For the next 2 Saturdays Dec 13 / 2008 and Dec 20. MMSC Pukalani Saturday morning workouts will be held at
Sakamoto Pool 7:30am - 9:00 am.
USMS membership is required ($43 Annual good thru 12/31/13). Everyone participating in Maui Masters event (practice, meet, etc.) must be registered with USMS or NO ONE is insured. A reasonable (2-week) start-up/try-out period is OK, but the signed USMS form must be filled out before getting wet. USMS membership provides:
* the insurance that allows us to use the pool
* Swimmer Magazine (the magazine of Masters swimmers)
* an online tool to track your workouts (swimming & otherwise) during the year &
Beginning today and until further notice, I'm moving the Monday & Wednesday evening workouts from Pukalani to Sakamoto Pools 6-7:30pm. For the time being (until the board decides or the pool closes to refurbish the filter), Tues/Thurs/Sat ice-skating will remain at Pukalani Pool.
Maui Masters Swim Club is a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization open to all adults 18 and over who can swim 50 yards or more without stopping.
