April Pools 2010: Send your entry now! Want to volunteer?

Good evening, swimmers!!

Here is my friendly reminder that Tulsa Masters Swim Club will host the April Pools meet Saturday, April 17th at Booker T. Washington HS in Tulsa. Warm up at 9 am, meet starts at 10 am. I'm the meet director again this year and thus anxiously awaiting YOUR meet entry. Please see the link below to the entry form. http://www.tulsamastersswimclub.com/SwimEvents/AP/A2KAPFlyer.pdf

Early entries should be postmarked by April 10th, or hand delivered to me by Thursday, April 15th. Deck entries are $25. Not sure you want to swim in a meet yet? I also have a need for volunteers. Please contact me if volunteering is more to your liking.
All swimmers and volunteers will be treated to a post event feast at Joe Mamma's Pizza in D'town Tulsa.

Please remember that all of these meets are paid for by the hosting club. Since we don't collect individual club dues, and we don't receive any portion of your USMS membership fee, the only way we can pay for these meets is through your entry. Please support masters swimming in Oklahoma.

Come test your spring swimming fitness, swim a relay with your friends. The meet offers events for everyone, whether you swim only freestyle or all four strokes. Please contact me if you have any questions.

BTW swimmers: swim at TU this FRIDAY!

Good evening, swimmers!

TPS is out of school (again!) this Good Friday. BUT.... Jason has arranged for the Friday swim workout at the UNIVERSITY OF TULSA! Yes, we can swim there Friday evening, April 2 from 5- 6:30 pm. Jason hopes TU will become the backup workout location when BTW is not available.

The pool is located in the Mabee Gym building which is just north of the football stadium. There is permit parking on the west side (main entrance of the building), also street parking. But watch the signs as campus police will get you if you park somewhere you aren't suppose to. Not sure what it will be like on a Friday afternoon. There is also a parking lot on the east side of the building. You can enter through that door as well. I think you will walk right past the campus security office on your way to the pool. I don't think you need a permit in that lot.

Happy swimming!

Swim at ORU!

Here's some information from our TAT friends:

Starting Tuesday, April 6th Tulsa Area Triathletes will be able to swim at the ORU pool between 6Pm and 7Pm. The 7Pm time will be strictly enforced on Tuesday due to Eric and Janet using the lanes for the Tri-Camp they have offered. See the Tuesday and Thursday swimming as noted here:


This gives all TAT members use of the pool 2 days a week for the cost of your membership! The staff at ORU will be requesting you show your bag tag-swim pass to get in the pool.

Not only does a membership get you into the pool facility two days a week you also get:

  • To participate in the TAT socials just like the Brick-Nick we had last week!
  • General Liability and Sports Accident insurance coverage on any TAT sponsored event, just like the Brick-Nick
  • Substantial Rudy project discounts!
  • Discounts from area swim/bike/run merchants, including Core Multisport in Tulsa. See here - http://tatok.com/sponsors/

Hutcherson YMCA Fun(d)-raising Swim Event

Good evening swimmers!

I hope everyone survived the cold & snowy weather this weekend! I do hope we've seen the last of it!

The Hutcherson YMCA is hosting a swimming related fund raising event for their 'Strong Kids' Campaign on April 3rd. The event is the brain child of new Tulsa Masters member and Hutcherson Y Aquatics Director, Nick Irving. The goal is to swim 50 50's! A donation is requested and all donations will go to directly to the Hutcherson Y kids swimming lessons scholarship fund.

This event is open to everyone. You don't have to be a Y member to participate. The event information & registration form is attached. Sounds like a fun way to contribute to the Hutcherson Y. Please contact Nick if you have any questions: nirving@ymcatulsa.org or 918.728.3959.

Have a great week!

BTW Masters Workout week 3-01 thru 3-05

Hello all,

I hope everyone did receive the email thru Denise sent last week. She has helped me again by sending me the list of email addresses for the masters and tri's. Thanks you Denise you are a gem. I have been working on TU for a while with an agreement to use but no time or days. Nick Salis is over the aquatics and he ended up going out of town or sick most all last week. I am still actively pursuing, but not too optimistic for this time out. I want to secure it for future break that we have to take, related to school being out or otherwise.

I did arrange for the pool at Memorial HS to be availible from 5-7 monday. wednesday and friday this week and next if needed. For those who dont know where it is, its next to lafortune park on the eastside. the pool door will be propped open which is on the westside of the main entrance directly in front of the big parking lot. Coach Joanna Bentley is the high school coach there and she will run the workouts. We have been working together for several months on building a swim program there. She is a very good coach. There will be a workout availible that I will send her and she will be there to address any questions or help with your swimming.

I do have workouts at mannford and sapulpa still happening. These are my age group swim team workouts, but I can have more people in the pool.
Mannford: Wednesday from 6-7 and Saturday from 9-10
Sapulpa: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-7:30

Please let me know if you coming to Mannford and Sapulpa so I can have a workout prepared and a lane in.

I apologize for the inconvenience and I hope to see everyone very soon. --

Jason F Sauer
