Just one last reminder about the Tulsa Masters Swim Club's annual Oklahoma Memorial State Championship swim meet at the NEW Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center on SATURDAY, AUGUST 13th. Even if you don't think you want to swim, there are plenty of reasons to attend the meet:
#1, most important reason: SUPPORT meet director, Leslie Sauber, and all the volunteers who are working hard to make this a special event. We are getting help from the Jenks Community Education department and the Jenks Trojan Swim Club. They are very excited about supporting the masters club. We want them to see their efforts are worth it! Here is the link to the meet information: http://www.okswim.org/OKmemorialflyer2011.pdf
There is an event or two for all swimmers, regardless of experience and fitness.
#2: Meet fun, new & old swimmers! We've seen an explosion of registered masters members in the state this year. Come to see old friends. Meet new friends!
#3: Come to see, and swim in, the best pool in the region (maybe the country). You won't be disappointed! Indoor 50 meter competition pool, 8 lanes.
#4: Purchase a Tulsa Masters swim cap! Caps will be available at the meet for $5.
#5: Need some last minute swim merchandize? Joy Hancock from the Tulsa Runner will have a table set up at the meet with suits, goggles and other items for purchase.
#6: Opportunity to sign up for the 4th Tallchief Open Water Challenge event, September 11. This is also a Tulsa Masters Swim Club hosted event. Registration forms will be available at the meet. Also on line at http://tulsamsc.blogspot.com.
#7: Meet the newest masters coach in the Tulsa area. George Villarreal has been hired by Jenks Public Schools to manage the Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center and to coach the masters group swimming there. George & his wife just this week moved to Oklahoma from Kentucky. Please join us Saturday to give George a warm (bad choice of words!) welcome!
#8: FINAL REASON: Come for the awesome, catered, indoor, party after the meet at the Landreth Law Firm in Jenks, just 1/2 mile east of the pool. Eat, drink, and be merry! The annual meeting of the Oklahoma Masters Swimming officers will be held as well. Chairman Dewey Smith promises to keep it short & sweet! Right, Dewey?! :)
