Oklahoma News - Mon, Aug 22, 2011

Good evening, Tulsa Masters members!

(Please reply to denises@webzone.net in response to this email)

Several things to tell you this evening. I'll do my best to keep it concise!

1)Thanks to everyone who participated, volunteered, or both at the our meet last Saturday! It was a big success. Thanks to Leslie Sauber for stellar job as meet director. Another big thanks goes to Lloyd Landreth for hosting the social at his office. We must also thank Jenks Public Schools for allowing us to swim and host events in such a fantastic facility. Meet results are posted on the Oklahoma Masters Swimming website: www.okswim.org

2) Next up: the 4th annual TALLCHIEF OPEN WATER CHALLENGE, Sunday, September 11th.
Your anxious event director (me!)needs your entry! Please go to the Tulsa Masters website, http://tulsamsc.blogspot.com - click on the Tallchief logo, which will take you straight to the online registration form and all the pertinent information about the event. Register by September 1st (earlier please!) to make sure you get a t-shirt.

We are competing for participants with the TriTulsa event the same weekend. I need your help to promote the Tallchief event. To entice the triathletes, I will offer special recognition to anyone who "doubles", i.e. does the sprint distance tri on Saturday and the Tallchief event on Sunday. Please help me spread the word to all our multisport friends.

Volunteers are needed, too! Not sure you want to do the open water swim? I need lots of volunteers for this event. Please email me if you can help. Jobs include: setting up the night before, "gate keeper", more set up the morning of the event; registration table; kayakers/canoes; finish line; food set up; clean up crew, etc. Volunteers receive an event t-shirt, and lunch afterwards, plus my never ending gratitude. Email me at denises@webzone.net

3) We have Tulsa Masters swim caps! The caps are yellow with the Tulsa Masters logo in blue. Caps are $5 (1/2 goes to pay for the caps, 1/2 to fund the Christmas party!) Contact me if you'd like a cap. If you are swimming at the Jenks pool, I'm keeping the caps there. Catch me at workout.

4) Coached workouts! There are now THREE pools in the area offering coached workouts to masters swimmers, triathletes and fitness swimmers. Donovan Ewing at Bixby HS and Charlie Haverstick at the Claremore Rec Center continue to offer their services. George Villarreal recently took on the masters group at the Jenks Aquatic Center. Email George at george.villarreal@jenksps.org for more information. We will be updating the website with this information soon.

5) Upcoming masters swim meets:
October 15: 1st Annual Walmart Masters Swimming Invitational, Bentonville, Arkansas http://www.arkansasmasters.org/MeetInformation/2011_Walmart_Masters_Invite_SCY.pdf

November 5: Lighthouse Swim Meet, Oklahoma City. Contact Kathy Keffer-Sharpe, filtercam1@gmail.com

That is all for now. Feel free to contact me at denises@webzone.net or call 918-749-2253.

Hope to see you in the pool!
