Hello swimming friends!

I'm sending one more plea to ask for your help at the Speedo USA Swimming Region VIII Sectional Championship this coming weekend, March 1- March 4th at the Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center. MANY volunteer slots are still available every day of the meet. YOUR help is needed to make this meet great. 2012 is an Olympic year. This meet will feature swimmers who've already qualified for the Olympic Trials or who may qualify during this event. You might witness a potential TEAM USA medal winner at the London Olympics swimming in OUR pool in OUR town! At last report, there are over 600 swimmers entered in this meet. THIS IS A BIG DEAL!!!

Please think about all the things you do in life that require volunteers to make a great experience. I'm not just talking about sporting events. Whether you are a organizer, participant or beneficiary of these events, you know that volunteers make the event. Many unpaid volunteers who have "other lives" are already putting their heart and souls into making this a great experience for these swimmers. Let's show our appreciation by filling the open slots.

Even if you are not swimming at the Jenks pool, please consider volunteering your time. Tulsa Masters and USMS have already benefitted from (and will continue to do so) the support of Jenks Public Schools, Jenks Community Education and Jenks Trojan Swim Club. Getting involved in this meet is a great way say THANKS.

It is easy to sign up for an open slot. An on line 'job signup' sheet is available. Many openings are still available. Some jobs require knowledge of competitive swimming, some do not. There is a brief description of each job on the sign up sheet. Most of the slots require a 4 hr commitment; a few less than that. Your significant other can help, too. Scroll through the list to see the available positions, the time slot, and the names of those who've already made a commitment (thank you!).

To sign up, go to:
click on 'meets/events' on the right of the screen click on the 'job signup' button under the 'Mar 1 ~ 4, 2012 - Region VIII Sectional Championships' listing.
Sign in: for the email address use: for the password use: jtscvolunteer Scroll down through the list of openings. Click on the box next to the slot you are willing to fill.
Click on the sign up button.
A box will pop up asking for contact information. Please put your name and a phone #/email address here.
You are done. THANKS very much.

If you have specific questions, you can contact me or George Villarreal,

Please don't wait, sign up now! The meet starts Thursday, March 1st! Take some stress of the event directors and FILL THOSE SLOTS! You'll enjoy the experience.

Thank you for your time!

  1. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in
    getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!
