Good evening swimmers! I hope you all are watching the Olympic Swimming Trials in progress this week through Monday July 2nd in Omaha, Nebraska! Both prelims, semifinals, and the FINALS are being televised by NBC everyday. The evening events come on at 7 pm our time. I work during the day so I'm not sure what time the morning session events are broadcast. Set your DVR so you won't miss a minute of the action! USMS Summer Nationals will begin July 5 through July 8 in Omaha, NE using the SAME POOL as the Olympic Trials. Six Oklahoma masters swimmers will be competing in Omaha. From Tulsa: Elisa Bates, Sean Callan, Matt Powers and Denise Smart. From OKC: David Badgley and John Ragland. There are also five swimmers from the Arkansas Masters group entered.

Hi everyone! The 59TH Annual SWIM-A-ROO is Monday July 9 at the old faithful McClure Park Pool, 7440 E 7th Street. Warm ups will start at 5:30pm and the meet is at 6pm. The meet is normally over by 9 pm. McClure is an outdoor 50m pool. Reply to me right now if you are interested in entering. See below for more info. I NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU BY THURSDAY JUNE 28th so I can turn in the entries on Friday before I leave town! Swimaroo is a Tulsa Park and Recreation meet for all swimmers - novice, park & rec, parents, Masters and USAS. All ages can enter, 5 to 95! This meet is hosted by our friends at SwimTulsa. Please see the link below with the complete meet details. http://www.swimtulsa.org/EventShow.jsp?id=219737&team=osst There are only 4 events to choose from: 50 meter fly, 50 meter back, 50 meter breast, 50 meter free. You can swim as many events as you want. Only 1 event or up to all four events if you like. The $15 entry fee includes a t-shirt. Awards are given through 8th place: Medals 1st - 3rd, and ribbons for 4th -8th. I'll provide refreshments pool side. As masters swimmers, we will swim in the 19 and over age group. We swim in a heat with only 19 and over swimmers by gender, so a female heat and a male heat in each event for each age group. Tulsa Masters has been represented by 8 to 10 swimmers for the past few years. Some of our members have fond memories of swimming in this meet as a kid. It really is a very fun, no pressure event. If you've never entered a swim meet before, this is definitely a good meet to enter.
