Get in your swim training and help Tulsa Masters, too!!
Tulsa Masters Swimmers: Do you consider yourself a triathlete or a fitness swimmer and not a "meet swimmer"? Don't think you can swim in a masters meet?? Can I convince you otherwise?? Do it for the TEAM- Tulsa Masters! As you know, we are hosting a really big meet (in masters terms) at our pool July 19-21. This is one of the few meets where team scores are tallied. YOU can help Tulsa Masters WIN that team trophy. For you long distance swimmers, the 1500 Free (mile) and 400 Fr is scheduled Friday night. This is the perfect opportunity to get in a time trial workout. If you are a glutton for punishment, you can even swim both the 1500 and the 400 free in one night. AND you will be earning points for Tulsa Masters!!! The other "long" freestyle event, the 800 free, is the first event Saturday morning. Another good opportunity for a 1/2 mile time trial swim. Don't want to dive off the blocks-- NOT A PROBLEM. In the water starts are perfectly legal. Please come out to support the meet, Tulsa Masters, and the volunteers who've worked hard to make this meet happen. We need all of you to participate in some way. Save Saturday evening, July 20, for a Tulsa Masters get together at Red Rock Canyon. Details coming later this week. REGISTRATION for the meet CLOSES FRIDAY JULY 12TH. NO DECK ENTRIES!! www.okswim.org We need help stocking the Hospitality Room with refreshments for the volunteers. We will take cash donations, too, if you prefer to let someone else shop for you. Sign up list: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080845A4AB2FAB9-hospitality AND don't forget volunteers. We still need MANY MANY TIMERS!! Refer (twist some arms) of your friends and family.
