AB Masters ~ August 2019 ~ Monthly update

Good morning fellow Master swimmers,

This is your August update.

1.  This Saturday (8/3), and all Saturday mornings going forward we are back to our normal Saturday morning practices time beginning at 6:30 am. Of note this weekends practice will be un-coached as all three coaches are out of town. Bryan Mullins will be providing the workout.

2.  Starting on Monday August 12th, the indoor pool will be closed for three (3) weeks for maintenance. Thus morning lap swim will also be sharing the outdoor pool. Masters will be using lanes Four, Five and Six (4-5-6) during our normal scheduled time of 5:45 to 7 am and on Saturdays from 6:30 am to 8 am. The lanes will be clearly marked and the guards will help inforce this as well.

3.  Open Masters Workout: The last All Open workout for the season is August 17th @ Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA. Workout begins at 7 am. Coffee and bagels to be partaken after the workout has finished.

4.  No Practice at M.E. Lyons on Saturday August 17th. See item #3 above for details.

5.  The last scheduled AB Masters workout for summer is Saturday August 31st @ 6:30 am. Afterwards we will celebrate by having breakfast on the deck. I will send a separate email with details as we get closer to that date.  

6.  The month of September, Masters are OFF. There will be no scheduled workouts at any of the sites. This is typical for our program to take a break due to the “DOME” configuration and annual swim conventions happening. The anticipated (tentative) start date for Masters will be October 7th , which is a Monday morning. As always, I will communicate out information as we get closer to the actual start date.

7.  Last but certainly not least, Please consider making a donation to the Bulkhead fund as we Masters are benefactors of the DOME. If all 50 of us (yes there are 50 registered AB master swimmers) give just $20, that is $1,000. Every little bit makes an impact. The amount needed was 16K, and currently 13K has been raised.
