The Brookings Swim Club is hosting a swim relay race to raise funds for new equipment.  The proceeds raised will be used to purchase nine - 50 meter lane lines for the Hillcrest Aquatic Center.  The relay teams should consist of 4 members, the distance will be 100 yards, with each member swimming a 25 yard portion of the race in any stroke (freestyle, butterfly, breastroke, or backstroke).  Beginner swimmers that would like to participate, please be able to swim a 25 yard distance or be prepared with a life jacket or kickboard to use during their portion of the race.
