The San Mateo Master Marlins are sponsoring an open water clinic. The 
focus will be on the fundamentals of open water freestyle. Time will 
be spent in the classroom and in the pool at Joinville Aquatic Center 
and at the open water course at Parkside Aquatic Park. The number of 
participants is very limited:

We here in Mountain View are looking for old PMS SCM results from 
1991 through 1995.  Top Ten lists for those years would also be 
helpful.  If anyone can offer any assistance, I can be reached at
ccampbell at macconnect.com.

The Bureau of Reclamation has insisted that Davis Aquatic Masters cut 
down the vehicular impact.  They are asking all participants to 
carpool as much as possible. When you think of going to the Open 
Water Swim at Berryessa, make plans to bring your swim teams mates.

Also cars have to be properly parked. There were many cars that were 
towed because they were not parked properly. To keep the Lake 
Berryessa swim we all have to pitch in to make it work.
