This year there are four short course meters meet. The first will be
the San Mateo Marlin's Penthathlon September 24th at the Joinville
pool in San Mateo.

The Mountain View Masters Alan Liu Short Course Meters Meet will be
October 1st at Eagle Pool in Mountain View.

The 33rd Annual Sacramento Sprint Pentathlon will be held at the
Schall Aquatic Center at UC Davis. October 7th

The last short course meters meet of the season will be the Pacific
Masters Championships held at the Heather Farms Diving Tank, Walnut
Creek California, October 13-15th.

The Oktoberfest swim that was scheduled for September 23 has been
cancelled. This means that there are two fewer open water
points-eligible events on the schedule. Consequently, this decreases
by one the total number of swims that an individual can use to earn
open water points for the open water points competition. If you were
holding off on doing your
last swims for the last event of the season, that will now be Whiskeytown.

The Pacific Masters September / October Newsletter has been posted on
the web site. There is a list of all the age group swimmers of the
year, the upcoming meets and other interesting items for Pacific
Masters members. Thank you to Joanne Berven for putting editing and
writing the newsletter.
