Tom Boyd, and Jim Wheeler are the featured speakers. Tom Boyd did a
survey of Masters swimmers last year. He will be discussion the
results and what it means for coaches. Jim Wheeler will be speaking
on getting along with the pool management.
A COUPLE OF MISSTATEMENTS IN LAST WEEKS UPDATE
I did not appoint a Team Committee. Pacific is not going to the New
England Model. Walnut Creek was beat in the 200 Mixed Free Relay not
the Medley Relay. Kerry O'Brien is not going to be the head coach nor
are Brian Stack, Scott Williams and Tim Sheeper going to be the
USF is not having a long course meet next February.
Rich Burns is not designing a new logo and mascot. Jody Smith, while
always very helpful, had no idea about running that long course
championships at the Belardi Pool.
Other than that, we stand by the story.
RINCONADA MEET RESULTS
The results from the Rinconada meet are not yet posted as they are
not a in a satisfactory form for presentation. When they are (and I
hope soon) the results will be posted. I left the country on the day
of the Rinconada meet and was in Australia on the day of the SCAM
meet. I was not able to get those results timely posted.
