Icy Caution on Wednesday

Many thanks to Jeff W. and Adrienne K. For being so consistent with opening the pool on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays!

With that said, tomorrow is supposed to be icy in Asheville, and we’ll do our best to get there, but please use your own best judgment. No guarantees.

Below are the last several swims with the group and a short clip with 22(!) in the water on Monday, it was awesome.

New Pool, Friday Swimmer Social, and recent workouts…

The Buncombe County replacement for the old Zeugner pool on the campus of TC Roberson HS is a beautiful new facility, nice and bright, 10 lanes for 25y, nine lanes for 25m, great scoreboard, awesome gutters and plenty of spectator seating.

Mark S., Andrew P., Marty M. and Steve B. had a chance to race the 200-yard medley relay against the local high school kids and we swam a time that would’ve been eighth in the nation for USMS last year in our age group. Mark and Marty swam a few individual events, too!

Please join us TOMORROW Friday, January 25 from 6 to 8 PM at Highland Brewing for live music, board games, food truck yummy-ness and most importantly your friends and acquaintances who will become better friends by joining us for the fun!

Live music begins during our time there and you are welcome to come earlier and stay later, whatever works!

Bring a friend, a mate, a straggler who needs to be uplifted, we hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Lastly, here’s a handful of recent swims!

New Pool Christening Opportunity!

From our teammate Marty:

Hello  Everyone – 

Jimbo Cottam (TC Roberson head swim coach and fellow Masters swimmer) is hosting a practice meet at the new TC pool (10 lanes x 25 yards) on Tuesday January 22 at 5:00 pm Jim would like to test the new timing system before their first official meet.  The TC team and the AC Reynolds team will both be participating (boys and girls from both teams).  The meet will follow the high school meet format (200 Med Relay, 200 Fr, 200 IM, 50 Fr, 100 Fly, 100 Fr, 500 Fr, 200 Fr Relay, 100 Bk, 100 Br, 400 Fr Relay). 

Jimbo has invited the Masters team to swim exhibition if we are interested. The high school teams will most likely be swimming in 6 lanes of the 10 lanes.  The masters swimmers will most likely have 2 lanes in each heat.  There will be a separator lane and a warm down lane.  If the Master’s swimmers have four swimmers who would like to swim the same event, we may swim 2 with the girls heat and 2 with the boys heat.  Steve B, Andrew P. and I will be swimming.  Warm-ups will start around 4:15 and the meet will start around 5:00

This will be a fun opportunity to see the new pool, swim a race or two, and meet some of the local high school swimmers.  It’s important to remember this will be a “practice” meet to work our any kinks with the timing system, etc.  While nothing is expected, we could run into challenges, delays, etc.  We need to be flexible.  The new pool is just up the hill from the current Zeugner pool and across from the tennis courts/football field on the TC Roberson campus.  The address for the current Zeugner pool is 90 Springside Rd, Asheville, NC 28803

If anyone is interested in swimming, please email me(mmoran@clrpath.com).  And, if you have an idea about what events you would like to swim (not necessary, but will be helpful for planning purposes), please let me know.

Marty
