No Weekend Swim! Monday at Asheville School

We will have no weekend swim due to pool maintenance at JCC.

5pm Saturday Social @ Archetype Brewery

Come on out to one of our favorite spots in West Asheville as we say goodbye to the pain from wisdom teeth removal, elbow inflammation, plantar fasciitis, bad hair days, unwanted body hair and that tattoo your spouse can’t believe you got!

Archetype Brewery is located at 256 Haywood Road, next door to Pizza Mind, Ghan Shan West and Owl Bakery!

Order food from anywhere and bring it into Archetype and enjoy your swimming comrades. Swimsuits are not the best attire for this situation, except for Rick.

Please, no speeches about how awesome some people are (or are not) because, hey, every day we don’t see one another is a day tears of loneliness and wanting are shed by someone…Right?!  Let’s all just settle down and enjoy each others presence, for goodness sake!

Surprise, surprise…we’ll have company at the JCC on Sunday after 8am, and we’ll just have 4 lanes at that time. Therefore, I’ll get there at 7am to open up. If you don’t have the code text me.

Also, we’ll be at JCC all week, MWF this coming week.

Recent swims at the beautiful Jewish Community Center, where we’ll likely be for at least the next 10 days🚧🐠🐙😀


Although the date below is a year old, we did this NCAA 3-day format last Sunday, Dec 31, 2017 and 6,000 yards always goes by quickly!
