Lest We Forget

One of our own is serving his country in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Ed Longwell is deployed with his National Guard unit which is performing convoy escort duty around Bagdad. He is a swimmer, triathlete, coach, and really good guy. Like all of our soldiers, sailor, and airmen he deserves your support while he is serving our country. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

BTW, here is a picture he sent from Iraq.

Also, if you want to show your support for the troops, Soldier Angels is worth your time and effort. These men and women have dedicated their lives to preserving freedom, both for our nation and for Iraq. Hats off for the troops!


SCM State Meet

On December 10-11, Sun Devil Masters will host the 2005 Southwest Zone Championships Short Course Meters Meet at Arizona State University. This is an outstanding meet at one of the premier pools in the Southwestern US. Swimmers from Arizona, California, and other states will be represented at the event so come on out and compete against the best.


USMS Website

Have any of you had a chance to check out the USMS website lately? I would have to say I liked the old one better, the current one does not look well-done.

Of course, if many people thought the same way maybe something would actually get done. If you think the USMS website needs to be updated, click here and tell them what you think. Remember to be respectful and positive in your feedback.

Masters Swimming certainly deserves better than the current website. I am sure that somebody could do a better job, especially if they were given some guidance on layout and style. Anyway, time to get off the soapbox and see where things go.
