The SU pool has scheduled maintenance August 17 to 24 and we will not be having practice. We will resume on August 25 to 29th; however the weekend of August 30th is Labor Day.
To celebrate summer and the team members returning from the Gay Games, we will be having a Happy Hour at Lobby on August 22nd. The theme will be the Gay Games. People can wear Gay Games apparel, and the medalist can wear their medals and pose for pictures! Jenny may need help wearing all of hers (I think 5 at last count.).
Good luck to the Gay Games participants who are in Cleveland as we speak; Jim Lasersohn, Ryan Roberson, Jenny Ferris, Brock Jones, Bryan Stebbins, Kyle Helm, Jack Hilovsky, James Radcliffe, Phil Brennan, Lisa Dahl, and Nick Wood (who joined the team from Portland). And according to day by day updates by Paul Ikeda, the team members are doing great!!! Several medals already.
