I hope you are enjoying a restful Easter. Go ahead and have seconds of everything – swimming starts again April 3rdand you can burn it all off in the first practice!

Club Swimsuits

Gentle reminder – the order for Swimsuits will be placed April 8th so that they will be here for the Nationals in May. Please advise cococomtois@gmail.com of the size and style that you want.


Canadian Masters Swimming Championships (May 17 – 20)

David Letterman is a keen swimmer, and his top five reasons for attending the CMSC are the following:

5.     It is located in Nepean this year, it will never be closer.

4. The atmosphere and the social events when 950 fit, motivated swimmers meet … are unbeatable!

3. While billed as a “Championship”, there are no qualifying times, so you are actually only competing against yourself and your own times.

2. Snacking all day is encouraged, there are professional massages available.

1. This is your chance to show off your new ORCA swimsuit.

Contact Anne-Marie to register, more details at http://www.cmsc2013.ca/

NB: Even if you don’t want to compete, you can still volunteer.
