Hello All,

During December a small group of us will be swimming Tuesday (8pm) and Thursday(7:30pm) nights at Ottawa U  (December 7th to 21st). This is a public lane swim, but we do bring a work-out.  You can come and go when you like, stay for 2 hours or 60 minutes, show-up late, leave early whatever you like.

If you'd like to join us - please just show up at the Ottawa U pool, so far I'm hearing from 10-12 people that want to go to one or both nights.

Here's a link to the swim schedule if you're interested in swimming on your own over the break:

Brockville Almost Serious Swim Meet


We had an excellent showing this year at the 2010 Brockville Swim meet, which was held Saturday January 16th.  The Brockville meet, as always, was a great place to race in a no pressure environment and have a good time with the other OCM swimmers.  Brockville always puts on a great morning of races, and as usual the hot lunch served afterwards was excellent, and a great opportunity to chat with swimers from other clubs.  We're already looknig forward to next year! 
One of the local newspaper photographers got a great shot of Sophie racing her heart out!

So, it's time for our first pool to pub of the 2010!! Please come and join us at the Blue Cactus this coming Thursday after the swim.
