August 31, 2006 Dix Hills 50 Meter Outdoor Pool

Problem: The "Y" Pool was closed and it had rained for the past week so OWS at West Neck Beach was certainly "at your own risk".

Solution: Swim at the Dix Hills 50 Meter Outdoor Pool.

Thanks to Jean and Bob for setting it up -- some of us were getting a bit "water deprived"!

Next year we'll be trying out for a synchronized swim team.

Joe arrived a bit later than the 6:30am start but managed to get in a good swim.

Before you ask... the answer is NO. Bob did not do a full 50 meter Butterfly Lap, he just swam a bit for this "action" picture -- though I do admit to asking for several re-takes! Hee Hee.

Good Elbow position from Chris O. and check out his hand entry form... it's picture perfect.
