An Email From Simon Re: Water Polo

I received the following email from Simon Butterworth regarding our annual Water Polo Game:


I'm jealous, our pool is not even open today. The attached picture will explain why. I did get out for my first serious attempt at snowshoeing today, there were even a few die hard bicyclists on our street this morning. Otherwise not much is moving out here in Colorado.

Starting Jan 8th I will be coaching a Masters Swim group in Lafayette, the town just to our east. I will, if the towns insurance will permit it, be introducing a Christmas Water Polo game in 12 months. Perhaps someday we can have a tournament.

Hope you all are having a great holiday season.


Has the Water Polo Gauntlet been thrown? Based on this picture of Simon in the snow, does anybody, (except a few ski buffs), want to journey to Colorado in the Winter? Stay tuned!
