TRI / Masters Swim Meet: April 18, 2010, Huntington YMCA

Sunday, 7:30AM, April 18, 2010, Norton Pool, Huntington YMCA, Huntington, NY and the 5th Annual Tri / Masters Swim Meet and clash of the ORANGE vs the GREEN is about to get underway...

First, the Refs, Timers, Starters and assorted Coaches stop to debate the rules.

Then, there is time for warmups and practice starts -- with a little last minute "block-start" coaching from Sal (who actually looks a bit awe struck by this fancy multicolor bathing suit!).

OK... that's a good practice start. Now all you have to do is repeat this under real race conditions -- like people on the block next to you, butterflies in you stomach and Arthur handling the starting gun!

OK, OK. Let me practice this one more time. Gun Goes Off... Start Watch. Swimmer swims race, Stop Watch. Hey, maybe that's why they call it a "Stop Watch"

The races are over and the results are posted. ORANGE Team: 119 Points. GREEN Team: 93 Points. ORANGE Team wins the 2010 dual meet. Will GREEN come back in 2011? Maybe!
