View Full Version : AZ Open Water Series + Pool Meet option

January 29th, 2014, 10:27 AM
The Spring/early Summer edition of the Arizona Open Water series is now up -- http://www.azopenwater.com/ -- and it kicks off on Sunday, April 6th.

If you love to swim longer open water events AND pool events, the Arizona Masters State SCY championships are being held April 4th to 6th and the timing of both events are coordinated so that you can swim:

1,650 on Friday night
1,000 on Saturday
Open Water morning -- 4K, 2K or 1K options
500 on Sunday afternoon

On the pool front, if you thought Kino was great for the 2010 Masters Nationals, the state meet is being held at Mesa's Skyline Aquatic Center, the same pool that will host USA Swimming's Grand Prix meet. The flyer's not up, but details and order of events are on Facebook and below - https://www.facebook.com/events/667973919912864/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular.

I will, however, do the 100 breast and 50 fly on Saturday so that I can make sure to complete my 'checkoff challenge' for the SCY season.

Any chance you'll make the trip out? It'd be great if you could convince Stewart Carroll to come out so that the two of you, Kurt and I could have some fun in the distance stuff.
