I heard there will be minimum fitness requirements for USMS membership starting in 2005. These will be announced April 1 (perhaps it's an April Fool's thing?).

Meanwhile, anyone care to speculate (for fun) on what they would be?

1) The presence of a pulse and respiration.
2) Able to leap tall extension cords at a single bound.
3) Tolerates immersion well.
4) Can do 12 oz. curls upon demand.

It was in the Illinois Masters newsletter. No details though.

Hmmm. Are you having trouble meeting your aforementioned criteria already? :p

Reread the newsletter, especially the last sentence. More information to be posted on the 1st of April (hint, hint).

You must be a person who has the need to go in the bathroom and splash water on your face when you can't make it to the pool that day!!!!!:D

I'm sorry Connie!!! I didn't mean to cuss at you like that!!!!;) I just know that some days I stand at the water cooler and wait for the time when no one is watching....splash some water on my face and go back to my desk...stops the anxiety attack from knowing I can't make it to the pool!:) It also wets my gills so they don't dry out!!!!:D
