I was able to drop in with the Oregon Reign Masters group out at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, OR on my way out of town from the Portland area this morning. Workout was coached by Dennis Baker. He was happy to see me there, and I was "happy" to see the outdoor pool was set up Long Course METERS!! They have a new bubble top over the pool which now makes it possible to swim outside at this time of year. Otherwise the pool would be unusable.

LCM

    Thanks. The meet was fun for sure. The 5 hours driving I'm used to. It was a visit to my grandparent's house for a couple of days as well as another family friend's house, not just for a swim meet (though I've been known to travel that far for one!) Got to teach my daughter how to play chess as well. Supposed to be better than video games and internet, right?

    I'm glad you had clear roads and no snow. I was not so lucky on Saturday.

    Awesome trophy - almost as cool as my Turkey Dip towel

    You did get something usable, but it will eventually wear out...mine will just get covered in dust.
