One Hour Postal Jan 22nd and 23rd
Jan 13, 2011, 6:29 am
Hi All, we will be having One Hour Postal set up for Saturday January 22nd from 10am to 12noon and Sunday January 23rd from 8:30am to 10:30am. Open to non Reign members for a reduced drop in fee of $5 for the special weekend. You need a timer and I will have a few watches on hand for timing. I will have paperwork for all who need it and clip boards. Normal practice times for those not doing 1 hour postal but I strongly encourage Reign members to try this out you will love it!!! The pool will set up short course so lots of lanes:)
Many thanks to Linda Bley for hosting holiday party it was a blast!!

Practice Change for Saturday 11/13/10 and Holiday (11/25 and 11/26)
Nov 17, 2010, 2:14 pm
Hi Gang, they have combined the age group meet into a Fri/Sat meet and will not be swimming on Sunday so we can have practice at Mt. Hood in the Dome on Sunday Nov.21st at 9:00am as normal.

Please email me your input on Xmas Party Dates, Weekends could be Dec 11th 12th, or 18th,19th or we could wait till after holiday like we have in the past due to bad weather and seemed to have a bigger turnout. Possible locations are Gresham Golf Course, Mine and Roxy's house or if anyone else has a suggestion they are welcome.:)

Please Help Prevent the Possible Closure of Corvallis' Osborn Aquatic Center
Nov 14, 2010, 10:07 am
OMS Board,
The City of Corvallis is considering closing Osborn Aquatic Center.  Please read the following.
We have an urgent matter that must be addressed immediately! Due to a shortfall of 5.2 million dollars in the City budget, the City Council is seriously considering closing the Osborn Aquatic Center.  The budget shortfall is based on property tax dollars.  The City has five departments that are subsidized through these funds; Parks and Recreation, Library, Community Development, Fire, and Police.  Some decision makers have expressed that since Police and Fire provide Healthy and Safety services, they can not afford to take on any of the burden of the budget reductions.  This means that Parks and Recreation (Osborn), and the Library will be responsible for the lion’s share of the reductions.
I think it is important to make it clear to the city Council that Osborn provides essential health and safety services as much as any other department.  Osborn serves the entire community including babies, elderly, injured, disabled, athletes, etc.  We live in a city bordered by rivers, if people do not have access to swim lessons, the incidence of drowning will increase.  If injured and disabled people can’t exercise in water, their health and mobility will decline. If elderly people do not have a place to go, they could become “shut-ins”
The budget shortfall is significant, and the Council has many alternatives to consider.  Simply closing Osborn will not solve the problem.  We would still have to spend money to keep the building and pools in good condition.  To solve the problem, we hope the Council will consider two options; 1) spread the burden of reductions evenly amongst all City departments; 2) reach out to the community by asking them to support a levy that would fund the operating budget for Osborn as well as other services.
We need your help!  Please write a letter to the Mayor and City Council.  In your letter tell the Mayor and City Council your experiences with Osborn Aquatic Center. (i.e. OMS Association Championships 2006 & 2010).
Letters should be addressed to Mayor Tomlinson and City Council. Please state that you want your letter included in the November 22, 2010 City Council packet.
Your letters should be sent to kathy.louie@ci.corvallis.or.us Letters are due by Wednesday, November 17, 2010.


Thanks for your help, Tim Waud
