Volunteers Needed for Blast and Association Meet
Feb 21, 2011, 6:55 pm
Hello Reign,
   We are hosting two masters meets in the near future and we need lots of volunteers.  The first meet is the Pre-Association Blast Yards Meeton Sunday, March 13th.  This meet should run about 4hrs; short, sweet and the first SCY masters meet to be held inside the dome!!  The big meet we are hosting this year is the OMS Association Championships April 1st-3rd.  This will be the first time that Reign has hosted the Association Championships and it should be a great event.  Full meet info for both meets is listed below.  Dennis and I are looking for volunteers to fill the following positions and asking for donations to our hospitality room. I know most of you will be swimming in both meets; please volunteer whatever time you can.  Talk up the meets to family and friends; you can‘t get any closer to the action then a timers chair!   If this is your first meet, or your first meet in a while, no better way to learn the masters meet ropes then to volunteer.  Take a look below, and if something strikes your fancy, email me back what you would like to do and when you are available and I will add you to my volunteer list!  Please be clear as to which meet and days you are volunteering for.  Thanks to you all in advance.  Swim fast!

Marshals (2-3per day)
  Marshals watch the warm-up/warm-down area to be sure people are not diving when they are not supposed to, help clear lanes for starts and after warm-ups and breaks so competition can begin.  Plan to arrive arrive at least 10 minutes before warm-up begins on the day(s) you are to marshal.
Clean Up (Sunday for both meets) Misc.
  Not sure what you can do to help…let me know what day(s) you are available and I will find something for you to help out with.  The more the merrier!!
Hospitality Donations:
 Our hospitality room is one of the best!!  I will be providing drinks (water, soda, coffee, etc) and some other large items.  Bring whatever you like.   Remember, this is mostly for the officials and our own volunteers; snacks, finger foods, tasty summer treats, etc.  If making a hospitality donation, let me know what you are planning to bring and to which meet so that I can plan ahead for extra goodies if needed.

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
