Hi All, wow workouts are looking good as of late. We are coming off of a lot of sprinting and hard work. We will drop the intensity a bit and go more aerobic until the meet in mid April so you will feel better. Remember sprinting doesn't make you faster right away you have to rest off of it a little to feel effects. More dives and turn work too... oh and relays exchanges too.
CAPS!! got a new round of black Reign caps coming in. I would like to prepay for most of them so please let me know how many you want and pre pay 5 dollars per cap, muchly appreciated. If you are new to the club you get a free one:):)
RELAYS!! OK role call for relays please let me know if you want to do relays at the meet and or are swimming in the meet so I can get a head count. Aubree and I will put them together. Let me know if you have a relay put together already too and we will enter that for you. These relays are really important for out team points and very very fun to do!! Only a 50 for each swimmer!!
HOTEL!!  For those of you who wanted me to save you a room at the Vagabond Lodge please call 541-386-2992 and tell them you want one of the Dennis Baker Masters rooms and put it on your card so its not on mine anymore LOL:) and what nights you want to stay.                
                          LETS GET FIRED UP!!        Coach Bake

Red Alert: Practice Change, Hood River Hotel, Swim-A-Thon
Feb 22, 2012, 3:06 pm
Hi All, first I would like to congradulate Joy Ward on a recent National Record in 200 back!!! Tell her congrats when you see her!! There is a water polo training camp this weekend and I don't want water polo balls flying all over and to be crowded so we will go to DD split format these next two weekends. There is a meet the following weekend so see practice changes above.
Next, I have blocked out 6 rooms in Hood River at the Vagabond Inn for the Association Meet! It comes highly recommended and the prices are good. Please let me know if you would like one of these rooms and I will direct you further. I need to know ASAP so I can cancel or get more rooms!!! I know some have already secured places to stay and some plan to drive back and forth. Again, this is the one meet of the year they score points at and we are defending champs so I strongly urge you to enter the meet. The relays are a blast and the banquet is great!!! The meet is April 13-15th so plenty of time to get fit to compete!!!
Lastly, I would like as many of you as possible to compete in this years MHA Swimathon!!! it will be in April after Associtation Meet. This is to raise money for the club and help pay our fees to the College and Coaches. I would like to set a $50 dollar minimum to raise for each swimmer that participates. The event includes getting donations from people to pledge on how many lengths you can swim in 90 minutes or a 5000 which ever comes first. (Your are allowed breaks during swim but no kickboards or bouys:):) Or you can just get a single dollar amounts like 10, 15, 20 dollars flat donation.  I will be sending more info in the next week.

Hi Gang, you are lookin good as of late. 
The Association State Championships are at Hood River on April 13th through the 15th!! I will block out some rooms at a hotel there for the weekend for the folks who don't want to drive back and forth from the meet so let me know if you want a room. This is our one big meet of the year and we don't have to run it.!!! It is great team fun and I encourage ALL swimmers to give it a try. We are defending champs!! The pool will be set up 25 meters like DD.           Coach Bake
