Calling All REIGN
Jun 21, 2011, 9:12 pm

Hello REIGN, t's time for our annual Gil Young Memorial Swim Meet which is also a Northwest Zone Meet. The meet is Friday-Sunday, July 8th-10th (meet information below). I am looking for volunteers to fill the below positions and asking for donations to our hospitality room. If you plan on swimming in the meet, please volunteer whatever time you can.  Talk up the meet 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!  As it was last year, this meet is one of only two LCM masters meets held in Oregon this summer; let’s make it a great one. Thanks to you all in advance.  Swim fun, swim fast!

May 23, 2011, 7:48 pm

Hi Gang, first of all we are glad that Ralph Yates was elected to the MHCC Ed Board once again as he is a great supporter of the Aquatic Center!! Thanks to all that helped spread the word!!

There is a meet this weekend at Mt. Hood so we will be inside at DD. Which might not be all bad, whats up with this weather??? The schedule is above.

Big congrats to Bob Needham for completing the Tampa Bay Marathon Swim!!! Bob is a inspiration to us all on his quest to swim for Suicide Prevention!!! Make sure to tell him good job and check out his website at bobswims.com.

Lastly a big shout out to all those who swam at Masters Nationals in Mesa a couple of weeks ago. Reign was well represented as follows: Heather Blair, Mark Braun, Pat Cotter, Vern Dasch, Arlene Delmage, Aubree Gustafson, David Hathaway, Phil King, Roxanne Redwine Baker, Allen Larson, Allen Stark, Carol Stark, Jeanna Summers, Joy Ward and Betsy Watkins all swam great and had a fun time swimming relays and enjoying sunny Arizona. National Champions Heather Blair, Allen Stark and Joy Ward deserve a big Reign congrats!!!

We are hosting the Zone/Gil Young Masters meet on July 8th 9th and 10th so save that date for volunteering and bringing volunteers to help!!! Entries are online so lets get ready to swim fast and host a great meet once again!! Coach Bake:)


ORM schedule back to Normal on Monday May 2nd 2011
Apr 30, 2011, 11:06 am

Important Mt. Hood District Vote !! Schedule same this week
Apr 27, 2011, 12:50 pm

Hi All, dome is down and we are just waiting to be cleared by facilities and staff. So for the sake of convenience and that I and Aubree will be out of town I'm just gonna keep schedule the same as last week through the weekend. New Coach Stephanie will be taking Coach Megans place and will be filling in for Aubree and I till Monday night, please welcome her back swimming and coaching for Reign!!! I will update from AZ on Sat or Sun about going back to normal schedule at Mt. Hood or look on website!! 

As usual when budgets are tight most schools look to cut Aquatics. There is a very important Mt. Hood District Ballot and Election coming up in the next couple of weeks!!! On the ballot will be Mt. Hood District Board member elections. Dr. Ralph Yates our great Aquatics supporter for many years is being challenged by a MHCC student who thinks our outdoor pool "tent cover"  as she calls it, is a waste of money. So if you live in the district you must vote and tell all you know in the district to vote!!!! This is so important please activate your friends and neighbors in the district which spans parts of Clackamas, Gresham, Troutdale, David Douglas, Reynolds, Barlow and farther down the freeway a little towards Hood River. We have come a long way with this facility, its one of the best in the world so make this a priority for you in the next two weeks. I think ballots will be mailed next week with the actual vote in two weeks. Red Alert!!!!
