Hi Champs!!! I am so proud and privileged to be able to coach this group. Many thanks to Coach Aubree for running a great State meet, the best I have ever attended. Thanks to Ginger for putting on a super banquet. Thanks to Tam for running the check in desk. Thanks to all of you who timed and volunteered your time. Thanks to Roxy my awesome wife and thanks to Karen for putting all those relays together. Lastly thanks to the many swimmers from Club Sport and the Starks for always joining us at this meet!!! Even if you didn't swim in the meet you are a part of Oregon Reign Masters State Champs 2011 be proud.
We had many great swims at the meet. Some of note: Brad B broke some breaststroke records in his first meet back since college. Speaking of firsts, Suzanne M, Sandra M, Pat M, Lynn T, Katy P, Teri C all swam their first meets and did fantastic. This is why I love to do what I do, these swimmers found their inner athlete this last weekend and it was inspiring and emotional for me to watch. Great Job!! 
Next Saturday will be at DD Pool (see above for details).

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!
