Testing on Friday June 19, 2009

We’ve got several folks lined up for testing on Friday, the 5:45-6:15 PM slot. Tell your friends and buddies that aren’t already a member of our “Pod” to come on down. I’m hoping the “February in June” weather takes a break and we can have a mild weathered swim.

If you think you would like to be tested, shoot me an e-mail here: sign_up@shadowcliffsorcas.com

If you are coming down for testing, please download the membership information and waiver form here (fill out page 4):

Friday, 12th June swim testing

Hi folks,
Myself and possibly Al will be down at Shadow Cliffs tonight doing membership swim tests. We get there about 5:30-5:45ish and test until 6:15-6:30. There is usually a whole “pod” of Orcas there, so you’ll definitely have an opportunity to do a cross lake swim with someone at your ability level. Don’t be afraid, there has yet to be any know incidents of Orca attacks at Shadow Cliffs, apparently this particular pod is quite friendly.

All bad puns aside, we’d love to see down there, it should be fun. If you would like to get tested, send me an e-mail: sign_up@shadowcliffsorcas.com

John and Al

Saturday 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM (maybe 8:45 AM due to an appointment)
Sunday 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM
(if you plan to show up after 9:15 AM on the weekends, let us know, the bulk of people seem to prefer earlier in the morning, and we’ve wrapped up testing in the past by 9:30 AM) let us know via e-mail at: sign_up@shadowcliffsorcas.com
