Membership hits 250!

Well today was a great day, not just weather wise, but Al and I had the chance to test 20 new swimmers. The Team-In-Training group coached by fellow Orca, Dave Stark, were out for an early season training session and many members of that group have decided the Orca’s are a great way to get more open water training.

I’m not sure what Dave has been sneakin’ in their Cliff Bars, but we heard nary a complaint about cold water (and believe me it was cold at 54 F!). Everyone was in great spirits and sailed right through the swim test.

Once again, Al and I would like to all the folks that came down today and joined. We look forward to seeing you out there and hope you enjoy this upcoming season.
