San Francisco Bay Area Open Water Workout

8:15 a.m.)

Swim
To accommodate the varying skill levels of all swimmers, we will have
three
distance workout options:
.5 mile, 1.2 miles and 2.3 miles (give or take 10% error).   The 1.2
mile
swim will be one loop around the triangular course and the 2.3 mile swim

will be two loops.  We will begin the workout promptly at 9:00 a.m. and
should conclude no later than 10:30 a.m.

Directions

Quote:
>From north or south, take Highway 101 and get off at the exit for "3

Com
Park."  Follow the road past the stadium (3 Com, Candlestick, whatever
you
want to call it) to the entrance of the State Recreation Area (see the
map
on the reverse).  Park at the first row(s) of parking spaces and come
down
to the beach.

Registration
Registration will begin at 8:15 a.m.  YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHOW PROOF
OF
U.S. MASTERS SWIMMING MEMBERSHIP (unless you were one of the swimmers at

Redwood City or Foster City).
If you have just recently registered with U.S. Masters and have not
received
your card, call me at 650.359.3773.  NO MEMBERSHIP CARD OR NO PHONE CALL

MEANS NO SWIM!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!

Since this is not a race, there is no race fee charged.  However, there
is a
nominal fee of $3 for SFBSA members and $5 for non SFBSA members.  This
is
to offset the cost of mailings, copying and providing kayak support when

necessary for your safety.

Safety
For this swim, we will have two kayakers in the water.  The water
temperature will be about 52 degrees and there will be no current.  A
wet
suit is strongly recommended unless you've been practicing without one
on a
regular basis.
Water depth in most of the cove is less than 5 feet.  Should you have
problems, simply stand up and call for help.

After the swim, there are NO changing facilities.  Please ensure that
you
bring a warm change of clothing.  And take it from  experience - absent
a
sauna in which to warm up, you are strongly encouraged to bring a
thermos of
hot tea or broth.  Bringing a pair of running shoes and going for a
short
10-20 minute run is also another excellent method for warming up.

This promises to be another most enjoyable morning.  If you have friends
who
are Masters Swimmers and might be interested, please pass the word on to
them.

The objective of SFBSA is to provide safe and inexpensive opportunities
to
improve your open water swimming skills and to gain confidence.  Our
"workouts" are not races and you do not have to be good, fast or an
Olympic
hopeful - you just have to have a desire to swim in the wide open water.

I look forward to seeing you on the 13th.

Early detection is a lifesaver. Age and gender are the two most
significant
risk factors for *** cancer. One in every nine women
living to 85 years or older will be diagnosed with this life-threatening

disease in her lifetime. Think of the women in your life.  Early
detection
saves lives. Follow these three, important steps:

    Annual screening mammography for women beginning at age 40

    Clinical *** examination at least every 3 years beginning at 20,
and
annually after 40

    Monthly *** self-examination (BSE) beginning by age 20.
