April 23, 2012
The 2012 Open Water season is almost here with the first event scheduled for Saturday May 19. After an abbreviated schedule in 2011, the 2012 Pacific Masters schedule is once again packed full with 13 venues offering the opportunity to compete in up to 21 races. Workshops are also offered by Pacific Masters. Complete details can be found on the Pacific Masters website.
New this year for Walnut Creek Masters members is our 2012 Open Water Challenge. By entering and completing race events at three of the 13 venues WCM members will receive a custom designed WCM 2012 Open Water Challenge sweatshirt. Our goal is for more of our 400+ WCM members to experience the exhilaration of open water swimming this season. (Please note that only one race per venue will count towards the three event qualification standard.)
WCM will also again host a post-race picnic for our members and guests at the June 10 Lake Del Valle .75 and 2.5 KM race event.
