Masters Swimmers 

Every year at the United States Masters Swimming annual convention, we spend a minute remembering our swimming who have gone on thier eternal reward.
If you know of a fellow Masters swimmers who has passed on, please email us the person's name and we will remember him/her at the convention. If you have a picture of the swimmer, please send it along.
Whiskeytown Open Water 
Redding Swim Meet 

Whiskeytown Lake is just outside Redding so plan to drive up the day before. This is a beautiful lake. There's a nice shady picnic area and beach so bring the family. This event is in the early fall and the weather can be either chilly or hot. The lake is a bit cooler than Berryessa (think mid to high 60's). If you plan to do both the 1- and 2-mile events, be prepared to feel a little cold at the start of the 2-mile. Post event snacks.
For those who would like to drive up the day earlier, Redding is having a Short Course Yards Pentathlon. The Meet will start at 11am, so bay area swimmers can leave early to drive up there.
