It’s the day you’ve been waiting for – Gym CleanUp Day.
We’re looking for five to six people to assist with a thorough cleaning of the weight room/gym. If you use the gym, this is a good chance to give back, and if you don’t use the gym, this your chance to get to know it really well.
Saturday, August 30.
10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Refreshments will be available to those working throughout the day and then something a little more will be served up after the work day is complete.
Davis Ja and Deborah Sherwood have volunteered to lead the clean up, and we’d like to know who can join them. Email us.
Fran Collier, Weight Room Commissioner

Swim Briefing is at 7:30 AM. We walk to the boat at 7:40 AM. The boat departs at 8:00 AM. Jump is at 8:30. $10 boat fee. To swim Golden Gate or Alcatraz, swimmers need three qualifying out-of-cove swims and two helps. Since we need to hire a boat, if you sign up and can’t make it, please email us, preferably 72-hours in advance, but any notice is appreciated. If you can’t sign up at the club, but plan on showing up, please email us. firstname.lastname@example.org We need pilots for this swim and all the usual “helpers.”
