For reasons that are beyond our capacity to understand, the Civic Pool heater has simply refused to fail, leaving the plan we've been talking about (see below) in place.
Once the heater fails, a repair process will begin, which may take 3-4 days, possibly more. The pool will become too cool for swimming, and all daytime practices will be moved to Arroyo Pool for the duration of the repair (and pool reheating). Unfortunately, there is no evening space at any other City pool in which to relocate our 6:15pm swimmers, and those practices will be cancelled during the repair period. DAM will notify all swimmers by email and update the website when this occurs.
Arroyo is an 8-lane pool located at 2000 Shasta Dr, in west Davis. The locker rooms are not heated but the showers are. While at Arroyo, please follow the same Covid guidance options as at Civic.
2022 USMS One Hour Swim Championships
Entering the final week of the National OHS event, defending Champion New England Masters has taken a slight lead over DAM and third-place Tamalpais. NEM has won the Team Title for the past decade and has the population to win again. Oregon is another strong contender but DAM has the most potential. We just need you!
Here are the current 2022 totals and the final club standings for the past three years -
This upcoming weekend is the big push for last-chance swims. The 9-10am hour is reserved exclusively for OHS entrants but there is also space and lanes available from 10-noon on Sat and 10am to 1pm on Sun. Use the window at Civic to sign up for your swim slot and if you need a counter, contact one of the many volunteers listed there, too.
Here is the updated DAM Top 20 swimmer list and the current relay records. Check out the relays, then talk to your cohorts about combining totals for new club records. Quite a few of the upper-age records are already in jeopardy of being broken.
If you entered online (as opposed to those who dropped off their sheets at Civic), please pay special attention to the Category where your time is listed, and confirm that it is the same category (Competition or NON-Competition) as the one you entered.
