DAM's Big Day of Fishing

2022 Fundraising Event

   What do you value most about being a DAM member? 

   A new DAM member may reply, “the high quality and quantity of coached workouts.” A longer-term DAM member will reply, “personal benefits that sustain, nurture and stimulate us, while meeting diverse, individual needs; camaraderie, lifelong friendships, physical fitness, social, emotional and shared caring.” 

   DAM members recognize that to offer these benefits and meet the needs of our DAM community, there are costs associated with running our club. To remain affordable, DAM became a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and hosts multiple, fundraising events; Lake Berryessa Swims (38 years), Brute Squad (13 years) and the End of Summer Splash Meet (7 years.) 

   This year, in addition to recovering from the financial complications resulting from Covid, we have been advised by the City of Davis that our hourly pool rental rate will be increased. 

   Therefore we are planning our biggest ever, “internal” fundraising event. 

   ALL DAM members are invited & encouraged to participate! 


Who: All DAM Members 

When: Monday, May 2 from 6am to 2:30pm, and during 6:15 workout 

  • 6-11 AM Breakfast stuff.
  • 12-2PM Lunch stuff and snacks
  • 6PM Dessert Stuff

Where: Civic Pool & Brady Bldg 

   Similar to previous April Pools Day/ Big Dog/ Cinco de Mayo events, this year includes colorful decor, delicious refreshments and various sponsorship and donation opportunities. (tax deductible!) 

   For 2022, creative additions include, Sponsor Recognition & Swag, and return of the popular Brady Brick purchases. 

   Mark your calendars and join us for the Big Fun on DAM’s Big Day of Fishing! 

Berryessa Volunteers still needed!

   Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help at our Berryessa swim. We still need people to unload the truck and set up on Friday at the lake (dinner provided), and to help in the following jobs: start, finish, parking, first aid and  water safety. You can sign up at Civic or use our online signups.

   We also need people to donate packaged snacks and bottled water. Sign up at the pool. 

    All volunteers will receive a T-shirt, and we will provide snacks on the day of the event.

   You can sign up at Civic, or by clicking the button below! Contact Kathy Gill with any questions.
