Just wanted to share some news… last night at the annual in person SPMA board meeting I was elected to the Member at Large position for 2010! I’m pretty excited about it and hopefully I can help do some good stuff in SPMA. So if you’re in SoCal and you have comments, questions, concerns, or ideas for SPMA feel free to send them my way!

    Congrats…I've been following your blog in the shadows and it's always a great source of info.

    It would be great to see a little more action in the SPMA north of Santa Barbara (i.e. Santa Maria, San Luis Obipso, etc.). I swim with Kennedy Club – we are trying to make a showing at more meets down south and make a presence known to our fellow SoCal swimmers.

    Thanks James, I think I've met you once or twice at a Seahawks meet. I guess I am now the SLO County ambassador to SPMA :) Let me know if you're coming to an event down south and I can introduce you to some of the SPMA regulars. I go up north to events in Pacific Masters region as well if you're ever going that way.

    I'd like to see some more action up here too. I think the hitch for Santa Barbara/SLO county masters action is that a lot of the swimmers from LA/OC won't come this far north for a meet and you're hard pressed to get more than 30 people on deck at a meet in SLO. The good news is that there are 3 meets tentatively penciled in for 2010 at Sinsheimer, plus one in SB. There's a mild desire in Santa Maria to hold a meet but I don't think it's going to happen this year.

    Hopefully I see you down at SPMA Regionals in Long Beach!
