The meet is called Far Western Championships and is an outdoor meet located in the San Fransisco region of California.

Midsummer Madness Thank You!

The Mid Summer madness went off without a hitch again this year. This small meet gives the swimmers a chance to swim short course after the long course season and often turns out some fast swims. Young swimmers who choose to take part often make a few surprising finals and pick up a cup of jelly beans by winning an event.

Calgary Cascade and Wayland Swim Club from Richmond joined us this year and a good time was had by all the swimmers. Relays at the beginning of each nights finals allowed lots of swimmers to be involved in the fun atmosphere.
