Having just posted the Minutes of the latest Board meeting held just a week ago last Wednesday, we feel compelled to acknowledge the obvious: that events since have rendered the topics of that proceeding irrelevant. As you no doubt are aware, our annual spring swim meet has been cancelled (along with all other USMS competitions for the time being) due to concerns over the coronavirus.
To those who, as in years past, tirelessly worked to make this meet happen-in particular meet Director Ben Swiggett and Aquatics Director Spencer Hawkins-our thanks and condolences that those efforts have now gone for naught. Thanks also to those CalM members who volunteered in anticipation of working at the meet; may your altruistic inclinations be put to yet more necessary uses in the times ahead.
For these are strange and challenging times indeed, so let’s all stay as safe…and as sane…as possible! Towards that end, for those of a philosophical bent, we will share this link to an article forwarded to us by former CalM member, Dave Duveneck (who is unquestionably of a philosophical bent).
