8th Annual DAM Brute Squad Postal Swim
November 1-30

Are you a brute?  If not, become one by participating in DAM's Brute Squad Postal Championship.  DAM has been challenging members for many years to be a brute ... what's a brute? Well, the Brute Squad event takes the three most difficult events in swimming: the 200 butterfly, the 400 IM, and the 1650 freestyle, and combines them into a single event!  Start the clock. Swim a 200 fly. Then a 400 IM. Follow that up with a 1650 free. Stop the clock. Ready? Sounds crazy, doesn't it? Information & Registration
5th Annual MEMO 400 Kick for Time
December 1-31
Here's the event good kickers have been waiting for! Win a postal meet without even pulling. Just kick 400 yards! Any stroke is allowed and any length course will do. Kicking is great overall conditioning, contributes greatly to your speed in sprinting, and burns lots of calories. What's not to like? Team entries available. Hosted by Marcia's Enthusiastic Masters of Oakland (MEMO). Registration opens December 1st. Information and Registration.
