Weekly Email – 3/11

Hi MVMers,

Daylight Savings Time: It’s that time of year. Quick reminder to turn your clocks forward tonight.

Alcatraz Swim: Back by popular demand. Coach Flo is organizing a private MVM Alcatraz swim on September 2nd when SF Bay is as warm as it gets. Here is the link: https://goteamup.com/p/50925-odyssey-open-water-swimmi/e/57140932-private-alcatraz-swim-mvm/

More details: Alcatraz to the Ferry Building – “Approximately 2.5 mile swim from Alcatraz Island to Pier 1 1/2, next to the historic Ferry Building in San Francisco. This swim is for relatively strong swimmers. You should be able to do this distance in a pool (140 lengths of a 25 yard pool) without stopping. Feel free to talk to a coach if you’re not sure if you are up for it.” This one starts at Alcatraz but goes the other direction on the opposite tide. It is a little longer but really worth it – the last part is usually an easy ride along the SF waterfront.Currently the limit is for 15 swimmers but can be increased if we get enough demand.

MVM Parka: If you want to order an MVM parka, you have until the end of this month to get the 20% off deal.The link to order is: www.ducko.us/mountain.The password is: mountain22 (all lower case)

Happy Swimming, MVM
