The One-Hour ePostal can be done in any standard size pool 25 yards or longer; your distance will be converted to yards if needed. Someone times and counts lengths for each swimmer, writing the time per every two lengths on an official split sheet. Then the swimmer enters the ePostal online. Simple!
With the current situation in the swimming world, WE NEED YOUR HELP with this project more than ever before. We cannot overemphasize how important this is!
- Participation is crucial for this project to succeed! Bob’s goal for Oregon is for EVERY swimmer to swim and enter the One-Hour Swim in 2021. We MUST generate enough interest in this event so OMS can continue providing its traditional high level of programming. If we don’t support ourselves, who will?
- All swimmers means all swimmers! We realize that many of you have been mostly high and dry since March, but as you return to the pool, use this ePostal event as a goal or just as a strong training swim. Maybe our one-hour efforts might not be as strong as those in the recent past, but do it anyway.
- A side benefit–you’ve heard this from Bob dozens of times by now—could be that the Oregon Club will be #1 in the country for the One-Hour Swim in the “Overall” scoring category, which we have never done before! If all other persuasion fails, use Oregon Pride as the reason to do the swim, and enter the event.
Please commit to swimming the One-Hour Swim in January or February and to encouraging your Oregon teammates and out-of-Oregon swimming friends to participate too. Many thanks for your efforts.
