the only person in Cleveland with any open water event management
experience, I have been asked to run the open water event for
the Gay Games. I told the Gay Games organizers I would be pleased
to do that. So next year, the 25th Annual Lake Erie Open Water
Classic and the Gay Games open water event will be combined into
a single event. Stay tuned.... This year, I hope you will join us on Saturday July 27th at
Edgewater State Park. See you in the water, Tom Spence O*H*I*O Masters Swim Club http://www.ohiomasters.com/
