Dear One & All -- Here is a HUGE info blast for you . . . so, if you need a quick read, just read the bold info!!!
FIRST: We only need two more people to make the Advanced Swim Workshop a GO this Sunday, December 4th, so please email me asap if you want to attend!!! Remember, it is from 10a.m. - Noon at the Jarstad Pool at the Bremerton YMCA.
SECOND: I will offer a Beginner Swim Workshop on Sunday, December 18th. This is intended for people who either do NOT know how to do the Freestyle/Crawl stroke or who are uncomfortable doing so. We will start at the VERY beginning and systematically build your Freestyle/Crawl stroke. If you are a Vet who is still comPLETing by primarily using a "comfort" or "desperation" stroke, then NOW is the time to "pink up" your game!!! If you are a prospective Newbie for 2012 and are not comfortable in the water, this workshop is the perfectly pink first step for you!!! The class will be held from 10a.m. to Noon at the Jarstad Pool at the Bremerton YMCA. Cost is $20 per person.
THIRD: You asked for it, you got it!!! We WILL proceed with the 2nd annual Pink Polar Plunge on Saturday, December 31st at 9:00a.m. at Wildcat Lake. Last year the Beatty's and Kaesar's kindly hosted 18 (ish) brave "plungers" at their private dock on Wildcat Lake (for documented proof, Google, "Pink Polar Plunge" on YouTube). THIS YEAR, the goal is to TRI to collect the final funds necessary to get THE SHELTER built at Wildcat Lake. We are about $1000 short. So, we will charge $25 a person and call it a "Prance & Plunge" (but, the few, the proud, the still frozen from last year know that it is REALLY the 2nd Annual Pink Polar Plunge;) This "newly named" event is open to all Tri Babes (past, present, and future) as well as all Tri Babe Supporters willing and able to admit to having had participated in something with the word, "Prance," in the title!!! Exactly what you do after you pay your $25 and show up is up to you. But, here is my pinkest vision: we will "prance" the 3.4 miles around the lake. Then, the very pinkest amongst us will quickly jump into and out of the water. Everyone who pays and "prances" will get a commemorative shirt and free coffee/hot chocolate. Those pink enough to "plunge" will be offered a flavorful "additive" to their warming beverage. No one will get a medal . . . we are keeping the administrative costs "on the downlow" so as to maximize the amount we can donate to the Parks Department.
FOURTH: Just when I thought it was safe to categorically dismiss and denigrate ALL cheerleaders (as loath as I am to admit it, I WAS one myself WAY back when which means I can castigate ALL I want, whenever I want), those enviable, entitled &itches go and do something admirable. Darn them!!! Please, please, please, click on this link and watch this video. Simply clicking on this link and watching this inspiring video contributes to a worthy cause. While watching, please keep in mind that, way back when, the Kitsap Tri Babes originated to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer efforts. YES . . . I have put on my BGPs, been a "good girl," and scheduled my yearly mammogram (not a moment too soon) . . . have YOU? Also, I beg you to notice the diversity of age, ability, fitness level, etc. even amongst former Professional Cheerleaders . . . http://www.KomenPhiladelphia.org/Video
However and more importantly, this video BEGS the question . . . do you WANT to reprise the Pink Flash Mob this year?!?!?!?!?!?! If you DO want to, we COULD pull this together for a spontaneous "performance" at the Kitsap Mall on the afternoon of Sunday, December 18th . . . let me know!!!
IMMEDIATELY UPCOMING EVENTS:
~ Friday, December 2nd and Saturday December 3rd: PLEASE come support fellow Tri Babe, Kim Duff, at the Southall Days Holiday Sale. Kim will be promoting her "Eat Your Greens" merchandise. Yes, I LOVE pink, but, as your Tri Turtle, green is my highest color choice!!! For comPLETE info, please go to thehttp://www.kitsaptribabes.com website calendar!!!
~ Saturday, December 3rd: Port Orchard 5K/3.1 mile Jingle Bell Run/Walk. Your Tri Turtle and volunteer extraordinarre, Sandy Willoughby, will be there in SOME capacity . . . just look for the person combining the "Pink & Green" spirit -- that will be ME!!! For comPLETE info, go to: http://portorchardjinglebellrun.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=478806
~ Sunday, December 4th: Advanced Swim Workshop, 10:00a.m. - Noon @ Jarstad Pool at the Bremerton YMCA. Email your Tri Turtle to confirm your spot. Cost: $20 -- remember, I DO have to rent out the pool!!!
~ Sending you all the Holiday Cheer I can muster . . . Lisa Be Your Tri Turtle!!!
