Swim Competition Coming To Angle Lake

Two years ago, Blue Wave Aquatics hosted the 2009 National 5K Swim here at Angle Lake and it is reported to have been such a huge success that the group is returning to our neighborhood to sponsor the 1st Annual “Last Gasp of Summer” Competitive Race on Saturday, September 17th.
The LAST GASP OF SUMMER is advertised as a fun and challenging race with one and two mile events sponsored by Blue Wave Aquatics, Sanctioned by Pacific Northwest Association of Masters Swimmers, Inc for United States Masters Swimming (Sanction No. 361OW-05). The competition will include four events: 1 mile wetsuit, 1 mile non-wetsuit, 2 miles wetsuit, 2 miles non-wetsuit. Organizers indicate about 35 swimmers have signed up so far and they are hoping for a field of over seventy to compete on race day.
