Great Job at the Thanksgiving Workout!

Greenville Splash is off to a great start to the holidays!

We had 35 swimmers that showed up for our 7th annual Thanksgiving workout! We even had an added bonus of swimming long course, surely that burned a few extra calories. Thanks to all our swimmers for participating: Kiah Bellows, Scott Brown, Susan DeMere, Kris Dunning, Ginnie Freeman, Kelly GIllig, Dave Hall, Stephanie Hance, Rick Haverland, Janice Hebel, Tracy King, Mark Kothe, Doug Long, Carlton Manley, Sam Mitchell, Stephanie Nagele, Casey Oliver, Lee Oliver, Kristi Panayotoff, Klaus Pless, Cheryl Quinn, Jack Read, Bill Robertson, Neal Robinson, Lyndsey Roka, Tyler Scott, Karen Sturgis, Dana Sparks, Kathy Still, John Yennie, Jack Zimmerman

Used Goggle Drive

We are starting a movement thanks to one of our Upstate Splash Open Water Swimmers. Babs McDonald from Georgia came up with a great idea. Let's start a collection of used goggles to be given to swimmers in our learn to swim programs.

Drop off used goggles at Westside Aquatic Complex,

give to Leslie on the pool deck

or mail to: 313 Marsh Creek Dr. Mauldin, SC 29662.

Thank you Babs for our first box of goggles and for a cool idea!
