CT Master’s Games

CT Master’s Games were held on Sunday, May 19th.  For the first year, they required USMS membership but drew as many people as in years past.  Heats were decided by gender and age, regardless of time which was a unique but fun experience.  Many of the faces people have grown to love in CONN Masters were in attendance, including Val Ouchakof, Fred Goldner, Jimmy Goldsmith, Peter Berghaus, and Bob Cahill.  There were also several people there swimming their first meet in many years (sometimes up to 30 years) and some where participating in their first swim meet ever.  The organizers handed out medals after each third of the meet, which was lots of fun, and the medals were very, very nice.  Many swimmers also swam excellent times causing people to wonder what was so fast about CCSU pool on Sunday.
