My friend Dominic Gillen forwarded this info to me. I have been trying to get him to come down and race some Pinnacle stuff, but he spends his weekends racing Xterra and cyclo-cross.

I am forwarding you some informantion about the Masters Swimming at Dartmouth if any of you are interested.
I have been swimming there for a few weeks and it has been great. I might help out with coaching, so if you have any questions let me know.
1. Masters Practices at Dartmouth
NCAC is taking over the Masters program at the Dartmouth pool effective
immediately. Brian King, the head coach for NCAC, will be leading the
practices. He says:
"I won't be the coach who just writes the program and leaves. I will be doing
stroke work with all the masters and help them achieve any goal they like."
Still Mondays through Fridays 5:30-6:30 AM. There may be a possibility to stay
a little longer as some of Brian's age group swimmers will be in the water
$70 dollars a month for 5 days a week
$50 dollars for Grad students
$35 dollar 10 pass a month
$10 dollars for one day
If you don't have a facility pass, you can get in the building at that early
hour by going in through the back door to the back pool. If you were standing
in the back parking lot (between Alumni Gym and the new football building
construction) and looking at the gym, there is a door in the right corner
sideways to the parking lot. That door will be unlocked (propped open?) at the
wee hours of the morning. That takes you in to the back pool, from their you
can get to the locker rooms.
If you have a facility pass, I believe you can ask the Athletic Facilities
Office, to program your card to let you in the primary back door to Alumni Gym
at 5:15 in the morning.
That's my knowledge at the moment on practices at Dartmouth. If you have more
questions, you can ask Brian directly at firstname.lastname@example.org[/url]
