Butterfly is Not a Crime
You may have noticed a special postal swim on our Upcoming Events web page. Warrenton Masters (WAVA) is excited to be offering a one of a kind postal swim without “crawl”: the Butterfly is Not a Crime postal event. You have lots of choices:
- Three possible (pool) distances in fly, back or breast; pool events can be in either SCY or SCM pools
- OR, if you can’t make up your mind, do a mile no-free IM!
- 3 x 400/500 no-free medley relays! The medley relays will be 3 x 400/500 Back, Breast, and Fly. Imagine being the anchor of a relay finishing it up with a 500 fly. It can’t get much better then that!
- You will have a year to swim events and you will be able to swim at meets, practices, or on your own for times.
- Or you can do it in a USMS/FINA sanctioned open water event (doing the entire 1- or 2-mile race fly or breast).
This is simultaneously the best and the worst thing I have seen today!
You may submit as many times as you want during the year. The first place finishers will automatically set an Unofficial World Nonconforming Record. They will receive an Official Proclamation from the mayor of our fair town, the Honorable George B Fitch (co-founder of the 1988 Jamaican Olympic Bobsled Team) proclaiming to the entire world the details of your feat.
