Fwd: Hot in the city -- invite to play well with others

Hi Friends,

A few invites to consider and pass along, mostly wet and cool -- in these hot times in the region.

At 6 pm on Tuesday, July 3, we've been invited to an informal swimming time trial and follow-up game of SKWIM at the Greensburg Country Club. 

At 7 pm, July 4, is the start of our traditional Independence Day open house at our home on 12th Street in the Historic South Side, Both of our sons are expected to be here too. 

From 6 to 7:45 pm on July 5, all are invited to Citiparks Ammon outdoor swim pool, corner of Bedford Ave and Memory Lane, for another of our regular Renegades (Masters) Water Polo practices Plus, we've been playing SKWIM in the middle of the pool too for kids and those not up for the full game of water polo. A reporter is expected, so we'd love to have a nice turn-out. 

Pittsburgh Combined is looking for high school and middle school swimmers who want to play competitive water polo this fall. We have players from South Park and Mt. Lebo and some from the city too. See attached PDF. This is a non-league team, so students from any school can combine to play our pending "club" schedule. Practices are starting. 

Our camper kids at The Pittsburgh Project have been going to the pool at Riverview Park and playing some SKWIM, while our Northside pool is under construction still. But, I've also been able to go elsewhere to lead informal game days at other pools as well. We had a great time at the South Hills Country Club last week. If you want to bring your group to us -- or if I can bring our equipment (disks, fins, etc.) and some players to you -- please call or email and let's set up a joint play date.

Stay safe. Hope to see you soon.
