A week ago Saturday thirsty Grunions, along with friends and family, enjoyed an afternoon of wine tasting, tapas eating, socializing and more at District Wine. Thanks to their support we raised $800 for the General Fund. Thanks to all who came and/or volunteered to make the afternoon a success although many of us are still trying to figure out how Bart and Don scored so many raffle prizes! And, of course, thanks to our gracious hosts, Angela and Mark.

The next fundraiser will be held at PISTON’S on September 14th so save the date!
 
Ooh-la-la, Les Grunions Storm Paris Print

The GIHos were at it again, this time in gay Paris.  Mike "Daisy" Miranda and Bart Parnes swam in the 11th annual Tournoi International de Paris on June 7-8 hosted by Paris Aquatique.  Daisy did the Grunions proud by winning a silver medal for his 1500 Free and finishing his UCOC for 2014.  Bart won 4 medals (1 silver, 3 bronze) proving once again it helps to be old. 


Of course no trip to Paris would be complete without checking out the many beautiful sights of the city, tasting the local cuisine, and enjoying a few adult beverages.  A few new terms were even added to the GIHo lexicon.  Ask us about the "ginger squirrel", "Deck Princess", or the "Yuji don't".  As always we did our best to spread some Grunion love to the city of lights, and left knowing that we would return some day.


See you at the pool.

GRUNIONS ATTACKED THE COMPETITION LAST WEEKEND IN MISSION VIEJO! Print

GRUNIONS ATTACKED THE COMPETITION LAST WEEKEND IN MISSION VIEJO! 

  MV1MV2   

Congratulations Grunions! In a record breaking attendance for mid season swim meets, we had 17 swimmers at the Mission Viejo Long Course Meet last weekend (out of 120 total swimmers).  The competitive and fun loving spark was reignited again, as we cheered our teammates on to Grunion team records and personal best times, while others chipped away more events to finish their UCOC and/or came for the fun in the sun and race a little.  
 
Once again the Grunions not only "ruled" the meet but took home more than our fair share of ribbons.  Afterwards, most swimmers headed over for some pizza and drinks at a local pizzeria and chatted about what a fun day we all had and excited at the new energy seen by everyone to compete for fun.
 
NEXT UP? 
 
SANTA BARBARA: Saturday, July12th.  Most Grunions will be making a weekend of it, but others may drive up that early morning and just spend the day there.  Should be a great turnout, so don't miss out!  Ask a coach or teammate for details.
