P.A. pool

fundraiser set

The "Save the Pool P.A. Fundraiser" is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24, at the William Shore Memorial Swimming Pool, 225 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles.

The competition is open to the public.

Teams of four compete by swimming a 200-yard relay (eight pool lengths); each member swims 50 yards, or two lengths of the pool. Starts and transitions happen in the water rather than off starting blocks.

Cost to compete is $100 per team of four; admission to watch the event is by donation. Funds raised go toward helping keep the William Shore Memorial Pool open.
