The "Save the P.A. Pool 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, two lengths of the pool. Starts and transitions happen in the water rather than off starting blocks. Some heats may be assigned a gimmick.
Heat winners win bragging rights and all teams receive a tile at the pool in their team's honor.
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.
