Some sad news from earlier this month. One of our longtime swimmers and volunteers, Bill Pave, passed away on March 4 at age 82. Bill did not compete, but loved his swim workouts. He volunteered as a referee for our Georgia Masters meets for many years, starting back in the 1980s. Even after moving up to Blairsville in 2005, Bill would drive down to referee an Atlanta area meet.
Editors Note: Bill was just one of the nicest, kindest people I’ve ever known. I met him back in the 80s while swimming at East Lake with the Swim Atlanta age groupers under Chris Davis. I fondly remember Bill ‘hiding’ on the steps when Chris would give out a hard set! He loved swimming, loved his friends, and loved his mountain cabin in Blairsville. He will be missed by our swim community.

*******New USMS Insurance Changes*******
A new workout insurance requirement has been put into effect by our insurance carrier. Effective
immediately, for a workout to be covered by USMS insurance, the person supervising the workout must be
a USMS member. In the past, a USA Swimming certified coach was allowed to supervise the workouts,
even if the USA Swimming certified coach was not a USMS member. This is no longer true; now if the
person supervising the workout is a USA Swimming certified coach, he or she must also be a USMS
