Event Description

One way to beat the heat this summer is to go swimming. Nine girls from Oakridge have been swimming for 6-7 hours a day for four weeks polishing their synchronized swim routines for their upcoming performance. Kicks, splashes, strokes, holding their breath, are all timed to music that they sometimes can’t hear when they are under the water. But they keep counting and the legs emerge pointing straight up into the sky right on the beat.

One of only two synchronized swim clubs in Oregon, the Oakridge Synchronized Swim Club is approaching their 2009 performance on Aug. 15 at 9:00 p.m. at the home of Coach Ranel Curl, 76504 Poplar Street, in Oakridge. Doors open at 8:30 for the performance. Bring your own chair. Refreshments provided at intermission. The performance is after dark to enhance the underwater lighting. All of the moves and strokes are visible from the pool deck. There is no charge for the performance.

Nine girls are on the team this year swimming to music from Robin Hood, Grease, and the Passion of the Christ. Beauty, grace, tempo, and rhythm are all on display, Saturday, Aug. 15, in Oakridge.

For more information, contact Ranel Curl at 541-782-2571.

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.

Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
