The Timing System is Going In

Stopped by the pool today, and chatted with the Colorado Timing Systems installation techs. They were installing the fiber-optic line to the magnificent video scoreboard. The video panels weren’t up yet, but they were close.
Both techs commented very positively on the pool itself, and one said to me, about his equipment, “You’re getting the best stuff we make.” We (swimmers, coaches, and fans) are very fortunate.
Then, this evening, I got a call from Karly Harrod, our sophomore breast stroker, who was on campus, and happened to walk by the new Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex while the video components were going up to create the scoreboard. During the installation, according to Karly, they were projecting video of nature scenes with various animals. She said it was like watching television. Karly watched as they completed the second row, and half the top row before the rain chased her away.
Every detail that is finished or unwrapped makes me more and more appreciative of all those who made this possible…from Lee and Penny Anderson, to the administrators at St. Thomas whose vision matched ours for a fast intercollegiate racing and diving pool (and outfitted it superbly), to the workers who have clearly taken pride in this magnificent building.
