Article about playing games with the family, from abroad.
Our family has been know to play its share of games, and even attend a few games as well.
I’d love for you, your family and friends to consider a new set of swimming, play, fitness and community engagement events slated for August and detailed at a website I just launched.
We are holding drop-in practices for the next 2 weeks at Citiparks Ammon outdoor pool in Pittsburgh’s Hill District neighborhood from 3:30 to 5:30 pm on most days. This is a few blocks up from PPG Paints Arena where the Penguins play, central the to the city.
See the calendar and sign up there. Come on out and bring a team too.
Last night I had fun playing the water disk game, SKWIM, with a championship girls field hockey team and its coach. See my Facebook page. Rowers, hoopers, triathletes, and video-game players can give SKWIM a go.
Furthermore, we are gaining participation in club water polo efforts with the help of South Park Aquatics. Kids from the city, Mt. Lebo, South Park and Elizabeth Forward are all doing it now. More from Peters, Bethel and elsewhere are expected next week.
Lastly, on Saturday, September 1, 2018, NCAA Men’s Water Polo games are slated for Citiparks Highland Park Pool between Washington & Jefferson, Penn State, Gannon, Mercyhurst and our Pittsburgh Masters team, Renegades. See https://Renegades.4rs.org. Free admission. Save the date.
I’d be happy to coordinate to see you and your group at the pool this month. Call or email me for any additional insights.
(Please forward far and wide.)

Catherine V. Palmer, my wife, is on the ballot for President of AAA. Dave Jedlicka, a worker at the VA Hospital and a former student at Pitt, plus more, posted this on Facebook.
This is not a popular vote as it is only open to members of the Academy. So, those of us in the general population have to sit this out and just try to remind the audiologists in our lives to vote — and vote for Catherine.
A web page and video statement from Catherine is online. See: https://www.audiology.org/catherine-palmer-phd
The term goes one year as President Elect, then a year as the President, and a third year as the Past President. Then, after that, she’d join an elite group of about 20 people that are “past presidents.”
Did you see her statement?
Update: At the general election in November 2017, the voters in the city of Pittsburgh elected to change the city’s charter to allow city workers the opportunity to take on part-time work as athletic coaches for Pittsburgh Public School. More than 31,000 YES votes, 73%, were in favor. By the way, the unopposed re-election of Mayor Bill Peduto, D, generated 95% support and 39,000 votes.
Radio host, Dimitri, talks with Coach Mark Rauterkus about more people being eligible to be hired as part-time coaches at Pittsburgh Public Schools.
