Howard Jones loved the Mt. Hood pool and was extremely proud of it. One of the first things he did when his daughter Kim came home a few days before his surgery was to show her the “new” pool. I think that a fitting memorial to Howard would be to place one of the memorial medallions at the pool in his honor. I would like to do this on the Saturday of the June invitational, to be renamed the Howard Jones Invitational. The cost is $5,000. Currently I have pledges, or cash in hand, to cover slightly over 20%. If you would like to donate, you can send your money to me. Make the check payable to “Eugene Mielke for the Howard Jones Memorial”. My address is 3926 Fairview Drive, Hood River, Oregon 97031.

Here is a message from Paul Reidl, Team Lead for Western Zone. The application to officiate is posted elsewhere on this stie. BL
I have the real privilege of serving as the Team Lead for the Officials at the 2008 Western Zone meet in Gresham, Oregon. As you all know, Zones is a very special meet. In addition to observing the talented athletes, it is a time for renewing old friendships and making new ones.
I am attaching the Application to Officiate. Please blast it out to the officials in your LSC.
The "E" version is the electronic version for e-mailing to me; the "M" version is for those folks who want to complete it manually and send it by mail. The Application for Evaluation form will be sent to you once we receive all of the required approvals.
If you or any other officials in your LSC have any questions at all about the application or officiating at the meet, please direct them to me. I can be reached by telephone at the numbers on the Applications; however, since I will be spending the better part of the next two months outside the United States in far-flung time zones, e-mail is the best way to get a quick answer. I can be reached at the e-mail address below or at my office e-mail, which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Oregon.
Paul W. Reidl
