Sunday, March 24 - Palm Springs

Four Grunions (Brian Kremers, Drew Giacobe, Peter Abudayyeh and Dustin Morris) represented the team in a three day long West Hollywood Aquatics training camp of four 90 minute long workouts in the pool with 60 other swimmers. The weather was beautiful and the hosts did a wonderful job making the four of us feel 100% at home. New friends were made and old friendships rekindled. We also enjoyed the social events provided, which included dinner and margaritas on Friday, a wonderful hosted dinner on Saturday at a gorgeous home overlooking the city, and brunch on Sunday. All of us took home with us many things to work on in the pool and even one of our Grunions (Drew Giacobe) won an award for one of the hardest workers in the camp.
