We had an excellent turnout on Wednesday with 14 players. Let’s try to do the same tonight. See everyone underwater.
Schedule update: The Grand Prix swimming series will be taking place next week at the YMCA Aquatic Center. This is a televised event on Thursday and Friday so there will be no access to any of the pools. We will not have practice on Friday the 13th (maybe this is not a bad thing on this particular day). The main tank will be used as well on wednesday evening, but I have arranged us to be able to use the teaching pool at 7:30 pm. We will be the only ones in the pool so it still should be a great practice on wednesday the 11th.
Yes, it may be a bit rainy but for *&$# sake it’s underwater hockey. Let’s get a good turnout tonight. No Excuses!
This is a video story from Aquatics International. It has a old photo of our team underwater in the story.
You can see the video here.
Our numbers have been a bit thin on Fridays. Please come join us this Friday for a bit of UWH fun. Although many may not know this, playing underwater hockey on a Friday brings you good luck the rest of the week. I don’t remember who said this but I’m pretty sure is was either Confucius or Mao Zedong.
1.Come to practice tonight. Wednesday was awesome . . . 20 players. Let’s do it again tonight!
2. Sign up for our tournament. We all need to support our club. Please sign up for our tournament.

Emergency Alert! Lucky is in desperate need of zombies on Saturday August 16th following his lake swim. The “Zombie Cause™” is filming a sizzle reel for pitching itself as a reality show. Lana Turner was discovered at a soda fountain; therefore you could very well be discovered as part of a horde attack (probably not). This could be your ticket to Hollywood lights, fame, success, fortune (sadly we are referring to future fortune, which you will be propelled into as this is a non-paying gig). So here are the things you need to do to help Lucky out. (we need about 50-60 zombies for our horde so bring friends – you can tell them they will be handsomely paid as long as you do the paying). If you have never seen a Zombie Cause video then check out this commercial that the Zombie Cause filmed for the Zombie Survival Store. (short edited versions of this are currently showing as TV commercials locally – at least the ones that weren’t banned). CLICK HERE
1. Let him know at UWH practice or sign up at Lucky’s house over the next week during the swims, email him your intent to participate or leave a dismembered hand or foot with your name on it at his doorstep.
2. We will be prepping zombies after they finishing swimming (swim starts at our regular 7:45am time). Non- swimmer zombies should arrive around 8:15 for makeup.
3.The film shooting will be from about 9am to 11:30am. We will have a full professional film crew on site (This is a serious film shoot)
4. We will have drinks and refreshments for all zombies.
5. Don’t wash hair or shave (the longer the better)
6. We have zombie clothes but if you have your own feel free to bring them. No Logos on clothes. Don’t cut clothes with scissors only tear or rip the clothes. Really dirty / muddy clothes are the best and really beat up muddy shoes are excellent.
7. For swimmers we will ask most men to go shirtless (You may insert your own witty comment about our female swimmers here, but I am not going there).
8. This can be a family affair (just like the Ebola virus), but if you are bringing children they must be able to follow directions and especially not smile (we will have smile police and if any zombies are smiling they will be pulled and set on fire.)
9. Don’t apply your own zombie makeup we will give you the look you need.
10. We will give everyone some SWAG at the end of the shoot for participating.
For a little more on how to walk and act like a Zombie Cause ™ zombie please watch this video “How to be a Zombie Cause™ zombie.”
Many thanks for your help on this. Lucky

We’ve had some requests for more information on fouls from some of our new players so click here to see the video.
Every team needs a mascot (not true) and most mascots are unimaginative and boring stingrays, barracudas, sea cucumbers, etc… Plus, most names have already been taken by other teams . . . Okay, Sea Cucumbers is still available. So I propose SHARKTOPI as our team mascot. There is already a critically acclaimed, organic, and natural, movie named “Sharptopus” so I propose Sharktopi as our mascot (yes it’s plural and we don’t get intro trademark disputes). Only one other team in the country uses this as a mascot (probably for good reason) a street hockey team from up north (crummy record, so they won’t be making the news). Additionally, unless there isn’t some extreme genetic engineering going on with sharks in the next few years we shouldn’t have any backlash from the indigenous shark population. I would like feedback from our teammates. (only positive, please, I’m kind of like the government in this case. You can propose another mascot; however expect to be audited)
We had a good time on the 4th pushing the puck. If you missed, you should have been there as we were talking about you. It wasn’t pretty. See everyone underwater on Wednesday!
As you are probably aware we have only one practice this week (Wednesday- tonight), sadly the pool is closed on the 4th; however the good news is if you crave UWH, as I do, we will have an impromptu get together at 4pm at Lucky & Jacquie’s house on the 4th and we can push the puck then. At five everyone is invited along with their families and friends to join us for our 4th of July party. Bring swimsuits and something to throw on the grill and something to share. Lucky is also hosting his midnight swim on July 3rd, movie at 10pm and swim at midnight – all UWH players are welcome to attend.
If you don’t come to practice tonight we will kill this zombie.
