Dunwoody 2014 Swim Schedule

Tuesday Nights in Dunwoody

The 2014 Summer Swim Schedule kicks off May 27, 2014.  

Deerfield Spalding Lakes: Sorry, we left this team off the original schedule.  This squad has kids from Brooke Farm, Waterford, and Deerfield East II. We did not have them on our radar but will scout the squad once practice starts.  Based on their season last year we predict a 2-3 season with wins over Zaban and Wynterhall.

Dunwoody North: No home meets.  We believe this has something to do with the height of their starting blocks and the depth of their pool. No extra concession stand revenue and five Tuesday nights in the car.

Fontainebleu: Tough schedule.  Hard to find a win, perhaps Week 5.

Georgetown: Undefeated last season so their 2014 schedule is much tougher.  They start with perennial powerhouse Vermack then SuperClub team Garden Hills, followed by The Branches.  

Kingsley:  Looks like a 3-2 season.  Will Princess Comet and Captain Kingsley show up in thong swim suits?

Mill Glen: Great season last year, and like Georgetown face bigger teams this summer.  

Redfield: An easier schedule than years past, look for the Sun Devils to go 4-1 or 5-0

The Branches:  Big Week 1 opponent in Mill Glen. Looks like 4-1 on the season

Vermack:  As usual, a tough schedule.  We predict 4-1.  We'd like to see them face  The Branches.  The Week 1 meet is the championship matchup we wanted last season.

Village Mill:  Great group of swimmers here. 3-2 season

Wynterhall:  Our favorite place for a swim meet.  The nicest people.  Bless their hearts.  Should get a win in Week 1.  2-3 on the season

Zaban:  Nice facility, one of the smaller swim teams in the group.  1-4

This season preview is brought to you by Village Burger, the official burger joint of DunwoodyTalk.  Tuesday nights the VB will be open late so stop in and have some spicy fries and a cold drink.

Captain Kingsley New Dunwoody City Manager

In the spirit of hard-working Dunwoody folk, Captain Kingsley has captured the crown of Dunwoody City Manager.  Captain Kingsley replaces Warren officially on April 26.  "I'm honored to become the city's 2nd ever City Manager.  I look forward to leading our city in a safe and healthy direction.  Annual pay raises and a car allowance are also nice perks not currently enjoyed by yours truly," said a tearful Captain Kingsley.  "My first order of business will be backyard poultry, followed by Walk to Council Meeting Mondays."

Warren, packing his bags for Johns Creek added, "Captain Kingsley's background in fitness, reading, and producing fancy multi-media productions suit him well for the position and I'll leave a stapler and hole-punch on my desk for him."

"Disappointed?  Hell no.  I made it to the championship game.  Weaker men folded much earlier in this contest.  Captain Kingsley is an okay dude and will steer this ship in the right direction," said GaryRayBetz.  "I missed Wrestlemania 30 over this, but I'll get over that, I hope."

"This is a guy I think we can work with.  Although his roots are questionable, he's not an idiot.  I've reached out to him already and we are meeting at Hickory House to discuss the SaveDunwoodyPac8 agenda," said Norb.

Team Wingate chimed in from the arena's box seats, "The mask is a little disturbing, but those tight leggings are kinda hot."

"I'll hold judgement until I know if this Captain is working from home or not.  The code clearly states a SLUP is needed for all mask-wearing super heroes," commented SDOC.

The usual crowd gathered early at the BP gas station to discuss this event.  "He drops in here once in a while.  He usually gets $15 unleaded gas, a Diet Pepsi, some beef jerky, and a pack of Marlboro Reds, hard box.  The guy is animate on the hard box, says the soft pack crushes in those pants of his," commented an unknown BP Posse member.  

"I have invited him to the Meng House.  He better show up as we have lots to discuss," stated MengHouseTony.

Mayor Davis said he is anxious to meet with Captain Kingsley.  "My staff has been instructed to let him in the door so we can discuss all options.  Although we appointed Chief Grogan as interim city manager, there may be some wiggle room there.  Our legal staff is on it."

In celebration of the victory, the Kingsley PTA has renamed the school library's Dewey Decimal system as the Captain Kingsley Decimal System and the Kingsley Swim and Tennis has dedicated its first home swim meet in Captain's honor.

Congratulations to Captain Kingsley, our new city manager

Championship Game to become new Dunwoody City Manager Set

GaryRayBetz versus Danny911Ross

GRB punched the time clock early Saturday to head over to outdoor court at the Donaldson-Chesnut-Spruill-Redfield-Major Dunwoody farm house wedding reception center abandoned park outdoor court for his game against Danny911Ross.  GRB placed 4th in the last mayoral election, slightly behind Gordon Jackson.  In an interview with DunwoodyTalk cub reporter Bonnie Hunt, GRB said, "I love drama more than victory.  But only Crown Royal is sweeter than victory."

Danny rolled up in the Lemonade Days Limo, coat slung over his shoulder ever so slightly, sipping sweet tea mixed with a little Louisiana moon shine.  "I feel good about tonight's game.  I want to bring back glory to District 2, and to the city at large."

Two street-ballers, one form Chicago, the other from the streets of Ruston, Louisiana.  The outdoor court at the FarmHouse Jr. played into Ross' favor.  The Dunwooy Red Hat Women's Club, the DPT posse, the bridge players of Greater Dunwoody, and many outed tournament members were on the Ross sideline.  "Even though he beat me last round, I gotta pull for Danny911," said StayHarris.  Heyward, Danny's last opponent, commented, "If anyone can get this CAD thing behind us, it's Danny911Ross. Plus, I'd like to see that Music Hall of Fame issue come back up."

One fan base Danny911 thought was a lock was the Lemonade Days crew.  After all, Danny911 helped put that teen-fest on the map.  While some of the Lemonade Days execs with the ironed T-shirts were in Danny's corner, every one of the workers, aka the Carny Crowd, were pulling for GRB.  "It's common knowledge among us Carny folk that GRB is one of us.  Hell, I heard he ran Big Eli for Modern Midways for 10 season in a row."  "GRB is legend on the '30',  Lincoln Highway.  The guy can call 'em in."

It was quite the sight to look over behind GRB's bench and see so many living legends all in one place: Chip, I'm Just Sayin', TheOther Dunwoody, DP Groupie, SDOC, Farmer Bob, all rallying behind Blogger League representative GRB.  In the end GaryRayBetz pulled out the victory, advancing to the March City Manager Madness final game.

Norb versus Captain Kingsley
It seemed as nearly every Kingsley student held off leaving for Spring Break until this game ended.  "We love captain Kingsley," gleamed a young first grader.  The staff of Kingsley also showed up, as did a rolling keg of Sweetwater, apparently from the Kingsley Swim & Tennis social fund.  "If you do the research, the Captain Kingsley costume has its roots in a socialist and/or communist territory," said Norb, the SaveDunwoodyPac8 representative. "It's quite obvious the red color in his costume is the same hue as the red in China.  And that blue is identical to the United Nations blue color.  These kids are being brainwashed and would be better served home-schooled."

Prior to the game a huge announcement was made regarding Captain Kingsley.  Capt. K added a partner, Princess Comet.  See HERE.

"Twice the fun, twice the dedication," said captain Kinglsey.  "The only thing better than one city manager is two city managers."

Norb just shrugged it off.  "Us SaveDunwoody folks have constantly faced harsh opposition, and we still prevail, defeating the establishment.  With MengHouseTony back to Connecticut, I am back in full command here.  Please be sure to read my blog, linked on the right side column at the fine DunwoodyTalk blog."

In a battle of leaders, it was Team/Captain Kinglsey edging out Norb.  "Don't worry about me, I'll still be around," said Norb.

Captain Kingsley did a victory walk with Princess Comet, well ahead of the scheduled Wednesday walk.  "One more person to defeat, and this city is MINE!"

The championship game will have a special guest referee in Dick Williams.  Dick was a high school referee for many years here in Georgia.  "Like in print, I am fair and unbiased on the court.  Even when I reffed a St Pius game, I refrained from giving them too many good calls.
