Swimsuits and summer fun
By GEORGE ADAMS
Daily staff writer
I would like to say a few words on behalf of all
the swimsuits in Ann Arbor. This message is
directed to those Washtenaw County residents
who impose upon these wonderful garments a
most cruel and unusual punishment: Dryness.
Why, may I ask, do so many people in
Washtenaw County prefer to stay on land
during the sweltering days of summer instead
of frolicking in the water as both your body,
and your bathing suit, would like?
Perhaps you think it is irrational to think that
swimsuits can feel pain or wish to be
moistened, but think of it this way: The earth is
75% water, and human beings continue to live
' on land.
THE PROBLEM seems to be that people in
this fair community do not realize the endless
opportunities Washtenaw County provides for
those who want to get wet. Because of this, the
residents choose to condemn their poor swim-
suits to the arid confines of a dresser drawer.
Swimwear does not suffer alone from this at-
titude. Ann Arborites too are not fully aware of
how far a little water can go in alleviating the
tension of summer urban living.
Therefore consider this a public service to
indsurfers the residents and bathing suits of the Ann Ar-
- 'bor area.
THE FIRST STEP must be to educate the
populace of our wonderfully wet community
about the endless possibilities Washtenaw
County affords to the resident who wants to
have a little fun in the water.
Washtenaw County is in fact well endowed
with the resources to make any water en-
thusiast (or swimsuit) happy. To be honest,
there are two activities that involve water but,
not necessarily swjmwear. Canoers and sailors
may nevertheless rest assured that they not
only have areas to pursue their own variety of
water fun, but that their swimsuits will be hap-
py to come along for the fun, on the off chance
that you might want to take a dip. Take a dive,
Ann Arbor, and make yourselves, and your
bathing suits, happy.
Now let's take a look at theopportunities for
swimming, sailing, windsurfing, and canoeing
that are here, waiting to be taken advantage of.
For swimming, let's take Central and North.
Campus recreation centers. Now that we've
mentioned them we can practically 'forget
them. They contain pool facilities and best of
all they're free.
The CCRB pool is open Monday thru Thur-
sday' 7-9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday
