    Default Poo in the pool wallops Walmart swim team



    Colgate day 2 nixed by ‘number two’
    By Tom Glave Sports Writer tomg@nwanews.com


    BENTONVILLE — An unpleasant mess forced a one-day break in this weekend’s annual Colgate Summer Classic at the Melvin Ford Aquatic Center swimming pool at Memorial Park.

    Wal-Mart Swim Club coach Steve Duwel had to postpone Saturday’s events, which were scheduled to start at 9 a.m., when feces was found in the pool early Saturday morning. "We were here and all of a sudden one of my swimmers said ‘What’s that?’" It wasn’t just a little bit, it was a lot, "Duwel said." I’m not going to go into details but it was a huge mess. "

    Duwel said members of the 12 teams competing this weekend started showing up as he was cleaning the pool. The center’s maintenance crew came out, cleaned the pool and put in chemicals to help clean the water. Duwel said the water had to run through the filters a certain number of times — which would take about 12 hours — before the pool could be used again.

    Corporal Tim Marta of the Bentonville Police Department said the vandalism is being investigated.

    " Pool personnel found what they believed to be dog feces in the pool, "Marta said." They closed the pool down for the rest of the day. We don’t know yet how it get there. It is still being investigated. "

    ...The first three events of the meet were held Friday night and Duwel had wondered if he should be worried about anyone sneaking in after he left.

    " Last night as I was closing up I thought maybe I should leave the lights on just to deter anyone from coming in, "Duwel said." We cleared the deck of everything except for tables and chairs and we thought if they come in here and throw stuff in the water — which has happened before — that it wouldn’t hurt anything. I didn’t think they’d do something like that. "

    Duwel said people sometimes climb the fence around the pool after hours and swim. He said there have been instances when garbage or other things have been thrown in the pool, but never something that contaminated the water.

    " A few weeks ago there were a couple of huge piles of dog dung on the deck but not in the pool, "he said.

    " I didn’t think anyone would go that far to do something that would cause us to have to shut the whole thing down. "

    Duwel said the pool has been shut down before because of an accident but not vandalism.

    " It’s happened before — sometimes a little kid will crap in the pool or something, "Duwel said." And we have to shut down the pool and clean it up. Stuff happens. But not before a competition. It’s just a huge inconvenience.

    I hope this doesn't put a damper on this year's membership drive. Nothing kills revenue like phantom poo.

    Nothing ruins a day at the pool faster then the discovery of a floating log.

    The dog poo that I picked up the other day must have gone a lot farther than what I thought when I slung it.

    We had a shitter at the motel this weekend. This guy shit on the floor, the bed, the pillows and in the shower. Luckly it's a room we don't sell too often because it's right next to the office.

    Next time I go on vacation I'm sleeping in my truck.
