Belatedly catching up this episode (Great to have Evan on!). One clarification though: I believe the Beach Meet Evan was talking about is the one that used to be held in Santa Monica. It was truly a blast and should be resurrected… though it was also in the days before sprung floors and a mat on sand is just not that same…Here’s some photographic evidence of the Cal men’s team competing circa 1980ish.
