    George Bare Memorial Meet




    The Bare Family




    George began officiating in the mid 80's after his kids, Caroly n, Bill, and Betsy, began swimming for Mark Braun at University Swim Club.  He earned a reputation as Dr. DQ as he disqualified many LE swimmers including manof  his children's friends and even his own granddaughter. He countered his reputation b insisting he never DQ'd any swimmer: they DQ'd themselves.  He just informed them. George had no problem poking fun at himself andl his own blunders. After accidentallly falling in tne pool one day, he showed up the next day in trunks, snorkel mask. and fins, much to his family's  horror. Long after his own kids' swimming careers had ended  he continued officiating because he enjoyed.the athletes and Volunteers so much. He volunteered at many national meets where he, Andy Kuhl, and Stan Soja were better known as Larry, Daryl, and Daryl from Shenandoah. At Junior Nationals in Cleveland in 1989, the three of them started a tradition of performing skits at tne officials briefings, providing much hilarity. He developed wonderf ul friendships across tne country and internationally and reveled in the swim community. George also served on tne Lake Erie Board of Directors as Safetiy Chair and Officials Chair as well as high school rules interpreter. He enjoyed mentoring new officials and putting them througn their paces. His battle with dementia forced him into retirement a number of years ago.
