PUMPKIN-PASS/IM SWIM: 200
Divide all swimmers into 2 teams. Team #1 does pumpkin pass while Team #2 does a 50 Fly. When all members of Team #2 finish their 50 Fly, they do pumpkin pass while Team #1 swims a 50 Fly. Repeat until both teams have done 1 X 50 in each stroke.

4 swims on 1:30. Your choice of distance, stroke (or kick), and equipment. Just make the sendoff.
