Game of the Week

7/31: Beach Sports: Santa Barbara Fiesta Junior Lifeguard Competition: Up to 1,000 junior lifeguards from Pismo Beach to Newport Beach will compete Friday in a variety of contests that require endurance, quickness, and skill. The beach flags event is a favorite with spectators. “For purists, the run-swim-run race is everything a lifeguard is supposed to do,” says Rich Hanna, supervisor of the Santa Barbara Junior Lifeguard program. Besides the city-sponsored team, other area contestants will represent the Carpinteria, Hendry’s Beach, and UCSB programs. 9am-2pm. East Beach, 1118 E. Cabrillo Blvd. Free. Call 897-2680 or email
