Beach. These sports surround us, but we don't have any facility for
it here. We have Huntington Beach teams in water polo and swimming
who have hit world class levels of competition, but we have no
facility, just our locals high school pools, which have limited
space, and limited quality. Time to step up Huntington Beach, after
the sports complex fiasco. Why don't we make it right, build a
