ALL families whose swimmers are attending the LSC Championship meet MUST volunteer to work a shift during the meet (most of our assigned shifts are timing). Please contact Helene Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org at 301.607.6475 with your availability ASAP. We have shifts during both the preliminaries and finals so if your swimmer is likely to swim during finals, please volunteer for one of those slots. Also, anyone whose swimmer is competing Thursday night, please be aware that your swimmer must provide their own timer and counter (and these do NOT count as a volunteer shift).
Leslie O'Connell has a hotel room for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night which she cannot cancel and will not be able to use for the LSC Championship meet. The room is at the Loews hotel in downtown Annapolis and is within walking distance of the Naval Academy. The room normally runs $369.00/night. Leslie got it for $75/night and is willing to accept $200 for the room, if anyone is interested. For more information, contact Leslie at 240-543-7744 or 301-865-9050.
Tomorrow, Coach John will be coaching the Masters group in a timed 5000 yard swim. Swimmers may arrive early and should be ready to get in the water at 7:45 to warm-up.

Any Senior or AGII swimmer not competing in the LSC Championship meet on Thursday (but who is competing in the meet) may either swim from 4:00-5:00 at Hood or may swim with Coach Andy in Annapolis on Thursday.
