Don't forget that MAC is holding 2 orientation meetings for interested new and returning parents this Saturday, September 15th in a 2nd floor classroom in the indoor pool building (there will be signs pointing out the way). One session will run from 9:30-10:30 and the second from 10:30-11:30. This will be a "nuts-and-bolts" overview of our team and the swimming world to educate parents on such areas as meet participation/entries, time standards, conditioning strategy, MAC finances/corporate governance, swimming gear, USA/Maryland swimming and other topics related to our sport. This meeting will also be a chance to talk with MAC's head coach and some members of our Board of Directors.
Remember, the bubble will be going up on Saturday, September 22nd at 8:00 am. We ask that every family provide help, but especially our big, strong, dads and older swimmers. There is also prep work that needs to be completed next week prior to the raising. If you are available at any time next week, please contact Don Feinberg, at 301-696-3484, and let him know.
On Sunday, September 23rd, Maryland Swimming will be hosting their annual Officials clinic, beginning at 8:00 am at UMBC in Catonsville. This clinic is a must for any previously certified officials to maintain their currency. In addition, it is open to anyone who is interested in becoming a Maryland certified official. More information may be found at www.mdswim.org/Officials/Annual%20Maryland%20Swimming%20Officials%20Clinic%202007.pdf.
