The only groups training this evening are Seniors Red and Black

Welcome to the MAC News for Friday, August 31st.  Here are today's announcements:

The only groups training this evening are Seniors Red and Black.  Senior White practice is optional and is being combined with Senior Black.  Everyone will train from 6:00-8:00 pm in the outdoor pool. Don't forget, there is a send-off party for Nikki Hyrkas immediately following practice.  There is no practice on Saturday or Monday due to the Labor Day holiday.

Practice will be back in full swing beginning on Tuesday.  Tuesday's schedule is as follows:  Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:00, Senior White from 5:45-8:00, Age Group II from 6:00-8:00, and Senior Prep and Masters from 8:00-9:00 all in the outdoor pool.  Novice I will be in the indoor pool from 5:30-6:30 and Novice II and III will be there as well from 6:30-7:30.  There is no practice on Tuesday for Age Group I (they will resume practice on Wednesday from 6:00-7:45 pm in the outdoor pool).  Attached to this e-mail is the list of groups as I have them (still don't have Novice).  If your swimmer does not appear on this list and you are unsure which group they should be in, you may contact Coach Andy at 301-748-0916 or simply bring them to the first practice scheduled for the last group they were in.

There are some changes to the published schedule for next week only for Senior Red and Black.  Practice on Tuesday and Thursday will be from 4:00-6:00 and on Wednesday and Friday from 4:00-6:30.  There will be no practice on Saturday.  Instead, practice will be on Sunday from 9:00-11:00 am.

The bubble raising is set for Saturday, September 22nd.  Please reserve that date on your calendar now as we will need everyone's help on that day.  There is also prep work that will need to be completed the week prior to the raising.  Don Feinberg is the contact if you are able to help with the prep work.  He may be reached at the Hood pool office, 301-696-3484.

Hope everyone had a good first week of school!  Have a great weekend!
