This is the MAC News for Monday, October 8th.
There were lots of great swims this past weekend at the UMBC pool. A complete wrap-up will be posted here once the meet results are available.
Congratulations to Coach Jeb who recently competed in the Towson University alumni swim meet and came home with the gold medal in the 50 free!
The bulk order form for MAC Speedo apparel (suits, bags, sweats, etc.) will be available in everyone's folder this evening after 6:00 pm. Additional copies will be placed on top of the file cabinet. Simply take your order form to Pools, Patios, and Porches no later than October 27th to receive the discounted prices. Anything in stock may be purchased on the spot. The remaining items will be ordered. Also, be aware there are coupons attached to the order form this year for additional items available at the store.
On a similar note, don't forget that Pools, Patios, and Porches will be hosting an Aquatic Fitness Open House on Saturday from 9:30-3:30. Speedo will be there featuring many new products.
There are 3 meet notices currently posted in the baby pool area of the bubble.

Swimmers may swim 4 events per day (1 event only on Friday) at a cost of $4.50 per event plus the $3.00 surcharge. A note about the Friday events - Coach Jeb will be attending the meet Friday evening to allow MAC swimmers to participate during that session, however, the coaching staff requests that 13 and older swimmers do not enter the 500 free as the session tends to run late.
