Don't forget, there are some practice schedule changes for Friday and Saturday

This is the MAC News for Wednesday, October 17th. 

Don't forget, there are some practice schedule changes for Friday and Saturday of this week due to the fact there is no school on Friday and there is a meet for some on Saturday.  On Friday, Senior Red and Black will train from 5:15-7:30 am (7:00-7:30 will be drylands).  Age Groups I and II will train from 10:00-12:00 in the bubble.  There will be no afternoon practice for any of these groups.  Senior White practice on Friday will be normal.  On Saturday, there will be no practice in the morning for those swimmers attending the Quad Meet in the afternoon.  Those swimmers in Senior Red and Black not attending the Quad Meet will swim from 9:00-10:30 in the bubble.  All other practices on Saturday will be normal. 

Have you paid your first trimester dues or made your 2nd payment if you are on the payment plan yet?  If not, these fees are due immediately.  Any questions about your dues should be directed to Fred Manning at  Remember, MAC is a volunteer run organization and we appreciate your help in paying promptly. 

All returning swimmers should have received a USA Swimming Registration form for 2008 in their folders this week.  Extra copies may be found in the file marked “Blank Registration Forms.”  It is extremely important to complete the registration form and place it, along with a check for $64.00 made payable to “MAC", in the Membership file on or before Friday, November 2nd.  (There is additional processing by the Maryland Swimming registrar that must take place before your swimmer's registration will be renewed.)  The current registration will expire on December 31st and your child will not be allowed to practice or compete unless their registration is current.  If your child is not planning to continue after December 31st, please check the appropriate box on the handout attached to the form and return the handout to the "Membership" file.  If you have any questions, contact Ed Goundry at   

Remember, entries and fees for the HARY Harvestfest ( and the GBSA Thanksgiving Swimfest ( are due to the meet entry folder by 10:00 am Saturday. 

The practice schedule for today is normal - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:30, Age Group I from 6:00-7:45, and Senior Prep from 8:00-9:00 all in the bubble.  There is no practice today for Senior White, Age Group II, Novice, or Masters.
