This is the MAC News for Wednesday, November 7th. 

Don't forget, there is a slight modification to Senior Red and Black practice for this afternoon.  Practice for these groups will begin at 4:15 instead of 4:00. 

Invitations to the NBAC Christmas Invitational meet have been placed in family folders.  It is important for you to notify Curt Southern ( immediately if your swimmer will be unable to participate so that we may fill the slot with an alternate.  Please be aware that MAC is only allowed to bring 60 swimmers representative of all age groups.  In addition, swimmers 13 and older must have at least one "A" time in order to be eligible for the team.  The meet notice is currently available on our website on the Meet Schedule page.

Last Friday was the deadline for your swimmer's 2008 USA Swimming Registration.  Unfortunately, there are still a few families who have not turned in the registration or let Ed Goundry know that their child is not planning to continue after December 31st.  It is much easier for Ed to submit all of our registrations at one time to the Maryland registrar for processing, so please, if you are one of those who has not yet taken care of this process, do so TODAY!  Ed may be reached at fgoundry@vglaw.orgif you have any questions regarding this matter. 

As promised, here is the Novice schedule for both Thanksgiving and Christmas break.  All Novice swimmers will be off on Thursday, Nov. 22nd and Saturday, Nov. 24th.  Regular practice will resume on Tuesday, Nov. 27th.  The Novice groups' last practice before Christmas will be Thursday, Dec. 20th.  They will remain off the entire Christmas break until normal practice resumes on Thursday, Jan. 3rd.
