This is the MAC News for Tuesday, November 6th.
There will be a slight modification to Senior Red and Black practice for TOMORROW. Practice for these groups will begin at 4:15 instead of 4:00.
Invitations to the NBAC Christmas Invitational meet will be placed in family folders in the next day or two. 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 about 20 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 firstname.lastname@example.org you have any questions regarding this matter.
