Orders for the Bulk Buy MAC swim suit and apparel order are due to Pools, Patios, and Porches by SATURDAY.  Don't forget to let Paul Gorgol (at Pools, Patios, and Porches) know if your swimmer will be needing a championship suit (FSII, FS Pro, or LZR) for the meets in December or Feb/March.

We are still looking for an Assistant Meet Director for the Robert J Hogan Memorial Mini Meet that we host in February.  This position is a great way to learn how a sanctioned Maryland swim meet is run and a great way to help young swimmers throughout Maryland.  For more information about what is involved, please contact Fred Manning at  Be on the lookout for more opportunities to volunteer as we get closer to the meets we host. 

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 and Masters from 8:00-9:00 all in the bubble.  There is no practice today for Senior White, Age Group II, or Novice.
