This is the MAC News for Wednesday, October 8th.
TODAY is the deadline for entries for the CBAC Fall Warm-up Meet and the HARY Hurricane Harvest Festival. All entries are due to the meet entry folder by 6:00 pm. If you have questions as to whether your child should attend either of these meets, please ask your child's coach.
Meet notices for the two NBAC meets MAC will compete in during the month of November have yet to be posted by the meet director. So, the information we have concerning these meets is very limited. However, our coaching staff is concerned that if we don't start collecting meet entries now, we will not have enough time to get our entries in before the meet shuts out. As of today, this is what we know about the meets: The NBAC Fall FASTival will be held November 8-9 at UMBC. This meet is open to swimmers 13 & over with 'A' times and faster and to 12 & under swimmers with 'BB' times and faster. Fees are $23 for one day or $43 for both. The NBAC Fall Warm-up meet will be held November 14-16 at Towson University. This meet is open to all swimmers and there are no time standards. Fees are $8 for Friday, $23 for Saturday or Sunday, $28 for Friday and Saturday or Friday and Sunday, or $48 for all three days. Entries for both meets are due to the meet entry folder by SATURDAY at 12:00 pm. As soon as the meet notices become available, they will be posted.
All parking passes have been placed in family files in the filing cabinet in the baby pool area. If you requested a parking pass for the Chapel lot, please pick up your pass and begin using the lot as soon as possible. Files for new families have been prepared and are in the filing cabinet thanks to Toni James.
MAC is currently running a Joe Corbi's pizza fundraiser to support the Frederick Rescue Mission. All orders are due to the Fundraiser folder on or before Saturday, October 18th. Questions should be directed to Cheryl Knapp at 240-394-0226 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be no practice on Saturday for any of the Senior groups (Red, Black, or White) due to the EST meet Saturday afternoon. All other practices on Saturday will be normal.
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.
