Hood College plans to open at 10:30 this morning

This is the MAC News for Thursday, December 6th.

This will be the last MAC News until Monday as I will be in Annapolis with my swimmers.  The phone line (301-696-8588) will be updated between now and then, if necessary. 

Hood College plans to open at 10:30 this morning, so all practices will run as scheduled today. 

The psych sheet for the NBAC meet has been posted and may be found here  For those officials waiting for parking passes, they were mailed Monday evening.  Please check with Coach Andy before leaving for the Academy. 

Not sure of the status of the timer sheet for the meet this weekend, but it probably hasn't changed much as there was no practice yesterday.  If your child is competing this weekend and you have yet to sign up for a timing slot, please contact Helene Williams TODAY at either dandhwilliams@aol.comor at 301-607-6475.

The Winter Frolics meet timer sheet is full except for Friday evening.  If your child is swimming on Friday, please step up and volunteer!  We MUST fill these slots and it is certainly easier for someone who's child is going to be there to fill that slot.   

Renee Hyrkas has Giant Eagle, Weis, and Super Fresh gift cards on hand for immediate delivery.  Some of our members have found that by using the Giant Eagle gift cards, they receive 20 cents off per gallon of gas at the Get Go for every $50 they spend.  If you shop at any of these stores, please consider buying these grocery gift cards for your purchases.  There's no additional charge and the team gets a percentage of the face value.  Renee may be reached at rhyrkas@hyrk1.comor 301-693-0491.
