Practice changes due to the weather

This is the MAC News for Wednesday, December 5th. 

With the onset of flurries, this is a quick reminder regarding practice changes due to the weather.  All changes or cancellations will be communicated via e-mail, on the website, and on the telephone hotline (301-696-8588) whenever possible.  Remember, if the Hood campus closes, we are unable to hold practice.  If there is any question, please check one of these sources before leaving for the pool. 

Almost 1/2 of the timer slots for the NBAC meet this weekend are still unfilled.  We MUST get this taken care of ASAP.  Friday morning's session is especially important!  If you haven't signed up yet, please do so today.  If you are willing to help, but unable to get to the pool, you may e-mail ( or phone (301.607.6475) Helene Williams with your preferences. 

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. 

The practice schedule for today is as follows - Senior Red and Black and those Senior White swimmers partipicating in the meet this weekend from 4:00-5:00, Age Group I from 6:00-7:45, and Senior Prep from 8:00-9:00 all in the bubble.  There is no practice today for the rest of Senior White, Age Group II, Novice, or Masters.
