This is the MAC News for Thursday, November 29th.
There have been some schedule changes for the NBAC Christmas Invitational intended to allow finals to end a little earlier and to allow all swimmers a break before finals begin. Warm-ups for all morning sessions will begin at 7:00 with a session start of 8:00. The warm-ups for the afternoon sessions will begin at 11:30 with a session start of 12:30. Friday and Saturday warm-ups for finals will begin at 4:45. These sessions will start at 5:30. Finally, the warm-up for Sunday finals will begin at 4:15 and the session will start at 5:00.
As in the past, we have been asked to provide timers for one lane (3 timers) for all sessions at this meet. (It should be noted that these sessions do not count toward the 2 session volunteer commitment mentioned below as this is not a meet we host). A sign-up sheet for this will be posted soon. We have 60 swimmers attending this meet so no family should have to work more than once! Also, please be smart about when you volunteer. Not every family will have a swimmer competing in finals. If you are relatively certain your child might be one who does, save your shift for a finals session. We thank you in advance for your help!
A sign-up sheet will also be posted this evening for timers for the GTAC/MAC Winter Frolics Meet. We need to provide 6 timers for EVERY session because we are co-hosts of this meet. Your child does not need to be participating in order to volunteer. Remember, as members of this team, each family is required to provide a volunteer for at least 2 sessions of the meets we host. Let's be sure we get all of the positions filled!
Helene Williams will be in the bubble this evening from 5:45-8:00 taking orders for MAC gear - a great way to get some Christmas shopping finished and raise a little money for the team at the same time!
The practice schedule for today is a follows - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-5:30, Senior White from 5:30-7:00, Age Group II from 6:00-8:00, and Senior Prep and Masters from 8:00-9:00 all in the bubble. Novice I will be in the indoor pool from 5:30-6:30 and Novice II and III will be there as well from 6:30-7:30. There is no practice today for Age Group I. There is NO morning practice for Seniors tomorrow.
