This is the MAC News for Friday, July 25th.
Here is MAC's warm-up schedule for the BCSC Meet this weekend. On Saturday, MAC will warm-up in Lane 4 for the morning session from 7:00-7:25 and again in Lane 4 for the afternoon session from 12:00-12:25. On Sunday, the morning session warm-up will take place in Lane 4 from 7:25-7:50 and the afternoon session warm-up will be in Lane 5 from 12:25-12:50.
Don't forget that all Zone attendees are eligible for a new racing suit discounted at 40%. Families have 2 options - they may contact Paul Gorgol at Pools, Patios, and Porches (301-698-1200, 179-D Thomas Johnson Drive, Frederick, or email@example.com) or they may purchase through Underwater Wear (301-527-8326, 615 S. Frederick Ave - lower level B and C, Gaithersburg). Pools, Patios, and Porches would like to receive orders by Monday and have also offered a 25% discount for Zone swimmers on bags and warm-ups. There has been no deadline set for the Underwater Wear purchases. Inventory may be limited in some styles, sizes, and colors, so it would be best to order ASAP. Please be sure to mention you are a MAC Zone qualifier when ordering.
