This is the MAC News for Wednesday, July 9th.
The only group left to practice today is Age Group I. They will swim from 4:30-6:15 pm in the indoor pool at Hood.
Two meet notices have been posted in the baby pool area of the outdoor pool at Hood. Entries, along with a check to cover the fees, for BOTH meets are due to the meet entry folder no later than Saturday at 12:00. The first is the BCSC Unity Meet ( www.mdswim.org/Top_Nav/Meets/2007-2008_Schedule/Fourth_Annual_BCSC_Unity_Championship_Swim_Meet.htm) July 26-27 at UMBC. This meet is open to all MAC swimmers. Fees are $22.00 for one day and $41.00 for both. The second is 2008 Eastern Zone LC Age Group All-Star Swimming Championships (www.pvswim.org/eastzone/08ezlc_ma.pdf) August 6-9 at the Rockville Montgomery Aquatic Center. This meet is open to any swimmer who has met the qualifying standards listed in the meet notice. Fees are $8.00 per event plus the $3.00 surcharge. As always, if you have any questions as to whether your child should enter these meets, please speak to their coach. Please note that any Zone qualifying times achieved at either the NBAC meet this weekend or the BCSC meet will be added to the team's entries. Make sure you or your swimmer notifies the coaches of any times achieved to be sure they are included in our entries.
Don't forget, if you pay your MAC dues on the installment plan, your last payment of the trimester is due by next Tueday.
