This is the MAC News for Thursday, January 24th.
At last check we were still short of the needed number of volunteers to successfully run our biggest fund-raiser of the year. If you have been waiting to sign up, please don't delay any longer! NOTE THAT IF THE EXISITNG SLOTS FOR A JOB ARE FILLED, PLEASE DO NOT ADD A SLOT FOR YOUR NAME! WE NEED TO FILL THE EMPTY POSITIONS! Also, please be aware, the meet is scheduled to be completed by 4:30 on Sunday afternoon - plenty of time to get to your Super Bowl party! Phone calls will be made soon to those families who have not yet volunteered. Please help cut down on the number of calls we need to make by signing up today!
In addition, there is a sign-up sheet for concession donations posted on the bulletin board outside the locker rooms in the bubble. This sheet is filling up quickly, but, there are still some empty spaces. Remember, anything that is donated will not need to be purchased and will increase our profits. Sign up today! Donations may be dropped off to either Terri Carder or Jenny Beiter in the indoor pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays or to Helene Williams most other days in the bubble.
Tomorrow is the deadline for both the cover design contest and the program ads. All covers and ads should be placed in the Hyrkas folder no later than 6:00 pm tomorrow.
If you are interested in becoming a Maryland certified official or just learning about what is involved, our team will be hosting a clinic for entry level officials at the meet on Saturday. The clinic will take place in the cafeteria beginning at noon and will run for about an hour. Many of our experienced officials are the parents of older swimmers and we need to begin "restocking" the ranks. Please consider giving it a try!
The practice schedule for today is normal - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:15, Senior White from 5:45-8:00, 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. Seniors will have morning practice tomorrow from 5:15-6:30.
