Today is Friday, April 25th and this is the MAC News.
Don't forget, there are some practice schedule changes for today and tomorrow due to the NAAC meet this weekend. Any Senior Red or Black swimmer not attending the meet this evening should plan to attend practice with Senior White from 5:45-8:00. Tomorrow, Senior Red, Black, and White and Age Group I and II swimmers not at the meet will all swim from 9:00-10:30 in the bubble.
Entries and fees for all 3 meets MAC plans to attend in June, the Naval Academy Aquatic Club (NAAC) "A" Buster (for swimmers with slower than "A" times) to be held May 31 and June 1, at the US Naval Academy, the North Baltimore Aquatic Club (NBAC) 2008 Long Course Championships (www.mdswim.org/Schedule/2008NBACJuneMeetNotice.doc) to be held June 6-9, at the Meadowbrook Aquatic Center, and the Green Terror Aquatic (GTAC) Independence Meet (www.mdswim.org/Schedule/INDEPENDENCEMEET2008.doc) for swimmers with slower than "A" times, to be held June 21-22, at the UMBC outdoor facility, are due to the meet entry folder by 12:00 pm TOMORROW.
Please be aware that the summer trimester begins on May 1st and runs through the end of August. Bills will be coming out next week. If your child is in the water on May 1st, you will be responsible for the entire trimester's dues. The coaching staff highly encourages everyone to continue with the program through the summer!
MAC is proud to announce that the creative talents of the Novice Group (all 39 swimmers) will be submitting art for the Kathy Lynn Rossick art show to be held at the MAC banquet on May 4, 2008. Their art will go on display, as table centerpieces, and then be sold at the banquet. The proceeds of the art show will go to the Rossick Educational Trust.
The bubble will be coming down for the summer on Saturday, May 10th. We will need help from as many of our families as possible, especially our dads and older swimmers. More information will follow soon, but get this date on your calendar now!
Here is another date for your calendar. May 20th will be the date for MAC team and swimmer photos. Roby's Photo Studio (who takes many of the area summer swim team photos) will be taking photos of training groups and individual swimmers. The packages are very reasonably priced and part of the cost of each package will be donated back to MAC. Specific times for each training group will be announced very soon.
On Saturday, May 31st MAC will be hosting a biathlon fund-raiser to raise awareness for cancer and to help support the Rossick family. All entries, along with the $30 registration fee, are due to Coach Lauren's folder by May 15th. The event is open to all MAC and Hood Hammerhead families, including parents and former swimmers!
The practice schedule for today is as follows - Senior White, Senior Prep and any Senior Red and Black swimmers not at the meet will swim from 5:45-8:00 and Age Group II from 6:00-8:00 in the bubble. Age Group I will be in the indoor pool from 4:30-6:15. There is no practice today for Novice or Masters. On Saturday, Senior White and any Senior Red or Black swimmers not at the meet, along with Age Group I and II swimmers not at the meet will swim in the bubble from 9:00-10:30. Novice will be normal - 10:30-11:30 in the bubble. Morning practice next week will be on Wednesday and Friday.
Best of luck to all MAC swimmers competing at the Naval Academy this weekend.
