This is the MAC News for Wednesday, January 30th (where did the month go???).
The deadline for ads for the Robert J Hogan Memorial Mini Meet program has been changed one last time. There is still time for you to place an ad cheering on your swimmer, but, the ads must be in the Hyrkas folder by 6:30 THIS EVENING! Don't forget, the price for the event sponsor ad has been dropped to $10. This ad appears in the meet program as part of the heading for an individual event.
Time is running out and we are still short a few volunteers for the meet. If you have yet to volunteer, do so TODAY! It's a lot of fun and this meet is a huge fund-raiser for our team. Everyone benefits from the profits as they help avoid a rise in due payments!
Hood College will be working on the showers in the indoor pool area on Thursday. However, despite the signs indicating the pool will be closed, all Novice groups will have practice as normally scheduled.
Please be aware that due to the meet, the only groups that will practice on Saturday will be Senior Red and Black. They will train from 6:30-9:00 am in the bubble.
A meet notice was posted for the CAA Mini and Open Distance Meet February 23rd and 24th. The coaching staff has decided that our team will not be attending the meet. If you have already signed up your swimmer for this meet, have no fear! Your entry fees will be credited to your account and will be available for use for a future meet.
If your swimmer is attending the GBSA Last Chance meet in a few weeks, please be sure that any new All-Star cuts achieved are reported to the coach on deck. The coaching staff will do its best not to miss anyone, but, with so many swimmers we want to be sure no one is left out who deserves a chance to swim at the All-Star meet. The All-Star qualifying times may be found here - www.mdswim.org/Athletes/08MDSTATEQUALIFYINGTIMES.pdf. Swimmers 14 & under should have bag tags with the qualifying times on them as well.
The practice schedule for today is normal - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:30 and Age Group I from 6:00-7:45 all in the bubble. There is no practice today for Senior White, Senior Prep, Age Group II, Novice, or Masters.
