WASHINGTON OPEN TRAVEL MEET
Dear Swimmers & Parents,
This is our annual Washington Open Travel Meet. It is a very popular meet for our TTST older competitive swimmers. The 2018 TTST selection is objectively set at the Sierra Nevada JR+ Senior Time standard, also the same standard to be on the TTST Senior Team for training. It is an Open Meet, where anyone can swim on relays and do time trails. If you have the individual event times listed on the meet information you can also swim those events and 2 bonus events as well. In general SN JR+ Times are close to the 2018 WA Open Time cuts.
Detailed itinerary will be coming out in November, and I would like all declarations to attend completed by the end of November. Team announcement will happen the first week of December!
I would like to extend this years trip, if budget allows, to return on Monday, January 15th (MLK) holiday. We will very likely be on similar flight numbers with Alaska Airlines from Reno. Here was last years itinerary for reference: 2018 itinerary is still being made. Plan departure January 11th, Return January 15th, 2018
