Email Update from BR Ryall (2/7/2018):


Attached are the following 3 documents
1-Warm-up Assignments.  Friday is open warm-up
2-Timing Assignments.  We covered as much as we could.  1650 will have to provide their own timers.
3-Fees.  If you are bringing your check please make sure to hand it to me.
Friday night.  I had no objections so Friday will be as follows.  5pm warm-up, open warm-ups only.  5:30pm Meet Start.
There is weather in the forecast.  We will be running meet as planned at this time.  All sessions other than Friday PM can be run without positive check-in and still comfortably be completed within the timeline.  
Finally, we will be pushing to MM.  Please let parents know.
If you have any questions let me know.



Email Update from BR Ryall (2/6/2018):




I will be updating the webpage daily, so if you see any issues please let me know.


Friday night.
Here is what we have done in the past - 5:00pm warm-up, 5:15pm Check-in closes, 5:30pm Meet starts.  Warm-up will be open for Friday.


I understand this is different than packet, but I see no other way to get the session done in a timely manner.  If you have objections let me know.


I will have Timing and Warm-up out tomorrow.




Email Update from BR Ryall (2/5/2018):



I have updated the Entry List, Psych Sheet, and Timelines on our event page.  If you see any errors please let me know.


I will get out warm-up assignments and timing assignments as early as possible, hopefully Wednesday morning.


I will be following up concerning Friday as soon as I get some more information from UIC.  It has been noted I have our start time in the timeline and the start time in the packet different, so please be on the lookout for that email.  Friday night is long right now, so sooner we can start it the better.


If you have any changes please email them to me.





This meet is intended for ALL WEST Swimmers!!  This is our LAST REGULAR SEASON MEET before Feed the Fire, Regionals, State and Nationals.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to get your swimmers in this meet as the season closes.  They need to race as much as possible leading up to the Championship Season.

This is a great meet to try to make some qualifying times and is essential if your swimmer does not have any qualifying times and can't go to Feed the Fire.
