This is the MAC News for Tuesday, December 23rd.
Don't forget, the Holiday Practice schedule (www.macswim.net/node/820) goes into affect tomorrow.
Senior Prep and Masters will have their last practice of the trimester this evening at the regular time. Practice will resume for these groups on Monday, January 5th.
Due to popular demand, the MAC coaching staff has announced that MAC swimmers wanting to swim in the Retriever Aquatic Club (RAC) Classic Invitational on Monday, January 19th, will be permitted to do so. This is a change from the original guidance that had MAC swimmers only swimming on Saturday and Sunday. The meet notice for the Retriever Aquatic Club (RAC) Classic Invitational is posted at the pool. Reminder - Martin Luther King's Birthday is January 19 and most schools in Frederick County are out. This meet will be conducted at the University of Maryland - Baltimore County (UMBC). This meet is only open to swimmers with "A" times and faster. The fee for participation in the meet on this additional day is $18. If your swimmer is not already entered in the meet, please fill out a meet entry form and place it, along with a check made out to MAC, in the meet entry folder by 6:00 pm, Tuesday, December 30th. If you have already registered for the meet, simply send Curt Southern an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org let him know that you want to have your child also swim on Monday. If you have questions as to whether your child should attend this meet, please ask your child's coach.
Don't forget, the new trimester is scheduled to begin on January 1st. If your swimmer will not be continuing with the team for the next trimester, please contact Fred Manning at email@example.com let him know of your withdrawal. Billing for the next trimester will be done the first week of January. On that same note, if you have an outstanding balance on your account, please clear those charges ASAP.
