If your child is attending the GTAC/MAC Winter Frolics meet ...

This is the MAC News for Friday, December 19th. 

If your child is attending the GTAC/MAC Winter Frolics meet this weekend, please be aware of the following.  Dive-over starts will be in affect in all sessions.  Have your child discuss this with their coach if they are unfamiliar with a dive-over start.  The warm-up and start times for the afternoon sessions have been pushed back 1 hour.  Warm-ups for the afternoon sessions will be begin at 1:00 and the session will start at 2:00 on both Saturday and Sunday. 

We have had a few more cancellations in the timer department for the Winter Frolics meet.  We are in DESPARATE need of 1 timer for this evening, 1 for Saturday afternoon, and 1 for Sunday afternoon.  We have plenty of swimmers attending this meet.  This should not be a problem.  If you have not already volunteered, please contact Helene Williams at dandhwilliams@aol.comor at 301-607-6475 to offer your help.  This is a major fundraiser for our team and we will not get our portion of the profits if we do not provide our portion of the help! 

A note of congratulations is in order.  Jeb and Anna Beaver are the proud new parents of a baby girl!  Cora Janvier Beaver was born yesterday at 12:07 pm.  She weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz.  Can't wait to see her! 

The new trimester is scheduled to begin on January 1st.  If your swimmer will not be continuing with the team in the next trimester, please contact Fred Manning at fredmanning@comcast.netto 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.
