 In addition, Speedo has notified all of its dealers that they are running extremely short on their championship suits (FSII, FSPro, and LZR) due to the worldwide success of the Olympics.  Because of this, Pools, Patios, and Porches is trying to stock up early on these suits.  If you know that your swimmer will be needing a new suit for the Christmas meet in December or any of the season-ending meets in Feb/Mar, please contact Paul Gorgol at the store ASAP to let him know which type of suit and a size so he can do his best to have that suit on hand.  If your swimmer is 12 years old or younger, please be aware that beginning in May 2009, USA Swimming has banned suits that extend above the neck, past the shoulder, or below the knee for swimmers of this age.  Think twice about spending extra money on a legskin or full body suit for these swimmers! 

The practice schedule for today is normal - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:30, Senior White from 5:45-8:00, and Age Group II from 6:00-8:00 all in the bubble.  Age Group I will be in the indoor pool from 4:30-6:15.  There is no practice today for Senior Prep, Novice, or Masters.  The practice schedule for tomorrow is normal as well - Senior Red and Black from 6:30-9:00 (please check with Coach Lehner regarding the start time), Senior White and Age Group II from 9:00-10:30, and Novice from 10:30-11:30 all in the bubble.  Age Group I will be in the indoor pool from 7:30-9:00.  There will be morning practice on Monday from 5:15-6:30. 

Best of luck to everyone competing in the CAA meet this weekend.
