This is the MAC News for Friday, August 29th.
Be on the lookout for some practice schedule changes that will most likely affect all groups next week. The indoor pool at Hood is currently closed for repairs on the hot water heater so all schedules (including lessons and lap swims) must be reworked to accomodate everyone. As soon as the schedule is ironed out, an update will be posted on the website, the phone line (301-696-8588), and via e-mail.
Also be on the lookout for entry information for the ASC Freestyle meet Oct. 3-5. October seems like a very long way away at this point, however, this meet fills up quickly and we must get our entries in early to ensure attendance at the meet.
Calling all current officials and those of you interested in becoming a USA Swimming certified official - the Annual Maryland Swimming Officials Clinic will take place on Sunday, September 21st from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm at UMBC. This is a must for all current officials to maintain their eligibility. It is also the place to be if you are interested in becoming an official. Everyone should plan to be in attendance at 8:00 am. There will be separate break out sessions for each level of official as in years past but there will be changes to the program. More information will be available soon on the Maryland Swimming website, www.mdswim.org.
The only groups to practice today are Senior Red and Black. They will swim from 6:15-8:00 pm in the outdoor pool at Hood. Remember, there is no practice this weekend or on Monday for anyone due to the Labor Day holiday. A schedule for next week will be posted as soon as it is available.
Enjoy your long weekend!
