At the monthly meeting of the MAC Board of Directors

This is the MAC News for Monday, February 25th. 

At the monthly meeting of the MAC Board of Directors, it was decided that families with delinquent accounts (those who have not made at least 2 payments towards their Winter 2008 balance) will not be allowed to have their swimmers participate in future meets (including Maryland State Championships and Junior All Stars).  Statements were sent to all accounts via e-mail last week.  Severely delinquent accounts will result in swimmers not being allowed to participate in practice.  If your account is delinquent, please bring it current by TODAY.  If you have any questions about your statement, have not received it, have a financial hardship, or would like to discuss your balance, please contact Fred Manning at 

Don't forget, there are some practice schedule changes for most groups this week due to the upcoming LSC Championships and Junior All-Stars.  Please take careful note of the practice schedule at the end of this message. 

Sign-ups sheets have been posted for volunteers for the Maryland LSC Championship meet (All-Stars).  We are looking for 4 timers for EACH session (excluding Thursday night and 1650 as those swimmers must provide their own timers).  In addition, we need someone to post results for EACH of the FINALS sessions.  As not every swimmer will attend the finals sessions, if you are fairly certain your child will be swimming in these sessions (all relays are swum at the conclusion of finals), please fill those slots first.  Timers are asked to report to the deck at 7:45 am for each of the prelimary sessions and at 5:00 pm for each of the finals sessions. 

Renee Hyrkas has additional Marriott SCRIP cards available for purchase for anyone who is staying at a Marriott property for All-Stars or Junior All-Stars.  Our team has already made almost $1000 this year using these cards.  If you are interested, contact Renee at 

The practice schedule for today is as follows - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-5:15, Senior White and Senior Prep from 5:30-7:00, and Age Group II from 6:00-7:40 all in the bubble.  Age Group I will be in the indoor pool from 4:30-6:15.  There is no practice today for Novice or Masters.
