It seems that some people are getting the itch for Far Westerns. At this point I realy don’t have much information other than . . . . I (Dave) will be attending the Stanford Grand Prix meet with 3 -5 swimmers that same weekend, so Nicole will be the coach attending Far Westerns.
On Monday, Nicole told me that she would like this not to be a "team" travel meet. What this means is that the team will not be traveling as a unit, and the team will not be responsible for care and chaperoning of the swimmers.
We do have a block of 6 rooms at the Amerisuites hotel from 4/2--4/6. The cost of the rooms is $127 on 4/2 and $108 on 4/3-4/6 (check out the 6th). If you are looking to stay with or near other cast swimmers, just let me (Dave) know and I will reserve one of these 6 rooms for you. You will be welcome to find another hotel in the area if you like - the meet format has a listing of them on page 5 (see format under the far westerns link on this site).
I should have a listing of swimmers eligibility out by next monday, so swimmers can start arranging travel and possibly arranging a family to stay with. The meet is still 5 weeks away, and we have rooms reserved, so there’s no need to panic. We will have detailed information out early next week.
