anyone here going to the meet this weekend at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio? Its the 12th Annual Mardi Gras meet, great meet and a very fast pool (see avatar). You even get beads if you win, otherwise you will have to earn beads the old fashion way if you dont win :laugh2:

I live in St. Louis now, but grew up a Buckeye, and am thinking about going to the Ohio State meet on April 12. Not this one, though. Have you swum in the OSU pool? I understand it's new or newish.

Yep. I have swam a few USS meets there at OSU. It is new pool, 2yr olds or so. Very nice complex and fast pool. I will be at that Ohio State meet in April.

Actually heard they are trying to get a masters Nationals there. Will see if that happens or not.

The Bill and Mae McClorkle Aquatic Pavilion can be seen at the Ohio State Men's Swimming home page at the following site. Very nice facility. Hope to see you in April. http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=17300&KEY=&SPID=10398&SPSID=89213

It is acrossed the sidewalk from the new RPAC that can be seen at: http://www.recsports.osu.edu/locations_rpac.asp

Together, these two facilities have got to be one of the nicest student rec centers in the country.

Hey Greg,

I will be at this meet. A few of us from my team (CSI) are going to come over. No fly for me at this meet. Needing to change things up. I am going to attempt my 1st ever 1650.

See you tomorrow.

See you there. I will be deck entering and will also be doing the 1650, unless its filled up. Hmm, what are chances of that lol

Have a safe trip and see you tomorrow.

Hey Greg,
How did the meet go for you? I had some good times and so not so good times. Was not disappointed though. I did the 100 backstroke for the 1st time. It was ok. Just used to swimming it as part of the 400 IM so I had trouble getting my arms to turn over to make it a sprint. Absolutely loved swimming the 1650. I went 23:17. I was very happy with that. I entered with a 24:00 thinking that was wishful thinking on my part. I held my splits at 42s and 43s. I am totally hooked and ready to swim it again. I think I can go faster.

Well, the butterfly events went really well for me considering it was just my second meet in over a year and half.

50 fly- 24.8
100 fly 53.73 (25.70 / 28.03)
200 fly 2:01.60 (27.5/31.6/31.4/31.2)

I know I could have been around 1:57 in 200 fly but not swimming it for yr and half made me a little hesitant. I went for a nice pace for most part.

Had plenty left in tank but I admit, was a little worried about that race. I have meet at end of month back at Miami Univ. Its the Senior USS meet. I will go after the 200 fly there.

Will you be going to the meet at Ohio State in April?
