Warmups are from 7:30-8:30 with the meet starting at 8:35 a.m. Every other USMS Nationals I recall attending had the events starting at 8:00.

Good, I prefer starting later even though I know it means ending later.

I agree. Especially for those of us coming from Pacific time.

Yup, that means an extra 35 minutes at the bar the night(s) before!

I am on the Championship Committee, and if I remember correctly, I believe the reason for the late start was to accomodate an early swim practice for those swimmers that have qualified to attend Olympic Trials.

Oh, good. Then Susan von der Lippe can get some extra yards in!

I'll take it... just as long as they don't drop my 6th event because the meet is now running long. :rant3:
