There will be swimming available to all USMS swimmers who plan to be in Omaha during the Olympic Trials. I have reserved pool time Monday, June 30 through Saturday, July 5. That is 6 days of swimming. The workouts will be from 6am - 7am. I plan to have a coach on deck during all 6 workouts. If any of you coaches out there are interested in volunteering to coach one of the mornings, please get in touch with me. More information to follow including pool directions.

That's great Erin. :applaud: I'm not going but just want to say thank you for those that are. If I was going, I'd be there at the workout.

Thanks for the consideration and for going the extra mile.

Amen to Jim's comments. What a great thing to do Erin. Wish I could be there too. I expect you'll have a good turnout every day. Jerry

Erin- perhaps it would be fun to make a main set out of all Phelps' swims from the meet? Including prelims of course.

Presumably on Phelps' interval as well, Peter?

Anyhow, Erin, Grace & I will be in attendance. Thanks for the work.

Oh no, Mel- much more humane than that- how about for each event your rough best time plus 30 seconds rest?

Hi. All. I have 2 full sets of tickets for trials. June 29-July 6. 15 total events. Unfortunately we will be unable to attend due to work conflicts and I'm hoping someone wants the tickets. They are in the 220 section, Row F. I hope to recoup my costs which were $760 for the 2 pairs of tx for the entire event. You can see a seating chart of the Qwest Center here:

Please let me know if you're interested and we can discuss off line. sarahwelch@comcast.net

I'm very interested in workouts at the pool. How can we get involved with this? Are we going to need any special credentials to get to the pool. I am familiar with the Qwest Center, as I was there this past weekend for the Swimvitational.

My guess is that Erin has reserved A pool not THE pool.

I'm betting that a bunch of unwashed master's swimmers won't be about to get within spitting distance of THAT pool.

Okay, I am not sure how to do this but I have created a flyer about the Master swimming workouts. I think it worked. Please share with others.

Nice job on the flyer, Erin. Makes me wish I was travelling to Omaha.
