The Palatine Swim Team is sending me info on a "split" LCM meet. Half the events on the first week with the balance the second. I spoke with the meet director who was very excited about the concept of IM participation.

Hi, Craig,

Unfortunately, I will be out of the area on your proposed dates, but I hope everyone will come to the LCM meet at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL, July 27th. We have our sanction and the pool is measured. It's a fast pool and several National records have been set there in the past.

Does Palatine plan to get sanctions for these meets?

Please contact Nadine Day <NDAYPT@aol.com> and let her know the plans.

i am not familiar with the Palatine Swim Team. Is that the Buehler Breakers, who swim in Palatine?

I think that Palatine Swim Club is a USA Swimming team, not a USMS club. I believe that in order for Masters swimmers to swim at a USA Swim meet, we would each need to join USA Swimming.

I mentioned getting a Masters sanction, but I don't think that alone would work. Our times would count, though, for USMS top ten, etc., if we sent them to Joe Magiera in a timely fashion. I would also imagine we'd need to be sure that the pool was measured.
