Everyone looking for a great meet at a great facility to start off your long course season, I'd encourage you to come out to Tempe over the Memorial Day weekend to swim at the Cactus Classic at Arizona State University. The cut times are fairly fast, but it would be nice to see a strong group of Masters' swimmers support this event.

In addition to being a great event, a portion of every event entered will go to the "SAVE ASU SWIMMING" foundation to support ASU's men's swimming program.

See attached flyer and check back at www.scottsdaleswim.com (http://www.scottsdaleswim.com) on the events link for any further information and future updates.

I'm in! The only question is are going to swim an 800 free relay?

Paul, I'm definitely going to swim the meet. Which days I swim will be dependent upon the events for me and events for my daughter. If we can compete as Arizona Masters, I'm game for an 800 free relay.

Kurt: you in?

We just need a fourth ... time to start calling down to Tucson to get some guys to come up.

Now, what would be really fun is if Ande brought a gang from Longhorn to race.

OK: entries are due in about a week for this wonderful event: http://www.teamunify.com/assac/__eventform__/30809_2009%20Cacts%20Classic%20Meet%20Flyer.pdf. It's a great facility and great way to kick off your LCM season. Plus, every time you dive in for a race, part of your entry fee is being funneled to the non-profit foundation set up to save ASU Men's swimming.

I dropped my entries in the mail today, Tall Paul is already in and rumor has it that Dennis Baker will school the young kids for yet another year.

I didn't know that they had 50s of the strokes this year until Friday, so I put my entry in only for the 50 breast, which will take place on Memorial Day. I'll be just starting my taper for the Southwest Invite in Tucson 12 days later, so this will be just a "see how it goes" swim.

Cool. I wish I could make it down for the Southwest Invite, but can't ... maybe next year.

My prediction is that Jeff will scorch the pool with his 50M Breast and leave a bunch of kids walking around wondering what they just witnessed.

That's "hot it goes" when Jeff is in the water for sprint events.

Actually, Jeff cranked out a fast 200 Free this spring at ASU so maybe a repeat performance is in order ;-)
