The GL Zone site seems to be a means to be redirected to all the LMSC's in the GL Zone, or to USMS site resources. Not sure why the GL Zone site even needs to be maintained.

Think it would be great to post the Great Lakes Open Water Series swims here...dates, distances, venues, etc. Useful to have some place on the web where we can view what's going on in our immediate area, especially when it's easier to travel in the summer!

Jennifer, I took a look at the michiganmasters.com site, and they did a good job of listing long-distance swims (http://www.michiganmasters.com/distance.html) in the area for 2010. As long as your webmaster does that again this year, you'll have your list of possible races.

That was a great meet...first time I've ever seen entertainment at a swim meet! Provided a lot of fun for my kids who were watching me swim for the first time.

DEF run this meet like this in the future and publicize it....could become a very big Midwest event...

Hi, Jennifer!
I started a list of upper Midwest swims under Illinois:
OW swims, upper Midwest, 2011 - U.S. Masters Swimming Discussion Forums

and will update it soon. Info on some swims in the GLOWS series won't be available until sanction numbers have been issued. New this year is a coordinator for GLOWS (Marcia Cleveland did the heavy lifting the first year); I will try to find his coordinates as well.

USMS on the top page of this site in one of the drop-down menus has started including under OW meets some not sanctioned by USMS or USA-S. That expands the list of potential swims.

If you are in the UP, Minnesota has an ambitious list of OW swims this year.

Hope this helps! :)
