Thank you...I am entered now...See everyone in Mesa!

I'm looking forward to meeting you in Mesa, James! Good luck! :cheerleader: Congrats. on being able to swim in the max. number of events. I only qualify in the 50yd. breaststroke; I'm too far off NQT's for the 100 and 200yd breaststroke events. Oh well; I'm looking forward to swimming in some relays this year, in addition to my three events. And, I am most looking forward to meeting other Forumites who I didn't meet last year. You and That Guy are on my list! :agree:

:applaud: Awesome, Michael! It looks like the long distance events have become your specialty. Hey, lay off the :chug: at Deb's party, because you'll have to swim the next day! And, you can count on me to be your :cheerleader: section! Need a lap counter? I'll be there! :banana:

As I'm sure you have already guessed, my three events will be the 50, 100, and 200 breaststroke. I'd like to swim 5, but I'm only qualified in the 50. But, I'll be in the relays! :agree:

Hey, I just posted a thread on this, but Georgia got the 2011 SwimFest, May 20-22! Bruce and I are keeping our guest bedroom open for you if you want it!

Can't you swim 4 then? This has always been a small source of confusion for me; I thought that BECAUSE you got an NQT - you could actually sign up for more events. So your event total is (Events with NQT + Events w/out NQT) or is that completely off kilter?

From what I understand, I would have to make NQT's in three events to be able to swim in 5 individual events at Nationals. So, since I only qualified in one of those three events, I can only swim three individual events- plus relays.

bzaks1424 is correct.

Anyone can swim 3 events at Nationals with no qualifying times. If you have one qualifying time, you can swim that event plus 3 others. If you have 2 qualifying times, you can swim those two events plus 3 others. If you have 3 qualifying times, you can swim those three events, plus 3 others.

Relays have no qualifying times and do not count toward your 6 event limit.

Elaine - since you have 1 NQT in the 50 Breast you can swim that one...then for your 3 non-NQT events you can do the 100 Breast, 200 Breast and the 200 Fly!!!
:banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:
Just a suggestion...I thought it was pretty good. Remember that breast and fly are both short-axis strokes, so they compliment each other. :)

:afraid: :afraid: :afraid: :afraid: :afraid: That, my friend is for your 200 Fly idea! How about a compromise and I settle on 25 fly as part of the 100IM?! :agree: :D

200 fly is where swimmers make a statement about being tough or is it stupid?

I would rather go across the country and swim a 200 fly, 400 IM, or even a 1650 :afraid: for that matter. Why spend hundreds of dollars to go somewhere for a race that lasts less than 23 seconds? Plus I'm pretty good at the 200 fly. :banana: I'm not trying to make a statement...I just do it because I can.
I know many others that swim it for the same reason. They may not be incredibly fast at it, but when they are in the mid to upper 70's of age, and swimming the 200 fly on a regular basis in meets...that deserves a big :applaud:.
We have one 76 Female in our workout group that is almost done with 1000 - 1650 flys. Yes that is correct...1000!!! She comes all 5 days a week to practice and swims a 1650 fly every morning to start off her workout. She told me the other day that she only has 20 more or so to go to make the 1000 mile fly mark from whatever date she started. Congratulations to you Peony Munger...:applaud: :party2:

Or the 50 back!

The best athletes are sprinters. But I guess if you don't have power and speed, there is the 200 fly and distance free leftover. :)
