Prelims/finals format means you'll likely get multiple chances to swim.

I'll be in the Phoenix area that weekend! Is it as simple as registering with USAS and showing up? Or do I need to actually do another USAS meet first to get "official" qualifying times?

pwb, I would but I already have plans for memorial day weekend. Thanks for the offer though.Consider this one, then, in Vegas -- http://www.clubassistant.com/c/8B6A80C/file/meets/2012/LVLCJune2012.pdf. This is a fast INDOOR pool and there's good competition. If I can swing a cheap flight, I'm going to make it a day trip from here. If you're coming from out east, fly in Friday night and be mellow, race Saturday, then enjoy the bright lights of Vegas on Saturday night. They run a good meet.

I've gone to this meet a few times and it's a LOT of fun!

If you want a great trip plus a really good pool, go to Bend. The pool was re-done a few years ago and is really fast. Plus the host team does a wonderful job of hosting. And you can't beat the scenery.

I trained there this summer while vacationing and it's an awesome pool -- this picture doesn't quite do it justice, but, trust me, it's nice: http://forums.usms.org/blog_attachment.php?attachmentid=564&d=1311833248. The town is great and on my list of places to return to chill out in.
