Check it out. tjrpatt is in the 1500 fly!
One question though. Since it is SCY, why isn't this the 1650 fly?

that is just for the social on Saturday. I wouldn't do a 1500 fly, in yards. That sounds like hell.

When I moved to Arkansas from Ohio, I ended my YMCA membership with my local branch. Swam YMCA all through high school and YMCA Nationals was far and away the most fun meet I ever went to. If Masters Nats are anything like it, I bet it is a ton of fun. Wish I still swam YMCA :(

I also loved competing at the HoF center!

Calvin, I know that the South Hills YMCA (Pittsburgh area), which doesn't even have a pool, lets people from other states join for the purpose of swimming in Y masters meets. A bunch of folks from New Jersey do this every year. If you would like, you can try contacting Carol Ide at ciswimr@aol.com . I know she used to be the head of the team, and if this email still works, she can explain how you can sign up, etc. I think I will be seeing her at a meet this weekend, and I will let her know you might be emailing her.

Thanks Jim!

While I can't swing the trip this year (Greensboro is already on the calendar) I may pursue this in the future. Is that on a YMCA by YMCA basis? Like if my old YMCA allowed it, could I swim representing them for YMCA nationals but continue to represent my LMSC here in Arkansas for spring/summer nationals?

No fair. Nadine gets to swim it three times, but I only get to swim it once? :cry:

Hmmm...I wonder how far away you can be and still join. I'll soon be moving to a place that doesn't seem to have much in the way of a YMCA (Auburn, AL), but I would love to keep going to this meet in the future. I had a blast last year. Too bad work prevents me from going this time.

So, which one of you guys is bringing the laser to measure the pool, or do I need to stop at Walmart before I go? :canada:

The pool has already been measured. No bulkhead.

Yes they normally go "wall to wall" with the bulkhead running along one of the lanes for officials to walk along (at least that's how it was back when I was attending Nats in high school)

Is this a smiley beating a dead horse? I think I detect some vague connection to the past inherent in this post. Does this have something to do with the Canadian Nationals?:canada:
