For once we have 2 SCM meets in the Northwest.The T Hills one day meet and then the big one http://www.usms.org/comp/event.php?MeetID=20121020PNZNS .

The SCM pendulum is swinging away from us this fall. Last fall there were three SCM meets in Oregon alone! (Plus two in PNA, two in Utah, and one in Alaska.) This fall is looking like slimmer pickings with the two you mentioned plus Alaska's meet and two in Utah. The Alaska meet and the first Utah meet both get asterisks due to technically occurring in the summer. The other Utah meet is a Senior Games so infants like myself cannot participate.

I'm going to the SCM in Modesto this Saturday. The only event I've ever tried SCM is the 1500, so I will be doing several lifetime PR's at age 50.

We'll possibly be having a SCM meet in Sandpoint, Idaho this fall/winter. I missed the conference call this last week, but they may have mentioned something about it. The pool is SCM, but it's nothing to write home about. Mainly the gutter system, or lack of, is the downfall of the pool. I remember swimming the 100 and 200 Fly there about 3 years ago, and it was "fun".
But it is another opportunity.

Good to know. Sandpoint is not much further than Coeur d'Alene. Depending on the timing, I might be able to get my family to trek out there.

Only a little over an hour more from CDA. But the meet is usually held in mid-November (at least in the past). I've got nearly a 4 1/2 hour drive, and doing that over and back the same day just isn't fun for me.

According to the ILMSA.com website there are two SCM meets with pending sanctions:


Libertyville Sink or Swim Classic (Oct 28) - SCM
Leaning Tower Pentathlon and Relays (Dec 2) - SCM


I think I will aim for the Libertyville meet. I haven't been in a meet in a couple years, and never swam SCM. I suppose I should swim as many as possible since they would all be personal bests. :D Not sure what the schedule will look like for the Leaning Tower meet.

I will almost certainly go to this one. The pool in Columbia is surprisingly fast, and the meet is very professionally run. Diann Uustal set two world records at this meet the last two years (both in Lane 1!), and the officials had the paperwork filled out almost before she got out of the pool. It's a really good meet.

It's my 4th event of the day
Saving up for the 800 SCM IM gridge with T.G.
Must still be tired from "overdoing it" with the age groupers.
Breaststroke's not my best (though not my ultimate worst either)
200 Breast needs to use more legs in it...I'm an upper body breaststroker.
"Who signed me up for this one?"

Very true Allen. Short course breaststroke is more about the pushoffs (leg strength) and pullouts (arm strength) moreso than the breaststroke swimming (and kicking that I suck at). If there is a video, it will show that I take the lead, and Allen starts moving up on each length...the trick is being far enough ahead at the end that he can't move up on me.

Heat 2 of the 200 Fly is going to be fun. I've got a race going with a younger lady who is two lanes over. I've researched her times from when she was younger in Oregon, and she's quite the swimmer.

Well, the race between the Louisville Lip and the Cagey Veteran was good, but Allen couldn't quite stay with James. Allen kept within a body length of James for most of the race, but couldn't hold on at the end and James took it 2:45 to 2:50. Potential spoiler That Guy overhauled Allen at the end for a 2:48.

Allen Stark
October 20th, 2012, 08:09 PM
Good swims by James and TG. I died at the end.Oh well,I just have to work harder so that I don't next time.2:45 is going to be tough to match for an old man in any case:cane:,but it gives me some incentive.
Now,would James and TG like to have a rematch next summer LCM?

Well, the race between the Louisville Lip and the Cagey Veteran was good, but Allen couldn't quite stay with James. Allen kept within a body length of James for most of the race, but couldn't hold on at the end and James took it 2:45 to 2:50. Potential spoiler That Guy overhauled Allen at the end for a 2:48.

:cry: for King Frog, but a well deserved :chug: to James and That Guy.

Thanks Elaine & Allen. Regridge....hmmm. LCM, I'll probably have to do it virtually some time this summer, because I highly doubt we'll be at the same pool doing the 200 Breast at the same time, but I'll more than likely have a 200 Breast at sometime over the summer.
The negative of LCM breaststroke... -4 pullouts :afraid: conclusion...Allen wins.

Throw in a 400 S.R. at the same time. I did that before too, though most of the time a stand alone 400 can beat the S.R. of a 1500. But should you never get the opportunity to race it, that's your chance.

The 400 IM is another great one for getting a 100 Fly S.R. in as well. Problem with it is that you have to finish the race legally after you've blown everything in the 1st 100. I did one like that last year. :)

I sent an email asking for a copy of the results today, but so far haven't heard anything. :dunno:

If you live in the Delaware Valley or NJ/NY area the Thanksgiving Classic is a good meet. It was held on November 10-11 this year. The pool is good and they have all the events over two days, so you will get rest between events. It is well run by the EEX age group team. :anim_coffee:

I am attaching the Southern Masters SCM Championships results from New Orleans, which I just got via email. It turns out that just after the meet the meet director had some health problems and then some computer problems - hence the delay. I expect they will show up on the Southern Masters website as well.
