View Full Version : A "meet" just for fun

February 15th, 2017, 04:41 PM
Is anyone in a masters group that has a "meet" just for their members (and maybe their family members) to have fun and fellowship with each other's family members? No touchpads, just timers with stopwatches. My group swims only (not coached, just swim on your own) and chats but nothing else except for 1 invitational meet each year. I'd like to know how you make it work!

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Not quite the same thing, but on a similar note, the Adirondack USMS leadership has realized that they can get a little out of touch with members, so they are doing meet-n-greets with the various local groups.

For many years, we have run informal "All-Comer's Meets" for our team, one or two every winter before our Spring LMSC Championships. No sanction. No certified officials. As coach, I serve as the starter and stroke/turn judge, aiming for instruction and correction more than anything else. I have attached the flyer for our current meet; you have my permission to steal the idea, modify it to fit your situation, and run with it.

The Tucson Senior Olympics, no touch pads, lifeguard timers. One free t-shirt, one brought tee-shirt and one pin brought and two first placed medals in 50 and 100 yard breaststroke for 55 to 59 women.

That sounds like fun for the team!
