Does anyone know when online entries are expected to be available?

June 21st, 2004, 07:55 AM
On line entries should be available later today, so stay tuned.

On line entries are now available at http://www.usms.org/comp/lcnats04/onlineentry.shtml.

I entered using an online entry and received a reply but still had to send this with a check. Will USMS send another notification once they have received my check. If they didn't receive my check for some reason, will they let me know? This is my first national meet; I'm afraid of something going wrong with the registration!

Yes, you will receive a confirmation when your check has been processed (none of these have gone out yet - they'll probably start going out early next week). We apologize for the inconvenience of having to send a check in. Normally you pay for your entry in real time with a credit card. This is the only time for nationals that the check payment will be required and is a result of a problem obtaining the USMS merchant account from our chosen company. There was another thread about this at http://forums.usms.org/showthread.php?threadid=2978 .

Just got my confirmation today. 2nd best news, behind the dropping of the 6th event. (Which for me was the 400 IM... I tried a 100 fly recently and regretted it. :D )

I did the online entry, and mailed the check on July 6th, if anyone else is still waiting.

I mailed my check on the same date and entered on line but have heard nothing yet
Hope it comes soon. This makes me nervous, anxious and all the
things that have to do with waiting.

i got an email confirmation yesterday that my payment was recieved. i would guess you should be hearing very soon on yours. good luck!:)

I entered in late June and sent the check immediately and still haven't received confirmation. Now I'm panicking! Who should I contact to find out if my information was received?

July 23rd, 2004, 01:16 PM
i wouldn't panic yet... i sent my entry (electronically) and the check on the same day (june 23rd), and JUST got confirmation back yesterday that my check was received.

I also sent my check June 23. The check has been cashed and I have a copy of it, but no confirmation. Should I contact someone, or will a copy of the cancelled check be enough?

If in doubt, contact the meet director. Scott’s contact information can be found at –

Everyone needs to chill. If you entered online then have proof of entry. Start worrying about the swims and not the entry. It's all going to be fine.

Should have said "If you entered online then you have proof of entry".

Don't worry, I'm thinking about my swims too, but just this year I entered a meet, drove four hours to swim in it only to find meet officials lost my information and I was hastily thrown into the meet and swam in slow heats. So, after having dealt with that once, I'd hate to go through it again. But I emailed Jim the webmaster and he said everything was all set, so I'm chilling.

A psyche sheet and team entries will be posted as well. If you aren't in those then it's time to worry and contact people. They said they'll be out late this week and I'm sure they are working as hard as they can. Don't forget that the meet will be deck seeded so even if they put someone in late, they'll end up in the correct spot. Let's give them a break and let them get it done.
