Fellow Swimmers

It is less than a year to start the first event of the XI FINA World Masters Championships.

The Organizing Committee has been working hard getting things ready for the event. The event book is being sent to the printers. It will soon be available on the WEB. The event book will have much of the information about the championships in it.

The Organizing Committee has secured rooms at 22 bay area hotels. We were able to secure discounted rates. In the past month we have sold out our allotment at three of those hotels. There are still many, many hotel rooms available and to secure the greatest choice, please go to the web site <http://www.2006finamasters.org>http://www.2006finamasters.org view the choices of hotels and chose one.

If you are planning for a group of ten or more, please contact Shannon Sullivan (<mailto:shannon@2006finamasters.org>shannon@2006finamasters.org). Shannon can help you with your selection of hotels.
