    2009 LCM Nationals in Indy (IUPUI)

    OK, I don't have a life...I am already stoked about swimming in the IUPUI pool next August. I think I am one of the few (former) midwesterners who has not swum in that facility. Have always wanted to go to Nationals there but something always came up.

    Not in 2009!!!

    A bunch of us from Arizona are already planning on going. Yes, even Jeff (Short Course) Commings is going to be a part of this meet! It should be a fun and fast event. Digging the all relay day on Saturday, good job Mel and Kris!

    Anybody else stoked?

    As I remember from my last visit in the mid 1980s - great pool, crappy city...
    This bush league psyche-out stuff. Laughable, man - ha ha!

    I think you'll find that the city has changed dramatically since the mid 80's. They have the NCAA Hall of Fame, a canal walk through the center of the city, good museums, small but nice zoo, botanical gardens, and a AAA baseball field, all within a very short distance from the pool. The ISF crew puts on a great meet and a great social. Last social I went to was at the NCAA Hall of Fame.

    Au contraire, you gotta give Indy another chance. There are a number of good restaurants (try St. Elmo's shrimp cocktail before your sprint events -- it'll light you on fire), it's a simple city to get around, some good bed & breakfasts as well as all of the usual suspects of lodging. Stay downtown and you can walk anywhere you need to go in the evening for food and entertainment. If all that fails, head to the Claddagh Irish Pub for a great pint of Guiness.

    Here are my thoughts on Indianapolis (the city).

    VERY nice downtown, I was very impressed with it during my visits.

    Good airport too, never had any trouble getting in or flying out.

    Road system is excellent, however there are MANY Interstates that go through town.

    Word is the pool is fantastic and that the hosts always do a good job whenever they host nationals.

    However, most of Indianapolis is nothing to write home about. It was (is?) an industrialized town and has seen better days. Other than the USGP, the MotoGP race, or USMS Nationals, I would not make a stop there for vacation.

    That said, I am SOOOOOOOO looking forward to swimming there in 2009.

    Hi Meegan,

    I have the order of events for both nationals for next year and the qualifying times for SC Nationals in Clovis. I'll be finishing up getting everything in the database and will make them publicly available some time this week.

    LC nationals qualifying times for Indy won't be ready until some time after the final top 10 for LCM for this year are published (they're based on the recent 3 years of top 10 data).
    I can't remember a life before Google.
    Fortunately, I can Google it.

    Looking forward to it. I think the last time I swam there was NCAA's in 1990 or 1991 (can't quite remember). Great facility!

    Meegan,
    Welcome to your new age group! Looking forward to seeing you after so many years. I am skipping Fresno, but plan to go to Indy and Atlanta. Let me know if you travel to Colorado. Hope to make it to a ST. Pete one of these days...usually I am still skiing.

    Where do you find the order of events when they're made available?

    Hi Winnie,

    I hope to see you at Indy and St Pete too. I thought I had your email address, but can't find it.

    Normally they would be here:

    http://www.usms.org/comp/nationals.php

    ...but the Order of Events is not posted yet.

    OK, I am *really* excited about IUPUI and can't wait!

    I hope they split up the 1500 and 800. I would be nice for the distance folk to be able to do both if they like.

    You gave up the mile in Portland. Or are you reconsidering?

    EXCUSE me? I think someone has somehow suffered brain damage. I beleive there were comments about 'never again' and 'Ef MP' in there somewhere? Now I understand why there are some women who endure the ordeal of childbirth over and over again. Thier brains do not process for long term retention the agony endured.

    Perhaps it was similar to someone quitting the 100 fly at SCY nationals only to swim it in Portland?

    Soooooo,

    Since my plan is to go back to my roots as a Free/Flyer. What events would I swim?

    Thur
    50 Fly

    Friday
    100 Free

    Sat
    None - unless I sell my soul to another team. Any offers?

    Sun
    50 Free
    100 Fly - love that these are back to back

    Now that's 4 individual events. What should the other 2 be?

    200 Free on Thursday?
    200 Fly on Friday?
    400 Free on Sunday?
    200 IM on Sunday?

    Something else?
