    2008 Peachtree City Pentathlon, September 20

    The meet entry was sent out in the last GA Masters Newsletter on September 3. You can also find the meet entry here.

    This meet is hosted by the Southside Seals Swim Team and is Directed by our illustrious USMS President, Rob Copeland. It was a fun and fast meet last year.

    Anybody else going? Donna, (S)he-man, Tracy, swimcat, p_con, Lump, WPSWIMS, Slowswim, Tana, want2beafish, swimr4life, swimsuit addict?

    Mark, this will be the first time since I started that I won't be doing the Peachtree Pentathlon. This was the first masters meet I ever swam so it is special.

    I had to be on call at work that weekend so that I could have off for the National Convention the following week. I do plan to go next year though.

    I'll be looking for your swims in the results.

    See you there Glider! I wonder if the turnout will be sort of low - sort of a lactic acid practice like last year?!

    Hi All,

    I'm coming to the meet and am looking forward to meeting some area swimmers. I'll be heading back to New York on Saturday afternoon after a week in Alabama, and am psyched to have found a meet that is both in an outdoor pool (it is, isn't it?) AND right on the way to the airport--perfect! I signed up for the Ironman distance and am feeling a little nervous about all those 200 strokes now, though.

    Tough to say...but yeah, we were running on fumes last year, and I only swam the triathlon (3 BR events.)

    It IS outdoors. If you are coming up I-85, you might could say it's on the way to the airport, but if you are coming over on I-20, I'm pretty sure it's a little off the beaten path.

    Iím expecting about the same turnout as last year, maybe a few more swimmers. And Iíll slow it down a little, but part of the fun (?) is getting those 4 200ís and a 400IM all done in a couple of hours!

    So Rob, does this mean you are doing the long one this year?

    Swim one for me.

    If I can find someone to run the timing console, I'll jump up for the disntance pentathlon.

    I can't make it. Still stuck in DC. Good luck to all y'all! Have fun.

    Donna, Slow, Tracy...sorry you won't be there...I sent my entry in today.

    If you are local, you could still come and just go to the Georgia LMSC meeting afterwards. Good people and good food and you get to hear some of the direction and events going on in Georgia.

    So Mark, how did you do at the meet?

    Wish I could have been there. I'll be there next year.

    There was some fairly fast swimming by a few folks, unfortunately not any of it was by me. A few names I remember...D Jansen, O Gumbrill and S Mortimer swam fast. A certain (S)he's lane was always empty

    The LMSC meeting after the meet was enlightening. Good food...good coversation...Carol W puts out a spread.

    They still don't have a date locked for St. Nick's, so if they can't get GA Tech to find a 6-hour window sometime in November/December, they may drop the meet. That would suck...So, I may target the USAS GA Sr. State meet in December...

    We saw Atlanta's 2010 SCY USMS Championship bid presentation DVD and packet that will be presented at next week's convention. The meet will be hosted by DYNA and GA Tech - and the presentation was well done. It may be overkill, as a matter of fact, since it is the only bid.

    Mark failed to mention that he won the 50, 100 and 200 breast events! I don’t think he quite got the concept of a pentathlon.
