    Where do you park? I park on the side street for FREE. There is plenty of side street parking (and meter parking...25 cents/hour).

    Or take the train. Blue line runs right along the north edge of campus. It's about a 20-minute walk from Olgivie to the UIC pool.

    Re: ILMSA Short Course Championship

    I have a nice car.I have heard of stories of missing tires & wheels if parked on local side streets!! I will pay if I have to! I just think that since we are the event, that parking should be included in the meet fee!
    Other than that sticking point, UIC runs a great event & I will look forward to this.

    Re: ILMSA Short Course Championship

    Oz, you have to be a little more open minded about the city and people who live there.

    I've driven a Lexus and BMW to practice, meets and athletic events at UIC almost every day for the past 5 years. I've never had a problem, or seen a car broken into. I'm sure there is some crime everywhere, even Schaumburg.

    To Carls point, parking is free on meters on Sunday, and the side streets are generally very available. As a matter of fact, the Police Station is less than 200 yards from the pool, and on the side street Carl is refrencing.

    I'm all for rotating the meet to Elgin, Barrington, St Charles or wherever, but you have to realize UIC is very convient for hundreds of ILMSA swimmers.

    Oh...I liked that pool. I did the Tyr Series Meet at UIC and the parking garage was free on Saturday and Sunday; it was very handy!

    Robin, you may be thinking of the University of Chicago pool in Hyde Park. Very nice pool. UIC is farther North, off Roosevelt just West of Halsted. However, street parking is free off Roosevelt. And 25 cents an hour until 6 PM ( free Sunday) on the meters.

    Re: ILMSA Short Course Championship

    The TYR meet was at U of Chicago, not U of Illinois Chicago. The UIC pool is very fast and has more seating, which is good for the state meet.

    We should all be positive and supportive of the teams that are willing to tackle the enormous job of hosting this meet. Negativity is not productive.

    Sans doute, gentrification has taken place in the UIC area. It's unrecognizable from its seedy past.

    (And I wouldn't begudge the parking fees, for in the past there was the unofficial fee you paid to loitering gang members to "keep an eye" on your car.)

    If you can afford to swim in crisis time...you probably can pay $8.00 for parking...
    And if you are coach - you can get reimbursed by your club

    Look at it this way. They should be available to time your 10k postal swim!
