    It's definately not lack of swimmer interest. It's the lack of available pools/people willing & able to host a big event like a zone meet.

    First of all good pools are expensive to rent and if they're good pools then there's probably lots of competition for the available dates.

    Second of all it's a LOT of work to put on a meet of this size. It takes a lot of planning, a big time commitment from everyone on the meet committee and you have to be able to find a lot of volunteers 'cause a meet this size takes lots of timers. Then you get to the good part, get to see some great swimming, meet some wonderful people and everyone thanks you for putting on a great meet so all the hard work is worthwhile. But what is not fun is listening to all the complainers. Please don't start complaining about not liking the walls, the outside lane you're stuck in, the timeline is too fast, the timeline is too slow, you don't like the order of events, etc, don't say it or it'll scare one more person off from wanting to jump on the bandwagon and host a meet.

    Third of all anyone can host a meet. There's not some big list of meet directors in the sky just waiting around to host meets. If you want a meet, find a pool, design some awards/t-shirts, request a sanction, advertise your meet, hire your officials, type your entries (or use online entries.....much much easier), seed your meet, copy your heat sheets and show up at the pool for a great time!

    Yes, learned that the New England Championship meet is designated as the 2010 Colonies Zone SCM Championship. Look for official designation on the NE and zone web sites shortly.

    Ray -- do you have an estimated turnout for the meet? I know it is early but thought you might have a sense based on past meets. I was thinking about traveling in from Ohio. Thanks.

    Not sure, but I do know it's big. Other readers may have an idea.
    Here is a psych sheet from last year's meet, to give you a sense.

    Yes, thank you very much! It's appreciated, even if the meet doesn't come together.
