    The Austin Grand Prix is the next in this series.
    Fri Jan 13th - Sun 15th

    I was just looking at the MEET INFO

    Some highlights from it were:

    THIS MEET WILL BE CAPPED AT 700 SWIMMERS

    Special Needs: A disability is defined as a PERMANENT physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Please notify the Texas Swimming Center at 512-471-7703 in advance of this event with the name and age of any member on your team who needs assistance to enter the building.

There are no exceptions to this prohibition. Violators are subject to disqualification from the meet, disbarment from the facility and arrest.

    The QTs for this meet are:

    Women LCM SCY / Event / Men SCY LCM

    4:30.69 5:03.29 400 FR 4:39.59 4:09.79
    1:05.79 0:58.49 100 FL 0:51.89 0:58.89
    5:09.69 4:33.09 400 IM 4:08.09 4:43.89
    2:09.09 1:54.19 200 FR 1:43.09 1:58.09
    2:25.99 2:06.99 200 BK 1:54.79 2:12.39
    0:27.79 0:24.59 050 FR 0:21.69 0:24.79

    9:15.99 10:21.29 800 FR / 1500 FR 16:13.69 16:41.69

    then the meet info also says

    Racing Start Proficiency: (Unaccompanied Swimmers) Swimmers entered in this meet must be certified by a USA Swimming member coach as being proficient in performing a racing start or must start each race from in the water. When unaccompanied by a member-coach, it is the responsibility of the swimmer or the swimmerís legal guardian to ensure compliance with this requirement.

    Anyone who can make one of those cuts without being proficient at a racing start is my new hero.

    Looks like the Men's QT headings are reversed - should be SCY, LCM.

    Re: 2012 2011 USA Swimming Grand Prix Meets

    Got this email about the Austin grand prix:

    Please see email below if you are interested in volunteering for the star-studded Austin Grand Prix! Remember masters login for Supermeets.com *is masters@ymail.com password- swimfast

    This is the first call for volunteers for the 2012 Austin Grand Prix, the upcoming meet at the Texas Swim Center January 13-15, 2012.* This is a very prestigious meet which will feature over 40 USA Swimming National Team members and Olympians including Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Natalie Coughlin, Brendan Hansen, and Janet Evans. We hope you are able to come watch some very fast swimming and help us showcase our world-class facility and program. It is very important to the success of Longhorn Aquatics and our meets that our members volunteer. Without volunteers we are forced to hire outside help which will increase our operational costs. Please help by signing up. Additionally, it is crucial that you work the shifts you have signed up for; trying to fill spots at the last minute causes a huge burden on the meet staff and ultimately affects the quality of our meets.
    *
    IMPORTANT NOTES (PLEASE READ):

    ∑******** Absolutely no requests for autographs on deck by our volunteers. The pool deck needs to a secure place for these athletes to prepare for their races. If you ask for an autograph you will be asked leave the deck and your volunteer points will be voided.

    ∑******** Sunday is a long session and the start time is 8:30am, though we will release volunteers as soon as possible during the 1500ís and hours worked past 1:30pm will be added to your total.

    ∑******** All volunteers receive a t-shirt and we ask that you wear it while on your shift. Please allow time to pick up your t-shirt. If you work multiple shifts, please wear bring it back for the following shift.

    ∑******** Our timelines are long and we need to be on schedule for TV taping (NBC), we really need everyone to be punctual to get the sessions started on-time.
    *
    *
    SIGNUP using SUPERMEETS- the database is available.
    You can sign up to volunteer using our web-based system SuperMeets at:
    http://www.supermeets.com/Index.cfm?...ackerClient=77
    *
    Information on the meet is available at:
    http://www.utexas.edu/longhornaquatics/index.php*(under Hosted Meets)
    It is a good habit to review the meet write-up for each meet.* Close to 100% of your questions can be answered with information in this write-up.
    NEVER USED SuperMeets before?
    Login with the email address you provided us with in your registration packet on the volunteer form. The default password is swimfast. Please change it once you login.

    JOBS and DESCRIPTIONS
    A description of volunteer positions can be reviewed here:* http://www.utexas.edu/longhornaquati...tunities.html* or you can click on a job within SuperMeets and a pop-up will appear with the job description.
    There is more on the volunteer requirements, tips, FAQ at http://www.utexas.edu/longhornaquatics/volunteer/
    *
    SOME JOBS*REQUIRE*TRAINING - INTERESTED? THEN SIGN UP FOR TRAINING

    Clerk of Course and Computer require training before you will be allowed to volunteer for them.* If you are interested in training for these positions, please email me with (1) what position you're interested in and (2) what session you're available.*If a trainer will be available, I'll set that up.* Training time counts toward your volunteer requirement, so long as you return to work in that position later in the season.***

    A few odds and ends:

    * TXLA OFFICIALS. Please register your intent to be on deck by using SuperMeets.* This helps facilitate getting your volunteers points recorded.* If*all the official slots are taken, please email*me and I can add more slots.* We*can always use more*officials on deck.

    **WANT TO BE AN OFFICIAL? *South Texas*is always looking for volunteers interested in being officials.* Having TXLA-based officials also helps with our USA Swimming Club rating.* Of course, volunteering as an official requires training also.**Contact Ann Nellis to inquire further.
    *
    * SYSTEM LOCKS.* Sign-up deadline is*1/10/12 at 6:00pm. Changes to your schedule after that need to be*communicated*via a phone call*to the Swim Center 471-7771.

    * REASSIGNMENT.* There are occasions when volunteers may be asked to accept a reassignment.* We try not to do this, but sometimes critical positions are not filled.
    *
    Thanks for volunteering - see you at the pool!

    Guess who is entered in the 400IM???? Going to be interesting to see where he is coming into the final stretch.

    Man, look at the top 8 women in the 100 Free, wow, who's who of American sprinters.

    That is definitely a surprise. Although who knows - if this is just a training meet for him his coach might be making him do it for kicks.

    I think Mark Gangloff entered a yards time in the 50 free (21.01). I think it is funny that even at a meet at this level people make that mistake (or his coach did).

    Re: 2012 2011 USA Swimming Grand Prix Meets

    It looks like USMS swimmer and formuite chowmi is the oldest in the meet, in the 50 free:
    122 Chow, Michelle H 43 Dallas Mustangs-NT 27.73 _____

    She might be in the same heat with another, er ah um, mature person:
    119 Blackburn, Lisa M 40 Una T2-FL 27.72 *____
    (The meaning of the astersk is not clear to me.)

    Blackburn is also in the 200 breast, 100 breast, 100 free and 200 IM. Her best seed is 30th, in the 100 breast.


    The most senior swimmer in the mens 400 IM is actually in the top 8!
    8 Yabe, Diogo O 31 BSS-FL/Ix3 4:21.49 _____

    The same is true in the womens 100 back:
    6 Molina, Fabiola P 36 BSS-FL/Ix3 1:00.43 _____

    May age and experience beat youth and vigor!

    Will she make OT cuts?
    She needs to drop about 1s/100 from her times this past summer.

    4:19.39 to make the OT in the 400. She went 4:22.8 in August. I think she will make it, but by how much ????

    I wish I were in Austin because I would certainly drop by to cheer her on. Go Janet!

    I know at Senior Nationals and Junior Nationals, the * means the swimmer is a foreigner (they may have been swimming in the US all their lives, but they don't hold US citizenship).

    I thought that too, but then Gemma Spofforth and Stephanie Proud are there, both British, both with no *. Maybe if they currently live outside the US they get a *?
    30something and way too young for my times
